'Sesame Street' Parodies 'True Blood'

With next week's Sesame Street premiere coming up, the following snip-it will get parents and kids alike excited for a season of puppetry and learning: It's a parody of the notoriously raunchy True Blood. Of course, the children's show takes out the gore and sex, making True Mud appropriate for its "rated G" audience.

This is just one of the many pop culture references the show plans on making throughout the season. Viewers can also expect appearances from Oprah Winfrey, former American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi, and more.
