    Not Bob, Gordon, or Luis anymore.... SHAME ON YOU, SESAME STREET!!! :pissed:

    F is for Fired! Sesame Street cuts Bob, Gordon and Luis from its beloved human cast after 45 years on the show following new move to HBO
    • Bob McGrath, Emilio Delgado and Roscoe Orman were axed Thursday
    • Decision was made not by PBS but by producer Sesame Workshop
    • The nonprofit began a new partnership with HBO in January
    • McGrath, 84, was part of the cast when the show premiered in 1969
    • Delgado, 76, joined as Luis the handyman in 1971
    • Orman, 72, has played original character Gordon since 1974
    Sesame Street has cut long-running characters Bob, Gordon and Luis.

    The children's show said Thursday that actor Bob McGrath, 84, part of the original cast in 1969, and Emilio Delgado, 76, who plays Luis the handyman, will no longer appear on the show.

    Both last performed in episodes taped in 2013.

    Roscoe Orman, 72, who has played original character Gordon since 1974, has filmed new appearances for the current season of the show, but will not appear on the show after that.

    Beginning this year, Sesame Street is airing on HBO as well as on PBS.

    McGrath, said at an event earlier this month that since the move to HBO 'they let all of the original cast members go',USA Todayreported.

    McGrath announced at the Florida Supercon earlier this month that major changes were afoot on Sesame Street.

    'They let all of the original cast members go, with the exception of Alan Muraoka — who is probably 20 years younger than the rest of us — and Chris Knowings, who is also young,' McGrath said at the event.

    'As of this season, I have completed my 45th season this year. And the show has gone under a major turn around, going from an hour to a half-hour.'

    A statement that was posted to the Sesame Street Twitter on Thursday confirmed that Bob the music teacher, Gordon the science teacher and Luis the handyman had been axed.

    However the statement said the three will 'continue to represent us at public events'.

    'Bob McGrath, Emilio Delgado ('Luis') and Roscoe Orman ('Gordon') remain a beloved part of the Sesame family and continue to represent us at public events,' the statement read.

    'To us, and for millions of people worldwide, they are a treasured part of Sesame Street. Since the show began, we are constantly evolving our content and curriculum, and hence, our characters, to meet the educational needs of children.

    He also played a pimp named Tyrone on All My Children, which I watched with my mom when I was little. Seeing him on BOTH shows was a little confusing... :eek:

    Bob, Luis, and Gordon were good role models when I was a kid.

    Kids' tantrums force ‘Sesame Street’ to reconsider

    “Sesame Street” is brought to you today by the letter U — for U-turn.

    A day after news broke that three long-running human characters were being tossed out with Oscar the Grouch’s trash, the children show’s producers may be having second thoughts, Fox News Latino is reporting.

    After Sesame Workshop announced that Bob McGrath (Bob), Roscoe Orman (Gordon) and Emilio Delgado (Luis) were being let go after serving 47, 42 and 45 seasons respectively, grown-up kids threw tantrums all over social media.


    "Due to your overwhelming reaction regarding the status of myself and others on the show, the new producers of 'Sesame Street' have reached out to us with an expressed desire to continue our longstanding relationship, to be initiated with a meeting in September,” Delgado told Fox News Latino by email.

    “Hopefully, this will result in the inclusion of veteran cast members in upcoming productions.”

    The original move was seen as a result of the new pact between Sesame Workshop, the company behind the popular TV show, and HBO announced this past January. Episodes air first on the premium cable networks first for the next five seasons, then hit PBS following a nine-month gap.
