Seasame Streets getting into politics???
watch for yourself:
or cut to the chase:
In the episode in question, Oscar the Grouch is a reporter covering, in breathless cable-news fashion, the trials and tribulations of Horatio the Elephant, who’s trying to extricate himself from a bathtub. Oscar’s quest for ‘all grouchy, all disgustin’, all yucky’ news goes awry when there’s ‘breaking news’ – namely, Cookie Monster breaking a cookie.
Oscar explains to Cookie that he’s now got two treats instead of one; Cookie hugs and kisses Oscar with joy; and Oscar’s girlfriend, Grunchetta – that’s right: Oscar the Grouch has a girlfriend – is so sickened by the outpouring of cheer that she threatens to change the channel to ‘Pox News.’ ‘Now there’s a trashy news show,’ she says.
I grew up on seasame street…my daughter watches seasame street…im sure she didnt get it…but, just me knowing the thoughts are bein’ put there irks me…i mean, this is a kids educational show?? they should be educating them on the letter and number of the day, its not a political platform…
