'Sesame St.' will stress healthy food and exercise
By Tim Clodfelter
WINSTON-SALEM JOURNAL

Even Cookie Monster is cutting back on the sweets.

When "Sesame Street" begins its 36th season this week, it will be tackling a new subject: healthy habits.

In response to the growing crisis of childhood obesity, the children's show will spend much of the coming season teaching kids how to get more exercise and enjoy healthier foods.

Cookie Monster will learn that, as one of the show's new nutrition-oriented songs puts it, "A cookie is a sometime food."

"We're realistic; we're not trying to get kids to stop eating cookies," said Lewis Bernstein, an executive producer of "Sesame Street."

"But (Cookie Monster) is broadening his eating habits, I'm glad to say."

Each season, the producers of "Sesame Street" get together with educators and advisers to discuss the needs of their show's target audience, which is mainly preschoolers. This year, they decided to focus on exercise, nutrition and health in general.

About half of the 26 episodes this season will focus largely on healthy choices, and most episodes will include that subject as at least a partial component of the show.

Episodes will stress the importance of nutrition, physical activity, size acceptance and other issues, including the question of how to get a reluctant child to try a new food.

The series will feature such songs as "Colorful Carrots," "The Mango Tango," "The Play Ball Song," "The Worm Workout Song" and more.

Exercise will be an important a part of the show's focus, with songs and activities that encourage kids to get up and move around. The manager of the New York Yankees, Joe Torre, will guest star in an episode where he helps Telly, a clumsy Muppet, learn how to catch a ball.

It's not the television that's making kids fat. It's the damn parents who'd rather buy their kids McDonald's than cook a good meal, and don't care if they sit on their ass watching T.V. and playing PS2 all day. Dumbasses.

They should make an example of the Cookie Monster, have him eat a bunch of cookies then have a quadruple bypass, that'll teach kids the dangers of sugar.

Bah.

I say teach kids the harsh reality. Show cookie monster as the fat lazy slob he is. Have all the other characters make fun of him for being fat, getting picked last in dodge ball and being the first one out. Then all the others characters laugh at him while he cries.

So, Cookie Monster has been a pillar of the Street for its entire existence, so OBVIOUSLY it's his fault that in the last 10-15 years kids have been getting fat.

Salad monster and Tofu Monster.

In all seriousness, this seriously pisses me off. We don't watch much TV in my house, but we generally DO watch 15-30 minutes of sesame street every day (I have a three year old daughter). She loves cookie monster.. Amazingly enough it hasn't turned her into a big gnarly drooling fat slob of a three year old. I haven't proven this scientifically yet, but I am thinking this might have something to do with me saying no when she asks for crap snacks. And even taking it a step further and offering fruit and things like that for snacks. Apparently I am in the minority

They are seriously screwing more **** up to cater to the lowest common denominator.. surprise surprise.
