    Somebody posted a thread a while back saying that they had a recording of the special off of their cassette player. I can't seem to find that thread. I haven't even been able to contact that guy, considering that he may not be on the forum anymore. Hope I can find that thread though.

    Hope the guy is still with us though.

    Woah! You're very lucky! Did this special have a laugh track like they did with Julie on Sesame Street?
    I never had a chance watching this ultra-rare special.
    Looks like fun!

    BUMP, for useful reason. So, a short while ago, some clips of the special were shown at a Joe Raposo tribute at MoMI. The full show audio was captured and posted by the Muppet Cast:


    The "Out to Lunch" songs come in a little after an hour; it's the opening number "We're in Charge" and Barbara Eden's "Nearly Missed."

    It's just as nutty as I imagined it would be. I was just thinking, with all the recent Sesame Street episodes popping up hopefully this rarity will show up for all of us one of these days. Fingers crossed. :fanatic:

    Have there ever been any updates on this? I'd still love to see this special one day.... I tend to feel like if "A Special Sesame Street Christmas" can get a DVD release, hopefully "Out to Lunch" can as well.:):wisdom:

    If anyone out there has it i hope they upload the full special on YouTube.

    I heard a rumor this was on YouTube during its early days, or at least bits and pieces of it.

    Yeah, odd this hasn't seen an official release. It has zero controversy surrounding it (unlike other SS lost media pieces), so where is it? It seems like it would've been ideal for a DVD release like ten years ago.

    @zns, I enjoy reading this thread and seeing your dedication to finding the special! :wisdom:


    I love Joe Raposo's music; so beautifully melancholic.

    I've been thinking, if there is anyone on this forum who has connections with the Henson archives, maybe they can find a way to bring in a raw copy for all of us to see. Just a thought.

    And thanks Blue Frackle. I'm always looking for some rare Henson programs. I'm also trying to find the Mike Douglas appearances from 1966 as well as the Boston Pops special from 1971 with the Sesame Street cast.

    I second Blue Frackle's notion. Thanks for your work in finding rare Henson specials.:super:
