    Saw Gina's kid

    Kermit: So Gina's adopted son Marco is from abroad
    Dr. Teeth: I thought all kids came from broads
    Kermit: No I mean abroad as in from another country
    Fozzie: You mean she adopted a cow
    Kermit: No she adopted a baby from Guatemala
    Everyone: Whatawhola???
    Kermit: Never mind.

    Saw the second ep in the Gina's new baby series today, liked it, sorry I didn't get to comment on it till now, but this whole month has been kind of hectic, tutoring and sub teaching have been picking up. Phone is ringing off hook. Johnathan has been keeping me busy making bottles, plus he started on solid food last week. Also Megan has been sick for the past two days. I missed most of the first ep yesterday Megan had a Clifford video on. Saw the beginning of the new Elmo's World "Fast and Slow" Thought it was an interesting topic, but I had to get to work on a lesson plan.

    Thanks Drtooth, figured that was it after reading it in one of the press releases posted here.

    The new organic food commercial is for Earth something or other baby food, so take that with a grain of salt.
    The voiceovers done by Gordon about the Corporation of Broadcast Providers and Viewers Like You! has the jaunty calypso SS theme closing music added to it.

    Episode 4132, the last of the three-parter with Gina's new baby featured soe good stuff, as have the other two in the special multiple story episode.
    Not to give that much away... But it was Frank voicing Grover in Outrageous Makeover: Home Addition!
    There was a song with Bert and Ernie about Ernie's toes, it was Frank's Bert... And as an extra bonus, we got to see Bernice, his pigeon at the tail end of the sketch.

    Will post thoughts if a chance comes up... Still have two more episodes left from this season, and the middle batch to watch on repeats.

    Finally got to see atleast one of the Marco episodes today. It was Part 2 when Gina finally arrives and everyone wants to help. I thought it was great! Two awesome new songs in the street story. Gina actually has a better singing voice than I remember. I was excited that Bert appeared with the others. Kinda would have made more sense for Ernie to have the line with Rubber Duckie but oh well. Atleast Bert called "Thanks, Ernie!" We got to see Oscar's gentler side again as he seemed very excited about the arrival of Marco too. So many characters in the street story today. More than normal and all equally active. Even the adults. Big Bird, Elmo, Telly, Oscar, Baby Bear, Cookie Monster, Grover, Rosita and Bert in the Muppets group, and Gina, Maria, Luis, Gordon, Alan and Bob in the adults group.
    Aside from Gabby and Miles, Susan was the only grownup not to appear once again. This is really starting to concern me. Have you noticed that they no longer list the cast alphabetically in the end credits? They always used to list the cast alphabetically (with Alison Bartlett-O'Reilly towards the top and Roscoe Orman at the bottom). Now it's all mixed up with Sonia Manzano at the very top and Loretta Long at the bottom with only Gabby and Miles listed below her. Is this a new billing system? It kinda looks like it seeing as though Susan never appears anymore but is strangely always mentioned (like today when Gordon referenced the adoption of Miles).

    Other things I liked in this episode:
    The new song with Ernie. It was fun and silly. Also fun to see him joined by Grover, Bert, Elmo and Honker.
    The song sung by Herry. Nice to have him featured somewhat.


    Trash Gordon is getting old and boring....

    I thought that was Frank. I have to keep the sound low to avoid having my mom hear. (That's also how I missed Gina saying "Bye, Kevin.") Anyway, the little I heard did sound like Frank. He also voiced Grover in the Russian restaurant sketch. I guess they still want him around from Grover/Fat Blue scenes. After all, I guess they want to go with Grover's original voice for classics like those.

    What song was this? I missed it. Was it something old or new?

    Actually, Herry wasn't actually seen. It was one of those films with a song that Herry voiced-over. It was never officially said that Herry is the one singing, but it was definitely Jerry Nelson's Herry voice. So really it is just my own assumption. Not sure how new or old it is. I've never seen it before. He was singing about mothers and babies basically.

    Oh. I think I know what you mean now. But actually, I thought that was Telly. I'll have to listen again.

    Well Herry was in part one, but he didn't say anything, though.

    Trust me. It was Herry's voice.

    Gina: The birds are singing...

    Big Bird: La la la....

    Me: LOL!

