#NaptownSlim in these Sesame Streets with some real trill spill from the grill…
Man, I can’t tell you how much stuff I learned and had reinforced watching ‘Sesame Street’ with my mother. I KNOW it’s why I was ready for school EARLY and I KNOW it’s why I did pretty dang good.
‘Sesame Street’ was a legitimate valuable TOOL for teaching SO many things to me…obviously, you have the educational assets…but think about how they taught kids how to TREAT each other…they showed us ‘Sesame Street’ stuff at SCHOOL, man. Bet they don’t do that with ‘Spongebob’ (no shots, I can’t throw Spongebob under the bus, yo…he got jokes.)
Bonus points for Jim Henson; he made it easier for Moms and Dads to explain that all ‘monsters’ ain’t scary, which had to be valuable to someone with a three or four year-old worried about the monster in the closet or under the bed…
…I was that 4 year-old…and my Mama used my dude, ‘Cookie MONSTER’ to break that fear down to me…I still didn’t care for the dark, but at least I had the OPTION of a cool monster, maybe one that was looking for cookies, as opposed to one that wanted to eat my little self…(I don’t know why any monster would wanna eat me anyway; skinny, yo…this is all lean, fat adds flavor…go on somewhere, monster.)
So yeah, I really don’t wanna live in an America without Sesame Street. They might hafta start calling me ‘Slim Henson’ out here on the block.
We gotta save Big Bird’s job!
So sayeth Naptown Slim.
