This Post Brought To You By The Letter M, And The Number 3

It's true confession time.  I love my job as a librarian.  But, if by some remarkable chance, the folks from Sesame Street wanted to hire me, I'd move in a New York minute.  I was raised on this show, and I just never grew out of it.  The witty banter, the love of words and reading, numbers and letters, goofy puppets - what's not to love?  Imagine my delight when somehow, the DVD Best of Sesame Street Spoofs landed in my lap.  All the fun skits and songs, none of the boring videos of animals and large machinery. 
I laughed forever about Monsterpiece Theater with Alistair Cookie, especially the spoof of Twin Beaks with Agent Cookie enjoying some darn fine pie.  Richard Dawson made an appearance as the host of the game show Family Food and the Beatles sang Hey Food with Cookie Monster.  From Billy Idol and a Rebel L, to Hill Street Twos, this is great wordplay, great music, and great Muppet costumes - fun for all ages!

After you've had your fill of watching Sesame Street, learn about behind the scenes tricks and the people behind the Muppets with Sesame Street: A Celebration: 40 Years of Life on the Street.  Yes they really are having fun on the set, but it's also a lot of hard work.  If you're a Sesame Street fan, this book and this DVD will be a delight.  If you're not, get started with the best and you'll be singing Cereal Girl the next time you hear Cindy Lauper on the radio.
