In honor of Sesame Street‘s 4oth birthday today, here’s an old skit that I strongly suspect may in fact be the very skit my that my mom claims was one of my absolute favorite:
It’s a disco number. With a mirror ball. While this is hardly me dancing around my parents’ bedroom to The Nutcracker or straddling my mother’s feather duster and pretending I was the Wicked Witch of the West, this skit is pretty much just a Donna-Summer-inspired muppet away from being yet another instance of my incredibly gay childhood.
And for that bit of fabulous in my wee formative years, I thank you, Sesame Street. Happy birthday!
UPDATE (11/6/09): After talking with my mother, it seems as though this is unfortunately not the specific skit I was looking for; however, it should be noted that said skit from my youth starred Bert and Ernie. Infer from that what you will.
UPDATE (11/9/09): So this is the skit after all. And my mother used “OMG” in her comment to confirm. All is well in the interwebiverse.
