*Pause... Feel old*

When I started watching Sesame Street, Gordon had hair, Big Bird didn't have any white feathers in his crest, and the whole show had a Spanish/English bilingual component to it.

Wow- 50 years! I think most of us in the States watched the hell out of Sesame Street and grew up with it.

One of the more memorable things I recall was when Mr Hooper died--it was probably the first kid's show to really address the concept of death, and I remember Big Bird trying to understand. It was really well done.

Nice to see original cast members in that current picture!

I got the record when I was a kid:

It had the most remarkable word I'd ever seen (ab-ca-def-gi-jeckle-mi-nop-kwer-stoov-wix-iz)!

Life was just a lot simpler back then for me..... :goodvibes:

The correct Sesame Street character is Roosevelt Franklin.
