    Tchyeah... and who wants to bet that if we skip it, they're going to sneak something great into there besides that, and if we DO watch, that will be the only thing worth it? Murphy's Law, man.

    I hope Oscarfan's still getting the episode files. Since he has to go to college and he has no DVR in his dorm, he needs to see what we all are seeing.

    Thanks your concern, I suppose.

    I don't need to see what you're seeing. Chillax, man. This is between me and Philip, not you. I get the episodes when I get the episodes, end of story. I'm not impatient or demanding, I'm very thankful. Just watch the episodes when they air and don't concern yourself with when I see them. I'm not the end-all-be-all of Sesame viewers ya' know.

    Exactly. I'd much rather own an ETM DVD than an EW one. The only EW DVDs I have are Wild Wild West, Happy Holidays, The Street we Live On, What Makes You Happy, Opposites, All About Faces, Penguins and Friends and People in Your Neighborhood.

    "President the Musical" was a great example of how awesome ETM can be. Creative story and jokes and Stephanie's vocals were astounding as always.

    Yeah. That's true. I've noticed even before Frank's retirement specifically in "Muppets From Space" his voice for Piggy and Fozzie seemed to be a bit deeper than in earlier years.

    Today I was watching the 1990s remake of Up and Down, and I noticed Cookie Monster's voice sounding a bit deeper than I'm used to Frank's Cookie Monster sounding.

    The new Murray tune-ins on today's episode were good. The I Am Special song with Frank Oz doing Grover was great! Good to hear him sing again. Oscarfan, apparently, you're relying on me to tell you what old bits they showed so you can add them to Muppet Wiki. So here you go: AFFS, Henking Day, SG 2.0, Penguins with block of ice, Murray game, what's missing, three wheels on his skateboard, and ETM: Circus. Sorry, I only watch the Muppet parts. Maybe someone else can help you with the rest.

    Good thing I missed it. It only had that one bit of new footage that can easily be found on Youtube. I know they're on a budget, but really...

    Since the first half of the season is over next week and the second half doesn't start until February, here's all the songs from the season thus far, including the songs from the street stories, inserts and Elmo the Musical:

    The songs from the street stories and inserts are part of the "Season 43" album; the ETM musical songs in there are their own separate album. Also in there are the songs from the "Healthy Teeth, Healthy Me" initiative video and "Share It Maybe."

    Enjoy!

    I'll probably talk about the rest of the episode later, but I just saw the episode's rerun of Super Grover 2.0 about force and pulling a horse in a carriage. I'm reading into this too much, but the same chicken Muppet SG told to use the force is the same Chicken Muppet they used to make Darth Chicken.

    So basically, that Chicken Super Grover 2.0 told to use the force was Anakin Chicken, and Super Grover 2.0 taught him the ways of the force wrong.

    Except, technically he is when Frank Oz play him.

    Overall, It's great to see a Big Bird storyline again. Wasn't the greatest one, but it's always great to see one. Ball of Wax was a very interesting looking puppet. I guess they could always clean it up and use it as a cheese puppet in time.

    I'm skipping down to Cowboy the Musical, since there wasn't anything else interesting or that hasn't been seen before. This looks like the biggest cast they've had for one of these. And the Chip and Dip cat puppets make a cameo, too. There's nothing else I can say that hasn't been already said about the new Elmo segment. These are great, the music's catchy... this one seemed like the shortest one of them all, though.

    I love the cats always hissing whenever Velvet appeared onscreen. The side characters should react to her more when she appears.

    I liked the street story. Matt was funny as the excited game-show person. The Word of the Day was funny. The new Murray tune-in was good. ETM was awesome! Tons of catchy songs.
