The absence of the 200 episodes may be due to this.
In contrast to the roughly 650 episodes they had earlier, the streaming site identified 456 "Sesame Street" episodes as being accessible on Friday.
Only episodes from seasons 1, 5, and 7 as well as the most recent seasons 39–52 are shown on HBO Max.
A representative for HBO Max said in a statement to Variety that "Sesame Street" "is and has long been a major part of television culture and a crown jewel of our preschool offering."
The statement stated, "We are committed to continuing to bring 'Sesame Street' into families' homes.
