Sesame Street Dream

    I've had dreams about the train from that picture-puzzle sketch barreling through the TV, crushing me, and wrecking the room in the process. I've also been attacked by some of the less friendly-looking monsters in nightmares (usually some minor monster whose name only a trivia buff would remember). Sometimes I'd get into arguments with characters (Muppet and human) about not liking the letters/numbers of the day; those dreams occasionally got worse when the things-of-the-day themselves animated and began beating me to a pulp. The worst of those dreams could appear even in the middle of some unrelated, boring dream scene--especially if there happened to be a TV nearby. (Of course, in the dream, changing the channel or turning off the TV became impossible: when I finally became able to control those nightmares, I saw myself smashing the "evil" machine to bits.

    On a lighter note, I've occasionally dreamed of seeing episodes with impossible sponsors (foreign/dead alphabets and weird random numbers, anyone?). Not to mention episodes in which the whole cast hates the script and decides to go on strike right there on the set... *LOL*

    That Newsflash about the Count's cannonballs wound NEVER be made! It would be deemed as too scary for kids. Besides, the Count would NEVER be violent to Kermit! But the one about the Count's grandfather clock I could definitely see as a skit.

    OK, so a couple of nights ago, I had a REALLY odd Sesame Street dream I should tell ya about. Someone (I think it was Sawing14s) uploaded some street scenes from an episode to Youtube; I think it was a 1980s episode. It had Sherlock Hemlock talking to a little lost Anything Muppet boy that was out on a harbor at night. Seemed pretty odd.
    Another clip had this weird animated segment about the letter "E" starring an animated elephant on a white background. The elephant was lecturing about the E, and then I think he annoyed the narrator, whom proceeded to called the elephant "a yakity yakity yak!" And of course, the skit immediately became a total ripoff of the ending of the old "yakity yak" skit about the letter Y, with the elephant grunting off-distance, and then charging toward the screen and causing a huge crash as we see glass shattering!
    The last frame of that video showed the Sesame Street News Flash title card off at a distance. (This was because when I was little, I remember seeing a Sesame Street episode a couple of times that my parents probably taped, and they showed the "Yakity yak" skit, and after the collision, the News Flash logo ZOOMED right up to the camera! :concern: I forget which one of Kermit's special reports it was, and which episode that did that.) I remember commenting on the page what News Flash skit followed that animated segment, and if it was one that wasn't already there for the user to upload it.
    Then when I woke up, the first thing I immediately thought was knowing that the elephant skit I dreamed about never existed, and my mind was just parodying the Yakity Yakity Yak!
    Man, I think I need to cut down on watching the classic Sesame Street clips. :D

    I've had a rather weird one a couple of nights ago:

    It was a sketch from around the early-mid 80s, and it was a game show skit hosted by Guy Smiley. I forgot about the details and objectives of the game, but the contestants in this bit were David, Maria, Bob and Luis as Anything Muppets. And by that, I mean they were painted different colors and had several Muppet features (nose, hair, etc) Maria was blue and seen in a firefighter's outfit, David was green, had gred hair and an orange nose with white number, Bob was yelllow, had a blue sweatshirt and triangular green nose and Luis was orange and in a gray suit, brown hair and purple nose.

    Here's another weird dream I had

    This dream was 4 years ago.I was at school and was eating lunch with the staff and we were watching Sesame Street then "The Letter N" by Nick Normal and the Nickmatics came on and by the time the video started after Nora Nicks introduction I find myself floating backwords outside the School.It was probably the weirdest dream I've had so far.Also what was even weirder was that when the sketch came on Nora was wearing a hat and scarf and was shiverring when she was talking because apparently it was cold inside because you could also here wind blowing.

    Awesome dream, bigjeffy! ;) Just about every single weird dream I've HAD involves Sesame Street in some way or another. Coincidentally, I had a dream LAST NIGHT that involved "The Letter N" (it also involved "Rebel L".) I dreamt that I was in my old high school and some guy was singing "Rebel L" and everyone thought it was hilarious the way he was singing it, so I asked him if he knew "The Letter N". His response was (something like) "No, but it sounds pretty cool!"

    Then there was another one I had a couple weeks ago where the Bellhop (from those '80s cartoons on SS; YOU know which one I'm talkin' about ;)) had to deliver 6 presents to a little girl. I guess he had just about it with being bossed around by the desk clerk because instead of saying "6! 6 presents! 6!" after hearing about what he had to, he said, "Ummm...here you go kid. I'll see what I can do." It turned out the little girl needed the presents for a 6th (I think) birthday party she invited 6 girls to.

    The weirdest SS dream I've ever had, though, was called "The Death of Bert and Ernie". It was a film being shown in my dream on Turner Classic Movies. Ernie was dressed as Ichabod Crane from Sleepy Hollow and leading Bert through a dark forest with a roller coaster. By the time they got off the roller coaster, a Muppet raccoon came out with an army of other Muppet animals and said "OFF WITH HIS HEAD!" and cut off Bert's head; but it wasn't violent and gory with blood and everything. Instead, it was goofy; Bert's head fell off and sprouted feet!

    I once had a dream that I saw a big Sesame Street playset (or maybe it was a game board), featuring all kinds of Sesame Street figures (though the only characters I remember seeing are Biff and Sully).

