Sesame Street confusion

So we started a "no television" rule for the children almost a year ago that, for our family, has worked out really well. We have relaxed a little bit over time---they are allowed to watch movies occasionally, and we allow a little bit of television when they are sick, but for the most part Grayson and EC don't watch tv, and Whitt has never watched it.

When they did watch tv, they really only watched Disney Channel, so Sesame Street isn't a show they have ever seen. Today, they received Valentine's Day cards in the mail from their Gee Gee, which included stickers for each of them. Grayson's card had Batman stickers, EC's had Dora stickers, and Whitt's had Sesame Street stickers. I passed out the stickers and they went to work decorating their cards with the stickers, happily chatting about the stickers, the cards, and life in general. I was cleaning up the kitchen and half-listening to their chatter when I suddenly realized what Grayson and Emma Claire were saying....they had no clue who the Sesame Street characters were, so they had named them themselves.
