"Sesame Street" Made a Video to Teach Kids About Divorce . . . But It Won't Air on the Show
"Sesame Street" has produced a 13-minute video to help teach kids about divorce. But the segment won't air on the show . . . it'll be available online, as part of something called "Little Children, Big Challenges: Divorce".
--The package also includes a storybook called "Two Hug Day", and a guide for parents.
--By not airing it on the show . . . and making it part of their optional content geared toward specific kids . . . they can tackle the issue directly without confusing or worrying kids it doesn't apply to.
--The segment stars the fairy character Abby Cadabby, whose parents have been divorced for a while.
--And here's how it initially comes out: Abby and some friends draw pictures of their homes, and Abby draws TWO houses. She explains, quote, "This one is where I live with my mommy . . . and this one is where I live with my daddy."
--Which seems like a more comforting approach than having kids watch a character experience a divorce in the present. Since Abby is already living in the situation, it should feel more normal.
--"Sesame Street" actually tried to take on divorce before . . . back in 1992 . . . and it was a DISASTER.
--They planned an episode where Snuffy would announce that his dad was, quote, "moving out of our cave, [and moving to] some cave across town." And Snuffy was upset, angry and crying.

--"There are a lot of good comics out there, no doubt, but as far as the quality of the comics goes, I think what you have is a bunch of situational comics.
--"What we have now is black comics that work only black crowds, gay comics that do only gay crowds, and southern comics that only work down South, and so on with Asian, Latino, Indian, midgets, etc.
--"The previous generation's comics were better because they had to make everybody laugh. Richard Pryor could do 'The Ed Sullivan Show' and play the Apollo."
--As for who stands out, he says, quote, "[Jerry] Seinfeld can work any crowd. Ellen [DeGeneres] can work any crowd. [George] Lopez can work any crowd. And a few more, but the rest of them are just situational comics."
