'Sesame Street' parodies 'Glee' perfectly: Watch and learn!

Today’s PopWatch post is brought to you by the letter ‘G’, as in, “Greatest Glee parody ever!” Leave it to Sesame Street to teach a lesson about the grooviest letter in the alphabet, all while doing the most spot-on spoof of Glee that you’ve ever seen.

In fact, if you closed your eyes, it would actually be kind of hard to tell where regular Glee ends and Sesame Street Glee begins (or G, if you will.) Puppet Rachel is still a diva with an unwavering crush (“I like you Finn, I’m looking at you longingly!”), puppet Schuester (complete with chin dimple!), now Mr. Gooster, is overly-encouraging to the point of annoying, and puppet Sue is still getting in zingers (“You know enough about gel, Gooster, you use enough of it.”) Complete with a musical number (“Don’t Stop Your G’ing”) and inside jabs (“Good thing we have a big budget!”), the ingenious parody could have very well just solved the season 3 dilemma for Glee: Have more puppets. Watch the full hilarious clip below:

What did you think of Sesame Street‘s spoof of Glee, PopWatchers? Which one-liner got you? (“I wasn’t asking you Gooster, I was asking the funny shaped kid!”) Do you prefer puppet Kurt to actual Glee Kurt? Share in the comments section below!

    This was way more entertaining than the actual show.

    • Potch

      There’s always got to be a stupid sour apple that has to be a jerk. If you hate the show, LEAVE IT ALONE. We love it, it’s not going anywhere, so keep your hate speech to yourself.

      • Seriously

        That was not hate speech. It was also right about the show (“I’ll probably dorwn you all out anyway”), and the Muppets sing way better than the cast of Glee.

    I am speechless with …. dare I say it…. GLEE! lol That was ah-maaaazing! Sesame Street is still fantastic and clever and funny for both kids and adults–something the Barney crowd never got. Plus, you can’t go wrong with puppets. Just ask Angel.

    • jcb1628

      Muppets + Angel = Pure Happiness!
      Smile Time is one of my all time favorite tv episodes ever! Muppet Angel getting his vampire face on gets me every time!

      • gingersmom

        I love that episode of Angel, it cracks me up everytime. I hate Glee so there’s really no contest here. My sister watched the show the first season and can’t stand it now.

    • abadstroller

      Soooo funny!

  • person

    “I’m staring at you longingly, Finn” LOL

  • Topanga

    I second that – the Muppets take first place! Are you watching, Ryan Murphy?

  • jjmmtt

    Pitch perfect! Glee really should talk to Sesame Street’s writers for inspiration.

    • Eric

      Not quite. “Rachel’s” nose was too small.

  • UGH

    Of course it was done perfectly.
    Every episode of Glee is the same.

    • Eric

      Really. Not a lot of room for error. They should’ve had one of those old codgers from Fraggle Rock or Oscar The Grouch as Ryan Murphy, dictating what songs should be used and what artists are garbage for not giving permission.

  • elena

    Watched this yesterday, so brilliant. Who knew that Sesame Street would become this spot-on vehicle for pop culture parodies. I kinda love you even more now, Sesame Street.

  • Zturk

    A for Awesome.

  • Untitled

    “Good thing we have a big budget!” So perfect.

  • Carly

    Ah-mazing! I love how they even have the piano guy!!

    • Nicole

      That was my favorite part, too.

  • Ripley

    Better writing, better acting – I love it! But the Brad Ellis muppet was the best!

  • Sara

    Definitely better than the show at this point!

  • Yoyo

    Only thing missing was Geetana

    • tommymommy

      and “G”ina!

      • Shamus N.

        It was ironic that she wasn’t on there because she was actually on Sesame Street as a child. Otherwise, it was hilarious.

  • Crystal

    That pretty much owned everything.

  • Mr. Effing Tea Party

    I gave up on Sesame Street after they killed off Mr. Roper. I don’t like it!

    • Kyle

      Sesame killed Mr. Roper? Did he sell the store to Mr. Furley? I think you mean Mr. Hooper…

      • Julia Putnam

        the most hilarious thing I’m going to read today! Thanks, Kyle.

      • Mr. Effing Tea Party

        That’s exactly my point! Sesame Street had NO RIGHT to interfere with that character of another show. It’s like big government trying to control my life. I don’t like it!

    • Jennifer

      They didn’t “kill him off”. The actor, Will Lee, died in real life. The show decided to talk about what really happened instead of sweeping it under the rug.

      • Mr. Effing Tea Party

        That’s just what the lamestream media wants you to think. Hooper didn’t like that his taxes were going towards helping homeless freeloaders like Oscar the Grouch and so he spoke out about it. But as soon as he spoke out, BOOM! they busted a cap in his @ss, (Hoopers not Oscars). That’s when I stopped watching.

    • CoolAid

      You mean Mr. Hooper? They didn’t kill him off, he died. IRL.

      • Mr. Effing Tea Party

        BS, I want to see his death certificate. I don’t like!

    • @ Mr. Effing Tea Party

      I am just going to assume that you are joking and aren’t serious about this at all. That actor that played Mr. Hooper died. Please tell me this is a joke and you aren’t a Sesame Street conspiracy theorist. Please tell me I am wrong after reading all your comments. PLEASE.
