I have no idea what Sesame Street is (same as Voltron / Stranger Things for me) and I am not going to buy it unless it is super awesome or part of modulars line

This one I remember from my childhood and would definitely buy a set of or they could do a theme around Studio Ghibli animes

My whole family, particularly my daughter, would love it if TLG ever released anything Totoro or something from Howl’s Moving Castle. Those are our two favorite Studio Ghibli films.

We got the full straight from the US version when I was little. Can still remember wondering what a trash can was and marvelled that butter could be sold in sticks. Some of the tunes I can still sing (poorly). I liked the pinball counting bit... one two three four five...six seven eight nine ten ...eleven twelve.😊

Do they still use that one?

Just read this, thanks for getting that damn song in my head.  But yes, as someone else said, this was Electric Company.  Reading Rainbow was also in my rotation at this age.

Oh, if two people are going to be wrong, I will step in and set the record straight. The Pinball number Count song is from Sesame Street.

There is even a very recently created online pinball game for it!

And Pentatonix came on and sang it with some interstitial songs that are pretty nice as well, my daughter loves it.

 Well, it's a wonderful tune:).  Interesting how many of us who lived it seemed to mistake it for electric company. Very likely a common closer for sesame street I Believe elec. co. followed it.  And Ya, nod the reading rainbow:)   Not too interested in this sesame street Lego personally to build but good golly could be good for selling. All eyes on it.

Growing up, I could never mistake sesame street for the electric company. Good boys & girls watched sesame street, the electric company was far too edgy.

I just watched The Electric Company hoping Spider-Man would show up on every episode.

The best explanation why there won't be an official The Office set is given here:

It's hilarious how disgusted M&R is about this totally TURD set. :D

The guy should have focused on actually reviewing what is very obviously a very legally-marketed set. Aside from his claims of "this is garbage", "this is trash" and "I don't like it", he does not at all explain WHY it is trash. The only ARGUMENT he really uses is that - from his POV - the manual is too tiny, that's it. The rest is about that he hates everything, never to be explained in any way - super-biased fanboys like him might be the main reason why LEGO is still No.1 in the business despite all their faults in product development, marketing etc.

Woah, yeah, that actually 100% explains why they didn't choose it. That's a pretty great knock off set, the minifigs aren't awesome, but otherwise if it were Lego branded he would probably be screaming about how awesome it is.

Kind of makes me wonder what kind of a licensing deal NBC got out of this group as opposed to what LEGO usually does.  If they're giving really good deals, LEGO may need to change up their business model.

There are groups out there doing military stuff as well.  I've been tempted to get a couple for my son who keeps making tanks.  LEGO won't do war stuff so it's not like it's competition but somehow I can't bring myself to buy non- LEGO.

 

I realize this is a bit off-topic but I'm not going to start a new thread for this.  Curiosity got the better of me and I checked out https://phatmojo.com/.

They also have Ducktales, Star Wars, and Marvel listed as licenses but I can't see what they produce under those licenses.

This is the song / video I remember from Elec. Co.  I do not know if Sesame Street did the same video or not.  Then again, I don't think the song was proprietary so it could have been used by both.

more importantly, a Mr. Rogers set w/ a trolley going through a brick-built  montage of the puppet scenes.  That would be nice.

That could be a whole series.  Mr. Rogers' living room, a trolley set (which I don't think I've seen in LEGO), a castle, tree house, etc. etc. etc.  Minifigures all around, incl Mr. Rogers.
