Wow! It's hard to believe that Sesame Street has just turned 40 years old this year! I remember watching the show as a kid and I'd be captivated by the colorful characters on the screen. I think it's great that if it's still on and they change it to adapt to kids nowadays.
Ralph says his favorite character has always been Elmo and he can clearly remember some of the greatest episodes and episodes on everyone's favorite street.
However, my favorite character is Cookie Monster who notoriously demands cookies and devours everything in sight, an action accompanied by the satisfied sound of 'Om nom nom nom.' Even though I'm a little old for Sesame Street now I still love the furry blue dude!
I took this quiz from Blogthings just for fun and here's my result...
You Are Cookie Monster
Misunderstood as a primal monster, you're a true hedonist with a huge sweet tooth.
You are usually feeling: Hungry. Cookies are preferred, but you'll eat anything if cookies aren't around.
You are famous for: Your slightly crazy eyes and usual way of speaking
How you life your life: In the moment. "Me want COOKIE!"
Why I am not surprised? It's all about the cookie, mmm, the cookie, yeah, the cookie! *Om nom nom nom*
Well, I may never see Cookie Monster eat a pipe again, but luckily the memories are preserved on DVD, and in my heart. Happy birthday, Sesame Street. Here's to 40 years more!
So, who is your favorite Sesame Street character? Or what were your favorite shows and characters as a child?
Have a great weekend everyone!
