DID YOU KNOW… Big Bird once traveled to China for a Sesame Street special back in 1983. He walked across the Great Wall (萬里長城), sailed across the Li river (漓江), and drove a motorbike to the Forbidden City (故宫博物院) in search of the Monkey King (孙悟空) and the Phoenix (凤凰) from Chinese legends.

DID YOU KNOW… Ernie's signature song, "Rubber Duckie", made it to the Billboard's "Hot 100 Singles" chart in 1970. It was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Recording for Children, but lost to "The Sesame Street Book & Record," which also contains the song. Sesame Street has produced other songs about Ernie's Rubber Duckie, including "Put Down the Duckie," "Do De Rubber Duck" and "El Patito."

Discarded Ideas: Abby Cadabby

On

 

I recently received a message from someone who asked me to revisit the design for the discarded Abby Cadabby minifigure, using some new parts. One of the reasons I didn't include her in the original submission was her likeness was difficult to capture with older parts from LEGO Digital Designer. However, using a hairpiece from one of the new LEGO Movie 2 sets, I was able to greatly enhance the look of this minifigure. 

What do you guys think of the redesign? Should we include Abby in the set? If we would swap her for one of the other characters currently in the set, which character should she replace? I'd love to hear your thoughts. Let us know in the Comments area.

DID YOU KNOW… Big Bird's teddy bear, Radar, was named by Big Bird's performer Caroll Spinney as a tribute to actor Gary Burghoff -- who played "Radar" on the TV show M*A*S*H. The bear's name is a tribute, reflecting Radar's character, who also brought a teddy bear with him to Korea.

Discarded Ideas: Bruno the Trashman

On

When we designed LEGO Ideas: 123 Sesame Street, there were several characters and accessories that didn't make it into the set we submitted. There just wasn't enough space to fit in 50 years worth of the show into one design. Bruno the Trashman is one additional build we wish could have been included, but didn't make the cut for one reason or another. Check out the design below.

Don't forget... You can make 123 Sesame Street a real LEGO set by voting for this design on the LEGO Ideas website. We only need 1,700 supporters to make this dream set a reality. Please share and ask other Sesame Street fans to vote for this project.

 DID YOU KNOW… The beloved Ernie song "I Don't Want to Live on the Moon" has had several versions through the years. It has been sung by different artists and Muppets, remixed, animated, translated into different languages, and even adapted into a book. The original, performed by Jim Henson and written by Jeff Moss, is still a quintessential Sesame Street favorite.

DID YOU KNOW… Oscar the Grouch's pet worm Slimey has actually been to space. The Slimey puppet was one of the many Sesame Street props brought aboard NASA's Orion Spacecraft test flight in 2014. Slimey was a favorite for the flight, after having appeared on an episode arc of Sesame Street that featured him traveling to the moon.

DID YOU KNOW… The Joker has actually appeared on Sesame Street! Appearing in an animated short back in 1970, the Joker gets a painful lesson on crossing the street, courtesy of Batman and Robin.

While the Joker only showed-up once, Batman and Robin appeared in several bits throughout the first season of Sesame. Check out one of the shorts here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zp8MNbyLyBo
