    I am surprised Bert is getting a featured role instead of Ernie.

    Hmm, this sounds cool I guess. I'm surprised there hasn't been more word on it though... *shrug*

    According to Peter Linz, this special hearkens back to classic Sesame Street. So I for one am excited!

    This sounds so weird that it's normal.

    Sounds like the plot to Barney's Great Adventure.

    Wow! I like what i'm hearing so far. Pretty unusual for Bert to have a major role, especially without Ernie, but i'm intrigued. This definitely a nice surprise.

    I mean, it doesn't say anything about Ernie being absent, but I had to read that plot about eight times to realize how bizarre it was.

    It's a pretty odd plot. But then, last year they had a special where Elisabeth Banks turned into an elephant, so...

    I can assure you Ernie has a role in the special as well.

    I am sure Ernie will but, I am somewhat more surprised that Bert gets top-billing for once instead of Ernie.

    This pretty much sums it all up for me right here. I don't even know what to make of it so far with a seemingly ridiculous title and plot like that . . . but it sounds like we're in for a treat with it, I guess.

    Official description:

    In “When You Wish Upon a Pickle,” a mysterious wish machine appears on Sesame Street and the magical pickle inside starts granting wishes. Before long, the gang learns they need to be careful what they wish for – especially when they find out he’ll only grant one wish per customer! When Elmo wishes to be a grown-up and run Hooper’s Store, he switches bodies with Chris. When Ernie tries to help his friend achieve his dream of becoming a TV meteorologist, Bert ends up trapped in the television, dashing from show to show. Cookie Monster’s wish for more cookies results in more Cookie…Monsters! Abby Cadabby teams up with her favorite storybook detective – brought to life by a wish, of course – to try and solve the mystery of what’s going on in the neighborhood. The adventure continues until an unlikely (and grouchy) hero intervenes!

    I see Oscar is going to be playing a role as well.
