    Just got word in my MSNBC Newsletter that SS's Elmo and Grover will be appearing on MSNBC's "Deborah Norville Tonight" on Friday, April 16. The show begins at 9pm/8c.

    This TV Appearance ROCKS!!!

    Man! This appearance is so COOL! They've been showing old clips galore! Lots of SS history, and old memories discussed, thanks to Bob. They've given people like Mr. Hooper and Joan Ganz Cooney the respect they deserve. Now THIS is a 35th Anniversary special! Kermit was mentioned, Mr. Hooper has been shown (with audio this time!:concern: ) and even Bill Cosby was shown talking about SS.

    Deborah even mentions the "How They Make Crayons" clip!:D

    I hope everyone else is watching this! I missed maybe the first five seconds or so, but everything I have seen is just wonderful. For you fans of the old street, you'll love this!:):):)

    Seems like I missed a lot. I couldn't tear myself away from a Phillies game so I only saw the second half hour. I did see the clip of the Mr. Hooper death scene and Deborah talking to Bob and Carolyn. Whatelse happened before that? I thought it got a little boring at the end with Grover, Rosita and Elmo interviewing her. Just my opinion.

    Sorry to say this, but I hope Drtooth missed this appearance. If you guys like Trash Gordon from Season 35, then you and especially him will laugh out loud like I did at the appearance of Triangle Bob Trianglepants.
    This was a good special, but I thought that Grover got shoved into the back seat so to speak. There was a memory moment about Ernie and Bert fishing, the crayon clip I remember from when I had better vision about the orange crayon, a short clip from when Elmo and María went to the firehouse from Season 33, a clip from Season 1 where Sally meets Mr. Hooper and Willie the Hot Dog Man, a clip with Reporter Kermit at the beginning, and some insight on the tougher episodes.
    So now we know about the Divorce episode that got cut.
    They also had photos of the cast from Season 1 and how the cast has grown, I'd like someone to help out with just what characters appeared in those photos.
    And there was a great ending where I believe most of the cast was present to say goodbye, caught Oscar saying "Get Lost" at the very end.
    Was a good show, hokay? Have a great weekend.

    Here's what you missed...

    First, they started out with a montage of clips, including bits from "The Street We Live On", including a bit from "Fuzzy and Blue", Bob and Kermit, and Oscar.

    Grover smelled the flowers on the table, which he thought were fake, and mentioned them as "A nice synthetic mixture" (Bob cracked up at that) Grover also compared Sesame Street to the Bermuda Triangle.

    They mentioned Sesame's beginnings, and character's favorite parts. Bob mentioned working with Victor Borge and Grover liked working with Stevie Wonder. (they showed the clip of them from the early days)!:D

    They mentioned Rosita's daily Spanish word (amigo), Global Grover and Elmo's World (briefly, I might add), and talked about best friends. Grover said "If you're not friends with Big Bird, he could squash you like a little ant on the ground, so you better watch out!" And he also said his best friend was.......(drumroll)
    "Kermie baby!":)

    They...mentioned...:)!!!!! Can you believe it???

    Cher talks about SS cheering her up, and Bill Cosby mentions watching James Earl Jones reciting the alphabet, and ("yes!") they showed the clip!!!

    They also showed the clip from the very first Sesame Street, where Gordon is showing Sally around...and (yes!) they showed Mr. Hooper! Bob talked about Maria getting gray hair, dealing with 9/11 topics and Elmo's visit to the fire house. A funny moment is when Deborah asked Grover if he got to slide down the fire pole. Grover said he got rugburn, but he was okay.

    One element you see with Bob is that every time he mentions Mr. Hooper, his voice gets a little shaky. (I think we can all understand that:cry: ).

    They also mentioned some celebrities visiting, including First Lady, Mrs. Bush. They also talked about books a little, and Grover's "Cute Little Book of Baby Animals" was mentioned. Deborah accidentally called Elmo "Elmer" at one point! LOL!

    And that brings us to the second half, which you saw.

    You can tell that Bob really enjoyed this show. I did too!:excited:

    I missed the beginning of the special.

    They also had photos of the cast from Season 1 and how the cast has grown, I'd like someone to help out with just what characters appeared in those photos.

    Yeah. I saw the part the two cast photos. At that part I can see where Elmo can be annoying. When they mentioned the characters in the photo Elmo said something about him being there. Hello! Elmo was not in the show's first season and I didn't see him anywhere in the picture. He did comment on the Orange :grouchy: though. I thought that was interesting.

    By the way, what was up with the divorce episode? Who was involved in that? Hopefully not Maria and Luis or Susan and Gordon.

    I thought the closest they came to talking about divorce was when Kermit interviewed that baby bird who's parents live in two different trees. But I guess that's not what you're referring to.

    Will they reaire it tonight? As in the 17 of april?

    Daffyfan2003: Yeh, when I heard her say Elmo was in the first picure, I wanted to yell at the screen. And the planned divorce episode was to be about the split between Snuffy's parents.

    Erine81981: It re-aired WAY earlier this morning at 2am/1c.

    Does MSNBC have an option for you to buy copies of their shows? I know some of the cable networks do that.
  13. BoyRaisin2

    BoyRaisin2 Active Member

    I don't think so. But they usually have transcripts for their primetime shows on their website a few days after they air.

    About Elmo saying he was in the Season 1 cast picture when clearly he's not... that's why I asked about who was in those two different cast pictures.
    And it was interesting to know about a bit of the behind-the-scene goings-on for a couple episodes like this proposed Divorce episode and Mr. Hooper's death.
    Have a great weekend.

    Its my falut that I didn't read these earlier or I would of know about it. Will it reair some time next week or weekend? I would love to have this speical.
  16. BoyRaisin2

    BoyRaisin2 Active Member

    No, I don't think it will reair. Mainly because it really wasn't a "special" as advertised around here, it was just a regular episode of "Deborah Norville Tonight" which featured SS throughout the hour.

    But who knows, maybe you'll get lucky.

    I just got a chance to see this, and I really liked it! I thought "TriangleBob" was hilarious. I really liked hearing the "grownups" talking about Sesame Street's history and meaning, and all of the stuff with Elmo, Grover, and Rosita was charming. I also loved all the old clips! Hooray!

    I saw the special again and thought it was pretty good! I especially liked the old clips.

    And,there was this one clip of Oscar saying something like "Hey,I'm not trying to be nice here"(or something like that).Was that clip from "The Street We Live On" or was it from one of the Season 35 episodes? :confused:
