What Do the Boys Like to Watch?

Like all well-intentioned parents, we try to minimize the amount of time the kids are in front of the boob tube, as well as protect them from the Internet. But, there are times (like when painting, handling hot things on the stove, or wrapping gifts) when the temptation of having an electronic babysitter is too great for a parent to resist.

At these times, we take advantage of playlists on YouTube where we've found many of the clips and skits we loved in childhood that we've been able to share with the kids in an on-demand way. We've also found a few new things, entirely at random. So what are the kids' favorites?
  1. Sesame Street: "Orange Sings Carmen"

  2. Sesame Street: "Manahmana"

  3. Song: "The Rhino Song"

  4. Muppet Show: "Never Smile at a Crocodile"

  5. Book: "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom"

The order of favorites changes somewhat, but that off-key operatic orange has been top-listed for several weeks now. Looking for a few puppet or animated classics (operatic or otherwise) to enjoy? You can find the full list of favorites online.
