The greatness of Sesame Street

    It had probably been 30 years since I watched Sesame Street, then I had that bouncing little girl in my avatar.

    Now that I am watching Sesame Street either on DVR, On Demand or via Youtube almost every day, I am really starting to appreciate just how freeking cool this show is, and thanks to Youtube, there are a ton of vids to choose from for Lil 93.

    Some of the many great moments I have with her is sitting in the recliner and watching some of the following videos on the laptop.

    Kids or no kids, some of this stuff is pretty darn cool. And I hate to say it, but the guy who does Elmo is fantastic.

    Here a few to get this started. Any other favorites?

    Call me John...

    I would listen to him sing the phone book...


    And Elmo...

    Holly Robinson Peete's father was Gordon on the show.
    I read somewhere in one of the episodes she was playing one of the kids on the street and Gordon asked them some question and she answered it and called him Dad. It never got edited.

    Celebrating their 40th anniversary this year. I have the 30th anniversary book, Unpaved, and it is a treasure trove. Hopefully they will issue an updated version.

    In general, I agree with the premise of this thread. However, Elmo must be stopped.

    Although my kids have outgrown it by now, when they were watching Sesame Street a few years back, a certain tune emerged from the depths of my brain ...

    Think pinball, and the number "12." Totally awesome!

    I haven't watched Sesame Street in many, many years (my kid never seemed to get into it) but this was great.

    I always liked an episode where an opera singer (I don't know who she is) starts out singing this wonderful operatic song ...

    Then she stops and pulls out a cookie.

    And then she starts singing ..." C is for Cookie that's good enough for me ..."

    Always got a kick out of a professional singing a little kid's tune.
