Katy Perry gets back at 'Sesame Street' on 'The Simpsons'

Looks like Katy Perry isn't quite over that “Sesame Street” snub she received in September, when the PBS staple caved to parental complaints and gave the singer’s cleavage-filled song and dance routine the boot.

On Sunday night’s episode of “The Simpsons,” the singer shot back at the children’s show in a live-action dream sequence called “A Fluppet Christmas Special.”

Surrounded by “Simpsons” characters, Perry played her part in the muppet mockery by pressing Mr. Burns to her latex-clad bosom and sharing in a ridiculous holiday song with the rest of the gang.

Viewers who watched all the way through the closing credits caught an extra scene featuring Perry and Springfield’s resident barkeep Moe. The quick exchange made Perry’s allegedly inappropriate Elmo clip seem undeniably tame for any age by comparison.
