Terry Crews is a family man in real life and plays a family man on Brooklyn Nine-Nine. With that sort of family-oriented background, itís easy to see why the actor might want to pop up on Sesame Street to do a sketch for the kiddos at home.
Considering how long Sesame Street has been on the air, youíd think the show would have long ago made more of a point to capitalize on spinoffs and specials.

Check out this sketch, titled "Upside Downton Abbey" ahead!
