'Glee' Spoofed by 'Sesame Street' (Video)
A day after Glee's season three premiere, Sesame Street debuted a new spoof of Fox's hit show.
The clip aims to teach kids about the two different sounds the letter "G" makes and features Muppet look-alikes of several characters from the show, including Rachel, Mr. Schuester and Sue Sylvester.
The members of the "G" club have a bit of an argument about how to pronounce it. Then the letter "G" shows up, and the group -- led by "Mr. Gooster" -- launches into a song to the tune of Journey's "Don’t Stop Believin'," which was featured in the Glee pilot.
"Just a small-town G," the song starts out, then later launches into the chorus: "Don't stop your G-ing, there's two sounds that you're hearing."
"That was grand," says the letter G after the song is over.
To which the Sue Sylvester Muppet responds: "Well if you ask me, it was gruesome."
Glee’s Tuesday premiere was watched by 8.9 million viewers Tuesday night and earned a 4.0 in the adults 18-49 demo, a decrease of 29 percent from the second season premiere a year ago.
Sesame Street’s 42nd season kicks off Monday.
