Oh some of what you've mentioned is making me cringe and I haven't even seen most of it! I still like the idea of the current Sesame Street to have a "classic corner" segment of retro material - if only to celebrate their 40th season next year. I still have hopes for Sid the Science Kid. It looks interesting. Heck, why don't they dub the Hoobs or Mopatop for use on PBS? I hate dubbing, but it's gotta be better than the stuff PBS is pawning off on kids that you mentioned.
