Look, I know it's been forever and this is a totes sad thing to post after a long hiatus, BUT:
Sesame Street explains death. It's really touching because the actor the played Mr. Hooper actually did die, so the cast gets really emotional. As I get older, I realize how much I watched Sesame Street as a kid and what a true innovation it was. There's a new book out about the development of Sesame Street called Street Gang and the author is making the NPR rounds, so that's what brought this to mind.
