This is a hilarious and kinda sad article about the early days of Sesame Street which have just been released on DVD...with an "Adults Only" label. No kidding.
Not the Same Street
"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing. ~ Muhammad Ali

It's not that sad when you think about it. Children today are different than children of yesterday. Most of you wouldn't want your kids watching a cuddly monster smoking a cigar on television and telling your kids how wonderful it is to live in a trash can.

Then it was fine, today not so much. It's called the march of time.

Sesame Street is the entire reason I am who I am today.

... All things considered, I'm not sure if that's more of an endorsement or a denouncement.

Sesame Street taught me the most important lesson in life:

Don't eat the pictures!
