...had never even existed on the show! Would you have still watched it? I always wondered what SS would have been like with Big Bird or Ernie & Bert, etc. I think if Big Bird hadn't been on the show, I would have probably found a love for Bert & Ernie ,Oscar or Cookie Monster. But if your favorite character(s) never even existed on the show, would you ever have watched it or would you have probably liked someone else? It's pretty hard to imagine I'm sure, Lol.
