Childhood "Memories"

A friend recently posted an old Sesame Street clip on YouTube. Which then led to me doodling around looking up old Sesame Street and The Electric Company videos. I discovered something. There are some phrases that I say All The Time that I had no idea came from these childhood shows. Some I knew the reference for. But I have been saying "I remembered, I remembered" for years, and had no memory that it came from this:

Also, for all of you who have heard me say this about a million times, I am not crazy.

Finally, one of my favorite Sesame Street tunes which I sing all the time. I must have always hated 70's style artwork, though, because I have completely blocked the animation from my brain.

So glad I can now pinpoint when my brain cells began turning to mush.

1 2 3 4 5, 6 7 8 9 10, 11 twe-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-elve!  (See, Monica, I didn't make this up!)


  1. Seriously, I am not that inane, of course I knew this came from Electric Company! Cool videos!

  2. Oh, sorry! I thought we had a conversation and you didn't remember the 12 song. I must be thinking of somebody else. Apologies!

  3. Wow...I had forgotten all about these. It's kinda crazy how much influence a tv show can have on a's proof!

  4. I always remember Grover doing the "near/far" thing. Must be why I became (in my previous life!) a speech-language pathologist! Where's *that* you tube video?!

    btw, you have less than two hours to get your blog in tonight! and now i'm caught up on reading them ... until tomorrow! Thanks for blogging again, Christine!!!!!
