5 Rue Sesame

The French have had Sesame Street for years, but it seems that now they want to produce their own shows, rather than just dub over American shows.

"But certain American puppets are gone, including one that you might expect could rattle French sensibilities: 'Sesame Street's' floppy-armed front man, Kermit the Frog."

Hi-larious. And don't miss the comments on Ace's post.

Of course, SobekPundit readers already know how to give the show that certain "edge" it's been lacking.

More: I've found a picture of the new cast. For comparison purposes, here's the American version:

Hey kids, let's learn about the letter Q!

And the French version:

Life is pain!


It's not really topical, because everyone knows there aren't any Mormons in France, but Supernatural Rabbit Scribe thought it might be appropriate to re-post my picture of this Very Special Sesame Street Episode:

Featuring new songs entitled "Throw a Tantrum Until Mommy and Daddy Get Baptized," and "If You Drink Pepsi, You'll Go to Outer Darkness." Um, also that looks like an Argentina flag on the wall in the background, so again, it's not really topical. But hey, what Supernatural Rabbit Scribe wants, Supernatural Rabbit Scribe gets.
