Childhood Memory: Monsterpiece Theater, “Gone with the Wind”

When I was a small child, this Sesame Street segment scared me to tears. (Ironically, I ended up loving Margaret Mitchell’s Gone with the Wind so much as a teenager that I read it at least ten times over.)

Today I’m watching this clip in honor of Hurricane Sandy.

  1. Cookie looked like he was thinking about eating that sheep for a second there at the end! I don’t remember this one. The yipyipyip aliens always scared me when I was little, though I don’t know why.

    1. Thank you!! It was a nerve-wracking 24 hours or so, but we’re safe and sound, with only minimal damage to our place, and our family and friends are all doing well. I feel terrible for those who were less fortunate in and around NYC!

  2. How could I have missed this odd GWTW tribute?? Love the pig swinging from the chandelier! Cookie did look hungry…
