Just Another Manic Monday

You know what has been making my mornings really great? The sesame street themed Google logos. I could be having a crappy, crappy morning, but I'll get to work, turn on my computer, see this:

or this

And I'm instantly happy. Especially with that Count one, because it reminded me of this:

and then that reminded me of this:

Holy crap, how awesome was Sesame Street?

Anyway, this train of thought eventually led me to think back to all my other favourite shows when I was a kid, and of course to try and find them on youtube, because I apparently have time for this.

Was anybody else obsessed with this show? I never missed it, and it led to me being slightly creeped out by mannequins for the rest of my life.

I was also partial to Under the Umbrella Tree, Sharon, Lois and Bram and of course the quintessential Canadian children's program:

Anyway, this isn't really a post so much as a trip down memory lane, fueled by my ADD tendencies while browsing youtube. Also, I'm incredibly happy that I now have all these clips on one place so I can watch them every day. Is Fred Penner still alive? Returned from Google. He is in fact still alive and is 63 years old. Excellent. Finding out Fred Penner was dead on a Monday morning would have totally ruined my week.

Well, this post is indicative of my state of mind at the beginning of any given week. Sporadic and fairly pointless.

Tune in tomorrow for Travel Tuesday!

Lol! The Cookie Monster and Count Dracula ones are favorites of mine.

This is indeed a throwback. I definitely grew up with this show!
