“Farewell, Mr. Hooper.”

This is the key scene from “Farewell, Mr. Hooper,” the episode of Sesame Street when Mr. Hooper died, in which the grownups explain death to Big Bird. It was shot in one take. It’s the first time I’ve seen this since I was four, and it’s sadder than ever.

  1. Oh Waldo. As much as I watched Sesame Street growing up, I never saw this episode. Thank you for sharing it now.

    Hugs, Malena
