  • Will Elmo move back to Sesame Street?

All three alleged molestation cases against former Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash have been thrown for failing to meet the statute of limitations filing deadline, according to TMZ.

Now Clash just has to deal with a destroyed career and the derision of multitudes. Clash maintains his innocence.

Meanwhile, who will be the new Elmo? The Children's Television Workshop told TMZ back in April that no decisions had been made for a permanent replacement. Since there's a new Muppet named Alex who's dad is in prison, and Bert and Ernie can now legally get married, who's to say Elmo can't have his own skeletons?
