Remembering Mr. Hooper
Remembering Mr. Hooper
An entry I did up for Threadless' Sesame Street contest. When considering ideas for this challenge, I searched through my memory banks for some defining moments in the show. But nothing on Sesame Street still resonates with me as much as when, as a youngster in 1983, I learned that Mr. Hooper (and actor Will Lee) passed away. The child in me still gets very upset as I remember it but, viewing the scene as an adult, I am shocked at how expertly the Sesame writers handled that moment. A truly amazing moment in children's television.

I signed up simply to thank you for sharing this. It's comforting to know my inner child isn't alone. :-)
