This is what Sesame Street used to be, before Elmo took over
Jim Henson's peers ruined it. Elmo is in this special by the way, but
he was a very small part, because this was back before he
popular. I've enjoyed this special since I was little.
Monster Piece Theatre short is priceless! "Put Down the Duckie"
DA BOMB. And then there's the Grover restaurant sketch. I love
those on Sesame Street. The blue guy with brown hair visits a
or a gym or airport, even a taxi, and finds Grover working there,
means this guy is not going to get what he wants. In this
sketch, Grover tries to serve this man four specials: Numero
Numero Dos, Numero Tres and Numero Quatro. But the song and
routine causes them to end up on the floor! But now that those
changed Sesame Street's format, you won't see these anymore!
So really, this special is priceless and a look at
Sesame Street was like before it was run into the ground. If any
you have seen this, I'm sure you loved it. I doubt very much it
ever see the light of day again because the day Sesame Street
old episodes will be the day that hell freezes over!
I will have to agree with one of the reviewer's commentary on how Sesame
Street isn't the same as it used to be. I have a two year old who has
watching Sesame Street and it follows a specific time format. Elmo has
become so big that he now has his own time slot 40 minutes into the show.
Although the skits are more educational (and that should be a good thing)
have to admit that after watching the entire "Put Down the Duckie" video,
the skits are hilarious and subliminally educational. A good example of
is the "Grover, Singing and Dancing Waiter" skit. I loved the McLearer
report skit where Cookie Monster is implicated on eating cookies that
not his (of course, he's got Kermit as his legal advocate so it only gets
funnier). Perhaps the show "jumped the shark" when Kermit left and Elmo
Anyway, the old Sesame Street reminds me of the Muppet Show but with a more educational bent. If you can manage getting "Put Down the Duckie" by all means, I would recommend it whole heartedly.
