Sorry. You got to be quicker on the draw. Lol. I agree. Thank goodness for Classic Sesame Street moments on You Tube. I'd take those over the current Sesame Street any day. About Big Bird, well it's only been two episodes so far and according to the press release on the website he will star in an episode where he makes a number 0 feel better so that's a good sign. Besides, I don't think they'd have Big Bird, Bert, Ernie and Grover in the opening credits if any of those characters were phasing out, so we'll just have to keep watching this season.
