I heard a news item yesterday about a DVD release of some of the earliest episodes in which there is a disclaimer that some material may not be suitable for children! Really, I'm not kidding.

Hi Cindy. I was on Sesame Street from ages 8 till about 11. It was from 1977 or so till about 1981 I'm imagining. The couple shows I remember were me standing in Mr. Hooper's store discussing how I new that the dime was the smallest coin. In another episode I was reading braille to Oscar. Maybe someone can help you figure out how to use the DVD.

Monica,

Do you remember when you were on Sesame Street? On one
episode I watched with my granddaughter there was a
deaf girl who signed. The program is as old as my
eldest daughter, and we watched it all the time when
the girls were that age--from the time my daughter was
10 months old. Then Electric Company and
Multiplication ROck and Government Rock. smile

I purchased a DVD that I thought was the whole first
year; it's just selections from the first 10 years.
It's funny to see how the hair and clothing styles
have changed. I was hoping to get some of my favorite
songs, like Head are the Gardens That Grow Hair, and
Rolling O, but so far I haven't found them on it. I
haven't seen the whole thing, though. I haven't been
able to figure out how to operate their DVD and TV.

I haven't had much experience baby sitting.  I do
remember taking care of my
friend's baby once.  She was about 8 months old.
They said they would be
back in about one hour and of course, they were not
back when they said.  It
was like the baby knew when they left.  As soon as
they left she started
crying.  I did everything I could; held her, sang to
her, rocked her, etc.
By the time they came home they didn't know who to
hug first, the baby or me
because we were both crying.

As for Sesame Street, I was on that show for about 8
episodes.  I'm trying
to see how I can get copies but we'll see.

Sorry, I haven't been much help in this message.

Have a great day,

Monica Svopa
