Sesame St meets Downton Abbey

Riding on the coattails of their own musical success, Sesame Street have made a string of spoofs for kids based on popular adult TV shows.

The latest spoof is of Downton Abbey, following on from take-offs of Mad Men, True Blood and Boardwalk Empire.


The makers of Sesame Street have not lost their minds but have managed to rework these shows for a much younger audience with an entertaining and educational result.

We're sure you will enjoy them - maybe even more than your children.
