Cookie Monster volunteers to join 'The Hungry Games - Catching Fur' where he must solve puzzles to eat food and win the game.
"Sesame Street" uses "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" to teach kids about patterns. Just in time for the movie release, the long-running children's series parodies the highly-anticipated action movie in a newly-debuted clip.
The 5-minute clip follows Cookie Monster as Cookieness Evereat, who volunteers to join "The Hungry Games". After winning it, he's back for the second edition joined by a pita bread (a spoof of Josh Hutcherson's Peeta), Finnicky (a riff on Sam Claflin's Finnick) and Tick Tock (a parody of Amanda Plummer's Wiress).
They run through the jungle and solve puzzles in order to win. Just when Cookieness is relieved that he has completed the challenge, Finnicky warns him that there will be a third one.
A sequel to 2012's hit movie "The Hunger Games", "Catching Fire" will open wide in U.S. theaters on November 22. Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson return as the lead actors, while Francis Lawrence replaces Gary Ross as the director.
