Episode 4137 was terriffic and I enjoyed seeing Telly, Baby Bear and Abby Cadabra being paired up that was neat. Hopefully we'll see Abby Cadabra paired up with other regular characters The Count, Ernie, Bert, Grover, and Cookie Monster. I was suprised not seeing an "Elmos Word" segment this time but, it was a nice change of pace.
That's just it. I can't remember and it was so long ago, but I promise you that they did do this before. I posted about it a while back when they did it. I know nobodies gonna believe me about thing, but it's such a blur with them showing three season at a time and then they quit rearing certain episodes from them after a certain amount of time. But I'm 100% sure of it.
But I love Telly spazzing out today and his ranting! Especially about Abby taking them to court and suing them, LOL! I also love the line Grover said to the Broken Letting A When he goes, "Do you know how annoying you are!" Too funny! Oh yeah! love how in the story "Scram Moon", Gordon was playing the moon! LOL!
Now that was the Classic Telly that I remember seeing in each SS show.
Oh yeah, that was funny!
ABBY: (Pops in) Hi!
TELLY: (Shocked) STOP GRILLING US ABBY!
I was thinking the same thing. Telly did seem more nuerotic than he had been the past few seasons. So Barkley did appear? I missed the "Wanda the Word Fairy" sketch. I guess I'll have to pay better attention.
Hmmm. I haven't really thought of that, but they did the same thing on the captioning for Bobby's World. Some people pronounced the name GEN er ric and some pronounced it gen ER ic, but it was spelled the same way. But it's food for thought. I have a cousin who is hearing impaired so I wonder if he thinks of these things.
I do see what you mean, though.
But I think when you give the street story a little more air time like that, it really gives the characters a wider range to be themselves!
Well since everyone loved today's episode i can't say enough but "WOW!"
I LOVED EVERY BIT OF IT! *jumping up and down*
I normaly don't jump around when i'm writing but i'm loving every bit of it. I could not get that there was not Elmo's World today. When i saw Oscar and Slimey i thought is Elmo's World coming on after them or what? Then when i saw that they spread the storyline out through out the whole episode i paused (since i have DVR for DishNetwork) i went and told my mom (even tho she really wouldn't care) but did it anyways. I really hope to see other's episodes like this. I really do. And if anyone has noticed that when the theme is playing. You can see Ernie and Bert in their apartments but it's blue other then their other one. Wonder if they moved or if they repaited it. Can't wait to see if there is some new Ernie and Bert's even tho i would watch any old reruns. But man i can't keep talking about this episode.
Edit: Oh and when i saw the Zoe and Herry song i was so happy to. I love Herry and would love to see him make a come back. Good going my unibrowed monster friend. Thanks for that word Muppet Dude.
Actually, if you look VERY carefully, you can tell that they're just super-imposed infront on a blue apartment interior, as the Ernie and Bert bit you're seeing there is that game where Ernie would play beats on his drums, and have Bert repeat them (buh-dum-bum-ching).
Okay. Now for my comments on today's show. I'm actually watching as we speak. I'm glad they got a Bert and Ernie sketch in today. I realize that was a repeat from a few years ago, but it's good that they haven't forgotten about those two. The highlight of today's show was "Meal or No Meal." Cookie Monster was great with his role as the baker. Plus, I really liked the end.
Sadie: Who can eat 100 cookies?
Sadie, do you really need an answer there. Cookie Monster never lets us down.
So far not much else was too exciting. I haven't caught Abby yet, so I wonder if they'll have an ep without her this season. I'm also waiting to see whether or not they'll have and "Elmo's World." I'lll have to write more later on.
An OK episode... But just like yesterday there was no Elmo's World, there was no bedtime story at the end of today's show.

Episode 4138: Lucy the Lazy Lizard
It was cute in a way but i really thought it was going to go through out the whole show like yesterday but it was still cute and enjoyed it.
Game Show Parody:
Funnest thing i saw today. Cookie was funny at the end. Enjoyed everybit of it. That puppet looked just like "Howie Mandel."
But that's all i can say.
I think the new season has been super so far. I'm even getting used to the new theme music. The street scenes have been good, no Elmo's World yesterday is promising and the parodies have been very funny. Plus, Kingston Livingston was on today! Nice!
Is it just me? But is this the shortest street segment we've had in a while? It was less than 10 minutes. Not that there was much milage out of it. I did like the tiny musical reference to "I Love Lucy" at the end of the skit.
I wonder when they're going to retire the Jane TUesday thing. Not so much her, but that hyper active Crayon Shin Chan wanna be of a little brother of hers annoys me. I know it was a rerun, but this girl has to be 10 by now.
Anyway, I guess the TV parodies work well if you don't like the shows... Greys anatomy, CSI, Dancing with the Stars, Deal or No Deal..... I can't stand any one of them. I love Howie Mandel, but DOND is hazardous to watch. So I loved every minute of the parody. Especially the small hints towards Howies OCD disorder, like not liking being touched.
Other than that, well... rerun or not we finally got an Ernie and Bert segment. I've finally seen enough Muppets in the show to fill me. The last 3 have been lacking in Muppitude.
I will say, yesterday was the only time I've seen that little of Elmo on the show. only one old segment. WOW. Today we got Elmo's world back (not too happy, but it was inevitable), and a story segment. So it's pretty much back to normal on SS.....
Abby's ending was not as much fun as the new Slimey Story Time segments, but still cute. Nice to see she's becoming a defective character, but still endearing for the little kids.
Defective Character: A character who isn't as effective as they say they are... I.E. Inspector Gadget, Darkwing Duck.... Muppet examples include Sherlock Hemlock and Amazing Mumford.
I finally saw the opening today, and it was great. Meal or No Meal was also a funny sketch. I hope that gets a DVD release soon. My local PBS station started messing up before the show ended.
I really glad that we finally got to hear the new closing daytime exiting music today! It was like they used Abby as a reason to play it because they have the new nighttime music with Oscar and slimey now.
Boy, you know something? I honestly thought today's nine-minute storyline was a bit of a lack-luster. I mean Maria reads a book to Elmo for the 11th time, then Elmo goes and worms his way into reading the book with Telly, who's busy playing with his train set. That's it. That's all! I got up early this morning just for THAT? ! Gee whiz!
I did, however, enjoy the "Meal or No Meal" bit! Hey, is it just me, or did it sound like the host was actually played by Dave Goelz? He sounded kind of like Bunsen, didn't he? I thought so. It's possible isn't it? I mean, he DID play the Humongous Chicken in The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland, plus it's been said here that he did another performances on the show shortly after Jim's death.
Oh, and hey... what happened to Abby Cadabby? I thought she was SUPPOSED to be in EVERY EPISODE THIS SEASON... well, where was she? Did I miss something?
Abby was at the very end giving the letter and number sponsors. And she forgot what they we're.
I could tell, But the host of "Meal sounded a little like Marty to me. But that would be cooler then anything if that we're in fact Dave!
Loved Maria's enthusiasm after reading the book ten times and I love how the toast popped out at her at the beginning, too! LOL!
I got to see part of today show and I must admit I LOVED that meal or no Meal bit.
Great also to see and even if it was an old skit from a previous season.
I must admit I thought it was a bit too soon to see Abby Cadabby do the ending credits.
I mean I usual thought that the new characters would have to wait a while to really get into the show before doing the ending credits on their own.
So I must say I was kind of shocked to see this occur within the first three shows of the new season.
Well in her defence, she was having a little trouble at remembering the sponsors.
