    Hah, I thought my brother was the only one that did that! He got Dorothy, and I got Mollie. Guess which species it was? *A mollie is a type of goldfish(y looking fish, at least)*

    We were so creative. They lived for about 3 1/2 years, though. :D

    My mom got a Betta fish as a class pet for her science class last year, and she let them choose a few different possible names then vote. They came up with a bunch of different crazy names (for example, the name that won the vote was Squirt) and she said that next year (or now it's technically this year) she would get an orange one and name it Dorothy. She didn't, though. :p Then again, most middle school students would probably think she's crazy for naming the class pet after a furry red monster's pet fish.

    They were in a tank, though. I think they live longer in tanks than in bowls. More room and stuff. :wisdom:

    (I think it's worth noting that "Dorothy" got really really fat, and Mollie was the *perfect* fish, IHMO. ;)) Dorothy had bug eyes and would always headbutt the glass. We pretended she was asking us questions

    On an off note I had a black goldfish named Death and he lived for like a year and a half.

    You certainly didn't attempt to tantalize fate there.... Reverse Psychology, I guess...

    Back to the subject at fin... hand...

    I wonder what would happen if they got rid of Elmo's World, BUT put a new recurring Elmo related segment, a much shorter one at that, in its place. Something completely different from EW in the subject and context... but still featuring Elmo.

    I totally agree. A shorter segment, more interaction with the other characters. The regular street characters don't appeat much on EW, do they? Only for the specials and stuff, like Grover on the 35th anniversary. Does anyone know? :confused:

    They need more street time and less segments all together. And now they are adding the new Abby Cadaby segment.
