The Saddest Moments In TV History, Ranked

#26: Big Bird Learns Mr. Hooper Isn't Coming Back On 'Sesame Street'
When Big Bird learned that Mr. Hooper died he didn't really know what that meant — he thought he was gone just for a day or two. So when the gang helped him realize that his friend was never coming back, it was a teachable moment for kids. We learned that we were lucky for getting to know the passed person, and we still get to be with them in our memories. For anyone who has ever lost someone they loved, this hit right in the heart.
