    Anybody else have a hard time transcribing and have to watch a scene at least fifty times before getting it down correctly?

    Yes, no, maybe? Well, I hope you enjoy my efforts that I had to go through for some of the skits with this next section of the show.

    Chapter 16

    “Thank you Bunsen and Beaker. I’m sure everyone will be wanting to call us for that.”

    “Yea, everyone with half a brain!” Statler called out.

    “That’s right,” Kermit said plunging ahead with the show. “Now, I’d like to welcome our furry friends from the rock, the Fraggles!”

    The curtain opened upon the set made to look like caves, similar to Fraggle Rock, but not exactly. Wembly moved and be-bopped around the set with Mokey, Red, and Boober danced in place behind Gobo who sang with Wembley backing him up:

    La la la la la
    Squeetly-dee squeetly boing
    La la la-la la la-la
    Deedly-dee diddly doing
    La-la la la la
    La la la
    La-la Pass it on
    When it's nice and bright
    And it brings delight
    Let your heart choose right
    Gotta pass it on
    When it rolls real good
    Like a rollie should
    Then it's understood
    Gonna pass it on

    Red took over the next verse.

    When you're giving love away
    Love will come again to stay
    What you give is what you gain
    When you pass it on

    Mokey wasn’t one to be left out and sang.

    When I give a gift to you
    I know you're gonna give it too
    That's why givin's what we do
    As we pass it on

    The entire group joined in to finish out the song.

    Pass it on Pass it on
    Pass it on Pass it on

    Wish upon all the good things that you do

    Pass it on Pass it on
    Pass it on Pass it on
    When it's gone

    It will bring good luck to you
    When you're giving love away
    Love will come again to stay
    What you give is what you gain
    When you pass it on

    When I give a gift to you
    I know you're gonna give it too
    That's why givin's what we do
    As we pass it on
    Pass it on

    The audience clapped as the curtain came down and Sam the Eagle came out.

    “Ladies and Gentlemen, let me tell you that I am sad to say that because things got so out of hand during these trying times, these weirdos are now the standard of culture for America.” Sam paused for a moment as a shudder overtook him from head to wing tip. “I now give you some of the better culture that we have to offer.”

    When the curtain opened this time Rowlf was sitting at his piano gently tinkling the ivories.

    “At this time I would like to present one of my renditions of one of the great songs of our time. The ever popular classic, You and I and George.”

    He paused for a little flourish on the keys before continuing, “But why you ask, as well you should, have I never heard this great song of our times? Fact is nobody has ever heard of this ever popular classic. In it’s only recording You and I and George sold two copies. I bough one and George bought one. Where were you?”

    Rowlf seemed to launch into the song before pausing one last time for an additional warning. “My own mother turns down her hearing aid when I sing this song.”

    Backstage Bert and Ernie were preparing to go one.

    “Kermit, oh Kermit,” Bert came running up to Kermit, “Are you sure this is what you want us to do for the show? I don’t know about this.”

    “You’ll be fine Bert. Besides, everyone else likes it.”

    “I just don’t want to have to deal with that…”

    “Well, it’s to late to complain now,” Kermit cut in, “Rowlf’s song is over and you’re up.”

    Kermit dashed on stage again. “And now it’s time to welcome more of our friends from Sesame Street, Bert and Ernie. Yaaayyyeee!”

    As the curtain parted it revealed Bert and Ernie sitting in a boat on a pond. Bert had a fishing pole in his hand and Ernie was sitting there humming.

    Bert sighed then said. “Gee Ernie, an hour on this lake and not one bite. Where are all the fishes?’

    “Oh, they’re down there Bert.”

    “They are?”

    “Sure. If you’d like I’ll catch some and show you.”

    “Oh, you will,” Bert said doubting Ernie’s fishing abilities.

    “Mmm hmm.”

    “Easy as that?” Bert asked again still disbelieving.


    “Huh, okay, here’s the pole. Go ahead, show me.”

    Bert shoved the pole towards Ernie who was vigorously shaking his head.

    “Oh, I don’t need a fishing pole Bert.”


    “Unh uh.”

    “Well, how are you going to catch all these fishes without a fishing pole?”

    “Well you see I call them. I have this special fish call and they come right into the boat.”

