    Sofa's an actual company. I think it released the LONG OUT OF PRINT Muppet Magic DVD. I stress long out of print.

    I've talked about this somewhere else before, but there ARE some companies that will add a "Contains Content from" disclaimer, or that will run ads on the side of the screen, but let people KEEP the videos up. At the very least, there are companies that will give you a friendly warning to take it down. When a small potatoes company gets so bitter that it pulls down EVERYTHING and kills someone's account, yet not offer it themselves or even get their own page to put it up in GOOD quality, it's just fan UN-friendly.

    Someone uploaded the News Flash sketch about Sleeping Beauty's kiss. Even though this was recorded by being shot in front of a TV, this is the DVD version;unlike the official version on YouTube, it uses the 1986 News Flash title card instead of the original superimposed version! Was this an edit done for the DVD, or did SesameWorkshop use a late 1980s/early 1990s copy of the sketch?

    By the late-1980s (I believe) pretty much all Sesame Street News sketches were shown with the late-1980s opening logo on the show, regardless of whether that logo was originally used. Monsterpiece Theater also did this whenever a new opening was added (though I recall seeing a season 30 episode where the long "panning-around-the-room" Monsterpiece Theater logo was used, after I'd seen the thrid opening). At sesamestreet.org many Sesame Street News sketches are shown with their original logos, but there are some early ones shown with the replaced logo as well (including Humpty Dumpty and Rupunzel).

    Both Sesame Street News sketches on the 40th anniversary DVD are shown with the late-1980s logo (I assume it wasn't originally on the Foot Snuggies segment, but I don't think any of us have access to a copy outside of the DVD, so I don't think any of us could check).

    The Foot Snugglies segment on YouTube has the mid 1970s/early 1980s News Flash logo, like when it first aired in 1980-1981. This version is somewhat identical to the 1986 logo but is a bit larger, and has two black stars and two yellow stars, instead of four yellow stars. CTW used this version from around 1974 up until 1984.

    BTW, I referred to the newer one as the 1986 logo because that is when I recall it first came out, on the newer segments at the time. An interesting fact on the Humpty Dumpty sketch is, when it fades from the 1986 News Flash logo to the sketch, if you play it in slow-motion or freeze-frame it at the right point, you can partially see the original News Flash logo! Anyone else catch that?

    I searched youtube and the only copy I could find was a copy taken from the DVD (which cuts out the behind-the-scenes photos shown over the first few seconds of the clip).

    Was it THIS?

    That version is indeed the one with the original 1970s News Flash logo intact. But when I meant YouTube I meant this Humpty Dumpty one, where if you look closely when it fades to Kermit and company, you can make out part of the old 1970s News Flash logo:

    I think this was the version shown on Episode 2558 back in 1989, if I'm not mistaken.

    Sesame Workshop added a clip to youtube called Spring is Here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uwpVBZQTUNU

    The clip is also at sesamestreet.org (I think it was just added but I don't kn ow for sure). The clip is interesting, I can't remember if I heard the full song before but a couple of clips are in the opening montage in Sesame Street: 20 and Still Counting.

    I like how they're adding more foreign stuff. Hopefully, they'd be able to add dubbed clips, too. :)

    I decided to put my Sesame Street videos to private

    Because of copyright claim of Lionsgate Entertainment, I decided to put my Classic Sesame Street video clips to private. I do not want Lionsgate to banned my Youtube account.:boo::eek::mad:

    Lionsgate is only removing stuff from the 20 Years special. Cool your jets.

    Hey, can anybody do me a favor?

    Does anyone out there think they could post the street scenes from episode 1740 on YouTube? I taped this off Unpaved from Noggin, however it was in the middle of the night, so I had to keep the volume turned down... unfortunately, I accidentally kept the CABLE BOX volume down, rather than the TV set's volume, so now my taping of the episode barely has any sound.

    'Fred, get me a 20'

    Just wanted to let everyone know that 'Fred, get me a 20' starring Joe Raposo is now on YouTube! It's only an audio file, but the distinctive music and quips by Joe should 'come back' to any seasoned Sesame Street fan from the 1970's in virtually no time!

    'Fred' video now on YouTube as well

    Now all you Classic Sesame buffs can have twice as much fun now (er, make that 20 times!) since the VIDEO version of 'Fred, get me a 20' is now on YouTube!

    Is there any way at all we can nicely request Sesame Workshop to upload this one in English? Which way would be most effective?

    I'm working on an exhibit for our library (part of which will be online) and it can link to different clips from YouTube and elsewhere. I plan to use the screenshot from this clip demonstrating the weird, old monsters that used to be on Sesame Street...but I wish this clip was in English!

    That...and I wish Sesame Workshop would upload the Hippies singing "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds". (Yes, a clip like that did exist)!

    Has anyone actually TRIED commenting on their youtube profile? Even I haven't. Maybe if we request them on their own page, they can upload stuff for us.
  19. Convincing John

    Convincing John Well-Known Member

    Well, I did just that. I sent 'em a nice compliment on their site and a polite request. I'll let the Forum know if my comment was successful.

    I don't believe most companies who have YouTube profiles really reply to any comments left either on their videos or their profiles... I think they pretty much just upload their videos, and go around searching for other similar videos to flag for copyright infringement.

    Only exception with SW is that they allow people to posts videos from SST, so long as they receive the video statistics... except for content that's "owned" by Lionsgate. Come to think of it, I'm surprised that after all these years, Warner Bros hasn't taken down FTB, all of which (save for the closing credits) have been uploaded, and have been on YouTube for at least a couple of years now, if now even a little longer, because WB is a NOTORIOUS company for removing copyrighted material... even if they don't even own the content, but rather either distributed it (like a syndicated cartoon), or if there's a Turner-Broadcasting channel logo (ala Cartoon Network) on the video.
