Make Your Own Sesame Segment!

    Hi everybody! I have a new thread for you fans of the Street! Sure Abby's Flying Fairy School and Super Grover 2.0 are fun, but what other segments would you like. Here's my idea.

    Big Bird's Bird World- Seriously Murray has a segment, but Big Bird doesn't? There aren't that many types of schools, but think about how many major species of Birds there are. Big Bird could be seen in different locations with a different bird each time per season.

    Least we forget, Big Bird already had a segment

    Of course, the writers didn't like it and they dumped the segment all together.

    The thing about Murray is, he's in segments because he was created in mind to not actually be on the street in street stories. Joey didn't like the idea of having to awkwardly put Murray into the Triangle of Destiny episode.

    Somehow, I wish Telly had a "what to worry about today" segment that taught kids not to worry about anything.

    That's true, but Journey To Ernie was made years ago, and hasn't been on since. I just think that there could be far less reruns of the Big Bird segment then there are of Abby's Flying Fairy School and Murray has a Little Lamb. I like that idea for a Telly segment though.

    Me? I'd rather NO segments, though. But that's the way the show is now... I just miss the randomness of having smaller sketches featuring different characters all the time. You never know what character you'd see in the old days. Could be a Sherlock Hemlock skit, could be a classic Ernie and Bert... I feel segments take away from that. Though I will say, I prefer the tone of Ernie and Bert's Great Adventures or Abby's Fairy School over, say, Elmo's World. Something that has a storyline...

    I love classic skits! I always find myself wishing for episodes from when I was in my single digits or before. I love Bert and Ernie, and I haven't seen much Sherlock Hermlock. I'll have to look up some sketches with him on Sesame Street.org. later.

    Regarding Murray Has a Little Lamb, it seems that segment has been dropped since last season.

    According to the 40th anniversary book, the writers and producers didn't think Journey to Ernie was "Sesame enough".

    How isn't it Sesame enough?

    We don't know that. They used it last season (al biet no new segments, but still).

    It doesn't seem like it fits in with the show. It comes off very "Blue's Clues".

    I guess in a way it is, but still did definetly make the kids at home think, and the earlier version with clips of the show was pretty funny and Big Bird's "That was fun, but it wasn't Ernie!" Then again I was like 5 0r 6 when it started.

    I didn't know it was used at all last year.

    I swore they were trying to carbon copy Blue's Clues with that segment anyway, and honestly, it's leaps and bounds more watchable. But still, I'm glad the writers protested it. It goes to show that I think the writers have some sort of muzzle on them, but they're breaking free as much as they can.

    For that matter, what the heck happened to Munchin' Impossible? That seemed to have a lot of potential, as did Count TV. I mean, if you're going to shove segments into the show, at least give us one with favorite characters so they're at least guaranteed to be on every so many episodes a season.

    What is Munchin' Impossible?
  14. Oscarfan

    Oscarfan Well-Known Member

    "Muchin' Impossible" is a 5-minute series SW is trying to sell to international markets. It stars Cookie Monster. Look it up on Muppet Wiki to see SW's page for it with preview video.

    I really wish they somehow followed through with that. With all the healthy food eating initiative stuff they jammed down our throats the past few seasons, it had the potential to actually be interesting!

    According to the wiki page, Sesame Workshop, under the guise of Cookie Monster left a cryptic note about the show (Something to the extent of "Me been working for CIA, but don't tell anyone") so it may just be a surprise segment this season yet. Not holding my breath, but cryptic clues are pointing at something.

    Hope we see Count TV in time as well. I really did love seeing the Count host the number segment, though I felt the Organ Count portion was dreadfully dull and repetitive... especially considering what they did with the character a couple seasons later.

    How about a Sesame Street historical society, where one of the newer/younger Muppets goes in to talk to one of the old-timers about some issue, and it always results in the old-timer getting out the Sesame Street photo album or home movies to show an old SS clip that somehow relates to the issue being discussed? Give the young'uns a chance to know David, Olivia, Mr Hooper, Mr Handford, Linda, et al

    That's too much of a stretch for the actual show. it seems more like a one off program if there was ever another Sesame Street Unpaved like program. Besides, I feel classic clips would work better if they were more gently added in without the "classic" label.
  18. Oscarfan

    Oscarfan Well-Known Member

    I agree. I don't really think older segments should be played for "classic" sake. If they have time they need to fill, they should dig in their library to find something.

    I had a thought about an Ernie and Bert role reversal sketch. After consecutive times, Bert finally pops after Ernie humilates him. In every sketch Bert starts tricking Ernie into playing meatball games. Sounded so much better in my head!
