"Too Much Educational"

I was sailing down the Amazon.com looking for things cool and fun (although I have not yet read all the books and viewed all the DVDs I got the last time), after setting up a pre-order for the highly anticipated “The Tick Vs. Season One” (which is the animated series with the former Monkee playing Arthur, not the live-action version with Puddy playing The Tick). Anyway, I stumbled upon a just-released Sesame Street video that suggests to me that the residents of that prestigious address have finally taken a flying leap over an oceanic predator*: “Elmo’s Potty Time”. To quote the official Product Description, “This amusing and song-filled DVD teaches children that everyone- mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, friends, and even monsters- has to learn how to use the potty.” Okay, but it also states that the video features “Elmo, Baby Bear, Grover, and other Sesame Street friends”. That’s where I have to take issue with the educational accuracy of this production. Don’t bears do it in the woods?

As for me, I’m obviously going to have to do some more semi-professional writing if I’m going to be able to afford All Eight Seasons of “Red Dwarf” in a single box. At least the ‘Complete Collection’ is a better deal than purchasing each of the Eight 8-episode season/series seperately (which is why I haven’t acquired any of the individual seasons yet). But still, I am severely tempted by the Series 8 (With On-Pack Skutter Toy), because what middle-aged sci-fi comedy fanboy doesn’t want his own Skutter? I just wish I remembered what a Skutter was. I just hope it isn’t a device for toilet training Muppets.

*Jumping the Shark. I’m just tired of saying “Jumping the Shark”. You might say that “Jumping the Shark” has………… no, I won’t say it.
