I really appreciated how the show handled Mr. Hooper dying. Instead of pulling in another actor, they faced it head on and used it as an opportunity to teach children about death and loss. I'll never forget the adults explaining to Big Bird that Mr. Hooper would not be coming back. Classic!
I loved this show! I remember a lot of things about it. I remember when lightning would strike when the count counted, but in the 80's I heard they stopped the lightning because the children were getting scared. Uh, why did children 'just start' to get scared of lightning after they had been doing this for years?
I also remember the martians outside a house looking in a window. A phone was ringing and they were scared and their bottom lip covered their eyes! And they always said 'yep yep yep.
I remember when the shady salesman would try to get Ernie to buy letters. 'It's only a nickle. A NICKLE! Shhhh, right!
I sometimes show my daughter parts of sesame street on youtube.
I don't remember when David died. I wasnt' watching when Luis and Maria got married.
I loved Grover the most and my oldest girl used to call him 'grober'.
When the martians saw a nectarine tree, I thought that nectarines were from Mars.
I remember how Ernie use to get at Bert all the time.
