Sesame Street does 30 Rock - VIDEO

sesame streetI remember watching Sesame Street when I was little, but I do not remember it being this awesome. We're used to celebrities appearing on the Street, but it's not very often that we get to see Muppets portraying our favorite TV characters. I for one, never knew that the denizens of Sesame Street were so good at impressions until I saw the Muppet version of Jack Donaghy. Oh, you read that right. Jack Donaghy.

Sesame Street has done a take on 30 Rock called "30 Rocks." In it, Liz Lemon, a lemon with glasses, has to figure out how to make sure that the 30 rocks she ordered for a sketch are all there. Jack (who, unfortunately no longer has a chin) comes out to help her with the solution, which consists of passing off the work load, "I'm the boss Lemon; you count."

Check out the video after the jump.

What's amazing is how dead-on the impressions actually are. Replace the Muppets with humans, and you have a half decent SNL skit on your hands. The voices aren't dead on, but the timing is.

What I want to know is if the folks at Sesame Street just did this for their own amusement, or if they're making an effort to entertain the parents watching the show with their kids. I kind of hope it's the former; it's their 39th season, after all. Why not have some fun?

Both 30 Rock and Sesame Street film at the Kaufman Astoria Studios. There's probably some cross-pollination.

Even not having watched 30 Rock, that was still funny, and way more savvy than the Sesame Street of my generation. Thanks for the link!
