* The song "The Ballad of the Sad Cafe" (released on the CD ''Elmo's Lowdown Hoedown'') is an in-universe example, as it describes [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a cafe where cowboys and cowgirls let out their sadness]]. After the songs ends, They cheer up and....
-->'''Cowboy:''' Hey, You Know that I had good cry. I feel better!
-->'''Cowgirl:''' Me too! I am not sad anymore! I feel happy!
-->'''A Horse:''' Hey, What do you all want to do?
-->'''A Cow:''' Let's to the ''Happy Cow-Lounge''!
-->'''Cowgirl:''' Oh, I love that place!
-->'''Cowboy:''' Yea-Haw! Let's go there! (As they leave the Sad Cafe).

* Big Bird getting bullied about being too big, too yellow, and sounding too funny to be in the "Good" Birds Club. The saddest part is that each reprise of his originally happy song is sadder.

to:

* When Elmo is pretending to be sad in a game he calls the "Crying Game". This is actually funny, but it turns sad when Elmo actually does become sad.
* The whole episode "Elmo Feels Sad" is this, especially when he doesn't respond to tickling. [[spoiler: Even worse is the reason he's sad is because his fish (not Dorothy, another one called Bubbles) died.]]
* When Curly Bear is born, Baby Bear vents his sorrows over the changes in his life to Telly. As you can imagine with Baby Bear being a bit of a LargeHam when he's sad, this was pretty tearjerking.
* "Sesame Street Home Video Visits the Hospital" has Big Bird get sick. His I-wish-I-wasn't-sick moments can be very tearjerking.
* The one where Gabby gets sick on her birthday. Enough said.
---> '''Nearly everybody''': "It's okay to be sad if you're sick on your birthday."

** The thing is, though, is it's a long time between initial drafting and full episode rollout. By the time they come up with something and are able to put it into action, the show - and PBS - could be in an entirely different place.

* The small cartoon with AnAesop about telling the truth. It begins with a small girl named Cookie with blue skin and crazy red hair and her yellow cat Lucy playing baseball. On the third strike, the window breaks and Cookie mopes that it's the "end of her baseball career". This is tear-jerking enough, but then she has an ImagineSpot about what would happen if she lied that Lucy broke the window: "They" (probably her parents and possibly other relations like siblings) would lock Lucy out Lucy and would have to live in the doghouse with Bruno the dog, but wouldn't like it as he doesn't like to share and would bark at her, so she would run away never to be seen by Cookie again. This leads Cookie to tell the truth to her mother in a very emotional way.
