I think this is an excellent idea.  I just wonder if this message is getting to the children who need it the most.

I think some of those critics forget how Sesame Street first started, what is was about and who it was aimed at. It has a city setting for a reason. It has always addressed tough issues. All the Sesame Street world wide do this. Our SS dealt with a new baby and how the youngest muppet was no longer the baby and got less attention and what happens when somebody dies. In South Africa they have one with HIV. In the US as a child I remember they talked about death and adoption.

Snuffleupagus was at first only visible to Big Bird to show kids it was ok to have an invisible friend. The adults couldn't see him. But they changed that once they thought how some kids might be afraid to tell adults about molestation or other things because they might not be believed like Big Bird and Snuffleupagus. 

Fake internet outrage. Those kids will be watching Sesame Street next week like every other kid but more likely playing Angry Birds with their telephone.

Considering the age-group that SS is intended for it is okay to not explore some issues.   Prison, for many families is considered too mature of an issue for young children.   I guess, some may say my daughter lives in a bubble because no one in our immediate or extended circle has been in prison.  

If we are going to have muppets tackle all social ills-will we next have rape muppet, alcoholic parent muppet, glue sniffing muppet, bulimic/anorexic muppet...?    Some things are meant to be discussed on a smaller more personal scale and it's not the job of the media or the government to discuss them.

That said, my daughter does not watch television-only prescreeened DVDs or recordings.

I'm not mad. Just because it doesn't fit my life doesn't mean the others who are living that life cannot be represented. Representation for all, I support it!
