Discussion in 'Classic Sesame Street' started by Al Hempker, Feb 2, 2006.
A great old promo for a new Sesame season:
I didn't know there was a promo for the My Sesame Street Home Video series. And seeing that this promo comes from the end of the "Put Down the Duckie" release and includes some clips from The Best of Elmo it must be from near the end of Random House's contract, so it must not have been in very many video releases.
Big Bird on The Donny and Marie Show, 1977:
A promo for The Dinah Shore Show with Big Bird and Oscar, from 1977:
Haha, it was awesome to see Big Bird and hear those old classic laugh track laughs from the old days together in one thing!
Isn't this where Caroll got himself in trouble with Oscar for teasing Richard Dawson? He mentions an the incident in his book being on Dinah Shore, but I noticed Dawson isn't in the promo, so I guess maybe he was on her show more than once?
I didn't know about that. What happened exactly?
Caroll was appearing on Dinah Shore with Oscar, and Richard Dawson happened to have been the guest before him; at the time, Dawson supposedly wasn't proud of having done Hogan's Heroes, and didn't like being associated with the series, even though it's what made him famous (pre-Match Game and Family Feud)... Caroll thought it would be funny to try to have Oscar banter with him, so he had Oscar say, "So Dawson, how's everything over at Hogan's Heroes? Heh-heh-heh!" Needless to say, Dawson was not impressed, and when he took the floor, neither Caroll nor Oscar got another word in edge wise for the rest of the show.
A Spanish dub of a street scene/sketch with The Count and Gladys the Cow, mid-late 1970s:
I think that was taken from Episode 1014 (Gordon and Susan wake up). The description of the episode says "A cow wants to be counted as a bird in order to get some breadcrumbs."
Some Fisher-Price Movie Viewer cartridges from the 70s, including Sesame Street:
The first season "forwards and backwards" sketch, partially in english (the first half is in hebrew).
I found a segment that I've been wanting to see for quite awhile now, the one where Telly sells Kermit a head warmer. I now know what the headwarmer looks like!
Interestingly, according to the upload date this was posted last year, but I could have sworn I searched "kermit and telly" a number of times since it was uploaded.
Here's a Coronet commercial for the "Follow That Bird" Sweepstakes that start at 1:12.
1) The song speeds way up. What kind of drugs was that drummer on?
2) Why didn't they show any cast regulars on the show? I could TOTALLY see Maria, David, Luis, Susan, Big Bird, Grover, Ernie, Herry Monster, and Roosevelt Franklin dancing to this music. (In a separate shot, Oscar would pop out of his can briefly, look towards the arbor area, look at the camera in disgust, and then slam the lid down again...hee hee.)
I've searched both YouTube AND the SST video page, to no avail...
Does any one have the William Wegman film where Fay tries on different disguises, and V/O kids try to guess what she's dressed as, such as a "ladybug" and "Kermit the Dog"?
I think I have seen that one on You Tube as part of a full episode though. I can't remember which one it was though, I'm sorry I can't narrow it down better for you. Maybe you can search that on Muppet Wiki and find the episode number.
I looked at the episode numbers of where they included the Kermit the Dog clip but none of the full versions are up on Youtube.
Right. I looked at Muppet Wiki at the episode numbers associated with the particular film, and none of those episodes are on YouTube.
Really? I know I saw it somewhere before. Maybe it was one of those iTunes episodes. I guess I'll have to think about it. Alternatively, maybe the particular ep I saw was taken down. I don't know.
I guess if it was on YouTube once, maybe it had to be removed because other content being administered by Lionsgate or some thing.
