It was clear from the beginning, Katy Perry was not dressed appropriately in her Sesame Street segment. The folks on Sesame Street received so much heat over the boob filled extravaganza featuring Elmo, that they yanked the video off Youtube and canceled it from airing on the Sesame Street 41st season broadcast.
In the following statement issued by reps at Sesame Street they try to justify the “Too hot for Tots” video by saying they produce on two levels, for the child and the adult. The Perry segment was axed from airing on broadcast TV but the statement goes on to say the video would still be available on Youtube, however, they must have changed their minds because the video was deleted from Youtube as well.
Statement: “Sesame Street has a long history of working with celebrities across all genres, including athletes, actors, musicians and artists. Sesame Street has always been written on two levels, for the child and adult. We use parodies and celebrity segments to interest adults in the show because we know that a child learns best when co-viewing with a parent or care-giver. We also value our viewer’s opinions and particularly those of parents. In light of the feedback we’ve received on the Katy Perry music video which was released on You Tube only, we have decided we will not air the segment on the television broadcast of Sesame Street, which is aimed at preschoolers. Katy Perry fans will still be able to view the video on You Tube.”
