'Sesame Street' spoofs 'Downton Abbey': How do you like their Lady Violet?




"Downton Abbey" can officially say it's a hit in the U.S. if "Sesame Street" is getting in on the action. The children's program has a long history of spoofing the hippest things in pop culture, which is so thoughtful of them for the parents whose kids are watching the show.

There was a great "Mad Men" send-up a few years ago and a "Law & Order: Special Letters Unit" skit we also enjoyed. This "Downton" send-up is called "Upside Downton Abbey," teaching kids about being upside-down.

We think "Sesame Street's" Mr. Carson is pretty spot-on, but their Lady Violet could use some work being more snarky, maybe. Heh.
