    That so cool and thank you so much! I see then made some changes to the set again! It you'll notice the Veterinarian's Office now says auto repair and now had yellow doors and a lock up over it! Hooper's also looks quite different as well as other slight changes to the set.

    Problem is I don't know what the name of the auto show is? I can't make it out as it is kind of blurry.

    Awesome! Caroll rollerskating in the bird, that made my day. I hope I can do whatever my equivalent of that would be when I get up there.

    what is the planned curriculum this season

    Hello, Ryguy here. I was just looking at some photos of the actual taping process of Sesame and I must admit it looks really cool I've always wondered how they tape it.

    Anyway, I am interested to know what the planned curriculum area is for this upcoming season . And I read about an auto repair shop going in where Gina's vet shop is That seems odd since none of the humans drive cars on the set what is the thinking behind having an auto repair shop ? I'm not againist the idea of it, I'm just wondering . If no one has the scoop yet, that's fine with me .

    Amazing behind the scenes footage. Just amazing to see how it all comes together.

    Anyway, we usually hear news around this time about the new season. Didn't we get the news about last season in January?

    What the...? The only cars I've ever seen driving down Sesame Street are a grouch cab and the Sloppy Jalopy, so why would Gina's vet office get replaced by an auto-repair shop? After having her adopt Marco last season, are they writing Gina off the show or something?

    If you can read it. I don't know if there is a choice to zoom in or not like with my mouse, but It blurry, but you can make out it saying auto repair above the doors here. I can't make out the name, but it might be who runs it? If you also notice, there seems to be a flower bead where the green stair way used to be.

    You can see some changes made to Hooper's in this picture here.

    Also, Molly Shanon on The View the other day said something about Doing a scene with Oscar and Slimey at Sesame's Bug Show Or Bug Shelter or something to that effect.

    I wonder very much the fate of Gina myself? But I don't think she's going anywhere seeing as she just adopted a child. Maybe they just moved the location of her Vet's office. I'm also would like to know the answer as I'm sure a lot of us here are about the the main curriculum focus of next season as well.

    I like the new set. It looks a lot like the one they've used since 1998. And it's good to see Caroll Spinney in the Bird suit once again! Last season, he just mostly did the voice.

    Wowie Kazowie, looks like I'll be VERY busy working on my Sesame Street scale model this fall: I think I've noticed more set changes than William pointed out...

    1. Yes, Gina's office is an auto shop, but also notice there's no staircase to the attic anymore, nor is there that apartment building directly behind it.
    2. The ground in the arbor in general looks different as well.
    3. The apartments in the garden area (between Gina's office and 123), the bottom right window is now missing, and covered by vines, the top middle window now has one of thos metal fire escapes in front of it, while the bottom middle window lost its awning.
    4. The wall of the alley next to Big Bird's nest appears to be lacking the climbing vines.
    5. Looks like Gordon and Susan have blue curtains again.
    6. Yes, Hooper's does look different, but I wish there was a better picture so we can see exactly how much it's been changed.

    Then again, I remember reading from a post last year saying the set was going to be redesigned next season. I guess this is what they meant. But it looks nice though.

    Man, with the new set, involvement from Jim Henson's Creature Shop and Caroll Spinney inside Big Bird once again, this will probably be a great season, despite Elmo's World not going anywhere. :excited:

    Man! Caroll is one talented guy! But, does involvement form the creature show mean were going to get more CG creatures?
  12. wiley207

    wiley207 Active Member

    Maybe, but Henson's Creature Shop might do a better hob than Magnetic Dreams.

    I find it amazing how Caroll Spinney can have Big Bird rollerskate or ride on a unicycle. That truly IS talent. But I believe that Caroll can't ice skate as Big Bird, so he had a double do it on "Christmas Eve on Sesame Street."

    A new human charcther. Sweet! She's even pictured with Big Bird and Snuffy!:excited:

    She runs the laundromat?:confused:

    So there's a laundromat now on Sesame Street? I wonder, a possibly new AtC set? :D

    question about auto repair shop

    One question I have is how will the auto repair shop be used since the humans are rarely seen driving cars ? I bet Tim Allen could run it . How about "Taylor's auto repair " They have Hooper's store (lol ) seriously how do they plan to use the car repair place ?

    Wow, the street's been introducing new characters (muppets and humans) right and left lately.

    But, oh good Lord, please, not a new "Around the Corner" set, PLEASE!
  16. ISNorden

    I didn't mind "Around the Corner" the first time, and wouldn't mind seeing the street re-expanded. But when Gina's vet office is scheduled to disappear, I worry that the Workshop is going to write Gina herself off the show (somehow, I can't see her as an auto mechanic). Hopefully, the Workshop can confirm/deny whether they're getting rid of her!

    Why not? It could happen. Besides 'Snowth, you were a 90's kid yourself, and unless you grew out of SS at the age of 3, chances are you grew up with AtC for the most part.:D
  18. mikebennidict

    mikebennidict New Member

    Why would you even think that
    just because her vet office is gonna be eliminated?

    And it's been mentioned that she's gonna be an auto mechanic.

    I think the SW has more respect for those who work on SS.

    Yes I did, but I didn't particularly care for it, don't really know why, but I just didn't.

    They'll probably have to re-introduce the daycare center and/or draft some character into babysitting Marco, then; if a vet clinic is no place for a kid his age, a car shop seems even less safe. (Besides, I thought the "Adventures of Gina" alternatives to Trash Gordon were cute. It'd be a lot harder to make a good bedtime story out of her new job...)
