    Does anyone remember this cartoon and poem?

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

    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!

    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
    OMG! I loved those monsters - They would repeat sounds they would hear - I remember one where they heard a phone ringing and they would say brrrrrrrrrrrriiiiiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnngggggggg! yep-yep-yep-yep! I can't remember thier names either I used to just call them the yep yep monsters

    No not that I can remember. He provided the voice for that counting skit.

    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!

    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!

    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!

    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?

    I loved the pinball animation.


    I get fond memories of that segment everytime I see the Family Guy episode it was used in.
