"P" is for prison, that's good enough for me...

This is a monster that would routinely eats books, furniture and bite off the ends of letters. I think he once ate an entire Christmas tree. I knew he was going to be trouble.

maybe it IS time to defund Sesame Street. Guess Oscar the Grouch is the only sane one in the group.

You must be old (like me), but, "everyone" on Sesame St. has been able to see Snuffy since I think around the mid to late 80s.

I think it is a crock that they made this change, now kids won't have the frustrations we all had with the adults all not believing Big Bird.

Since when did Elmo come out as gay? He's supposed to be a little kid.

The male puppeteer who performs as Elmo was recently accused of having a "relationship" with a 16 year old boy.

Yeah, and I'm calling bullshiat on the story beyond what he's admitted to. Sounds like the guy, who is mid-20's now, is just pissed off and trying to make a story out of nothing, or being a copycat of the BBC shiat.
Being Elmo is on Netflix if you haven't seen it.

I actually just now saw that story, so now I see what the headline was getting at. Um, I don't think it was any secret that Kevin Clash is gay, though.

I have found this thread to be informative and answered all of my questions to my satisfaction.

They're all a tough lot, that Sesame Street gang. Real old-school. Oscar the Grouch kills people for money, and the Count keeps human slaves, that he counts, in his basement. Not to mention the money that Bert continues to funnel to extreme right-wing causes, while an HIV-positive Ernie faces federal charges. And don't ever tell me that one of them didn't just murder Mr. Hooper.

amen to that. one must separate puppeteer from Elmo, the Muppet - Elmo who we have grown to know and love. the puppeteer and the Elmo are two separate entities, similar to, oh, Mitt Romney and President Obama. not one and the same, two, two, two different beings.

instead of trying to put a label on Elmo maybe you should try to get to know him. he's more of a gentleman than most men you'll ever meet. polite, refined, with an appreciation of the arts and education. he supports the underdog and quietly donates both time and money to several charities.

that's the Elmo i know. and if that makes him teh ghey well then slap my butt and call me Myrtle!

Pretty sure both Mr. Hooper and David were shot when Cookie Monster refused to give them cookies.

Possibly Gina as well -- anyone heard from her lately?

I think the whole thing is a shake down too but on the other hand - a man who has spent his entire life with puppets has not made the best judgement calls in the past.

I dunno, he's probably made a fair amount of money on the various Elmo products. If he hasn't, then CTW is screwing him over.

I'll put it this way. That one girl didn't always need a hearing aid. She overheard Cookie Monster making a deal and had to be dealt with.

I went to high school with Kevin Clash, the puppeteer. This is very unsettling for me. I have no idea what to think, and I don't have enough information.

I never saw the documentary. I wasn't aware that it was common knowledge that Kevin was gay. News to me.

I didn't know he was gay either. It wasn't in the documentary IIRC. He was married (to a woman) and they had a kid together in the documentary.

Not only is he a puppeteer, but he's a black puppeteer. C'mon, guy has issues. It's like being a magician, or an ice skater. Homosexual friendly and access to kids aplenty.

He is perfectly lovely, very smart, quite well off, generous, kind, funny and absolutely IS Elmo. He also has a great deal of influence around SS and is a joy to be around.
