Sesame Street has done is again.

Having already parodied Homeland (via Homelamb) and Sons of Anarchy (via Sons of Poetry), the children's program has now set its sights on The Hunger Games.

It tells the tale of Cookieness Evereat and her friends Finnicky, Tick Tock Lady, and Pita  as they plot their escape from poking monkeys and tickling winds.

Forget the positive Catching Fire reviews from critics, folks, and check out this first look at The Hungry Games: Catching Fur. And may the cookies be ever in your flavor...

We are fewer than two weeks away from the release of Catching Fire.

How are you preparing for this opening? By re-watching the original? By viewing the Catching Fire trailer 27 times per day? By entering into a competition with your friends in which only one person comes out alive?

We really don't recommend the latter.

But we do recommend the following: it's a video of cats recreating The Hunger Games by using cardboard. What else do you need to know?!?

Forget Katniss for a moment, people, and focus below on CAT-niss:

The final trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire debuted last night during Game 4 of the World Series.

And the new spot throws some seriously high heat at Katniss and company.

The preview gives fans a new look at the arena for 75th edition of The Hunger Games, which will feature howler monkeys, Japperjays and many other obstacles for our heroes to overcome.

We also see plenty of Katniss, of course, along with her flying arrows, Peeta, Prim and we hear a warning/question from President Snow: Would you like to be in a real war?

This Hunger Games sequel comes out on November 22.

For more sneak peeks at what's to come, press Play on this Catching Fire TV spot and this international Catching Fire trailer.

We know at least one person who won't be in line this November for Catching Fire.

In an interview with The Guardian to promote his new novel "Doctor Sleep," acclaimed author Stephen King made his feelings on a few other best-selling books very well known.

  • Catching Fire Character Poster Katniss

Referring to The Twilight Saga as "tweenager porn," King explains of the books in this beloved series:

"They’re really not about vampires and werewolves. They’re about how the love of a girl can turn a bad boy good.”

Despite release dates of November 2014 and November 2015, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay is already filling up its cast.

In the past few weeks, Natalie Dormer and Julianne Moore have both signed on for significant roles.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, meanwhile, hits theaters theaters on November 22. It's safe to say we're a little excited for it.

Forget all those exciting Hunger Games casting tidbits for a moment (Natalie Dormer as Cressida! Julianne Moore as Alma Snow!) and take a look at one of the funniest parodies we've seen in awhile.

Yes, it's time to watch a trailer for The Jewish Hunger Games: Kvetching Fire.

Posted over the weekend in honor of Yom Kippur, the hilariously detailed video should make Jews forget about the stomach-rumbling they experienced Saturday when fasting for 24 hours in honor of this atonement-based holiday.

Watch now and, don't worry Jewish readers, the video is rated Kosher. It does not include pork, shellfish or Mel Gibson.
