I agree Nos, the Muppets were ahead of their time. I don't think there was anything on TV quite like those shows, at the time when Sesame Street and The Muppet Show made their respective debuts. I was a Muppet Show junkie as a kid, and still find it entertaining.
Sesame Street... well I won't really watch that anymore, my time also pre-dates the red menace that is Elmo. Ok, he's kinda cute... but it's sad that some of the new cute monsters have taken over Sesame Street. Poor Harry Monster... you don't see him so much anymore.
