‘Sesame Street’ to Parody ‘Mad Men’; Elmo Gets a Fairy-in-Training Rival

Aug 3, 2009  •  Post A Comment

PBS’ kids series “Sesame Street” plans a smoke- and drink-free parody of AMC’s “Mad Men” this season, reports Jezebel.com, which speculates on the Muppet casting (think Prairie Dawn as Peggy Olson, Lefty the Salesman as Don Draper and Elmo in the role of Pete Campbell.)

Meanwhile, the New York Post says that the show’s star, Elmo, is getting a rival in the upcoming season, its 41st, when Muppet Abby Cadabby, a three-year-old fairy-in-training, gets her own nine-minute-long daily segment.
