The folks at "Sesame Street" have cast their parody sights on a new target -- "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire."

In their version, entitled "The Hungry Games: Catching Fur," Cookie Monster takes the starring role as "Cookieness Evereat" in a competition that, predictably, involves eating.

Just a few weeks ago, "Sesame Street" scored a viral sensation with "Homelamb," their parody of "Homeland," where all the characters (except one) were sheep.
