19 April 2006 — Sesame Street Video Clips (609)

Update: Foldedspace reader Dennis has found a popularly-requested video. Here's Loaf of bread, a container of milk and a stick of butter. Thanks, Dennis!

Update #2: Dutch has posted a bunch of YouTube clips for toddlers, including what seems to be additional Sesame Street clips. Right-click and open in a new tab, folks. You'll want to go there next...



I state quite confidently that this is the best entry I've made in five years of weblogging. Go away if you have work things to get done. This is an enormous time-waster.

Below you'll find a fantastic collection of Sesame Street video clips. These are great. I remember many of these from when I was a kid. I've tried to organzize them as best I can. If you know of more Muppet/Sesame Street clips, please let me know.

Let's start with a song we all know by heart: "one two three FOUR five, six seven eight NINE ten, eleven twelve..."

Next we have a random selection of number and alphabet clips, as well as random skits:
Letters versus numbers.
Telephone rock
Look at this
The alligator king and his seven sons
Yakety yak
I remember liking this one as a kid: sounds
My martian cutie (number nine)
Jake the snake — body parts
King Minus
Fishing for the alphabet
Animal department store elevator
Song about riding the subway.
The rhyming song
Count it higher
Robert DeNiro imagines he's Elmo (the spawn of Satan)
For Kris: the mad goat
Funny farm
The ladybug picnic
The number painter (and Stockard Channing! — I always loved this)
Mahna Mahna
We all live in a capital I
Choosing a national bird (hilarious!)
The villain in the panama hat

How about a collection of popular songs done Sesame Street-style?
Johnny Cash and Big Bird: Don't Take Your Ones to Town"
R.E.M. and the Monsters: "Furry Happy Monsters"
Stevie Wonder: "1-2-3"
Ray Charles (and Patrick Stewart?!?): The Alphabet Song"
The Beetles: "Letter B"
Norah Jones (and that spawn of Satan, Elmo): "Don't Know Y"
"Born to Add" (minus Bruce Springsteen)

For Jeff — the 'yip yip' Martians:
The Martians meet a telephone
The Martians meet a computer

Guy Smiley
The Remembering Game
Beat the Time
Mystery Guest

Oscar
It's Not Easy Being Green
I Love Trash

Grover
Grover is surprised
Grover examines Kermit's teeth
Grover's echo
Grover takes a bath
Grover takes a day off
Grover goes to bed
Grover the waiter: big or small?
The monster in the mirror
Grover and the butterfly

Cookie Monster
Disco Cookie
Casey McPhee
C is for Cookie!
Cookie Monster raps about healthy food (boo! sell-out!)
The mystery box (with Kermit)
Rhyming (with Kermit)
Cookie steals Ernie's cupcakes
Cookie steals Ernie's pillow
Cookie and Ernie sing about D
One of these things is not like the other
Eatin' Cookie (a parody of "Makin' Whoopee")
Six cookies
Monsterpiece Theater: Chariots of Fur
Monsterpiece Theater: The King and I
Monsterpiece Theater: Twelve Angry Men

My favorite has always been Kermit
It's Not Easy Being Green
A-B-C-D-E-F-Cookie Monster (very, very cute)
The mystery box (with Cookie Monster)
Rhyming (with Cookie Monster)
Muppet News Flash: Santa Claus
Muppet News Flash: The Six Dollar Man

Muppet News Flash: The Wrong Seven Dwarves

And now for the grand finale, a collection of Bert and Ernie videos!

Bert can't sleep
Bert and Ernie remember (and can't sleep).
The 'la la la' song (This is a classic.)
Bert is locked out

Ernie and the chocolate cake
Ernie and Bert at the beach
Ernie goes rock hunting
Bert and Ernie explore a pyramid
Bert's brother, Bart
Ernie quizzes Bert
Bert and Ernie play tag
Ernie breaks the cookie jar
Ernie has a banana in his ear (One of my all-time favorites.)
Bert and Ernie and the ice cream man
Bert and the National Association of W Lovers
Cookie steals Ernie's cupcakes
Cookie steals Ernie's pillow
Cookie and Ernie sing about D
Rubber Duckie!
Ernie and Lefty
Lefty and the painting
The broken ukelele
Natalie Portman (hubba and hubba) and Elmo (spawn of Satan) play the princess and the elephant

And, finally, the Muppet tribute to Jim Henson: Just One Person.


If you love these video clips, check out the complete first season of The Muppet Show, which is now available on DVD. (Also, this Songs From the Street boxed set features many of the songs above. Teach your children the songs you love!)

After watching some of these, I groused about Bert: "Bert is so lame. Who likes Bert?" "I like Bert," mumbled Kris. "Why? How can you possibly like Bert?" I asked. Kris was firm: "Bert is sensible." I just shook my head.

[all of this madness is via Metafilter, of course]

On this day at foldedspace.org

2007A Frustrating Phone Call   In which I don't have a medium box.

2004How Did We Get Here?   In which I share the notes and research I made on 9/11 and the days following, and I try to explain how these things occurred. A great discussion ensues.

2001Lord of the Thing   In which there's a Lord of the Rings movie in production, and I'm worried that it's not going to be very good.

I LOVE the 'yip-yip' martians. Also Bert & Ernie - way, way ahead of their time.

The first link goes to the Stevie Wonder song, not the pinball number song. I found the pinball number song here: http://www.devilducky.com/media/41257/

The reason I went to look it up is because in all these years of listening to it (and knowing it by heart) I never actually "heard" the emphasis on FOUR and NINE and when you wrote it up that way, I just *had* to go listen again. I always heard it as a pause after, but not an emphasis on those numbers... in fact, I would have said the emphasis was on the FIVE and TEN if you'd asked.

I made Chris listen to it, and when asked, he hears the emphasis where you do.


On 19 April 2006 (10:33 AM), J.D. said:

That Chris is a good man.

I went back and fixed the link to the correct YouTube video. Thanks for digging up the DevilDucky link.

I'm trying to find time today to watch all the Bert and Ernies. I love 'em!


On 19 April 2006 (10:42 AM), J.D. said:

I love the Bert's brother Bart clip. It's hilarious.

I found a couple of new ones that are worth checking out: Sherlock Hemlock and the missing chicken salad sandwich and the two-headed monster reads a story.


On 19 April 2006 (11:12 AM), Greg said:

Wow. What a great post.

But...

Where's "The Count?"


On 19 April 2006 (11:53 AM), Amy Jo said:

Poor Bert--I guess someone has to carry the burden of sensibility.


On 19 April 2006 (01:00 PM), John said:

Thank you, J.D.!!


On 19 April 2006 (05:44 PM), joanne said:

Were you able to find the kitten princess skit? I just remember white kittens. It would make my day if you could find it.


On 19 April 2006 (07:36 PM), Joanne said:

I have issues with Oscar. I used to have nightmares of Oscar growing up. He would drive around in a corvette looking for kids around Barlow Rd., and kill them. - of course I was the only one outside.
I think Gordon and Maria are still on the show - they look amazing - they've hardly aged.
Thanks for today's entry.
Did you watch The Electric Company? Remember Letter Man?


On 19 April 2006 (08:06 PM), Jeff said:

Ernie and Cookie Monster are the best Sesame Street characters ever -- that Bert is such a dork.


