Sesame Street turns True Blood into True Mud

Sesame Street will Parody Top Adult Cable Show
When Sesame Street starts it’s 41st season on September 27, 2010 it will include a parody of the opening scene, which takes place in Merlotte’s Bar & Grill, in season 1 of HBO’s True Blood.
It starts with a redone version of the show’s opening musical sequence showing children stomping around in mud interspersed with pictures of Oscar the Grouch. It then transitions to a scene, complete with muppet versions of cook Lafayette Reynold, waitress Sookie Stackhouse, lightning fast Bill Compton and Sheriff Bud Dearborn, that focuses on “Bill” badly in need of True Mud.
These southern accented characters use the situation to both speculate if “Bill” is a Grouch and to teach rhyming by not bringing “Bill” what he asked for, instead they bring him things that have words that rhyme with mud.
We can only wonder if Alan Ball has a cross over is in the works for season 4. Can’t you just see the Count in the bottom left of the screen counting each episodes deaths? Or maybe Oscar popping out of the Dumpster at Merlotte’s when Arlene takes out the trash?
