    Segments acceptable in 70s/80s, but now no longer the case

    The same can apply to "The Alligator King," when the lyrics mention the fifth son's perfume "smelled like cheap cigars." That segment aired as late as 2006, and the lyric was also included in Episode 3408 when Celina's dance class acted out the segment.

    Arthur - Where is the Show Going?

    This YouTube Poop I made over 10 years ago should answer your question!

    Arthur - Where is the Show Going?

    So recently, I watched "The Rhythm and Roots of Arthur" and I actually enjoyed it, especially D.W.'s "I'm Bored" rap number. It helps that she has a decent boy voice actor here, sounding kind of similar to the original Michael Caloz at times! But what also surprised me was seeing a familiar name...

    Sesame Street Episode 847 with Margaret Hamilton

    Yeah, those stills are pretty neat. When the Witch disguises herself as a harmless old lady by having Margaret Hamilton appear looking like herself, that reminded me SO MUCH of how "The Paul Lynde Halloween Special" started out, with Margaret playing Paul's housekeeper who takes him to visit her...

    Classic Sesame Clips on Youtube

    Yep, SesameWorkshop's YouTube channel is back to normal now. It's Friday, which means it's Elmo Day! :stick_out_tongue:

    Classic Sesame Clips on Youtube

    Oh yes, Lilly Tomlin's voice is so pleasant to listen to, especially when she sings like that. But even when she voices Ms. Frizzle of "The Magic School Bus" it's fun to hear her voicing the character. ("Take chances! Make mistakes! Get messy!")

    Remembering Caroll Spinney (December 26, 1933-December 8, 2019)

    This is another one of those "voice of my childhood" deaths that hit me fairly hard, along with June Foray, Jerry Nelson, Robin Williams and Alan Young. They and Caroll will all leave a great legacy... Tonight I'm going to watch "Christmas Eve on Sesame Street" and "A Muppet Family Christmas" in...

    TV Alert: Sesame Street at Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

    I'm betting Noel MacNeal was operating Big Bird, as he does each year in the parade.

    TV Alert: Sesame Street at Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

    Finally got to see their parade-welcoming number, and it was pretty fun! Anyone else notice Don Music making an appearance? And of course, I was happy to see Julia alongside Herry Monster on the float!

    TV Alert: Sesame Street at Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

    The "Sesame Street" cast and Muppets were NOT the opening number. It was the cast of that Temptations broadway show. At least the "Sesame Street" cast was listed in the opening lineup (while NBC ignores the other floats and balloons, of course!)

    Video: The Muppets promote Facebook Portal in "A Very Muppet Portal Launch"

    Great to see Fozzie's mom again! And that makes another female Muppet that Matt Vogel has performed (he performed Janice at least once before David Rudman became her main performer.) Though of course, it's not that surprising Matt Vogel got the part of Fozzie's mom; he sure has that knack for...

    Sesame Street Episode 847 with Margaret Hamilton

    Yup, that's definitely how Margaret Hamilton's voice sounded around that time. Not that much different from "The Paul Lynde Halloween Special" I've often brought up here.

    Sesame Street Special "Sesame Street's 50th Anniversary Celebration" *Contains Spoilers*

    I'm not surprised Eric Jacobson performed Harvey, given how he can nail the Frank Oz voices. He even had the laugh down! And as for Peter Linz as Captain Vegetable, that's not too surprising, given how much he sounded like Jim Henson.

    Sesame Street Special "Sesame Street's 50th Anniversary Celebration" *Contains Spoilers*

    2009, actually, partly for the show's 40th anniversary in the final new Elmo's World segment, about frogs (of course!)

    Sesame Street Special "Sesame Street's 50th Anniversary Celebration" *Contains Spoilers*

    Ha! The taxi driver saying in an Oscar the Grouch-esque voice "Where to, Mac?" Ooooh, I spotted Captain Vegetable in Hooper's Store! It was especially great to see Linda again amongst the classic cast members! Even Leela returned as well. I also enjoyed seeing Herry Monster and Hoots the Owl as...
