For over 40 years, Sesame Street has been a go-to source for quality children’s fun combining education and crazy nipper characters. But lately, the word on the street has been Sesame’s hilarious parodies of adult-themed shows. The best kids shows are the ones that keep the parents involved. So from the makers of True Mud, Upside Downton Abbey, and Big Birdman comes their latest, House of Bricks, which you can watch here below.
Capitalizing on the popularity of Netflix hit show House of Cards (returning for a third season next week), here the story is about Frank Underwolf, yep, the big bad wolf with Kevin Spacey’s patented southern drawl, as he looks to take down three political pigs in Washington, DC.
The bit incorporates many House of Cards regularities like Frank’s to-the-camera narration, on-screen text messages, and political humor (too much “pork” in this town). The best part, the pigs trick him into entering the White Brick House only to blow it down on him because… well you guessed it, it was only a house of cards! Brilliant. Still the best kids show on TV!
Sesame Street is on at 7am EST on PBS, while House of Cards launches its third season on Netflix on Friday, February 27, 2015. Season 1 and Season 2 of House Of Cards are available now on DVD and Blu-ray as well as through Amazon Instant Video and Netflix streaming — check out the Season 3 trailer.
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.
