Sesame Street Sues Melissa McCarthy

The company behind "Sesame Street" is suing the makers of Melissa McCarthy's upcoming raunchy comedy, "The Happytime Murders," for referencing the popular kids show in its marketing campaign.

The R-rated film follows "two clashing detectives" Melissa McCarthy and her partner, a puppet named Phil Phillips in Los Angeles as they work together "to solve the brutal murders of the former cast of a beloved classic puppet television show," according to its website. 

But, according to CNN, it's not the film's use of profane puppets that "Sesame Street" is upset about. It's the tagline used in the film's marketing campaign -- "No Sesame. All Street."
