Backyard With Bert

Jarrod Fairclough – Over the past couple of years it seems like Sesame Street have really be leaning in to sketches that have no educational value – they’re just funny.  Look at that 80’s song spoof just a few months back; unless educating kids on Footloose is part of STEM, that thing was made just for…

The Muppets Take The Bowl – Videos

Jarrod Fairclough – We’re still riding that high from this weekend’s extremely successful live shows at The Hollywood Bowl, but we’re devastated that so many people had to miss out.  Thankfully, we live in an age of camera phones, so there’s plenty of video out there of the event.  So, we thought we’d do you a…

A Little More Kermit

Jarrod Fairclough – Next week’s Hollywood Bowl show is shaping up to be a doozy, and our pal Rachel Herrick will be on site to bring us a full recap afterwards.  But in the meantime, The Muppets are promoting the show, and Kermit and Piggy appeared on CBS Los Angeles News to discuss the heatwave currently…
