I Want a Monster to Be My Friend

Probably the most sexually charged song in the history of children's television. Original & unedited, not the politically correct EnVogue version.

I'm speechless. I don't remember that one. At all. Then again, I totally missed out on Teeny Little Super Guy, too.

I am speechless...I just don't know what to say. It has quite the catchy tune though, doesn't it?

I'm sure you avatar winked at me whilst I was listening to that...

We had this on an LP as kids, and didn't think anything of it. Apparently, some mother did, and thought the words would encourage kids to let adults molest them. The tune was pulled from Sesame Street's roster in the mid 80's, and the song was removed when the Monsters! LP was released on CD. En Vogue did a lame remake for "Elmopalooza" with less dangerous lyrics. The full story can be found on the Muppet Wiki: http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/I_Want_a_Monster_to_Be_My_Friend

The Muppets have a Wiki? Do RSS feed things work for when new wikis are published? I want a Wiki for Christmas, Santa.
