The Smurfs are little blue creatures that live in mushroom houses in a forest inhabited mainly by their own kind. The smurfs average daily routine is attempting to avoid Gargomel, an evil man who wants to kill our little blue friends.
The setting is in a small street in a city where children and furry puppet monsters learn about numbers, the alphabet and other pre-school subjects taught in commercial spots, songs and games. Written by

After the untimely death of Jim Henson in 1990, Kermit the Frog was retired from the show. Kermit appeared only in reruns of old sketches until 1998, when he popped up to do one more Sesame Street News Flash when Oscar the Grouch's pet worm Slimy went into space. Kermit was voiced by Steve Whitmire, who has also assumed the role of Ernie since Henson's passing. See more »

At last! Now you see him and you got to believe me. He's not imaginary after all. I told you all along there was a Snuffleupagus, my best pal. I told you, but you never believed me.
Wait a minute, Big Bird. Maria, Linda and I believed you.
Yeah, but no one else did.
That's right, Big Bird. We didn't, but...
Yeah, but what?
Big Bird, you have a right to be angry.
Sure, I mean after all this time, and we never believed you. That must have been very hard on you.

The episodes that originally aired on a Friday somewhere between 1969 and 2000 had an additional message in the funding credits saying "Recorded at Reeves Teletape III" until 1987. Starting around the 18th season of the show, the message then said, "Facilities by Unitel Video, Inc." See more »
Can this really be the same show that dealt with the death of Mr. Hooper? I can't see them doing anything like that now. They used to count up to twenty. Now they sometimes go past ten. I even remember one cartoon segment where they went up to 40! I miss Mumford the Magician(ala peanut butter sandwiches!) and the honkers. I had a honker doll when I was little. Drove my folks nuts.
Please get rid of Elmo World! He doesn't even TEACH anything.('cept for that one PC Holiday Speacial) and as many others pointed out he's annoying and talks down to kids.
For people who tell me not to get upset over a kids show, I remind them that Sesame Street was a show parents could watch with their kids without being bored silly. The show had jokes that parents could get. and some awesome guest stars.
I have a feeling this show may be coming to an end. It will be replaced by Elmo's World in hour long form.
Farwell Sesmae we had great times together.
