    Um, why?

    Because back in the Old School/Unpaved era of Sesame Street episodes, the fifth episode of a week was the one that aired on Fridays. And that usually the day/episode used to show off the full closing sequence, complete with the full version of the theme song with harmonica riffs and the casts' credits as well.

    Oh... well... why would they wait until Fridays to air the closing credits? That doesn't make sense.

    Because Friday is the best day of the week!;)

    Well, I can't argue with that!

    *Ahem... For a better non-bias explanation... Friday is the last day of the five-day workweek, before ajurning for the weekend. So Sesame Street used to air the credit crawl with the full show ending on Fridays.
    Hope this helps.

    Still doesn't make sense; they should've had the closing credits at the end of every episode.

    Also, starting with Season 30 (1998) when they began re-making the classic Sesame Street theme and introduced "Elmo's World," the full closing credits would also appear on the season premiere episode. This was done until 2003. I also hope they stop using that 1992 calypso-style music that is always used to introduce a street scene. It, too, is outdated like the current closing credits.

    Well, the Friday closing credits are what they have done sense the beginning of the show. But it's only recently that they stopped doing that. But all CTW shows did thins. MR Rogers did this also.

    Don't ask me... I'm not the producers! :D

    But I guess it's because that if they aired it every day it would have eaten up a lot of time for the episodes.

    Shapes in My Room.

    I don't know why but I think it would be interesting if some well known modern day artist performs Shapes In My Room.

    Wow. That's a really great song parody. Hope they put that out on CD/iTunes. I'd buy it in a second.

    Hopefully the other parodies will be just as good.

    You won't believe this!

    Okay, about the theme music:

    ALL of the theme music in Season 38 will be new. Opening, play-on, closing, credits, etc. None of it is going to be the same. And the theme is mostly going to be computer-animated. And also, listen to this. I was told that Season 38 is the LAST SEASON going to be taped on that set! Apparently, in Season 39, it's going to be completely new. Half real, and half computer-animated. I'm not really sure how it will look, but I know that I'm NOT going to like it. I think it will sort of look like that song "See the Signs." I can't believe this!:cry:

    SO WHAT? What do you mean SO WHAT? This is like one of the biggest changes they've ever made, if not the biggest! There's not even going to be a REAL SET anymore! It appears that after Season 38, the set that we all know and love will be GONE!:cry:

    So... Should we be afraid that this is finally the culmination of the crayon-drawn digitalized takeover of the show? It's funny and a bit scary at the same time, cause it seems that life will be imitating art. For those who don't know what I'm refering to, go and read theprawncracker's fanfictional story The Revenge of Elmo in the FanFic & FanArt section.

    You know, I don't know where you're getting this information, but until I see it my self I have to take it with a grain of salt.

    I'll tell you where I'm getting it. There's this woman who I regularly talk to, Vicki Levy. She works in the Music Department of the show. None of this has actually happened yet, this is just what she was told. And actually, I think half of the set will be real, and half of it will be computer generated. Like I think Hooper's Store will be there, but like the sky, and the stuff in the background will be computer-generated. Something like that. But that's all I know for right now.

    Well, I think the sky on the set had been blue screen for a while sometime so that doesn't sound like that big of a deal.:smirk:
