Why the Internet Rocks

Every now and then you stumble across something on the Internet that reminds you just how cool it really is. Tonight we came across something that took us right back to our childhoods and we suspect that it will do the same for you.

YouTube plays host to all manner of videos from singing Hoffs to Hypno-Kittys, but we can’t remember the last time we saw the 123 Counting Ball sequence from Sesame Street. Oh, how we loved that ball! Although the alternate ending with the ball being ground to powder is our favorite, this video with its distinct music and intricate set-up put a grin on our faces from ear to ear.

A little more searching revealed other childhood favorites such as the Alligator King, LadyBug Picnic, the surreal journey of the Lost Kid and the classic Pinball Counting Song. A veritable cornucopia of counting that is as fresh in our brains today as it was 25 years ago. We just wanted to share this small discovery with you and hope it makes your day, as it did ours. Enjoy!
