** Prior to that, the 2007 season was the final one to include any segments with Jim Henson. The last one to air? The Aaron Neville duet of "I Don't Want to Live On the Moon." Tear-jerking whether you like this version (it's a sweet song and a bittersweet way to send off Henson's clips, whether intentionally or not) or not (his last featured segment was filmed after his death and has Aaron Neville hotdogging all over it -- a little bit disgraceful).

* What happened to Sesame Street? The production team is falling apart. the show is now at the whim of commercial interests (something that both the founding folks and the OldRetainer[s] always swore against). Superfluous changes to both existing film inserts and sets have necessitated spending at the worst possible time. The show's runtime has been cut in half. The delivery of new episodes to PBS is on a nine month delay. The whole point of the advent of Sesame Street was to make available to children educational material which would help them to prepare for school, especially disadvantaged inner city children who need it the most. Moving Sesame Street to HBO defeats that whole purpose; it boils down to a price hike for access to Sesame Street, something that parents raising small children would find it all the more difficult to afford. Sesame Workshop spent decades trying to alleviate that, not only for American children, but for their peers around the world. The show seems to have strayed so far from its original purpose, and it's really sad to see. Perhaps Sesame Street should have bowed out gracefully at the end of 2015.

* A Cartoon insert about a little girl figuring out why is the puppy so sad. Well, The two thoughts were bad, but her last thought was that a big bulldog steals the little puppy a bone. And she went "OH MY!" and gives that puppy a bone. And it made the puppy feel better.

* The moment with a new Muppet character named Alex. Talking about many fathers made him very upset since his father violated the law and has to go to jail for life. They explained that incarceration. He was not the only person who had his father sent to jail. Leena had to go through her life when her father was sent to jail. This was part of the ''Little Kids, Big Challenge'' moment on Sesame Street.

--> It's hard not to be able to touch or hug each other, but Daddy blows me a kiss. I tell him I'll save it for later. Before we know it, it's time to go already.
