    What sketches scared you as a kid?

    Back for my biannual visit, heh. Falling into the "wasn't terrifying, but guaranteed to produce unease" category, was this, and the "foghorn" heard in the beginning here.

    What sketches scared you as a kid?

    Much thanks to RedPiggy for sharing the link, and to Dena for the list- imdb discussion and a nightmare fuel page on tvtropes, too? I guess I'm not so surprised (or unique) after all. I'd completely forgotten about the Count's "Bones" song.. but do remember nightmares about skeletons coming...

    Favorite Cookie Monster Sketch

    I loved Cookie Monster in just about anything, but today I've got to say the "Mystery Box" sketch with Kermit is my favorite... "Arrivederci, Frog." :DGENIUS!

    What sketches scared you as a kid?

    Apparently I have been away for so long that the forum software's changed- looks good! Yet I digress... After recently watching the J.E.J. 1-10 count (which I have no memory of seeing as a kid), I had thought to myself "Geez, that ducking out of frame so quickly at the end would've kinda...

    Least likeable Sesame character?

    Back after a long hiatus... yep, Baby Bear was the character that inspired a "You're kidding me, right?"-reaction from me; at the same time, I was well beyond SS's target audience age upon seeing him, so therefore maybe not a totally fair call? The character I feel completely comfortable in...

    Does Your Family Member have a fav. skit?

    I remember asking my mom as a teen what she remembered/liked, and she basically enjoyed the skits/characters that she saw me really get engaged by as a toddler. She paid more attention to the characters than individual skits, but she thought Grover was adorable (natch), and got a big kick out of...

    Bouncing Baby Figs

    You win. I was overcome by the tidal wave of cuteness when I, in my innocence, clicked on your YouTube link. No fair! (scuffscuffscuffscuff...Charlie! I need some figs in a blanket, pronto!")'re not even "Fuzzy and Blue" (or orange) either...

    Darn it, you got me there. You just leave my "cute" button alone, you.... :super:

    True or False

    Arthur Ewing = Marvin Suggs (conceptually speaking)?

    It's a Great Day to Be a Muppet Fan!

    Bouncing Baby Figs

    ...Look, I'm still trying to cope with being exposed to the "Fozmit" picture, let alone attempting to picture Kermit/Piggy progeny. "Bouncing baby figs" is about as far as my poor mind can take it :super:

    What sketches scared you as a kid?

    I've got to say, I never knew the whole "Snuffy" thing would spark this much discussion!

    Anybody remember the old Ernie ragdolls? Knickerbocker?

    I wish I still had mine- Ernie's painted-on face crackled and flaked off too much in the end... poor Bert's arms didn't survive too many years of my rough childhood love either... As a toddler, I used to stare in fascination at the inside of my Bert's head. I was reminded of that by watching...

    What sketches scared you as a kid?

    Yes, I've seen both Mr. Rogers' appearance on SS, and :wisdom:'s appearance on "Mister Roger's Neighborhood"; I know of what you speak. There's no way that Fred would've ever been dismissive of Big Bird; he's only 6! Just to get back on topic, the B&E sketch featuring the repeating...

    Too old for Sesame Street

    Honestly speaking? I blame the Purple Doofy One for much of the progression of children's programming; however, it's worth asking- wouldn't there eventually be the equivalent thereof, as more and more people with less ideals than greed seized upon the idea? It always seems that for every person...
