Once again: That's not the concern Sesame Workshop had about Early Years Oscar. It was his original rough-edged personality they were worried about, not his residence. [Smile]

Too bad. I liked the rough edge Oscar.

As a kid, this was always my favorite Sesame Street short. Well, among my very favorites, anyway.

Oh, I liked that too, Noemon.

I think my favorites are still two Ernie songs:

Dance Myself to Sleep and I Don't Want to Live On the Moon. Closely followed by the elephants at the zoo getting a bath to "Splish Splash" (which apparently no one loved as much as me because it's not on YouTube. [Frown] )

I also always loved when Bert and Ernie visited the pyramids, and when they went fishing.

And as an adult I discovered this little gem from the 90s on one of the Sesame Street DVDs my daugher Netflixed: Boogie Woogie Piggies do the ABC! As an adult, I get all the references, musical and lyrical, to classic Big Band songs. I probably enjoy it a lot more than my daughter does. She prefers Bert's Purple Hand and Who Took Bert's Cookies?

Do they have the one where Ernie has molded an incomplete clay bust of Bert?

And uses Bert's actual nose to complete the "masterpiece"? [Big Grin]

Count me in as another Ladybugs' picnic fan. I still get that song stuck in my head, about once every two weeks or so. It's usually when I'm counting out loud--when I get to 12 I want to say "and the ladybugs came, to the ladybugs' picnic."

I like the version he did with Aaron Neville.

When I was a kid, long years before the advent of Elmo the Anti-Muppet, there was a Sesame Street album. The first and the original (link -- and you can download the album there as well). Here's the track listing:
  • 01. Sesame Street Theme (The Entire Cast)
  • 02. AB-C-DEF-GHI (Big Bird)
  • 03. I've Got Two (Big Bird, Oscar, Mr. Hooper And Everybody)
  • 04. Goin' For A Ride (The Anything Muppets)
  • 05. What Are Kids Called (Bob And Susan)
  • 06. Everybody Wash (Ernie And Bert)
  • 07. One Of These Things (Bob And Susan)
  • 08. Up And Down (Two Monsters)
  • 09. Bein' Green (Kermit)
  • 10. Somebody Come And Play (The Kids)
  • 11. I Love Trash (Oscar)
  • 12. A Face (Bob)
  • 13. J-Jump (The Kids)
  • 14. People In Your Neighborhood (Bob And The Anything Muppets)
  • 15. Rub Your Tummy (Gordon)
  • 16. The Number Five (The Kids)
  • 17. Five People In My Family (The Anything Muppets)
  • 18. Nearly Missed (Susan)
  • 19. Rubber Duckie (Ernie)
  • 20. Goodbye (The Entire Cast)
I grew up with this album. When I was 12 at summer camp, we did this album translated into Hebrew as our play.

My brother still had the vinyl (because they've never released this on CD) and he ripped it to a CD, copied the jacket and all. So now he and I have actually CDs of the album. It's the best.

Prairie Dawn explains the concepts of "first" and "last" to Cookie Monster...

I tried to find the one with Prairie versus the wind machine, but I can't.

Lisa, my mom still has that record. And the Sesame Street Sing-Along, which we loved even more. And some Mr. Rogers records, and some Burl Ives kids' records (some of the songs have been released on cd but not nearly all.)

All of ours got dubbed to cassette years ago, but I think my mom still has all of the above. Definitely the Burl Ives.

My dad dubbed all of his but my mom's never got done. I should borrow them and use my dad's equipment to dub them (or rip them straight to CD.) But I'd have to not tell my mom whose equipment I was using... [Roll Eyes]

We had that record, too. "Nearly Missed" was probably my favorite, along with the classics "I Love Trash" and "Rubber Ducky".

Kermit the Frog covers the breaking news story of 'Rapunzel'...

Ah, for the days when fairy tales and nursery rhymes on Sesame Street -didn't- mean Baby Bear.

I will periodically sing the ABCDEFGH... song to my kids as they look at my like I'm insane. I get that one in my head too, along with the counting (1 2 3 4 FIVE...) and the ladybug picnic.
