    Sesame Muppets in the Macy's Thanksgiving day.....

    Sesame Muppets in the Macy's Thanksgiving day Parade today. They sang the Street We Live On Song. I just saw it on tv.

    It was mostly the usual suspects (Oscar, Grover, Big Bird, Bert and Ernie, etc). All of the main human actors were there too. Best of all, Barkley made an all-too rare appearance.

    As was mentioned, they sang "The Street We Live On".

    What did they say about Kermit? Who made the balloon. Did they say Disney? I missed it. Are they playing AVMMX on NBC this year?

    Happy Thanksgiving !!

    They mentioned that Kermit was furnished by The Muppets.I didnt hear any mention of the Disney Company.They did however mention the Wizard of Oz special,the stamps and that next year Kermit and the Muppets will be 50 years old.They also said that he was Macy's Goodwill Ambassador and the last balloon in the parade (could this mean it is his last appearance in the parade ?)

    On a side note..I go to the parade every year and get to see the floats being boarded by the celebrities at the start of the parade.Every year the Sesame float has been in the beginning of the parade so I could not see it being boarded.Sure enough, this year, the year I did not go to the parade,the float was towards the end of the parade and I wasn't there...Ugh...Stupid Weather men saying it was going to rain !! I missed out on seeing the character up close ..Ugh !!!

    I saw it was odd that the Kermit balloon was furnished by the Jim Henson Company as well. i guess they still had the balloon from previous years and Disney said OK. He had the place of honor, right before Santa! Way to go! :) :) :)

    Or maybe Henson had a contract with Macys for "X" amount of Parade appearances for the balloon.It was just nice to see him lead in Santa Claus.I figured with today's age,Sponge Bob would be the one to have that honor.

    Sesame Street was great today!!

    Wow. The Sesame float was my most fave of this parade.
    I watched the entire parade, haven't done that for a long time.
    It was cool to see Big Bird and Oscar. Makes me feel good to hear their voices.
    Must mean Carrol Spinney is still doing their voices.
    The announced 'the cast of Sesame Street' and they were there.
    Every year I do the same thing...Look for Bob.
    Bob was there. Bob looks awesome. Bob sounds great.
    I love Bob. Bob's the best. I've loved Bob all my life.
    He was always my fave human on the Street.
    :flirt: woo hoo!

    Yeah, I caught Bob and Maria, Luis and Alan. I wondered why Susan and Gordon didn't show up. I liked that they did "The Street We Live On" song. That was a really good choice.

    I really liked seeing them on the parade as well--that's the reason I flip on the TV on Thanksgiving morning. Three muppety balloons and a great float. Ahhh...

    I was stunned. I like the "Muppets" not Disney. I mean, they had enough to plug their upcoming Non-pixar CGI movie (which will probably tank) so I'm glad they used money to furnish ol' Kermie. Come on... Grover, Big Bird, Kermit.... three Muppet baloons in a Macy's parade. If hit only sponsered a Fraggle baloon in liu of that hack Barney, we'd have had a parade to remember!

    But anyway, am I the only one p o'd by the return of the Ask Jeeve's balloon? I mean, the Pikachu thing made me angry (Nintendo! If you want to fund a balloon, why not Mario?), but is that site even still up? It's terrible. I used it once, and got the wrong answers.
