Letter from a fan!

Lyra and Ripley on a computer.

Dear Annie and Marty,

I just wanted to say thanks for the blog. My daughter Kylie (who just turned two yesterday) loves to ask if we are going to see “the babies.” Thank you so much to you and Marty for bringing the joy of Sesame Street into our lives every day.

Dear Kendal and Kylie,
 
We really are surprised at how many parents are watching the videos with their young children. When we started the blog, we imagined the videos to be more of a goof for other parents with perhaps a little educational content thrown in. We’ve heard from many people that they actually watch the videos with their kids who want to see certain ones over and over again. One mother said her son loved seeing the “Visit to Grandma” movie to watch Ripley fall down in the waves. It scared him, but also mesmerized him. Perhaps now he’ll be less nervous around the surf since Ripley seemed okay plopping down in it. It’s an added plus to our parent blog—kid viewers!

Like your family we have twins, boy/girl, that turned three last month. I saw your blog entry for January and it looks like we have something in common, potty training twins. Like one of your girls, my son WILL NOT pee in the potty but his sister was doing well until she caught on to "Bubbie" not trying. I was just letting things run their course but our local pre-schools/mommy day out programs require the children to be potty trained and this mommy needs a day out. Bribery isn't working. Have you had any success?

How often is the telly puppet renewed or replaced?

I read in 40 Years of Life on the Street about an incident involving Snuffy's puppet where a sombrero caused the wood frame to collapse on you and Bryant Young. Did they rebuild the puppet after that or did they just make a new one?

I've noticed that there are fewer Muppets and people in an episode now than there were twenty years ago. Does everyone show up on the set for filming days or only certain ones? Who decides who gets to play the Anything Muppets? There are some voices I hear more than others.
