There is no way that you can hit snooze and still be able to do so with the Pandora Alarm Clock. Turn the thing off and just as you start to fall back to sleep, it will issue noises and, as you open your eyes, it plays animation on your ceiling to berate you about what you should be doing rather than hanging in bed.

About the closest it gets to Sesame Street is its naughty Happy Tree Friends. The error has since been corrected, but it certainly makes you wonder why it wasn’t discovered when it was originally posted.
