Censorship? Not what you'd expect on a show like Sesame Street. But think again. Throughout the years I've watched Sesame Street (since 1986), I've noticed a couple of edits in re-airings of certain segments. THE CARROT - this is a cartoon segment where an old lady says all kinds of things about carrots. It dates back to the mid-70s, if I'm not mistaken. There's a part where the old lady says: "Some important don'ts: don't eat a carrot with mittens, don't put a carrot in your bellybutton, and don't write on walls with your carrot." On the mention of each don't, we see someone disobeying her, then receiving a mallet on the head (rather gruesome, no?). from memory, I notice that in subsequent airings of this segment (from 1995 onward), the mallets are removed. I have a copy of the original version. WANDA THE WORD FAIRY INTRODUCES THE TELEPHONE - Wanda stands in front of a telephone booth and, with a wave of her wand, a giant wood sign with the word TELEPHONE on it appears in front of the booths, making it impossible for anyone to make a call. When one of the phones starts ringing, Wanda struggles to remove the sign. In the original verison, after she introduces the word STUCK, Wanda exclaims DARN IT! (two words!), then she eventually becomes exhausted, gives up, and calls out, "Does anyone have a hammer? ..." Re-airings of this segment end abruptly after the word STUCK. If anyone else knows of other edits on Sesame Street that I failed to point out, post all replies to this message.