    At the very beginning I was wondering who those two guys were looking at Marco, then Gina said "Bye Kevin!" then I looked at the guys face and said "Hey that's Kevin Clash!" I guess I shouldn't be too surprised, they have to fit something Elmo in there after all. ;)

    While not as good as the last two episodes, today's was still pretty cute. You can't go wrong with a Big Bird and Snuffy story! Was anyone else kinda grossed out Snuffy ate the mushed bananas through his snuffle? I was wondering how they'd get the snuffle to his mouth, but he just sucked them up through there...

    I thought the Extreme Makeover was just ok. They could have done a lot more than just put up more doors. But it was still nice to see some classic Grover. "Are you getting the crying?"

    Yet another new letter of the day game! Yea! Can we please just do these from now on? I think they're pretty cute and funny. Definitely wasn't expecting Cookie to eat the Yo-Yo. :confused: And seriously Prairie Dawn, invest in new locks and a security system if Cookie is going to keep breaking into your bedroom to win cookies!

    Looks like I was right about finally getting a Bert and Ernie segment. Not all that great, but it was nice seeing Bernice again.

    I like the sign language word of the day, as well as a new Spanish word of the day. (Telly really needs practice though, he kept hitting Rosita in the head!) It's nice to have some variety, especially since they placed SWotD right before Elmo's World. Something that wasn't predictable for once!

    Hard to believe there's only two episodes left. :( Hopefully they'll continue the good streak we're on. It'll be nice to see Abby again at least.

    Hmmmm. I think that one was done last year. Good point about the locks though. But knowing Cookie Monster, he might break through the locks or security system by biting through it or something.

    Announcer: We're sorry, Cookie Monster. Girl does not begin with 'S.'

    Cookie: Yes, but she has a security system to stop Cookie Monster from sneaking in.

    Baby Games

    Kermit: So Marvin Suggs I hear you want to play with Marco
    Marvin: Yes I do.
    Kermit: What do you want to do with him
    Marvin: Well my muppaphone needs a new head so I thought he might like to volunteer for the job.
    Kermit: Vonlunteer??? You mean you don't pay those guys to get hit on the head?
    Marvin: Pay them? Now there's an idea, I was wondering why they quit so often.

    Saw the 3rd ep of Gina's baby today, liked the idea of Big Bird and Snuffy thinking about babies. As for baby Marco playing baseball, didn't Mr. Noodle already do that with Baby Natasha?
    I loved Grover's Outrageous Home Makeover Addition show, Frank does a very good Ty Pennington. But as for that fourth door on the ceiling, just how did he expect Fat Blue to use it? I did like the way Fat Blue told Grover to get out though after he had taken away all the doors. And then Grover and him both realized that it wasn't possible. LOL

    I hesitate to post this thought because it's just that, a thought, and people tend to see things like this and figure if one person thinks it it's got to be true. So, for those reading, don't believe this. I have no connection to sesame Street, and neither do my old stufed animals :) (Even if they did, they' wouldn't tell me anything :)

    They're too...I'd say overprotective is a good word...to do a story on death, but it's still quite possible that they could do a story on sickness. Little kids do see grandparents and such (or, nowadays, great-grandaprents) who can't get around very well, some of whom can't leave their homes. Oxygen tanks and such are mobile and people can have them in their homes; even such a thing as that wouldn't be too scary.

    They're obviously referencing the fact Susan is still around, but like Mr. Hooper, people will start to wonder where she is. It would be a nice idea to maybe have a special scene (or maybe a two-parter) next year where they talk about how Susan has had some heart or other problems and what her limitations are, but that she is still special and the others can still visit and have fun with her, perhaps more quiet fun but fun.

    It would actually be a good way to talk about medicine, too; how "Susan has to take a bunch of pills because of her heart, but each person's medicine is only for that person. Susan's medicine is only to help Susan, and if anyojne else takes it they could get sick." Kids the age they're targeting can still understand how each person's body is different, so it would make sense that each person's medicine is only for that specific person. (One friend, after a mini-stroke from which he recovered pretty well, still has to take 10 pills a day now.)

    I'm not sure what shape Loretta Long is in - I thought i read on here that she'd had some health problems, but I don't recal lfor sure - but regardless, it would be a nice story, if they do it right. And, they've done a very good job with the adoption one.

