TV for kids

I was very amused to see an item about how old Sesame Street episodes aren't intended for viewing by today's youth. In recent viewings of The Electric Company with Babygoat, there was one moment in the sequence of 'changing the word by interchanging letters' where they made the word 'rum', something I felt would not have passed muster these days. There have also been some hints of violence (explosion sound effects) that I can't believe would make it to the kiddy screen these days. I've seen nothing, however, as out there as what I was reminded of when we watched The Muppet Movie: the character of Crazy Harry.