On 19 April 2006 (09:03 PM), Jeff said:

Noah and I just watched a bunch of the clips. I gave him the option to choose whichever character he wanted to watch -- he only wanted to watch clips with Ernie and Cookie Monster... what a good kid! :-)

On a side note, I think 'Ernie breaks the cookie jar' has to be about my all-time favorite... it is just classic Ernie.


On 19 April 2006 (10:48 PM), neilio said:

Amazing stuff - thanks so much for sharing.

I know you're probably not doing requests, but do you (or does anyone) have the "Fat cat sat on the mat!" beatnik skit? That's possibly one of my favourites...


On 20 April 2006 (12:05 AM), Lorraine said:

This is the best post EVER. Thank you, thank you, thank you!


On 20 April 2006 (07:29 AM), Amanda said:

Cool!!! Thanks!


On 20 April 2006 (07:30 AM), J.D. said:

Joanne forwarded a link to the video she was looking for, Number Two Dollhouse; Jeff has requested that I track down the clip in which Ernie eats all of the pizza; and I'm keeping my eye out for the "fat cat sat on the mat" clip. Any other requests?


On 20 April 2006 (08:49 AM), Steve said:

Thanks so much for putting this up! I'm a new Dad and am flashing back to earlier days.
Did you find the Pigeon song that Ernie does? That is probably my favorite Sesame street song.


On 20 April 2006 (09:36 AM), Dan Coulter said:

[Editorial deadspace added by J.D. because URLs break the sidebar.] You forgot my favorite, Teeny Little Super Guy.


On 20 April 2006 (11:13 AM), Greg said:

After an exhaustive search -- ;) -- I found one clip of The Count counting apples with some Cookie Monster hijinx.


On 20 April 2006 (11:38 AM), Ewan Grantham said:

As far as requests go, I would LOVE to see the bit where Bert goes on a trip, and so the Count comes over to keep Ernie company. The Count begins to count sheep, and in the end Ernie comes out looking rather wild - one of the few times that Ernie ends up on the short end of the stick.


On 20 April 2006 (11:44 AM), Joel said:

Oh man, great entry. Those martians with the telephone? The ones that go "Yip yip yip, uh-huh uh-huh"? Simultaneously fascinating and disturbing to my young self. Still kind of are.


On 20 April 2006 (06:06 PM), April said:

Thanks for this! My daughter and I just watched a bunch. You must have put a lot of work into it!
Here is one more:
King of Eight


On 20 April 2006 (08:15 PM), Munkey said:

Great list! Has anyone got a clip of Cecile the Orange with a rubber band mouth that sang the opera Carmen ? It was a stop motion animation clip.


On 21 April 2006 (06:58 AM), Mookie said:

Being the father of a 17-month-old little girl, I watch Sesame Street every single day. It's still the best educational program on television.

Thanks for compiling this great list!


On 21 April 2006 (01:25 PM), Ulrike said:

Mahna Mahna is actually a skit from The Muppet Show.

(Not that I mind.)


On 21 April 2006 (03:09 PM), Dan Coulter said:

Does anyone know where "Me and My Llama" can be found?


On 21 April 2006 (09:56 PM), Andy said:

How about "I remember!! I remember !! A loaf of bread, a container of milk, and a stick of butter....." ???? That one always killed me.........


On 22 April 2006 (04:11 PM), Michael Niederman said:

Any chance anyone can find "Roosevelt Franklin"? That's a favorite of mine from the show.


On 22 April 2006 (08:24 PM), swampking said:

How about James Taylor singing the Jelly song....THAT's a classic!!


On 22 April 2006 (08:45 PM), ocB said:

oh this was just great! thanks for sharing :)


On 23 April 2006 (09:08 AM), dudedude said:

"Go away if you have work things to get done"

dude: reading just that made me start to work down the list you provided, the least i can do now is to keep up with you...

cheers!

Mahna Mahna isn't from Sesame Street. It's from The Muppet Show.


On 24 April 2006 (08:31 PM), James said:

The "Yip Yip" Martians scene with the telephone has lived in my memory for so many years. I never thought I would see it again, but having seen it, it's even better than I remember. Wow. Priceless.


On 25 April 2006 (06:50 AM), Leonard said:

Ok, this is truly awesome!!! Just one missing that I'm DYING to see again: Ernie singing "I Don't Want To Live On The Moon"!!!! I'm a 26 y/o guy, and when I think about that song, I still get kinda misty eyed! My seven year old loves it now, and we have it on cd, but I'd LOVE to show her the video if anyone can find it! Thanks!!!


On 25 April 2006 (07:08 AM), Courtney said:

Oh, the memories!! I was watching Family Guy the other night, and they did a take-off on the pinball numbers song that absolutely killed me. I love it!

If anyone can find the "Gimme Five" song, where all the Sesame Street men, in tuxes, do their best Temptations impression singing about the number five. It's bilingual!

I have to agree with Andy that the "Loaf of bread" cartoon was great! When I was a kid, I thought he was saying "A potato and milk" instead of a CONTAINER of milk. My sisters and I still joke about that.


On 25 April 2006 (07:17 AM), Chris said:

Talk about a trip down memory lane. That was a blast. Thanks.


On 25 April 2006 (07:31 AM), April said:

I'd also love to have the song 'Me and my Llama'


On 25 April 2006 (08:25 AM), kalisah said:

I'm probably a little older than you, b/c I remember classic pop songs like "Up, up & Away" and "Yellow Submarine" but what about the muppets and our favorite geometric shape singing Huey Lewis's "It's Hip to be a Square"??


On 25 April 2006 (10:24 AM), Corie said:

What a great site, but what about Madeline Kahn doing "sing a song"? And where's the count?


On 25 April 2006 (11:10 AM), Brenda said:

I know what we're doing at our house this weekend! Can't wait! Thank you! Thank you! THANK YOU!

Say, does any one remember Ernie singing "Everybody Wash"? I don't remember seeing it on the show, but we had the song on a Sesame Street album (vinyl, of course).

There is a version of Ernie & Shawn Colvin singing "I don't want to live on the moon" on the Elmopalooza video. Despite your feelings about the red guy, it's not a bad video. After all, Jon Stewart hosts! Lots of guest artists. Chris Rock even has a bit. Praire Dawn (could be wrong on the name - not enough caffeine yet today) also is in the show. To my mind, she's old school like Roosevelt Franklin.

Thanks again!


On 25 April 2006 (12:37 PM), katherine said:

Thanks, these are great. I thought it was "a potato OF milk" when I was little and I always thought what in the WORLD is a potato of milk?


On 25 April 2006 (12:55 PM), jen said:

I've been trying to find a clip of the "Milk" song. the only word in the song is "milk", sung over and over again, while a baby cries for her bottle, as a milk truck driver is frantically trying to get to the house in time to quiet the screaming baby. drama at it's finest, a true classic!!


On 25 April 2006 (01:05 PM), Jenn said:

Another request, what about the version of "Stop hey what's that sound, everybody look what's going down" as a song teaching you to look both ways before crossing the street?

And another fan of the yip-yip martians here!


On 25 April 2006 (04:49 PM), Mark Savela said:

Great list. I would love to see the loaf of bread.
Also, would be great to see Grover as the waiter, or the guy who goes into the music store to buy a trumpet and mimes it. The sales guy keeps bringing back the wrong instrument.
CLASSIC


On 25 April 2006 (05:05 PM), Sara said:

How about W for Wilhamena!

