    I have to say that even in the first episode of the season, SS has not done a bad job of showing classic clips from the early 90s. It looks like it's off to a good start. :) Also, I kind of thought it was nice that they re-did the number song from the first season. I mean, it's not as good as the original, but it's still good.

    Hooray for the number song! I was totally happy to hear that. Now, if only they bring back the pinball count song, I'll be in counting paradise!

    :D

    See, that's why I'm not sure how I feel about this episode.
    Some thoughts...

    Pros:
    1 The jokes/references to baseball, those I liked.
    The Seattle Moo-riners? Yes, I can hear the park announcer now.
    Now batting: Ichewro Milkzuki. And in the On-Deck Circle: Adrian Bulltrae.
    2 The bit with the girl learning how to play basketball from her brother, especially when she said he was going to college. Admitted, this bit will get dated soon but I liked.
    Reason why is cause they both had a nice timing effect, what with 2005 MLB Opening Day last night and getting underway in full swing today, and with the conclusion of the 2005 NCAA Men's and Women's college basketball tournaments tonight.
    3 The Global Grover bit might've been a repeat, but I liked the bike segment from the Netherlands.
    4 The parody names of other storybooks in Slimey's library. I'm guessing that The Brat in the Hat was authored by Theodore "Ted" Grouchel?

    Cons:
    1 Don't rully like the dinging bell sound effect they used to switch fromsegment to segment.
    2 The Song of the Number 4 bit. Mixed feelings towards that. Was nice to hear it, but I feel somewhat cheated in that they didn't show the whole bit.

    Surprises:
    1 Liked the Letter of the Day Game Show, was rully great. The other thing I liked was Cookie thinking like a lawyer...
    That little girl's name is Prairie which starts with P.
    Yeah, yeah, but her last name is Dawn which start with D. Plus, she drowsy.
    2 No Journey to Ernie? Not rully bummed since we got an E&B sketch/song anyway.
    3 Hero Guy? Didn't they learn their lesson? At least it gelled OK with the episode, Hero Guy catching the baseball at the Out-of-this-World Series.
    4 No Count's Counting Organ intro? I liked that they just busted out the number clips, reminds me of the old days. But I miss my main numbers man, maybe later in the season.

    Hope this helps and have a good day.

    is there some reason why those idiots choose to remake the original numbers films that the count mentions? while i don't expect the series to cator to the older generation on a daily baisis, in my view if they're going to do something new, don't remake any older segments. i'm sure they would of done just fine showing the older number films. it's not like the youngsters are going to think that's old. they don't know any better.

    i love this new season of sesame street but i wonder that grover still do around the world like the old season. does sesame street will be in live with regis and kelly.

    I wonder if the Count's appearance's are minimized due to Jerry Nelson's retirement. He said that he would still work on Sesame Street, but I don't know. Someone mentioned in another thread that Joey Mazzarino is voicing Herry now, so I don't know what the status is on Nelson's characters. :confused:

    This was a pretty good episode and it showed Grover's Workout Video.By the way,What year was that skit?

    Well,Can't wait for the next episode tommorow. ;) WOO HOO! :excited:

    Special Thanks to MuppetDude for giving everybody a really good episode guide for This Year's(36th)Season for everybody to look at.

    Yeah, I know where you got that implied thought that Joey Mazzarino's voicing Herry. Lemme explain. In Episode 4083, there was a segment with a human kid named Antonio and an SS character. They were talking about the kid's favorite sport and team, the New York Mets. I'm not sure what character it was who talked to that kid. That's why I ask, is/was that Herry? Not sure what character it was but it was definitely voiced by Mazzarino.
    Hope this helps.

    It was Papa Bear talking to the little boy.

    I just found out that Grover's Workout Video is made in 1994.

    Hmmm. I didn't know Papa Bear looked like Herry, but then I haven't seen it, so I guess he was just shown from a distance. I'm hoping Nelson will still voice his characters. He said he would for the Count, and Mumford makes an appearance this season. We'll just have to wait and see.

    Sorry to have confused you guys regarding the bit with Papa Bear in 4083.

    Now then, my thoughts on 4084: The Banana in the Stone.
    The first thing is that they used a lot of their banana-related bits in this episode.
    Highlights.
    1 The main story was OK, dug the King Arthur spoof.
    2 Another parody was the song "Stretch, Wiggle, Yeah!" sung by Oscar for the worms exercises to the tune of "YMCA" by the Village People.
    3 Ling-li auditioning for the Grouch Symphony Orchestra.
    Nitpick.
    4 The song the grouch orchestra played wasn't a grouch version of Beethoven's 9th as they claimed, but rather it was a grouch version of the Blue Danube.

    Tieing into the banana feature of the main story...
    5 They aired the song about "Banana".
    6 Global Grover was a repeat of his trip to Jordan with the basket of banana peels.
    7 Elmo's World was a repeat of the one where the Top Banana comes by to talk about bananas.

    And since the sponsors were J and 9...
    8 They repeated the J Animals Jump animated bit.
    9 The shortened Song of Number intros to the Falling Baker series will be used to start off the block of Number of the Day bits.
    Not sure what'll happen when they have a number higher than 10 as the Number of the Day though.
    10 The Adventures of Trash Gordon was a repeat of the second one with the Muddy Muddons from last season.

    Another highlight to mention was that they showed the old animated bit with Jasper and Julius about finding one's elbows.
    Hope this helps and have a good day.

    So far, so good. I don't know. So far still, I think that season 34 is by far THE BEST season of "The New Sesame Street". I did notice some different things about this season. Like Count, I too dislike the dinging bell music during the transitions. Did any of you noticed Papa Bear's voice sounds a little higher? I also noticed during the closing credits that Peter Linz and Noel MacNeil are back, and Alice Dinnean Vernon has joined the Sesame gang. Joey Mazzarino doing Herry? Okay. I also noticed it looks like they have a new Baby Bear muppet. I also noticed that the empty store front behind Big Bird's nest now has the window painted red with a yellow "K" on it. I still believe Cookie and Prairie should be a couple. I miss Journey to Ernie though. I also noticed there's been no numbers of the day. I also noticed that Slimey now speaks a little more clearly.

    Thanks for the backtrack on the frist two episodes. Since I didn't have PBS on my Dish Network I order it today so I'll get to see SS now. Glad I don't have to ask someone else to record them for me. Oh I can't wait now for this coming epsiode so I can see whats new and whats old. OH this gets me so excited! *jumps around the room*

    Hmmm. I've noticed the change in Papa Bear's voice. I'm glad it wasn't just me that picked that up. I also thought it was good to see Barkley in the scene with Elmo on the tricycle. He hasn't been on the show in a while. That must mean Linda's still around since she's the dog's owner. I hope they both make more appearances this season.

    Maria: I taught Gabi how to catch a ball when she was about your age.

    Funny how that's possible considering Telly knew Gabi when she was a baby. How'd she become older than him all of a sudden?

    Anyway, just thought I'd put in my two cents.
  20. I saw my first glimspe of a Season 36. episode today, and it was pretty good I guess.
