      Grover stars in Prarie Dawn's "Singing in the Rain". That was another favorite of mine when I was a kid.

                    I remember this pinball going through this metal rollercoaste type things through all these obsitcales and at the end it triggerd something to drop a cheery on this little girls white cupcake.This stands out to me more then anything for whtever reason.

                    Also the Erny and burt bedroom scenes were always great. "KEEP THE COOKIES OUT OF THE DAMN BED!!"

                      It's a bunch of buuuuuuuuuuuulllllllll shit!

                      BTW, it's Ernie and Bert, not Erny and Burt.
                      I can't think of anything worth putting as a signature.

                          Correct me if I'm wrong.

                          Is it true Bert and Ernie were gay?


                          I got a late start, I first came to the US when I was 11 and didn't have cabel at first so I watched a number of episodes.

                          Oddly enough, I think I was the only one who didnt think Burt/Ernie were gay.
                          Grover, however.....When I was 11, I was sure that Grover was San Francisco gay pride parade marching, interior decorating, limp wristed homosexual.

                                  The aliens were the best!!!! Mipmipmip uh huh uh huh. Hilarious! My dad even liked them.

                                  The Teeny Little Super Guy!!! The theme song was awesome.

                                  I was an avid watcher of Sesame Street as a child so I could go on and on

                                    Hmm, what do I remember about old-school Sesame Street. The lady that did the sign language, mostly. Oh, and that Big Bird was the mascot for Sesame Street, not Elmo.

                                    I didn't watch Sesame Street much, which is why I probably can't think of much else. I preferred Reading Rainbow to it.
                                    Oddly enough, I think I was the only one who didnt think Burt/Ernie were gay.
                                    You're not the only one. I never did either, and still don't.

                                        I remember some definite things, like when they found out Snuffy was for real, I remember when Elmo was NOTHING, I remember Mister Hooper and when he died, I remember Olivia, and Petey (the dude who breakdanced). I remember Don Piano, Roosevelt Franklin, and other obscure characters. But I also remember odd random things like the little segments they'd have...like one with a kerosene lamp being put together, and the music that played. There was one with dolphins leaping, there was one where they were showing how sugar was made and they were singing "beet beet beet sugarbeet beet sugar beet beeeeet"

                                        There was this segment where there'd be kids leaping and jumping...you'd see thier shadows against a dark blue screen, and then there was one with dots that would count down. There was this tune "everybody sleeps" and I got scared of this one dude they showed who had long scraggly hair and a beard...he was spooky looking. I remember the music that played in the segments, very 70's and 80's. I remember this band that had a guy with viking horns and cows with very 80's hair singing about Danger. Oh and "The Beetles". Very cute in hindsight. I'd love to see/hear some of those tunes and old episodes...hard to now since Noggin flaked out and started showing crap that can be seen on friggin Nick Jr!
                                        I remember "Everybody Sleeps as well. I remember in Season 20, They replaced that bearded man who fell off the chair with some astronauts in a space shuttle.

                                          Does anyone know the name of that sequence with the pinball machine
                                          and having ball going through all these obstacles before reaching
                                          a certain number? (Usually 1-12) I know Family Guy did a spoof of
                                          it.
