Sesame Street Sesame Street

Sesame Street's upcoming 42nd season promises a gaggle of celebrity guests who'll frolic with children and puppets — as well as some skits based on pop-culture references.

Does Sesame Street have a liberal bias?

Speaking of those, Glee (in a skit called "G"), Deadliest Catch ("The Heaviest Catch"), the Broadway musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark ("SpiderMonster the Musical") and cooking competitions ("Cast Iron Cooks") will be among the subjects of Sesame's gentle (and gently educational) skewering.
