Sesame Street, a long-running children's educational program on PBS featuring Muppets from The Jim Henson Company, is a quaint and charming reminder of the days when TV shows for kids weren't designed to make them want to buy things or drive their parents to destroy the television set.
Sesame Street sadly ended when the alphabet and the numbers from 3 to 248 (not including 46, 99, 173, and L, who were on holiday together in Barbados at the time) grew tired of always having to underwrite the episodes. After the fifth rejection of an increase in their contract so they might be paid a healthy fraction of the salaries the Muppets and humans received, they decided to rise up and destroy the actual street used for filming. They were, however, very careful not to harm any of their fellow thespians or Big Bird's actual nest, though it must be admitted that D, Y and 104 expressed a personal vendetta against Oscar the Grouch by rolling his trash can (with Oscar inside) down the length of Sesame Street with big sticks. Oscar escaped with only minor cuts and bruises. The street itself was ruined beyond recognition, and sadly, no one can now answer that clarion call of youth, "Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sesame Street?"
