suck it, dora

Newsweek has a good article on "Sesame Street", That Show That Counts.

Reading the article reminded me how truly remarkable that show has been. It's easy to dismiss it as just a children's show, but the show was truly ground-breaking.

(And what does Dora give us???? Nothing but yelling at backpack.)

C IS for cookie and no one will ever convince me otherwise.

The thing that pisses me off, as a Sesame Street purist, is that everyone can see Snuffleupagus now. When only Big Bird could see him he represented all the imaginary friends that kids (myself included) treasured as very real parts of their lives. It was okay that no one else could see my imaginary friends. They were still friends. And now Snuffy just an adorably bashful wooly mammoth.

Which is nice and all, but it's not right.

And for the record, I sort of like Dora. But Sesame Street rules.

(Toby thinks so, too.)
