Backward Script

January 19, 1986

Re: Arabic Sesame Street (Outtakes, Jan. 5), someone is pulling your leg.

The Arabic inscription in the cartoon, even if read backward, does not say "Letterman of Adventures The."

The title, when read correctly, is "Adventures (of) Father (of) the Letters."

Backward, it is Letters the Father Adventures. Transliterated, it is Mughaamaraat Abu Alhuruuf.
