Question regarding the "Sesame Street" A&E Biography...

    Hi, my name is John Kilduff, alias manoftheSTREET. I'm into "Sesame Street", even at the age of 19. Why? I like the celebrity appearances and pop-culture spoofs the show has generated.

    My question is as follows:

    On the "Sesame Street" A&E biography, when they show the highlight reel of celebrities who have appeared on the show, who are the actors/actresses/singers/sports stars/politicians/et cetera that appear? I missed this special when it first aired, and I'm ordering it soon, so I want to know what celeb "Sesame Street" clips to which I can look forward.

    LOL, you sound as if you're trying to justify liking Sesame Street at 19.

    You must be new.

    A warm welcome to you :)

    I don't recall a "celebrity reel" this time around, although that doesn't mean much since I don't have the special playing in front of me. Two celebrities that spring to mind, though, is:

    James Earl Jones: clips of him reciting the alphabet.

    Al Roker: appearing with Kermit the Frog reporting on the hurricane.

    I don't think there's a "highlight reel", but if you're talking about when Joan Ganz Cooney and Harry Smith talk about guests, here they are ( or most of them ):

    Jim Carrey: in a performance of "Happy" and "Sad" feet
    James Taylor: singing "Your Smiling Face" to Oscar
    Tony Bennett: singing "Slimey to the Moon" with Big Bird
    Little Richard: singing "Rubber Duckie"
    Ray Charles: singing "Oh, What a Beautiful Morning"
    Robin Williams: showing Elmo the many ways you can play with a stick
