See, this is actually a perfect sketch for the muppet show, but as there is no muppet show, sesame street picks up the slack.

Their Sons of Poetry spoof of Sons of Anarchy is also fun.

I saw this earlier today. It's rather well done, but I have absolutely no idea what it possibly is supposed to be teaching children.

I've never seen Homeland, but wow, was that funny.

It probably gets parents to watch with their children. Similar to the jokes in kids movies that are directed towards adults.

Arguably more coherent than the average homeland episode, too.

Well, it's teaching the meaning of the idiom "A wolf in sheep's clothing" so that's something. I mean, back in the day, how long did Cookie Monster and Kermit go over the attributes of an orange? Sesame Street sketches don't have to be information-dense.

The plot lines were more plausible too!

Stay tuned for next season, when Caarrie continues making sheep's eyes at Baarody, Dana constantly feels like the black sheep of the family, and Abu Baaazir decides he might as well be hanged for a sheep as for a lamb. It's unbaaalievable. Literally.

Also, everything about Sheep Saul is fantastic.

I thought about leaving a smart comment but then realized...I'm a grown-ass man watching SS´╗┐ sketches half-drunk and alone at my computer. Nothing I say has merit here.

This pretty much sums it up.

As has been pointed out here before, these provide an age appropriate hook for the pop culture references with which the wee ones are no doubt inundated. I would imagine its empowering for the young mind to have those "I get that reference!" moments when the grownups are taking or they come across it in other media.

It's the characters that keep me watching. Dang, I like Saul. One of the best acting performances on television.

Don't be deceived by wolves in sheep clothing no matter how hot they are!

I do not care for the Homeland credits, but the OP link skips the rather well done pastiche of them. Worth going back to the start of the video for.
