  • Shakira has confirmed that she is having a baby boy. Little Shakiro? Congrats! [PopCrush]

RIP Jerry Nelson, “Muppet Show,” “Sesame Street,” “Fraggle Rock” Veteran

You might not recognize Jerry Nelson‘s name, but you’re probably more familiar with “Sesame Street”’s the Count, Amazing Mumford and Snuffalupagus, or Statler (half of the heckling duo of Statler and Waldorf), Floyd Pepper (the mustachioed guitar player in the Muppet Show house band), Lew Zealand (that guy who chucks fish), Gobo Fraggle, Robin the Frog, or maybe even Emmet Otter. Though he may never have had roles as iconic to the Muppets as some of his colleagues, his long, long history with the group touches almost everything they’ve ever done. He passed away yesterday after a long period of declining health, at the age of seventy-eight.

And that’s certainly a good enough reason to collect a few videos of his characters and share them. Read more…

Help Bring Breastfeeding Back To “Sesame Street”!

In order for breastfeeding to be seen as “normal” and natural, and not frowned upon in public, we clearly need to be doing more than what we are doing. The nurse-ins are wonderful, and extremely supportive for nursing moms, but to the general public may be seen as a big nuisance. Which is why I think it’s a good idea for older kids to see moms breastfeeding. No need to hide this natural act. Older kids don’t have to go to a bathroom to eat, why should babies?

I’ve always loved the clip of Buffy nursing Cody and explaining it to Big Bird on Sesame Street. Why did segments featuring babies eating from the breast go away? Not sure. Throughout the show’s history, there were numerous nursing moms on the show, but that stopped sometime during the ’90s. Thankfully mom Lani Michelle of the blog Boobie Time (love it!) has started a petition to get Elmo and friends to welcome some breastfeeding moms on their show. Great idea, Lani! We need to support this! Read more…

Don’t you just love it when celebs stop by “Sesame Street” to teach the kiddos a new word? Emma Stone is the latest star on the block and she’s teaching them “balance.” Or trying to, anyway.

I would love it if The Frisky were famous enough one day to do something like this. What do you think our word would be? [YouTube] Keep reading »
