‘Sesame Street’ newest trick: cheese like butter

And you thought cheese twinkles just because “Sesame Street” introduced the addition of melted cheese to the script. Sorry. A new Sesame Street segment, “How Your Child Gets His/Her Brain Going,” appropriately samples famous neuroplasticity pioneers, a classic “Sesame Street” poem and even the theory of homeostasis (or, what our heady brain models seem to be explaining).

Somehow, it all leads back to a throwaway line from the brief “Sesame Street” clip embedded in this story:

“Sometimes, though, things get so out of control that you start to wonder if there isn’t something really wrong with your baby.”

Don’t turn to antibiotics just yet.

This isn’t the first time Mike Pence has been mired in controversy for his avocation as pro-life vice president. In January 2018, he drew heat after accidentally launching a guest speaker from Alabama, Rabbi Levi Shemtov, who promoted a DIY conversion kit for kids. Her following grew, including praise from unapologetic white supremacists, but Pence’s office was quick to distance him from Shemtov, his office reiterated later.

Previously, the media spotlight has shifted, at least temporarily, to “Sesame Street” itself, which will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2019. Yesterday, news broke that the production has partnered with Netflix for an original, long-form format series and documentary that will be a weekly whole-episode storytelling experience.

It all makes us feel like we might be waking up sooner rather than later.
