I use to watch Sesame Street all the time when I was younger. In the past couple of years I’ve caught a couple of the newer episodes. I like to think of these timelines as BE (Before Elmo) and AE (After Elmo) since I watched Sesame Street before the scourge know as Elmo was introduced. My favorite Sesame Street character was Snuffy the Snuffleupagus. For those of you who don’t know Snuffy is Big Bird’s best friend. For 14 years the adults of Sesame Street didn’t believe that Snuffy existed but on January 14th, 1985 he was finally seen by the adults.
In my internet travels I’ve discovered a darker side of Sesame Street. Apparently Snuffy was involved with a Sesame Street drug scandal since he is a suspected cocaine user. As well there have been allegations that Snuffy is a Elmo Molester. Apparently he is also a very angry malicious deity and will wipe out all non-believers. Possibly because of all the Anti-Snuffy propaganda that have been coming from the Pro-Elmo movement but mostly because people didn’t believe him.
With that said and done which is your favorite Sesame Street Character?
