Questions about Elmo_Edge.jpg

FILE - This Jan. 24, 2011 file photo shows "Sesame Street" muppet Elmo posing for a portrait with the assistance of puppeteer Kevin Clash in the Fender Music Lodge during the 2011 Sundance Film Festival to promote the documentary "Being Elmo" in Park City, Utah. Too often, it seems, the happy band of Muppets on"Sesame Street" are faced with hairpin detours through the mean streets of politics and scandal. Big Bird became an unwitting player in a presidential debate and Elmo puppeteer Clash faced an allegation that he had had a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old boy _ an accusation that was withdrawn the next day. But the show's producers can take solace in one simple fact: Their target child audience remains blissfully unaware.
