    This True Blood parody marks the first time special effects were used on Sesame Street, and they absolutely nailed that opening sequence.

    G is for genius, which is what this Glee parody is. We dare you to try not to sing along with Mr. Gooster and his "G club."

    Even iconic commercials get Muppified, and this one is perfection from start to finish. Forget that hot guy, Grover will make you want to "Smell like a monster."

    Can't wait for the final season of Downton Abbey? This hilarious version will delight you in the meantime. Where else would you get to see the Dowager Countess take a kidney pie to the head?

    Even the bloodiest, deadliest show, Game of Thrones is not off limits, and Grover manages to make it adorable and hilarious, turning murder (NSF kids) into a game of musical chairs (so kid-friendly).
