Sesame Street Creators Suing STX Over "The Happytime Murders"


  • The creators of Sesame Street are suing STX films over the marketing campaign for their film "The Happytime Murders".

  • In the trailer for the film, they use the tagline "No Sesame. No Street" and shows Sesame Street like Puppets partaking in vulgar activities and language.

  • The creators argue the film's marketing is having a negative impact on the Sesame Street brand.

  • The lawsuit includes pages and pages of tweets from people saying they 'can't look at Sesame Street' the same now after watching the trailer.

  • STX hit back with a statement: "STX loved the idea of working closely with Brian Henson and the Jim Henson Company to tell the untold story of the active lives of Henson puppets when they’re not performing in front of children. While we’re disappointed that ‘Sesame Street’ does not share in the fun, we are confident in our legal position. We look forward to introducing adult moviegoers to our adorably unapologetic characters this summer."
