The 46th season of Sesame Street has moved from PBS to HBO and features notable format changes, such as shortening episodes to 30 minutes and designing a more upscale urban set, as well as having Oscar the Grouch live in a recycling bin rather than a garbage can. What do you think?

“At the very least, I’m proud of the residents of Sesame Street for holding out this long.”

“Maybe Stephen Hawking can master the alphabet in 30 minutes a day, but not my kid.”
