Featured Movie of the Week -- Sesame Street Pinball

If you're old enough, you will fondly remember this little clip from what I consider the "vintage" days of Sesame Street in the 1970's.

I watched Sesame Street a few years ago, as my kids were coming through their fours and fives, and I have to say I was very disappointed. There were very few good cartoon or claymation clips, and the stories that ran throughout the episode weren't very interesting. There were also less puppets than before. You could actually get through an entire episode and never see Grover, Kermit, the Cookie Monster, Bert & Ernie, or Oscar the Grouch, not to mention the Count, Mr. Snuffaluffagus, etc.

What was most disappointing is that for the last third of the show, they switched over to Elmo's World, which is really a whole different show-within-a-show. And I hate it.

So, now I sound like one of those old codgers... "Yeah, back in my day, Mr. Hooper was the best! And Maria? Hubba! Hubba!"

Anyhow, here's vintage Sesame Street, that my kids should enjoy:
