"Sharing a Pillow?"
Sharing a Pillow
Ernie announces he plans to take a nap, but just as he gets comfortable in bed, Cookie Monster (who was hiding in the bedroom) sneaks up and distracts Ernie with a bell, hoping to steal Ernie's pillow. Ernie investigates, thinking the bell was coming from a fire engine, but he reasons that he would still be hearing the bell if it were that; Cookie quickly hides. Cookie tries his diversionary tactic twice more, with Ernie thinking it is the telephone or the doorbell. The third time, Ernie catches Cookie with the pillow. Ernie tells Cookie he can't have the pillow and demands it back, but Cookie breaks down in tears and says how much he wants the pillow. Ernie suggest that they share the pillow, but Cookie - having the wrong idea - takes the pillow and tears it in half. Ernie cries in frustration as he tosses his now-useless pillow on the floor, while Cookie eagerly begins to eat his half of the pillow.
Is it worth mentioning that the cookies in the bed scene was parodied on Family Guy, where Peter watches "Homicide: Life On Sesame Street". -- User:Areyouakegger 05:25, July 18, 2009
- Theres no need to list that on this page since it's already covered on the page for Family Guy Henrik (talk) 11:40, 18 July 2009 (UTC)
Two other segments not listed here
First there's one where Ernie sings a lullaby to himself, keeping Bert awake in the process, and then there's one of my favorites, when Ernie thinks about the fun he had at the park that day and encourages Bert to imagine what it was like with him, and somehow the sounds of everything Ernie describes are heard in the room.Garrettk41 17:47, 21 March 2008 (UTC)
"The Count Sleeps Over"
I know of at least one earlier airing of the "Count Sleeps Over" sketch than what's stated -- Episode #2173 from 1986, AKA "Captain Swashbuckle." Jphillst 03:38, 22 May 2007 (UTC)
- That's cool -- if you could post a summary on Episode 2173, that would be great! -- Danny (talk) 11:50, 22 May 2007 (UTC)
