    That’s exactly like Rohail Hashmi. He keeps having these tantrums about not getting certain SST episodes and is never going to get his way.

    Just look at this.

    2006 noggin recordings or maybe they might have Sesson 2 episodes of noggin version of play With Me Sesame I love them 52 episodes or in 2002 Noggin episodes of play With Me Sesame

    I’ll be patience and noggin version 2356,2257,2404,123 series 3136-40,3142-76,3178-3200,3238

    Sounds like someone that's very desperate to me. From what I heard from another Youtuber is that Rohail has a mental disorder called "Greedy-Gimmeitis".

    If you guys are Christian (which I am), let's all pray together in hopes that these lost episodes (including the wicked witch episode), will surface.

    I'm pretty thrilled to see any "new" classic episode. I'd especially like to see some Seasons 2-5 shows, as well as some from the Muehl/Earl Davis era.

    But specific ones?

    Besides some of the ones mentioned (the Season 16 premiere is a high one on my list), I wouldn't mind seeing Brian Muehl's debut as Telly. You know, the episode that was written for Big Bird, but reworked because Caroll fell off his bike and hurt his ankle. Maybe some pre-Kevin Elmo material.

    I still find it kind of odd that the season 16 premiere was the only premiere episode not shown on Unpaved.... I wonder if maybe the Workshop just forgot to (from my assumption) package it out when sending the tapes out to Noggin for Syndication.

    I thought about that, but it always seemed like a pretty careless mistake. But, whatevs, i'm not judging. They had a lot of episodes to package.
    But, reading the description for the episode, it actually sounds intriguing and pretty significant to the mythos of the show:

    "In the first episode of the new season, Nov. 19, Big Bird will say he's tired of assaults on his credibility. "I know the difference between real and imaginary. Why don't they believe me?" [...]

    Three humans in the cast - Maria (Sonia Manzano), Gordon (Roscoe Orman) and Linda (Linda Bove) - will become believers. "Big Bird will no longer be alone,"[Norman] Stiles said.

    But in the best cliffhanger tradition of Hollywood, the humans won't actually see Snuffleupagus. 'Not this season,' said Stiles."


    It makes Gordon's line in the Snuffy reveal scene make a lot more sense, when he says to Big Bird "Maria, and Linda, and I believed you". I always wondered what he meant by that because, until recently, I hadn't seen anything indicating this.
    So, maybe they didn't include it because it seemed a bit redundant, given the very next season premiere had a similar focus.

    Speaking of Snuffy episodes, cjd874 mentioned one (0986) that popped into my head just now. The adults tell Big Bird to essentially break up with his "imaginary" friend. The two give each other a goodbye hug, but Snuffy's tears get Big Bird's feathers wet.
    (paraphrasing)
    :wisdom:: Snuffy, you're getting my feathers all wet... hey, these tears are real... if they're real, than you're not imaginary! We can still be friends!

    I remember Caroll Spinney once saying that it was a moment that had both he and Jerry Nelson in tears.

    I first read about that one in the SS Unpaved book, which was a birthday present for me when I was five. I read it cover to cover and wore out the binding, so my parents bought another copy for me the following year. Years later, I was scrolling through the SS episode listings on Muppet Wiki and saw "Big Bird tells Snuffy that they can't be friends," and realized that was the episode I had read about as a kid! I wonder which adults convinced Big Bird that Snuffy wasn't real. I personally think Bob would have been involved in this episode, since he was perhaps the strongest non-believer of them all.

    But back to the topic: there is one Snuffy-themed episode I'd like to see. Probably circa 1974-75: Luis asks Big Big to watch his scale while he gets some tools to fix it. Snuffy comes along, steps on the scale and breaks it. Realizing the damage, Snuffy quickly leaves, and Big Bird ends up in the doghouse with Luis. I think @fuzzygobo mentioned that one on this forum a while ago.

    Actually, if I picked an episode, I wouldn't mind seeing episode 12 just for the sake of seeing "Spinning Wheel", Bob singing "Feeling Groovy" and the Ernie and Bert skit about scratching backs-

    Ohhhhhhh wait..... I forgot. The show is "lost." :rolleyes:

    This didn't take up the whole episode. It was an isolated street scene, preceded by the film "Hello Scale, Whaddaya Say?"
    It might have aired more than once, but not very often. It was incredibly intense seeing Luis getting that mad, and poor Bird taking the fall for Snuffy.

    Didn't help Bird's cause for having an "imaginary" friend.