    Once, I had a dream where Bruno and Bob were playing checkers.

    I also had a dream once where Bruno and Gina were both looking around for some reason as the Monsterpeice Theater theme played (and this is '80s Gina, not her then-modern look... I had this dream back in 1999).

    Well, I did have one dream where I was singing the lyrics to "Danger's No Stranger" and somebody thought I got 'em wrong...haven't had any "Wet Paint" dreams.

    I occasionaly have dreams where there's a different music video for "Wet Paint",but it still goes noramlly,paint splasihing on the backwall,the paint getting on the camera lens at the end,though they seem to go alot longer.Dreams can be weird sometimes.But what are you gonna do lol.

    PinballStewie Well-Known Member

    What are you gonna do?...Go to www.slowwave.com, where people POST their weird dreams and the dreams are written in comic book form. Yes, there are Muppet/Sesame Street related dreams; my fave out of these is "CSI Sesame Street" where Grover had to go to jail (?) There's also one where the letter L is a cop in a dream called "The L Word", and that one's good, too! (wow, so L's a rebel AND a cop, must be a pretty hardcore letter lol! :p) Lemme know how you like it! TTYL!

    Sorry for reviving an old thread, but I had an interesting Sesame dream last night. It was one morning and my brother and I were watching TV. We were flipping through channels, and when we hit Channel 10, it was all staticky but I could hear the Sesame Street News theme beginning. Then the picture cleared and showed the NEWS FLASH title card with announcer. On the bottom right was the PBS Kids Sprout logo! The segment had Kermit the Frog interviewing this big Transformers-like robot. I don't remember it that much, but I DO remember hearing Jim's Kermit voice and figuring it was from the 1980s. I think the robot was computer-animated. It ended with the robot transforming into something that probably embarrassed Kermit, and then this instrumental music played, the kind often used to end Sesame Street Muppet skits. I remember that I never saw it on Muppet Wiki and was about to post info on it on the computer on this forum! But then I glanced up at the clock and noticed the numbers were wrong and I was like, "It's a dream!" Then I woke up, disappointed that I didn't discover a long lost Sesame Street News skit. :p

    Cool, huh?

    Now where was this thread when I was looking for it last night? Didn't think to use the forum's search option.
    Anyway, no SS dreams to share. I do have a slightly related dream, but I'll put that in the other dream thread.
    My question is, what the heck is it with Grover? He is indeed the last muppet one should be scared of, and yet I've thus far seen three Grover-related nightmares mentioned, one of them my own!
    And yaaay, we just love to see old threads updated!

    I was just thinking about this scary SS dream I had back when I was a kid in the 70's.

    I was on top of the roof of 123 Sesame Street. I was watching the characters on the street having a regular episode. One of the kids saw a mysterious door in between Hooper's and the steps. He opened the door and all of a sudden, scary monsters started rushing out making grumbling growling noises. It was all the scary monsters from the first season. Beautiful Day, The green beaked monster, and all the other scary monsters you don't see on today's Sesame Street anymore. Even cartoon monsters. They were scaring away the friendly monsters and chasing and capturing all the adults and kids and anything Muppets.

    Then it showed all the monsters having a wild party playing a guitar and drums. They were dancing and singing wildly and they had all the people locked up in cages and laughing at them.

    I was still watching from above the roof and I was thankful I was safe up there. But then I heard some monster grumbling and I looked over at the roof door and I heard some loud pounding. I realized what was going to happen next. And sure enough, the door busted down and the monsters started charging through and I knew I was in trouble.

    But then a huge blimp flew buy and sprayed a mysterious smoke covering everything in psychedelic colors. When the smoke cleared, I found all the monsters gone. Then I looked down below and saw the monsters were gone too and everyone was free and everything went back to normal.

    Well I think it's good to have someone who grew up with Sesame Street in the early-mid 1970s on this forum! Sometimes it seems many of us here grew up with the 1980s/1990s Sesame Street (like I did, I grew up with the early 1990s version).

    Thank you. Since I grew up on the scary 70's Sesame Street, all of my dreams and nightmares had a lot to do with Sesame Street.

    Another weird SS dream I had was based on the cartoon about a boy who was lost and was in a weird town of buildings and creatures. In my dream, all of the buildings and creatures were having a parade and they were all on wheels. That's right, The Street Clock, The Plastic House, The Animal Fountain, The Lady Hippo, and all the rest were rolling along on wheels. The only difference was that the fish bus was replaced with a scary blue piranha bus. And when the parade entered a football stadium, the Animal Fountain suddenly tipped over and got water all over the place.

    I also remember this SS dream I had when I was a kid. I was playing outside when all of a sudden, I saw one of my dream arch enemies, The Yakity Yakity Yak. But thankfully, he was on the ground asleep. But then, his son came up to me. He was a cute little yak with a kid's voice. He wanted me to play with him and be his friend. I was afraid if I didn't or if I did something wrong, he'd tell Daddy Yak and I'd be in trouble.

    Then later I woke up and went back to sleep again. There was the little yak again walking down the road and a voice shouted, "Are you a yakity yakity yak?" Then the little yak remembered that this father told him that if someone said those 3 Y words, he must charge at the first person he sees and he saw me! I closed my eyes and was hoping a small yak wouldn't do much damage. Then some mild crashing was heard and I woke up.
