    Thanks for the update Phillip. At least it's not too late that it'll fall into what should be TV Season 38...
    Would like to know more on what the "in-house" matters that've delayed the season production are.
    And maybe this new focus might allow SS to take one of those steps to getting back to the SS of old.

    But why did they have to include that blurb about CM from last season... Man, that was nothing but stupid media hype... One of the problems with Season 36.
    And you might want to amend the article with the name of that new girl Muppet, Abby Cadaby, there's a thread about her being added to the cast somewhere in here.

    Thanks again.

    The bit about Gina adopting a baby sounds pretty interesting and exciting!

    I would still like to know what the name of that maroon character from season 36 is.

    Well... Seeing as how a name was never given, and he was voiced by Joey Mazzarino... He's been added to the Muppet Listings as Joey Monster.
    Still working on V16... Taking a break until my sources come back from their Spring vacations.

    I'll go with that name until further notice.

    I find everything I just read rather interesting...Cookie Monster continuing to eat healthier, Gina adopting a child, the debut of Abby...what's her last name again?

    It's funny, but when I told mymom about Gina going to be adopting, she starting applauding. And some of the guys at the PBS station I intern for are upset about Cookie Monster becoming "Healthy Food Monster".

    I'm glad there's finally a logical reason as to why the season is beginning late this year, but at least this will be the first time in 12 years I've actually looked forward to August, lol!

    Hey Snowthmeiser... You told those guys that the whole Cookie Monster eating healthier is nothing more than empty hyped stupidity?
    Heck, even in the big song that was to promote him eating healthier... "A Cookie Is A Sometime Food"...
    He ended the song using some of that good ol' CM mentality.
    Cookie: "You right, but you know what time it now? It some time!"
    And then he devoured the cookie and the healthy foods.

    Besides, Cookie Monster ate healthy enough in past seasons and still balanced it with being the Cookie Monster. Just empty hyped stupidity.

    Well, this isn't really anything new. Actually, Cookie Monster's "Healthy Food" rap came out sometime in the 80s. So for the most part, he's still himself. He just sets some boundaries.

    I dislike the idea of moving away from letters and numbers.
    That is what Sesame Street is for.
    Sesamstrasse is so far away from numbers and letters, I don't make a point to watch.

    I thought that was a little strange myself.

    Another thing I'm somewhat bothered about is the fact Gina's not married and becomeing a mom. Now I won't nessecarly say that it's totally bad that she's becomming an unmarried mom but these days i've often heard some say that the role of fathers is underestimated by many and this seems like an attempt to idolize it.

    Mike--at least Gina is adopting the kid, not pregnant with it. (I've never seen her in love with a steady boyfriend, let alone a husband...so Gina seems more like a would-be Supermom than a tramp IMO.)

    Sesame Street was intended to teach both academic lessons (letters, numbers, shapes, rhyming...) and social lessons (family, sharing, emotions...) from Day One. As long as the show makes room for both, Sesame Workshop is doing the right thing.

    That is fine, but they said "not so much ABCs and 123s".
    They have been dealing with it equally, but if you move away from one and move closer to another it is not equal any more.

    Sesame Street's New Season thoughts

    Hmmmmm, Gina adopting a baby, will it be a boy or a girl? Do you even think that she knows how to care for a baby? I often found it hard to cope with the Elmo's world segments, except when he talks about families, and bells.
    And the Journey to Ernie is ok, but it's pretty much been the same. However I did enjoy the scene where you heard Big Bird doing his "BPLH BPLH BPLH" sound as he sleeps in his nest. It does cut out the 30 minutes that the show used to air. Now to make the show more interesting, there should be a restruant, where the people would have to line up and look at the lit up menus on display. And the restruant would have a special on foods that would begin with a letter of the day. i.e. "Todays Special is the letter B, so today we're serving foods that begin with the letter B, like Bagels, Beans, Bacon, Bananas, Broccoli."
    And Maybe they should have more of an interactive thing, so kids won't just sit on the couch and watch the show, they would learn by doing. Even if the muppets or people ask kids watching the tv show a question, they won't hear what the kids say, but they just assume what the kids say and get their answers that way.

    Yeah I'm pretty sure gina is around that age,because I think she was a teen when she started on there,in the mid 80's.Oh, Kimp I'm sorry about how that other Sesame Street thread ended.

    I've heard rumors elsewhere...which seem a little off for a childrens show...that Bert and Ernie are becoming partners...I wasn't going to mention this but seeing as the same person who told me this rumor also mentioned that Cookie Monster is going to start eating healthier...I decided to mention it

    Um Valentine... Disregard that rumor please. Just nothing more than the usual sick inuendo everyone who doesn't fully understand the dynamics of a classic character duo slings their way.
