Sesame Street's 48th season
officially began Monday August 6 on PBS. After you see the new episodes,
post here and let us know your thoughts.

50 years of playing two of the greatest characters in TV history. That is dedication.
I really hope Caroll makes it to season 50...
We can only hope.
I'm 99.9% sure he'll stay till Season 50. Doesn't make sense if he quits now if he's this close to making it to 50 years.
Years ago, he said he intended to stay on board until he physically can't hold Big Bird's head up anymore.
Since reaching that point in life, he then began saying he intends to stay on board till Season 50.
As far as I know from speaking with the castmembers at the Fanboy Expo, plans for Season 50 have already been in the works, and knowing how far in advance they tape SS, they'll probably start taping Season 50 before we know it. As I said, if Caroll has plans to retire after Season 50, and with Season 50 coming up soon, then this Farewell Tour of his makes sense.
It'll be extremely sad to see Carroll not involved at all with Sesame Street anymore.
Yeah, that's just the way it is. With how long the show's been going, the old-timers are going to have to move on at some point.
I do hope Caroll can stick around for the 50th season. Not only would that be a tremendous accomplishment for him, but also for the whole television industry. Very few people have managed to stay on a series for at least 50 years.
Carroll is 83/84 the man can now retire yes it is gonna be different without him but he man is allowed to retire
And I think the henson children should have rehired Steve whitmire because he won't be around forever either
Carroll is the last of the original cast still active on the show. That’s pretty special.
On that note, anyone know if Dick Maitland's still doing the sound effects? I know he has gotten around to doing other projects after Sesame Street, but he has been doing Sesame Street's sound effects since the beginning, if I recall right.
Don't forget Frank Biondo. Cameraman since Day 1.
I couldn’t agree with you more! She’s incredible! If only she got Zoe too! Jennifer sounds NOTHING AT ALL like Fran
