To pick the flowers or not to pick the flowers? In Sesame Street‘s The Flower Picker, a 1972 animation from Episode 0416, a person happens upon some fragrant flowers and learns an important lesson in conservation.
The animation’s visual style suggests that the short was created by Bruce Cayard, who “designed and produced many classic animated segments for Sesame Street and The Electric Company, beginning in the early 1970s and continuing as late as 1999.”
