Feist for Sesame Street!

Feist performs her hit single “1,2,3,4″ on Sesame Street’s 39th season. There’s a bunch of new lyrics in this version which teach children to count to four. I realise the song was already called “1,2,3,4″ but this is a perfect example of how dumbed down television is now! We used to learn to count to 20.

When all is said and done, I respect Sesame Street for still trying to make learning fun. I just really really miss the old Sesame Street. If anyone needs me I’ll be in my trailer writing a hit song called “1″. I will also be writing a second version for Sesame Street that teaches children how to count all the way up to one, and in a few years time I’m sure that song will have to be replaced with an even shorter version.

    no no no!!! it’s all good. each episode of sesame street is sponsored by a letter and a number. my guess is that the episode Feist was on was sponsored by the number 4.

    so sad to see you so jaded.

    i think you’re missing it, i respect what sesame street is trying to do here however kid’s television programs really have been dumbed down. have you seen teletubbies? dora the explorer? these shows are a joke compared the programming when i was younger. i learned how to build my own parascope watching Mr. Wizard’s world! there is no comparison to the kid’s shows of the late 80′s/90′s

    Preach! Dora the explora is cool among like grade 3 kids and it looks like it’s made for 3 year-olds. Word to Bill Nye the science guy.
