I know there are threads like this, but we need another. The number of productions has been cut drastically for a few years now, they have no new music anymore, the human cast is almost non-existant, a lot of things are re-used, the educational value has declined greatly, and they've actually gone backwards in some case (went from counting to 40 back to 20). Why is Sesame Workshop letting Sesame Street die like this? It can't just be Elmo's fault. Is it a lack of money? A lack of wanting to do anything good? Are there simply no creative people out there? I know I'm just being nostalgic when I say this, but Sesame Street use to be a show that everyone could watch. Now it seems the show talks downto it's audience. Why is it allowed to die like this? A season of new shows only lasts about a month before endless replays start. Each show canbe re-run about 12 times! It's madness. Eventually there will be one new show a year and it will be an hour long Elmo's world. Why are they letting it fizzle out? This show needs to get back to teaching more things in greater depth and NOT do it via Elmo's world. Parent's on these boards, I implore you! Write letters. Get your friends to write letters. Demandthat the show be revamped. Demand more shows per season. Frankly I don't see how any parent can sit with their child on a daily basis and watch Sesame Street without being bored out of their skull.
