Interesting Sesam Stasjon thing

    So I was looking at a Norwegian news site, standard clickbait stuff, whatever. I came across an article about illustrations from children's books that were considered okay in Norway but had to be censored in the US, and one of the pictures was this...

    I guess it's a picture of spring activities? O. Tidemand has made a willow flute, and making a willow flute is a vital part of anyone's childhood, no matter how young. I just think it's funny, because this picture doesn't make sense at all if the knife is gone. How do you expect to make a willow flute without a knife? :p Plus it's clearly being used as a tool, not a weapon, so I guess you could argue that the hammer should be removed, too. Hey, hammers are pretty dangerous :coy:
    What are your thoughts? Is Sesame Street's audience too young to even see a knife, regardless of context? Should an educational show not teach proper knife handling? And how do you make a willow flute without a knife?
