There are not a lot of appearances of Japanese and references to Japan on Sesame Street, so of which are problematic, but there are come cool things there as well.
In the early 1970s, a series of Sesame Street sketches aired, telling stories from ancient Japan. Relying on traditional Japanese music, punctuated by a ringing gong, the tales were told by a stoic, seated storyteller. Recurring characters within these stories included The Emperor of Japan, The Young Son (Sesame Street) and The Evil Prime Minister.
