A so-called “lost” episode of Sesame Street has been made available for viewing online, decades after it was barred from future broadcasts following complaints from parents.
The 1976 episode of the children’s puppet show stars actor Margaret Hamilton, who portrayed The Wicked Witch of the West in The Wizard of Oz.

She is seen reprising the villainous role in the edition of the programme, which originally aired on 10 February 1976.
