This is one of my entries to the Sesame Street contest over at Threadless ([link]
I really don't think it stands much of a chance of winning but, when considering ideas for this challenge, I searched through my memory banks for some defining moments in the show. Nothing on Sesame Street still resonates with me as much as when, as a youngster in 1983, I learned that Mr. Hooper (and actor Will Lee) passed away. The child in me still gets very upset as I remember it but, viewing the scene as an adult, I am shocked at how expertly the Sesame writers handled that moment. A truly amazing moment in children's television.
