Clearly the writers of Sesame Street enjoy a good parody; they also seem to have waaaaaay too much fun on the job. Observe their new Avengers parody, The Aveggies- Age of Bon Bon, which is packed with inside jokes galore, as well as references to the first Avengers film.
In a scene echoing the “Battle of New York” in the first installment, Iron Man—er, ‘Onion Man’—is leading a flying chocolate-chip cookie through the streets of the city. The cookie is zapping everyone’s healthy food as the bad guy (Bon Bon) declares, “Prepare to be dessert-ed!”
Hulk, a.k.a. Dr. Banner (here Dr. Brownie, played by the Cookie Monster) is supposed to “turn green, get big and eat giant chocolate ship.” Which sounded like a good plan. Except that he had a hard time focusing.
