'Sesame Street loves parodying popular culture that children don't understand' - has this still been happening in more recent years? Have they toned it down or otherwise tweaked the practice at all?
oh and don't forget their Twin Peaks pastiche, "Twin Beaks." That one was downright creepy (and hilarious).
"Twin Beaks" also gets double parody points because it was presented as a segment of "Monsterpiece Theatre" which in turn is a parody of Masterpiece Theatre. So yeah, they've always done this and they will continue to do this.
> It's how you're introduced to references, by BEING INTRODUCED TO REFERENCES.
Right, so Sesame Street is to blame for postmodernism and hipsters.
That's not a good thing.
More like this, EH:
And "references" doesn't mean quipping quotes as one-liners. It means recognizing allusions to other people, works, and culture.
If you get any more cynically obtuse, you're going to need a knitted scarf, Clark Kent glasses and a trilby.
