Name six of your favorite characters on Sesame Street and why.
1. Grover - my favorite above all because he is most like me. He is not too bright, but his heart is always in the right place. He is very compassionate to others.
2. Cookie Monster - because he is just too darn cute the way he talks and obsesses over cookies.
3. Big Bird - because he (she) is monstruous in size and should be threatening to little ones, but his big heart and empathy make up for it.
4. Mr. Hooper - I loved Mr. Hooper so much. I was so sad when he died. A shopkeeper who keeps everyone in line, always a friend to others, what more could you ask for?
5. Bob - "Who are the people in your neighborhood?" "One shape is not like the other." Songs I will never forget.
6. Not a character but a video - "Nine, nine, nine, nine, let's sing a song of nine. How many is nine?" "Nine coconut custard pies!!!!!" Funny the things you remember.
