    I haven't seen today's ep yet, but the listings for my local station say it's the one where Elmo falls in love with Gina. I'm guessing that's what will air today where I live.

    Hurricane is here in NYC

    Channel 13 started the Hurricane episodes today. My wife, my daughter and I were watching it this morning before the little one had to rush off to school and my wife noticed how much younger Miles was, I mentioned to her how they first ran this series in 2001 to help children deal with 9/11 (they figured a big wind knocking down Big Bird's nest would be easier for children to deal with than a couple of bad guys flying planes into it or something). As I was watching it I also noticed that the younger Miles is not as comfortable talking to the Muppet characters as the teenaged Miles is.

    Actually, the hurricane episodes aired in April or May of 2001 as a finale to the SS season at the time. The A&E documentary discussed how this series was planned ahead nearly a year in advance. This initial airing would be months before that horrific event.

    Having said that, the following season did make a special episode indirectly referring to 9/11 about firefighters, with an ending caption in dedication to some fallen firefighters close to the Sesame Workshop people. Caroll Spinney may have touched upon that in his book, but I'm not sure.

    i just saw both espods of the hurican and i have to say this is the SS i rembered.the last one i cried when Bib bird saw his nest was destoryed i really felt sorry for him and was teary eyed. I really wish SS whould get back to the basic from and great storys that we all can relate to i even thought Elmos part in it was good and thats rare for me to even say that. i think they all worked hard on that one show it was really good and puts it out there that bad things do happen but friends can help. very pleased with it

    I was wondering if anyone who is watching these shows could tell me what classic clips are in them. I would really appreciate it. Thanks

    Do they air Sesame Street at different times during the day on your station? If they do, they are usually different episodes. Check it out.

    I forgot to mention, I liked the reference Big Bird made to Mr. Hooper when asking if Gordon packed the picture he drew. Incidentally I think Bird got the name right finally.

    Also, I wonder why Linda wasn't in the first episode with all the other humans but appeared later when building the nest.

    A few of these clips were cut/replaced in the 2004 airings (the ones currently used). Here are the changes:

    "What's the Good Word? A Plan, Plan, Plan song" is replaced with "Picasso Faces Look at Happy" cartoon.

    Show 3977

    "Noodles and Nedd: Leaf Paining" is replaced by "Girl's Day at the Park" animation.

    Show 3978

    "Some Ducklings Splashed at the Water's Edge" was cut.
    "Chinese Acrobats Demonstate 5" and "Stick-Figure cartoon about 5" were replaced by "Penguins Five" (definitely a better change; this film's from 1969!) and "Woman Orders Five Tall Things" cartoon.
    "Lady discovers monumental N" is cut.
    "Large 'N' in Pool" is inserted after "Little Boy wrote a song about his baby sister, Elmo loves it".

    Show 3979

    "Suzy Kabloozy Introduces Prairie Dawn and Big Bad Wolf demonstrating 9" (aka Suzie Kabloozie Judge #9) was cut.
    "Making Paper Airplanes" is replaced with "Kids Dance, Sing, Draw, and Act".

    Show 3980

    "The Martians Discover a 'U'" was cut; it was after "My Friend 'U'".

    Those of you who have seen the first hurricane episode or are going to see it, pay attention to Baby Bear talking to the Dinger while handing out flashlights. He says "Ring a dingle" (or something like that) when communicating to him. It is so funny.

    3 weeks

    I was just watching todays hurricane episode, and I noticed something interesting in Big Birds conversation with Granny. Granny told Big Bird that it would take her three weeks to fly to Sesame Street (and Big Bird was surprised when he heard how long it would take). In Follow That Bird, the truck driver told Big Bird that it would probably take him three weeks to walk to Sesame Street (after Big Bird thought it would take three hours). Could this have been a refference or a coincidence?

    Also, since Granny was offering to fly, does this mean that she can fly while Big Bird can't? I would think that an airplane would get her to Sesame Street faster than three weeks (unless she doesn't live in america).

    There's something I forgot to mention: in show #3978, the first segment was replaced by a "Triangles in the Neighborhood" film.

    i hated it when BB started crying over the fact he didn't know how to build his own next. I can understand why he might be
    a little bit upset and even though he's toung I wish he would of just tried to figure it out without getting all emotional and it would of been a better example to everyone that when you're told to do or try something new, just do it or try to find out how to do so.

    No it was just before he said that. You can barely here it.

    Yes, but that is what little kids do. You be a six year old whose house just got blown away from a nasty hurricane and try to put it back together. He was going to be fine obviously and the grown ups were constantly calming him. Thats just what happens to little kids.

    Also, I just noticed that in the second episode when they pan the street showing everyone cleaning after the hurricane, you can see Grover in the very back of the arbor area picking up things. He is easy to miss but it was so good to see him there.

    Yes, I found the hurricane episode being shown again refreshing for a number of reasons. For one thing, I am currently displaced from my home in the Greater New Orleans area. Secondly, it was great to see them actually show an episode that is out of the current Sesame Street time. Granted, the hurricane episode was not very old, but a lot has changed since that time. When I first turned it on, I thought that they probably made a NEW hurricane epiosde for this recent disaster, but then I noticed that Luis and Maria still had their Fix-It-Shop! I beleive that the episode was originally made as a response to 9-11. It's a great episode because it tackles the serious issue of a disaster, but at the same time, it's not too frightening for children. I can't think of any time a major hurricane hit only one street in New York city, but it works perfectly in the imaginary children's world to understand real life.
