It was nice to see Cookie's food truck in a street story. It would have been better if Gonger was there though. I liked how Cookie called the mushrooms umbrella cookies.

According to my cable listings, this week's new episode is last week's. :confused:

So not only has Nina replaced Maria as the street's resident Latina, she's also replaced Susan being a woman who actually knows how to fix cars. And I have to say, the female construction worker AM with the deep man voice in the cold open seemed very much like some kind of throw-away character we'd see in a TMS sketch.

As for the street story itself . . . as I'm sure Oscarfan will probably comment, "meh." Rudy's pretend play and Elmo and Abby eventually joining in was cute enough, I guess; the problem with Cookie's foodie truck turning out that he slipped a cookie into the engine to keep it warm was amusing - actually reminds me of that SEINFELD episode where Jerry discovers Kramer and Newman put some of their groceries under the hood of his car.

Other than that, not much to comment on.

Nothing about it felt rushed, I'll say at least. But also, like, I really didn't care about anything that was happening, so...
