Elmo Puppeteer Kevin Clash’s Resignation Joins The Weird History Of Kids’ TV Show Scandals

Hearing that Kevin Clash has resigned from Sesame Street following a lawsuit from a second accuser, this one a man in his 30s alleging the Elmo puppeteer had a relationship with him while he was underaged, was bad enough. Then we realized Clash was also the voice of Baby from the sitcom Dinosaurs and Splinter in the TMNT movies. Three things we loved as children…sullied. Of course, Clash’s crisis isn’t the first time a kids’ TV show has become embroiled in a scandal. In fact, it’s not even the first time Sesame Street has!

1) Katy Perry’s Risque Play Clothes

Sesame Street was forced to cut a “Hot n Cold” parody duet between Katy Perry and Elmo in September 2010 after the video was released online and viewers noticed Perry’s bosoms exploding out of her low-cut dress. Okay, it wasn’t that bad, but everyone knows the human breast will strike a toddler blind where he or she stands. Right? We learned that in college.

2) Tinky Winky’s Alternative Lifestyle

Obviously purple Teletubby Tinky Winky must be a homosexual, despite the fact that he’s an cuddly androgynous monster living in an entirely fictional universe. That’s what conservative pundit Jerry Falwell claimed in 1999 at least, pointing to Tinky’s purple fur, triangle head and purse as proof. Oh no! The three things that will turn your toddler gay on sight! We also learned about that in college. Did we mention we went to college in the back of a bowling alley?

3) Pokemon’s Seizure-Inducing Visuals

Pokemon will also turn your kid gay. Just kidding! Pokemon may, however, cause him or her to have seizures. The animated Pokemon episode Dennō Senshi Porygon, or Electric Soldier Porygon, aired in Japan on December 16, 1997. The ep featured flashing blue and red lights as well as stobe lights, the disorienting effects of which allegedly put 685 viewers in the hospital. Oh, but if we’d only known the medical risks of catching them all!

4) The Pee Wee Incident

After delighting kids and adults alike with the innocent weirdness of enthusiastic man-child Pee Wee Herman on Pee-Wee’s Playhouse since 1986, actor Paul Reubens was arrested for masturbating publicly in a porno theater in 1991. The granddaddy of all kids’ TV show scandals essentially ended Reubens run as Pee Wee, and, unsuprisingly, does not get any less upsetting to type twenty years after the fact.

5) Bob The Builder’s Potty Mouth

The animators behind Bob The Builder had to remaster and rerelease the Bob The Builder Christmas special back in 1999 after parents complained that it sounded as if the tiny construction worker mumbled, “f—ing hell” under his breath, despite the obvious fact that there is no way they would have Bob actually say that. The words Bob actually said? “I don’t know. I thought this was going to be easy.” Didn’t we all, Bob. Didn’t we all.

Love It or Leave It: Katy Perry’s Fierce Face (and Pretty Dress)

photo of katy perry pictures photos
This is Katy Perry blah blah blah doing something for the Dream Foundation blah blah blah and this is the outfit that she wore. I know that we’re supposed to be all impressed and focused on the fact that Katy is doing something wonderful with her spare time and with her money, and honestly, I am quite impressed, because it’s nice that Katy’s not just another pretty face doing pretty things with her pretty finances, but that’s just not what I want to talk about this evening.

No, what I want to talk about is what in the world kind of face is Katy making in this picture? And yeah, I can get past it, because Those Earrings, Damn, and yes, she does look just lovely despite the weird, constipated face.

Better yet, though, let’s talk about this dress. Because I love it. I need it, I want it, I crave it. I wouldn’t even need to own it, just trying it on once or twice would be enough for me. Honestly, take a good, hard look at this thing:

Katy’s whole look—love it or leave it?

Rihanna and Chris Brown ‘Not Together’

Posted by Adam

RIHANNA and Chris Brown aren’t a couple, she insists.

The Umbrella hitmaker — who had recently reunited with the 23-year-old RB star despite the fact he is still under supervised probation for beating her in 2009 — was asked during a recent interview if she is still dating the Turn Up the Music hitmaker.

“No. Not together,” she said.

Recent reports claimed Rihanna’s pal Katy Perry wasn’t happy about her relationship with Brown.

“They’re barely talking and ever since the couple reunited, there has been tension between them,” a source said.

“Katy has been spending a lot of time with pals Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.

“Katy fears Rihanna is making a huge mistake and doesn’t want to be part of it.”
