‘Sesame Street’ parodies ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ – watch

'Aveggies: Age Of Bon Bon' follows a baddie 'determined to destroy the world's healthy vegetables'

Sesame Street has parodied Avengers: Age Of Ultron before Joss Whedon’s superhero movie has even opened in US cinemas.

Avengers: Age Of Ultron was released in the UK last Thursday (April 23), but will not arrive in US cinemas until this Friday (May 1). Sesame Street‘s tongue-in-cheek take on the blockbuster, titled The Aveggies: Age Of Bon Bon, premiered earlier today (April 27).

Sesame Street‘s spoof follows a super-villain on a mission “to destroy all the healthy vegetables in the world” before he meets his match in “The Aveggies”, a team of superheroes featuring characters called Dr. Brownie, Onion Man, Captain Americauliflower, Black Bean Widow, Mighty Corn, and Zuchin-eye. Watch the five-minute parody below.

Avengers: Age Of Ultron topped the UK box office this weekend with takings of £18 million – the highest opening weekend of 2015 so far, eighth highest of all time and highest since Bond film Skyfall took £20.1m in 2012. Read NME’s review of Avengers: Age Of Ultron here.
