It's no secret that I find Elmo to be one of the most annoying characters to ever grace my television. What I didn't realize is that annoying factor is actually the result of a deep seated personality disorder. In fact, the whole gang could benefit from a local psychiatrist moving in next to Mr. Hooper's store.
Check it out this list of disorders found on Pleated Jeans…
If you think this is bad, I'd hate to see what's wrong with the Peanuts characters. I'm pretty sure Charlie Brown is suicidal.
I LOVE this! I have a few others…Prairie Dawn is a controlling personality. Ernie and Big Bird are co-dependent. Zoe has an attachment disorder being attached to things like her pet rock. Telly is paranoid and expects the worst of every situation.
ha! these are great. I am with you on Peanuts though. Every time I watch Charlie Brown specials with my son, I’m amazed at how depressing it is to watch. half of the kids seem depressed and the other half are just plain (dare I say) a-holes with all the insults and stuff. maybe I am just too sensitive.
This is hilarious!
I loved Sesame Street. I watched it before Elmo came on when they still had some of those psychedelic alphabet clips. I loved Super Grover and waiter Grover. The yip yipswere a ffavorite too. It sure has changed.
The Yippers! The best characters to ever appear on Sesame Street, IMO 😉
If they were true to form they would no longer focus on the letter of the day, but instead the medication of the day…
At the risk of sounding like I don’t because I did find this funny I have Aspergers and a sense of humor. I enjoy humor a lot and sometimes I am even humorous myself. I don’t “prefer to be alone” either. Its not a personality disorder or a mental illness, it is a genetic difference. It kinda seems like its best to just not tell anyone you have Aspergers or they will think you are a selfish insufferable computer nerd or maybe a serial killer or whatever stereotype is out there these days. I kinda think the Seasame Street characters seem like people with normal if slightly exaggerated idiosyncrasies. Which is more than than you can say for most cardboard one dimensional kids show characters. Back when the show started in the 70s(pre Elmo, not a big Elmo fan myself) nobody would have thought to give them all those labels. They weren’t household words yet. I really despise how we feel the need to slap labels on all our kids nowadays, and drug them up and subject them to “therapy”.