And I can't find any information on a clip that said "My name is Fred, they call me Fred" and can't remember the rest


On 25 April 2006 (06:33 PM), Tamra said:

You're awesome! My kids (and husband) think I'm so lame because I'm still the biggest Sesame Street fan in the household. So what! I'll keep watching and listening. At least my husband did buy the Muppet Show Season 1 DVD and we all enjoy it so much.

Thanks for the links!

On 25 April 2006 (11:17 PM), Patrick said:

Thanks for all the great clips. Have been looking for the clip of the Orange that sings the "Habanera" from the opera Carmen. Was always one of my favorites.


On 25 April 2006 (11:50 PM), Shana said:

I'd love to see "Muppets Rhyme in School" (rose rhymes with nose...). Also, any "Teeny Little Super-Guy" clips would be appreciated. Thanks for putting this together!


On 27 April 2006 (08:31 AM), Harry said:

You have no idea how long I have waited to see such a list. These are all really good. I am missing a few favorites though. "Lower Case n standing on a hill", the "D Song" with the dolls and dragons, the "O Song (o-o-o-o)", "G-Grover, G-George", "Everybody Sleeps", and "Muppet News flash with the Three Pigs". I could go on and on. I have a 9 year old and we will be taking a trip through time over the weekends until we have seen them all. I have the Muppets at home. These are just glorious icing on the cake. Thanks again. Keep them coming.


On 27 April 2006 (06:25 PM), Chad said:

Wow, so many great memories here...The Number 3 Painter, and the Six Dollar Man (that one scared the crap out of me as a kid--why??)
All the comments bring back great memories too...the Singing Loaf of Bread, the "Milk" song, and one of the best..W-W-W-Willamina!!!

Thanks for this awesome list.


On 27 April 2006 (07:07 PM), Lisa said:

Great post! It has been years since I've seen some of these. Is it my imagination, or is the Number 3 Painter the same guy who played the British neighbour on The Jeffersons?


On 27 April 2006 (09:35 PM), Fish said:

Awesome! Awesome! Bring back many fond memories of when I was a lad. And now that I am a dad myself, I love them all (old and new) all over again. But how can you not have the Goo-Goo Dolls with Elmo singing "Pride" (to the tune of Slide). I know Elmo rubs many people the wrong way and I can understand that- but he has his high points too.


On 28 April 2006 (06:59 PM), SHARON BECKERLE said:

wow what great and i really bad memory. I loved the show sesame street as a kid. I still have soem music (including for fans of rosevelt franklin) from sesame street as a kid. I'm putting soem music on my i pod so if anybody is interested i might be able to send soem music over to whomever is interested. the only bad thing about this site iss that fact that sammy the snake is on it.as a child i had mightmares about that Sssstupid,s sssilly ssssserphant. evn after ssseing that clip again issstill get nightaressss.
my personal favorite is the casey mcphee clip i still get cockles in my tummy seeing cookie monster eating that avalance. and that number three clip is great it was one of my favorites. and with almost forty years later sesame street is still going strong. may this show continue to live for at least one more generation of children Jim henson would want it that way.


On 29 April 2006 (12:54 AM), Brad said:

Thanks you for posting these and bringing back some awesome memories!!! I'm shocked & amazed to hear that someone else remembers the "Milk...MI-ILK...milk" skit with the baby crying and the milk truck. I was starting to think this was a figment of my early imagination! Also, does anyone remember the Native American (?) guy who could play this little twangy-sounding stringed instrument he put in his mouth? Or how about the type-writer that rolled around (in the void?) humming "doo doo doo, doo doo"? God bless Mr. Hooper!


On 01 May 2006 (08:55 AM), Leah said:

So fun! What about "a loaf of bread, a quart of milk, and a stick of butter"?

Desperately seeking the Opera Singing Orange clip! I've Googled my brains out to no avail! Not only was it my most favorite clip, but it was also the scariest.

Thanks!

theyre probably gonna yank them all, now that theyre rounded up and pointed out like this.

posts like this basically have to be kept amongst friends....


On 04 May 2006 (08:47 PM), Katharine said:

These are great! I actually saw a lot of them the other day when I did my own search for Bert singing the Bedtime (or was it Naptime?) song. I didn't have any luck finding that one -- anyone know where I can find it?


On 05 May 2006 (01:06 PM), Mike said:

Fantastic collection — thanks for putting this together.

Here's one of my favorite old-school Sesame Street sketches, which features two Muppets talking about shapes:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bOfyAA7vcy0

"Do you know what a square is?"
"I know who a square is!"


On 05 May 2006 (02:05 PM), Mark said:

Sara, I remember that Fred song too..

"My name is Fred, they call me Fred, and every night when I get tired I go to... duh..."

And that seems to be all I can remember.


On 05 May 2006 (03:02 PM), Matthew said:

Does anyone remember a short animated piece that used to appear occasionally on Sesame Street? I swear it had Philip Glass music/singing (a la Koyaanisqatsi) as a soundtrack. On a black background it showed a wonderful geometric animation of circles being drawn within circles. Hypnotic.

I wonder if I'm crazy.

Hi there!
Im writing a paper on the family and kinship and am using Sesame Street as an example of a show that promoted community in the 1970s.
I used to be a huge fan of the show as a child but now live in countries where it isnt broadcast anymore.
Your insight would be very helpful in terms of how the show has changed and if it still gives great importance to the whole family beyond blood ties (like in "Follow that Bird" Maria gives a speech in the end about how it doesnt matter if youre a grouch or a bird etc they all support each other on the street and they are ultimately his "real" family).
Anyway, I wont go into anymore detail. Let me know if you need me to clarify anthing. Thank you for your time :)

On 09 May 2006 (12:18 AM), Claire said:

Oh my goodness. Thank you so much for posting all of these! In the past few days I have become completely obsessed with Sesame Street all over again! I've watched basically every single sketch that's on YouTube... thank you so much! This is fantastic! I must admit that there are quite a few that I remember that I have yet to find, but I'll keep looking as well. Thanks again!

Me and My Llama - I love this segment. It was always one of my favorites. Does anyone know or have the video or where I can find it? There are T-shirts and the lyrics but I can't seem to find the video. Help!


On 12 May 2006 (07:06 PM), PCandPetunia said:

I love this site! I am so dissapointed in today's Sesame Street. I want to make a video for my kids to watch of the "good old days". How can I download these videos? Also, have you come accross the "There's a Hole in The Bucket" skit? That was one of my favorites! Thanks!


On 12 May 2006 (11:23 PM), Tara said:

I LOVE THIS! I've been looking for clips like these forever! I wonder if anyone can find "Me and My Llama" where that little girl takes her Llama to the dentist in NYC. Or that one animated clip about the seasons, summer, autum, winter, and spring where the flowers are growing and stuff. Is there any way to download these clips to my Ipod?


On 15 May 2006 (11:02 AM), kallie said:

I am also looking for "Me and My Llama". I would LOVE to see that one again!
Great site:) I am a nanny, and I watch a lot of sesame street videos, but you just can't beat the originals. They are too great.


