Sesame Street!?

with one comment

Did anyone else think of Oscar The Grouch from Sesame Street when confronted with Nagg/Nell’s characters? I don’t know if it’s just the mere coincidence that both characters reside in trashcans or their argumentative personality, but I couldn’t help but think about the possible connection throughout the play. I did some research and unfortunately couldn’t find any concrete evidence if one influenced the other, but I did figure out that Beckett’s “Endgame” premiered almost a decade earlier than Sesame Street. Maybe Beckett’s character in fact did influence the Muppet’s creator? If you find anything, please let me know. . .
