When mild-mannered doorknob salesman Grover Kent hears the faint cry for help, he becomes Super Grover, a cute & furry hero who’s smarter than a speeding bullet.

Sesame Street: 25 Of My Favorite Memories – Progressive Boink

As Ric the Schmuck can attest, my oldest was completely brainwashed by Sesame Street. We made a 6-hour tape of it and set him in his high chair or playpen to watch it while we played Dungeons and Dragons every Sunday afternoon. (Such parenting skillz!) If you need a prime example of the dangers of overexposure to TV, here he is. And though he’s 18, and we’re probably past the applicability of singing “No, kid, no! You’re not old enough to drive! Na-na-na-NO… that starts with an ‘N’!” I doubt we’ll stop it any time soon.

Pssst… hey, buddy…. wanna buy an “O”?

    “Nuh nuh nuh never.”

    What I wanna know is whether or not my favorite is on there. They hardly played it back when Whiny was small, so I doubt it’s around much now….

    Ba da ba dum, ba bee….be de-bee
    Ba da ba dum, ba dee dee dee.


    I need a life. Oh yeah, in the spirit of this flashback…. “fihball”

    VERY OT, Solly, but I wanted to thank you for fixing Kat’s comments this weekend. The plugin would not work and I stayed up all night on Sat / Sun trying to make TypeKey work instead, which…..ummmmm…..wasn’t the best solution.

    So thanks bunches. 🙂

    This will so date me – but my personal favorites was Kermit the frog as a reporter on fairy tales that went wrong and the song “Which one doesn’t belong?” I could not figure out what was wrong with my kids.. they did not get Sesame Street!

    I think I am the only one who had this aversion to sesame street. It is going to be interesting when I become a mom and have to watch that stuff. *lol*

    Martie, you’d better hope you have Sesame Street available to avoid whgen you get to the mom stage…

    Tis a far better alternative than Barney, Teletubbies, Blues Clues, and the list goes on, and on. (Not that I have a major problem with those shows, but they are far more tedious than Sesame Street.)

    THEN they start to get older, and want to watch Pokemon`, and Dragonball Z, and Yu-gi-oh.

    And the most god-forsaken piece of trash to ever hit the airwaves…..
    Ed, Edd and Eddie. Yuck, yuck, and double yuck. Pwww-thewwy. I thought I could watch any kind of cartoon and eventually find a way to get a chuckle out of it. That one has me beat.

    Oh for the days of Sesame Street… and drinking gray coffee at Solly’s house.
