    Wow, I finally saw the "First and Last" skit with proto-Grover. First time in over 3 decades.

    And in this sketch, at last we learned that Beautiful Day Monster's real name is "Fred". Listen when p-Grover switches places to be second-to-last in line. Not once but twice he boasts "Fred's last!". Pardon the pun, but I think that was the first -- and last -- time they ever referred to that monster by name.

    I have read that there were also sketches where Beautiful Day Monster was called "Ralph" and "Harold". I guess they couldn't decide on a proper name for him. Either that, or didn't think he was important enough to have the same name every time it was mentioned.

    After watching some of those Harvey Kneeslapper skits,on youtube.com, I now realize why the laughing of that muppet(Harvey Kneeslapper) was such a strain on Frank.

    That's a cool phto, but does anybody know who the woman performing Beautiful Day Monster in that photo is? Could it be Jane Henson? Or maybe Rollin Krewson (I'm not sure if she eeever performed on Sesame Street, nor do I know if she was eve working for the Jim Henson Company at the time)?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but it was probably Jane, sense she was doing Ernie's hand at the time.

    Harvey Kneeslapper! I didn't get a chance to look through those much. I knew I was missing something. I did look at the original Grover in the "First and Last" sketch. I'd describe his old voice to be more like Sam the Eagle. Plus I looked through other good clips with modern Grover that aren't seen on the show anymore. I saw the one where he sold Kermit a nose warmer. I'd still like to see the one where Telly sells him a headwarmer though. I'll have to see whatelse I can find.

    Does anyone, by chance, have the means to upload the infamous "red hot I-beam" segment?

    I think Woobie has it. However she has to look through all of her tapes (and she's got tons) to find it. It may be awhile

    Does anyone know if we can save these onto our computer? It takes me a long time to download it, and I'd like to keep it. Btw can you get a virus by viewing it online?

    Check out CleanGultch's link a few posts earlier. You can use it for downloading videos from youtube.com amongst other sites

    And no, I don't think you can get a virus from watching it online (that'd probably be even safer than downloading the videos)

    I wanna know the same thing. I have a Macintosh...and the players I have are Real Player, QT, & Windows Media Player. The browser I'm using is Safari, & in Safari, I can go into an option called ACTIVITY..to see what exactly is being uploaded or downloaded. I can option-double click on any download & it'll download onto my desktop. I have many FLASH animations/games I got off Sesame Street's website by doing that, because I have dial-up, it takes too long to go on there all the time & play the same game...so I play them offline.

    Also, if you want to download Sesame Street clips...you can get one of those peer to peer programs & search for some on there. I found a few that my son loves...like Rubber Duckie & that other Ernie segment where Cookie Monster tries to steal his pillow by ringing a bell a few times for distraction....and the ladybugs picnic. I'm trying to get most of the segments that are on the Sing Yourself Silly video. My 1 1/2 year-old loves that video....his favorite is The Honker Duckie Dinger Jamboree & Jellyman Kelly. My wife rented another VHS video & now he's in love with Ernie's We Are The Insects Of Your Neighborhood & Bah Bah Bamba. It brung back memories for me because the video had that old Hard Working Dog segment.

    Hey Animalizer, I have a Mac as well but when you go to Activity,is it in the "Window" menu? And when you're there, what do you decide is the Flash out of all those bits & pieces? Thanks dude!

    Burning I-Beam

    I'd like a copy of the burning I-Beam too. Actually, I'd like to have the "how saxophones are made" and "baking a cake" skits also. Unfortunately, I don't have any Sesame Street stuff to trade for it.

    Is it possible to find these skits somewhere online?

    How to obtain online flash things on a Mac.

    ACTIVITY is in the Window menu. When you are loading up anything in Flash, look for a .SWF file. Most work offline, there are a few that don't. When you go offline to play it..have Safari open the file...then you can play it.

    Cool...today they have the "Subway" song on there!!! Haven't seen that in years.

    Do they take requests? Love to see the number painter aka Mad Painter (Paul Benedict). Wonder if they also have the Dragnet Parody sketch....
