The Muppets Greatest Spoofs and Parodies

On July 10, 2010, Sesame Street posted a video on YouTube featuring Cookie Monster called, “Share it Maybe” which  is obviously a spoof of Carly Rae Jepsen’s song, “Call Me Maybe.” Since then, the video has had over 21,752,300 views! The great thing about this is that a large percentage of the viewers are adults.




This isn’t the first time Sesame Street or the Muppets have made headline with viral videos. In case you have missed them, here are ten more of the best spoofs of recent years. Enjoy!

In June of this year, the show did a spoof of Orange is the New Black:


In 2010, Katy Perry produced a spoof of her “Hot N Cold” song with Elmo for Sesame Street but her outfit was too racy for some parents, so it was never aired on the show. However, the video received many views on YouTube.



Also in 2010, The Muppets Studios produced a version of “American Woman” 
featuring Sam the Eagle.


 In 2013, a "Muppetsode" was created featuring the Swedish Chef vs. Chef Gordon Ramsay.


In 2010, a slightly morbid version of “Stand by Me” was produced with a bunch of cute bunnies and one blue monster.


In April of 2017, Sesame Street aired their take on the Real Housewives TV series:



And in 2015 the show did a spoof of Game of Thrones:



And then there was the time in 2009 when Beeker, the Swedish Chef and Animal presented  “Habanera.” 


In 2015, Mike Thompkins and the Muppets did an a cappella take on the song "Cook Kids"



But one of the all-time bests was the 2009 "hit" of the Muppets performing "Bohemian Rhapsody."
