The scene where the adults explain to Big Bird about Mr. Hooper's death was done in one take because the actors were too emotionally exausted to perform another take.
Jesus, that is brave, brave TV. I has no idea they did this when Mr Hooper died.

My already high estimation of Sesame Street has just gone up another few notches.
Was gonna complain that this is a dupe, but the replacement link on the other one is malicious, and it's my fault. So yay for this one!
Don't care if dupe, 5 bawling stars.
Hit this head-on.
Could not finish
I have to go out in public in a few, and I'd rather not be all puffy and snotty when I do. I'll watch this later.

My cat of 14 years, Little Guinevere, died today.

Death is an irresistible force.
My heart is an immovable object.
I'm sorry for your loss, John.

Do you have a picture of your cat?

I'm so sorry.

If kitties get only the years they have on this earth, then those 14 years were Little Guinevere's eternity, and you made her eternity a happy one. You done good.

Why does it have to be this way?

Because this is the way it is.
That's what I like the most about this segment. They acknowledge that death is not fair and it is inevitable, and there is no easy answer. Nobody tried to cheer Big Bird up or make up some phony-baloney comfort of an afterlife. It's just: yup, he's dead, no, he's not coming back, and yup, it does suck. BUT we're still here, we will help you, and you'll always have your memories. My own grandfather, who was my best friend at the time, had died the year before when I was only 4, so I knew exactly how Big Bird felt, and it was comforting to me to have someone on TV who got what I was going through.
