Early Aug. 13, Sesame Street announced a surprising partnership with HBO that will give the premium cable network, known for graphic, graphic content, a whole lot of children's programming.
Sesame will be able to produce almost twice as much new content as previous seasons, and for the first time ever, make the show available free of charge to PBS and its member stations after a nine-month window.
It didn't take long for Twitter to weigh in on this turn of events.
