User Reviews

one of the coolest educational shows on TV.
24 May 2000 | by (Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

Sesame Street was my favorite show when I was a kid. I remember a scene from the episode where Mr. Hooper died. Gordon told Big Bird that he died. Big Bird thought he would come back, but Gordon told Big Bird that he wouldn't. This episode dealt with death in a way young children would understand, which makes it a classic.

I'll admit it. Sometimes when I'm flipping through the channels, I'll stop and watch SS for awhile. It brings back so many childhood memories.
