Home Your Tech Entertainment Porn says "open Sesame Street"

For around 20 minutes on Sunday, the Sesame Street YouTube channel was showing a little more than usual.

Ok, before we start, let's get this out in the open - the pictures are here.

According to Graham Cluley of AV supplier Sophos, someone claiming to be Mredxwx replaced the usual muppet-based content with muppets of a rather different kind.  The 'real' Mredxwx denies all knowledge of the incident (please ignore the very obvious typo in that video).

It seems that either Youtube or a user identified the 'mistake' and had the channel shut down fairly quickly for "repeated or severe violations of our Community Guidelines."  However when iTWire visited the channel in the reporting of this incident, all seemed right with the world.

In a side-bar to the channel, the site administrators have posed an apology: "We apologize for any inconvenience our audience may have experienced yesterday on our Sesame Street YouTube channel. Our channel was temporarily compromised, but we have since restored our original line-up of the best classic Sesame Street video clips featuring Cookie Monster, Big Bird, Grover, Oscar the Grouch, and the rest of the fuzzy, feathered, and googly-eyed friends you remember from childhood.

"If you're watching videos with your preschooler and would like to do so in a safe, child-friendly environment, please join us at http://www.sesamestreet.org
