I think they did it to keep up with Yo Gaba Gaba, how routinely has on celebrities.

The Jack Black one being one of the best episodes.

I'm glad I have no idea what Yo Gaba Gaba is, though I'm sure some day I will know all too well.

2 to 4 yr old kids care about celebrities appearing on their shows? Hell I bet if you asked them who Katy Perry was none would even know. Most probably can't even say her name. Its for the dads.

As a father of a 2-YO, I don't want her on SS either.

I did enjoy when the First Lady was on though:

Just curious what makes Katy Perry a whore???

But, I wouldn't want her on a children's show showing cleavage or wearing a very short skirt. I just think it is inappropriate for Sesame Street.
Like some 2 or 3 yr old kid is going to see her and get his first woody. At their age this is a Woody.

Anyone else see the irony with a "Woody" coming with a choking hazard??

WE LOVE YO GABBA GABBA. Muno the cyclops is awesome (you may know him from the Kia Super Bowl commercial)

Their celebrities, including Jack Black, are fully covered.

While their are Disney actresses who act like strippers...they do it on their own time, not on Disney shows. They're pretty innocent on that network, on the actual shows.

Sesame Street is for an even younger audience, and what Perry is wearing on these images is very inappropriate for that viewing audience and the show in general.

Glad they wised up and pulled it before airing it, but it's still a bit troubling they considered her in the first place.

I bet most of those immature comments are from teens and non-parents.

The ones in the TMZ comments are definitely teens or younger people, but those three posted were actual comments from parents.

That's not true at all. Sesame Street IS more privately funded than what they were when they started out in the sixties. In fact, their format change (to Elmo's World) was the result of low ratings. CTW isn't funded solely on charitable contributions. In fact, I'd argue that the CTW relies more on a commercial based market than what they did twenty years ago.
