The kids on Sesame Street: Where are they now?

    I remember these skits with the kids who were pretty much regulars,and wonder what they are up to now being all grown up:

    Kermit and his skits with this girl Tracy (there were two of them)
    Grover and Jon Jon
    Kermit's skit with those two girls: Charla and Fannie
    Any others I left out, let me know.

    Yes it would be nice to hear what they are doing these days. Is the girl Tracy you mentioned that was in the 2 skits with Kermit the girl who kept saying "Cookie Monster" during the abc's and laughing so adorably? And/Or was she the one that kept hugging Kermit by squeezing his neck real hard and making Kermit gasp in a funny sound and then she would laugh real cutely?
    And back in 1989, as you might already know, when SS did a 20 year anniversary prime time special a grown up John John made a guest appearance and counted to 20 again with Herry (reminding Herry that HE goes first and Herry has to go SECOND). John John was in the military and I think was in uniform.

    It is funny you mentioned this because I was thinking for a long time about putting up a thread about it. It would be interesting to know what happened to those kids in the improv scenes with Grover and Kermit, etc., but I am wondering what happened to kid characters that would hang out on the street. They don't really have regular kids on anymore like they use too.

    I also wonder about the girl who sang "Me and My Llama." Somehow, I think it might have been either Mariah Carey or Christina Aguilera when they were little.

    Call me cuckoo, but I've been wondering what a certain little boy who's popped up from time to time is up to now. If it helps explaining which little boy I'm talking about, you may remember him "hanging down from a trapeze, you need you legs to bend at the knees".

    what makes you think that? you need to expalin that in order for us you understand.

    Actually, it couldn't have been Christina because she was born in 1980, and that song was made in 1978. But it might have been Mariah Carey because she was born in 1970. Do you think it could have been her?

    Well, we have seen a grown Jon Jon, Fanny and Shala in the 20th anniversary schedule. I really don't know much about the other kids. I'd like to know whatever happened to Patty from "Christmas Eve on Sesame Street." (Debbie Chen, I believe)

    i still don't understand what your baising your idea that the girl in the lama film was Mariah Carey. If you heard or read somewhere that it was or might of been than I can understand is there anyone else who thinks it might of been her and how so?

    ssetta Well-Known Member

    Well, an "online friend" of mine thinks it might have been her, and that led me to believe it could have been. But, doesn't she have a voice good enough to be Mariah Carey?

    Hiya Ziff,
    The one that did the "a...b...c...COOKIE MONSTER!" with Kermit was a little girl named Joey.My SSU book says that Joey didn't appear in too many skits because she was older than the other kids when it came to the "One of these things" games.
    And the ones that were squeezing Kermit in the "next to" skits were Shala & Fanny

    I always wondered this too because they'd be close to my age.
  14. Ziffel

    Ziffel Well-Known Member

    Thanks for that info, Katzi. :) That laugh of Joey's was so precious and great. And Jim Henson did a great job of not laughing when he had to make Kermit say his irritated lines! (As did Frank Oz and Jerry Nelson when they were with John John!)

    kermit and john john

    does anybody know whether kermit and john john ever appeared together? one thing I noticed about john john's sketches was that all of the ones that i've seen take place in front of a blue background and john john always wore a red shirt. does anybody know if all of his skits were taped in the same day?

    I have an album, cookie monster and grover: true blue, which has the song Still we Like each other, which was originally on the Sesame Street Live album, and john john sang with grover on that song.

    anyway, although John John was was in the military in 1989, in the book Sesame Street Unpaved (made in 1998), it says that he is currently an accountant. I wonder if he still is an accountant.

    In the 20th anniversary special, john john says that his real name is john Williams (I assume that is his name, as he said that that's what they call him now).

    Don't forget that it was Holly Robinson Peete, of "21 Jump Street" fame and Matt Robinson's real-life daughter, who played Sally in the pilot episode and season 1 back in 1969-1970.

    That's right! And she kept getting all the answers way too quick for any of the others to stand a chance, huh.
  18. BEAR

    BEAR Well-Known Member

    I think you are mistaken, Jeffkjoe, because Holly Robinson Peete was born in 1964, making her about 5 years old when Sesame Street first aired.

    I have been wondering the same thing. I don't know John-John. Is he the boy in the Christmas Special, where he pretends to sleep and Grover pretends to be santa and cant get out of the house because everything's locked? I want to know what happened to the kids from "Jelly Man Kelly" with James Taylor... "OHHHH!!! Can he come home Jenny can he come home Jenny can he come? OOHHHHH!!! Can he come home..." I have this on a cd, and I SCREAM it in the car, my friends aren't too happy about it, but its really fun.

    Hmmm. I don't know who that kid was, but I'm sure it wasn't Jon Jon. I'm guessing his real name was Billy, since a lot of them go by their real name.
