Well over time you will see a number of 'interesting' characters who pass through MC. Im reminded of the Muppets CD-Rom game in where every now and then when youre driving the virtual bus, a grumpy 'cursor' Muppet will walk pass your dirivng view. Now as for Sesame Street is for every age, I'd agree. Sure some of it now seems a bit 'what am I watching?' but thats just the filler...I have always been only concerned with the Muppet contents, and even growing up I hated all the other cartoons or whatever segments, all filler to me. I have not really seen one episode of Sesame Street for years(being its on so early and I cant get in PBS on my tv at all) BUT! I do have Elmopalooza and feel it is one of the greatest Muppet specials in recent time...and also bought Computer Caper...which reaffirms my view that Telly is one of the best Muppets period. Sadly, Sesame Street Muppets are not treated as equals with a lot of Muppet fans...this may have to do with the post Elmo Sesame(ie: since 1996, when Elmo became a household word) but if you tear away the names and all...I think people will see that Telly, Bear, Tutter, Mopatop, etc stand toe to toe with Kermit, Beaker, Pepe, Scooter, etc.
