I was a TV junkie as a kid. I am the Sesame Street generation.
The Tonight Show‘ afforded us the opportunity to work with The Muppets and other ‘Sesame Street’ characters, and we always had the desire to do something that spoke to young people.
The coolest thing I’ve gotten to do in the past few years is guest star on Sesame Street.
The Christian kids’ movies are fun because so many of them are made with low production value, but they’re still trying to appeal to a broad audience like a Sesame Street or something. It’s always fascinating to see how hidden or obvious they want to make their message. Also, the acting in them can be pretty fun.
‘Sesame Street’ was a pioneering educational T.V. show, intended to help underprivileged children. But even those of us middle-class kids spoilt for pedagogical choice couldn’t get enough of it.
When I got to New York, I had no place to sleep. The pay from ‘Sesame Street’ wasn’t enough to rent an apartment. I was staying on people’s couches. I stayed in the dressing room until they found out. I stayed with Jim Henson and his family for a week, and I wanted to do that permanently. I didn’t dare ask, though.
So, I’m on ‘Sesame Street,’ walking around with all these monsters, Elmo and his buddies, a whole bunch of chickens, a whole bunch of penguins and a number four dancing about. It was just pure joy, simple, ridiculous fun, stupid joy. There’s no irony. ‘Sesame Street’ is just a crazy great place to be.
I was watching ‘Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood’, ‘Sesame Street’, ‘Electric Company’, ‘Romper Room’, and ‘Villa Alegre!’ when I said to my self, ‘Hey, self! Wouldn’t it be fun to be one of those kids on the TV?’ My mom thought it was a pretty good idea, too… and she instantly moved us from the Bay Area to Malibu… nice.
I learned my ABCs, 1-2-3 from ‘Sesame Street.’
I don’t really know what it is about vampires that makes them such a powerful symbol, metaphor, whatever in people’s consciousness. But I do know they’re tremendously powerful. I mean, there’s a vampire on ‘Sesame Street.’ And Count Chocula. I don’t know why it’s so powerful.
Rather than saying, ‘I can’t do this,’ ‘Sesame Street’ encourages us to say, ‘I can’t do this… yet!’ That one word changes everything. It emphasizes that your capability isn’t fixed. It highlights the reality that our brain is like a muscle.
‘Sesame Street’ is awesome – not only because they teach, edify and entertain kids but because they savvily make it possible to do so with parental engagement, because the show is loaded with references for Mom and Dad.
I always say I owe my sense of humor to ‘The Muppets’ because I didn’t necessarily know what was going on when I watched ‘The Muppet Show,’ and obviously, ‘Sesame Street’ was made just for me.
I always wanted to be a Muppet. So when ‘Sesame Street’ approached me to guest star, I thought: ‘I’m going to be on this!’ It’s pretty incredible stuff.
Other than the ‘Sesame Street’ soundtrack, which I was obsessed with, the first artist I really felt I’d discovered on my own was Amy Winehouse. She was the first female artist I wanted to write like and sing like and be like.
