Sesame Street parodies ‘House of Cards’ with ‘House of Bricks’

house of cards

Wow, Sesame Street is being edgy! First, they created a parody of Birdman using Big Bird and his creator Carol Spinney. Now, it seems they have taken a piece out of Netflix’s hit show House of Cards and created a story about the Big Bad Wolf and the three little pigs. It’s a little odd to have an adult show being parodied to fit their kid target audience, but they did a pretty good job on making it like the show.

There is Mr. Frank UnderWOLF who is trying to take over the white brick house and knocking down a few houses along the way. It’s hilarious because he has the same self monologue and Southern accent as Kevin Spacey’s House of Cards character Mr. Frank Underwood. I guess this is a treat for the parents of the children watching PBS with their kids. Who knew parodying a ruthless politician could be so educational?

From Sesame Street:

Some people say there’s too much pork in this town. Frank Underwolf could not agree more. And that is why Mr. Underwolf is on a mission to huff and puff and blow down all the little pigs’ houses. In this town, you have to know which way the wind is blowing, and unfortunately, for those little piggies, it’s about to get very windy.

You can catch Sesame Street in the morning and the afternoon, weekdays on PBS.
