The Ultimate (Vintage) Sesame Street Mashup

Sesame Street Mashup by PogoThis last week, Jim Henson would have been 77 years old, and there have been lots of lovely tributes to the man who shaped so many childhoods. Brian Jay Jones, a celebrated biographer, published Jim Henson: The Biography. The 608-page book took five years to write. I cannot wait to dive in!

One of the most beautiful things I have seen online is the Muppet Mash created by the artist Pogo. This Sesame Street Mashup had me so emotional with nostalgia. I love how he turned such familiar moments into something new and fresh, and it didn’t feel like a memory had been betrayed. It made me crave old episodes of Sesame Street, the ones with Kermit the Frog as an intrepid reporter interviewing children as “kids on the street.”

Pogo says the piece is “a composition of music, voices and sounds from Sesame Street.” The sound artist has become famous for these beautiful and thoughtful mashups. Pogo (real name Nick Bertke) says, “It’s about pulling together a patchwork of those little sounds that just resonate with me somehow. It’s creating a language that encapsulates my love for a film, for a game, for a person. It’s like catching a wave, once you are on it, you are on it.”
