David Wright Appearance Dropped From Upcoming Sesame Street Episode

Earlier this week, a sketch featuring Katy Perry was dropped from an upcoming episode of Sesame Street when parents complained about her attire.  Well it seems that the pop singer will have some company on the banned list now that the producers of Sesame Street announced today that they are also cutting a segment featuring Mets third baseman David Wright.

The controversy also stems from parents complaints about David's choice of dress.  According to Wright's agent, the whole thing is a bit of a mix-up.  "We set the whole thing up over the phone.", says Wright's agent. "It was a bad connection.  I explained to David that they wanted him to come in and teach Elmo about the letter S and the letter M.  Somehow he heard it as they wanted him to come in and teach Elmo about S&M."  Ever the good soldier, Wright suited up in his nicest bondage attire and went to shoot the scene.

Though they decided to drop the sketch, the producers of Sesame Street have been very understanding about the whole situation and hope to have Wright back for another appearance in a later episode.

"David has always been very cooperative.", says the show's executive producer Carol-Lynne Parente.  "He's a great young man and we would love to have him back.  Though I must say I can't for the life of me understand how someone could think Sesame Street would want to do a bondage sketch?  I think the season may be taking a toll on poor David." 

All articles featured on The Apple are fictitious. No Mets were harmed in the writing of this story.


  1. The real problem with that episode is David trying to get to "3rd Base" with Miss Piggy.

  2. Trying to get to 3rd base with Miss Piggy??? I think it's more like Ernie.
