Sesame Street 'Adult Only'?

Politically correct weenies have gone too far: the early-season DVD sets of Sesame Street are being labeled "Adult Only."

Yep. They're too 'mature' for today's kids, even though they were fine for 3-year-olds back then.

Live-action cows also charge the 1969 screen ? cows eating common grass, not grain improved with hormones. Cows are milked by plain old farmers, who use their unsanitary hands and fill one bucket at a time. Elsewhere, two brothers risk concussion while whaling on each other with allergenic feather pillows. Overweight layabouts, lacking touch-screen iPods and headphones, jockey for airtime with their deafening transistor radios. And one of those radios plays a late-?60s news report ? something about a ?senior American official? and ?two billion in credit over the next five years? ? that conjures a bleak economic climate, with war debt and stagflation in the offing.
I'll be getting the early ones just so I have something my eventual kids can watch without having to be exposed to Elmo.
