    I think there need to be more of the human child or adult characters again period, I mean what happened to the characters and the humans feeling like a family?
    Not to say they don't try but still...

    They need more humans on the street. Somehow the Muppet fan in me hates to have to say it. They need more extras to begin with, every episode for the past few seasons looks like it takes place at the end of the world and only 5 humans and a bunch of Muppets survived. It's a freaking baron wasteland there.

    We need to get in more adults because, let's face it, Bob, Gordon, Maria, and Luis won't be around forever (but hopefully they got plenty of time left). Plus, the kids grew up and moved away. If said kids or adults are either disabled or not, we still need to fill out the cast a bit more. Someone needs to have some regular kids come on the street somehow. Leela's family should come over for a visit sometime. Maybe have some nephews or nieces stay with her occasionally to meet the giant Yellow Bird.

    A few more street stories have been revealed on this PBS Site (to see them, click "Episodes & Air Times", All Episodes and scroll down). They go from the season premire (4257) to 4268. They're only 1-sentence descriptions though. I glad the "Good Birds Club" one is part of this season! No word yet if that E&B-centric episode is part of this season though, but one can always hope!

    When's that dern press kit gettin' here?!

    I think there should be at least one more principal character that is younger, like 15 or 16, seeing as Gabi is all in college and Miles fell off the face of the Earth. Children are exposed to that age group too, and what they deal with like finding summer jobs (Maybe Leela needs an extra pair of hands in the Laundromat?) and doing homework and stuff. That may be just me, but I think that there is a gap in the age group that is on the show now, aging from little kids (the "extras") all the way to mid-to-late-twenties i.e. Leela and Chris. There are conflicts and storylines that work around more than just those age groups, and especially if the audience has big brothers and sisters that are 15 or 16. Again that may be just me.

    I was browsing Stephanie D'Abruzzo's website and saw on her resume under voice-over she did a character called "Super Fairy" for Abby's Flying Fairy School. It's dated 2011 and a segment involving that character hasn't aired yet, so we know there will be some new AFFS this season (It had better be 44).

    There better be more than 2 new ones anyway. I think AFFS is a GREAT segment.. but there was no call for it to be an every day occurrence.

    Oh Frog! Another segment starring Murray? Not that Murray as a character isn't bad but the entire rest of the show (that's not eaten by Elmo) is already All About Murray. Dare i get my hopes up that the Murray tune-in's are gone? SST has a tendency to create some good bits and pieces but the overall package is so unappealing and you have to wade through an entire bowl of bland cereal to find the prize.

    The tune ins are going to be there, but they will be significantly shorter. The Number of the Day segment (from behind the scenes footage) will go from Murray counting several groups of the same number to Murray announcing lottery numbers. And Ovejita WILL take part. Hopefully other things will be shortened... AFFS especially. The only difference from the new clip I've seen is that the theme song has been remixed slightly. Plus, I really wonder if Murray Had a Little Lamb is still part of the show. That's the deciding factor.

    I'm pretty sure his new segment will incorporated in the tune-ins. In the clips, you can see him introducing Elmo's World and another segment while doing an experiment with cars.

    I don't want to get my hopes up on anything... but notice. He says "Elmo" instead of Elmo's World. Now, I'm sure that useless segment is forcibly glued to the show and all, and expecting it to be gone would be nothing short of asking for the moon... but....

    He did say "Elmo" not Elmo's World.

    I noticed that too; it had me thinking too. Nothing about a new Elmo segment or new Elmo's World episodes are mentioned in the press release though.

    The only Elmo I saw in the release is something about celebrity moments.

    Of course, we didn't have a single new Elmo's world last season, and only one (which was a hold off) the season before that. I want to believe they dumped it for something else Elmo, but sometime tells me if I believe that, I'll be disappointed to see that full frame screened lousy EW theme song and know what's coming.

    Also, I noticed NO mention of Ernie and Bert's Great Adventures. We have quite a few unseen episodes.

    Sure hope they finally add Count TV to the episodes this season.

    But that aside... Cast Iron Cooks/Iron Chef America parody? Instant Win!
