Thursday Thirteen #9: 13 Things I Remember About Sesame Street

*in honor of it's 40th birthday this week. I'm turning 43 in a few months, and was so the target audience when it came out*

OK, so it's been a while since I've done a Thursday 13, and the site actually no longer exists.

Here it is anyway, because it's been over 3 months since my last post, and it is also only the third one for this year.



1. Super Grover, because he's "...cute, too."

2. Ernie's Rubber Duckie, because I can sing that song in the style of Marilyn Monroe and really mess with people's heads.

3. Mr. Hooper's death. Yeah I cried.

4. The opera-singing orange (was that song from Carmen?).

5. When Bob was trying to tell (in sign) Linda that he liked her, and she thought it was odd that he needed to share that he liked spaghetti.

6. The pastry chef that always fell down the stairs.

7. Manah-manah (doo doo doodoodoo) 'Nuff said.

8. When the grownup characters finally took Big bird's word that Snuffie existed, even though they STILL hadn't met him yet. People had become concerned that kids would not be brave enough (due to the prior precedent) to say something if they'd been molested.

9. The Mad Painter.

10. The Count. How could vampires possibly freak this generation out when we were raised on him and on Grandpa Munster? Seriously!

11. I remember watching it in college to wind down from a particularly hard class during freshman year. No one gave me a hard time, and a few people even joined me.

12. Ladybug's Picnic. Earworm. You're welcome.

13. They switched Gordons on us! Well, if the people at Bewitched can switch Darrens... I guess it's ok
