Elmo's World of Pain

As those of you who are parents are well aware, most shows aimed at a pre-school audience are painful for adults to watch, especially those like Max and Ruby - Where are their parents? - and Little Bear - cloying and over-the-top saccharine garbage. However, tried and true Sesame Street still comes up aces in my book.

Sure, it's a little bit weird to see Ernie and Bert now in claymation for a good chunk each episode, and the overexposure of Elmo is a little bit much, but all in all, it's still something that adults can find some humor in. This is all the more true when a special guest star from the grown-up world comes to call on the cast, as was the case here in this absolutely hilarious clip.
