November 20: Elmo puppeteer resigns amid scandal
Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash resigned from "Sesame Street" amid allegations he sexually abused underage boys, bringing an end to a 28-year career in which he turned the furry red monster into one of the most beloved -- and lucrative -- characters on TV and in toy stores. "Personal matters have diverted attention away from the important work 'Sesame Street' is doing and I cannot allow it to go on any longer", the 52-year-old performer said in a statement. "I am deeply sorry to be leaving and am looking forward to resolving these personal matters privately."
