    You know what I have not seen in forever? Ernie in a street story. Now that would be a change...

    Or Bert, even. Or even better, Oscar (with or without Slimey).

    Episode 4160 (season 38) had a major Oscar component; only he could report on an elephant in a bathtub

    Good point.

    Oscar is always around, in fact I think he is better off than most of the characters right now :sympathy:. Nope, I still say :p!

    Anyway, getting back to focus...One can never be too old for the Street, because even despite Elmo's over-saturation, the Street is Muppet family. As well, it is an institution and nothing can--or should--replace it.

    Oh yeah. If and When SS goes off air it will be a sad day for us all.:(

    Can't disagree there.

    If (heaven forbid) that happens in my lifetime, some fan ought to do a tribute special: "We're Sure Gonna Miss You, Sesame Street!" :wisdom:

    Not only would generations of fans flock to the tribute, but The Workshop would have a hand in it, too.

    Think we've discussed that before so let's not even go down that road and stick to the thread topic.

    Well, the thread topic is asking if one's too old for the Street and since this is a Muppet site, most will say a definate "No" (that one can never be too old for the Street).

    D'accord! Nobody can be too old for SST, It was made with the intention that parents would enjoy it just as much as their Children.

    Well change can be hard, but I'm mainly upset with change if it's not working.

    Definitely I don't blame the performer. :)

    Elmo has been toned down in recent years, but for a good 10 he was Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyy too popular. I like Him, but by the same token I do not.

    You can't blame the performer, cause Kevin does many other characters very well; like Wolfgang *bark bark*

    Continuous use of the phrase cash cow just cracks me up. lol
  18. The Shoe Fairy

    I truly have no idea. no offense or anything, I just think it's funny. Wait, if Elmo is a cow, then what is Gladys?
  19. The Shoe Fairy

    The Shoe Fairy Active Member

    Maybe they should swap back, but Elmo has a collar with a bell

    Elmo's mother was named Gladys in the "Birthdays" episode of EW, but I don't know whether to accept that as Sesame Street canon; that scene of Elmo's parents waiting for the baby in the hospital was Dorothy's imagination, after all.
