    No, she said that the fire fly appearance was the only time they've shown themselves this seasons. But they both did before the in the shoe episode.

    The 26 episode deal is not a reason to worry--all TV shows are required to have that many episodes most of the time, anyhow--but the fact that the Laundrymat hasn't been mentioned by SW on the Sesame site could mean that it has replaced the Fix-It Shop (just as the Mail-It-Shop did before).

    :o I stand corrected, then. Still, if the laundromat has replaced Maria and Luis' shop (and the set layout suggests that), I do wonder where they're working now: until this season, most of the street scenes involving Maria and Luis showed them at work.

    I'll have to check that article again, but you might be right since the laundromat was there a few seasons before. If they moved that, then maybe they moved the Fix-It Shop. I'll have to check the article when I have more time.

    The laudramat was there a few seasons before? I though that the Mail-It-Shop was.

    The Mail-It-Shop was there a few seasons before. Then, Maria and Luis converted the store back with no explanation. And now, the store could be gone again by the same token.

    I'm sorry. I made a mistake with what I said. I meant to say that the 'laundromat' was on the street before. Just in a different location. I didn't mean to say that it was where the Fix-It Shop used to be during the 'Mail-It Shop' years. Sorry about that.

    And with the laundrymat where the Fix It Shop was, we're not sure if the Shop is still around or if Maria & Luis will have to find some other sort of employment.

    Yeah. Maybe they should have a map of the set at the website for each season so we know what we can expect. Maybe if the laundromat is where the Fix-It Shop used to be, then it's possible the Fix-It Shop is where the old laundromat used to be. Something to think about.

    Right. I mean, they move things around every years, after all.

    Good suggestion about the map--and good point about the laundromat, too. Episodes from earlier seasons showed a laundromat somewhere on the Street, although it wasn't at such a prominent location. Maybe the Fix-It Shop (in the same vein) moved to a cheaper, out-of-the-way part of town; still, it's been a neighborhood institution for almost as long as Hooper's, and I'll definitely miss the place.

    Just as I said earlier. And agreed, the place will be missed if it indeed has gone away.

    It would be too bad if the Fix-it Shop was gone for good, but then again how many still exist in your neighborhood? In keeping up with the times, a Mail-it Shop or a laundromat would be more relevant. As long as Luis and Maria were still there, that's more important than whatever store front they put up in that spot.

    I guess broken toasters and phonographs are remnants of a by-gone era. Dang I'm getting old! :sleep:

    Just like record players, cassete tapes, VHS's, and numerous other devices.

    Don't forget that before the Fix-It-Shop it was a Library that Maria used to work at and sometime Grover would help too.

    Sesame Street Library

    Well i guess if they wanted to they could work on DVD players or Mp3 players or even CD players too.
  16. wwfpooh

    wwfpooh New Member

    I wonder why the library was taken away? People do need them, don't they?
  17. ISNorden

    ISNorden Active Member

    There was a library next to the Fix-It Shop (or was that Hooper's)? in the Season 38 premiere, but I have a feeling it was a one-shot location.

    *nods* As long as people own something that's cheaper to repair than to replace, there's a good reason for the Fix-It Shop to keep existing on Sesame Street.
  19. wwfpooh

    Too bad some people nowadays just buy a new something instead of attempting to fix the old something first.
  20. Erine81981

    Also it's that back in the day things could last forever but know a days things are only ment to last a few years and quite so you'll have to go buy a new one.
