Update: Sesame Workshop has issued the following statement, regarding this story:

“Bob McGrath, Emilio Delgado (“Luis”) and Roscoe Orman (“Gordon”) remain a beloved part of the Sesame family and continue to represent us at public events. To us, and for millions of people worldwide, they are a treasured part of Sesame Street. Since the show began, we are constantly evolving our content and curriculum, and hence, our characters, to meet the educational needs of children. As a result of this, our cast has changed over the years, though you can still expect to see many of them in upcoming productions. As we’ve stated previously, Sesame Workshop retains sole creative control over the show. HBO does not oversee the production.”

Bob McGrathThe Street will never be the same.

Actor Bob McGrath – affectionately known as “Bob” on Sesame Street – recently announced that he, along with other longtime cast members Emilio Delgado (“Luis”) and Roscoe Orman (“Gordon”) have been released from Sesame Street.

Some newer cast members, including Alan Muraoka (a cast memeber since 1998) and Chris Knowings (since 2007), will remain.

McGrath revealed in July, at Florida Supercon, that he and his fellow veteran cast members were let go. To hear from “Bob” himself, subscribe to The MuppetCast Podcast and listen to Show #287.
