"Sesame Street" is spoofing its fellow PBS show "Downton Abbey" on Feb. 4 with "Upside Downton Abbey."
As you can see in the clip above, the Dowager Countess and butler Mr. Carson are having some issues with the topsy turvy take on the British series. Carson just can't seem to get the Countess her tea, or crumpets, before they fall to the ceiling. Things get back to normal with she agrees to the change the name of the estate to Right Side Upton Abbey.
Guest stars scheduled to appear in the 43rd season of "Sesame Street" include Kristen Bell, Jon Hamm, Matt Kemp, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Melissa McCarthy, Paula Patton, Amy Ryan, Donald Glover, Kareem Abdul Jabar, Bobby Moynihan and Dax Shepard.
According to a press release, the new episodes continue to focus on the five tenets of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) through fun adventures like a show where Grover, Elmo, and Rosita imagine that they are paleontologists digging to find fossils, and an episode where Oscar plans to create a painting that is so horrible it will make everyone on Sesame Street mad, only to have Abby point out the only person he has angered is himself.
