Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sesame Street? Sure, you turn left on North Ave and make sure you wave hello to Omar at the North Avenue Motel. Then when you see The Bada Bing strip club, hang the next right. Drive about six traffic lights until you see an abandoned school, then make the next right, that’s Sesame Street. If you see a sign for Winterfell, you’ve gone too far north and will have to take the next exit for Silicon Valley.

Sesame Street‘s new home is definitely where everything’s NOT A-OK, and probably doesn’t have friendly neighbors there. But it’s now their new home. On Thursday, a deal was announced to bring the legendary children’s show exclusively to HBO.

Sesame Street, which begins in late fall 2015, will air on HBO for the next five seasons. But fear not cheapos, after a nine-month window, episodes will broadcast free of charge on PBS. Sesame Street has been entertaining children exclusively on PBS for the past 45 years.

HBO’s vast pockets will allow the show to nearly double the number of episodes it produces every season, from 18 to 35. Plus one would imagine that the production value will soar as well.

Once the Internet learned of the odd pairing of sweet innocent child entertainment with nudity, violence and beheadings, they went to town.
