The human cast has varied over the years, but for many years the core remained relatively stable: black married couple Susan and Gordon (and later their adopted son Miles), who work as a nurse and a junior-high science teacher, respectively; Puerto Rican college student Maria; black student and store clerk David (until 1989); white freelance musician Bob; his deaf librarian girlfriend Linda (until 2003); Hispanic "Fix-It Shop" owner Luis, who later married Maria, and they have a daughter, Gabriella. These characters have been gradually phased out of the show, and currently the main humans on the show, as of 2016, are Nina, Alan and Chris.

** Parental action groups largely hadn't been invented or weren't equipped to handle this kind of kiddie-TV innovation in the early years, leading to such dazzling high points as the aforementioned Lefty, slapstick practical joker Harvey Kneeslapper, and Roosevelt Franklin, the first (and still the only) Muppet [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0mw5vfPl1U&feature=related hip-hop poet]]. Can you imagine a modern preschool show ending up with classic moments like this?
-->'''Cop:''' "My name's Stan. I'm the Man. You just got ten years in the can for stealing the Golden An..."\\
'''Lefty:''' "Awwww...I shoulda ran!"
** An episode featuring Gaby trying on an old fairy costume has Elmo, Telly and Baby Bear looking on admiringly, with Baby Bear saying to the other two, "Hey fellas, check out those great lookin' wings!"



** One episode had Elmo and several children seeing who could cry the loudest, a game they called Film/TheCryingGame.



** In episode #4425, Bert is reading [[Literature/FiftyShadesofGrey ''Fifty Shades of Oatmeal'']]
-->'''Bert:''' 1. Beige, 2. Tan. Wow, this is steamy stuff! 3. Ecru.
** In the ''Series/{{Glee}}'' parody, they were actually able to get away with including the gay guy.



** A more literal example with Big Bird constantly getting Mr. Hooper's name wrong, calling him "Mr. Pooper" or "Mr. Scooper" - but, unfortunately, never both at the same time.

* [[WhereTheHellIsSpringfield Where The Heck Is Sesame Street?]]: New York City, of course, but the show has always been vague on the specific location. [[http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/How_to_get_to_Sesame_Street Most of the hints dropped on the show]] place it in Manhattan, with the Upper East Side and Midtown being the most likely neighborhoods.

* FunForSome: Bert invokes this trope constantly. All of his interests qualify to some extent as nerdy or lame: feeding pigeons (actually a pretty routine thing to do in New York City, since they're everywhere), collecting bottle caps and paper clips, and reading a book of boring stories entitled...''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Boring Stories]]''. ("The prince drank a glass of water...")
