For the rest of you Sesame Street aficionados in need of a fix to ease the doldrums of a Friday afternoon, you can stop your grouching. Sesame Street is now offering clips from past episodes on its website.
This is just one more example of television studios giving fans ways to watch their content legally online. There are hundreds if not thousands of Sesame Street videos on YouTube, all possibly illegal. But now I can sit and watch Sesame Street on my computer and not break any federal laws. Which is A-OK.
