Who killed Laura Palmer?
For most of us, this question was answered twenty-five years ago, when Twin Peaks came to an end. The show, a mystifying David Lynch creation, was a staple in the 90’s. With characters like Agent Dale Cooper, Donna Hayward, Bobby Briggs, and the show’s teen dream Laura Palmer; it was an instant hit. In true Lynch fashion, it was offbeat, but the cult following still exists to this day.
Keeping this in mind, one would be safe to assume a parody of the show wouldn’t come from a children’s television show. Yet, the producers at Sesame Street, took it upon themselves to make a G-rated spoof of the show. The premise is as follows: finding himself in the town of Twin Beaks, Agent Cookie becomes fixated on finding the origin of the name. He may not be in town to solve a murder, but he has some darn good pie at the local diner, which as any Twin Peaks fan knows, was vital for the visiting detective.
