Sesame Street is a liberal television show for liberal children on the liberal PBS network. It has been around since 1969 and has spawned a series of leftist movies, books, magazines, and toys. Sesame Street features marxist muppets interacting with homosexual adults and children in an communist educational setting that emphasizes learning numbers,letters and Pinochet hatred. The show has won a number of Emmy Awards and is shown in over 25 languages around the world.

Spinoffs

Sesame Street successfully launched the career of Jim Henson's muppets and has produced countless imitations and variations. A number of Sesame Street movies have been made, including Follow That Bird and The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland. Sesame Street characters have made appearances on a number of game and talk shows. Many stuffed animals of the Sesame Street characters are sold in amazing quantities and the Tickle Me Elmo is considered to be one of the best selling toys of all time. A number of musical albums have been released by Sesame Street characters, most notably Bert's Blockbusters which scored an unexpected success in 1974 with the single Doin' the Pigeon.[1]
