Really the one noteworthy thing was the new intro with Ernie, Bert and Horatio (played by Tyler).

It'd be cool if Big Bird actually did come to Gatlinburg, which is a hop, skip, and a jump from where I live.

Thank you so much to Shane for identifying who played Horatio in the opening. If Tyler can do that voice so well, I don't know why he didn't become Murray after Joey left.

Like it’s been said before according to Matt Vogel no one was going to replace Murray because it was such a Joey character.

Murray also has no place anymore, as I'm sure I've said. Joey didn't want him on the street, and they're not doing any format pieces with characters that aren't Elmo, Abby or Cookie.

Legit the only time Murray was used on the street was during the Texas Telly episode. Joey even admitted he wasn’t proud that Murray was in the episode, he said he would prefer to use another character.

Yeah, I was wondering who played Horatio too. About Murray, recall they had the decision not to recast him, though it would be cool if Ty did Murray for a cameo like maybe in an anniversary special or something.
