Snuffleufagus always sorted creeped me out. I was big into Bert and Ernie. Those guys rocked.
strangely i did not watch this show much although I was at the perfect age. I think my family was too lowbrow for PBS...among other things.
Is it true that Bert and Ernie are gay?
My daughter loved this show. Wasn't this the first appearance of the Muppets?
Now I have that "Sunny Day" theme song stuck in my head.
I sometimes watched the show with my kids. My eldest has a large faint birthmark on his back that looks like Snuffalupagus (sp).
I remember at the time thinking that the Bay Area Rapid Transit should have had Arnold Palmer (or someone) endorse their system and develop an advertising campaign... BART and Arnie! ;) With the current governor, or any other Arnie it would work just as well.
Kermit was a hipster...

I have always loved Sesame Street... it really set the standard.
The folks behind this need to be commended as do the folks who stand up front... Bob, Susan, and Big Bird have been with the show since it's inception.
And I still remember how much I loved Mr Looper... one of the most beloved of Sesame Street's characters...

I had an undergrad intern one time and she said something about sesame street '... wait, did they have that when you were a kid?' and I said of course but then I looked it up and it turns out I was 2 when it started; so I guess I am the target audience.
i love sesame street. i love muppet show too.
maybe i just love puppet shows.
my favourite character. kind of reminds me of me.
All together now! C is for cookie.....louder!

The show attracted some seriously talented people... Mr Hooper (Will Lee) taught acting and appeared in many features as a character actor prior to SS, Susan (Loretta Long) has a PhD in education and Bob McGrath was famous as an actor and more notably, as a singer.

For all you Colbert Nationites, make sure you pick up a copy of The Man rocking it around a shopping mall as the letter Z in this video...
The aliens scared the crap out of me as a kid. Yip yip, uh-huh uh-huh. They would float through walls etc. Creepy as hell.
I miss Kukla, Fran and Ollie....not necessarily in that order.
