How to make the mayhem and murder of Sons of Anarchy educational? Turn those hard-riding heavies into... poets! That's Sesame Street's take on the gritty FX series, which returns for its sixth season on September 10.

Instead of fighting and feuding, these Sesame Street bikers rhyme. All the time! It's not a crime! "It's just a hobby, Bobby," says Tig, to which Bobby responds, "No big, Tig."

Series creator Kurt Sutter tweeted how much this meant to him, since his 6-year-old loves Elmo.

Sesame Street has also made Law & Order: SVU and Mad Men safe for the kindergarten set. What did they do with True Blood? Made it True Mud, of course.