On 15 May 2006 (11:09 AM), Saill said:

When my daughter was about two or three she had a "friend" named Harry who only called her on the phone. Pretty much every time she saw a phone she would pretend it was ringing and pick it up and say "Oh, HellOOOH Harry!"

It was several months before I discovered that she had seen the awesome Sesame Street cartoon where the lady's about to feed her cat when the phone rings and she picks it up and says "Oh, HellOOOH Harriet!".

I would be very grateful to anyone who has that cartoon!


On 15 May 2006 (11:11 AM), J.D. said:

By populare request, I am going to attempt to track down "Me and My Lllama". I don't remember the skit, but many of you do...

OMG!!!! I LOVE THIS!!!!

I'm 36 and never had any children, but I still find myself singing (in my head) stuff like "Lady Bug Picnic" and "1,2,3,FOUR,5,6,7,8,NINE,10,11,Tweellllve!

OK, I'm weird, I know :)

Anyway, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS SITE!!!!!

Most of these clips brought back fond, fond memories for me and I can't thank you enough, how great it was to see these again!!! I have been searching for YEARS to find a site like this one. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!!

FANTASTIC SITE!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm from Sydney, Australia, but we grew up with Sesame Street over here as well!

Was at a camp a couple of weeks ago where they had some Llama's running around and it brought "Me and my Llama" flooding back to memory! Would LOVE to see that again if it can be found!

It was mentioned in an earlier post that "Me and my Llama" t shirts can be found ... any hints where? (have searched with no luck ...)

I remember a video clip from Sesame Street back in the 70s of a bunch of animals and people scratching an itch and the main part of the song goes "Ooo Ah Ooo, I got an itch! Ooo Ah Ooo, I got an itch!" Anyone remember that, or where it can be found? I'd LOVE to see that again. My cousin and I would LAUGH SO HARD, it was our favorite segment of Sesame Street but I haven't seen it since before I was 10 yrs old. I'm 36 now.

Hey, anyone remember that Sesame Street short with the guy with the up and down remote control that makes stuff go up and down and eventually topples London Bridge? I'd like to download that one.

After what seems like hours of scouring the internet, I cannot find a clip for the "Loaf of Bread, Quart (Container) of Milk, Stick of Butter" Cartoon. It is making me want to scratch my eyes out in frustration! Even an Mp3 or picture would help. How across the entire internet is this not readily available?! If anyone has any clue, could you give me one? I have exhausted all of my resources. Sesame Street might be the best thing ever. Thanks.

A million THANK YOUS! THANK YOU THANK YOU
Now does anyone remember the Ernie and Bert sketch where Ernie wakes up, can't find Bert and thinks martians have kidnapped him but Bert was just fixing oatmeal? "Oatmeal! Yip Yip Yip"

So fun! What about "a loaf of bread, a quart of milk, and a stick of butter"?

OMG! I remember that one! Thanks for the clips! I just had a lovely walk down memory lane.

I would also love to see the clip with the orange with the rubber band mouth singing Carmen. Another one I remember, and this is about 30 years ago, so pardon my fuzzy memory, is a stop-motion clip of lots of beans (like pinto beans) marching. That one was very strange, and didn't have much dialogue, other than the sounds of the beans marching along in formation.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! The number song has been stuck in my head for at least 25 years. I seem to remember one skit where the little Muppet guy was singing about finding the exit sign but it was there all along. Can you try to track that one down? I, still to this day, laugh out loud thinking about the exit guy.

What happened to the Number Two Dollhouse video you have linked?? That was my all time favorite as I had those same dolls when I was little....I STILL have those dolls as a matter of fact. This site is awesome...the only drawback is there just aren't enough clips to satisfy my trip down memory lane. Sesame Street is the best kids programming ever produced...EVER!! I watched it faithfully as a child and now get to watch it again with my own 3 kids. Is there any way to save these clips to our own systems?

I thought of some more......

Anything with Oscar's worm - "Slimey"

Fire! Fire!....(big industrial fire), at the end they say "The Fire's Out", the fire's out, the fire's OUT!

Weird deep tone piano with running ostriges (that one used to SCARE ME!)

"B"....Butterfly!!.....BLEAH!!

Sinister Sam wants to know "Y"

I'm making soup today (mom & kid go to the store)

It's eleven o'clock, time to wake up...it's a lovely eleven morning

Counting in Spanish (kinda like a kaliedescope thing)

Construction alphabet - a guy singing in the lunch box

"Ug" & "Me-Wannum"......"Indians don't talk like that"

.....I wish I knew how to post clips

Still looking for the Number 2 doll house link but I found this note about it

Cheryl Henson
Vice President of the Jim Henson Company

For my third birthday my father built a dollhouse that looked like the house where we lived—a 300-year-old farmhouse. I loved that gift because my father made it himself. It was cool having a house for our dolls that so closely resembled our own house. My sister Lisa and I played with our favorite dolls in that dollhouse. My father made a film for Sesame Street featuring the dollhouse and the number 2. The film included two little girls, two little dolls, and two little cats in a little dollhouse.
So Jim Henson built that little doll house too. What an amazing man.

(P.S. found this site at work today when - wait for it - I was abusing company internet facilities! In Australia we too miss and love the "Real" Sesame Street. The humour, the cheerful (sometimes depressing - think Lower Case N) ditties. Classic stuff. My poor kids don't have any concept of how much laughter this show contained.

Milk, where is it, was about the process of milk being made, a hustling milkman getting the milk to a crying baby.
Roosevelt Franklin, elementary school. Where is it? I can remember in the early days he was very prominent on the show, then nothing.
My name is Fred, they call me Fred, and every night when I get tired I go to, uhhh(soft voice Bed) yeah bed.
still waiting for a new link to the number 2 dollhouse, and where is hard working dog?

Captain Vegetable
The movie about how they make crayons
Me and My Llama (my mom and I still sing that one to each other and have for years)
And one I'm surprised nobody mentioned--when Cookie Monster goes to the library and asks for cookies:
"We don't HAVE any cookies! Just books!"
Punchline: "Then me want a BOOK about cookies...and a glass of milk." Classic!

One thing I've been hoping to find for a while is the Bert and Ernie sketch where the TV is broken and only shows the letter H, which they discover is because it's all crammed with a bunch of things that start with H.

The TV just sits there making this rising and falling hum, with the letter H fading in and out, and this monotone, creepy voice just keeps repeating, "H.... H.... H...." Freaked me the heck out when I was five.

On 07 September 2006 (11:05 AM), Phil said:

Also, I've been looking for two pieces of incidental music from Sesame Street for some time -- maybe someone can help me track them down. They're both originally from live-action segments, shot on film and played between skits; I transcribed them from memory, arranged them, and played them in concert in 1998, with excerpts here:

http://www.rockoverlondon.com/mp3/sesame-suite.mp3

The first one was originally scored for an ensemble that included bassoon and glockenspiel, and I don't remember what the original film was, besides that it was something in a natural setting.

The second, however, should be easier to find -- it's the one with a guy kayaking down a river, and from what I can recall, repeatedly flipping over...I bet many of you will recognize the tune (in the MP3 it starts about 2/3 of the way through).

Can anyone help?

