At Sesame Street, we aim to educate children around the world. We take that very seriously, and sometimes, it means we can’t just repurpose existing content.
Take the above. That’s Elmo, holding a camera and talking to Mr. Noodle. It’s from an episode created in 2005. But we couldn’t use it for Kinect Sesame Street TV … because many of today’s preschoolers don’t know how that type of camera worked.
2005 doesn’t seem like that long ago…

So there’s only one channel in this motel,
This morning while I was getting ready I was watching Sesame Street.
They were doing this bit where some clown was trying to wash his hands but kept washing his feet or his elbows and Elmo would go, “no mister noodle, your HANDS!” and all the tv kids would laugh.
Around the fourth or fifth time he couldn’t find his hands, I heard a grown man yell from somewhere else in the motel, “GODDAMMIT, MR. NOODLE.”
LITERALLY MY FAVORITE STORY ON ALL OF TUMBLR.

It’s been 22 years, but it feels like yesterday. We still miss you, Jim.
