UnNews:Sesame Street finally exploits the fact that it's on HBO
Monday, December 31, 2018
On a recent episode, after light-blue Muppet Rosita suggests that "instead of holding the camera," she should move it around, Grover dropped an epic F-bomb. "That's a fucking excellent idea!"
This is the first Sesame Street episode to receive a TV-MA mature audience rating. All previous episodes were rated TV-Y, approved for young audiences.
This instance of profanity is the first of several changes that Sesame Workshop, formerly Children's Television Workshop, and HBO are making to the long-running puppet show. Gordon will become a drug kingpin and after Luis betrays him, their relationship may turn deadly. Among Gordon's customers will be Grover, Big Bird, Oscar the Grouch (now a conspiracy theory-spewing Trump supporter who watches nothing on TV except Fox News), and a deathly frail Cookie Monster, whose addiction nearly kills him. Judging by a pale Bob, The Count won't be the only vampire on Sesame Street. And you can fully expect Bert and Ernie to finally come out.
Mr. Snuffleupagus will be arrested for lying to the FBI.
It is currently unknown what changes await Elmo, Telly, Prairie Dawn, Julia, Cecile, or the Two-Headed Monster, but Commander Chiphead might change his name to something more becoming of an HBO series.
