In 1983, 20 years after the JFK assassination, another shocking TV death occurs, but at least this time Americaʹs parents are ready to help explain it to their children: Will Lee, who played Mr. Hooper on “Sesame Street,” has passed away at age 74. The showʹs producers were faced with the problem of how to explain the disappearance of Mr. Hooper. Rather than simply have another owner buy the store or have Hooper move away, the producers chose to wait until Thanksgiving Day to deal with the concept of death — so that parents could watch the show with their kids. Big Bird is reminded by neighbor Susan, “When people die, they donʹt come back.” “Ever?” Big Bird whispers.

He used to make me birdseed milk shakes.”
