it was amazing
bookshelves: tv-and-movies

Pretty much everything you could ever want and/or need to know about Sesame Street (the good years, just before Elmo, Zoe, Baby Bear, and their other little thugs completely took over) in one handy volume - the show's pre-history and beginnings, character sketches, profiles on the people and puppets, scripts of famous moments (even just reading the script from when they talk about Mr. Hooper's death makes me cry!), and even a look at some long-forgotten characters (I still say Roosevelt Franklin and Don Music got a raw deal). Lots of fun reading here.

Jeremy No Sesame Street character ever made me laugh harder than Don Music when I was little. I have always identified with his relentlessly self-defeating attitude.

I cried when I read the Mr. Hooper script, too!!! More than once! In fact, when revisiting this book, I tend to consciously avoid that page. I hate the part when Big Bird says that he'll just give the picture to Mr. Hooper "when he comes back". Big Bird, when people die, they don't come back!

Jesus Christ, I gotta stop...

Bill Try looking for the actual segment on YouTube sometime. I think it's harder to watch now than back when it was originally on.