Does anyone remember the cartoon with the elephant that counts to four with its legs. One Two Three Kick! The elephant falls down and the trees and bushes crashes down around it. After everything falls down around it the announcer says "As you can see this is an elephant. Elephants have 4 legs 1....2....3....4!" I was wondering where I can get that cartoon

To Matthew and Kelly Re: Philip Glass-esque music. I have been driving myself insane for years to find that track. The closest I ever came was the album "The Philip Glass Ensemble - Einstein on the Beach" or "Dance Nos. 1-5". Check out http://www.philipglass.com/html/pages/glass-engine.html# and see if you can find it. There is a comment in the message boards of that site stating that the song has never been released. I refuse to believe that because it makes me sad.

That's really all that I remember about it, hopefully someone remembers it and can at least point me in the right direction. Thanks in advance!

But I'd Love To Know If Anyone Out There Knows This Clip I'm Talkin' About, ... And How I Can See It On YouTube If It's Available. I'd Appreciate ANYTHING That Any Of You Brain~Busters Could Do.

Thanks to all.

OMG! I just relived childhood.

However, I must be an oddball here, because the two skits that I remember and would LOVE to see, I don't think have been mentioned. Neither one was on very often, but there was one with a crying baby in her room and she was singing about crying to disco music with lights flashing around her room. Then her parents would walk in and all would be still and quiet. Anyone remember that one?

The other one, I barely remember, but would LOVE to see it again... it had a muppet talking in a whispery kind of voice saying "I have a plan... I'm gonna take it to Stan... in the van... etc"

Anyone know where to find these?

Hi everyone, wow if I can't find the answer here, it looks like a lost cause. My children and I saw an old sesame street months ago that had a skit where a muppet family was doing household chores together, like cleaning and fixing things and singing a very catchy tune. I think it said something like "when we work together, it soon gets done". My kids loved it and I can't get it out of my head. Can anyone identify it or tell me where I can find it?

I think it ended with a mom and her daughter on a swing at the park.

Also, anyone remember "j'taime means I love you... just by saying j'taime, j'taime in french it means I love you"

Anyone who happens to have a collection of old sesame street videos, can you see if you happen to have this one? It used to play a lot in the early to mid 80's. Cajun musicians playing a song while a picnic was going on, shots of the bayou - Very catchy song. Bless you guys and gals ~*~

New life coming
Soft and glowing

And time means everything.

Days fly by,
But who ever notices?
And time keeps taking time away.
Still everyday.
New life coming, in the good Lord's own sweet way.

Dear Sandy,

Reur post on 04 December 2006 (01:24 PM), believe me, you're not alone. That song has been playing in my head since the first time I heard it (ditto for my two brothers), and to date (i'm 38) we haven't found any recording, or youtube posting, of it. In fact, I chanced upon this blog trying to google the "look around" song and hoping that it turns up somewhere in cyberspace. It's the most overlooked piece of music on sesame street. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it's on the Sesame Street "old school" DVD, which I just ordered from Amazon. If it ain't there I'll just have to write and beg the producers for it. Best of luck to us both.

Okay, I'm askin' once again! I'm hoping someone can come through for me (Jeff, you out there, buddy)? :)

I didn't see this in the Muppet videos above. It's by far, without question, the best and funniest Muppet song ever! While "Telephone Rock" is a classic, one of the most melodic and funny songs by the Muppets, without any question at all, (including "I'm Between", a true classic not mentioned in an above videos), is a little all-time best called "Listen To The Bells." Pleeeze - someone guide me to a link that shows America and me the absolute funniest Muppet video ever made!!!


On 30 June 2007 (06:22 PM), Marky said:

Am I crazy? The 2nd best Muppet video of all-time isn't "telephone Rock" OR "Count It Highter" (two incredible classics)! Not even the "Oh, I'm Between" song that should be an above link like everything else. No, the second best Muppet video ever made (remember, the first, and by FAR, is "Listen To The Bells") would be a little ditty called "Danger." Come on, J.D. - what's a Sesame Street video collection without these amazing classics?!!!

J.D., you nailed it again! I know there were several Seasame Street clips called "Danger," but this is EXACTLY the one I was after! I remember a few other versions, but they were a bit later, if I'm not mistaken. This earlier, and quite clearly more classic version, was the exact one I was looking for! Everyone has done great for me and has fulfilled every song I've been looking for out there and it's been really amazing, but no one - even you, J.D. - has come close to touching the fact about knowing about my own, little-known song "I'm Between" with the muppet in between the two monsters? Unbelievable funny, but not viewed in years! Any help on this one?

I absolutely love this website! I know (and really enjoyed) the song, Marky, that you're talking about, but don't know where or how to retrieve it. I have a few myself for anyone to look at. If anyone knows where I could find these gems, I'd be eternally grateful. Thanks!

King Of Eight (above link does not work)
Number Two Dollhouse (above link does not work)
Marky's "I’m Between"
Count It Higher (above link does not work)
Caribbean Amphibian
Wet Paint(above link does not work)

Hope someone out there can help me out!

Thanks for the comments, Bob.

I have gone through every post on this site. Everyone seems to be in the same boat, and that makes us big kids feel normal. Having read each one, though, it seems clear two people need to be thanked (and by everyone) the most. Other than J.D. who, without this, we wouldn't even be here listening to and watching our dreams at all, Jeff and Steven needs the most gratitude. Finding all of the links you have is idescribable. I think I can speak for all of us when I say "thank you" so much!

Okay, now having said that, enough of the mushy stuff and let me ask: Where can I possibly find the "I'm Between" video and song? Doesn't *anyone* know what I'm talking about?!!!

I'm looking for a Sesame Street song....I don't know if there is a name for the song or not. I think it's Oscar in the middle with two other characters, one on either side of Oscar....it goes like this:

Oscar: Ma-na-ma-na
Others: to-do-do-do-do
Oscar: Ma-na-ma-na
Others: to-do-do-do
Oscar: Ma-na-ma-na
Others: to-do-do-do-do, do-do-do, do-do-do, do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do

Then Oscar goes and does his own thing with some improvisation, and the others just look at him, then he sees that he's just supposed to do his part only...... ma-na-ma-na...

This is just hillarious. We were singing this at work the other day.

If anyone knows where to find this, I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks,


On 06 July 2007 (01:57 PM), Marky said:

I know that one, Ray. Although you have too many "do-do-do's" in your last verse. I don't know the name of it, though - Jeff might have a link for you.

On 06 July 2007 (06:11 PM), Steven said:

Ray:

The name of the Sesame Street song you are looking for is called "Mahna Mahna." Oscar is not in that skit or song. It's just a guy muppet (named Mahna Mahna) in between two other girl muppets singing a song with those two other girl muppets. Here is the direct Sesame Street YouTube video clip song of "Mahna Mahna" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDOFj9yjO7Y

(Mahna Mahna is the muppet who came before Bip Bipadotta. Once Bip Bipadotta came on Sesame Street, Mahna Mahna was taken off but, both muppets are voiced by the same muppeteer).

Jeff and Steven, you guys are amazing!

Simply incredible! How do you know all that stuff? Both of you guys are truly Sesame Street geniuses! The information you provide is invaluable and the song videos and clips are priceless! Do you know each other? Anyway, thanks so much to both of you for the links. They mean a lot and you guys are truly the Gurus of this show!

As impressed as I am by all the clips and information you locate and provide for everyone (both of you), I’m surprised, Jeff, that you don’t know the I’m Between song. No question - it was definitely a Sesame Street song with muppets. I truly DO appreciate you acknowledging the song, Jeff, as I was thinking for awhile no one out there had a clue!

