Sesame Street sues over violent, puppet-based Happytime Murders film:
The creators of the renowned children’s TV show Sesame Street have established a lawsuit against an upcoming s*x, drugs and violence-laden puppet-based film known as the Happytime Murders.
The film uses the tagline”No Sesame. All of Street” on promotional material.
The lawsuit states this tarnishes the Sesame Street brand and confuses people into believing the two are linked.
Melissa McCarthy stars in the movie, slated for August release, where humans and puppets co-exist.
She’s given a new puppet partner in the R-rated film to attempt to solve a string of murders.
