oh my gosh.. i totally forgot he was his invisible friend! I seem to kind of remember the switch over, and they even had a revisit to that when a magical Ukulele turned him invisible for a short while. They need to release some box sets, and the we can just play the old ones over and over again and boycot the new ones. hehehe :D
TOTALLY WRONG! What's wrong with an imaginary friend? Actually, I guess he wasn't imaginary, but it was just a funny situation. I do remember feeling frustrated at times though...maybe that's why they changed it?
I soooo love you now -- and I don't even know you!!
What happened to the Sesame characters who were adults (and acted like them, for Godssake!)? I miss Super Grover and Kermit the Frog ("with your frog-in-the-street report")! How will kids learn to model grown up behavior by watching puppets act like babbies? Spoiled, illiterate babies, at that!
(Excuse, me? What? Did somebody say I am supposed to act like an adult so they can model MY behavior. Aw, schucks.)
The way they have it now, you wouldn't even know that Super Grover and Kermit the Frog were even a part of it... We have ON DEMAND and I try to find the oldest episodes when they put them up, but they're all in the 3000!! I dont see what's wrong with the occasional old school re-run, it'd be new to them.
Super Grover and Kermit were the best. THE BEST. I also remember being very sad when Mr. Hooper died. :-(
By the way, Sam, slave2three is a MOMS Club member in the Seattle area! I told her about MOMS Club and she checked out the local chapter and joined. And get this: Jennifer Kolodny, who used to live in Studio City and was a member of that chapter and the Book Club, moved up there and is now in charge of membership. When slave2three joined, she put me down as how she found out about MOMS Club, Jennifer recognized my name and emailed me in December!
I don't know if it will surprise you or not, but I know this too. Sesame Street made it to the UK, but actually was a bit after my time if that makes sense - I guess it took a while before someone decided that we could poison British childrens minds with the letter "ZEE" ;-)
Oddly though Martha and I sing this occasionally when it comes to mind and have a bit of a chuckle!
