Almost 200 Sesame Street episodes removed as part of HBO Max Purge

A dark cloud hangs over it Sesame Street‘s famous sunny days.

As part of the ongoing, far-reaching, and seemingly merciless cleanup of many of HBO Max’s library tiles – all as part of WarnerBros. Discovery’s ambitious plan to pay down $3 billion (with a B) of debt – nearly 200 Sesame Street Episodes were pulled from the streamer.

By removing series and movies from its library, HBO Max no longer has to pay royalties for them. It’s a revenue-boosting measure for the streamer, even if the checks are made to sister company Warner Bros. Television, as was the case with many of the previous withdrawals this week.

NPR first reported the disappearance of “an unspecified selection of Sesame Street specials,” after which our sister site Variety went into more detail.

Per variety, HBO Max was previously home to about 650 total Sesame Street episodes, including seasons 2 through 4. But as of Friday morning, there are only 456 episodes left, including “a selection” from seasons 1, 5 and 7 (and all of seasons 39 through 52).
