  • You forgot mom using you as a pawn, subbs.
  • Living with her mommy = Henson's London Creature Shop
    Living with her daddy = Henson's New York City Creature Shop
  • We're about to witness the strength of street knowledge?

    Then there was the crucial distinction of timing: Snuffy had experienced his divorce in the present; he was upset, angry, crying. His emotions were raw. But Abby would reveal her story as something that happened in the past - an important distinction, say researchers, to show kids that she's made it to the other side.

    Good way to go with it. I'm honestly surprised it took two decades for them to broach the subject again.
  • But you'll get twice the Christmas presents, so that's something cool!
  • In a year or so, you will get a younger, prettier Mommy with bigger boobs. She will be like the older sister you never had!

    Fixed for my own experience.

    /I hate that coont
  • Wow.

    Based on the headline and the existing comments, I confidently predict that the degree of projection that's going to come out in this thread will be enough to make Mitt Romney look entirely sane, rational, and well-adjusted.

    / parents divorced, it sucked, I got better
    // interesting article. Sesame Street really does its homework
  • A divorce is when your mommy and daddy don't love each other any more, and its all your fault.

    I think that, as long as you make sure the kid is aware of this, then you and your ex can move on with your lives knowing you gave it your best effort.
  • And yet when Sesame Street tested the segment on preschoolers, just weeks before it was scheduled to air, it was nothing short of a disaster. The children didn't know where Snuffy was going to live. They didn't think his parents loved him. Some worried their own parents might get a divorce. They cried.

    Seems like the kids picked up pretty quickly that mommy and daddy's happiness was clearly more important than their own. This is a lesson that should be taught early.
  • Well it wasn't all Daddy's fault, HR sent her up:

  • Lsherm: Some worried their own parents might get a divorce.


    "Some"... I wonder if this was "random", or, it was kids who should have had real concerns their parents were going to divorce anyway.
  • I thought snuffy was big bird's imaginary friend.

    Nah, they made him real because the grown-ups on Sesame Street not believing in Snuffy apparently were akin to grown-ups not believing their kids when they told Mommy and Daddy about being diddled by their teacher/priest/relative/whatnot.

    Interesting, didn't know that was the reason, makes sense. Still always semi-angry when I think about all the frustration I had watching and the adults would never believe Big Bird, and now today's kids get off scott free.

    But for now we'll just say mama was real real bad
    She was bein mean to dad and made him real real mad
    But I still feel sad that I put her on time-out
  • Meanwhile, Mr. Hooper is still dead.

    Odds are good he'll stay that way.
  • Next Up: Elmo does a segment on fisting.
  • Big Bird, what's a divorce? A divorce is when your daddy gets caught banging the secretary and has gets to go live in another city, and you have to live with your mommy who is going to be angry at you all the time and cry a lot
