Warning: Sesame Street Will Make You Weep.

Well this week the Glee kid died.  Corey Monteith died.  That will happen with heroin I suppose.  Sometimes you just gotta wonder why, just selfish.  I’m sure there are a shit load of people devastated by his actions.  Soooo, anyway, I was stumbling the net the day after he died (I think) and found a blog post about the way shows cope with a main character dying.  Some shows had written the death into the show and I actually read the whole post.  It was quite interesting to see the other characters in the shows display real emotion.  I watched all of the clips, enjoyed them too, until I got to one about half way through.  At that point I regretted reading this bloody post.  It was terrible, just awful stuff.  It looked innocent enough, you know a giant yellow bird holding some pictures he had drawn, oh and by the way…he is a very good cartoonist.  So I clicked and started watching and it was all down hill from there, I can tell you.  I was watching ( the infamous) … wait for it…

THE MR HOOPER EPISODE OF SESAME STREET, THE ONE WHERE THE BIG PEOPLE HAD TO EXPLAIN DEATH TO BIG BIRD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WAHA. 😦

Just really well done, it’s a great way to explain death.  So if you have a box of tissues handy, and you remember Mr Hooper (70’s kids) give it a go.

Gotta love big birds reaction, I think he was a little angry that Mr Hooper wasn’t coming back ever… Here it is.
