It pretty much goes like this ''Series/SesameStreet'' is or has pretty much a [[TheLandBeforeTime Great Valley]] like haven/secured neighborhood for all that remains of New York City's children within the svuniverse and probably was a natural habitat for its [[{{Muppet}} non human residents]] which pretty much explains why most of its residents appear to live in blissful ignorance (at least its children and child like muppets) of the far more lethal and torturous world around them.

Although back in 1999 with the ending of ''Homicide'' and the start of ''SVU'', the show was ostensibly a vehicle/spin-off for [[JohnMunch]], this is no longer the case.
** The increasing flimsiness of his storylines/past (him apparently growing up in a apartment on the East Side instead of in Baltimore, various people on his life have been mysteriously [[ChuckCunninghamSyndrome dropped]] and [[RememberTheNewGuy added]], like his brother and his Uncle, respectively, etc.)
** The nasty habit of actors being [[YouLookFamiliar rotated over and over again]], even ''[[ContinuitySnarl established]]'' [[ContinuitySnarl previous characters]]. (Creator/AndreBraugher playing someone ''other'' than [[EnsembleDarkhorse Pembleton]]? How dare they?! Plus, Munch's line of "[[WhamLine You look familiar.]]" to him wasn't necessary.)
** Also, the lack of almost none of the characters from the show by name save for Lewis, who only appeared once and wasn't/isn't nearly as popular as Pembleton.
** The fact that he's no longer on the show makes you wonder why it was even considered in the same universe in the first place. At this point, the show as about as connected to ''Homicide'' as it is to ''Series/LawAndOrderCriminalIntent''!

necessary and looked as a knock to [[TakeThatAudience any]] ''[[TakeThatAudience HLOTS]]'' [[TakeThatAudience fans]] [[ArmedWithCanon or their writers]].) To say nothing of Stabler, who apparently used to work as a bounty hunter from Miami...
** Also, the lack of almost none of the characters from the previous show are included or are mentioned by name save for his ex, Gwen (who apparently is now mentally ill) and Lewis, who only appeared once and wasn't/isn't nearly as popular as Pembleton.
** The fact that he's no longer on the show after years of being DemotedToExtra makes you wonder why it was even considered in the same universe in the first place. At this point, the show as is about as connected to ''Homicide'' as it is to ''Series/LawAndOrderCriminalIntent''!

[[WMG: In the SVUniverse, anger is directly proportional with fertility.]]

Ragebots Elliot and Nick, both with an extremely disproportionate chance of conceiving with every heterosexual encounter

Sometimes angry but usually cool characters with only one child: Melinda, Fin

Chill characters with no children: Cragen*, George, Munch

*[[DependingOnTheWriter]]

Exceptions include Casey, Alex, and Rafael, who fit the “generally chill but usually angry” pattern but have no kids. However, their impulse to try and hold back on their anger for professionalism’s sake might inhibit their fertility.

Amanda is emotional but often in other ways to anger, giving her the same fertility as the chill characters.

Olivia is often furious but has no biological children, but she might have had some other issue preventing her from conceiving that even a Hulk-esque fit of rage couldn’t overcome.
