    Hey all.

    Thought you might like to know that Caroll Spinney is going to be on CBS Sunday Morning this Sunday, May 25th. You'd have to check your local listings, but here in NYC, it's on WCBS from 9AM to 10:30.

    It features an interview with Caroll from his dressing room on the Sesame set, and Big Bird giving the reporter an interview from his nest.

    Enjoy!

    Man, it's a rare occasion when we (or I at least) actually know in advance when there's a Muppet appearance on a morning news show. Usually it's minutes before it starts!

    I heard the exact same news two weeks ago (for airdate May 11), and he didn't show up. They'd better not be lying this time.

    This sounds like it is a pre-taped segment so chances are we're good to go as long as that silly President down south doesn't start another war and knock Big Bird out of the news in the meantime! :p

    I taped it.

    Let me tell you, this is the BEST segment on Caroll Spinney they have had on all month! They showed some old, quite possibly rare, video clips from Sesame Street, and after covering his reaction to Mr. "Looper's" death, they went into Jim Henson's. They showed clips from Jim's memorial, er, celebration. They showed where the Muppeteers got up with their puppets and started singing, then showed Big Bird singing "It's Not That Easy Bein' Green." I couldn't hold back the tears. Then they brought you to Caroll's house. That was pretty neat.

    Was anyone else able to catch it?

    I saw it and I tried not to cry, but I just couldn't help it.

    I hear ya', man...

    I tell you, if my family weren't sitting right there, I would have been bawling my eyes out. But, my sister picks on anyone who cries (unless it's herself), so, I just held it back til I could go in the other room...

    Quite the tear-jerker...

    :cry: :) :cry: :) :cry:

    Oh, yeah. I saw that. It was very interesting. It's rare to see Scooter and Elmo together like they were in the background during that. I never knew Big Bird sang Kermit's song. That was great!

    I do not have cable TV, and the reception is horrible. If I mail someone a blank VHS tape & return postage, would you dub me a copy?

    email me at: wumpmucket@fuse.net


    many thanks:)

    Oh why didn't I just set the VCR? It sounded great.

    I was in a bed-and-breakfast with my friend and he turned on the tv and woke me up to watch it. Normally, he wouldn't have sat there for that kind of thing, but because it was of interest to me he stayed there and watched it all. It was pretty cool.

    Then, Monday morning, several of my friends at the Bed-and-breakfast came in and we all watched SS.
