Library of Congress Honors 50 Years (50! Ah-Ah-Aaaaahhhhh!) of 'Sesame Street'

The latter half of 1969 was a time of great turmoil in this country: civil rights issues were coming to a boil, Vietnam had proven to be a costly and foolhardy intervention, and the youth were in open revolt against the establishment culture of post-WWII America. Still, two things occurred during that period of time […]

Grover/F-Bomb Debacle Update: Frank Oz Wants You to Stop Projecting Onto Muppets

UPDATE: At a time when the nation finds itself hopelessly adrift in a moral quandry caused by the alleged foul-mouthness of Grover aka Grover Kent (see original reporting below), a voice filled with (appropriately enough) Yoda-like wisdom offered his ruling on the matter – which we can now classify "Case Closed" (for now).

And after all these years, we thought it was Oscar who had the trash mouth… Apparently nostalgic for the good old days of debating dress colors (don't act like you weren't a part of that, too), an already embattled nation found themselves at both a moral and existential crossroads (not sure if that's even possible, […]

In 1969, the famed felt pair of Bert and Ernie made their debut in the pilot episode of Sesame Street – and would remain a famous (and permanent) fixture on the long-running children's series. For nearly a half-century, these main Muppets used song, dance, and rubber duckies to make generations of kids into better human […]

Sesame Street's Bert and Ernie Share Their Backstory 'Fresh Prince of Bel Air' Style

Sesame Street's Bert and Ernie have a message for Will Smith and Jeffrey "DJ Jazzy Jeff" Townes: pop culture isn't big enough for two teams of '90s neon-clad, high-fivin' TV rappers, gentlemen. So pick up your banana and take their call: they're coming for your throne — and Rubber Duckie's ridin' shotgun! Possibly as a response […]


Oklahoma City Thunder Ok After Plane Hits…Something

Carmelo Anthony and his Oklahoma City Thunder brethren are off to a tough start this year. 2-3 as Russell Westbrook, Paul George, and Anthony get used to playing with each other.
