I sense that the comforting presence of this wholesome classic in our house is coming to an end. Cars and trucks have replaced Elmo and Cookie Monster, much to my chagrin.
I’ll mourn the cleverly named spoofs like Orange is the New Snack, House of Bricks, and The Spy Who Loved Cookies. I’ll miss seeing how gracefully Gordon and Maria have aged, and Barkley making a comeback.
Through Amazon Video or HBO Streaming you can watch episodes going all the way back more than forty seasons. I was hit by a major dose of deja vu seeing Grover dance in a disco and a little girl with pigtails and knee socks playing jacks in the Burroughs.
While I’m a little sad this chapter may be over, I’m so glad I got to share it through a second set of eyes.
