Sesame Seed

As previously posted I love finding vintage items relating to Sesame Street. Those first few finds definitely sowed the seed of an ever-expanding little collection (even though I am NOT a collector)! Some recent finds include these books published in the late 70s and early 80s.

I love the style of the illustrations and the funny story-lines. I don't suppose Mr. Hooper is still around?



Cute, funny and educational - what more could a kid (or their nostalgic Mum) want?

Mr Hooper died and they did a whole show about it. Allen moved into his shop and opened the diner. When I think about the things I DO keep in my head verses the things that slip away, it's depressing!
Good luck with your "non-collection"!

Wow, that is great. I love your blog and Sesame Street as well! I am actually doing a fun presentation for construction and that Measuring image would be perfect... Any chance I can contact you for a high resolution image of that?
