Sesame Street Does Downton

Good lord. Monday, February 4th begins the 43rd season of Sesame Street. Remember these guys?

Those were the good old days, when I could be smug about being able to count faster than the Count, and Oscar the Grouch was surprisingly brown. (I still can’t believe they let Mr. Hooper die. Way to go, issues-based 70s television!) But as elephant bells gave over to skinny jeans, so has Sesame Street switched from Flower Power to charming parodies that skewer British television and blow children’s minds by undermining their trust in gravity.

Watch with me, people, and marvel at the eerie accuracy of Muppet Dowager Countess and Muppet Mr. Carson in Upside Downton Abbey.
