All it takes is one whistleblower to fireside off a sequence response. Take this current incidence on Sesame Street as proof. A dad or mum of a kid watching the nationally syndicated present thought she heard “Grover” concern the F-Bomb on a current episode, and it did not take lengthy for her grievance to succeed in the Twitterverse. Her allegation is that Grover shouted, “Yes, sure, that is a f*cking wonderful thought,” and to be fairly sincere, it certain as hell feels like Grover dropped the F-Bomb, when the working transcript truly calls for “Move the digital camera, sure, sure, that feels like a wonderful thought,” as a deliverable.
Even although Sesame Street’s showrunners have the incipient script to fall again on, when you program your self to right here the unintentional F-Bomb, it is laborious to take away the fixed F-loop out of your headspace. And even when you might, is not there a small a part of us-you, all, that wishes to play cuss-word revisionist with all of the characters from our childhood. If Grover had been to change into the degenerate model of himself, would he lose his Super Grover privileges within the course of?
Is there anyone within the Sesame Street universe with a nasty sufficient rap sheet to compete with Grover’s listing of transgression, aside from perhaps the Cookie Monster’s historical past of theft, and Oscar’s street-level curmudgeonry? Likely not I am afraid, this could be Sesame Street’s all-time low, and we’re all the higher for it.
