            Yeah, my brother is really into Sesame Street. He collects all the old Sesame street stuff, and I've watched tons of it, listened to records, cds, tapes, the whole 9 yards.

                Funny is how in the end as the wagon goes it sounds like a real bus.

                Also notice the bus says Seattle Transit System. Which is interesting since SS is produced in New York.

                      OK, please help old man Eddie.
                      Was Letterman on Sesame Street or the Electric Company?

                        My guess that it was probably the Electric Company.

                          Thanks ethandaman24.
                          The Electric Company was so long ago, I think I imagined it.

                            This has seriously got to be the longest running thread on the site that's not a sticky.

                              I also remember when Bert and Ernie were going fishing: "Here FISHY FISHY FISHY!!!" Also The Up and Down song with Cookie Monster and Herry Monster.

                                      Raul Julia was also in the show playing a character called Rafael...but that was before my time.

                                        I remember when it taught you more than just spanish with a half hour of Elmo mixed with some more Elmo ... the only thing I like for my kids to watch on PBS right now is Word World , Curious George and Fetch With Ruff Ruffman but I can remember The Pinball Counting , Mr. Hooper , Snuffy being " imaginary " as well as Olivia and the guy that lived in the glass cup and the creatures that lived in Bert and Ernies flower box. Todays Sesame Street just blows chunks compared to the past one and thats not me thats my kids age 19 months , 5 and 6 thinking it too. I bought the Vol 1 Old School Sesame Street and they learned more from those few episodes than any that are on today. Elmo Loves You :=«

                                          Exactly. They shouldn't call it Sesame Street now. It's the Elmo show now.

                                          Anybody remember those two aliens that would go "yep-yep-yep-yep-yep-yep-yep-yep-----uh-huh----uh-huh" Maybe not......I can't remember their names and waht they looked like is kinda blurry in my memory, but....they were one of my favorites.

                                          In trying to watch Sesame Street with my kids in recent years, I remember that there used to be more of a focus on Big Bird, Grover, Kermit, Snuffy, Oscar, and Telly, among others.

                                          What a great show. I honestly would not know how to count to 10 in spanish if not for Sesame Street. lol
