Sesame Street Breastfeeding Video

In this Sesame Street clip from 1977, singer Buffy Sainte-Marie explains breastfeeding to Big Bird.

I have to wonder if, in this age of more “edgy” children’s programming, would a similar show have the guts to be so straightforward. It doesn’t seem so controversial to me; little kids must watch their moms breastfeed all the time, and having a children’s show explain it makes sense. Just not on Spongebob Squarepants.
