Muppet Newsflash: Law and Order SVU

27 Jan

I don’t know why I don’t run Muppet news that often . . . I guess I kinda missed the whole Fraggle Rock era, and a bunch of other missing pieces from my misspent 20s and 30s. But this piece earlier this week from Muppet Newsflash is just too good not to re-blog:

Universal Home Entertainment is planning the DVD release of “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit – The 6th Year“. The box set of the New York City crime drama will be released on April 1, 2008 and aside from the 23 episodes the set will include a fun Muppety extra. The set is said to include the 4-minute Sesame Street sketch “Law and Order: Special Letters Unit” as a bonus feature.

Produced for Sesame Street’s 37th season, the sketch features an alphabet parody staring a group of Muppets. Detectives Meloni, Mariska, and Munch search for a missing letter “M.” As they investigate, they find many things that start with the letter “M” (such as a cow named Murray that makes Moo sounds, a mallard, and much more).

A salute to all Muppets, but mostly Sesame Street.

It’s especially funny/ironic because of course SVU often focuses on crimes against children, so really it’s the Law and Order variant I’d be least likely to let my kid watch.
