    One little problem with adapting "ABC-DEF-GHI" and other US alphabet songs to Plaza Sésamo: the last time I checked, the Spanish alphabet didn't drop Ñ when the 1990s reform passed. It'd throw the rhythm off, true--but you'd think the writers would find a solution that kept the alphabet intact. [wishes the boards had a Rosita smiley...]

    Now, if only some fan in Sweden had that first album of dubbed songs from Svenska Sesam; Cookie Monster sings about the letter K in that version. (Wonder if he ever did the Swedish translation on TV as well?) :insatiable:

    I also managed to find "Somebody Come and Play" and "I don't want to live on the moon" as well.

    Oscarfan's alternative Spanish YT account has a couple others (Who are the People in your Neighborhood... and the Fuzzy and Blue I posted a while back)...

    I find this highly interesting. Much better than just dubbing the songs over. Rerecording them with their own characters... and I really think what they did with C is for Cookie was pretty brilliant.

    I find Germany's rescoring of songs quite fascinating. Why, they even redid If I knew you were coming, I'd've Baked a Cake! I'm too lazy to post it now.

    Ehhhhh... I'd almost love to say it's about counting, since I was able to make out Shesh and Shmone... but that's a stretch.

    How the heck come they made that one fit and actually sound beautiful in places and Pinball Number Count sounds like people in a car that drove off a cliff and is about to crash?

    Edit: Did some translating... all that came up was "minute waltz" which was nothing I couldn't tell you.

    The Grover song is "Still, We Like Each Other".

    I think the funky music in this makes it a lot more tolerable than the original version.
