    I think it's been pointed out that they didn't have anymore room for her, so they cut her loose. Which IMHO is a bad mistake, because she was such a rolemodel for deaf children. While were on the subject, whatever happened to Tara?

    They had no room for her? She had been on the show for like 2 thirds of the series run. How can they just cut her like that? She WAS a great role model not just for the deaf but for all children. I understand why Alan is there to run the store (plus he is hilarious and fresh). Why didn't they cut Gina? Atleast Linda has seniority. HUGE mistake to let her go. Can you imagine being Linda and having a regular spot on a show for 20 years and then being told you have to leave because we don't have room for you. Oh, but we are keeping the rest of your fellow castmates who have been around since the early 70s. Blech! Its one thing to cut Ruthie. She wasn't on for that long, but not LINDA!! Okay, I am done ranting...back to the reviews.:o

    The bellhop, is that the same guy who had to carry 8 suitcases up the stairs, and back down again? Or something like that? It might have been the other way around.

    Okay, just saw the episode with Bob's niece. It was great! And that little girl was wonderful. I hope she returns. She was great interacting with the Muppets and appears to be very intellegent. Not as interactive as Linda of course but Linda is a trained actor (and an adult at that too). I miss Linda, but it was great they had a clip of her even if it is a little old. She is so funny in it. She really was/is a wonderful actress with a great sense of humor. Then again, all she does is use her body and face and hands. She doesn't fall into that common actor trap of telling instead of showing. I love that lady!

    Also, someone mentioned 2 number of the days...No. There was only one. The number of the day was 2. The sketch with the Count and Bob's niece was only to teach us how to sign the numbers up to 10. Hope this helps.

    I saw in that episode where Bob was explaining to Telly and Rosita what signlanguage is for they didn't seem to know. Have they already forgotten who Linda was and the signlanguage she used?

    I know. We have all been thinking the same thing. Telly and Rosita both knew Linda and were around each other enough to understand. I know this for sure since I saw the hurricane shows just recently and Linda was helping everyone build the nest and they all sang the "Putting It Together" parody. Telly, Rosita and Elmo were all there too. I think today's episode may have been the only time I have ever seen any of the Muppet characters try signing. In the past I just remember Big Bird or someone talking like normal and Bob or Luis or whoever signing for Linda to understand. Obviously Big Bird can't sign cuz of the way Carroll Spinney needs to operate him (only one wing works) but the rest are somewhat capable. It is just a little awkward because two different people are operating both hands on Telly and Rosita (it actually was pretty funny watching them sign because of this though.) I gotta admit also that this may have been the most educational episode I have seen so far this season. Atleast as far as street story is concerned.

    I know this isn't a new episode anymore, but hey, this is the first time I've seen it...so it's time for D'Snowth's Sesame Reviews!

    Show No. 4096

    Street Scene: Rosita receives a package from her grandma in Mexico. She sent her a picture of her from the local supermarket, and a beautiful Mexican bracelet. Rosita then begins to feel homesick for Mexico, Big Bird then decides to bring Mexico to Sesame Street, so with Luis and Miles's help, the arbor is filled with Mexican food, music, decorations, and a surprise visit from Rosita's grandma. Rosita is so happy, and feels so much better, they all have a party! Oops, I mean, they all have a feista!

    Longtime, No Sees: Mary Monster (as an anything muppet monster), little girl baking sea-shell designed bread, Ernie's Show and Tell with Joey and a picture of his family

    Newbies: Journey to Ernie as Big Bird looks for Ernie behind something that begins with the letter 'B'. Global Grover as Grover watched the making of clay piggy banks in Mexico. Three is My Fav-o-rit Number stop motion film, Elmo's World of Skin

    New Characters: Book (Martin P. Robinson)

    The street scene was rather short, but it was one of my favorites. The opening sequence was hilarious as Rosita talked about Mexican food, as she and her family dined on Chinese food. Funniest lines: the letter B said, "Hey Big Bird, let me tell you about the birds and the bees!", and a lizard asked Elmo "Can you play "Rainbow Connection"? It was also nice to have a new Elmo's World segment! I give this episode a 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8.5!

    This isn't another new episode, but again, I never saw this one before, so here's another D'Snowth's Sesame Review!

