- Sesame Street
from 1969. Thirty-seven years ago. Sigh.
I had heard this before somewhere and I always thought they were singing "phenomenon". What is manamana anyway?
I have no idea, Gav, but isn't it fun?! lol
Someone sent an email saying it was 38 years, which is correct, but I was born in 1969 and I don't turn 38 for another three months. I'm hanging on to 37 for a bit longer. :)
Annie and I just watched and sang along. She's here at my mom's house with me for the weekend.
Loved the post. The song will resonate nostalgically in my mind for some time, I'm sure.
I'll be 40 in Oct. I was probably sitting in front of the TV when that was broadcast the first time haha.
This is a good one too (from '72)

i looooove this!! always makes me grin. and giggle. and sing along.
i was not even born then, i had not realised ...
I didn't realize it had been so long, until recently they did a VH1 "Behind the Music" special on the band. Their rise to stardom, the sold out concerts. Then the problems with drugs and alcohol, sleeping around with sock puppets and the addiction to fabric softeners. I understand after stints in rehab though the band is now planning a reunion/anniversary tour.
Hey! Thanks for this- my kids(19 and 23) and I sing it all the time but they've never seen the original-
I remember seeing it on the Johnny Carson show the first time- and I was (ahem) nineteen- or maybe younger- this is not the first time, I don't think- Jim Henson was a Carson favorite (along with Truman Capote, Tony Randall, and Carl Sagan)
