    There is an old song/segment from Sesame Street that has the words "My Name is Fred. They call me Fred. When I get tired, I go home and go to..." -- or something like that. I've looked all over You Tube for this and can't find it... does anybody know what the real name of this would be? A million "thank yous" to anybody who can help.
    :confused:

    Wow - now there's a memory jogger, i just barely remember it based on your description...possible this could have even been Electric Company?

    Course today, it would remind me a lot of "I Wanna Be a Cowboy" by Boys Don't Cry. :)

    Thanks for your help, guys... when you google for this you find that it's credited to both SS and Electric Company... if anybody out there in muppet-land sees this thread and knows the answer, please let me know! :)

    :)

    It was definitely SS because I saw it there and such a cartoon wouldn't of fit in with the SS formet.

    oh my god, my brother and i have looked EVERYWHERE for this

    i remember the animation was shaky and i think fred was wearing an orange jumpsuit

    what i remember of the lyrics:

    my name is fred
    they call me fred
    and when i eat i butter up a slice of...
    (irritated guy comes in and says...)
    BREAD!

    :(duh nuh nuh nuh)

    my name is fred
    they call me fred
    and every night when i get tired
    (irritated guy says...)
    he gets FIRED

    i would *KILL* for this - anyone who has it will be my hero for life if they can hook it up :)
