'Sesame Street' at 40

'Sesame Street' is turning 40 this week! Woo Hoo!

Finally some new episodes.

Though I'm not thrilled about the transformation of the show over the years. Into the new-fangled "learning compartments." Ugh.

The computerization of some characters and the complete elimination of others. Bert and Ernie in claymation. An animated Abby. Ugh.

Join with me as I recall the good ol' days ...

Mahna mahna.

The aliens discovering the radio.

Near. Far.

Ernie counting sheep. And fire engines. And balloons.

The Boogy Woogy Sheep.

I could go on and on. How ' bout "Heeeeeere Fishy Fishy Fishy
