You may remember her as Rose from “227” (or, sadly, as an excitable old woman in a commercial for those wretched Jitterbug phones), but if you grew up watching “Sesame Street” between 1976 and 1988, chances are you’ll best remember her as Gordon’s younger sister, Olivia.

And that, my friends, is how I’d like to remember her.

My friend Josh Peters runs his own blog (Lunchbox Unlimited) and, along with a group of fellow artists, is a part of something called “Sketch-a-Day” where, well, he does a new sketch of artwork every day. Or mostly every day.

Anyway, Josh decided that today’s sketch would be inspired by that video of Stevie funking out on “Sesame,” and here’s what he came up with:

Awesome job, man! I especially love Mr. Hooper playing the broom!
