Yeah, but that really didn't stop them from celebrating number 35. We haven't had a TV special since 35, and even then it was just an episode of the show done in a retrospective. The first episode of season 40 was supposed to premiere in primetime, but I don't think a single market actually carried it (don't get me into a pledge month/Dr. Wayne Dyer rant). While there are a couple small events, they just aren't seizing the opportunity for something big. Not even in merchandise, which is baffling considering how much of their budget comes from merchandising sales. Though they do have some special figures to make if you have a 3-D printer. Sure, the 50th will be here before you know it, and that's an opportune time to do something special. But they didn't even change the theme song. It still has that embarrassing Homunculus Zoe in the opening.
