Losing generational icons is never easy. Especially when it’s someone like Bob McGrath from the long-running children’s program, “Sesame Street.” McGrath joined the series at the very beginning in 1969. He played Bob Johnson, the second-longest reoccurring human character on the show, until 2016 when he left the series. (He did appear again a few times though.)
Bob McGrath passed away on December 4th, 2022 at the age of 90.
Some “Sesame Street” co-stars and The Muppets stars shared their grief.
The Sesame Workshop also offered their collective thoughts on McGrath.
Thank you so much for everything, Bob. You were one in a million.
