Well a little digging on Youtube brings us this from the Plastinot front.
Presented by a German pederast called der sandmannen (possibly the sandman) he was absent from TCC's portrayal. Though looking at him he'd fit right in. Apparently part of German Sesame Street, hopefully never abbreviated over there, it actually looks like a genuinely great addition to the show.
We got Sesame Street on Channel 4 either as lunchtime fodder or early morning kids TV, but all other stuff has drawn a blank.
