Sesame's 35th season kicks off with a prime-time special

Discussion in 'Classic Sesame Street' started by Phillip, Jan 13, 2004.

  1. But in episode #4000 they had Destiny's Child (but only for like, 2 minutes)!

    There were a few clips from Sesame Street Season 35 on EXTRA yesterday.

    They had....
    *Grover the Mail Carrier delivering a package to Oscar
    *The Count's Number of the Day segment,in which the # of the day is 35
    *Elmo and Norah Jones sing “Don’t Know Why ‘Y’ Didn’t Come,”

    and they even showed the classic "Banana Sketch" with Ernie and Bert

    There was even a clip from Elmo's World(from a few years ago)

    There may have been others,but those are all I know.

    And they even mentioned the 35th Anniversary special/35th season on TV Guide Channel.

    They had these clips...

    *Clip of the SS cast from the 35th Anniversary special
    *Oscar reading a book(Trash Gordon I guess)
    *Elmo and Ruben Studdard
    *The Count and Julianne Moore in "Far From Seven"
    *Dr.Feel asking Bob how he feels,and Bob says he's feeling hungry.
    .....and those were all the clips I know of.There might have been others,but I was sure there were more.

    I do have a feeling that Elmo will somehow ruin this show for me, but I'm psyched anyway.

    Although I am a fan of "classic" Sesame, I am looking forward to this special.

    What I really want is DVDs from the first season, when I watched it as a kid. :)

    I feel sorry for everyone making like its a bad thing. I hate when people start putting stuff down just because Elmo's there. I don't like him that much but he is a part of the SS Characters from the 80's and thats all I have to say. I can't wait for it.

    A zero? Gee, that's being very pessimistic. Even if they just show the few older clips mentioned in the article, it'll be well worth an hour of my time.

    And those old clips are exactly what I'm psyched about.

    I hear ya on that (even with the banana in your ear). I may not have grown up with Elmo, so I don't have quite the same connection to him as to other characters, but there are a lot of people who really love him!

    I saw a promo for the Sesame 35th Anniversary special this morning on PBS.

    They showed these clips......
    *Clip of the entire SS cast(from the finale)
    *Clip of Big Bird and Snuffy playing with the kids(looks like it was from Season 34)
    *A clip of Mr.Hooper!(must be from the 70's or 80's,couldn't tell)
    *Scene from Maria and Luis' wedding
    *The Count,Cookie Monster,Herry Monster,Various Monsters and Elmo on the "Elmo's World" set

    Those are all the clips I can remember.

    Oh...and the special airs tonight!!!! :zany: :) :D

    There's video clips of Dennis Franz,Donny Osmond,Seth Green,James Earl Jones and Norah Jones revealing their favorite Sesame Street moments from the last 35 years on that site(you need Quick Time or Real Player to watch the clips).

    Special tonight

    Normally, that'd be 7pm Central, but check your listings and set your DVR!
    I'm taping this for my kid who isn't even born yet (due in November), because
    I want to raise him/her on Sesame Street, just as I was. :)

    I CANT wait to see this! I absolutely miss the old sesame streets so much! I mean, I've seen the new ones and they're great! However, The older ones were so...awesome! There's something about them that no other episodes can replace.. I miss Mr. Hooper.. :cry: I know I'm not old enough to remember any of the REALLY old episodes, but I'm old enough to remember Mr. Hooper..Especially on the Christmas movie from Sesame Street..Oh..And that Follow That Bird Movie is also awesome!!! I HAVE THE SOUNDTRACK! I just can't wait to watch it tommorow...the special that is.. :)

    Well, the show starts in half-an-hour and, according to my guide, will be brought to you by the letter "C" and the number "10." Hmm.

    And for the Mister Rogers fans around here, the 2003 documentary "Mister Rogers: America's Favorite Neighbor" will air immediately after it.

    For a change, I agree with Erine. Wait until you see it to judge.

    Of course it will be. It will re-air tomorrow as the first show of the season. And you know PBS. They always repeat stuff several times.