    Then again, perhaps SW is too overprotective even to talk about that. It's too bad if they are.
  13. Daffyfan2003

    Daffyfan2003 Well-Known Member

    Yeah. I'd like to see something like that. They could do sort of what they did with Madeline Kahn's character on "Cosby:" Have sort of a tribute episode with flashbacks. They also should mention where she is. Especially, considering Gordon and Miles are still around. They should make some mention of why the family isn't complete. Maybe after I finish posting this message I'll do a Google search and see what more I can find out about her. Now for today's ep:

    Really good actually. Not only the street scenes were good, but they also had a lot of good new inserts (Ex: New Letter of the Day Game, The breakfast foods taking Bert's bed) I also liked seeing Wanda the Word Fairy. I'm not sure I've seen her on the show before or not. Anyway, as for the street story. I enjoyed it. You can't go wrong with Monster on the Spot or Telly and Oscar moments. Plus I liked when Telly was nervous about trying a new square sandwich. There he seemed a lot like the old 80s Telly, constantly worrying about things. Though I do have on complaint. They could have done more with other people trying new foods, rather than just showing brief clips of Gordon, Gabi, Gina and all the other 'G' people. Lol. Then again Gelmo, I mean Elmo only had a brief appearance. That's kind of a good sign. Lol.

    This episode had a strong opening street segment. Oscar and Telly should be in more spots together. One of the best things from the 80's are Oscar and Telly segments. I also love their chemestry, and that it travels over to Big Bird and Snuffy as flawlessly as Frank and Jim as Ernie and Bert, or Kermit and Piggy.

    I kinda think it was a cop out for Telly to have the exact same food just presented (not even prepared) slightly different. The Cherry on Oscar's sundae was funny, considering he just took a bite out of the sourkraut.

    Wanda the Word fairy, the New Cookie segment, and the Ernie and Bert bit were highlights.

    now, the Low lights...

    His V... Her V... I don't care who's V it is, it still sucks! :halo: that segment with the kids painting the giant mural of number 16. I mean, please... retire the dang thing already. it's old and boring, and no one really liked it the first time. And come on it's time to play was repetative and slow as ever.

    BTW... does anyone else notice they redid (well, re-graphically blandished) the "Letter of the Day game" segments from last year, lately? When the cookies fall from the sky, they look like ACTUAL COOKIES, ACTUALLY FALLING, not just random, fake looking, brownish yellow disks falling perfectly vertical? Good move.

    I don't see what you're getting at.

    So if Bob suddenly died they wouldn't have him die on the show? I don't think so. If they were really overprotective, Gina wouldn't have adopted a baby.

    On to today's episode. Another good one. Just insert what I've said all week.

    I didn't enjoy seeing Wanda the Word Fairy again. I hope SW puts her back in the vault and keeps her there.

    I agree. Anyone as long-running as Bob or Susan (who were there since day one!), they can't let it go ignored. Anyway...I can't wait to see the finale!

    No idea who's been writing these episodes, but they definitely have a better grasp of SS continuity...

    Mentioning that Gordon and Susan adopted Miles in Marco's Adoption Episode Day 2...
    Then the fact that Oscar was eating a chocolate sardine sundae, with marshmallows and sauerkraut and a cherry on top, on National Try A New Food Day...
    And today... The mention of the SS Library!

    Also, we're getting good classic segments like...
    Jasper and Julius talking about apples.
    Wanda the Word Fairy.
    Cecile singing "I'm Gonna Get To You".
    The classic version of Dance Myself To Sleep, though I feel they spliced in some extra film footage.

    Rully good stuff.

    Alright. Now for my comments on today's episode. Not bad. I really liked seeing the Sloppy Jalopy again. (Though wasn't it originally yellow?) I also liked that they incorporated Abby in the plot. Too bad her magic wasn't as effective as baby Marco's 'technique.' What happened at the end was sort of what I expected. Since Oscar never got there, he ended up winning anyway.

    Yeah. Though I was hoping they'd show Maria inside. We might have seen Linda.

    Well, the celebrity version originated a few years ago for "The Street we Live On" special. I'm glad they closed the season by showing that classic song. :)

    Food for thought. If Elmo thinks the best way to win a contest is by having everyone share, maybe he should host "America's Next Top Model." All the girls would share the prizes and everybody's happy. Lol. For the most part I enjoyed that survivor "parody."
