Did Grover go too far making fun of Spiderman the Musical? “Sesame Street” is known for addressing difficult subjects, and introducing a wide range of characters from different cultures, backgrounds, and abilities.

how does the teacher promote racism even though a good 99% of the people were black just because they were the reason racism started doesn't mean they get to call every single thing they don't like on a TV show is racist.

Blacks determine what is or isn't racist? So noone else can be discriminated against? Ive me a break what is or is not racist is fairly obvious to most with common sense and different things will b seen as racist by different peoples.

My son love Elmo I don't know if I'm going let my son watch any of Sesame Street of those characters are shady

Regarding Roosevelt Franklin, I think they jumped the gun when whoever made those accusations had done so. You must bear in mind that many American Cities had Crime riddled neighbourhoods & even if you weren't a criminal, you HAD to BE TOUGH in order to defend yourself should you be a victim of crime. I reckon the School that R. F. taught in was in a rough neighbourhood & the town's atmosphere rubbed off on him. Wouldn't surprise me if he'd been a constant target of muggings & assaults. I do however think that the show's producers DID GO TOO FAR with the violent outbursts & temper the character displayed.

I have a question/theory. Where are Big Bird's parents & family members? Well, my theory is that Big Bird may be Mentally Handicapped in 1 way or another & that the Sesame Street citizens are sort of caretakers for him. I have a cousin who has autism & is in residential care. I came up with this theory since Sesame Street has been around since the 60's & Big Bird's way of thinking did not change with the passing of time. Although I did once see an episode where he talked about his Granny Bird & her love of travelling. He even showed photos of her at famous world landmarks. Yes, I do know about that old movie 'Follow that Bird', where Big Bird gets put in a Foster Home because he didn't live with any parents or family members. He gets miserable there & tries to run away back to Sesame Street where he WAS happy. You see, that question was on my mind since I realised he did not live with any relatives, no child ever does. If they did it would be suspicious.

"Those people understand he's just a puppet, right?" Do they think kids are fat because Cookie Monster eats cookies? Do kids really do all the things puppets do? Cookie used to eat everything. I saw him eat phones and tables. Maybe parents should take an active role in their kids' lives instead of forcing a puppet to teach them good eating habits.

Who let this dumb cunt fuck up Sesame Street. No, Bert and Ernie aren’t gay, they’re friends. Stop trying to push your fantasies on shows for five year olds. You fucking sjws ruin everything

Where are they now? The kids that witnessed the Divorce?
LaBelleDame DuManor (3 months ago)
If you are referring to the Snuffalupugus parent's divorce I don't know. I do have a suspicion as to why they did. I believe Snuffy, Alice & Mrs. Snuffalupugus were fleeing domestic violence, you can see it in Snuffy's character as he would be mentally scarred from witnessing what he would have seen, unlike his baby sister Alice who would have been too young to remember anything as she is a bubbly cheerful toddler. Regarding Abby Kadabby, I don't think the reason her parents divorced was the same as Snuffy's. It may have been due to money/job trouble or any other reason that did not involve abuse.

Roosevelt Franklin too purple, too strong.
FreedomforHaiti (3 months ago)
The creation and demise of the Roosevelt Franklin segments is discussed in the book Street Gang: The Complete History of Sesame Street by Michael Davis, starting on page 247. To address complaints from some parts of the Black community that the Muppets weren't relatable to them, Matt Robinson (who I believe was black) created the characters and wrote the installment (I think he performed Roosevelt, too). However, other black people, who tended to be more conservative, didn't like it. Show creator Joan Cooney saw merit in both sides of the argument but tried to stay out of it. However, the conservative element won, even though they were smaller in number.
