I was two when this show started. I was practically raised by the entire gang.

And yes, I cried when Mr. Hooper died.

I cried when Roosevelt Franklin was kicked off.

and as for Linda, well it's rather difficult for a deaf woman to hear an assassin aproach, now isn't it?

Has anyone seen Sesame Street lately? It SUCKS. Totally different than 10 years ago.

I think I saw Natalie Portman dressed up as an elephant on Sesame Street once while I was laying in a hospital bed, but I am not 100% sure.

Anybody else see that?

19, wow. they really stepped things up. when i was a kid, i think they stopped counting at 12. of course it was only in one language back then. unless of course maria was upset with luis. watch out.

Damn, they're getting into advanced math these days. I'm pretty sure they only went to 12 when I watched it in the 70's and early 80's.

Mr. Looper?
 
2007-08-13 09:14:10 PM  
mamagirl, i'm glad i'm not the only one that thinks so.

sesame street is so awful now; they might as well just go ahead and rename it to "elmo's a.d.d.-fueled hyper spastic shiat show" for all the terrible changes they've made.

por jim henson is probably rolling in his grave.

mamagirl: Has anyone seen Sesame Street lately? It SUCKS. Totally different than 10 years ago.

10 years? It hasn't been nearly as good since at least 1987. I watched from 1976 to about 1985, and I remember it being very hip, very cool, psychadelic, and really ahead of its time. Then Elmo came in and farked the whole thing up. There's no way that they could get away with some of the stuff they did in the 70s and 80s today.

Just go to You Tube and look up old classic clips of Seasame Street, you'll see what I mean.

/Bip Bipodatta was the shiat.

Tina Fey.

Was she exposing her decolletage?

Half the reason I watch 30 Rock is on the front of her shirt.

The other half is Tracy Jordan.

Damn you, beat me to the punch by 1 minute 22 seconds! You must've watched it even earlier than me, though, because I remember it having spanish stuff as far back as the mid-70's. I was repeating Spanish words from the show to my mom at age 3 or 4 and getting annoyed when she didn't know what I was saying.

maybe FusiHreindyr wasn't on drugs, but the jury is out on natalie

can't say that I did. when was this?
 
2007-08-13 09:20:10 PM  
binkle, i watched it at that time, too. what's awesome is that, as an adult and nostalgia notwithstanding, i still get a kick out of a lot of those old skits -- some of the muppet show-esque flavored humor came through.

when elmo was first introduced he was depicted as an annoying kid that needed to work on his listening skills and manners. how the farkity fark did he come to be the star of the show? children's tv is increasingly spastic, that's why. a calm, quiet, but still educational show like mr. roger's neighborhood would have no marketability these days.

sad sad sad.

I was born on the exact day that Sesame Street premiered. Nov. 10, 1969. Now I feel old. But, I also feel young, as I now watch it with my 1 year old.

To me, the fact that she doesn't care if people see her act like a goofy little kid just adds to her incredible cuteness

Put Down the Duckie also features half the Schmengies, Itzhak Perleman, Paul Simon, Pete Seger, Edith Prickley and lots more.

I had forgotten they still make this show. I set my DVR for tomorrow's episode just out of curiousity. I'm sure I'll hate it, as Elmo gets on my nerves, and I never have accepted the notion that everyone can see Mr. Snuffaluffagus.

i thought she did that in the new star wars movies.

For a while Noggin would play real old episodes of Sesame Street, like when everyone went to Hawaii (just try to erase the image Mr. Hooper in a bathing suit from your memory).

We have the Sesame Street old school DVD- my kids ask to watch this rather current Sesame Street.

/Nasty Dan worth price of old school DVD by itself.
//Kids watch the Electric Company too.
///..and the Muppet Show DVDS.
////Perhaps I have weird kids.

unchikun: OLD SKOOL FTW!

Dude, Gordon with hair! That's WAY old school. I remember him as bald even in the 70's.

On another note, did they really kick off Roosevelt Franklin? If so, why?

/haven't seen it since the 80's
//had no idea Elmo was the main character now
///upon knowing that, am glad I haven't seen it. he was bad enough as a minor character.
