According to the lawsuit, Sesame Workshop thinks that "the promotion of The Happytime Murders should succeed or fail on its own merits, not on a cynical, unlawful attempt to deceive and confuse the public into associating it with the most celebrated children's program in history".

ALL STREET." tagline with the hope and intention of commercially appropriating Sesame's mark and associated goodwill and implying an association that does not exist to promote the release of their movie.
In the first trailer for the film, McCarthy - who plays a police detective - can be seen exchanging dialogue with a puppet who uses vulgar language and makes sexual references to her, which the 47-year-old actress responds to by punching him.

While we're disappointed that Sesame Street does not share in the fun, we are confident in our legal position.

The film promises loads of violence, drug use, and felt-on-felt sex, and is definitely not a movie you'd want to take your kids to.
A spokesman for the movie production company, STX, released a statement that expressed no regret for the film.
