When Did "Sesame Street" Get So Awesome?

When Did "Sesame Street" Get So Awesome?

OK, so "Sesame Street" has always been pretty great, what with the lovable characters that made it your favorite educational program (not to mention its multiple Daytime Emmy Awards). But this announcement about the upcoming season of "Sesame Street" is both cracking me up and making me wish I had an excuse to watch this show every day.

Maybe I just missed it when I was a kid just trying to figure out my letters and numbers, but I had no idea "Sesame Street" was so darn clever. In addition to guest appearances by Tina Fey, Jon Stewart and Ellen DeGeneres, the new season will apparently be full of pop-culture spoofs, including:

  • "Meal or No Meal"
  • "A's Anatomy"
  • "GNN," a news network with grumpy co-anchors Walter Cranky and Dan Rather-Not

Hmm, maybe the "Saturday Night Live" writers could learn a thing or two from Big Bird and friends ...

What was so funny about it? Just the thought of it makes me laugh but I'm not sure why you would want an excuse to watch it every day. Having it be funny to adults almost seems like it could be a comedy for mature people! :ROTFL:

I think I enjoyed Sesame Street as much, if not more, than my daughter at times. The writing has always been clever and parent-appealing. I wish I had an excuse to watch, especially Meal or No Meal and Dan Rather-Not! Clever.

That's very clever: "GNN w/ Walter Cranky and Dan Rather-Not". :ROTFL: I will be watching the show this year to see if they live up to the laughs and expectations. SNL should hire Sesame Street writers for at least a day and pick out their brains.

This sounds exciting, especially for the parents who watch this program with their young kids. I just hope it stays appropriate for the young audience it targets.
