Your Thoughts: Sesame Street Season 35

Discussion in 'Sesame Street' started by Phillip, Apr 6, 2004.

  1. A con of this episode was that the game show host in the street segment wasn't Guy Smiley.
  2. The game show host should have been Guy Smiley.
  3. The news reporter for the street story of this episode should have been Kermit the Frog.

    A pro I forgot about Episode 4066 was Global Grover: Poland.
    He spotlighted two kids and their dad making scarecrows, and Grover made his own followed by a dramatic recreation. He got his lines confused and quoted the Raven, but I liked it. Too bad it wasn't a Muppet scarecrow character that came to life, but it was still good.

    My thoughts on Episode 4067.

    Pros.
    1 The story from the street was OK, once you got to the involvement of the Robinson family.
    2 My mind's still reeling from the bizarre flashback where we have a younger version of Gordon, Bob, Luis, and probably Alan as a hippy heavy rock band.
    3 It's obvious that this was made for this episode cause Luis spouts all the history of his character, but what's funny is Bob's line... "Hey, I just hope this chick María doesn't end up breaking the band."
    Nicely subtle, a Yoko Ono joke/reference.
    4 Letter of the Day: K was new. Prairie Dawn is involved in this one as well, so if you see her in the Letter of the Day segments, then you know it's going to be a new one except for the letter Q. That one could end up being a repeat, as well as the one with the letter P, we'll just have to wait and see.
    Anyway, Cookie ends up eating the letter K after demonstrating the definition of the word "Kowabunga!".
    5 Number of the Day: 4 was new. The Count counted up his bats four, including Sasha Bat and then says that counting bats will drive him batty.
    6 Deaf Dance Jam live segment.
    7 New Bert and Ernie sketch. This'll have a lot of you guys happy, it's a bit with the new Muppeteers, but in a classic nighttime scenario where Ernie keeps waking Bert up with his musical instruments.
    8 Global Grover: Australia, liked this one of the under-down-under home.
    9 Trash Gordon, was heartened to see that they haven't been completely exhausted. But the bit itself was more of a bland joke.

    Cons.
    1 Celebrity Moment: They have 34 seasons to go through, and someone picks that god-awful dance to be their favorite moment?
    When shall we rid our world of this abomination plaguing the land?!?
    2 The song the Cute & Fuzzy Four wanted to sing was called "Wubba Wubba Woo", but we know it's "Monster in the Mirror".
    Trust Elmo to deface something else of SS.
    3 JTE: The Classic Music Hall was repeated.
    4 Elmo's World: Families was repeated, but at least we got to see Super Grover's Super Mommy.

    Oh, I forgot, another pro is that we see Benny Rabbit brought back in Global Grover when Grover and Shiela are digging their own dugout.
    Hope this helps and have a great day.

    Hey, I did notice that they brought Benny back, but I could not believe that he said, "We're doing the bunny hop!" I think this was the first time EVER that he DIDN'T say "That's benny!"

    Believe it or not, her favorite moment was "The People In Your Neighborhood" song, and they showed a clip of the ORIGINAL version from Season 1!

    Okay.,... I have a lot to cover being absent a few days...

    Friday:
    Pros: Loved the 4 bears and the return of Goldilocks. Plus the used Do de Rubber Duck, and that great Global Grover.

    Cons: EVERYTHING else, besides the Spanish Word of the day, and Reuben Studdard was reused. they used that lame "J...J..Jumpin' J" song (animated by the lame dancing animals company) and even the Trash gordon was reused. Plus Reuben Studdard. Gleehhhh..

    Monday: Pros: funny beginner, refferewnce to Charlie's Restaraunt, those groovey Flashbacks (including Luis's line "we'll open a fix it shop, and then maybe turn it into a mail it shop") The new Ernie and Bert segment was funny, though perhaps a bit long (I'd've cut it after he said "You didn't tell me to think about playing the Drums!") Trash Gordon

    Cons: err.... can't really remember... they had new stuff, so there wasn't too much to complain about.

    Tuesday: Pros:Funny beginner, a bit weird, though. Seeing the Humpty Dumpty puppet again not seen since the 80's. The Global grover was just great. I didn't catch the Trash Gordon, though.

    Cons: Reused Number/Letter/JTE segments. really didn't like the Ernie and Bert skit... there wasn't a joke at all. They used the clay spaceshiops making letter L and that number 11 thing where the girl mistakes a 111 for 11 on her computer... blech...

    I liked it all. My episode messed up at the middle of the showing of Jorney to Ernie. Loved the song that Ernie sang. LOVED IT! Hope they start making more SS music Cd to put more of the newer songs they use. I thought it was cool to see Humpty have a come back. I would give this episode a 10 giving it a great! Thats my two cents.
  13. It's too bad the Martian Beauty was not used as a Number 9 segment in this episode.
  14. Is this the only Season 35 episode with Snuffy in it?

    He was in the season opener, the special... and he had a song the next episode... I think I saw him somewhere else, but I'm not too sure...

    At least the Martian Beauty segment we're all able to see on at least two commercial videos and one CD-ROM.

    Just accentuatin' the positive. :)

    I forgot.... what did they use instead for 9? I recall the Jerry Nelson voiced animated folk singer singing "How many sheep can jumpo over my bed, before I fall asleep at nighttime..."

    I like those ones, indeed I do...

    What else did they use for the number 9 on Episode 4066? Just read my post on my thoughts for that episode above.
    Hope for help with the characters from this week still.

    I missed #4069! Who watched it? What Old Skits did they show on there, and who had a favorite Sesame Street Moment and what was it about?

    I confess, I've only caught one celebrity's favorite moment on the TV. (Not counting the 5 listed on the PBS website.) What sorts of memories to date, and accompanying clips have been shown?
