Sesame Street: I Wonder


ERNIE: [SINGING] Sometimes at night, when I look
up high, I see a falling star in the sky. And I wonder how, and I wonder
why, what makes a falling star go by? Why does it fall, and
where does it go? And how does it make
that glittery glow? I’m gonna find out, ’cause
I want to know, and I wonder, I wonder. Sometimes I watch a bumblebee
fly from rose to rose on a day in July. And I wonder how, and I wonder
why, what makes a bumblebee go by? How does he fly, all
covered in fuzz? And why does he make that
buzz that he does? BEE: Yeah. ERNIE: I’m sure it’s more
than just because, and I wonder, I wonder. How does a bunny
hop, hop, hop? And what makes popcorn
pop, pop, pop? Why does the rain fall drop by
drop, and the lightning always come before the thunder? I wonder. Do you ever wonder as you walk
along, what makes a tiny little ant so strong? Does every bird sing
a different song? Do you wonder why? Well, so do I. So do
I. I wonder why.

  • u Facknut i will report ur all videos all milly fans will report ur videos as animal abuse because u start the war with milly u start with us GOT THAT FAT HOBO?!

  • i thought that he was gonna start singing "Just Haven't Met You Yet" by Michael Buble becuz of the melody n stuff….

  • @neocelestia

    I am forty-two and Ernie was one of my favorite growing up! I still have a lot of very fond memories of the show in general and him in particular!

  • @astud218

    You're right…but I still think SS gradually started to implode when Jim passed away…and he would surely raise a stink if he saw what SS has become today — Elmo Street 🙁

  • @sweetlife031

    I will agree that "Sesame Street" did get progressively worse after the passing of Jim. At this stage in the game, I find it almost unwatchable!

  • light is faster than sound Ernie, wait why am i posting this, why am i watching this i'm in high school, oh well while i'm here, ERNIE< GOOGEL IS YOUR FWENED

  • @kdabilis

    I agree that "Sesame Street" is a great show and should be available to children for years to come! I just wish that it could go back to being more like it once was! I find the stuff that they have on now to be quite boring! Especially "Elmo's World"! Now that is not to say that I have anything against the character of Elmo himself.

  • @dafrandle

    The fact that light is faster than sound was the first thing that I thought of when I heard him sing that verse. However, I find your response to be quite humorous!

  • @katzente Definitely prefer classics such as 'I Don't Want to Live on the Moon', but this is cute too. I love Ernie.

  • Yeah, this is pretty darn good for such a new S.S. song. It's not often that I save a clip this new to my favorites, but not often is a long way from never.

  • Every now and then: Sesame Street knocks it out of the park.
    This is such a great tune and my daughter loves it!

    How does he fly all covered in fuzz? …and how does >>>

    Do you ever wonder as you walk along, "What makes a tiny little ant so strong?"
    Does every bird sing a different song? Do you wonder why?
    Well, so do I.
    So do I.

  • @Numfarh I guess it is, but in a way, it just takes the mystery and wonder out of the whole song.

  • @MikeslyMontague Well he'll be shocked at how some of the answers are shockingly more dull than he thought.

  • @MarshalGrover I get it Marshal, but Bert and Ernie are a team, they always manage to sing together somehow. also "I wonder" If Steve Whitmire is busy with the muppets why don't they hire an alternate?
    I was thinking either Rick Lyon or Artie Esposito (no offense to SW) I'm sure one of them could do a decent Ernie voice.

  • @muppetlover16 Uh, no. Why would they do that? "One Muppet. One Voice." Rick Lyon doesn't even work for the show anymore.

  • @MarshalGrover I know that Marshal, I was just making a suggestion, I know Rick doesn't work on SS anymore but I wish hedid, besides the man's been gone for 15 years, and Steve Whitmire has such a limited schedule, we haven't heard from John Tartaglia, so are we just going to let Ernie fade into obscurity? hmm? I say bring in Artie Esposito, if he can do Kermit why not Ernie?

  • @amazinglyuncreative
    Good for you, but you failed to see the point. He's instigating the need to question, and if we do so, instead of feeding children with false beliefs and bullshit on every corner we might be putting our feet in mars in a near future.

  • @StudPuppetsInc Sorry, I understand but I think the Rickster doesn't get enough recognition, if it annoys you just tell me so don't rant like MarshalGrover does

  • @StudPuppetsInc I'll tell you why he don't get the respect he deserves, it's for three reasons
    1. Elmo is eating up the entire show, Kevin Clash like RL is talented but he has so many other characters than the little red menace.
    2. I think it wasn't Rick's personal choice to leave, he quit because Joe Mazzarino fired him.
    3. That lecherous leech of a songwriter, Jeff Marx seduced him with promises of fame and fortune, and Rick sold his soul for it, which is why he moved away to NJ

  • @StudPuppetsInc I heard somewhere Jeff Marx worked for SS's music department, but he was fired for being too "uppity" so JM fired him, I think that happened with Rickly too, and thus Marx,Lopez and Lyon created Avenue Q as revenge on CTW, heck they shoulda called it "How to rip off Sesame Street and make lotsa money without even trying"

  • @StudPuppetsInc OH YES THERE IS, my Youtube friends antsampthompson9, Angie2343, and I have formed the Lovers of Lyon coalition, and we will do what ever it takes to get Rick Lyon to work on SS again, even if we have to fly to New Jersey and beg him to come back…will YOU join the coalition? and combat the evil that is political correctness? If not you are anti-Lyon like my nemesis medopaul1000

  • @StudPuppetsInc Relax man I didn't mean all that stuff I said, that's just one of my many dramatic speeches for "Lovers of Lyon" I don't hate you, and I definately don't wanna bother that poor old man (Rick is probably in his late 50's now) I'm sure he enjoys living in New Jersey, but if he had the chance he'd probably say "I don't have time for Sesame Street, but if that's what you really want…then OK!

  • @muppetlover16 Well, i think you need to stop giving your dramatic speeches. People will think you're insane. I DO think you're insane. So… yeah. Just a heads up.

  • @DoujinGetter thats not it at all
    sesame street tests sesame street with younger audiences and studies show that kids nowadays like elmo and murray more than the count and oscar and bert and ernie

  • There's value in wondering. This is song is great for encouraging that sense of wonder in children. It's too often crushed in the educational system – not intentionally, but because of time constraints, kids needing to "learn for the standardized tests" so schools don't lose funding, having to obey the school bells and move on when they ring – even though they still want to learn more about the subject…

    Teaching (or, rather, allowing) kids to wonder and find information is crucial.

  • I'm 23 but my niece loves Sesame Street and I end up falling in love with all the songs and need to listen to them randomly haha … this is quite a deep song

  • As a child of the 80's, I can appreciate the throwback of a sensitive, sort of, 'inner thought' approach to songs on Sesame Street. I find Ernie to be too animated in this video and I'd rather his voice didn't move up and down so much. Nice song. 🙂

  • I find it hilarious that the same guy who wrote Stacy's mom wrote this song hahaha look up Adam Schlesinger.

  • What a great song after graduation! School makes you wonder a lot of things and you find out by learning them! Boy, some people in my school don’t have wonder because they don’t like school as much as me. I sometimes show wonder at school! Don’t you?
