    This item gives me an excuse to share a cherished clip of a very early version of Elmo (back when he still kicked some butt, thank you!)

    Kermit is no longer on sesame street :cry:

    you would think Big Bird would take over the show as he seemed the next processor to Kermit, but ELMO came out of the blue (or red) and now has a 1/2 hour segment...

    anyone who has kids and they watch sesame street, you have grown to hate elmo.

    btw, grover is one of the best. I bought a VHS off amazon for $8 JUST so I can see the grover the waiter scenes.

    So, the Count doesn`t laugh & have thunder & lightning after he finishes counting anymore?

    That`s just wrong...

    I always figured it was some orgy involving hand and a few different kinds of animals...

    This is much less creepy!

    Very interesting! I`d always wondered about the inspirations behind Henson and Oz`s characters.
