I wonder if there aill be any Broadway stuff, considering the stagehands strike.
I've been wondering the same thing actually. I mean, they might still go on since it's just the actors and there's not much of a stage. Also, not all the shows are closed because of the strike.

Right. With a recorded version of the parade, I can just fast forward through most of that stuff and get to the balloons and other stuff I like. Though I did like the Grinch broadway segment. I wonder which Muppets will be riding on the Sesame Street Float this year anyways? And it's good to see they're bringing out the Kermit the Frog balloon. Maybe they want a classic Muppet to "help" Abby Cadabby in the parade. :smile:

Hey - Who else has a parade with Muppet balloons besides Philly and NYC?:smile:
Well, in the America's Thanksgiving Parade, which is held in downtown Detroit, there's an Elmo ballon. Also, up until 2006,there was a "lifesize" toy train which carried walk- around versions of Elmo, Cookie, Ernie, and Bert, which was usually just an advertisement to promote the Sesame Street stage show coming to town.

I just saw the Sesame Street float on TV. It was awesome! I loved seeing Barkley out there with the cast, and I enjoyed the presence of Hoots the Owl and Bob McGrath. I noticed that Elmo and Hoots were really close together. Maybe Kevin Clash was operating both puppets at the same time? And even though the Count was there, I didn't hear his voice from the singing, so I don't think Jerry Nelson could make it this year. :frown: But it was really cool seeing the REAL Muppets and humans together in a live appearance.

I taped it..... it was nice to have Sesame at the start of the parade. Hoots and barkly there was a treat and Kermit at the end of the parade (with "Rainbow" song playing) what a nice way to open and end the parde with Muppets! :smile:
