No prob. I'm really happy you guys liked it. :)


Never had the toys either Dan....:wink: also, I was more a fan of the live-action Fraggle Rock than the cartoon. (the HBO show on DVD now.) I still love both though!! :)

This isn't exactly related but I thought I'd stick it on the same thread:


Sesame Street Timeline! :) (From the very last episode of Sesame, aired in 2004.)

Ahhhh!

I didn't actually realise that Sesame Street wasn't showing in the US anymore. I feel like digging out my "Sesame Stree Fever" album now!

Like Walt Disney, I admire how Jim Henson, the head of the company, still was fully involved in the quality aspect and performed as Kermit and others.

They really should put out a DVD with all those moments in full. I'd buy that. :)

Sesame Street hasn't ended yet. Last I checked, it's still going. If you'll notice, the very beginning of the clip says that it's from the 35th anniversary special, not from the final episode. And you know what's really sad? The Old School Sesame Street dvds have a disclaimer that says that the episodes from the 70s aren't appropriate for today's kids. Sesame Street! Of all things! How badly are we sheltering our children from real life? How mindwarped are they going to grow up to be? And one of them is eventually going to be President! If we now live in a society where a 30 year old episode of Sesame Street is considered inappropriate, what hope do we have of any of these kids having the capacity to be a real leader? It scares me and it should scare you too. Okay, rant over.

No, I totally get everything you're saying EV. Completely agree.

Apparently: Oscar is too sad and grumpy, Big Bird shouldn't have been hallucinating that he saw Snufflapugus while no one else could (although later on they made it so that everyone could see him :P) Ernie isn't very bright so that's like making fun of dumb people, Gordon shouldn't have asked a random little girl over to his and his wife's house for milk and cookies, Cookie Monster shouldn't overeat the way he does, and in "Monsterpiece Theater" he shouldn't have been holding the pipe because it encourages smoking (although he does eat it). I read that when they re-run MT now they digitally removed the pipe. (!!!)

I'm just glad I'm grown up now and actually got to see the REAL Sesame as a kid. :?

Sesame Street hasn't ended yet. Last I checked, it's still going.
Oh, wow, I guess I misunderstood--I really thought it ended? I thought I read in the YT forum that the last ep made was in 2004? Are they actually still making original eps?

Yes and yes! :)

Cookie Monster is still on that 'diet' and they've added new characters, like Abby Cadabby; a fairy.
