Sesame Street actor Bob McGrath, who’s played Bob the music teacher since the series premiered in 1969, announced at Florida Supercon earlier this month that he and fellow long-running actors Emilio Delgado and Roscoe Orman were let go from the cast. The decision reportedly came after HBO acquired Sesame Street in August 2015.

“The show has gone under a major turnaround, going from an hour to a half hour. HBO has gotten involved also. And they let all of the original cast members go, with the exception of Alan Muraoka — who is probably 20 years younger than the rest of us — and Chris Knowings, who is also young,” McGrath said on the podcast The MuppetCast on Wednesday.
