I love watching old Sesame Street episodes (VERY old – the first five years especially). We have both volumes of the Sesame Street Old School DVDs. Surprisingly, Big Brother really enjoys watching them too. I say surprisingly because they’re very dated and not exactly geared toward today’s kids – in fact, there’s even a disclaimer at the beginning of each DVD that says these episodes may not be appropriate for “today’s preschoolers.” (I think they’re just fine, though kids may not be interested in them.)
I thought I’d share my very favorite Sesame Street clip – featuring two girls, two dolls, a dollhouse, and two kittens. I believe it’s from the first season. When we had our “cousin party” right after I got the first set of DVDs, we watched some of it (because my cousin’s wife was in a clip one time – she was hoping it was on the DVDs). Interestingly enough, my cousin – who is male and five years older than me – exclaimed “This is my favorite one!” when this clip came on. I was amused by that, to say the least! (But he has good taste!)
Anybody else have a favorite classic Sesame Street segment? What other shows from your childhood do you like to watch?
