'F' is for 'fired': Veteran 'Sesame Street' human cast members let go



Veteran human stars of the iconic children's show "Sesame Street" have been "graciously let go," according to CNN. 

Bob McGrath, Emilio Delgado and Roscoe Orman, who played Bob, Luis and Gordon, respectively, will no longer appear on the show, McGrath told ABC News. 

"HBO has gotten involved also," McGrath told CNN. "And so they let all of the original cast members go, with the exception of Alan Muraoka [who plays Alan, the owner of Hooper's store], who is still on the show and who is probably 20 years younger than the rest of us, and Chris Knowings [who plays Chris], who is also young and they are terrific, wonderful people."

McGrath praised Muraoka and Knowings, calling them "terrific, wonderful people and really great actors and performers." 

"Sesame Street" tweeted the official announcement Thursday. In that announcement, the show reemphasized that HBO does not oversee production of the series.
