From the people who brought you Birdwalk Empire and Desperate Houseplants, Upside Downton Abbey is officially here. That’s the name of Sesame Street‘s latest sketch, which teaches kids the effects of gravity when one is … well, upside down.
The sketch features Muppet versions of the Dowager Countess (Maggie Smith) and butler Mr. Carson (Jim Carter), who both reside in Upside Downton Abbey. The Countess first asks for tea, then crumpets, and finally for a steak and kidney pie, all of which fall from her reach upon presentation. A clearly disgruntled but patient Mr. Carson keeps explaining to her that it’s because they’re upside down.
Upside Downton Abbey was released on the popular PBS kids show last week, to coincide with the third season of the show airing on PBS, as well as its DVD release last Tuesday.
