the new Sesame Street

Joanna pointed this article out to me yesterday. While old school Sesame Street is being released on DVD it comes with a disclaimer. From the NY Times article,

According to an earnest warning on Volumes 1 and 2, “Sesame Street: Old School” is adults-only: “These early ‘Sesame Street’ episodes are intended for grown-ups, and may not suit the needs of today’s preschool child.”

Just for the record, my favorite character was oscar the grouch and i loved the alistar cookie bit.


  1. Wow, talk about a flashback. Agree, Alistair Cookie was sweeet! And as for this nonsense, “We might not be able to create a character like Oscar now”. Maybe its the wisdom that comes with age, but I see Oscar as representing the reality of poverty, exploitation, and socio-economic injustice that is even worse today than 20 years ago. Kids oughta’ learn that too!