Both you guys have come up with far more obscure trivia, information, and links than this song. That’s why I’m a little bewildered why you haven’t heard of, or even been able to locate it.

At the risk of butchering the lyrics, I’ll do my best. Maybe Jeff or Steve can do their magic, or soemone else can possibly help, given these really lame lyrics I’m about to provide. However, seeing Ray sound out the "Mahna Mahna" lyrics above, I am a bit more inspired to embarrass myself with the I’m Between lyrics. The video had a muppet guy (no one we really know) in between two monster muppets (again no muppets we know - maybe an early Harry monster version). Remember, this was many years ago, and I’m probably way off:

Oh I’m Between, I’m Between
And I feeling just like a sardine
Oh I’m Between, if you know what I mean
I get a funny feeling
When I’m Between
First this one tries to push me this way
And this one pushes that
They both push me together
Until I come out splat
Oh I’m Between, I’m Between

Thanks for any help that you give!


On 08 July 2007 (04:04 PM), Marky said:

Here's better lyrics for it. Told you I was way off! I'm still looking for the video:

Oh I'm between - I'm between
And I'm feeling just like a sardine
'Cause I'm between - You know what I mean
It's not a happy scene To be between

Oh there's a monster on my left side
Green monster: (turning) Ho ha ha!
Man: A monster on my right
Blue: (turning) Ha ha ha!
They're there from early morning
Both monsters: (turning) Ha ha ha!
To very late at night - Oh I'm between
Like a string bean
It's the saddest thing that I have ever seen
To be between, To be between
First this one tries to push me this way
And that one pushes that
They both keep right on squeezing
Until I come out flat
Oh I'm between - Know what I mean
And it's easier by far being green
Than being between, Than being betwee-ee-een!

THANKS for providing me a very much needed and cathartic stroll down memory lane. The only thing missing for me is the skit between Henry and Liza...

THERE'S A HOLE IN MY BUCKET DEAR LIZA, DEAR LIZA

After Henry asks her in what should he carry water, she gets really frustrated.
I love the part where she turns to the screen, looks directly at us, sighs and says,

"Can you believe it?"

I have been searching for a clip for months.

HELP!!!

Thanks to all people who added the videos up there, that was a great journey to childhood but I really miss the Between Song (a.k.a. "I'm between").

I think there is no chance to find it out, right?

I don't think so, Kerry. These guys on this site are terrific in finding all these Sesame songs and clips, but no one seems to have remembered it. I'm glad I found someone who did!

Hi guys! Great job on the site! Keep up the hard work :) I was wondering if you remember 2 fav clips of mine. I'm old enought to remember when they were new. First was a long haired blonde woman doing a gymnastics routine on the uneven bars. I don't remember the context though. The other was a group of kids and the Letter J they were learning how to make a jumpsuit. At the end they were jumping on a trampoline. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Actually the first Mahna Mahna is originally from sesame street. They did a remake of it on the Muppet show later.

Here is the link to the ORIGINAL "Mahna Mahna" from EARLY sesame street (circa 1969 0r 1970? maybe?).

Thanks for these. When I was a kid, I remember a counting series that went up to ten that was from the first years (Late 60's) that was psychadelic in style (Not the pinball type) but it had monsters and animals and ended with "One, Two, Three, Four Five. . .. Six Senven Eight NIIIIINE, ten." you know the one.

And then there were some letter cartoons that I just loved. My favorite was the Letter "i" and word "impolite" ("yes, I guess this 'i' does look like a one with a ball on top" "Not something Like, Exactly like, pin head! You have the mind of a flea!"

any chance you could find them??


On 09 August 2007 (11:04 AM), Mark said:

The letter "i" was a classic, David. I'm still trying to find my favorite about the letter N. it was "The Letter N" sung by Nick Normal and the Nickmatics. Super funny and a great song!

For instance, one pops out of the clouds and one is hiding behind a bush and stuff like that. It's a still image and then when one of the kids points out a bird, the bird becomes animated. My only reason is that i was one of the kids talking in the cartoon. I did the recording when i was 5. I'm 17 now. I would just love to see it again for memory's sake.

Regarding the YouTube video clip of Caterpillars Never Wear Brown Boots, I don't remember a skit on Sesame Street with a caterpillar wearing brown boots. However, I did find a Sesame Street YouTube video clip of Simple Simon with three animals who had a different body part that belonged to one of the animals, (one of the animals was a sheep who was wearing brown boots). At the end of the skit, Simple Simon said to the sheep "Sheep don't wear boots" if that was the video clip skit you were looking for. If so, here is the Sesame Street YouTube video clip of Simple Simon with the animals telling the sheep at the end that "Sheep don't wear boots"

At the end of the skit, Simple Simon said to the sheep "Sheep Don't Wear Boots" if this was the video clip you were trying to find.

"My name is Fred, they call me Fred. And every night before I go to bed I eat a piece of...a piece of...(then some guy pops out and says...)Bread!" (there were more lyrics but I forget them)

I think Fred was a tall cowboy with a mustache, that maybe had a guitar(???), and his friend that reminded him of all the words was shorter (I think). The theme of it was words that rhyme with Fred and something about being forgetful.

It had been so long since I'd seen it and there's no trace of it online, that I thought I had dreamed it or something. It is also a possibility that it was on Electric Company not Sesame Street, but I think it was Sesame Street.

I want to see it again so bad!!!!

Anyone remember/know where I can see these clips:

1- The man with the "Up and Down" remote, who at the end destorys a bridge but a small child comes and picks up the remote to save it.

2- The "Exit" song with the figures on the gym wall dancing.

3- The Crossing Zone, a black and white parody of "The twilight zone" with Gordon and a girl who are about to cross the street, but Gorden explains she has to wait for the Walk light.

4- Ok i know everyone has posted things about the kids at the playground singing that song, but I remember another clip with kids playing at a playground, but there might of not even been singing, but it started with a melody and kids running and playing, etc. Saw in back in early 1990s.

5- The songs Maria sang about Open and Closed in spanish inside the house.

Anyone can help?

I’ve got an Amazon gift certificate burning holes in my pocket,
and I want to get the most bang for my buck.

Enter the Secret Amazon Web Pages:

This is where you’re going to find the "latest sales, rebates, and limited-time offers" from
Amazon, and you can score some pretty deep discounts if you’re a savvy shopper.

Next, there’s the special Sale link. This is open every Friday, and ONLY on Fridays.

You can find the same good discounts here as you would in hidden Deals, although some
Fridays you can really get lucky and make off like an Amazon bandit - I’ve seen discounts
there as low as 75% off sticker price.

Greetingsa all! Great job on the site! Keep up the hard work :) I was wondering if you remember 2 fav clips of mine. I'm old enought to remember when they were new. First was a long haired blonde woman doing a gymnastics routine on the uneven bars in slow motion. A voice says "slow" over and over.. I don't remember the context though. The other was a group of kids and the Letter J they were learning how to make a jumpsuit. At the end they were jumping on a trampoline in slow motion. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I have been looking a lot of times for the Sesame Street YouTube video clip of "I'm Between" but, everytime I go look for it, I'm never able to find it. I do remember that it was posted on YouTube a year ago but, I think the person who posted it up has removed it. Here is a webpage that has information about a lot of things on Sesame Street, maybe the "I'm Between" YouTube video clip song is on this webpage, http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Sesame_Street Or, maybe you can try emailing the PBS company to see if they have any YouTube video clips of "I'm Between."

