You gotta see this.

"he really only wanted her to meet his wife and have milk and cookies. but, he could have done ANYTHING"

My god, this thing is hillarious. The first page is too funny.

Any thoughts?

I especially like the last paragraph:

People on “Sesame Street” had limited possibilities and fixed identities, and (the best part) you weren’t expected to change much. The harshness of existence was a given, and no one was proposing that numbers and letters would lead you “out” of your inner city to Elysian suburbs. Instead, “Sesame Street” suggested that learning might merely make our days more bearable, more interesting, funnier. It encouraged us, above all, to be nice to our neighbors and to cultivate the safer pleasures that take the edge off — taking baths, eating cookies, reading. Don’t tell the kids.

They were talking about it on NPR today, and mentioned some segments the Times didn't mention. There was a scene where a monster (I don't remember which one) put a bucket on his head and ran about the house. The reason it was cut was because they didn't want kids doing that and accidentally running off the top stair.

Now, I can see where they're coming from, but compared to the rest of TV today...

Another scene they mentioned was Bert in the bathtub. He asks Burt for a bar of soap. And heaven forbid one guy hand another a bar of soap.

All you older people out there...: You watched Sesame Street, and you turned out fine. I think this is ridiculous.

As a child of the 70s, I demand a full apology from Children's Television Workshop for completely screwing up my generation.

sigh

I'll have to pick this set up and watch them with my daughter, and show her what the show was like before Elmo took over.

Your kidding, right Carbs?

Sorry guys, i forgot that it was by the NY times, who are morons.
Here is a wrap up of it:
  • cookie monster has diabetes
  • apperently, farmers are filthly and unsanitary people who can't be trusted
  • the NY times are complete idiots

"Cookie Monster was on a fast track to diabetes. Oscar’s depression was untreated. Prozacky Elmo didn’t exist." ^_^

Sorry, I forgot my [/sarcasm] tag.

My wife says that particular element always seriously pissed her off.

There's no hope for the planet. Reading this arctical both depressed me, and made me laugh.

This is heart-wrenching, and shouldn't be viewed unless you're over 30.

After reading this article I've come to the conclusion that I must get these DVD's and learn what sesame street was like before I started watching in the 80's. My favourite part of the article is about the hallucinating big bird, and now that I think about it he does seem to be perma-fried. I also like the part about the show's purpose: "black children, mostly, who must be pressed into service as the face of America’s farms". Hurray for using propaganda on 4 year olds!

One of my friends told me that he was really bored so he watched a little Sesame Street. Appearantly, the Cookie Monster is now something like the Veggie Monster.

You guys do realize that this is supposed to be funny, right?

The masonry on the dingy brownstone at 123 Sesame Street, where the closeted Ernie and Bert shared a dismal basement apartment, was deteriorating. Cookie Monster was on a fast track to diabetes. Oscar’s depression was untreated. Prozacky Elmo didn’t exist.

That's funny. They're not serious, it's a humorous essay.

Alice came to the fork in the road.
"Which road do I take?" she asked.
"Where do you want to go?" responded the Cheshire cat.
"I don't know," Alice answered.
"Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."

Well, it was from the NY times, so you can't tell. Kinda like Bush trying to be serious. In a way, he makes fun of his self.

The NY Times descriptions are meant to be funny, but the underlying changes they refer to (Cookie Monster eating healthier, a "cleaner" street, the teeth-gratingly annoying Elmo) are not.

Correct, but they're not saying it's "evil", they're saying it's stupid. Sesame Street has gone to shit in order to mantain political correctness just like everything else.

I think the whole joke was that people SERIOUSLY fucking believe this.

Yeah, i thought it was serious, which is why i thought it was funny. I don't get the Times because i chased some kid of my lawn with a NF because he didn't take no for an awnser.

I edited this clip from Sesame srtreet (Bert and Ernie) and added the voices of robert Deniro and Joe Pesci from the film Casino which they played the parts of Nicky Santoro who was a gangster gangsta (Pesci) and Sam Rothstein who was a jew jewish (Deniro) directed by Martin Scorsese....


Above is a quote from description in the video.

For some reason I don't think it's real.
