    Snuffleufagus always sorted creeped me out. I was big into Bert and Ernie. Those guys rocked.

    understandable.

    funny thing is, just after graduating from college, i worked with (albeit not directly) the guy who did snuffleufagus ' voice.

    i couldn't figure out why his voice was so oddly familiar, until a coworker let me in on the secret.

    that's awesome.

    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?

    Ernie seemed pretty happy. Bert was always such a sourpuss, though.

    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.

    "Sam and Friends" aired in 1955 and was the first time the world saw a Muppet and Kermit relates this experience in his book, Before You Leap.

    So damn cool...

    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.

    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.

    A classic hit.

    By the way, the birthday isn't until November 10.

    Premature celebration.

    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...

    I miss Kukla, Fran and Ollie....not necessarily in that order.

    "Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey
