Kristen's Favorite Sesame Street Skits

This new Sesame Street number from a few weeks ago has been making the rounds on the internet, and I have to admit, it's a catchy tune, and it says something worth saying as well. But as our youngest daughter, Kristen, is a four-year-old Caucasian with dishwater blond hair, it's not a skit that especially pulled her in when I showed it to her. She was more interested in some classic Sesame Street Muppet bits, which I was more than happy to show her. Pretty quickly, we developing a bit of ranking, based on how completely the bit in question sent her into paroxysms of laughter on the floor.

Number #5: Put Down the Duckie.

(Wasn't there also a version of this with Gladys Knight and the Pips?)

Number #4: C is for Cookie

(For some reason, she found the vague background monster chorus in this bit absolutely hilarious.)

Number #3: Rubber Duckie

(The classic. Kristen pointed out to me that she owns many small duckies, rather than just one large one.

Number #2: Cooperating with the Count

(As soon as the Count appeared, Kristen identified him as a vampire. Apparently the mass media has done its job well.)

Number #1: The Alphabet

(We're probably never going to be able to practice the alphabet again.)

I was going for skits with the Muppets. But if we want to do Sesame Street cartoon, The Alligator King is the one to beat.

I'm probably REALLY dating myself, but I remember 'Put Down the DUckie' first coming out, when I was a little kid. :)

Oh my. That last one is almost lethally adorable.

However, my all time favorite is this one:

Hector, I really need to track down all the versions of "Put Down the Duckie." I swear they must have filled a few dozen guest stars doing their bits, and then just rotated them in and out.

Latter-Day Guy, that's horrible. Remind me never to let you babysit my children. (I laughed my ass off.)
