I hate it when they change an established character’a race for PC points.
@ZhaothePoonSIayer, lol batwoman...
@ZhaothePoonSIayer, But it isn't the same big bird.
@ZhaothePoonSIayer, Marketer here, and it probably has nothing to do with pc. Its been known for a long time to advertisers that audiences in each region react differently to certain things. In this case it makes sense to match the key figures to the culture if its a learning program right? Sesame street teaches each language, depending on region. They are different lessons so why not different teachers? And keep in mind the producers of each sesame street are probably of the region they are broadcasting to. Nothing wrong with loving your country and putting on a show accordingly. Plus now each sesame street has its own cool spin. I don’t see the pc here, just logical sense
@Miss Leading, I was just making a joke.
I think the fact that Sesame Street has been copied all around the world is great.
The blue one has a name: Pino! (No joke)
@Smurf309fs, that’s my last name
This is why we will never have world peace. No wonder we’re all so confused!
I read the title the way Borat would say it: “SeSAMsTRAAAT”
That's not orange though, is it?
But why tho?
@BigJohnson86, I think to appeal to different cultures. I noticed Mexican big bird looks like a parrot which is what children usually see there. I also know that in Muslim countries they have a goat muppet (I’m serious, its true)
