Listening to NPR this morning, I heard Michael Davis, the author of Street Gang: The Complete History of "Sesame Street," talking to Diane Rehm on her show. Rehm asked the author to read the script from the "Sesame Street" episode in which the grown-ups explain Mr. Hooper's death to Big Bird. (Will Lee, the actor who played Mr. Hooper the storekeeper, had passed away in real life.) The script is a moving piece of writing, and Davis read it well. He mentioned that the segment, which originally aired on Thanksgiving Day 1983, is on YouTube.
