Sesame Street, a show created for public access television to help kids from low-income families learn to read and write, is being put being a paywall which will prevent the kids who most need it from accessing it.
The past 50 seasons are also included in that so they can't be streamed anywhere else.

Fuck capitalism.

Pirate Sesame Street.

@FuchsiaShock A lot of episodes appear to still be on YouTube. That's how my kids watch them.

I like finding the bits from my own 1970s childhood. It seems like back then they were more freewheeling, and there was more stuff slipped in to entertain grownups who might be watching with kids. Also Elmo sucked.

@xenophora @FuchsiaShock I know, and now he's a franchise with his own spin-off segment. My kids don't miss a second of Elmo's World.

@nebula @FuchsiaShock

Compared to Grover, Herry, et al he's just never seemed to have any personality at all.
