Such cherished memories of this series. My favorite puppet was probably the manic and lovable Grover, though I was also quite fond of Kermit the Frog's hilarious Sesame Street News reports.

The little kids were adorable in their unscripted and unpredictable interactions with the Muppets, and the clever songs, comedy send-ups (Grover as the cheerfully inept waiter serving the long-suffering Mr. Blue; Super Grover wreaking havoc as he attempts to save the world, etc), short films (especially those featuring kids' voice-over commentaries), and animated inserts made this one of my favorite TV shows. It still is.

Vould you like to buy an O????
