    I think Twiddlebugs is a great idea as an animated series. Around the Corner would be cute, but they may as well have just kept it with Sesame Street. They got rid of it to downsize and simplify.

    From what I heard, Around The Corner was gotten rid of because of the kids being too confused of all the characters that occupied there with an added possibility that Sesame Workshop didn’t have enough funds to keep it around. No wonder with season 30, they were trying to bring back more of the classic characters.

    Yes, exactly. It was a lot of characters to keep track of. It was probably the largest human cast in the shows history at that point too. Ruth Buzzi did stick around a bit longer after that even if they never showed her store. I liked ATC just for the fact there were so many friends to follow on the street, but i totally understand the reasons. They probably weren't interested in keeping that extra set around.

    Plus from what my sources have told me, A lot of the 90s era Sesame Muppet characters are either used in Muppeteer workshops or international Muppets.

    It seems both of Cookie Monster's more recent segments Smart Cookies and Foodie Truck borrowed heavily from this concept. So, in a way, we kind of did get Munchin' Impossible.

    I think it would be great if Joey Mazzarino came back as Murray and Murray has his own show where he travels across the country and interviews people and sees new things with a cast of new characters or old forgotten ones like Herry or Sherlock Hemlock.

    Sounds cool! I think Sesame should do a spinoff centered around Murray Monster traveling around the country with old and new characters like Sherlock Hemlock and Hoots the Owl.

    That sounds like an awesome idea, also would you be interested in writing an episode for my new series

    For the last time, Murray Monster isn’t coming back, he’s retired.

    There is one EXTREMLY obscure SS spinoff that I remember. As a kid I didn't get PBS or Noggin or any other channels that aired Sesame Street at the time but I remeber one Canadian spinoff (I don't think I mentioned before that I'm Canadian) that aired on a Canadian kids channel called Treehouse. The show was called "Sesame Street Block", the show did not feature any new content, it was a 45 minute compilation of clips from the regular Sesame Street, Play With Me Sesame and Elmo's World. I only remember watching like 2 episodes of the show and it only aired for about a year (maybe less) and I can't find very much info about this show
