I think that Sesame Street changed for the worse in 1998. Yes, you've guessed it - the reason was Elmo's World! But really, the show has been changing with the times since the day it began. I suppose Elmo's World was when we realized that it wasn't the same as it was in the seventies. However, I do like how they brought back the counting song that was used in the baker films. Now, if only they'd bring back the films themselves. And who else misses the Mad Painter?
