I was given the Honest Scrap Award by at least three different bloggers sometime within the past two weeks when I was hiding under the blog with my covers over my head. I'll be damned if I can remember who gave it to me. I want to do that post and pass it on, but I want to give credit where credit is due and link back to the three bloggers who gave it to me. I also need to pass on the Lemonade Stand Award, but I know that Kristin gave that one to me; I distinctly remember crying over that one. So, if you're one of the three who gave the Honest Scrap, can you let me know who you are? I know — I suck.
Speaking of Kristin, she has a post up about a warning label on flashback Sesame Street DVD (WTF???). Kristin put up a YouTube clip of one of her favorite Sesame Street clips and asked for others to do the same. I posted the links in her comments, but I wanted to put them here, too, just because I can. And Grover is funny.
This is one of my all-time favorites — Grover as the waiter and Simon the Sound Guy:
Smokey Robinson and the rather annoying, stalkerish orange Letter U with "You Really Got a Hold on Me":
The Ladybug Picnic:
The Oinker Sisters with "New Way to Walk"
And who doesn't love the Pinball Counting animation sequences?
Does anyone other than me remember Nickelodeon's Danger Mouse and Bananaman? Would it be so hard to get some old reruns of Fraggle Rock going? I watched an episode of the new Electric Company last week and I was pleasantly pleased to see that they stuck to some of the old basics, like the shadow-profile-people breaking words down into phonics:
Left person: SH
Right person: IT
Both together: SHIT!
That's good stuff.
So tell — what are your favorite old school TV shows?
