…of course, thanks to the knuckleheads who make up the GOP.

They should use politicians’ salaries to pay for PBS and NPR,

…this week for two reasons:

1. My good friend Dylan Bolin makes an appearance as voice actor/puppeteer Stan Freberg.

2. There are two amazing quotes that take place during the show. They are:

“This small piece of rubber filled with helium is not the, uh, greatest thing in the world for a king to have floating around his nose.”

-Fred Rogers as King Friday, “The Children’s Corner”

“Somebody with a bizarre sense of humor had passed out pickles… and a  nine-year-old with a gigantic gherkin can be a very dangerous part of  your audience.”

-Pat McMahon, “The Wallace and Ladmo Show”

This isn’t to mention the nod to folks like Jim Henson and Bozo the Clown.

Check it out. Your childhood will thank you.

Google was doing their part in marking the upcoming fortieth anniversary of “Sesame Street.” (The actual anniversary is next Monday, November 10th.)

Of course, it’s no surprise that I love “Sesame Street,” and that the show has had an enormous influence on both my childhood and who I eventually became as an adult.

If you’re in this same colorful boat with me, you might want to pick up this book:

"Sesame Street: A Celebration of 40 Years of Life on the Street"

“Sesame Street: A Celebration of 40 Years of Life on the Street” was finally released last month after literally years of waiting. And you know what? It was worth the wait!

Clocking in at over 300+ pages, this book is the bible of all things “Street.” I was fortunate enough to receive it from my Dad for my birthday and, trust me, it doesn’t get more in-depth than this.

How will you know if you should buy it? Well, if you can’t resist the urge to sing along with this song…

…do yourself a favor and pick it up.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12,
