I was watching my favorite video on the internet right now when I came across this video about an episode of Sesame Street called “D” is for Divorce:
As described by the Daily Mail:
Sesame Street has aired an episode which deals with the sensitive issue of divorce for the first time.
A scene on the issue had been originally written for the show in 1992 – but was a disaster when tested before an audience of pre-schoolers who misunderstood and became upset.
The idea was shelved until this year – when writers came up with a slot featuring a fairy called Abby Cadabby whose parents have been divorced for a while. The 13-minute segment will be aired online today.
