The Muppets Take On Brenda Leigh Johnson

It seems we aren’t the only ones suffering during this split season hiatus of The Closer. The gang over at Sesame Street put together this lovely spoof, where bright pink Brenda Leigh puppet teaches everyone to close cases—suit cases, glass cases, pencil cases—because it’s important to take care of your things.  

I wonder if The Closer will retaliate with a Sesame Street parody? Perhaps something along the lines of Flynn and Provenza singing the rubber ducky song?

    Thanks so much. I cannot wait to play this for my grandkids. Of course I am laughing my head off and the kids will wonder why I think this is so funny. LOL

    @Terrie – they’ll love it. What’s not to love about Dodger blue Provenza?

    That is hilarious! Now, I have to go see if I’ve left my suitcase open, or my sunglass case. . .

    That’s just too cute. Kids never get the irony and that kind of makes it even funnier.

    Sketches like this are what kept me sane while my kids were small and obsessed with Sesame Street.

    @clare2e @kerry @bungluna – Did you catch Sageant Gabriel puppet push his jacket back and put his his hands in his pockets? The clip is very well done.

    How perfect…and what an honor for the Closer and it’s fans!!! Just shows how far an awesome show can reach, and what it’s fans will do to prove they love it!!! The sincerest form of flattery in my book!