    “Oh they do.” Now Bert was incredulous.

    Ernie nodded to show Bert that this was exactly what he intended to do.

    “You call them?“ Bert started laughing and called out to the audience. “He calls them.” He laughed again and turned back to Ernie. “You call them, that’s rich. This I got to see, go ahead.”

    “Yea, well see Bert, I have to call them really loud though so they can here. You know the fish are under the water so you have to call them really loud so they can here.”

    “Sure, sure, go ahead.”

    Bert waited to see Ernie embarrassed

    “Okay, I call them like this. Heerrree fishy, fishy, fishy.”

    A medium sized fish jumped into the boat and Ernie counted it aloud in pleasure. “One, one fish.”


    Bert was now wide eyed.

    “Mmm hmm. I think I’ll call a few more. Heerrreee fishy, fishy, fishy.” Another fish jumped into the boat. “Two fish. Shall I call a few more Bert?”

    “Yea. Yea! How you do that? Yea, yea!” Bert was really excited.

    “Oh well just like this. Heeerreee fishy, fishy fishy.” Even more jumped in. “Three fish, four fish, five fish.”

    “Wow, Ernie, that’s terrific, let me try okay!”

    “Sure Bert.”

    “How do I do it?”

    “Just make sure you call real loud Bert.”

    “Ok, just real loud, got it okay here we go“.

    “Here fishy, fishy, fishy, fishy, fishy,” Bert called so low the audience had trouble hearing him.

    “No, Bert. That’s not loud enough you’re calling very quiet.”

    “Here fishy, fishy, fishy, fishy, fishy.”

    “Nmm mmm,“ Ernie started again shaking his head. “Still to quiet.”

    “Here fishy, fishy, fishy, fishy, fishy.”

    “It’s not loud enough Bert.”

    “Here fishy, fishy, fishy, fishy, fishy” Bert called becoming very frustrated. What had worked so easily for Ernie just wasn’t happening for him. His voice continued to rise as he complained, “Ernie it doesn’t work for me. I’ve been trying to call and call they just don’t come up.”

    “Oh that’s the way Bert. You’ve got it now you’re yelling real loud. You have to yell just like you’re yelling right now.”

    “Yea, okay.” Bert realized that he was now yelling. “Here fishy, fishy, fishy, fishy, fishy.”

    A shark jumped into the boat, turned to Bert and said, “You called.”

    Bert fainted at the sight of the shark and Ernie laughed while saying “That’s one for you Bert.”

    Vetrinarian’s hospital had the audience chuckling even more after Ernie and Bert left the stage and Kermit brought tears to the audience's eyes as he sang about remaining true to who you are in It’s not Easy Being Green. The entire Sesame Street group then took to the stage for Sing before the curtain came down for the first intermission.

    *standing ovation* HERE FISHY FISHY!!!! That is my all time favorite Ernie and Bert sketch...well, ok, you already knew that cause I told you, but I was so excited to see it! It was great! I enjoyed Pass It On and You and I and George too. The show is great, can't wait for more!

    Here Fishy, Fishy is one of my families all time favorites as well. I have a funny story about it from my summer vacation as well.

    You see I'm the oldest of six children and my youngest sibling is seven years old but mentally delayed some (my parents adopted my last four siblings and they all came from speckled backgrounds). Anyway, she was standing at the fence at the guest ranch we were staying at and calling for the horses there to come to the fence.

    "Here Horsey," she called and my dad turned and looked at me thinking of the Ernie and Bert sketch and said "Heerre fishy, fishy, fishy."

    She overheard him and tried to call the horses by saying "Here fishy, fishy."

    It was so cute and now when I see that sketch I also have that memory with it!

    That's a rully great chapter... And a great memory to share with your family, and us.

    Pass It On, a Fraggle classic, has to be there.
    You did the song "You And I And George" justice.
    And of course, the Bert and Ernie sketch was superb.

    Well, now that it's intermission... Think I'll go get some of that fresh popcorn I smelled a while ago. That, or maybe a large lemon-lime soda.

    Chapter 17

    “And now I’d like to introduce my nephew Robin and a very special friend of the Muppets, Amber Crenshaw as they sing Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” Kermit said to the audience who were settling back down into their seats.

