Ode to an Orange

I like to consider myself MJL’s resident Jim Henson expert (though Matthue frequently tries to steal my title). Loyal blog readers may remember my aspirations to earn a Ph.D. in Muppetology.

So imagine my joy when I saw our latest episode of The Adventures of Todd and God and, after a bit of research, found an extended ode to Sesame Street.


Todd and God Rosh Hashanah Video
In our video God, in the form of an orange, slowly prepares for the singing of two brakhot by adoring himself like an opera singer.

The scene mimics a classic Sesame Street short where an orange prepares herself to sing an operatic rendition of Carmen.

It’s truly beautiful.