    Show No. 4097

    Street Scene: Zoe needs to find a rock-sitter for Rocco, while she goes to swimming class. Zoe doesn't want Elmo as a rock-sitter because he's so mean to Rocco, and she doesn't want Gina because she's so busy, so she hires Telly. Telly agrees, but isn't too sure exactly how to rock-sit. Zoe tells him that Rocco likes rock-music and rock-stories. Elmo tries to discourage Telly "Rocco's just a rock!", but Telly wants to do a good job, and after hearing Baby Bear talk about Goldilocks being invited to lunch, gave him the idea to tell the story of "Goldi-rock and Baby Bear". Telly runs out of ideas for a rock-song, as Bob and Alan (both as Elvis) sing "Rock Around the Rock". Telly and Rocco seem happy now, as Zoe returns from her swimming class. Telly enjoyed being rock-sitter so much, Zoe hires Telly as rock-sitter on Wednesdays and Fridays.

    Newbies: Rocks are all around us film, Prairie Dawn and Cookie Monster introduce the letter of the day as H as Prairie Dawn accidentally eats the letter of the day showing Cookie Monster that he always eats it, The Count and The Countess introduce the number of the day as 18, Which is alive: Cookie Monster or a rock, The Adventures of Trash Gordon on the Planet Gorgonzolla.

    Long-Time, No-Sees: H is for hat film, "Say Hola Instead of Hello" with Gloria Estaphan, Number of the day animation

    Classic Skits: "And She Says Thank You to Me"

    Well, I think we're all just about sick of all these Rocco episodes, so this episode wasn't all that great, except for Bob and Alan's Elvis bit. And I enjoyed seeing (and hearing) Jim Henson's Ernie. Prairie Dawn's impression of Cookie Monster was also hilarious, especially when he asked her "Is that voice coming from YOU?!". For some strange reason, I was predicting we'd have a new Elmo's World segment (something like "Elmo's World of Rock"), but that didn't happen. So, I give this episode a 1-2-3-4-4.5

    Good review. Yeah, to me this street story wasn't all too exciting except for Alan and Bob dressed as Greasers. It seems to me that Alan and Bob have become good buddies. This episode is way to similar to the other babysitting street story with Telly and Baby Bear trying out for the job of Dorothy's fish sitter. Just boring. And the rock thing is fun to an extent but sometimes it is overdone in my opinion. Because its a rock, unlike the whole imaginary Snuffy stuff where things actually happened.
    Also, Prairie's Cookie Monster impression was classic. It is always fun to see her get all ruffled.
    Your reviews are great. I can't wait to get my own computer back from the shop so I can try and work on my site. And your reviews can have a nice little home there. Here's hopin'!

    Good point BEAR, I mean for two years in a row they did a "Mrs. Chicken thinks Rocco's an egg" storyline, in two different ways: 1. upfront, 2. Elmo and Zoe were circus performers looking for the missing Rocco. I think Elmo is going overboard with his hatred for Rocco, always complaining and whining to Zoe about how Rocco doesn't even live, and that she looks silly talking to a rock, BUT, did he forget about his beloved blanket? It's not alive either, and he talks to it all the time, and he looks silly talking to it, so he shouldn't be treating Zoe like that, for he too is like that.

    I forget, did Elmo do he whole blanket bit before the movie came out?

    Another non-new, but I've never seen before, so here's another review!!!

    Show No. 4098

    Street Scene: Prairie Dawn in the anchor of her own news show, and has a big scoop as Goldilocks (new puppet and new voice) takes over other nursery rhymes. She takes over Little Miss Muffet's tuffet and her curds and whey, and then takes over Little Jack Horner's corner, Christmas pie, and plum. The two nursery rhyme characters are very upset, and run to Mother Goose, only to find Big Bird and Baby Bear. Big Bird and Baby Bear tell them to stand up to Goldilocks, and fight for what's theirs, but that doesn't work. Alan tells them to talk to Goldilocks, and explain how they feel which turns out to work after all, and everyone's nursery rhymes are restored.

    New Characters: Goldilocks (not sure who played her), Little Miss Muffet (possibly Stephanie D'Abruzzo?), and Little Jack Horner (maybe Noel MacNeil?)

    Newbies: Traction Jackson film about playing basketball, Cookie Monster plays the Letter Of The Day Game for the letter Y, unedited version of Journey To Ernie with nursery rhymes.

    Classic Skits: That's the story of Bert's Blanket

    I really liked this episode alot, I just miss the old Goldilocks. Oh well, beggars can't be choosers. And it's not everyday the street scene involves Prairie, so I loved that. So I give this episode a 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10!

    It seems like they grew up Goldilocks. Giving her darker hair, a deeper voice, and made her bigger allowing her to push those poor nursery rhyme kids around.

    Does it seem like Goldilocks never thinks about other people when she does these things to Baby Bear and to others? And how about when she was pigging out on all those curds and whey and pie and then shouting at Alan to bring her more? That girl's gotta learn that the entire world doesn't revolve around her!
