Sesame Street, though a part of my young life, was not a major player. I'm more from the era of The Magic School Bus, Stop the Smoggies, and Rescue Heroes. I have, however, grown up hearing stories of Sesame Street sketches. Tonight, when I so desperately need to be writing an essay on Louis Riel's 1885 rebellion that's due on Friday, I decided to finally search for these little Sesame scenes on YouTube. Much to mom's delight (and mine), her three Ernie and Bert favourites are all there. So, although it is nowhere near her birthday, I guess I should post them for her.
This first one is really funny, despite being written for widdle kidlets.
The second one is the song she and my uncle would sing on long car rides, much to the increasing despair of their uncle...
And this third one she loved because... YOU GET TO SEE BERT'S ENTIRE BODY. Plus, he's dancing. Go Bert.
Sesame Street seems like it was a pretty good show. I'm sorry I didn't appreciate it more as a kid.
Does the same actor provide the voice for Fozzie and Bert? They sure sound the same.
