‘Sesame Street’ Scores with ‘Homeland’ Parody

Showtime thriller is latest in venerable kidvid show's string of smallscreen spoofs

“Homelamb” isn’t a typo. It’s the spot-on “Sesame Street” parody of Showtime’s political thriller “Homeland,” featuring Carrie Mathison and Saul Berenson as sheep and Nicholas Brody as a wolf in sheep’s clothing — literally.

Sesame Street” unveiled its take on the Emmy-winning drama on Monday, all the way down to a Muppet version of the title sequence, complete with dramatic imagery and smooth jazz. The enemy is the Big Bad Wolf, and the only man thought to be able to stop him is Nicholas Ba-a-a-a-rody.

However, a frantic sheep Mathison sees through his disguise and notices his wolf eyes and ears, having to work against the other sheep who consider him a hero. The parody even touches on Claire Danes’ character’s troublesome lust for Brody, as the sheep version can’t help but find herself attracted to him.

“Sesame Street” has taken on several adult series over the years, including “Sons of Anarchy,” “Boardwalk Empire,” “Mad Men,” “Desperate Housewives” and “Downton Abbey.” The PBS show even tweeted out a poster for “Homelamb” as well.
