It was a big surprise to everyone!
The iconic children’s television show Sesame Street is heading for HBO. Yes, HBO.
According to CNN:
Big Bird, Cookie Monster and Oscar the Grouch on the same network that features beheadings and full-frontal nudity almost every week on “Game of Thrones”? Really?
Hi kids! Today’s episode of “Sesame Street,” now brought to you by the letters, “WTF.”
Sesame Workshop announced Thursday that the beloved children’s show, which has been on PBS since its debut in 1969, will be distributed by HBO starting this fall. Episodes will become available to PBS stations and websites nine months after they’re on HBO. (Like CNN, HBO is owned by Time Warner.)
The adult entertainment started early on social media. CNN gathered some of the best responses from Twitter. Enjoy.
