Sesame Street

“A Lovely Sunny Day” is a cool song by Mashable Video about getting offline and going outside. Performed by actor Zachary Levi and featuring Sesame Street characters as Bert and Grover, the catchy tune will want you to put down your electronics to go and enjoy a nice day outside. Ironic for a site like Mashable, and posted from me.

Every day I sit right there, sit and stare and check my Facebook, Email, Instagram
Chatting with my friends and making plans. But on days with lots of sun
I say goodbye to everyone online and say hello,
Cuz I know there’s a place where all the bees are always buzzing
’bout the flowers they have seen
And every tree is trending, I don’t miss my little screen
Because the sky won’t need a filter and the birds tweet just to say:
You should really take a walk on this lovely sunny day.

The greatest number lover’s convention is coming to Sesame Street this year! Big Fan of the number 5? number 2? The dark number 9? Well then come on down to Sesame Street to join the fun at Numericon!

Sesame Street is genius. Here, they show you how crayons are made, and how they end up tasting so good!

Um…scratch that last part. I haven’t eaten one in decades. But if I WERE, I bet that pink one tastes like the Starbursts they only put 3 in a bag for you.

This is Caroll Spinney, an American puppeteer, most famous for playing Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch on Sesame Street. His mother named him Caroll because he was born the day after Christmas. Spinney has been honored with four Daytime Emmy Awards for his portrayals on the series and two Grammy Awards for his related recordings. Two of the recordings Spinney’s voice can be heard on have earned Gold Record status. For his body of work, Spinney has received both a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1994 and the Library of Congress’ Living Legend award in 2000.

Cookie Monster famously sang in 2005 that “A Cookie is a Sometimes Food” in an effort to combat obesity. (In the song, various fruits are declared “anytime foods.”) In this video, he struggles with the choice between fresh fruit and a delicious cookie:

If Cookie Monster wants to find the Cookie of Oz, he must remember the directions. He must follow the chocolate chip road, do the opposite of what the cookie tin man says, and finally, go through the Emerald Green door. See the world turn from black and white to color in The Cookie of Oz.
