Sesame Street: The Hunger Games Parody (Hungry Games - Catching Fur)

With Hunger Games: Catching Fire out today, what's more appropriate than a Sesame Street parody of the movie called Hungry Games - Catching Fur?

Not to mention, I can never resist these clever Sesame Street parodies.

This one features Cookie Monster as Hungry Games participant Cookieness Evereat who volunteers because there are cookies.

It even has some fun with Evereat by breaking the fourth wall and acknowledging that being the strong female heroine of a successful film franchise is hard work.

Evereat's companions in the games are Finicky, a picky eater and Pita, who is literally a piece of pita bread.

Is it me or does that piece of bread actually kind of look like Josh Hutcherson?

Ballin' Oates: Hip Hop and Hall and Oates Together at Last

There's something so right about this mashup of Hall and Oates and hip-hop songs called Ballin' Oats from the DJ Scott Melkin and his Melkin Project.  The title is just great by itself.

It doesn't seem obvious that mixing "Maneater" with Wu-Tang's "C.R.E.A.M" would result in such a great song but it does.  Maybe it's because Hall and Oates were always funk soul brothers.

There are four other tracks with hip hop artists such as T.I. and Kanye West that aren't quite as good although interesting enough.

This weird but successful combination can be summed up with this fake Simpsons product.

Sesame Street Homeland Parody: Homelamb

Sesame Street keeps cranking out quality parodies of hit shows with their Homeland parody Homelamb.

I have to imagine these things go way over children's heads, but they're still great.  In fact, it functions as a pretty accurate depiction of season one of Homeland.

Lamb puns and things such as Baaah-rody and Caaah-rie shouldn't be this amusing although they are.  It even nails Carrie's weird sexual obsession Brody without getting inappropriate.

This Muppet version of Homeland might even be able make the Dana character tolerable, which would be doing the impossible.
