I am sure all parents out there of little tykes know that Sesame Street is a staple in their  home.  If you are a parent-to-be, this will be your new favorite show (either by choice or by force 😉 ).  I have written about Sesame Street previously. (You can read about it here if you haven’t already.) Today I want to add on to my critique.


Believe it or not, after watching Sesame Street hundreds of times, I saw the segment Birdwalk Empire today. It is very loosely based on the show Boardwalk Empire. I have never seen Boardwalk Empire, but I have heard great thing about it. On Sesame Street, the segment has two groups of “mobsters”: The Quackers (which are a group of ducks) and the Cluckers (a group of chickens). They meet on the boardwalk and have a disagreement about the way they walk. The part that had me rolling (yes, I do laugh quite frequently at this show) was when the leader of the Cluckers sees the leader of the Quackers. He says, “Well, well, well. Isn’t it Clucky Luciano”. For those who may not understand, it is a joke on the mobster Lucky Luciano from the early 1900s. There were plenty of other funny lines, but this one stuck out to me.

Here is the segment if you would like to watch. I have to commend the writers on Sesame Street again. Not only do you keep my son actively engaged during the show, but you keep this momma wildly entertained. Kuddos!
