Nooooooo! Three of our favourite humans from Sesame Street have been let go: Bob the music teacher (Bob McGrath), Gordon the science teacher (Roscoe Orman) and Luis the Fix-it Guy (Emilio Delgado) have all been given the boot from our favourite childhood street.
McGrath had been on the Street since the very first season – back in 1969 – and Orman joined the show five years later (the character Gordon was originally played by Garrett Saunders). Gordon’s wife Susan will remain on the show for now.
When Sesame Street moved from PBS to HBO the show was eventually shortened to half an hour, scaled back on its satires of adult programs, with changes to the set and integration of lessons into storylines rather than separate teaching segments.
