I know that alot of you folk have some pretty special memories of Sesame Street. Nancy has a special memory, as told in yesterday’s comment:
I watched Captain Kangaroo on a black and white set.
My kids watched Sesame St.
They’d come to my room when they got up in the mornings. I would tell the oldest to turn on the TV and turn the dial the number that looks like this..I would hold my two fingers up to look like an eleven.
That would hold them for a couple of minutes until I got out there.
And Dmorris also has some special memories of that show:
Hm,if you never watched a single episode of Sesame Street,Mayor, you missed some of the best TV of the 70’s and 80’s.
My kids all watched it,including Nurse Kate,she called it “shesshee street”,and they were well entertained.
When I was a kid, we didn’t have TV, let alone shesshee street, and look what a miserable old bugger I turned out to be!
btw, are Bert and Ernie really dead?
Meanwhile, Cudgel’s stories usually end with the words “and the police weren’t able to identify the remains.”
And that pretty much puts everything into perspective.
