** Some old-school fans also feel that the show has indulged in too much of PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad since TheNineties. However, the show caused an uproar in its early years because of its cultural pluralism, so accusations of this are pretty baseless.

** In the 1990s, Elmo received his own half-hour segment, considerably slowing the breakneck pace and kitchen-sink randomness of the show's structure. Of course, "Elmo's World" is no longer part of the show, and many kids who grew up on it now miss it.

* NoSuchThingAsBadPublicity: ''Supposedly'' averted with Sesame Street, or at least its Latin Spanish counterpart ''Plaza Sésamo''. In the late 90s, Abelardo appeared in OtroRollo, a popular Mexican night time show. That alone wouldn't be an issue... except the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=goVEHDnnqqM sketch]] was full of adult jokes, references, and puns. ''While it was never confirmed'', supposedly the Children's Television Workshop (now Sesame Workshop) wasn't too pleased when they found out both the official performer and suit were used in such a sketch, and demanded that their characters never get involved with the show or such a stunt ever again, even when it could be devated the sketch was successful in making the show relevant to adults again. Abelardo, Pancho Contreras, and Lola would appear several years later in the show to promote ''Plaza Sésamo'', but the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1dnCR8HU6RA interview]] is obviously scripted and, compared to the Abelardo sketch from years before, the adult humor is kept at the very minimun.
