    If you're referring to the episodes being donated to the American Archives of Public Broadcasting (and I might have gotten the thing wrong - the thing with locations in Boston and Washington, DC), they're not being remastered, just digitized (I thought all episodes were digitized long ago - at any rate, Sesame Workshop is sending digital copies) and donated for the public to see, and they've pretty much said that the place will eventually get every episode.

    But I haven't been online much this morning, so it's possible there could have been a news report that I haven't seen yet.

    I'm sure Minor Muppetz will be very happy about this: Sesame finally released the Miami Mice bit with the Count.

    After seeing this one in English, I prefer Kermit’s and Ernie’s, the whole joke about clothes wasn’t funny

    Brace yourselves.

    For all those of you wondering, I can make up a hypothesis that they banned the latter half of this Snerf "Shorter and Longer" 2-part skit from Iftah Ya Simsim, given that Arab viewers must've interpreted the Snerf cuddling up to Betty Lou as a sexual moment. ={
    Oddly, I don't see why they kept it in Rechov Sumsum (or any other foreign coproductions, I guess...?).

    Not only am I happy, but I am happy that they uploaded a Miami Mice segment period, when Sesame Workshop previously hasn't officially uploaded any of them online before or put any on DVD (it's unfortunate Miami Mice was mentioned in press releases for the Best of Sesame Street Spoofs! DVDs when they ended up not being released), around the time of the 40th anniversary the official Sesame Street Facebook page actually linked to an unofficial upload of one segment.

    For years I thought I'd remembered an additional Miami Mice segment but didn't remember it having The Count or any familiar characters, but watching this one, the part with the closet is actually familiar with me.

    I've seen a few comments from fans who say it was kinda dull. For the last few years, I wondered if I would feel the same about it if I saw it, if the rare factor was the main thing going for it while otherwise being lame (and it's main value being it's rarity and maybe completist sake). But I really genuinely enjoyed it more than I expected (and maybe the rare factor is hidden in my mind, maybe I'll care less in a few days). Can't decide if I like it better than the other two or not (or if this will continue to be my "go to" Miami Mice segment to put on DVD wishlists).

    I was expecting The Count to need a ride because his car had problems, but I don't think that was mentioned here. There doesn't seem to be any real explanation for why The Count needed a ride (did he think he couldn't drive and count at the same time?). If he needed a ride, he's lucky he was within walking distance of the Miami Mice office (I can't imagine he took a bus or taxi there so he could be driven to where he needs to be, just use that transportation).

    I think we got some nice surprises yesterday. I was happy to see the Miami Mice sketch with The Count and I had never even heard of the Snerf sketch

    If it was actually banned for that reason I would kill myself laughing

    Really? Because it was quite common in the 90s.

    I don't really watch to much of the 90's stuff, I'm more interested in the 70's and 80's stuff

    Bro, I know already. My prediction about the 2nd part of the Snerf skit getting banned form Iftah Ya Simsim IS an assumption/hypothesis. There's really no official info for why half of the skits get banned/pulled from rotation at certain points. Like, ya know, we all think The Count Orders a Hot Dog was banned because of parents finding the Count hypnotizing Grover and Grover fainting TOO far for kids to watch, but that may not be an official reason. And with the Dexter's Lab Dial M for Monkey episode "Barbequor", the reason for the episode's ban being that [Silver Spooner was being a stereotype of gay men and Krunk getting drunk in the end of the episode] was a theory that had been rumored for so long, but in real life, the episode could be banned because Silver Surfer's creators from Marvel had figured that Silver Spooner was a misuse of their character + potential copyright infringement, since Silver Spooner looks ENTIRELY identical to Silver Surfer with NO alterations to his physical appearance. However, whatever that is, the companies usually don't release any official info for the banning of certain episodes of shows, so our assumptions of some shorts' banning are just (unreliable) theories/hypotheses.

    They don't ban shorts, they pull them out of rotation. Saying they banned it is an exaggeration.

    Also, these aren't hypotheses. These are any old assumptions you're pulling out of your :zany:ss.