Dose anyone have the video of Sharon, Lois & Bram
when they were on Sesame Street sing I`m slowly going crazy I would like to see that video.


On 16 December 2007 (04:50 PM), Steven said:

Michael Day:

The song "I'm slowly going crazy" with Sharon, Lewis, and Bram was actually a song from the "Today's Special" show, not Sesame Street. There is actually a "Today's Special" website which has a lot of things about the show including a "Multimedia" section which has video clips of the show, and the song "I'm slowly going crazy" is on that Today's Special website. The direct address for this Today's Special website is
http://todays-special.schuminweb.com/ Unfortunately, it's not working right now. However, the person who created this "Today's Special" website is Ben Schumin. You can send him an email if you would like if he has a YouTube video clip of "I'm slowly going crazy" with Sharon, Lewis, and Bram. You can contact Ben Schumin by email using this contact form which is on this website, http://www.schuminweb.com/contact.php

On 23 December 2007 (06:01 PM), Laurie J. said:

Hi! I just found this site and I LOVE IT!!! So many fond memories.

I was just wondering if anyone knew where I can find info on a very old live action segment where these kids are making people, animals and birds go slow or fast and I think maybe backwards or forwards.It's accompanied by really cool banjo music. Like they command a dog to slow down and stop, and there's a guy running and jumping,I think he stops in mid leap in the air, and birds flying slow or backwards. I think they make a horse go slow and backwards, too. (of course, they're just playing the film backwards) And they're drinking at a drinking fountain and they make the water slow down. There's this really cool banjo music playing, and the music slows down and stops when the subjects in the film slow down or stop. I know I saw this on sesame street in the early/mid 70's. Please tell me I'm not the only one who remembers this! Please if anyone knows what this skit is called or the title of the banjo music accompanying it please let me know, or if you find a video clip.
Thanks for the great memories! Keep up the great work! YOU ROCK!!!


On 02 January 2008 (10:15 AM), Mad Mike said:

Hi Laurie J! I THINK the clip you are looking for is called "Film Is Magic" on YouTube. It's one of my favorites! I am also happy to mention to all that the blonde female gymnast wearing the black leotard that shows "Between" is also on YouTube! No if I can only find the "Slow" one of her!
Hope this helps Laurie!

Thanks, Mad Mike! I found this on youtube but it was listed under a different title. That IS the one I was looking for! Does anyone know what the title of the music accompanying "Film is Magic" is? Is it composed by Joe Raposo?
Other clips I'd like to find....

1)Ernie counting sheep, fire trucks, balloons, and waking Bert up (really old clip)
2)Letter Y animated clip..."What do you think your mother would do, if YOU yelled like a Yellow Yahoo?"
3)Ernie and Bert causing a blackout while trying to drown out the noise of a dripping faucet.
4)"Oh gee, there's a bird on me"
By the way, does anyone know why I can't always load the entire clip on some youtube clips? Does anyone else have this problem?
Thanks! :)

Hi, just found this site and I love it! Does anybody know where i can find an old clip of one or more persons that were inside a large brown cloth ball that would roll around the ground. These were real people, nothing animated. I remember being able to see parts of the people inside it, like hands pushing against the fabric. The background was just plain white. I have been looking for it and can't find it anywhere. Wish I could give a better description, but i'd usually run as fast as i could from the room.

Hi,

I see that some of you are interested in the gymnast that appeared on Sesame Street in the 1970's. As one mentioned, the clip of her doing 'Between' has been posted on YouTube. However, I am also looking forward to the other five clips of her being posted on YouTube as well. They are 'Around,' 'Beginning/End,' 'Close To-Away From,' 'Over/Under,' and 'Slow.' Anyone out there have these? Thanks in advance.

Thank you so very much! I haven't been able to view it yet, but you're the absolute best! How come it was so hard to find? How did you finally find it? I've looked all over! Thanks again, Steven!


On 31 January 2008 (05:14 AM), Steven said:

Mark:

In answer to your question, the "I'm Between" song wasn't hard to find. I've typed in google.com, YouTube - Sesame Street: I'm Between but, nothing ever came up. Probably in the past when it was up on YouTube the person who posted it probably removed it but now, he/she probably put it back on YouTube or, someone else probably posted it on YouTube. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the YouTube Sesame Street video clip of "I'm Between."


On 31 January 2008 (05:45 PM), Mark said:

Steven:

Just watched it! Yep - that was the one alright! Isn't that great? I just love that song and clip! I must admit, I didn't remember it was Jim Henson who was muppeting the "Between" guy. You gotta remember, too, that it's been over 30 years since I last saw that. Not only that, but I've been yearning to watch it ever since I found this website a couple of years ago! The clip and song was every bit as good as I remembered it!

Thanks again, Steven, you're definitely the hero of the day! Today is my oldest daughter's 18th birthday, but it looks like I'm the one who got the best gift!


On 31 January 2008 (08:46 PM), Steven said:

Mark:

No problem. Glad to help. Yes, I think it was Jim Henson who was muppeting the "Between" guy. That "Between" guy is Harvey Monster's friend. Harvey Monster is also in the "I'm Between" skit. Harvey Monster is the blue monster in the skit, (probably that is an old Harvey Monster in the "I'm Between skit). Here is a picture of the new Harvey Monster on this webpage, http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/Harvey_Monster I hope you enjoy the Sesame Street YouTube video clip of "I'm Between."

It is my favorite thing EVER (I grew up watching SS -- I was a child of the '70s), and I want to get the lower-case N as a tattoo, because I identify with her so much. Is there anyone here who could help me? I've found plenty of sites with the animated piece, but no pictures. Thanks!

Well, I have viewed "The Letter N" clip several times now. First, it was definitely the one I was thinking of, so you once again got the exact clip I was looking for! I have to say it was every bit as good as I remembered it. Not having seen it in 30 years, it brought back a lot, and I was surprised how much of it I actually remembered. This helps complete my Sesame Street clip memories, although there is plenty more I'd like to see. Good job, Steven!

I remember watching a Sesame Street animated clip featuring an acorn that dropped from a tree and fell to the ground and everytime it would come on I would cry and wail! I haven't seen that clip since and I would love to see what I was fussing about. It had to be around 1988-1889, maybe even 1990. I was about 3 or 4. I am now 22. If anyone has idea as to where this clip may be I would love to watch it again. I think I've gone through hundreds and hundreds of clips and can't seem to find it anywhere.

I was just wondering if anybody had the following 1970's Sesame Street clips to post to YouTube:

1. 'Fred, get me a 20' - the live-action clip of a man being sent on a mission to find a 20, and then who ends up running into a gorilla!

2. Gymnast - one clip ('between') has been posted. Does anybody have any of the other five ('around,' 'beginning/end,' 'close to/away from,' 'over/under,' and 'slow')?

3. Mail delivery - this live-action hip song includes the line '...to the post office where it will stay, for just one day...'

4. 'Beginning-end' clips - four live-action clips demonstrating 'beginning' and 'end.' They are: barber giving a customer a haircut, man painting a picture, man eating a hot dog, and kids waiting in line.

