Sesame Street Presents “Birdwalk Empire”
by Perry Michael Simon on October 2, 2012
Wait, was Sesame Street like this when we were kids?
Here’s the beloved children’s show’s take on Boardwalk Empire, in which Lucky Ducky Thompson and Mallard Capone take on Clucky Luciano in a turf war, broken up by Agent Van Cuckoo before everyone heads to the “beakeasy.” I’m pretty sure kids won’t understand the references, but their parents will.
I’m surprised they didn’t have a bird called Richard Sparrow, wearing a mask on half of his face.
