I've said it before... other than joke fuel, any rumor about Sesame Street just causes trouble. I agree... it's open to interpretation so long as it's just all in good fun. For a second, let's pretend that no one ever jumped to this assumption.The concern some fans have about what could or could not be happening in the off-screen private lives of a couple of puppets never ceases to amaze me. I think the fear speaks for itself.
Veggie Monster? Oscar living in a recycle bin? I once heard a rumor that Oscar was going to be taken out of SS entirely. All bunk. I could randomly say something like Big Bird is supposedly based on John Lennon or The Count has a pet werewolf that was seen in one episode that had to be removed. People will believe it, they'll spread and only WE will know it's false.
