Subject: Sesame Street

Hard to believe this show is soon coming up on 40 years! I realize it's best days are far behind. I was fortunate to see the first episode from November of 1969 a few years back, and it was great!

I watched it back them but I don't know if I saw the very first episode or not. I especially watched it when I was home from school. I remember this girl on the bus who used to always sing the theme song.

You can see the first episode and other old ones on 'Sesame Street: Old School' DVD Vol. 1.  Time will tell if they release other volumes.

There are also lots of clips on YouTube, just type in Sesame Street and you'll come across all kinds of old clips. My favorite is the one with Ernie when he sings I Don't Want to Live on the Moon and also Ernie singing the Rubber Ducky song and The Pinball Song.

Rubber Ducky is a classic.

Other songs I remember:

Who Are the People in Your Neighborhood
One of These Things is Not Like the Other
The Number Song (5, 5, 5 Let's sing a song about 5. How many is 5?-or whatever number)
Manumanum

I remember one time hearing them sing Octopus' Garden on there.  ;D ;D ;D

When I was a little kid, I used to like that one segment with the muppet baby in her highchair.  The lights would darken, a disco ball would drop, and she'd sing this disco song that went: "I'm a baby, ga-ga goo-goo bop-bop" ;D

I think the best ever was the skit with a character named "Fred". Back around 72/73 my son, then about 3 years old, watched it every morning and I remeber this Kyle Wagner type muppet would come on and try to sing ryming stories and would screw-up the punch lines and the kids would fill in the obvious words.

Fred would chant things like this; (This one sticks in my head)

"My name is Fred,
they call me Fred,
when I wake up,
I get out of my....DUHHH!" 

and my son would yell out a punch line...you know what this one is, don't you?

My Mom use to call me "Fred" when I was little and I think she named me after this skit. I don't really remember it except I think it was a red-black-white cartoon of this tallish clumsy-looking fellow who would chant, "My name is Fred. I go to bed in my head..." or something like that as he would shower and get ready to go out. Am I right?

Anyway, the old Sesame Street rocked. My favorite skit was the Roller Coaster where a red ball would roll down through all these traps and then turn into a cherries at the end.

Best thing about YouTube is that you can find old Sesame Street clips.

I always liked the short films of the "Mad Painter" guy, I'd seen a few clips on YouTube and was going to post one as an example, but I never could find this one until just now, it was my favorite one of all and I swear I haven't seen this since I was like 6 years old, and it made me laugh my ass off.

ELMO is dreadful and so is Mr. Noodle!!!  My niece went through an ELMO phase, which my sister suffered for 18 months, then the kid grew out of it! 

General consensus is Sesame Street "jumped the shark" with Elmo.  They might as well just put Barney up there and get it over with. 

Perhaps Sesame Street is just at the end of its lifespan.  Nothing lasts forever. 

Sesame was controversial among educators right from the start.  Its critics accused the Children's Television Workshop of promoting limited fantasy and short attention span.  Some claimed the segments focusing on letters, numbers, and other elementary subjects lacked meaningful context.  My father was a school curriculum administrator in Boston at the time of Sesame's inception.  He was right up there with the nay-sayers.  The truth about education wonks such as my dad in the late '60s/early '70s is that they were anti-television from the start. They stuck to a dogmatic assertion that television was the "idiot box" and could serve no positive purpose in society. 

I'm more pragmatic. Television was here to stay by the '60s.  Every home was going to have one, and every kid was going to watch it.  Certainly, there were TV refuseniks who forbade sets in the home (again, my dad was one), but they were far too few in number to hinder the television revolution.  In fact, it was so rare for a home not to have a TV that the Boston Globe once interviewed my dad about it!  No, indeed, television would reign supreme.  Question:  Would you rather have your child watching Sesame Street or the Flintstones?  Sure, Sesame wasn't an ideal educational tool; it was never meant to be a child's sole source of learning in the first place.  However, it was staffed by creative programmers whose goal it was to provide some basic education in an entertaining fashion.  I say they succeeded.  They also promoted decent liberal ideals of tolerance, inclusiveness, compromise, and forgiveness.  The cast and guests were racially and culturally diverse, which was still quite novel in 1970. 

