    I felt bad about Sesame Street Unpaved. I felt worried that everybody hates old Sesame Street, the Electric Company, any Henson shows like the Muppet Show and any classic CTW shows. But I still HATE the Warner Bros. shows and I still HATE the oldies songs!!!! I think SSU, TMS and the other shows will never be back on again. Do you???

    I'm afraid you're right. I'm very upset about it, but sometimes we just have to accept those changes.:(

    Hey cheer up

    :) I've notices that Unpaved is still showing. It comes on Monday mornings at 3:00. I've still been recording all the episodes that there showing. This mornings episode was when Maria and Oliva went to where Maria lived when she was growing up. It was her birthday. So Susan, David, Luis, Bob, Linda, Big Brid and Oscar went to surprise her for her Birthday. Gordon stayed. Don't know why. Oscar thought there was going to trick someone but ended up not knowing and got stooped into going. It was cool. Oscar even meet another Grouch that lived there. Pretty Cool. Now I have alot of episodes of SSUPed. Now I could record some for who ever wanted some. You name the price. :D

    Wow! That's from 1979. It was Puerto Rico and the episode number is #1316. But what letters and numbers were sponsored on this episode?

    Yes, Sesame Unpaved is still shown at 4 AM Eastern. But I'm talking about the shows they had from Season 25, which were shown at 5 AM and 3:30 PM Eastern before the change. Now, the 5 AM show is Season 30, and the others are Season 31. So I think they're basically phasing it out because they have newer ones.

    The Season 25 shows weren't meant to be "retro." Season 25 was 1993-94. It's what they originally put on for the preschoolers, but even that can be outdated because of the round the corner section, and they had a whole bunch of now-gone characters that no one will recognize. I think what might happen in the future, but I don't know, is that Sesame Street Unpaved and Season 25 may alternate after awhile, or something like that. But I think the idea is that BOTH of them are being phased out.

    What season are they playing on Noggin at 9 & 12:30 now? Just wondering because it seems like I keep catching the same ones over and over and over again! I thought they were going to show some different eps.

    Personally, never cared for the season 25 eps. They introduced waaaay too many characters at that time (human & muppet!)

    I don't think showing different seasons would confuse kids. They show two different season of Barney with different kids and sets and they show really old Mr. Rogers eps. on PBS Kids, so I don't know why they don't show different SS eps. As long as Elmo is around, of course! ;)

    The shows they are now airing at 9 & 12:30 are from Season 31, which was very similar to Season 30, but not as many classic clips, unfortunately. It would not confuse kids if they saw those 2 seasons, but Season 25 was very different. I see that you said "as long as Elmo's still around." But I think the main reason why kids didn't like Season 25 as much as the newer shows was BECAUSE it doesn't have Elmo's World. And unfortunately, that's pretty much all they like now.

    Noggin is only still airing Sesame Street altogether because it's something they have to have, but they don't really anymore, since Noggin is no longer owned by Sesame Workshop. I don't think they even like Sesame Street, because it's too old-fashioned, and they want to do more modern things. I think they only still have Sesame Street because of Elmo's World. And eventually, they will probably just make Elmo's World as its own show, and cancel the rest of Sesame Street.

    I can't believe you said that. Yes I know that Elmo's World has its own Show now but you can't say that. Its like saying Cookie Monster not liking cookies anymore. Listen before long I think that Sesame Street or Sesame WorkShop will get its own channel. (HOPING) But Don't say Noggin will get rid of Sesame Street. It drives that fans crazy. Now please don't take it the wrong way. I just can't stand people giving up. If we keep watching maybe they'll keep showing it. So keep up the the watching it. Bye. Thanks.:)

    I think that is Noggin wanted to really dump SS they would have cut it down to 1 show during the new season and dumped PWMS all together since Elmo's not featured on that (where ARE those new PWMS eps anyway???). But they didn't. They are still showing SS 3 times a day, and PWMS twice.

    ;) ssetta, I think the Season 31 episodes show some classic SS oldies before 15-30 minutes of Elmo's World:

    -Cheerleader muppets cheer for the letter F (an oldie, but the AM goodie from 1969)

    -Mask numbers animations (They appeared many times on Season 25, and, yes, they're back on this season. THANKS NOGGIN!!)

    -Creatures on parade holding numbers

    -Mythical creatures forming numbers

    -Growing numbers segments and "Bellhop" animation series

    -Teeny Little Super Guy!!

    -Little Chrissy sings "8 Balls of Fur"

    -number animations that feature Maria as a voiceover to count each animal until we see the number of how many animals

    -Animated segment where the boy fishes the alphabet to make alphabet soup

    -old format of the drawings of each letter of the alphabet, but it ends with part of the new format of T-Z

    -Ladybug Picnic!!

    -Alligator King & his 7 sons!!

    -old Bert and Ernie skit from the 1970's where Ernie finished taking a bath in his pajamas, and Bert told him that there is one thing he forgot to do-he floods the whole bathroom because he forgets to turn off the water

    -the NOO-nee-NOO typewriter guy!!

    -sand letter animations with the banjo music

    -Hand Talk film
