The Indian Sesame Street…Gali Gali Sim Sim

Having had the benefit of getting a chance to sample the best of Indian and American television culture while growing up, I’d have to say that Sesame Street remains as one of the best classic series of my formative years…right up there with He Man and She-Ra, The Smurfs, Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood, Gem and the Hologram, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Star Trek, The Mahabarata series and Santa Barbara (not really meant for children but watched by many). Mix them all together and you arrive in my head. Anyway, I think it’s great that an Indian version of Sesame Street, with characters designed around Indian childhoods is airing on the Cartoon Network.

Bunty the Bee : a mini muppet who Really enjoys his bath (I’m actually inspired to jump in the shower after that one)

Furry red monster who’s afraid of going to the dentist. Cute.

And if you didn’t already know this Sesame Street has been dubbed into tons of different languages. Check out this German version of Burt and Ernie. Its pretty funny. Burt (who has a pigeon fetish) gets pretty excited at the end when he imagines he’s turned into a bird.
