Sesame Street. I was raised on it, I will always love it, and as far as I’m concerned, it can do no wrong. What? Come on now, well made children’s programming never hurt anyone and we all know that moderation and moderation are the keys, yo. Anyway. I’m all grown up now so I prefer [...]

Elmo Does Late Night

By on May 4, 2011

Why Elmo hasn’t been on the Daily Show, I don’t know – maybe they’re holding out for Big Bird – but his appearance on Jimmy Fallon was pretty awesome: Come to think of it, maybe Elmo isn’t a good fit for the Daily Show. Maybe Elmo’s more of a Colbert guy. Hard to say. In [...]

Oh, hey, you guys: it’s Elmo’s birthday! He’s three and a half! And according to Sesame Street, he’s ALWAYS three and a half, but still! February 3 is his birthday nonetheless! Which raises a few questions: if February 3 is his birthday, but he is the same age every day, does that mean that Elmo [...]

Oscar doesn’t travel home for Thanksgiving, so he couldn’t participate in the anti-grope ‘opt-out’ demonstration that took place yesterday, but he’s not really the demonstration type anyway – protestors always have some silly do-gooder cause that they’ll insist upon explaining, and he HATES that – and also he doesn’t mind getting blasted with radiation. common [...]

The powers-that-be at Sesame Street have been denying for years that Bert and Ernie are, you know, a couple – those separate beds should be the giveaway, no? – but here’s a thought: just because they’re not a couple doesn’t mean that one or the other of them isn’t gay, right? Which means that this [...]

Who the hell cares whether or not Sesame Street ever airs that Katy Perry segment? Not me. Not when they have VAMPIRES. MUPPET VAMPIRES. Sure, Sesame Street has had the Count for, like, forever – which, yes, puts it years ahead of Joss Whedon – but this True Blood spoof is definitive proof that when [...]

I’d like to say that this – a SEXY ELMO COSTUME – is not a sign of imminent Apocalypse, but I fear that I’d be wrong. Horribly, horribly wrong. Source; HT @thatericalper

The Muppets make me happy, just purely and simply happy. Growing up with them has provided me with many a happy television-related memory, and in the pop culture museum of my heart they are placed alongside treasures like Charlie’s Angels, The Bionic Woman, Donny & Marie, and Land of the Lost. But the Muppets and [...]
