The Alligator King and His Seventh Son

The Alligator King had seven sons, according to Pixar and Children's Television Workshop veteran Bud Luckey. And yes, this video clip is 100% kid friendly.

This is going to be a tough one for any of us to beat. I LOVE it! You followed the original designs but improved on them. I always loved this one. Do you remember when Sesame Street was cool? Then along came Elmo. I just offended so many people. This is the best, Adrian. Nicely done.

Okay, I've watched Sesame Street for a combined total of 50 years or more - where did I miss these guys. And I'm with Shane, Cookie Monster was alway my favorite and I thought Elmo was annoying. However, I now have a toddler who can sit through all 20 mins. of Elmo's world. Considering that's the only time of day he's does sit I guess I'll forgive Sesame Street for that one.

I also loved this cartoon on Sesame Street! I really like the re-design and the brighter colors! Also, I know why you chose this particular cartoon, it has something to do with the number "7" (hee hee)

I loved that cartoon. Sometimes the animation was all I would watch Sesame St. for. That and the Yip Yip Yip Aliens.
Nice job.
