Thanks, Muppet Dude, for the help.
Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sesame Street?
Well let's see...(and I think the older members of MC might get this):
You ZOOM past Mr.Rogers Neighborhood take a left at The Electric Company and..3-2-1 CONTACT...you're there!
Kathy I love it! I just have to mention this as well: It's just past the Reading Rainbow!
And when you get to the Big Blue House, you've gone too far!
If you are an expert maybe you can help me out. Do you remember a skit where Olivia and Maria play farm girls who count sheep to fall asleep and then two sheep count people to fall asleep. I want to make sure that I'm remembering a real skit and not hallucinating. Thanks
I almost took this off topic! Glad you all caught it. I was actually wondering where the show is filmed at NOW, what address do the actors and performers go to when they are shooting the program?
This is the only address I know of:
1 Lincoln Plaza
New York, NY 10023
Sorry, that doesn't ring a bell. Maybe someone else here can help.
Corporate offices are there. I know that address. They actually shoot somewhere else.
The only city that comes to mind is Queens, NY.
do you know which season was the last to regularly include rosevelt franklin or herbert birdsfoot skits? do you know what years proffessor hastings, harvey kneeslapper and little bird stopped appearing in new skits?
Well minor muppetz, I looked at imdb.com and according to them Roosevelt Franklin skits were from 1969-1972, Professor Hastings was from 1970 only (no wonder there weren't too many!), Herbert Birdsfoot skits were from 1970-1973, Little Bird was from 1970-1986 and 1990 (I would have thought that Little Bird was ended in the 70's but I guess Fran Brill, at least occasionally, continued to do more LB skits) and Harvey Kneeslapper was from 1970 to 197? . So some time in the 70's was the final HK skit. I would guess late 70's since they made quite a bit.
most of the RF segments stopped airing no later than probbly the late 70s. at least that's how I remember it.
Just a quick question, where does Bruno the garbage man appear?
The last time I've seen HB and RF in an episode clip was 2002 (is that right?) in a sketch where they appeared at Bert's surprise party.
As for Little Bird, he has provided a few voiceless cameos in the 1980s and 1990s.
Bruno can be seen in the movie "Follow That Bird", but does not appear often. (And he'll probably never be seen again; according to Caroll Spinney, the guy inside Bruno, the puppet fell apart.) He can also be seen in the "Put Down the Duckie" special.
Oh, thanks for your help.
I never knew the puppet fell apart.
Just so everyone knows, because it is commonly forgotten or unknown, Little Bird is a GIRL. Just to remind everyone that refers to the character as a "he".
What about the "Grin and Giggle w/ Big Bird" album? There's a song called "Mr. Big Bird, Mr. Little Bird". I've never heard Little Bird referred to as a girl on the show.
I know that Little Bird's performer is female; never heard for sure that Little Bird is a "she" though.
Bart Simpson and Bobby Hill are both performed by women; as was Charlie Brown once.
