    Elmo ... my favorite ... along with Count and Grover.
    This story will get overblown and once again show gay people fighting for equality.

    I would have preferred it be Big Bird ... he is annoying - the show needs to lose him.

    Yeah, but it would have meant that Mitt had inside information... better to just let that part of Republican history die.

    I've worked with Kevin on a few projects, he is the model of professionalism, so this is a little difficult to believe. Having said that, I don't REALLY know him outside of a few work related situations. Its a shame that he is being accused like this. Innocent until proven guilty.

    There's some Elmo toy out this year... I don't think sales will be high :eek:

    I don't know Elmo, but thus far what we've got is an accusation as I understand it, not a big steaming mound of evidence.

    If he is innocent then it has already been overblown since no innocent man should be publicly accused of such a horrible crime.

    If he's guilty, then I have no problem with him being labelled a child molestor in every outlet imaginable.

    I told Elmo that no good would come of his relationship with Mr Noodle but he just wouldn't listen.

    Well well well...

    dude is taking back his story

    This is real crappy to do to someone who is an icon for children...I hope "The street" welcomes him back, and america gets back to the positive image that Elmo creates for children (even if its annoying to parents)

    If I were Kevin, I'd see this fool in court, and take him for everything he is worth (which is obviously not much morally)

    Elmo is the least interesting muppet of all the Muppets.

    Not that I want the guy to have his life ruined, but I wouldn't shed a tear if Elmo the character vanished.

    Grover rocks!

    Depends on your buisness...

    If educating children is considered a bad thing, or in Elmo's case, if teaching kids that Love is a great thing...Then I'm all for it. Profit AWAY!

    I get it, you could care less....Makes you a 'groutch'. I wish there was a character that was a hater like that...

    You start with Big Bird and Elmo and Cookie
    then you move on to Grover and Count and others. ;)

    didn't realize that elmo was the only way....... the whole notion of needing TV to teach love is disturbing to say the least.

    I'm not a grouch.......just never needed TV as a shining light for my kids