Oh, one thing I especially liked about Sesame Street is it wasn't all candyass like Romper Room or Barney.  They demonstrated to children that life could sometimes be hard and quite unfair, and there would not always be a happy ending.  For example, when Big Bird's house burned down or when Mr. Hooper died.  Will Lee (Mr. Hooper) died in 1982.  Rather than hiring a new Mr. Hooper and playing like nothing happened, the cast worked Mr. Hooper's death into the program and discussed how when a person dies he never comes back, and you have to cope with grief.  Sesame did have a magical make-believe world, but they kept gritty reality close by.  I liked that. 

Of course, Children's Television Workshop produced "The Electric Company," which was geared towards older children, and PBS also had "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood."  Mister Rogers, in contrast to Sesame Street, was paced more slowly and focused on a single topic for a longer period.  Not that anything would make the TV refuseniks happy!

Does anyone have that skit where Cookie Monster has a nightmare about cookies?


You mean the one where he had a nightmare on the giant talking "Monster Cookie." I felt so sorry for Cookie Monster. Boy he sure pretty upset about this nightmare. You see, In the sketch, Cookie Monster had decorated a birthday party for who else, Cookie Monster and he ate all the cookies in the box (which was for the birthday party) and there was none left. He felt depressed and took a nap. And dreams about meeting The Monster Cookie. He tells Cookie Monster the sad tale on how he became that way. He used to be a blue monster too. But eating just the cookies and not going on a healthy diet caused him to become a cookie. And boy they both felt terrible in the nightmare. When Cookie Monster was woken from his nightmare, He cried "What a dream. Oh, Very sad!" And then looks at the last cookie, And says "Oh, NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! Me never eat cookies ever again." And then eats healthier food. Such as carrots, fish, and whole wheat bread. And then he eats a cookie and remarks "Well, Maybe sometime a cookie." BTW, This was like an early "Healthy Habits for Life." I remember seeing this sketch in 1992.

Sesame Street debuted in 1969 and my sister (b. 1963) was among the first generation of viewers.  My grandmother thought it would be great if my sister could be one of the guest kids on the show.  The story I heard was she inquired and the show told her you had to sign up your kid before she was born the waiting list was so long.  This might be hyperbole on Grandma's part.  Not sure.  I do know it was an immediate hit with families and helped PBS raise a ton of money from parents!

I used to watch it too.  I was cranky kid, so I identified most with Oscar the Grouch!

Fantastic videos there. Super memories from my screwed up childhood. I undoubtedly missed the 1st episode since I was in school.  (My post graduate astrophysics teacher didn't let us leave class to watch it.

Can't tell you how many times I go around saying, "It's the plumber. I've come to fix the sink." Carlos looks at me as if I have two heads. He does have a clue about it.  :D ;D ;D ;D ;D

I watched Electric Company too so that makes sense! :) I loved Easy Reader (Morgan Freeman).

I tried to explain this one to some girls at work once, and none of them remembered it. They looked at me like I was smoking something!  :D

Big Bird used to always have trouble remembering Mr. Hooper's name, and he almost always called him "Mr. Looper," which used to irritated Mr. Hooper a little bit. But I remember there was at least one time where Big Bird called him "Mr. Pooper, " which is the funniest thing in the world when you're 6 years old.  ;D


Big Bird also appeared on "Hollywood Squares"(and I think Oscar did, too)and would always call Peter Marshall "Mr. Marshmallow."  ;D

This was a good one. There are so many different Sesame Street little 1 minutes pieces that are memorable.
This one has often been in my head for 40 years. Whenever I count to five, I think of this song.
