Happy Thanksgiving!

For those of you who keep track of such things, this year's Macy's Parade missing Sesame Street cast member was Gordon. Sorry, Gordon.

I couldn't believe Bob is still on. I remember him from when I was little.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I watched the very first episode of Sesame Street; my son was 3 at the time, and he and I both loved it. Those people are like family to me!

It's nice to know that the Children's Television Workshop's nuclear capabilities were under total control during the parade. That's more than you can say about Pakistan, even if the A.Q. Khan salute to "Our Friend the Atom" float stayed home this year.

You are making me laugh about the same thing twice!
For those who wonder about Maria, remember that she was still in her teens when she started on the show. Someone asked about David in your old thread, and that made me think of another old favorite, "Christmas Eve on Sesame Street," in which he has his arm around Maria. Sadly, the actor died in 1990. I liked him.

Hmm...

Maybe they all eat together and one of them stays behind to cook the turkey?

Not exactly, K. Find that link here.

I always thought someone always had to stay behind with a map to explain to people how to get to Sesame Street.
