Celebrating Sesame Street at Runde’s!

“Sunny day – Sweepin’ the clouds away,
On my way to where the air is sweet.
Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sesame Street…”Sure, it’s right across the Julien Dubuque bridge!  Assuming your coming from Dubuque, just take the first right after you get off the bridge, take a right at the stop sign then go until you see Runde Chevrolet  to your left and you are there – where all the happy people meet.

Runde’s has been all about Sesame Street – especially recently. The production 123 Sesame Street Live is coming to the Five Flags Center in Dubuque, IA. November 24th and 25th and Runde’s is supporting the production along with the Telegraph Herald.

To get in the atmosphere of Sesame Street and to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Sesame Street, I went around our Chevrolet store to see who everyone’s favorite adorable, grumpy, or hungry puppet was.

 The question was simple, as simple as one… two… three ah-ah-ah:
Who is, or was, your favorite Sesame Street character and why.DSC08315

Ryan Halverson:
 Aloysius Snuffleupagus: He was just the coolest one. No one got to see him except big bird. 



DSC08317Al Gassman:
Oscar: He was a big old grouch!  





Marty Frank:
Ernie: I dunno why, because he’s short, I guess? Yeah definitely Ernie.



DSC08319Christopher “Cheeseburger” Duddeck:
Oscar: I liked him because he was always mad and ticked off.



DonDon McWilliams:
We didn’t even have Sesame Street when I was a kid. I’d have to say the Three-Stooges.
Don, that’s not a Sesame Street character.
Well that’s what I watched.
(((((((We must have told him 1001 times: “No smoking on the premises”))))))))

Elmo! Oh yeah Elmo because my grandkids like him. They have a little Elmo doll – you should see it, it’s really good. 



Troy Muelheip:

Big Bird – He’s the only one I can really remember.

Big Bird





Jeff Schmitt:
Big Bird – I used to watch it a long time ago, I always thought Big Bird was really funny. 





Becky Kuhl
Big Bird: I think Big Bird should be in the spotlight again and Elmo should step aside. I also like Grover.
You got a problem with Elmo?
No! Elmo is pretty funny. I just forgot about Big Bird for awhile and I remembered that he used to be my favorite and now I just don’t know who he even is.

Cookie Monster: I share his passion for cookies. How could you not want a cookie? Everyone wants cookies.




DSC08330Craig Kruser:
Oscar: He makes me laugh I guess. He’s mean like some people I know. 




DSC08338Kurt Larson:
Bert and Ernie: When My brother Kyle and I were little before my younger brother Ryan was born and it was just the two of us Kyle and I were Bert and Ernie.


Sue Hanger:

sue grouch
Oscar: Cuz I like him, and his house!
He lives in a trash can…
Yeah, nice place.
Ok..My vote goes to Count Von Count, but it looks like Big Bird won the popularity vote here at Runde’s. Happy 40th birthday Seasme Street!
