    That was fun as usual, Leslie Odam did a great job, although the song was a tad generic. It was nice to see the likes of Herry and Rudy on the float. Like I said on a different thread, I wish there was at least one more human character as the float has felt pretty empty recently. Chris never does the parade, leaving Alan and Nina as the only two cast members on the float.
    A couple things that caught my eye, the series of commercials with Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman; i'm a big fan of Parks and Rec, so seeing them together again was awesome! Also, saw an ad for Gwen Stefani's new Christmas special (or was it the Pentatonix special?) , which will feature an appearance by Kermit the Frog.

    Yes, that is a good point. Then there are all those kids also on the float, but I don't know who they are supposed to be? Do they even appear on the show as well?

    The kids on the float are almost never on the show. I think they're there to be back up dancers/make the float seem more kid friendly, etc.

    Oh I see. I was kind of thinking of how for a long time actual kids would appear on "Sesame Street," but ever since the recent reformatting I don't know how often that happens anymore. I even remember how in the 70s, the kids would see with Mr. Snuffleupagus and play with him, even before the adults saw Snuffy was real!

    Yes, he has. Skip to 2:22 of this video:

    Also, I learned from Peter Linz's live Facebook video that Lars MacLean did Herry and Marty did Telly. So with process of elimination, that means Jamie Donmoyer did Rosita.

    I've heard of that, but I couldn't remember when that was.

    I apologize for bumping this thread, but after finding a way to pause Peter's video that doesn't blur the text, I realized that Lars did Rosita and Jamie did Herry. Here's the video with that info:
