    Number 98 features Maria, David, Mr. Hooper, Susan, Oscar, and a gaggle of Muppet monsters. Plus, Little Jerry sings "Telephone Rock," Cookie Monster plays the Remembering Game, and Marshal Grover visits the saloon.

    This one was written after thinking about the current political tension, and how if we listen to each other and make an attempt to understand each other, we might actually have a chance at making worldwide peace a reality. (Sounds a lot like Jim, huh?) For that reason, this has become one of my favorite outlines.

Big Bird asks them where they’re going at this hour, and the adults say they’re going to a disco party. Big Bird asks if there will be a big cake, or games like Musical Chairs. Maria says that it’s a party for grown-ups, and not like the parties on Sesame Street. Big Bird still wants to go, but David says he’s too young.

    I have loved all your outlines of Classic Sesame Street and it gave me an idea but I don't want it to be all the time or it could take some time for me to do too but I would love to draw little pics of the Street Story Lines to go with your little outlines but like I said it could take a while and I would have to be really into it to want to keep doing it but I'll try and as soon as I get some other drawings out of the way. Keep up the awesome work on these storylines

    I never thought that someone would draw pictures to accompany my stories! This is a really interesting idea, but I agree that it could take a long time especially because I have written 99 outlines.

    This would be a VERY big project. If you are SUPER SUPER eager to do this...as in "I won't be able to live with myself if I don't make these drawings"...then go ahead! But I think you should focus on other things, just for your own sake. But I do appreciate your feedback, and please stay tuned for my 100th outline coming very soon! Thanks.

    For me I would only choose certain ones that look like ones that I would have loved to have seen (if these were real episodes) but over time I could do ever so often a few more but the one I read for the first time was "Big Bird's Bird Sound Records/Grover and Maria have a play date" one. So that's the one I'm starting with first. When I at least get two done I'll do a video about them for my YouTube Channel and post it here too for others to watch. But glad to know that you would get a kick out of this too as much as me.
