Look into these eyes, and you see that they are google-y

Happy 40th Anniversary to Sesame Street! I am really loving Google's tribute - especially today's. I am a BIG Ernie fan and I think all the Ernie/Bert controversy is RIDICULOUS. Don't get me started, though, I'll start ranting.

I still have my Best of Ernie LP at home! Also, did anyone else have the I'll miss you, Mr. Hooper book? That one makes me cry every time. Oh, and Big Bird goes to Japan! Love that special. (And San, ni, ichi is 3, 2, 1!)

I could go on all day, but I'll leave you with the Yip-Yip Martians. Confession: my husband and I often do silly impressions of these guys - usually in the car.

Anyone else have a favorite Sesame Street memory or moment to share?

Edit, Nov 7: check out today's google for Oscar the Grouch!

Edit, Nov 8: Elmo!


  1. Sesame Street used to be pretty trippy back in the day. Maybe it still is, I dunno. Check out this bit:

    There's no innuendo there, I assure you.

  2. I'm always wondering what kind of subliminal messages we were indoctrinated with as children. You could draw several conclusions from that video. I still like it, though.

    I want to say I've seen it before; it must have reappeared throughout sesame street's reign.

  3. I've been loving the Sesame Street tribute on the Google homepage too!

    To answer your question, I think my fav Sesame Street moment has to be the time Andrea Bocelli came on and sang to Elmo "Time to Go to Sleep" (to the tune of "Time to Say Goodbye"). Classic!

  4. Yay! I love the Yip Yip Martians. I really want to try and make a Halloween costume of them. No idea how though.

  5. YAY! I loooove Sesame Street. When I babysat a few years ago, I would want to sit the kids in front of it because I wanted to see it. I still love Christmas Eve on Sesame Street:

    Okay, I might have to pop in my DVD. ;)
