    Although it's not complete, I'm literally sweating from excitement for this season! Right now, there's just descriptions, but not real clips. Bu, here' hoping! I love that The Count will be in an actual parody skit again and that Super Grover will make a new appearance outside a street scene for once! Oh, and Abby's CGI thing is going to be part of the show.

    Thanks! Actually, I like the D Dance and Super K ones. Hee, take that Stupid K diet.
    Not entirely sure how I feel about the Jon & Kate parody... Seems ordinary to me. Same could be said for the Mad Men and SJP fluff piece—does that dang smutsinthecity have to pervade every level of mass media? ! ? !

    Also... Jason Mraz... I'll say it now so Drtooth doesn't have to... Why the actual singer and not a parody caricature Muppet like Jason Graz (Grass) instead?

    Looking forward to Season 40 in less than two months now.
    *Gets ready for the headache of a new batch of characters to add.

    I'm thinking that "Jon & Kate" may not even air, given what happened to the actual family's split-up.

    *Gagh!*

    Oscarfan beat me to the punch! Haha I was just about to post a thread about this too.:D

    But anyways,

    I'm soooo hyped about this season! The parodys look really funny. I'm sooooo looking forward to "D-Dance" the most. Gosh, I'm starting to get goosebumps again, lol.

    :batty:

    You know... now I'm thinking quite the opposite. Why not have these celeb musicians come in and do their own songs completely originally... no parody lyrics. Paul Simon and James Taylor are examples....

    My sister made me watch this a few times... and I like it. This one is TOTALLY gonna have some moms rolling on the floor, even though their kids won't get it. Just be glad Samantha ain't gonna be on it (I can't even tell you what I'm thinking as a joke)

    This season seems very promising with this new material.

    This looks like it's going to be a good year for Sesame Street. It's wonderful that with the way the researchers are still trying their best to make sure that they can give the audience want they want, the show is still as popular as ever, despite immense competition from other children's shows.

    I was reading over the cast bios and it mentions that Elmilio recorded a verion of Sing with a group called Pink Martini.
  9. zns Active Member

    Never knew about that. But anyway, I am really looking forard to see what the show holds in store for us fans as well as America's youth this year. I am especially excited to see the new material that Frank Oz recorded, especially that stuff without his major characters. :insatiable::(:super:

    Hah, I can imagine the Jon&Kate thing:

    Two, two cheating parents!

    Eight, eight bratty kids!

    Thirty-six, yes, THIRTY SIX, television cameras! Ah-ah-ah! :batty:

    Sesame's doing a parody of Apple's well known iPod ads-of course it'll be about the letter D featuring Big Bird, Elmo and Snuffy.

    Now that's my kind of parody-of course I'm a iPod owner.
  12. BIGMuppetFan Member

    Thanks for posting, I am looking forward to season 40, It looks and sound good, I can't wait for the 40th DVD and Book! :)
  13. Drtooth Well-Known Member

    And Seweral Hundred Thousand Dollars per episode and endorsement! AH ah ah ah ah! :batty:
  14. Ilikemuppets New Member

    I guess who ever aid that Miles was gone was right after all! He's be such a part of Sesame street for so long. not! It's weird for Gordon and Susan not to have a son all of a sudden after all these years!

    Anyway, it's really great that Cookie is in so many episodes this season!
  15. Blinky_Fish Member

    Maybe Roosevelt Franklin and Frazzle will make a comeback this year? :halo:
  16. Drtooth Well-Known Member

    As background characters, maybe. I don't see them ever bringing Roosevelt Franklin back long term... Frazzle, maybe... but I can see him similar to his 1990's self... a giant child monster thing.
  17. Oscarfan Well-Known Member

    Clips of the new season are now watchable. I wish I could watch them now! (Stupid school)
  18. theprawncracker Well-Known Member

    AWESOME show clips! The Mad Men parody features Frank Oz, and I really like the new show opening. Very cool! :sing:
  19. Drtooth Well-Known Member

    Okay... I checked out some of the clips...

    Mad Men was great, even though I have no clue what the heck the show is about, outside of the basic premise of advertising execs. Somehow, that's EXACTLY how I'd picture a Muppet Inspector Gadget to look like.

    The "new" theme song (someone's gonna be ticked)... it's the theme song from the last 2 seasons, just with new footage. Pretty cool footage, though... and I think Frank actually did Cookie's voice in the opening here... I just have to hear it again to clarify.


    And finally, Abby's Fairy School doesn't look all that bad. Actually seems kind a cool. Much more interesting than talking about how Birthday Cakes don't Jump. Seems this is more in the vein of Ernie and Bert's great adventures.
  20. The Shoe Fairy Active Member

    The theme song is not the theme from the last two seasons, it is re-arranged. The vocals are the same, but there are different instruments, notably synth-strings at several points I don't think fit the song.
    And if my mind serves me right... Frogging heck. They are using the smaller Zoe. That destroys the continuity of past seasons AND I hate the smaller puppet.:mad:
