Sesame Street is an iconic American educational children’s television series that has been a favorite of children and adults alike since its debut in 1969. It combines live action, animation and puppetry into a fun program that teaches children numbers, colors and the alphabet. The series is best known for its use of Jim Henson’s Muppets; Big Bird leads a cast that includes popular characters such as Elmo, Cookie Monster, Oscar the Grouch, Grover and Bert and Ernie.

Opening scene: Cookie Monster plays a cookie-rific multi-round game of ""One of These Things is Not Like The Other"" with Big Bird. Monster time: Monster Clubhouse, shorter than on Show #3974 and actually funny. Love that penguin impersonating an elephant! Number of the day (by the Count): 3, with help from the 3 Bears On the Street: Elmo is pleased to take Maria to lunch, just like a grownup, but plans go awry when a grease fire starts at Hooper's Store. Although the fire is put out quickly and with little damage, Elmo is terrified. A fireman notices this and offers to show Elmo the fire station. After a fun tour of the firehouse, Elmo stops being scared and expresses his admiration for the firefighters, even wearing the FDNY cap at the end. My only complaint is that the firemen aren't sexy and smouldering enough, and hey, where are the female firefighters? Other moments of interest: The segment where kids talk about firefighters is fascinating (and cute). Segments with guest stars: Jil
