Sesame Street is going through a set redesign for Fall of 2015. They are in their 46th season. The show is only 4 years older than me. I wouldn't mind if they never changed the set because I'm nostalgic like that but it does make sense that Big Bird's nest should be in a tree. They said they want Sesame Street to represent a street in real life. I'm OK with that. Look at these big changes.
Cookie monster will be living above Hoopers store. I love this. The smells will come wafting up and drive him crazy all day. Hilarity ensues!
Hooper's new store front. I still miss Mr. Hooper. Who is this new guy, "Chris"? Is he a Hooper descendant?
Oscar's can has been updated and moved to a more central location so he can add grouchy commentary to any situation. He’ll also be popping up in trash cans, recycling bins and composting receptacles. I wonder how he feels about recycling? Generally he's against anything that's a "good" thing and he would hate the reduction of waste, but if he can live in a recycling bin too then maybe he'll be OK with it. I'm dying to find out.
Here's a quick glimpse of Big Bird's vintage nest and one of my favorite, most mesmerizing videos from Sesame Street. I loved it so much. Do you remember it?
