    And how many kids (without family members in a marching band, at least) are gonna use that word in ordinary conversations? I love the general idea of a "Word on the Street" feature, but some of the word choices are a bit bizarre for a preschoolers' show.

    I prefer the old "soundalike group" parodies too, but the way Sesame Workshop is strapped for funds nowadays, I suspect it might cost less to have the celebrity volunteer a few minutes, instead of building new AMs and sets for each song.

    Yeah but someday when they're older it will pay off. They'll already be familiar with a word that their friends won't be, and people will be impressed. Nevermind the advantages on the SATs, hehe. I think that's the big reason for using "grown up" words. Instead of assuming "kids won't understand", we help them to understand. :)

    Sadly, kids later in life aren't always interested in learning new things. If they haven't heard of it, it's not important. So it's good to introduce these things early on.

    Of course I knew about Fiest's apperance. Of course it took me until now to find out who the heck that actually is! :insatiable:

    Costs less, and brings them more publicity. It's not that I have any problems with celebrity appearances, but other than the first batch (with the hillarious Furry Happy Monsters, which actually had better lyrics than the real one, frankly. And I'm a big REM fan), they have been very self indulgent. This one seems no different.

    If they want a celeb to come down and sing some song parody about numbers, they NEED to get in touch with Weird Al. Now he can REALLY make a parody song fun. Even some of his lesser 1980's works

    Absolutely; the "1-2-3-4" parody looked cute onscreen, but the lyrics are deadly dull. If Sesame Workshop wants songs that are as memorable and educational as "Furry Happy Monsters", they could use help from someone who makes a living writing decent parodies...and someone who doesn't mind doing kid-friendly lyrics.

    I WILL say this. I liked some of the lyrics in "Triangle," even though I really don't like James Blunt's song (and Weird Al's was a superior song anyway). I really like how they worked Euclidian in there.

    I think even the celeb covers of songs are better than the parodies. Though, I still think it's Bip Boppadotta and the Oinker Sister's song, not really Everybody's. In fact, I JUST saw Elmopalooza, and liked all the covers, except Rosies (I don't like her singing voice at all).

    Yeah, I thought that "I Nearly Nissed A Rainbow" was not done justice there.

    What I don't get is why Prairie Dawn is listed as a character in the press kits. She made near 20 appearences last season, but she wasn't listed. But, Curly Bear was, and she only appeared once!

    Seems Sesame Street has it's own channel on youtube. You can't access it, but you can access the videos. And if you're still having trouble watching them on the official site, you can see some of the clips there.

    Here's Murray had a little Lamb

    I dunno... I think these are really cute.

    Looks like it might be a fun season. The new Ernie and Bert show looks interesting too!

    Oh great! Glad that have an official channel on there now!

    Now I'm worried that they might start complaining about all the old clips fans have posted...and getting a lot of users' accounts pulled in the process. :eek:

    I don't think that'll happen. Remember, they got the idea for their video site from YouTube.

    Hmmmn! They had their channel for 2 YEARS! And the only times SS clip uploaders were suspended was over the Noggin logo or various other non-SS related things. Wattamack was banned twice because of the Village People.

    And a LOT of partner videoes from official sources co-exist with the unofficial loaders. Warners has their own page, and yet, people keep uploading Batman cartoons.
