  • i LOVE it! nowadays though parents would be in uproar over this and claim that Sesame Street is showing sexually explicit material and corrupting their children.

  • AWESOME! I think there be a lot of debate about it. Many would love it and many would hate it. I think they should run them again.

  • I was shocked when I saw that the early years of SS on DVD came with "Parental Warning Labels" Seriously? I wish they would bring back stuff like this!

  • They'd probably flip out!!
    How dare someone say breast and teach children how mommies feed their babies! (sarcasm of course!)

  • OMG parents would FLIP out! I mean Katy Perry was bounced for having to much cleavage! My 3 year old just watched that clip with me though and thought nothing of it. We even talked about it when it was done.

  • Depends on the parents watching. LOL I would be all excited and think it awesome. I know some folks that would call it porn and think it WAY to risqué for ANYONE to ever see almost to much for the nursing baby.

  • "That's awesome. It's too bad we're so touchy about stuff like that now. I think it would get pulled if it were a recent episode...people would deem it "inappropriate". To call THAT inappropriate when we let our kids see things they *really* shouldn't see....kinda ironic. :-P I think we're a little backwards"

    I agree with this comment someone left on youtube...

  • I BTW totally appreciated it. It wasn't 'graphic' or 'pornish' it was totally natural and a nice way to introduce the idea to small children. I loved it.

  • I think it is GREAT! I am saving it and will show my DD (4) later. I am pregnant and plan to breastfeed (as I breastfeed her) and this is a great way to explain it.
