Stephen Colbert Comes Down Hard on HBO’s Gentrification of Sesame Street

Watch the baby’s hands! There are unattended hot takes everywhere! Last night, Stephen Colbert riffed on Sesame Street’s controversial move to HBO. While many people have wondered how the show will or will not change with the move, let us remember that Sesame Street has always been a block full of full-frontally nude hippies that would want everyone to be friends, have free Wi-Fi, and learn how to recycle. Ain’t nothing new about that. For all we know, Bert and Ernie were on the waiting list to adopt Ethiopian twins this whole time! Would anyone be surprised? The vetting process for adoption can be very lengthy, especially when you are two fabric dolls with plastic eyes operated by some guy’s arm.
