Seems a bit odd that Jennifer Barnhart is not in the credits,considering she's taking over one of the main characters and is playing a recurring character.
Oh yeah,I forgot about that,Leslie wasn't credited in season 37. But still,that was her first season,Jennifer has been here since 2001 and has been credited for a long time,I wonder why she's just all of a sudden not in the credits.Don't worry that happen to Leslie when Abby debut, also I like Grover's pajamas in this episode.
I understand from the POV that it fit the theme of the episode, but I don't see why they essentially condensed the block format into the half hour. In the half-hours that run on PBS, they a few short inserts and then one long-form bit (shortened EW included). Why is there an EW AND a Smart Cookies in the same episode when they could just drop EW like they already have? It already takes away much more time.Yes, for a season premiere, an edited Elmo's World initially feels really off. However, because Sesame Workshop is now keeping each episode to one central theme that's the primary reason for this choice. With more episodes per season now, filling some of them with Elmo's World (allbeit an older segment) is the route Sesame Workshop has taken verses much more frequent repeats of Elmo the Musical.
However, instead of Elmo's World I would've preferred other "sleep" theme segments. It would've been a great place for a new Ernie and Bert sleeping sketch or even an updated version of Joe Raposo's "Everybody Sleeps".
Yeah. I was wondering about Joey, so were these taped before he left the show?I'm really pleasantly surprised that Sesame's YT page is putting up the episodes for free. Anyway, this new format is okay. I like seeing Muppets setting up the episodes. The new opening and closing song are fun. Nina's a welcome addition. I liked Tyler Bunch's performance as the giant. The B words bit with Tracee Ellis Ross was fun. I liked Ryan Dillon being the bear and Eric Jacobson being the basketball. The Smart Cookie's segment is pretty good. If they make more of these, they better find someone good to replace Joey as Figby. Here's the episode for non-HBO people.
Oh, I'll have to see if I can find that online as well.Did anyone catch the short Tour of Sesame Street preview before the episode? We got to hear some of Stephanie's Prairie Dawn.
So that's been confirmed? I'm guessing you're referring to Grover's Street Safari which will air next week.So excited to here Matt Vogel as Mr. Johnson.
Yep,Susan is definitely in the credits. Also yes,this season was indeed filmed before Joey's departure,note that he plays one of the grouches on the Mucko Polo episode and plays one of the main characters on the Smart Cookies segment.Yeah.

I notice he is still in the credits.
Actually I believe Loretta/Susan was credited, but I can check again.

Speaking of Zoe,i'm hoping despite her demotion we'll still get to see some classic Elmo and Zoe conflict this season.I noticed that too. I mean, Zoe's on recurring status now, but even so, she's one of the main performers in the Smart Cookies bits.
Actually it's Marty R.& Peter L. who plays the grouches.Yep,Susan is definitely in the credits. Also yes,this season was indeed filmed before Joey's departure,note that he plays one of the grouches on the Mucko Polo episode and plays one of the main characters on the Smart Cookies segment.

I noticed that Abby's now refered to as "Elmo's best friend." Admittedly, this is a tad irksome (I know Drtooth is bothered by it) when you think about it, but the thing of it is, they were determined to ensure Abby could achieve the same level of star power Elmo had so that she'd be popular with little girls, and that pretty much tossing Zoe aside.Speaking of Zoe,i'm hoping despite her demotion we'll still get to see some classic Elmo and Zoe conflict this season.
