Sesame Street Gets After Glee

I don't remember Sesame Street being quite so into spoofs and/or rip offs when I was growing up, then again it isn't like you remember everything that happens when you're a kindergartener so who knows if this is a new thing or not.

Which is all just to say that I really enjoyed the Sesame Streets sponsorship by the Letter G the other day...

It helps that I've been sucked into the Glee vortex so I get all of the references and know who the characters are, which lets me say this is really spot on, right down to the jokes about the teacher's use of hair product.

It has to go way over the heads of the majority of Sesame Street's viewers and target audience though (doesn't it?).  I suppose it's nice to be able to have some actual learning about the letter g and the sounds that makes wrapped up in some nods to an older audience who is probably watching along.
