Since today marks the premiere of the latter half of season 36, each day, I'll give a review of what I thought of the new episodes. Starting with today's episode... Show No. 4093 Street Scene: Baby Bear is excited about his first day at Storybook Community Daycare, but is quickly disappointed when Papa Bear announces "I'll pick you up after school". Baby Bear meets his new friends: Jack (the Jack-of-all-trades)(Marty Robinson), Jill, Red Riding Hood, Peter Piper, Hanzel and Gretel (I believe Gretel was done by Jennifer Barnhart), and Mary (Stephanie D'Abruzzo). He also meets his new teacher Mrs Goose, aka Mother Goose, The Mother of All Nursery Rhymes. She teaches them about the letter A, and the number 1. Their activities for the day included making number ones with glitter and construction paper, and Humpty-Dumpty puzzles. Baby Bear doesn't want to continue school, but Papa Bear tells him when he starts to miss the family, to just think about how happy they'll be when the see each other after school. Bear Bear agrees, and announces he's coming back to school! Long Time No-Sees: "At School" Song; "There's a Letter A" cartoon, "We're All Growin'" Song; "Mommy and Me Like to Walk in the Park"; "My One and Only One" cartoon"; The Monumental One by William Wegman's dogs Newbies: New "Spanish Word of the Day" which is abrazo, spanish for hug; new, rather long, "Journey to Ernie", as Big Bird looks for Ernie in "something you ride"; "Just One Strawberry" song; FINALLY, a new "Elmo's World" segment: "Elmo's World of School". Trash Gordon segment: Slimey has a sleepover with two worm friends, while listening to "The Adventures of Trash Gordon on The Planet Penguin". New characters: Snuffy's new friend "Rosland", a combination of Snuffy, and Red Fraggle. , and School House (performed by David Rudman) Classic Skits: Ernie's middle of the night song "That's What Friends Are For" Well, this episode reminded me of my first day in kindergarten, Joey Mazzarino sounds like he's back into Papa Bear practice, actually seeing new Spanish Word of the Day and Journey to Ernie, seeing one of my favorite classic Ernie and Bert skits, first look at Snufflegarden, and FINALLY some new Elmo material, AND the fact that Elmo had nothing to do with the main plot. Kevin Clash sounded slightly out of Elmo practice though. The only thing is, I don't know why they waited till September to do a school-themed show, when school already started in August. Oh well, I give this episode a 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10!
