    Bob hasn't appeared in season 39-hope he'll be seen in 4186.

    For 4180, it seems that a segment for 8 will be from the classic Number Song Series-these haven;t been shown since the late 1980's.

    I HIGHLY doubt that. Whoever added that to Muppet Wiki has also added several inaccurate segments to several episodes

    Ever since Season 36, number sponsors from 1 to 10 usually get introduced with a partial remake of the Number Song--using CGI colored ribbons to form the numbers and background. I think that's what the article writer meant.

    Really loved episode 4179! Very funny street story!

    Don't worry, I know the feeling. Ever been hounded by a sibling for your muppet fandom? Now that's annoying.

    Yeah it is. He uses it as a rebuttal for me calling him immature.

    Plus, when ever we hear or see Harvey Firestien, my sister bugs me about it, cause he was in Elmo Saves Christmas.

    The celebrity who talked about mustaches was Jonah Hill.

    But this was a pretty funny episode... if anything due to how funny as heck Elmo was with the fake mustache and brown bald cap. But I think it ran too short, and they really should have had Gordon and Elmo do the letter and number of the day segments, instead of reusing the Telly and Baby Bear vest thing.

    The Count's appearance was greatly appreciated, but was clearly prerecorded.

    It almost seemed like they didn't know how to fill the rest of the episode up (this was an ideal place to put an Ernie and Bert Great Adventures). They had a lot of random 90's segments (when you grow up for example).

    But I really like how they followed the theme of Bald caps with Grover as a Wig Salesman, and "I wear a Large Octopus on my head"

    Elmo's Duck song was cute... This was definitely one of the ultra-Elmo episodes this year. We really haven't had that for a while.

    And we finally see a new (was it new?) Elmo's world. But I really really loved the Groucho references. They played "Hooray for Captain Spaulding" and mentioned "Hello, I must be going!" Classic. I wonder if Herald saw that one.

    Yes... Elmo's World: Eyes was indeed new. That, and Drums in the season premiere means only one more new Elmo's World has yet to air this year. Which one? Elmo's World: Frogs. Let's hope against hope a certain frog comes by as the guest, though I wouldn't bank on it.

    Loved today's episode. Especially all the references to the shower cap-er, Gordon's bald head, lol! By the way, I'm not sure what you meant, Count, but the Grover the wig sells man sketch was not new.

    I might as well add this... no one said anything about Murray's brief cameo at the beginning, inside Hooper's. I wonder if they're ever really going to integrate him with the rest of the SS gang. Other than the first episode of the season, where he had a brief scene in the laundry, he's basically just the host of his own segments.

    Before I respond to this, I just want to say that if anyone has a problem with these posts, please don't read them. But the rest of us should be allowed to talk about this. Not to be mean or anything. I say this because whenever we talk about the phasing out of a cast member someone complains. I won't mention any names here. I'm not trying to argue or anything, I just feel like we have a right to talk about this now rather than waiting until it happens because we don't know when that will be.

    Anyway, Bob is still on the cast list, so maybe he's going by the way of Susan only appearing in one ep per season these days. I guess he probably will make at least one appearance this season. Since he's been there for as long as the show has been on he might be busy working on other projects.

    No one's saying you or others don't have the right to talk about such stuff but what's the point of saying anything about phasing anyone out.

    Why would the SW bother to even do that?

    And if Bob or anyone else choose to leave than they'll do so.

    Enjoyed "Abby's 1st Sleepover", "Three Cheers for Us", "Elmo Steps in for Super Grover" and "Sesame Street Bird Games."

    They all were pretty cool. Really enjoyed Sesame Street Bird Games and for the older "Dance Like a Penguin" song being that was one my favorite songs from back in the 90's.

    Grover was funny having that Elephant as a sidekick but pretty much at the end with Elmo once again losing his airplane in the tree again. Funny stuff.

    Now off to watch the newest episode "Elmo Wants to be Like Gordon."

    Thanks for clearing the matter up-I guess the description for the segment wasn't the right one.

    Milo Counting for 4180 is listed on the Muppet Wiki as being "Milo Counting: 8"-that's the wrong number.

    My brain images of yesterday's new episode.

    The Goods:
    -Cute story. I liked everyone ending up with shower caps and mustaches
    -We've been The Count on the street a lot this season
    The yoga class film was cute. It's nice to see some new non-Muppet segments that aren't terrible *cough cough*Jane Tuesday*cough cough*
    -Elmo's duck song was cute too. Although, anyone could've sung it just as well
    -LOVED seeing Grover the wig salesman again! It was one of my favorites as a kid. I love the guinea pig's cry when Mr. Johnson falls over with him on top of his head.
    -Nice to see some more of Mo Williams non-Suzie Kabloozie cartoons.
    -The new Elmo's World was good. Especially the part with E&b and the talking Groucho glasses. I quess they wanted to do a full Groucho parody after a Muppet version appeared in the Noses one.

    The Bads:
    -Uh, we already saw "Dressed Up" this season.
    -The Ernie puppet in EW just looked awful. He's eyes were too small.

    I think Jonah Hill is the celebrity who did "Mustache".
