Those of us who grew up watching Robin Williams movies no doubt took away a life lesson or two. Aside from perhaps Dead Poets Society, Williams was never more in teaching mode than he was during his guest appearances on Sesame Street. At this moment, it feels especially heartening to look back on what the actor helped us learn.

One is an Academy Award-winning actress and the other is a blue puppet, but Jennifer Lawrence and Cookie Monster have at least one thing in common – they both star in adaptations of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire this week!
While Lawrence will hit theaters strong-willed heroine Katniss Everdeen in big screen adaptation of the hit book on Friday, Sesame Street will air a segment parodying the popular book starring Cookie Monster as Cookieniss Evereat on Thursday.
In the PBS children's program version, Cookiniss must complete patterns and learn healthy eating habits to win "The Hungry Games" along side her companions Tick-Tock Lady, Finnicky, and Pita (a bread version of Josh Hutcherson's Peeta Mellark).

Carrie's cry-face just got a whole lot cuter because Homeland's been given the Sesame Street treatment.
From the moody jazz-infused opening sequence to Special Sheep Agents, the Showtime drama is parodied in "Homelamb," a segment for the iconic children's show.
Nicholas Ba-a-a-a-rody – who sports Damian Lewis's trademark red locks – comes under fire for being a wolf in sheep's clothing. While Saul (who is played by Mandy Patinkin on the series) dons trademark glasses, Carrie breathlessly delivers why she thinks Ba-a-a-a-rody's is deceiving the Special Sheep Agents in a performance that rivals Claire Danes's portrayal on the actual Emmy award-winning series.
