    Yeah. And the people who build these things claim that it is because if we had the perfect device, there'd be no reason or motive to improve on things (for we'd be content to have things as they are).

    Well people don't always but new things because the older things are broken. There are a number of reasons why people buy new things.
  3. wwfpooh

    wwfpooh New Member

    I know. People may buy new things because they're "in" and because they're the "next big thing".

    Maybe the older things have simply just run there course and are no longer being made.

    wwfpooh New Member

    Perhaps, but I'd like to think not.

    Yeah. After all, Hooper's has been there forever. I'm sure there's no sign of the street losing that.

    Of course. Hooper's is as much a part of the Street as the 123 Street sign, Bird's nest, the apartment complex, or Oscar's trash can!

    my ideas for places that could be on the actual street

    this should be a whole new therad I have ideas for places that could be on the actual street:

    How about a bank - Since SS is supposeed to resemble a real-life street how about having a bank. the concept of being patient could be introduced. ( e.g Zoe could want to go to the plark and play but Gordon could say : sometimes grown-ups have to do things that need to be done first and the bank is important to me , just like you like the park we can go to the park after the bank ) lesson- childern have to wait their turn to go some places They could have a anything Muppet as a teller)

    Doctor's office : check-ups could be talked about again, Zoe could need a shot or Big Big could have a hurt wing ) Muppteers/ producers could make guest appperences as Doctors ( Dr. Coooney, Dr. Nelson , Dr. Brill Susan could reprise her nurse role

    Bowling Alley: counting by tens could be explored , feeling proud ( after knocking pins down) presistence

    Learn a lot School - there are a lot of storyline possibilities here Only this time New places people could be introduced . Principal, (preschoolers may not fully grasp thiis one ) but the principal could show their office ans that they are the leader of the school and they make sure students work and play safely music teacher, Gym , Cafeteria worker , hall minotor

    how abou a nursery ( as in plant care place . Care of plants could be discussed Gina and Elmo could buy a plant for Gordon and Suan's Apartment )

    These are just cool ideas :)

    For this, I could see some of the older Muppets--Bird, Grover, Snuffy, and even Elmo to an extent--looking at past pictures of their younger selves (include flashback sequences). As well, within the nursery, there could be a homage to Muppet Babies (the puppet versions, of course), like a photo of Baby Kermit or simply a MB storybook for older children to read to their younger counterparts.

    Love everyone of these. Now that's what i wouldn't mind seeing. Now i would love all this stuff. Now i really want all this to come now and not later on in life.

    Maybe they could have the character grow up but then that would be to hard to do being that cartoon or even puppet characters don't ever age but i know they could write up something easly.

    these are wonderul ideas yes i was thinking about this not to long ago i mean making it so that it could resemble real life somewhat i mean it seemed that is what they wanted to do on SS at a lot of the time . I really like what u said about the bank i was geting a picture of Big Bird and grover in my mind going in and geting money to spend at the resterant. I also was thinking of telly and baby bear going in and geting money to go get breakfast together ;) that really would have been neat to see that :p

    Doing so would make the characters even more relatable.

    One thing I want to mention that the episode that's scheduled for today is one that's based on Maria, so maybe there will be some mention on whether or not she's still at the Fix-It Shop or wherever else she might be working. On the other hand, the way PBS has been messing with the scheduled time new episodes are supposed to air we might not see that one until October or November.

    Anyway, I liked the ideas that were mentioned before. I think what they need is another 'Around the Corner' set like they had in the 90s. That way they can keep Hooper's and the Fix-It Shop back where they had been. Then the laundromat and the other businesses could be down that way. Something to think about.

    Agreed. Plus, it makes the Street seem more real.
  16. Erine81981

    Erine81981 Well-Known Member

    I agree too Daffy. That way they could have a little more interaction with some of the other reseidents of the show. Have another family living around the corner who has a pet Lion or pet Monster that live with them. I would think that might be cool to see a character or an actor or actress with a Muppet as a roomie or pet living with them.

    It'd be just like the Dorms game being referenced, Kyle! ^_^

    The Fix it Shop wasn't seen at all this year. But there was an episode where Maria was carrying a Toaster, and headed down passed the Laundromat. So they probably moved it to an offscreen area. They'll probably still mention it on the show, but won't show it anymore.

    Let's not makes such assumptions.
