I don’t know about you, but it seems that children’s shows have gotten a lot cooler since we were kids. Yes, I admit Captain Kangaroo was amazing, but face it, shows like Yo Gabba Gabba have Of Montreal, The Shins, and Datarock appearing just to name a few.
Oddly enough I guess Sesame Street feels like they need to play this toddler game as well. First they had Feist doing ‘1234’ and now they have recruited Nebraska’s own Tilly and the Wall to teach children the alphabet. And yes, they are tap dancing. I’m sure I would have paid more attention when I was a kid if great indie bands were teaching me on TV, but then again, it would be some awful late 80’s act (which would be terrible). I never noticed though how much Tilly and the Wall dress like kids though. I am surprised they didn’t have to cover up any tattoos to be on the show. When did Sesame Street get to be so hip?
