    I'm sure it had nothing to do with her not being on SS as much. Plus I doubt they're gonna ban every character for such minor reasons and the only kids will get their way is if the parents are weak enough to give in.

    A special episode, like a Hawaiian Trip, would do the trick.
    i think a special episode wouldn't happen because it would be too expensive.

    Im saying it could, I'm not saying that it dose. I didn't say anything about anybody was being baned. Sometimes mayby parents do give in which may result in a little kid gitting their way...I don't know and what's your point? I was just tyring to be funny. What are you talking about?:confused:

    Anyway, back to the subject!

    Yeah, it would be nice to see Grover and CM together. Especially, since now they have different performers (Eric and David). They could put them together more often, but I really haven't seen it happen much. I'm not too fond of Abby being in the spotlight too much though, because that's sort of how all this Elmo-mania got started. I mean, it's good that she's still around. I'm just hoping they don't overdo it. Rather than overemphasizing newer charactes, they should bring back some old classic characters. I know I say that a lot, but I think it would be a good idea. After all, they brought back Gladys the Cow, played by Jennifer Bernhardt. Guy Smiley had a cameo in a Number of the Day segment and in the 'Ready to Learn' ad, so why not bring him back on a regular basis? Heck, they could even bring back Don Music if he can find another way of expressing his frusteration rather than banging his head. Just a few thoughts I had.

    Um... There have been special episodes these last few seasons.
    Season 34 had the multiple three-part birth of Curly Bear season finale episode.
    Season 35 had the multiple two-part Snuffy's Invisible! episode, triggered by the magical ukulele.
    Season 36 had the multiple two-part Adventures of Little Big Bird season finale episode, caused by The Amazing Mumford's magic trick with the letter M.
    Season 37 had the multiple three-part Marco Jefferson's Adoption episode.
    These may not be cast trip week-long special episodes, but they are special episodes nonetheless, and I very much think there'll be a multiple-part special episode in Season 38 as well.

    Okay, here's another little something I'm curious about: last season we were told that the main theme/curiculum for that season would be geared more towards preparing young children for "big kid school" (or elementary school I guess), however it seemed to me that last season (like season 36 which is now my favorite season for personal reasons) was still mostly centered around exercizing, eating healthy foods, being more active and the like while the subject of school in general was only mentioned in a few episodes like Abby's first day at school (which I STILL haven't been able to see) and Miles and Gabi's graduation... so I'm wondering if the main theme of season 38 once again will be health-oriented?

    Well, Sesame Street is part of Sesame Workshop's big multi-year "Healthy Habits for Life" initiative. So although Season 35's was "all about nutrition and exercise", the concept of promoting the keys of a healthy lifestyle is a big part of what Sesame stands for now (just as much as teaching letters and numbers). They are not just looking at healthy eating and exercise as a "let's focus on it every so many years" type of learning concept – they see it as a daily objective of the show, it is a big objective and it is an important objective. I would expect to see Sesame Street continuing to deal with issues of a healthy lifestyle for many years (probably until the youth "health crisis" in America is "won"). Teaching kids to read, count, deal with feelings, and interact with others has always been a big part of what Sesame Street stood for. Sesame Street is also, now more than ever, striving towards the goal of teaching kids to take care of themselves physically – eat right, exercise, etc. It wasn't ment to be just a one-year thing, it's a significant additional to the learning goals. So season 36 had a lot of health and nutrition stuff and I'm sure season 37 will too.

    Here's my reply...

    Okay, Ick!

    Firstly, if the show were just Abby and Baby Marco, it would really be silly. J/k :halo: I wonder if "Clasics" means just staple characters or they're planning on a random resurgence of some character that hasn't been around in a while. Look at Mumford in that one season (34? I think), and Gladys the Cow. I saw Barkley in what appeared to be a new song featuring Elmo last season.

    The New Elmo's worlds seem odd subjects. How long do you think it's gonna take them to run out? And don't we have (get ready for this one) too many unnescisary violins on TV as it is? Couldn't help myself.

    I will say I am kinda sick of the celebs doing parodies of their own songs. I know Chris Cerf doesn't work their anymore, but we really need to see more Bruce Stringbean/ Beetles type things with Puppet satires of the group.

    What I want to know, are there any great parody segments like this and last year? Law and Order was the best thing I've seen on SS in some time.

    By the quotes I take it you mean the health crisis can never really be won, and it's all phoney paranoia, like I do? I am so sick of this "Fear of a Fat planet" crap. There will ALWAYS be fat people. All this does is make said fat people (myself being one) feel worse about themselves. White guilt, liberal guilt... now we have to have overweight guilt too? Hah ha ha... I know there's a problem in this country, but I honestly think a lot of it has to do with the rich/poor gap and our nations secret depression problem. But if it makes them sleep good at night knowing that beating kids over the head with this is gonna solve anything, I can't complain.

    Anyway, I REALLY REALLY REE-HEEE-HEALLY hope that they get rid of "Get up, it's time to play" and just throw in more muppet and animation segments. They probably won't, but jeez... you don't think it could get worse than JTE or EW and this happens....

    The overweight issue is tricky for me. On one hand, we don't eat very well in this country, neither do we think of the consequences later on. However, all this talk should be about being healthy, not about being skinny and looking good.

    As I've said, it's more than meets the eye when it comes to the "Obesity" epidemic. Firstly, do you know how rediculously small being considered "overweight" is? When I hear "obesity episdemic" I feel that when I walk out the door, EVERYONE I see is gonna be fat. I don't see too many more people being fat now than ever beofre. But then again, it might also be a regional issue. A lot of southern fare has things fried that I don't think are necissarry and they smother some of that in gravy. Not to mention it's also a rich/poor issue. Fatty foods are cheap, and poor people gotta eat too. Then of course, the depressed eaters who just don't care. I'm a recovering one of those.

    But then that begs the question... what if Sesame Street dealt with depression? I mean, it's hard to say there's a lot of misery for 2 year olds out there, but they really need to introduce a character who is usually sad, but not in a comic manner. But very mildly done. It would be a great way to teach kids to be able to talk to someone about their feelings. I think that mental health is just as important as physical.

    With that said, I sure the heck hope that the profits from the TMX dolls help fund this season so we can see more new stuff.
