    It kinda looks like it. The schedule has been pretty sporadic.

    Any days would be good except for Thursdays, when you really think about it makes my reviews in accurate (in case they were to air new bits when I can't watch it then they repeat it later this season and I see it not knowing it had already aired before)

    Not sure if they will or they won't. Been relying on what Big Bird Fan had to say, but since I didn't get 4124 today (hoping for it airing tomorrow), rully can't say for sure.

    I took the liberty of checking out the schedule for myself today, and here's what we're looking at this week: new episodes will air Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday this week. I'll defintely be able to see Monday, but here are the problems with Wednesday and Thursday: Wednesday I have a dental appointment and I'm not sure how the schedule will work out, and Thursday as you all know is my heavy school day.

    Thanks for the update Snowths... So that'll make it 19 episodes by next Friday, 9/22/2006. And I've only missed out on 4110 and 4124. Rully hoping to catch the little bits I've missed out on or want to watch again when they start repeating the season's episodes.

    D'Snowth's Sesame Review

    Sesame Street Episode Number 4125:

    First Things First: Man I HATE that "you'll never know who you'll meet on Sesame Street" bit!

    Street Scene: Elmo, Telly, and Baby Bear race into Hooper's begging Alan to change the channel so they can watch their favorite show The Alphabet Roadshow; they make it just in time to watch a human dresses in a chicken costume while juggling bowling pins say the alphabet. The host of the show, David Letterguy announces that the roadshow's next stop is Sesame Street, making Elmo, Telly, and Baby Bear absolutely psyched as they come up with strange and unusual ways to say the alphabet. Baby Bear begins to say the alphabet while waiting for his porridge to cool. Telly then says the alphabet while hopping up and down on his pogo stick. Old MacDonald's pigs sing the alphabet like a rock band. Afterwards, they film Elmo saying the alphabet while riding his tricycle thinking it was just as unusual as everyone else. Five minutes later, everyone's watching the completed episode on the air.

    Cultural Reference:
    * Whenever everyone's watching Elmo's part on the new episode of The Alphabet Roadshow, one of Old MacDonald's pigs complains about Elmo having too much screen time. Hmm, apparently we fans of Sesame Street aren't the only ones!

    Goofs and Nitpicks:
    * Goof: The Alphabet Roadshow crew was filming Elmo riding his tricycle from behind the fruit stand which was off to the side of Hooper's, but the finished episode playing on TV shows the exact same angle we were seeing while they were filming him.
    * Nitpick: recurring gag as the cameras used in Elmo's World were of the popular Sesame brand "NoLogo".
    * Nitpick: One of the shows on the Camera Channel's schedule was Candid Camera.

    Long Time, No Sees:
    * Cecile the Singing Ball
    * A very old Zoe (I believe from her first year on the show or so) sings about her name and the three letters that spell it.
    * "Please Say Cheese"

    Classic Bits:
    * The Celery Bunch
    * Elbows and Knees

    New Bits:
    * Healthy Storybook Moment: Hansel and Gretel bump into the witch's house, but they decide they don't want a sweet treat, and decide to eat bread crumbs for a snack instead.
    * The Twiddlebugs take a family photo.

    Elmo's World:
    Yes believe it or not we had another new one today as we explore Elmo's World of Cameras. Elmo askes Mr. Noodle, some kids, and of course a baby how they take pictures with cameras; the French-accent Cheese is constantly popping in anytime someone says "cheese" for the camere but doesn't want his picture taken; Elmo counts how many pictures are taken of him which is six and one picture of the camera; Elmo then askes what can take pictures and what can't; Elmo then watches his friend Alyssia take pictures of her favorite things like her toys, baby sister, pets, et cetera; Elmo then watches the history of the camera on the Camera Channel; Elmo then learns more about cameras by talking to one.

    For Count:
    * I couldn't tell who played David Letterguy
    * The Alphabet Roadshow's director, the witch in Healthy Storybook Moment, I think Mama Twiddlebug, definitely son Twiddlebug, and the camera were played by Fran Brill.
    * I believe Gretel was played by Jennifer Barnhardt this time because it definitely wasn't Noel MacNeil like he previously was, not sure about Hansel though.
    * Papa Twiddlebug and the French-accented block of cheese was played by Joey Mazzarino, but I simply could not tell who did daughter Twiddlebug.

