Watch Sesame Street’s “Downton Abbey” Parody

Like my colleague Melanie, who wrote about last week’s episode of “Downton Abbey” and eclampsia, I am a big fan of the popular British drama. And it’s funny seeing all the different parodies and spoofs of the show (the more PG-rated ones being “Downton Arby’s” and “Downton Abbey Canine Actors“).  The latest parody is from Sesame Street, called “Upside Downton Abbey.”

You’ll see and hear the show’s familiar opening credits (except everything is, of course, upside down) before two Muppets appear (Carson, the butler, and the Dowager Countess).  Hilarity ensues as the Dowager Countess tries to have afternoon tea…but nothing will stay put long enough!  This parody will officially air on PBS on Monday, Februrary 4.
