    I'm actually starting to get a bit annoyed that Abby and Elmo have to be in every episode now.

    I was happy to see the 2-headed Monster be in the cold open. I was worried that the cold open would be limited to the core characters. This gives me hope that even though we may not see Ernie, Bert or Zoe in a street story, they'll at least be in a cold open. I was really happy to see Baby Bear. The best part of the street story was the catchy gospel song. The new Smart Cookies was good. I liked that Figby was in love with the supermodel Giselle Biscotti. Stephanie's performance of her was hilarious.

    Well, again, they're trying to condense the regular Muppet cast down to a "core six," of which Elmo and Abby are a part of . . . but then again, we got to see Baby Bear and Telly today, and I don't believe they're part of the core six.

    For me, this episode was disorienting, if only because it took place almost exclusively in Abby's garden, which is still kind of unfamiliar territory - it kind of makes me wonder if Dutch kids felt like this whenever Sesamstraat made all of the drastic changes to their locale: especially when it was turned into like the inside of a giant toy box instead of a street.

    Other than that, I don't really have anything else to say about this episode: the plot was interesting enough, and it served as a creative way of teaching what each parts of our face do (wonder why nobody thought to say thank you to your ears for hearing things like music and such).

    While I still think the excessive use of chromakey and CGI is unnecessary, I'll admit they're getting better at it: Smart Cookies was very enjoyable . . . but who puts pepper on a danish? A biali, maybe, but a danish?

    I just wanna say even if people have seen the episode online, they should still see it on PBS. Because before the closing song is a fun bit with Cookie Monster and Rosita. I hope to see people post their thoughts on this episode after it airs tomorrow.
