Closing Classic Sketches on The Street We Live On

    The coment in another thread about Forgetful Jones singing the wrong vowel int he Oklahoma sketch (1988 in the end clips) helped me to finally know just what in the world was going on there. It was while I was in college, and there were college kids who watched it as study breaks, so I could have seen it, but didn't. And so this was the first time I've seen part of what must have been a hilarious segment.

    Anyway, that led me to wonder, what else do I not know from that closing segment that would have been interesting to have seen? Most of the earlyones I remember from my childhood - Ladybug Picnic, King of Eight, Bert & Ernie w/the stehoscope (I was always a doctor on Halloween so I bet I really loved that one then, though I know the banana int he ear was my favorite), the deaf librarian, etc.

    But, some of them, I don't remember, but I aam interested in what was going on.
    C3PO and R2D2 must have been just after I stopped watching much, I would have been 8.5-9 if they were in in '78. What did they do there? Were they just friends of BB's or wht?

    Kermit singing X marks the spot or something in the one right before the Oklahoma one, was that from a Monsterpiece Theater one or something?

    Big Bird's distraught over his nest being destroyed or something - was this a post-9/11 one? It seemed like part of what must have been a pretty touching one.

    I remember hearing about Mr. Hooper's death, & elsewhere on the 'Net read the transcript of the street scenes there, really moving. Also glad they included Maria & Luis' wedding, as well as Mr. Hooper. And the scene where Big Bird has "been telling everyone all along there was a Snuffleuphagus." (sp?) Was Snuffy imaginary int he '70s, or do I remember himt he time or two in the early '80s when I'd watch it with my cousins?
