Howie Mandel's Watchlist.While your mileage may vary, when I took a deep dive into what was included in season 8 of Sesame Streetthese are the top 8 things that jumped out at me as important, funny, cute, cool, or just plain interesting to me. We here at ToughPigs love Muppets. But Muppets alone do not make up Sesame Street. There are the humans, of course. And there are songs and videos depicting real world events like making crayons or saxophones.

And there are animations. Over the years, these colorful segments have added a lot to the format of Sesame Streetand have all had their own lasting importance. But few can argue that there are more recognizable animated segments on Sesame Street that have had the lasting power of The Pinball Number Count.

Making its debut in season 8, The Pinball Number Count is a series of animated segments that follows a pinball as it goes through an extravagant pinball machine, while the Pointer Sisters sing a counting song.

The lyrics count up to the number twelve, with each segment focusing on a different number. Check out that beautiful animation, which really stands the test of time! She is a talented photographer, a phenomenal singer, and can stand up to Oscar or anyone else who tries to mess with her with the best of them. I loved that song so much that my parents studied our VHS tape, pausing and rewinding as needed, and wrote down all of the lyrics so they could sing it to me every night.

And the more I learn about her place in Sesame history, the more I love her. While Buffy Sainte-Marie made her debut as the character Buffy in Season 7, Season 8 saw two very important moments for her character. The first was the birth of her son Dakota, or Cody as everyone called him. In a touching episode, Big Bird gets jealous when everyone pays more attention to the new baby than his own drawings done by the amazing Caroll Spinneyand Buffy comforts him with her signature song, Different People, Different Ways.

The second defining moment, and one Anthony alluded to last weekwas the depiction of Buffy breastfeeding Cody on the show. In this one-minute segment, Buffy shows the world that breastfeeding is natural and wonderful, and the idea was so important that Sesame Street even updated it later after Maria had Gabriella.

Mothers even started a petition in to bring back the segment and spread the word more about how important and natural breastfeeding is. It was a significant step forward in my next topic. Olivia was introduced and was shown to be a strong, independent woman; Buffy took on a larger role, and contributed some very empowering moments; and Susan, Linda, and Maria were featured more as a part of this effort.

While you can definitely argue that the puppeteers could do with more female representation both now and then Fran Brill spent this season uncreditedthis season did take some big strides. Speaking for myself, the saga of Linda and Bob is one that I always wish had been more defined and fleshed out to a satisfying conclusion.

There is so much unrequited tension, it drives me bonkers that they never ended up together. Big Bird has some big moments this season as well. He learns to cope with new baby Cody, draws some amazing pictures, writes a lullaby, feuds with Poco Loco, and switches beds with David. Look at that! This is also the season where Sesame Street reached a true milestone — Episode 1,! In a season that features Mr.

Hooper selling his store Does the transaction go through?? How does he get it back?? I need to see this episode! So how did they celebrate? By having that utterly classic episode we all know and love — Bob finds a puppy. And then gets a little sad when he finds its owners.
