A legend has died!

David Smyrl, the actor best-known for playing Mr. Handford on Sesame Street, died on Tuesday at Lukenau Medical Center in Philadelphia. He was 80 years old.

Smyrl joined Sesame Street in 1990, playing the former fireman-turned-store owner, and was with the show through 1998.

He played the character a little less grumpy than did the previous actor, Leonard Jackson, and Smyrl was well-liked throughout his tenure on the show.

According to reports, the actor died of lung cancer, a disease he had developed back in January.

The actor also appeared routinely on the sitcom Benson in the 1970s, winning a People's Choice Award for his work there, and he played contractor Sam Lucas on The Cosby Show, on which he also was a writer.

Our thoughts are with his family and friends.

Elmo can really deliver that witty banter!

On Saturday, Sesame Street packed up and moved to HBO from PBS for its 46th season!

It's no surprise that the premium cable network is an inneresting home for the preschool classic, being that most shows on HBO cater to a more adult audience!

So, Jimmy Kimmel decided to help the newbie get accustomed to a more mature network by combining footage of Sesame Street with audio from the HBO dramedy Girls!

In the Jimmy Kimmel Live clip, Elmo and Abby have a hilarious discussion about sexuality courtesy of dialogue used in a scene with Lena Dunham and Andrew Rannells!

If you're wondering why they didn't spoof Game Of Thrones instead — Sesame Street already took care of that on its own!
