In the past, the children's television show "Sesame Street" has taken on popular television series, like "True Blood" and "Law and Order: Special Victims Unit," with parodies that teach lessons and include muppet versons of the show's stars. The latest target of a "Sesame Street" parody is "Glee."

The short, called "G," features Muppet versions of Finn (Cory Monteith), Rachel (Lea Michele), Kurt (Chris Colfer), Artie (Kevin McHale), Mercedes (Amber Riley), Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) and Mr. Schuester (Matthew Morrison) -- who goes by Mr. Guester in the short.

Sue's puppet even makes a quip about Mr. Gue's hair saying, "You know all about gel Guester, you use enough of it." The Mr. Guester puppet has a cleft chin and curly hair, much like "Glee" actor Morrison.

At the beginning of the clip, the Rachel puppet can be heard saying, "I like you Finn. I'm looking at you longingly." Towards the end of the clip, the group sings a parody of "Don't Stop Believin'."

The parody is part of the children's television series' 42nd season premiere on September 26, which also includes a parody of "Deadliest Catch" called "The Heaviest Catch." Meanwhile, "Glee" had their third season premiere on Tuesday.

In August, Sesame Workshop, the production company behind "Sesame Street," took to the show's official Facebook page to deny that Bert and Ernie were gay. The statement was a response to an online petition asking that the show marry the two because New York recently passed same-sex marriage legislation.

"Bert and Ernie are best friends. They were created to teach preschoolers that people can be good friends with those who are very different from themselves," the company said on their official Facebook page. "Even though they are identified as male characters and possess many human traits and characteristics (as most "Sesame Street" Muppets do), they remain puppets, and do not have a sexual orientation."
