Who will be on Sesame Street next season?

    We already know that Laura Bush has taped an appearance, and rumors have been run that they're pursuing Ozzy Osborne for an appearance.

    With that, I ask the question, "Which celebrities do you want to see on the Street this season"?

    Here's my list:

    -Jimmy Fallon and/or Tina Fey (They have a humor about that that would make them pretty good to have in a sketch with the Muppets...or maybe they could do a sketch about the letter "F", and bring back Frazzle. Actually, I would like to see any current SNL castmembers make appearances on the Street. It would continue a long "Sesame Street"/SNL connection that began with the Not Ready For Prime Time Players)

    -Jennifer Connelly (Worked with Muppets before in "Labyrinth"...I could see her in a sketch with Big Bird or Zoe)

    -Denzel Washington (If he hasn't appeared already, I think he would be good to give his own interpretation of the ABCs...)

    -Sidney Poitier (Then again, Sidney has a very good voice for the ABCs. For some reason, I see him in a sketch with Baby Bear, though.)

    -Reese Witherspoon (I know she visited the set last year, but I don't know if she taped an appearance. If not, I think she could appear this year. She seems like she could play well off Grover.)

    -Sheryl Crow (She would be a good musical guest, I think. I see her and one of the Monster Muppets performing "Sing After Me", but done with a more rocking style.)

    -Pink (Crazy idea, I know, and the Street's producers might not think it wise, but I think a sketch with her and Big Bird performing the song "Be Yourself (Just Happy To Be Me)" would be cool.)

    -Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band (They're back together now, so is anybody thinking that now's the perfect time for The Boss, The Big Man, Little Steven and the crew to visit the Street and perform "Born To Add"?)

    So, what are your ideas, and what do you think of mine?

    A: Sometimes when a celebrity visits Sesame now-a-days, they screw up classic songs by performing them. I for one cannot stand Destiny's Child's version of "New Way to Walk" or Vonda Shephard's butchery of Everybody's song. The latter especially. It was the worst. However, I love Little Richard's Rubber Duckie. I'm not a dancer, but I almost got up and jammed.

    B: I hope we don't have most of the celebrities you mentioned. Pink especially. Though Bruce Springsteen covering a parody of himself is a really cool idea.

    I'd like to see:

    Brad Garrett (they had Raymond)

    Robin Williams (he was great when he was on!)

    Steve Martin

    Joe Peci (they had DeNero)

    Spongebob (in a very funny counting sketch, counting Jelly fish with Squidward, and Squidward could get stung)

    and Kermit the Frog (long over due appearance, no thanks to EMTV)

    Just not Marlon Brando. Boy, I bet Frank would love to smack him in the puss!

    Bear in mind, Ozzy is only a rumor...

    Anyways, he indirectly made an appearance on the "Street" once when CTW licensed the PSA "Yakety Yak-Take It Back" for air time on the show.

    My list of guests that should be on ss:
    -Bif Naked, singing a mix between "Believe In Yourself" and "I Love Myself Today"

    -Weezer, they did a video with the ms Muppets, they should go visit sesame street

    -Green Day, they'd just go good on it.

    -Blink 182, same

    -Ozzy, crazy, but that's how it goes. he'll have to try not to cuss.

    -Tenacious D

    Okay now I know that I have mentioned Britney Spears way too much on this board, so I'm not going to mention her. Oops! I just did! Sorry.

    I actually had an idea that they could re-do "Count It Higher" with Prairie Dawn and, either the Oinker Sisters, or some other famous group. But I will always think the original is better.

    And also, in a way, I actually prefer the old muppet parodies. I wonder why they don't do that anymore. I think that's what they used to do if they couldn't get the real celebrities. I mean, if Britney didn't wanna do the show, they could have a muppet. What would be wrong with that? I mean, they did a parody of Madonna, and back in the day, people thought she was offensive. Why do you think they don't use muppets anymore?

    How about Kiss? They're more muppet now than legitimate band.
    A couple of years ago I would've put forward Metallica. Think of it
    . . . James Hetfield dueting with cookie on a remake of ' C Is For Cookie'. LOL!

    Now there are some people who just aren't the type to have on the show. Kid Rock actually did ask to be on the show once, and they said, NO.

    I completely agree with Evil Ernie. Weird Al Rocks!!!

    But in response to everyone who wants remakes of classic skits... NO!! NO, NO, NO, NO, NOOOOOO!!!!! I hate when they do that! The classic ones should stand alone!!!

    What I'd like to see next season:

    Less Monster Clubhouse, and more classic skits (and Monsterpiece theater) on Monster Time

    Less Ernie's show and tell in Journey to Ernie, and more classic Ernie and Bert skits

    Reunions of classic characters.

    his name is "crazy ernie". and Metallica would be good on it, but what about a band that sounds MUCH MORE like Cookie Monster! Like NAPALM DEATH or FEAR FACTORY!
  13. ssetta

    ssetta Well-Known Member

    Those bands sound awful harsh to be on Sesame Street.

    Jimmy Fallon and Tine Fey would be great. It would be so funny if he did the song "Drinking in the Woods" on there. j/k

    Jimmy Eat World would be a cool band to have. They have some really good songs on their new CD.

    I'd like to see Willie Nelson, as he's pretty Muppet-like and could sing one of the Muppet standards quite charmingly.

    Or Lance Armstrong, maybe offering Grover some biking tips.

    about the Green Day thing, they should go on it and show Ernie the Dookie cd (since he's in the mosh pit on the back).
    BILLIE: Yep, cuz we love you!
    (well, they might have done it cuz they hate him, i dont know)

    I'd like to see more classic characters. Mumford and Twoheaded Monster came back this season, maybe we'll see others! I hope, I hope!
