Sesame Street's Downton Abbey Parody

Watch Sesame Street Spoof Downton Abbey in a Hilarious New Video

Leave it to Sesame Street to transform Mama's favorite cult show into a hysterical skit for toddlers just learning their ABCs. To kick off the show's 43rd season on Feb. 4, two Muppets transform into Downton Abbey's Violet Crawley and Charles Carsongain — complete with English accents and period costumes — in a parody skit called "Upside Downton Abbey." The puppets try their hands at eating traditional British foods like tea and crumpets, but keep dropping everything, leading the colorful Dowager Countess to exclaim, "Well, of course everything is upside down. This is Upside Downton Abbey!”

Sesame Street has a long history of spoofing popular culture to capture the attention of both tots and their parents. Among our favorite recent parodies are "True Mud," a take on True Blood, and Cookie Monster's perfectly toddler-friendly "Share It Maybe," a fun rewrite of "Call Me Maybe". Take a look at how they turn things right side up, and be sure to tune in to the 43rd season of the legendary show, which will also feature visits from Kristen Bell, Jon Hamm, Melissa McCarthy, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Dax Shepard, and more.