    Overall Rating: Today's new episode was a goody: the street scene was enjoyable, and so was the Healthy Storybook Moment; quite a few old bits today as well which was excellent; I'm just outraged that the new segment with the Twiddlebugs was computer animated and not puppetry; and a decent new Elmo's World; so I give today's new episode: 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10 stars, ah-ah-ah!

    That Elmo's World was from last season. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!... First, the Twiddlebug Skit was like on a digital Movie Camra, then it was all GC, and I notice the mother was using a digital camra to take the femily photo. But what a great episode today!

    Grumble, grumble... Rully hating that we're missing out on these new episodes. Maybe tomorrow a repeat of 4125, though I doubt it.

    The Hansel and Gretel Healthy Story moment... The one that I'll watch, but it's the one I have a major gripe against.
    Elmo's World: Cameras was from last season Snowths. Me thinks it aired in 4090 along with the parody of Chasing the Cheese, unless those were both in 4089 instead.
    Thanks for keeping us updated.

    Hmm, I don't recall ever seeing Elmo's World of Cameras before.

    D'Snowth's Sesame Review

    Sesame Street Episode 4126:

    First Things First: I'm glad I waited until AFTER "you'll never know who you'll meet on Sesame Street" bit was played.

    Street Scene: Zoe is all excited about somebody's birthday, but who's birthday is it? It is Zoe's? Is it Elmo's? Is it Gordon's? Nope, it's Rocco's! Of course Elmo thinks its a stupid idea, but Gordon tells Elmo that if Zoe wants to pretend to have a birthday party for Rocco she can. With that, Gordon and Elmo wish Rocco a happy birthday and are invited to the birthday party; but what do you get a rock for its birthday? Super Grover comes to Elmo's rescue and offers Elmo a pony to give Rocco for its birthday, but the pony has his own business to attend to; Miles comes over and suggest Elmo draw Rocco a picture for its birthday since Elmo's drawings are so "great". So Elmo runs off to draw a picture for Rocco, meanwhile the party is underway; Miles and Gordon put up a large sign that says "Happy Birthday Rocco", while Big Bird, a bunch of neighborhood kids, and Rocco's friends and family: Rocky, Rock Mononoff (sp?), Uncle Rock, Aunt Rock, and Little Rock show p for the party. Rocco receives its presents: a bird-seed bow-tie from Big Bird, a painted sea shell from a little boy, a drawing of Rocco riding a pony from Elmo, and a boulder from Super Grover; as Rocco blows out the candles on its birthday cake (Rocco turned four according to Zoe), Miles provides musical entertain for the party.

    Cultural Reference:
    * Rocco's piano playing friend Rock Mononoff is obviously a reference to the real deal.

    New Bits:
    * Rockin' Robin at the Kiddie Gymnasium (same clip but the song is sung by Luis and Rosita this time)
    * "Filfil" and a little boy do jumping jacks.

    Long Time, No Sees:
    * Imagination (the newer version with Steve's Ernie)

    Global Grover:
    * Grover watches a little girl visit her grandparents' chocolate factory in Argentina.

    For Count:
    * I wasn't paying attention to who played the pony, sorry.
    * If I heard correctly, the little boy "Filfil" was talking to was named Ben.
    * The Three Little Pigs in Global Grover this time were played by Carmen Osbahr, Fran Brill, and I believe Kevin Clash.
    * Jerry Nelson reprised his role as Big Bad.

    Overall Rating: One word: "meh". I give today's new episode 1, 2, 3 stars, ah-ah-ah!

    Sesame Street Episode 4127:A Grouch Dog Who Isn't Really Grouch


    Street Scene: Apparently Oscar has a grouch dog who helps Bob, Elmo, and a chicken. Hey I didn't actually get to see it today, I had stuff to do!:crazy:

    For Count:
    * Sorry

    Overall Rating: I can't even give a rating today, so I give today's new episode ? stars, ah-ah-ah!

    Yeah... We understand if you've got other things on your plate that prevent you from watching the episodes and then posting it here.

    Heck, I got two episodes to post thoughts on in the Season 37 thread, and my affiliate blanked on airing the new episodes that came before it, namely 4124 and 4125.
