* The book "It's Not Fair!" has a particularly sad part near the end - upon seeing Ernie get all the credit for their lemonade stand, Bert snaps and angrily starts ranting about how HE did all the work and nobody even thanks him for it...before running off in tears, making everyone feel guilty, especially Ernie. Happily, there's a HeartwarmingMoment when Ernie uses the money earned from the lemonade to buy Bert a present toc cheer him up.

* The changes to ''Sesame Street'' seem to be biting them ''hard''. 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 bring children educational material which would help them to prepare for school, especially disadvantaged inner city children who need it the most. [[SellOut 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.

** 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 disrespectful).
