From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Lex Goudsmit (born March 15th, 1913, died December 10, 1999) was an actor, best known for playing grandpa Lex on Sesamstraat, the Dutch version of Sesame Street.

When Goudsmit died, instead of doing an episode dealing with his death, along the lines of Mr. Hooper's death, the producers addressed the issue on the program following Sesamstraat, called (English translation) Youth News. The program aired a compilation of his best appearances on the show, as well as talking about his death.

Lex told producers that he wanted to stay on Sesamstraat even after his death, so the latest scenes he taped were still used on the next season. He was slowly but surely phased out of the show.
