Sesame Street needs no introduction, It is probably one of the most famous kids tv shows of all time, but shows like these aren’t prone to controversy and this episode is no exception.


The Wicked Witch of the West from the beloved film and book “The Wizard of Oz” crashes when her broom ends up lost and she ends up in Sesame Street. She threatens to turn Big Bird into a broom and Oscar ends up falling in love with the witch, near the end of the episode, The wicked witch changes her ways and flies away


The episode got so many complaints from angry parents saying that kids were frightened of the witch that it was banned and was never released to vhs and didn’t air reruns at all.
