Sesame Street 40th Anniversary Website

    Sesame Street has launched a new website for the 40th Anniversary. There are video clips, behind the scenes accounts from the writer of the new book, some really cool desktop wallpapers, and the opportunity to vote for the greatest Sesame Street clip of all-time (complete with a fantastic intro by Grover)!

    This is SO cool!

    I am loving these Grover intros. I especially liked his speach about how the next week is going to be 1990's clips. And he sarcastically ended with tired 1990's slang! :super:

    I voted for Don't Know Y. Bring on next week!

    I wonder if there'll be anything spell done regarding the winning clips, besides the fact that they'll win. For example, I wonder if there'll be any kind of special DVD release for the winners or something (there's not enough time for all the winners to be put on the upcoming 40th anniversary set based on these results).

    I didn't really pay attention to whether every clip from the 1990s (found on the site) is included, but it would be great if there were "write-in" votes for relevant clips not nominated.

    I noticed that if you look at the "recently added" bar in the videos that several Grover videos related to voting appear. There are no tags listed, and they don't appear in searches (at least not for Grover).

    I voted for A's Anatomy just because I adore Grover in that so much. But I LOVE Pre-School Musical, Banana Phone, and It Feels Good When You Sing a Song.

    Can't wait for the rest of the clips!

    Last I checked, Pre-School Musical had the most votes.

    Grover totally influenced my vote. I went with 30 second "Surprise" Seemed to have the most classic vibe to it.

    Plus that intor really made me want to give it to a Grover skit.

    This is a cool website and it has some great 40th anniversary features, its fun to watch all the clips and vote on what you like, Grover did a great job hosting! :) Its was nice to see clips that were not Just Elmo, I have not voted yet but I will soon, You Don't have to vote for this one but I would still check out the Christopher Reeve clip, it brings a smile to your Face, and there is no Elmo! ;) :D

    Awesometastic new site! Total pwnage!

    I have to say though I was kind of torn as to which 2000s video to vote for though - quite a few fond memories with a few of them... but ultimately, I had to go with Wayne Brady's song about between, though videos like Grover's 30 second surprise demo, Red Riding Hood Musical Fairytale, and yes even Elmo's tricycle were on my list of possibilities as well.

    Let's not forget that Sesame Workshop is trying to make their website mainly for kids as well as adults. Personally I think they all did an outstanding job on the website, and I don't just mean the 40th anniversary page. :super:

    Page not working on Sesame Street site

    Hello everybodeeee!:super:

    Yeah, I can't access the site either. Maybe they are updating it. I hope so, I enjoyed voting the other day. It will be interesting to see what the final " best of all of everything" clip will be.:D

    Your dear friend,

    Man I can see the website now and I can understand why "Pigeons Cookies and Trash is leading the votes for the '00s videos. :wisdom:

    I mean it's a smart choice in my opinion given the history of those three objects as they're talked about on the show. :super:

    Does anyone know when they change decades to continue the voting? I'm curious to see what we'll have to select from from the 90s - that'll probably be another toughie for me, because that was a decade I grew up in, and I'm sure they'll be some videos that hold special places in my heart.

    I would assume tomorrow for two reasons... One, the site debuted last Tuesday and they're changing it up after a week. Two, the 40th season will debut on a Tuesday... so naturally they'll want to coincide. But... that's just what I assume. :insatiable:

    Are they still following this new every other day, as opposed to everyday broadcasting of the new episodes? Lol, I'm still not used to that. :smirk:

    I kind of miss the old days (for me anyway, har-har) when the new season always kicked off in April... that always made April worth looking forward to (besides maybe Easter when it was in April, lol).
