I just had to post this thread. I was watching Sesame Street this morning with my little Rocket Girl for a few minutes before leaving for work.

Buzz Aldrin was on the show talking about the Moon with Cookie Monster. Cookie Monster was initially very sad to learn that the Moon is made of rocks and not cookies.

Fortuantely Cookie Monster reconciled his sadness with a nice song about how wonderful the Moon is up in the sky at night.

I thought it was great that Buzz chose to be on Sesame Street, it is becoming one of my favorite guilty pleasures to watch this show with my daughter.

Show #4090 "Cookie Moon"

Cookie Monster thinks the moon is a giant cookie and sets off on a mission to figure out how he could get to the moon so that he could eat it. While Gordon tries to tell him that the moon is not a cookie, he decides to just let Cookie Monster find out and learn this on his own. Since Slimey has been to the moon before and Gabi is saying a nursery rhyme about the cow who jumped over the moon, Cookie Monster asks them if the moon is a cookie. They don't know since they've never tasted the moon before. Cookie Monster is still left wondering how he could get to the moon and find out if it is a cookie. Finally, Gordon enters with former astronaut, Buzz Aldrin, who explains to Cookie Monster that the moon is made out of rock and while it is not a cookie, it is still a beautiful and exciting place that we can always look up at from the Earth. In the end, Cookie Monster realizes that the moon is not a cookie and that he wouldn't even want to eat the moon since then, it wouldn't be there to shine down on the Earth anymore.

Hey Doug! Gee, I guessed I should have looked here first before I posted over in space workers about the exact same thing! I was just so excited to talk about Buzz being on Sesame Street that I didn't even browse around first.

I won't be redundant and state what I did in the other post ( you can all read it yourself if you're just dying to know , but I will say on a personal note that the most enjoyable part for me was when my little girl yelled "Daddy!" When she saw the Saturn V, because her daddy lets her play with his models..sometimes.

Since Sesame Street just kicked off its 36th season, and I haven't been around that long, can anyone tell me if any other astronauts have appeared on the show throughout the years?

Dang it! I missed it!
It seems the Sesame Street link doesn't have an email contact link, that I can find, anyway. Anyone know if and/or when the Aldrin show will be repeated?
Thanks!

My personal experience, which only goes back a few months, is that in my market, they run repeats on the weekends.

I tell you, seeing Cookie Monster flying around in his open cockpit rocket ship with a gold lame flight suit chowing down cookies was a sight to behold.

I wonder where you can get a crew signed litho of Buzz, Trash Gordon and Cookie Monster?

HappyProud, lol, lol, "Cookie Monster thought that the moon was a giant cookie, and wanted to go eat it." ( This is from her post on the Space Workers board ). Liked this line too, "and go to other planets and stars to see if maybe they were cookies." Sounds like thoughts of the little ones alright! Also was very helpful that you found the ep # : 4090. But liked your full review over at Space Workers,
HappyProud.

Thanks alot for the nice words, capejeffs!

For those out there that want to try and catch a repeat aring of this episode, chances are if you live in an area w/ 2 pbs stations, it will repeat the next day on the other station, usually the one with the later time.

For example, if one station airs "The Street", as us dorky stay-at-home moms refer to it - at 8:00 on Tuesday, then the 2nd station will air the same episode 9:00 Wednesday.

Its not rocket science (ba-da-bum!), but it is my area of expertise. Also, "The Street" usually produces 10 new episodes per month, this way allowing for a lot of repetitive broadcasting throughout the month. Keep your eyes peeled all throughout April for that magical #4090...but chances are it will be on tomorrow (Thur) as well.

Oh, but this super mom recorded it, and you better believe my kids will be watching it when mom needs a break- to post on this website for instance!

Take care!
