Remember these? I don't know if Sesame Place still puts coupons on cans, but I certainly love that someone thought to save this!

Souvenir pot holder

Image from eBay

Here is a pot holder featuring Cookie Monster making spaghetti.

The lettering is the same font from the park logo:

This pot holder features the copyright year of 1980, the same year the park opened.

It also mentions Big Bird at the bottom, but he doesn't appear on (at least on this side of) the pot holder.

Papa Twiddlebug, Big Bird and More

Christopher Mercaldo is a fellow theme park buff who designed the amazing logo you see at the top of this blog.

He also has his own theme park blog, Chris Mercaldo's Amusement Blog, which is full of amazing photos of many different theme parks including a couple great posts on Sesame Place.

You can find the posts HERE and HERE.

The posts have wonderful descriptions of a 1993 trip to the park and some great pictures.

One of the photos pictured a giant Big Bird in a nest on display at Mr. Hooper's Emporium:
