Did Elmo ride the motorcycle over a large tank with a shark swimming in it?

They've already done skits based on "True Blood" (True Mud) and "The Closer".  Nothing new, just giving parents something to chuckle at while their kids watch.

syberpud: They've already done skits based on "True Blood" (True Mud) and "The Closer".  Nothing new, just giving parents something to chuckle at while their kids watch.


They also had "30 Rocks", in which Liz Lemon (whose head is, of course, a lemon) was preparing for a sketch and needed to know if she had the requisite 30 rocks, so Jack suggested she count them.

And then there was "Law & Order: Special Letters Unit".  Munch and the rest of the detectives were looking for the letter M - and getting rather distracted by the repeated "chunk chunk" noise.

This is nothing new - at. all.  Back in the old days, before I had ever watched Masterpiece Theatre with its then-host, Alistair Cook, Alistair Cookie often hosted Monsterpiece Theatre sketches, complete with smoking jacket and bubble pipe.

has anyone pointed out that this is "nothing new" yet? or provided context for that? I have a hard time if people don't solve problems that are fictional.

Most of the puppeteers are right handed which makes most of the Muppets left handed.

Funny, this is what I was going to say...then I realized that it, indeed, *was* the old days when that was on...

Then I felt old. Very old, as I realized that I watched Sesame Street in its heyday during the early '80's growing up. You know, before it became the Elmo Hour. When Bert and Ernie got more than a 30 second sketch. When Cookie Monster actually, you know, ate farking cookies. When you still heard more than 2 words from Grover. When you heard Oscar the Grouch actually tell some one to "SCRAM!" and sound like he meant it. When you still could hear "Hi-Ho Everyone! This is Kermit the Frog here, reporting live from ..." as a trenchcoated and fedora'd Kermit gave a report on whatever letter or number we were learning that day.

Well that's jut good marketing since most Sons of Anarchy fans are unmarried white trash mothers who think they are dating one of the characters when in reality they are dating a methed-out STD farm.

Daniel Tiger's Neighbourhood cannot begin to fill Mr. Rogers' shoes, but at least it's nice that the characters have continued on, albeit as parents and in cartoon form.

Who'd have thought that Lady Elaine had the jungle fever?   And what the farking fark is with HRH The Crown Prince Tuesday working as a waiter for pocket monies after school?  Take responsibility and get your hands dirty, sure, but in some sort of volunteer service. It's unseemly for him to work in the private sector. Isn't he on the civil list anyway?  They retconned Granpiere to be Daniel Striped Tiger's father, thus Daniel Tiger's grandfather, instead of him being DST's grandfather as he was in the old days.

I won't say the thought hadn't crossed my mind. However, Mr. Rogers is asexual, and typically, that's how I see Tim Gunn. He is one of the most genuinely warm, encouraging, kind, and thoughtful people I see in modern media. And having a depiction of a gay man as a friendly neighbor might not be the worst image to set.

Would the Xian media complain? Of course, it's what they do. I can see them complaining about socialism and what have you in the old Mr. Rogers series were it still ongoing. So, at least put someone who comes close to embodying the qualities that made Mr. Rogers the perfect kids host that he was. Genuine compassion for and desire to teach life lessons to other people.

As if the fundies would tolerate an open and public atheist like NDGT as Mr. Wizard either.  He would be great, though. He's extraordinarily gifted at making the material approachable and interesting, without the off-putting pomposity that Dawkins unfortunately often exudes.

Yeah, I think I have the problem of separating their personal work from what they could be as a TV personality. NDGT embodies the spirit I remember from Mr. Wizard or Bill Nye. They just exude, "Science is fun and relatable! Come with me, I'll show you!"

I'm sure it would be a bridge too far, but it would be great if they had a character: "L"-boy. Red Muppet with one capital letter L on the top of his head, missing the matching one on the other side. Maybe her could wear a big oven mitt on one hand for carrying "L"oaves of "L"eavened bread to his "L"ovely "L"ittle sister LuLu.

I love showing my two year old the old musical numbers from Sesame Street. They all but got rid of that sort of thing on the new format. I don't want to say Sesame Street sucks now but to me it does. I'm sure it's fine for the kids. I'll keep showing my boy the Old School Sesame Street dvds.

My husband walked into the room one day when the show was on.

"What the hell is Prince Tuesday doing working as a waiter?!" I'm so obtuse that I didn't even "get" it until he pointed it out.

The other tiny thing that annoys me about the show is how quickly the cut/end DT's final song. "Because it's you I like." **BAM!** Next segment. It's very abrupt.
