These aren't Steve Buscemi's kind of flappers.

Fans and detractors alike of HBO's "Boardwalk Empire" will find something to enjoy in Sesame Street's parody, "Birdwalk Empire." In this version, Nucky Ducky Thompson and Mallard Capone quarrel with their enemy "Clucky" Luciano over the best style of "bird walk." Special kudos to the Muppeteer performing a dead-on Michael Shannon impression as Agent Van Cuckoo (who we all know is a favorite with the kids).
