The Golden Girls' series finale was in 1992, but as a pop culture phenomenon, they've never left. There have been coloring books and cafés and even theme song gospel remixes. Now there's a puppet show parody, opening in New York next week. Jump below to see how they look, now...

Opening off-Broadway on October 3, That Golden Girls Show parodies classic moments from the '80s sitcom, with plenty of sex, shoulder pads, and sass.

Writer-director Jonathan Rockefeller talked to The Huffington Post about the enduring nature of the show and how it was ahead of its time:

They were talking about race, religion, sex, gender – all these things – and I think that's what made them interesting. They were talking about gay marriage back in 1985, and now we've just got that in the past couple of years... [It showed that] women of a certain age could be sexy and could have wonderful lives, and did it in a humorous, fun and loving way.

Now, important question: does the DR2 Theatre serve cheesecake?
