The Natural Hair Muppet is BACK!

Back in 2010, a little curly ‘froed Muppet on Sesame Street stole my heart and made the rounds of every hair blog on the internet. Who can forget that adorable natural haired Muppet who sang I Love My Hair?

Back in 2010, many of us publicly expressed concern that our little Muppet sistren would be relegated to background appearances, or even worse, wouldn’t appear any more at all. I’m so happy to report that isn’t the case.

It took a year, but YAY! The natural haired Muppet is BACK with a brand new song! Via Huffington Post:

The song is written by Joey Mazzarino, the show’s head writer. He penned last year’s “Hair” song for his then-five year old daughter Segi, whom he and his wife adopted from Ethiopia when she was one. The character is clearly inspired by the little girl, and it’s touching to see a father give his daughter such a great pep talk in such a creative and public way.

“Sesame Street” just started an anti-bullying campaign, too, working to encourage kids from a young age to be accepting of everyone.

The new song is catchier IMO, and just as cute and inspiring!

I found it interesting that this video is getting negative comments on YouTube, when the concept of the song reminds me SO much of a classic Sesame Street song I have long loved, which dates back to the golden era of Children’s Television Workshop.

We Love Fine still has super cute I Love My Hair tees for sale, and now Sesame Street came up with a super cool new feature — Kinect Sesame Street allows kids to actually be inside and move around in the world that Grover, Elmo, and Big Bird inhabit. How awesome is THAT?

What do you think of the new natural hair Muppet song, bellas? Here’s hoping for more songs (and not a whole year till the next one)!

  1. I love this lol

  2. While I too was a Sesame Street junkie growing up, I’m rather scared by muppets today. My kids are mixed on this one. The 3 y/o loved it and wanted to watch it over and over again. My 11 y/o thought the puppet was ugly and couldn’t sing. I thought it was wonderful to see all the beautiful possibilities on that baby muppet’s head.

  3. Listening to that old seaseme street song brought back so many memories!!! I love the new song and it’s important. My area lost 3 kids and a teacher to suicide in the last year. After the kids suicides the teacher couldn’t deal and followed. Kids need this.

  4. I love the message it’s saying. Women are equal and have so much to offer this world. Little girls need to know their options in life. As always love http://www.womenaregamechangers.com.

    Is the video on women a new one or is that the classic video you were referring to?

  6. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.
    I consider something truly interesting about your site so I saved to fav.
