*GIVE AWAY IS NOW CLOSED. Drawing is in process. Good luck, everyone!

There will be singing, dancing, and high adventures with all your favorite Sesame Street characters. My inside scoop tells me that Ernie is a captain on the high seas, Bert meets an octopus struggling with the blues and Elmo, yes ELMO, will be dancing to a beat that can only be found in the African rain forest. Impossible, you say? No way, you say? Um, have you been listening? It is Sesame Street and Elmo. There is no limit to what they can do. And my secret source tells me that many of the Sesame Street friends will be there to sing and dance along, too.

Because this is such a big show I was given 4 tickets to give to a lucky reader of my blog. All you have to do is leave a comment between now and October 1, 2010. Doesn’t matter what the comment says, but keep it clean. I reserve the right to delete any inappropriate comment, which would then leave you out of the running for these great tickets. Just thought I had to mention that. Over the course of the next 2.5 weeks I will give you some Sesame Street trivia to keep y’all busy. You don’t have to get the answer right to win and you can comment as many times as you want. The winner will be chosen by either Amber or Sam, depending on who is in the better mood that day, by pulling a number out a “hat”. Don’t worry, I will record the process so you know it is all legit.
Even if you don’t win you can still see Sesame Street Live “1-2-3 Imagine! with Elmo & Friends” at the New Orleans Arena from Wednesday, October 20 – Saturday, October 23, 2010. Check the box offices or ticketmaster for times and ticket prices.
Let’s start with our first trivia question. I will be adding them to this post, so there won’t be any confusion. Remember you don’t have to get the question correct; it will just give you something to talk about. Here we go:
Which character is Elmo’s best friend? Zoe
What musical instrument does Ernie play? Saxophone
All of the Sesame Street Muppets have four fingers, except ____, who has five? Cookie Monster
In the first season of Sesame Street, Oscar the Grouch was what color? Orange
I took the weekend off, but here is your new question, how many celebrities have visited Sesame Street? Over 440 (WOW!)
Here’s an interesting one, which puppet is the only in history to have testified before congress? Elmo
Wooooo, another tough one: Where did the word Muppet come from? Jim Henson combined the words marionette and puppet. Hmmm…I always thought it was monster and puppet together. Learn a lot these days.
I am going to go with a slightly easier question, Whose Super Hero identity makes him smarter than a speeding bullet? Super Grover
Oops, I forgot to put a question up, yesterday, so here it is, today, Who was the first celebrity to appear on Sesame Street? James Earl Jones
I didn’t forget about the question for Monday. I was just sick and went to bed early after running around all day. So, here are 2 questions to keep you busy. Remember we are almost to the end of the contest. We will pick a winner Friday night, October 1.
Which character likes collecting junk, standing in line, arguing and rainy days? (This one is easy. Here is a hint, the answer is not ME!)
Bernice the pigeon belongs to which character? Bert
Okay, once again the technology Gods were against me last night and I couldn’t get my blog to work. In other words, I went to bed totally pissed off that I couldn’t put up a question. So 2 questions, again, today.
How many bottle caps does Bert have in his collection? More than 368
How many Grammy Awards has Sesame Street won? 9
Disclaimer: My family was given 5 free tickets to the show for my participation in this promotion.