    The curtain opened with Amber standing upstage and Robin sitting on the fence post. Amber started with the first verse, her voice wavering at the beginning but growing stronger as she gained her confidence. Robin sang the second verse and they sang together for the third. Robin then sang the fourth verse with Amber bringing it home in the final verse.

    Amber came backstage glowing after the song. “It really wasn’t that bad!”

    “I told you that you would be fine,” Robin said to her.

    “I want to do it again.”

    “Now, don’t get ahead of yourself,” Kermit cut in, “we’ll have plenty of more shows that we can set something up with. Besides, now I have to go introduce Fozzie.”

    Kermit smiled at the audience clapping along to the Rummblebug Hum that the Fraggles had taken the stage for and stepped out when the curtain came down.

    “And now everybody, I would like to introduce you to our resident funny man…”

    “Oh, did you find one in your absence?” Statler called out.

    “Hey, you two, save this for him. I’d like to introduce you to our resident funny man Fozzie Bear.”

    “Hiya, hiya, hiya! How are you doing there folks?” Fozzie slid onto the stage, ready to take on everyone in the audience. “Say a man walked into a bar the other day and after which...”

    “He said he was glad he passed out so he didn’t have to listen to you!” Statler immediately interrupted

    “I thought you had lots of time to come up with new material, not stuff that has been around since the dark ages.” Waldorf cried.

    “Ahhh, well lets try this one. A grass hopper goes to a bar and hops up on a stool. The bartender is surprised to see a grasshopper and says "Say, you know we have a drink named after you?" The grasshopper responds "You have a drink named Roger?" Amusing himself Fozzie wiggled his ears and cried out “Wocka, wocka, wocka!”

    “Okay, that was decent,” Statler started.

    “Yea, for a flea!”

    “Ahh, come one guys. Okay, okay, I’ll make a deal with you if you don’t laugh at my next joke…”

    “We tried that before!”

    “Yea, we lost and we’ve been stuck watching you perform ever since.”

    “Just a minute. If you all don’t laugh at my next joke you get to do my act next show!”

    “We’ll do a better job at it!”

    “Give it your best shot.”

    “Okay, here goes. The coach of a high school basketball team is getting his team ready, when his star player walks in with a cast on his leg. The coach asks "What happened?" and the player replies "I broke my leg in three places." The coach paused for a moment, then says "Well then, you should stay out of those places."

    Fozzie turned and watched as Statler and Waldorf simultaneously pursed their lips hard together and turned red before a guffaw slipped out.

    “Ahh, ahhh. Thank you folks, I’ll see you next time.” Fozzie said and skipped off stage.

    “Oh, Kermit! It was great. Those old cronies laughed.”

    Kermit smiled gently at his friend as he ushered the Sesame Street monsters onto the stage to sing Monster in the Mirror followed by closely by Oscar’s stirring ode to his trash.

    “And now, ladies and gentlemen,” Kermit said taking his place in front of the curtain again. “I’d like to introduce you to our resident artist, Gonzo the Great accompanied by our band the Electric Mayhem!”

    The Electric Mayhem gently played the opening to “Wipe Out!” as Gonzo prepared the audience for his death defying dive into a glass of water. Animal ripped into the drums as Gonzo climbed the ladder and the rest of the band. Unfortunately for the audience, Gonzo was distracted by Animals enthusiasm and missed the glass of water by three feet crashing through the stage into the storage areas below.

    The curtain quickly came down as Kermit announced a second intermission above Gonzo’s whoops of delight before the show could go on.

    Sure thing. Good choice of acts. Though maybe next time, a bit more detail as to the songs/acts themselves.

    Let's see...
    "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" by Robin and Amber.
    "Rumblebug Hum" by the Fraggles.
    Fozzie Bear's Monologue, was probably the best cause it was the most developed out of all the sketches/acts. Especially how he got the hecklers to laugh as well.
    "Monster In The Mirror" by the SS Monsters probably led by Grover.
    "I Love Trash" by Oscar The Grouch.
    And finally, Gonzo's daredevil act gone horribly askew.

    Great stuff, post more when it's ready, please!

    Hey guys, there's going to be another delay on the last few chapters because I now have company coming into town for the weekend. Just thought I'd let you know instead of leaving you hanging like last time.
