3 Times Sesame Street Has Hilariously Parodied an HBO Series


HBO just announced that it has struck a deal to air Sesame Street for the next five years on the network. The iconic show, which has aired on PBS for 45 years, will start running on HBO later this fall. Don’t worry: The show will continue airing on PBS following a nine-month window during which HBO has exclusive rights to run it. Big Bird and co. have have had an ongoing relationship of sorts with the premium cable network, producing amusing spoofs of some of HBO’s most popular shows under the moniker “GrouchBO.” Expect more hilarious send-ups like these when Sesame Street officially joins the HBO lineup.
