I picked up the nostalgia gene from my Dad…I love all things historical and reminiscing about the past cue the Little River Band song here…. just a little something about me, felt like sharing today.
I found this image via Pinterest this morning, which took me back to my youth when Sesame Street was new and I was 5 – the first targeted audience. Look how young Bob was and those amazing puppeteers at work. This image is from imagineeringdisney.com – cool website for nostalgic geeks like me BTW!

My favorite part of Sesame Street was the counting segments with the cool groovy graphics. I especially like the falling Baker sequence, always made me laugh.
I read this segment last later scrapped as the falling baker was deemed a little too violent for kids. Things that make you go hmmm…. Jim Henson and company surely did NOT want to upset kids and have them think the baker was hurt I guess.
Years later when I was babysitting and would watch with the children in my charge, there was the groovy 70’s pinball counting graphics segment featuring the singing of “The Pointer Sisters”. File that away should it ever come up in a team trivia game!
Its amazing to me that at my daughter’s age when the show first aired all I was learning – numbers, counting….and today my daughter in kindergarten is reading and doing math…times have sure changed! We took naps at Kindergarten, you can’t nap in the big K today.
What made you happy at age 5? Happy Friday!
