    Kate McKinnon's awesome! Wonder what she and Big Bird will be getting up to?

    I dunno, but I love when the SNL cast members are on the show (sometimes). Sometimes they're great, other times they aren't given much to work with. So I hope she's used to her full potential.

    Well, it looks like the usual long alphabet sign that we've seen in every version of the song, but we don't actually know for sure if they're redoing the song again. It's very likely that that's what they're doing, but I don't wanna assume anything until it's confirmed.

    Well, it will be great to hear it again. I wonder if they'll rerecord the song, or do a previous recording of BB singing the song from back in the 80s, when Carroll's BB voice was more energetic sounding. Just curious there.

    Here's a neat presentation from TIFF 2017 about how they get the films and animations done nowadays, with some insight into the new format:



    They also give a little info on the next season:
    • A new Cookie Monster segment (yeah, ANOTHER!) about where food comes from
    • The focus is on diversity; season 49 will be about play

    Cool. Does that mean we can get another cast member? Perhaps a Middle Eastern person with headwear?

    Is it me or does this segment and Smart Cookies sound like two halves of that Munchin' Impossible pilot they made back in 2009. Munchin' Impossible had the whole healthy eating, going to a farm to see where food comes from thing, it also had the secret agent aspect like Smart Cookies.

    Wow! CM is getting more of his own segments than Elmo. I can't believe season 48 is coming so soon. Heck, I'm still waiting for season 47 to air on PBS.

    Hmm, judging by this video, it looks like we're getting a new Ms. Noodle:



    Dang man, Mr. Noodle's parents were busy!

    Here's a little bit of info on the new Cookie segment:

    It's called "Cookie Monster's Foodie Truck" and will also feature Gonger from the Furchester Hotel!

    (double post)

    But, the season officially starts November 18th (this year) with a special Thanksgiving episode. No telling if the season will start soon after, or this episode will air in 2017 first and the rest will follow at the beginning of 2018. But, we should get the press kit soon and that'll answer all.

    I know I'm late in the game, but I kind of want to get caught up with Sesame since I don't wanna be sitting around for 10 years waiting for the next Muppet project lol.

    Is there any information/details I need to know about the show before going back into it or any specific episodes I need to watch to get ready for a specific episode/season? Obviously I can't watch all 47 seasons in one day lol.

    Sesame Street has gotten episodic lately, in that episodes just kinda go in whatever order they want without any overarching plot lines and such.

    I'd say keep your eyes on it when it shows on PBS and look at what's on their YouTube channel.

    The new eps are on You Tube? I was looking at PBS kids and I haven't been able to find those, but I do check YT regularly and haven't found those there either. Just a bit confused there.

    No, but there a new clips on YT.

    Oh, okay. Part of me wants to check them out and part of me wants to wait and see the shows in their entirety. Though I feel like I may have a long wait.

    Unfortunately, they don't take requests for their YT channel.
