Sesame Street heads to Litchfield with 'Orange Is The New Snack' parody
Sesame Street is paying tribute to the ladies of Litchfield.
Before Orange Is The New Black season 5 premieres on Friday, Sesame Street has shared a (G-rated) parody of the Netflix show. The goofy 5-minute clip moves the action from Litchfield Penitentiary to Litchfield Academy, where a cheerful new girl named Piper Snackman introduces her fellow inmates students to the joys of eating healthy.
In addition to the pitch-perfect parody of the show’s opening credits, the clip introduces characters like Morello, who’s obsessed with her boyfriend Christopher; Red, the strict Russian snack monitor; and the appropriately named “Googly Eyes.”
Jenji Kohan’s absorbing ensemble dramedy, based on Piper Kerman’s memoir of the same name, takes viewers inside the walls of Litchfield, a minimum security women’s prison where nothing’s as simple as it seems—especially the inmates.
