PBS KIDS VIP (Very Involved Parent)It was last May that I first made mention of a Cookie Monster Special that the folks at Sesame Street were cooking up. It was then that I came face-to-face with one of my childhood idols for the very first time, getting to sing a couple verses of "C is For Cookie" with the lovable blue Monster himself.  Today comes word that SESAME STREET: THE COOKIE THIEF will debut on PBS KIDS on February 16, placing Cookie Monster in the wrong place at the wrong time...

PBS KIDS VIPDid Halloween exist in the prehistoric days? While some would say "of course not, Rock Father!" I will say, "absolutely!" DINOSAUR TRAIN: BUDDY'S HALLOWEEN ADVENTURE proves that, bringing four episodes of The Jim Henson Company's hit PBS KIDS series home in one spook-tacular collection that we've been enjoying these past few weeks here at Rock Father HQ. Why do preschoolers find such fascination in both dinosaurs and trains? I don't think that's ever been scientifically-explored, but combining both has been a big win, and adding the year's best holiday into the mix pushes it right to the top for a spot in this year's 31 Days of Halloween here on THE ROCK FATHER.
