Elmo and Cookie Monster at Radio City Music Hall

Elmo and Cookie Monster at Radio City Music Hall.

I don’t remember ever liking Sesame Street when I was growing up.  Maybe I did and I just don’t remember anymore.  Regardless, Elmo and Cookie Monster are still in hot demand, despite Sesame Street being 41 years old.  That’s right!  It originally debuted on November 10th, 1969.  So, some of these cute fuzzy guys are older than a lot of people’s parents are now.  That’s something interesting to consider while watching the show.

Sesame Street is popular all over the world.  My wife told me that when she was growing up, Sesame Street was how she first started to learn English.  So, I guess I have to say thanks to Sesame Street for that, at least.  When I showed the above picture to her, she showed me a photo she took in Singapore a few years ago, with Cookie Monster and Elmo hanging out at an N.Y.D.C. Café & Restaurant:

And it seems that Elmo has a special friend in the Philippines as well:

That photo wasn’t staged.  Thumper likes to hug Elmo while she lounges on the bed and sleeps next to him sometimes.

They sure do get around don’t they?

  1. So Elmo is in charge now? That's kinda weird. What happened to Bert and Ernie? Oscar the Grouch?I've never stopped to talk to those guys. I have a picture with the giant Hershey's Kiss though!As for Thumper, I guess it does sort of look like she's about to choke him out!


  2. Trinidadians all over still sing various tunes from that show and quote same. I tried watching it once in recent years but was mortified to discover that Elmo took over. The Elmo and Cookie Monster people near Radio City crack me up. They're right scary.Also, cute picture of Thumper but she's not trying to hug him….she's trying to put him in a choke hold. As she should. Kudos, Thumper. Kudos.
