'Mad Men' Gets a Parody From 'Sesame Street'


'Mad Men' Gets a Parody From 'Sesame Street'


Making some upgrades in its 40th year, 'Sesame Street' will input some jokes about 'Mad Men' which only adults would understand its full meaning.

During the Television Critics Association tour, PBS' executive vice president announced that "Sesame Street" will pick on "Mad Men". On the panel held Saturday, August 1, Miranda Barry announced that "Sesame" will parody the AMC drama for the muppet show's 40th anniversary.

"You may have seen our parody called 'Desperate Houseplants'," Barry explained on how they would translate the drug, sex and booze-filled show to a program for children. "It was about a houseplant not getting its needs met by the gardener. So it always works on two levels."

Dr. Rosemarie Truglio, the senior vice president of the education research, chimed in, " 'Sesame Street' has always been written on two levels. And the children don't understand these parodies, but the adult does. ...Think about the title 'Mad Men' and think about the emotional curriculum that might be linked to that."

The 40th anniversary episode is scheduled to be aired on November 10, featuring a new host Murray Muppet. The curriculum this year will highlight on science and nature along with other important issues.
