Sesame Street IS Moving to HBO Will Innocence Be Lost?

Ernie: Remember that pledge you made, but never paid up cause we’re on “public television?” We’re now on HBO punk! We learned some new collection techniques!

HBO is the home of  “The Sopranos” and “Game of Thrones” – violence and mayhem with ruthless mobsters, sex, drugs and debauchery. And now “Sesame Street, the essence of innocence.” Will Innocence Be Lost?

“The non-profit producer of public television’s “Sesame Street” and HBO announced a unique and surprising partnership Thursday morning, in which the premium subscription network will air the next five seasons of the Emmy-winning, Muppet-populated educational series for children. New episodes of “Sesame Street” could start airing and streaming on HBO’s TV and Internet platforms as early as this fall.”

When I read that Sesame Street was moving to HBO, the Above Mental Health Humor cartoon “Bert and Ernie join the ‘family.’ The Soprano Family.”  just drew itself.

I remember growing up watching the pledge drives, wondering who is collecting all the money pledges.  Yes, today with all the tech it makes it much faster and easier–one swipe or type a few numbers and ping your done, but this is Sesame Street we are talking about… 🙂
