It was a great day on Wedneday when someone finally said it- Big Bird SUCKS.

In pre-civil war Beirut and 1970's Spain, the only shows I saw were the Flintstones, Bugs Bunny, Scooby-Doo, Mission Impossible, the Addams family, Columbo, an excellent Spanish nature program, bullfighting, soccer, horse-jumping, and flamenco When I first saw Sesame street in the US I couldn't believe such boring, low-quality drivel was being fed to kids here. (And the stuff they called football, a sport with unintelligible rules, involving padded gladiators carrying the ball in their arms most of the time, or being buried in a pack of thrashing bodies on the ground...really, most inelegant.)
