** Bert and Ernie are a gay couple (debunked by Sesame Workshop). Spinoff rumours include a scenario where they're going to marry to teach kids tolerance, and a [[NightmareFuel horrific variant]] in which Ernie is then to get AIDS and [[BuryYourGays die graphically]], again all in the name of understanding. Ironically enough, the series did eventually add an HIV-positive Muppet but only in its South African version.

* WordSaladTitle: Arguably. Why would a street in New York City - even a fictional one - be named after an Asian seasoning?
** It's actually a reference to "open sesame", the idea being that the street is a place where magical things happen, something which Kermit suggested and Gordon attested to.

* {{Anvilicious}}: The Lead Away video. Some Anvils may have Needed to be Dropped at the time, but it is kinda weird that Oscar the grouch would ''agree'' to washing his hands before he eats and staying away from dust, and that he gets angry because ''he thinks they are not taking lead seriously''.

Added DiffLines:

* 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...")

** Telly, who's constantly nervous, distressed, or even paranoid, getting himself worked up about almost anything even when everyone else is in a good mood.

* CreatorsPet:
** Nearly everyone's had their turn, but the two most recent are Elmo and Abby Cadabby.
** Cookie Monster has rightfully gotten a lot of attention in recent years: he's taken to YouTube with an audition tape to host ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' as well as currently participating in the current unboxing fad, he's gotten his own TV special, he's been given the Cookie's Crumby Pictures segment on the show and has another new recurring segment in the works. In fact, not too many years ago, there was an entire episode dedicated to him spoofing Elmo's World.

** BillCosby once made frequent cameo appearances on ''Sesame Street'' and various other kids' shows. After numerous rape allegations, it's unlikely he'll ever show up again.

** It helps that the show ''was'' originally conceived to educate adults as well as children.
