    I thought everyone would be interested to know, I have 56 different Sesame Street episodes from 1984 and 1985 that my parents taped off TV for me back when we first got a VCR. I know there is a lot of Classic Sesame Street fans here at Muppet central. So if anyone is interested, please either send me an Email, or a private message here on the board. Hope to hear from some of you soon.

    Hello. I am interested in those Sesame Street episodes that you're talking about. I have lots of Sesame-related shows (Square One TV, Mathnet Specials Noggin episodes of Electric Company, specials etc.). I am also looking for the five dancers dressed in blue sequins segment where they were doing a production number on the number 5. I was hoping you have that. Anyhow, e-mail me at stevesadlerjr@yahoo.com Thank You.

    I don't know if you know about this site, but there is a website called Muppet Wiki, which anybody can edit. If you are not a member, you should join, and add pages for any of those episodes that the Wiki does not currently have information on (or if you do not want to join, maybe people who get copies from you can add pages for them).

    I would be very interested. Very interested indeed. I don't know if I have anything to trade for it that you'd want, but I do have 27 episodes spanning 1969 to 1992. Some are Noggin episodes that probably everyone else on here already has, but some are rarer. I have one from '88, 3 from '91 and 3 from '92 that I introduced into the "community" a couple of years ago. I'm not sure how far they've spread around by now. I've put a list of what I have below. Let me know if you'd like descriptions of them. (you can find them in another thread, but I forget which one. I also have a few other non-Muppet odds and ends I could trade. Email me at marbles471@yahoo.com if yer inner'sted. I'd love to find some '80s eps.

    I figured I'd update this thread. I'm sorry I haven't responded to a lot of you. I moved several months ago, and didn't have internet access. But for any of you who have old SS episodes, and are still interested in trading. Please send me a private message and let me know. Thanks

    Former Sesame Street Child Actress Looking for 1980's Episodes

    Hi There,

    I was a child actress on Sesame Street from 1979-1989 and I am looking for the those episodes where I appeared.

    In the early 1980's my mother's house was broken into and the VHS tapes that had most episodes recorded were stolen.

    Today, I do not have those memories as keepsakes.

    I have tried contacting pbs, ctv; however, I have had no success.
    I have no idea of episode numbers or names... but there were many!

    The additional loss is that my 2 sisters were also child actresses during the same time and later into the early 1990's.

    With so much history with Sesame Street, and now being a mother of 2...
    I am on a mission!!!

    Last by certainly not the least...this part of my life...was very important to my mother..because she was surviving a divorce and her happiness was taking the 3 of us to Sesame Street.
    For all her love and strength to do this for her children even when she was at her worst time emotionally...
    I am trying to find this to also present it as a gift to her.

    As you can tell, Sesame Street holds alot of meaning for me...

    So PLEASE if there is anyone out there that is able to help...

    Please contact me..

    Thank you so much,
    Evy Grace

    Were you involved in any famous sketches with any of the Muppets one on one?

    or were you involved more with a group of kids in said sketches?

    Hi there,

    I believe both. I know for sure my sister. I was so young I can't remember with whom in the singled out scenes.
    I know I had a skit with Telly on roller-skates. Had one-on-one conversations with with Big Bird, Grover..was a grouchkeeter and spoke with Oscar...there was so much, but at this point it's difficult to remember

    Hi and welcome to MC EvyGrace.

    Um, if you don't mind me asking... What particular sketch do you definitively remember being in? It may seem small, but often we can do a bit of tracking and some people might know the sketch/episode in question.
    Also... I happen to organize a quite completist listing of Muppet characters and human chracters involved in the Henson universe of productions called the Muppet Listings, always updating with new information of course, the fifteenth version is the one currently posted if you care to do some digging in the Classic Muppets section of the forum.
    Mayhaps if we knew your name or your sisters' we could find the sketch/episode quicker. If you feel more comfortable sending this information via private message, you can certainly do so though you'll need 10 posts before doing so.
    Look forward to hearing from you, there's a person I know who might be able to help but like I've said, we'd need a bit of information first.

    Hope you can understand and have a great Friday the 13th!

    Do you know if you would still get residuals if your sketches were repeated or if your episodes were rerun or released on video? Do you remember when the last time you got a residual was? Could you have gotten any residuals for any video or DVD releases, or from when reruns were shown on Noggin from 1999-2001?

    Thanks for the info Evy... The one where they're in Puerto Rico... Was this Episode 1316 María's surprise birthday? Cause that's the one I have, in which case I can definitely say who to contact to get it from.
    If you know, did your family portray almost all of María's family? Would like to get the info added to the list.

    Will have to check when I get back home, but I think I have a sketch with a girl named Tanya as well.
    Hope to hear from you soon and have a good day.

    reply to count

    I'm not sure if it was maria's birthday....it was a celebration for something...

    no...my family just came on and off because ...long story...but to sum it up..

    my aunt was friends with the Talent scout at that time...

    and she brought her over to my house to meet me...becaus eshe thought I had a "vivid imagination" from there she just feel in love with all of us kids..and well there you go...

    in terms of relationship no the show...we were not related.

    There was only one "Tanya".. I'm sure it has to be her!

    Tanya appeared on alot of episodes..probably more than me...

    thanks for all your help

    Hi Evy... Some info. After checking here at home, there's an episode I happen to have numbered 2407, which features a segment with Grover teaching the word "Help" with a girl named Tanya. Not sure if that's the "breakdancing" episode as you named it though.
    If you're interested in this and 1316 then I suggest you contact Boober_Gorg, he's got the biggest SS episode library out of all of us. Also, when talking to him, ask him if he has any of the other episodes you're looking for.
    Hope this helps and have a good day.
