Sesame Street Spoofs The Hunger Games

Presented with a pop-culture phenomenon called The Hunger Games, Sesame Street had to do the obvious: parody it with endless cookie puns.

Starring Cookie Monster as Cookieness Evereat, the spoof has Cookieness and co. solving a series of food-related puzzles (“hungry games”), which are, of course, made for children. Still, it also stars a pita (as Peeta) and features lots of dramatic footage of Cookie Monster running through the arena in a bad Katniss wig, so it also delivers for adults who are into this kind of silliness. May the cookies be ever in your flavor.
