I thought the Sesame Street: Old School DVDs that are currently out was worth a post here. The below disclaimer is heard at the beginning of the dvd: "Welcome to Sesame Street Nostalgia. I am Bob, your host, and I want you to know that these early Sesame Street episodes are intended for grown-ups and may not meet the needs of today's pre-school child." The main concerns, which will be interesting to chat here about, are the lessons are different -- things that were acceptable in the early 70s are not anymore. Cookie Monster smoking a pipe (for Monsterpiece Theater), Big Bird and other characters look different, some of the human actors have changed, according to TVSquad.com: A spokesman for Sesame Workshop says that the reason for the disclaimer is that many of the things the kids do in the old show, like playing in a dump, wouldn't fly with today's oh-so-careful world. And she also said that kids might be confused by all of the changes that have happened in the show in the past 30-40 years, such as characters looking different. What do you think?
