These characters are held to a higher standard than say, Kim Kardashian. While the public cheers on the DUIs, sex tapes, money shots, and all around debauchery of debutwats and child stars, it frowns upon similar behavior from children's entertainers. Go figure.
But lately, there seem to be a lot of drunken, sex-related shenanigans perpetrated by children's entertainers. The guy who did Elmo's voice was accused of having sexual relations with underage teenagers, and now the son of the woman who created Barney was arrested for attempted murder. It's only a matter of time before the next beloved children's character turns out to be hiding a deep, dark secret.
Who's next? Here are our predictions of potential kiddie characters' secrets and scandals that haven't been exposed -- yet.

Probable shocking revelation: Prostitution. A degrading job like Lamb Chop's could lead to some pretty expensive addictions.
