Sesame Street, a show created for public access television to help kids from low-income families learn to read and write, is being put being a paywall which will prevent the kids who most need it from accessing it.
The past 50 seasons are also included in that so they can't be streamed anywhere else.

Fuck capitalism.

Pirate Sesame Street.


@FuchsiaShock Between this and the characters shilling in ads for products that preschoolers aren't even inclined towards caring about like insurance and SUVs I can practically feel an earthquake from Jim Henson rolling in his grave.

@Retrodude @FuchsiaShock

Jim sold his creations to Disney before his passing, though. So maybe he wouldn't care that much. :/
