PBS Kids Sprout Host & Anal Sex

No. Really. I’m not kidding. I watch Melanie and her sugary, singsong voice every. single, day. Via AP:

(AP) � The PBS Kids Sprout network has fired the host of The Good Night Show after learning she had appeared in videos called Technical Virgin.

The host, Melanie Martinez, had alerted network officials about one of the videos late last week and she was immediately taken off the air.

“PBS Kids Sprout has determined that the dialogue in this video is inappropriate for her role as a preschool program host and may undermine her character’s credibility with our audience,” said Sandy Wax, network president.

If I can stop laughing for just a second, and SHOW YOU THE VIDEO

Did she think that as host of a HUGE kid’s program no one would find the ANAL SEX video? Really?

Melanie drove me nuts on Sprout. Now I think I like her.


  1. OH. MY. GOD.

    Is it wrong that I’m laughing?

  2. Queen of Spain says:

    You can’t possibly be laughing as hard as I am. I’m dying. You don’t understand. It’s like suddenly seeing Steve from Blue’s Clues sing a real song, as opposed to “Blue skadoo we can too!” It’s that earth shattering. And it involves anal sex. Bonus!

  3. I’m laughing MY ASS OFF!

    How about this one?


  4. Queen of Spain says:

    This is the best thing to happen to this stay at home mom via the news in a Loooooooooooooong time.

    I\’m dying. I am absolutely on the floor peeing my pants dying with laughter.

    Oh Melanie. Melanie and her anal sex and vibrators.

    It\’s like Christmas!

  5. I stumbled across your site through gidge’s. I have to tell you that I have never laughed so hard in my life. ROTFLMAO

  6. Damn, my child isn’t old enough to watch much tv, so I had no clue who this chick was, but what the hell was she thinking? God, I hope she was paid a lot!

    Steve from Blue’s Clues. Just check out his website. It really isn’t what you would expect. http://www.steveswebpage.com/
    At all.

  7. I never got the chance to see Melanie’s PBS show, but I bet the other one now on You Tube will get much better ratings!


    I’m laughing so hard over here, I can’t breathe.

  8. Damn. I thought I was actually going to see some Anal Sex.

    Oh well. Close enough. 🙂


  9. What’s even funnier? She actually TOLD them about the video. I shit you not.

    Deep breath.

    ok resume laughing.

  10. cracking up! can’t breathe!

  11. Erin! You know, I’m trying to work here! And you post a title like that. I’m laughing my ass off! No pun intended!

  12. I was about to send this to you when I saw it on the PBS site and did a little googling. Then I saw you had already gotten it.

    Yes, it’s funny. Emily and I got a great scream out of both videos. Will wondered what we were laughing about. I still smile when I think about both.


    This was 7 years ago. And this is PBS, the supposedly “non-corporate” network. I am really disgusted by them firing her. It’s typical corporate knee-jerk s***. Don’t get me wrong, Emily and I both have commented to each other about how annoying Melanie is. Emily asked one night if she was on something. BUT she was obviously very good at what she did, because Will noticed that she was gone. Other parents have answered the same questions from their kids.

    I just don’t think she should be fired for something like that. There was no more “danger” to our kids from her previous “work” than GEORGE CARLIN narrating “Thomas the tank engine.”

    How many of those corporate suits are perfectly innocent? How many of us are? Your Majesty, could you get a job in mainstream broadcasting if you had to explain some of the posts (or pictures) on this blog?

    I really think that it’s sad that people aren’t outraged about this. If we all just sit around and laugh about this and not ask for her return, then we open ourselves to the same thing in the future. Are our blogs worth our jobs?

    I’ve sent an email to the PBS ombudsman. I encourage you all to as well. (http://www.pbs.org/ombudsman/) Her videos were funny. Her voice is grating. Her eyes are strangely alert. Her firing was wrong.

  13. Queen of Spain says:

    Coach makes a really, really good point. The Carlin part is the clincher, too.

    and I can’t talk about it yet, but have an honest to god meeting next week with the squekiest of clean family corps. Despite my blow job post. They still like me.

    I’m wondering what Melanie thinks. I’d love to talk to her.

  14. Queen of Spain says:

    Ok, I wrote PBS and I will post about it later.

    Bring back Annoying Melanie! And Her vibrator!

  15. Oh man, that’s so funny!!

    It’s bad, tho’, because my kids are RIVETED by her. Arianna still watches the “Goodnight Show” (when I let her), but I discovered that Jack could care less about the cartoons….but, when Melanie is on, he gets completely silent and just stares at the tv. Transfixed.

    Then, when they cut to the cartoons, he gets pissed and crawls over the tv and slaps it.

    This will be bad.

    My baby will be in Melanie withdrawels!!

  16. Oh girl, we laughed so hard I nearly cried. I hated her then too and I KNEW she couldn’t be that stupid or innocent LOL.

  17. Yeah, it’s too bad for her, and PBS looks like a bunch of idiots. And it’s not just George Carlin who did off color jokes then did kids material… Robin Williams? Chris Rock? Bob Saget? I suppose the kiddies will never find out about that…

    Then again, Snoop Dogg DID get his part cut from a Muppet movie (it looked funny in the script!) because of his porn production…

  18. Damn, they took down the video – something about “copyright”… 😛

  19. Hello! Good site

  20. Hey thy took down the video, yes, I really wanted to see that! OMG.. hopefully I´ll find it somewhere else.. seems it was really REALLY funny! )))
