First there was Birdwalk Empire, and now there's Upside Downton Abbey. Sesame Street parodied the popular British import last week, as part of a lesson about the effects of gravity.

The sketch featured puppet versions of the Dowager Countess (Maggie Smith) and her butler, Mr. Carson (Jim Carter), struggling to enjoy British staples like tea, crumpets and steak-and-kidney pie because their dining room had been turned upside down.

Why are Americans bloody obsessed with Downton Abbey ?

Check out the skit below:
