Sesame Street: Golden Era vs Last 15 years?

I haven't watched a full episode of SS in ages, but last time I saw it recently, it sucked.

Yes, I'm looking at it through adult eyes now, but personally I think it's de-evolved into The Elmo Show.

I'm sure those who grew up w/ it during the late 80s & beyond could tell when they aired a classic clip from the 70s....& those old leftover psychedelic 70s clips ROCKED!

PS

GROVER was The Original "Elmo", dammit.

    I agree last time I watched it with my 3 yr old its SUCKED!!!!! I grew up in the early 80's watching it. It was so much better than it is now. If i have to hear the Elmo's World" song again I'm gonna puke.

    I watched it when I was 4-7, and I always liked it. (1996-2000)

    I like Elmo better than Grover.
