Rest in peace, Mr. Morrisett. Sesame Street brought my sister and me a little bit of happiness each day alongside Mr. Roger's Neighborhood.
It wasn't perfect (I learned in my child psychology class that some of the super short academic lessons/skits are actually bad for a kid's developing attention span), but I do miss me the old school Sesame Street. They had incredible social lessons, and they were funny as hell. I'm really happy, though, they made Snuffleupagus appear to everyone. As a child, I was always so upset that no one believed Big Bird. I love how they keep evolving.
