Sesame Street is Not Suitable for Todlers

This shocked me into laughter when I first heard the story.  The more I tell it the less people I run into who have heard it, so I am helping to rebroadcast this story from 2007.

Yes, in fact it turns out that the original seasons of Jim Henson’s Sesame Street would no longer pass muster for its intended audience.  Here is a link to the original New York Times article titled: Sweeping the Clouds Away.
