"The show could no longer suit the needs of today’s preschool child," said the producer "So we had to change the content of the show to meet the needs to modern 4-year-olds' needs."
It was reported that the Sesame Street characters formed their own gang, put Mr. Hooper out of business and possibly murdered him as well during the Battle of Sesame Street.
The first episode this season, entitled "Trapped in the Closet", will take place in Seattle, Wahington where Bert and Ernie take part in a gay pride parade, revealing their homosexuality.
"We've been wanting to do that one for years," says Frank Oz, the longtime voice of Bert. "But PBS and the parents would have sued our asses a long time ago."
It has also been announced by the studio in charge of the production has also contacted "Fisher Price" to include profanity in the new "Kick My Ass Elmo" just in time for the Christmas holiday, and the popular toy will now contain phrases such as "go eat shit fuckers" and "Bert's a fucking queer and you know it!!"
