    I also loved the 40 Dots skech!!!!!!!!! 39...39...39999...400000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 rotfl :)))))))))))))))) I wonder why they don't show it anymore :( well at least we have the memories :) also, I've been studying Russian for the past year (I just finished college this year and studied Russian my last 2 semesters in college) and I can just imagine how the ending would sound in Russian ("tridtsat' devyat (39)...tridtsat' devyat...tridtsaaaaaaaaaaat devyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat...soroooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooookkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk...") -- you'd need a sound file to really get it :)

    btw anybody else here speak Russian? or any other languages? I can speak Spanish fluently (and yes I do watch Plaza Sesamo sometimes), proficient French, and a little of various other languages.

    I would assume they stopped it because kids were horrified.

    yeah I guess...

    at least not ALL kids were terrified of it :) btw can you speak Russian (well I just taught you how to say 39 and 40 in Russian [from my original post], I mean can you speak any more Russian besides that)? or any other languages? I can speak Spanish fluently, proficient French, and a little of various other languages.

    here i am ready to answr becky's question

    Now you said ya don't wana badger me with questions but I am going to give ya a truthful answer. It's not that the dots scare me or anything I was scared of the screan going blury and the way the guy shouted forty . I totaly respect the fact that You like it . Back then It was my first time seeing it and after I saw it i promsied I would never lsiten to it again. Unless someone can truely convicie me that the shouting of 40 is not that bad and the person better be spesfic.

    hey littlejerry / good bye fly

    I never thought that the actual dots scared you, I was just wondering why you didn't like it (the sketch) and I can definitely imagine how people reacted to that 400000000000000 at the end (and no, that is not 4,000,000..., that is a drawn-out 40 representing the ending of that skit); I know that sometimes I would be doing that sketch to myself while on the bus to school, and when I got to the end I would yell 39-39-39-40 so loud that the driver would nearly have a heart attack!!!!!!!!!!!! yeah I was kind of a bad kid sometimes :). well bye for now.
