Look at how young everyone is!
I have to say, I was such an easy kid to babysit when I was still a shortie. I blame the adults lack of parenting for encouraging my irremediable couch potato habit. Lolz, I guess whatever it takes to keep kids inside the house and out of trouble wouldn’t be given a second thought.
It wasn’t just Sesame Street that I was hypnotically drawn to. There was The Muppet Show, Jim Henson’s Storyteller (which I am planning to search all episodes of to keep as a collection), TMNT, and all those 80’s animation & sit comms that seem to be making a come back in big format at the box office these days. I’d like to think that Sesame Street was an elemental tool to the formation of my personality. It was the foundation for my learning. I enhanced my vocabulary, improved my math skills, and exercised my cognitive skill watching the day to day episodes. Sesame Street’s such a big influence in my life that I would sometimes count things the same way The Count does (emulating the voice and laugh intermissions), I’ve developed a love for rubber duckies (and yes, I sing the Rubber Duckie song in the shower sometimes), and in bouts of boredom, I’d still be able to sing some songs from different episodes (I love singing The Aligator King with my cousins). I’m going to make an effort to look for and collect the episodes of Sesame Street that I grew up with, just so I could pass it on to the next generation (be it for my nephews, nieces, or my own kids) ‘coz I think watching Vintage Sesame Street produces cool smart kids, like me! HA! I’m just kidding, I am without a doubt a big dork but I turned out pretty OK! :p
