When we heard that American Apparel was collaborating with "Sesame Street," our first reaction was: Eww.

The very idea of pairing one of America's most beloved children's shows with a company known for ads that resemble homemade porn and "pervy madman CEO" Dov Charney -- who has been sued for sexual harassment by his female employees -- was disturbing.

Surprisingly, the line of T-shirts and totes for kids and adults is rather tame -- adorable, even. Still, that doesn't mean we'll let our daughter pair an Elmo T-shirt with pint-size gold lamé leggings.