5. Two scuba diver clips (live-action), which are: 1) he finds five shells underwater, counts them on the shore, and is surprised by a crab, and 2) kids say 'Boo!' and he swims 'away from' them.

Thanks in advance.

Ive been looking for a clip for awhile with Linda and Luis. Theyre doing a "before and after" kind of thing where the screen freezes right before something happened. Linda is the one jumping through a hoop, slipping on a banana peel, and getting hit with water. Luis is the ringmaster. Anyone know where i can get this clip? Thanks in advance.

I had posted an entry asking if anybody had the crackmaster skit, but it looks like my post got removed. Does anybody out there have the skit? It's the one with the girl in her room and she sees the cracks in her walls turn into things, like a camel and a monkey, and then finally, behind the door, is a huge splinter crack that claims to be the crack master. It howls and moans and then falls apart. Does anyone out there know which one I'm talking about?

Hi!! Nobody has answered that clip I was looking for!! I e-mailed about one week ago, and nobody had answered!! I have been trying, and trying for a very long time looking all over the internet for a Sesame Street film called: "What sound does a cow make?" with Maria's voiceover!! The cows have different sounds for instance, a doorbell, and a telephone, and the kids say, "That's not the sound a cow makes!!" with banjo music!! I was looking on muppetwiki, and I saw a picture on Sesame Street episode 3,870, on Sprout Television!! I really want to be e-mailed back and I want somebody to tell me where on youtube, or video I can find that film!! I also want somebody to tell me where that other one is with kids going roller-skating!! Please e-mail me back, and let me know!!

I just had a lot of fun watching clips and reading all the memories others have posted.

I am looking for the filmed segment of school children playing in a playground and boarding a school bus. It was taped in the mid seventies at a school in Pennsylvania, probably in Media. My sister was one of the girls! I believe it was filmed in the winter as I remember the children wearing coats and scarves. I know it was played often on the show during the 80's.

Let me know if you have a copy or any ideas.

Sunny Days to you all!

Another clip I am looking for is one by Joe Raposo that is an animal clip. It was on Sesame Street Season 32, and it had the same music score that "Its a gazelle had," but instead, it was a deer!! It was an 8-pointer buck running fast across a plain!! The kid said basically the same thing when the kid said its a gazelle but instead, he said "Its a deer!!" "Its running fast!!" It was one of my all-time favorite Raposo films!! Does anyone have it??

Thanks a lot Steven! She has the long pigtails and there are three shots of her. She was so happy to be able to watch that again, and couldn't wait to show her children. We don't have any video from childhood so it is very special.

There must be another one she is in, as we recall a playground scene in the winter, but she loves the song for this one so she is happy. I'll definitely keep checking You Tube for the second one. It is too easy to eat up a couple of hours watching great old footage. Wow.

Here's to Bo Diddley!

I searched this string, but no one seemed to have the 'Bayou Pon Pon Special' or whatever it was. It wasn't just the music, it was the video with crawfish and diverse people hanging together and sharing.

So I thought I'd ask again - anyone found a clip of either of the two Sesame Street Cajun pieces from the 80s?

What a great site - certainly takes me back to my childhood. I loved Sesame Street (still do!)...except for ONE skit. I would freak out and scream and cry and shake...and be a mess for the rest of the day - every time it came on...which wasn't very often, or maybe my Mom just managed to get the channel changed most of the time.

It was a French and English skit about running. There was some type of beat in the background, which I remember always made my heart beat in my throat. It was people running and there was sort of singing/speaking going "JE COUR! I'm runnnnning. JE COUR!! I'm runnnning." I think they ran in sand, and maybe on some other surfaces. There was a gorilla at the end - I'm not sure if it was a real gorilla, or someone dressed up...but I remember finding the gorilla extremely upsetting (and when I was little, I didn't realize that "JE COUR" was French for "I'm running" and I thought that the gorilla's name was "JECOU" and that he was chasing the people.

Crack Monster!


On 29 August 2008 (09:28 AM), Jon Armond said:

Where is the Crack Monster (Crack Master, King of cracks, Behind the door) segment? Someone somewhere has got to have this. I think I need to see it again to have some sort of "closure". I have thought about this clip every day for the past 30 years. I know, "get a life".

I am 37. This clip would have aired between 1976-1978 and I was terrified of it and mesmerized by it all at once. I have heard urban myths surrounding this clip - it had to be removed and destroyed because it was causing mental distress, etc. I don't believe that, but I do believe there is a reason why it seems to be the one Sesame Street clip that cannot be found and why posts and links on various sites are removed once posted. Is this part of some CTW coverup?

Here is the clip: If you are 35-40 you should remember it. Although, I watched Sesame Street every day and probably only saw it 5 times, tops. It begins with a little girl with frizzy hair (I want to say she's a black girl). She is sitting on her bed in a horrible old house - the cartoon is in black and white (again, I think). As she starts to look closly at the cracks in her walls, she makes out shapes and one of these, a camel, comes to life and is very nice. She climbs aboard and this camel takes her for a ride meeting different crack animals. There is a Monkey who is very happy to see her and says "Good day, good day...I'm glad you came my way". (BTW, I personally don't remember this part, but several other people mention it, so it must be part of it). She also sees a crack-formed bird and finally the music changes as they meet the twisted figure. Some remember it calling itself "Crack Master", or "King of Cracks". I simply remember it being the Crack Monster. It yells and crumbles leaving bricks behind. Eventually the girl returns to her bed, realizing it was all just her imagination. She then sings; "Camel, thank you for the ride...I'll come and see you again sometime".

There has got to be a reason this has stuck so vividly in my brain for 30+ years. I need to see it again and get it out! I need to stop this on-line crusade and do something more important, but until someone finds it for me, the search continues. Someone please put me out of my misery! Feel free to email me directly.

Mr. Sooper Heroes:

Actually, the YouTube video clip of this boy who would only say "I Don't Care" where he also got eaten by a lion was not on Sesame Street. It was just a regular cartoon video being filmed which was called "Chicken Soup With Rice." However, here is the YouTube video clip of the boy who would say "I Don't Care" from the video "Chicken Soup With Rice", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VkoszKXFZQ&feature=related


On 08 October 2008 (04:41 AM), Jon Armond said:

Actually, the video you are refering to is called "Really Rosie" and it is from 1975. Illustrations by Maurice Sendak and music by Carol King. She is the one singing the songs - including the one you mention about the boy who doesn't care about anything. The song (and the boy's name) is Pierre. Other song include "One was Johnny", "Chicken Soup with Rice", "Alligators all around" and "Really Rosie". I bought a VHS Copy on line about 10 years ago because I loved this 1/2 hour cartoon special when it would come on when I was a kid. "Pierre" was my favorite song. Here are part of the lyrics:

"There once was a boy named Pierre,
who always would say 'I don't care'.
Read his story my friend, and you'll find in the end,
that a suitable moral lies there.

One day, his mother said as Pierre climbed out of bed, good morning darling boy...you are my only joy.
Pierre said: 'I DON'T CARE'!

Classic! Love this cartoon. Not sure if it's on Youtube, but I do have a copy.

NOW, SOMEONE PLEASE FIND MY CRACK MONSTER CLIP - SEE POST ABOVE!!!!
