Nothing compares to "Sesame Street." I wish more kids today had the temperament and attention span for it (or that more parents had the strength to say no to crap TV).

So, I just thought of a fun question for y'all: Which cartoon character are you most like and why? Post your answer in the "comments" section. C'mon, it'll be FUN!
