I have recently noticed, with the new release of the "Sesame Street Spoofs" DVD set, that "Mysterious Theater" had been excluded. Likewise on the "40 Years of Sunny Days" DVD set (I thought they'd include one for one of the 1989-1993 seasons!) Additionally, only one of them is available on SesameWorkshop's official website: "The Case of the Missing Toast." I'm starting to have that nasty feeling that maybe SesameWorkshop might have unofficially banned the "Mysterious Theater" segments, probably for them being too scary for kids (look at the numbers of online comments saying how frightening they were!) This wouldn't be the first time either; there was episode 0847 from 1976, which was pulled shortly after its initial airing due to the street story with the Wicked Witch of the West (played none other by Margaret Hamilton herself) scaring a huge number of children. Then there was that infamous "Crack Master" animated segment, which according to THIS blog, had been banned after airing for a few years due to it being extremely frightening for younger viewers. A shame, really. Aside from that creepy intro (the theme music did scare me quite a bit, along with the wolf howling and thunder sound effects, but I wasn't bothered by the visuals or animation or the Vincent Twice scenes), the segments themselves were done really well. They were pretty much on par with the quality of "Monsterpiece Theater" (though not as "classy!") Suppose they continued the series past 1993? I could see them replacing Vincent Twice with a Diana Rigg-like Muppet (hmm, how about a swine version named Diana Pigg?) and maybe featuring more detectives. Any comments?
