That was a clever, entertaining, and funny trailer. It's nice to know that they are still trying to at least somewhat cater to the adult (with a child) audience since they can't really expect pre-schoolers to go online and find these right?

This is one awesome trailer, but one has to think, will the game turn out to be a Schafer game?
 
Or will it just be some pandering, boring, pre-schoolers crap.
 
Sesame Street can do adult, I'm not saying swearing and gore and such. But could the Sesame Street game give an interest to adults that did grow up with Sesame Street too? If there is anyone who can do it, it's obviously Tim, but I have to wonder if it will turn out to be as funny as this trailer, or whether this is just a gimmick to get the adults to buy it for their kids.

Tim has said that this is a game designed for children. He said it was a game that he made for his son if I recall.
