Video: 'Sesame Street' Releases 'Homeland' Parody

In the 'Homelamb', a puppet sheep as CIA agent Carrie Mathison exposes hero Brody as the Big Bad Wolf in sheep's clothing.

Following their spoof of such hit shows as "", "" and "", long-running children's TV series "" takes on Emmy Award-winning drama-thriller "" for its latest parody of popular TV programs and movies. The parodies serve as a child-friendly treatment of what are otherwise seriously-themed TV series dealing with such topics as sex, violence and drugs.

Wittingly entitled "Homelamb", the four-and-a-half-minute funny clip features a cast of puppet sheep as the CIA agents, amongst them one playing ' character Carrie Mathison. Caa-rrie tries to fight her obvious attraction to Nicholas Brody, or in this case Baa-rody, as she goes about exposing him as the Big Bad Wolf in sheep's clothing in front of the other agents who consider him a hero.

The parody is spot on, from the jazzy intro to the Carrie freak-outs. Caa-rrie is even second-guessing herself after she reveals Baa-rody, thinking he might indeed be a sheep in wolf's clothing, then running after him with a declaration of "I don't care, I love you!" The spoof is humorously written with lots of sheep and lamb puns, like "on the lamb," "two shakes of a lamb's tail," and "feeling sheepish."

And similar to an actual TV series, Sesame Street also came out with a poster for "Homelamb" with head shots of Caa-rrie, Baa-rody, and Saaul as a reference to Carrie Mathison's mentor Saul Berenson. The tagline was "something is not right."
