    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

      Does anyone remember this cartoon and poem?

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pLbSongrzEY

      E e
      see me

      Eating a peach
      sitting on my eagle
      chasing a beagle
      to the queen
      on her knee
      under a tree
      by the sea

      She was looking for
      her Easter egg
      having a dream
      about eating
      ice cream
      in the land of steam

      When a baby seal
      tickled her heel
      she let out a squeal
      and woke from her
      dream in time to see
      the eagle and me
      flying away with
      the Easter egg
      over the evening
      sea.

      E e.

        I LOVED SESAME STREET!!! I love the skit bits they did in between, does anyone remember the name of the skit with the claymation where a little ball of clay with big lips is rolling around, and singing I'm gonna getcha, getcha, getcha you?
        And the bit where the A kid would be running down an animated hall, an she would pick a room with the letter of the day on the door, and everything in that room would begin with the letter of the day, my favorite was M.
        Oh, and when Grover was explaining near, and far.
        Of course, yip, yip, yip, yip, yip...
        and Oscars Worm...
        Sigh...

          Forgive me if someone else mentioned this - I didn't read every post. Jim Henson was in a skit where he was dresed in a baker's uniform and would stand at the top of a staircase holding a giant tray filled with cakes or sundaes or pies and He would say "11 chocolate cream pies" or whatever he was holding and every time he would fall down the stairs and everything came crashing down on him so he would be covered in food! I loved those bits!

                Old School Sesame Street will always be better than the version of Sesame Street we see today. IMHO, today's version of Sesame Street is pure crap.

                  It seems that for every Big Bird, Cookie Monster, and Elmo, there are characters who are less appreciated and/or known by the masses. Here are a few characters I feel are underrated.

                  Hoots the Owl

                  He's a real cool cat... er, bird. He's got a great singing voice and can play a mean sax! What more could you want?

                  Two-Headed Monster

                  The only other comedic Muppet duo besides Bert and Ernie. I just love the left head's "beard" and his high-pitched whining and sobbing whenever he gets sad!

                  Mr. Johnson, a.k.a. Fat Blue

                  Your average businessman who's never immune to bad service. I always feel sorry for him whenever he got abused by Grover, but it was also really funny, too!

                  Simon Soundman

                  A man who can imitate sound effects, which proves to be a much bigger problem than expected! Simon is also the brother of Mr. Johnson, and seems to have a lot more patience than him, too!

                  Ruby Monster

                  Here's one character I almost completely forgot about. She is a naive and curious monster who loves experimenting with things. She lasted from around 1988 until 1992, which is a shame because she had so much potential to be a more memorable character.

                  Benny Rabbit

                  He's a rabbit who gets all pissy when people touch him and call him a bunny. He and Oscar would make a great team! :D

                  Forgetful Jones and Clementine

                  This poor guy only got to truely shine in the beloved "Oklahoma" sketch. His girlfriend Clementine was even more neglected, I believe.

                  The Amazing Mumford

                  A magician whose tricks don't always go well, and whose magic words are "A la peanut butter sandwiches!". Love those bushy eyebrows, too! :D

                  The Oinker Sisters

                  Who knew pigs could sing so well? I especially love their Cyndi Lauper-esque outfits in their "New Way to Walk" music video, as shown here!
                  "I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I'm not." -Kurt Cobain

                    Who remembers the infamous "ABC-DEF-GHI" song sung by Big Bird and then later by Elmo and Stinky the Stinkweed Plant?

                          I loved Super Grover and the monsters that didn't talk but they just kind of bounced around and made the same sound over and over. I haven't watched Sesame street in a while because I get annoyed with Elmo and the little fairy monster. Big Bird will always be the best bird ever though. Does anyone remember the book collection they had a grocery stores? I loved those books.

                              If I might ask, what's "old school" about it? Like, what's the difference besides it being from the '70s?
