Classic Sesame Street (1983)
Not-too-shabby Sesame Street (2005). Now with Buzz Aldrin! (…and Worm-led moon landing programs!)
From the comments of the first video:
- “Cookie has the humility to know that he wouldn’t be able to control himself if he was in such a situation. What a touching sketch. Peace.”
Honourable sophonts are honourable sophonts, and are worthy of respect!
- Thanks to cookie monster, I’ve always thought the moon looked delicious since childhood.
- Cookie Monster: ” It lucky the moon is not a cookie.” Me: “Thank goodness for that. If Cookie Monster ate the moon, there would be no moon light and the ocean wouldn’t experience any tidal waves.”
And from my own head:
- No, you can’t actually hop high enough to go to the moon. Or raise a ladder to get there…. Unless you have Isaac Author-level engineers in your team, with a budget to match! And even then, it wouldn’t be a ladder, exactly.
Meanwhile, on a low-tech world somewhere in the Imperium…
