Episode: Book of Corrine
Segment Summary: Big Bird gets the bird flu.
- This segment parodies TV's Sesame Street.
- There was a similar sketch on MADtv where Big Bird also got the bird flu that might have inspired this sketch.
Trivia / Info:
- Seth Green and another Robot Chicken cast member, Mila Kunis have guest-starred on Sesame Street.
- In addition, Donald Faison, an occasional Robot Chicken cast member was a cast member on Sesame Street.
Goofs / Nitpicks:
- Sesame Street is shown as having a "Word of the day" (Quarantine), though it traditionally only actually had a "Letter" and "Number of the day". HA year after this sketch was made however, Sesame Street episodes did start including a "Word of the Day", which would be introduced at the start of the show as the "Word on the Street." This practice was discontinued when the show was reduced to a half-hour and moved to HBO.
- Snuffleupagus is portrayed as an imaginary friend of Big Bird, when, in fact, he's actually a real character on the show and was only thought to be imaginary during his first few appearances.
