    Elmo and some friends from Sesame Street are scheduled to be on NBC's Today Show later this morning in celebration of Sesame Street's 35th anniversary.

    Check out the appearance and let us know what you think!

    Yeah, it was a fantastic appearance with a lot of characters: Big Bird, Cookie Monster, Zoe, Elmo and Grover in the featured segment. The history of the show was nice and so were the clips from the upcoming season and Sunday's prime time special.

    Baby Bear, Elmo, Grover, Big Bird and Zoe also appeared on the Today Show plugging the anniversary at different times throughout the second hour. The bits with Grover directing were hilarious. Just some fantastic stuff all around.

    I'm sorry to say I missed the part where Grover was in the control booth. Do you think that since Cookie and Grover were there , that possibly Frank Oz was doing grover?

    Darn. I missed it. Hopefully, I'll remember to catch Count von Count tonight. After all, he hasn't been on Sesame Street in a while, other than the "Number of the Day" segments. It would be good to see him back in the spotlight.

    By the way, in response to FraglettesMom's post, I believe most of the time Eric plays Grover and David Rudman plays Cookie Monster.

    Well, it didn't sound like Frank Oz's Grover, so no.

    Grover was Eric Jacobson and Cookie was David Rudman or someone, correct?

    You may want to watch Today on Saturday morning. They typically reair some of the segments from the week on Saturdays. This happened just a few weeks ago when they reaired the Sesame Street Live appearance.

    Sorry, I didn't know in advance. Actually, we just happened to have the Today Show on and I heard them plugging the segment for the upcoming hour. Went and posted immediately.

    Usually the Sesame and Muppet appearances are scheduled and promoted through TV listings but this one apparently wasn't.

    If you need a copy of it, send me an e-mail and I will try to help you out.

    I was just lucky that I have a radio show to listen to on-line, or I would have missed the tip as well. Because most of the time, we find out that a Muppet will come on "Today" just minutes before they come on.

    Thanks for answering my question about the possibility that Frank Oz may have been behind/under Grover on the Today show . Does Frank Oz ever work on Sesame anymore ? I guess we might find out when we watch the season opener on PBS this Sunday night.
  18. Really, can I have a copy?
