Discussion in 'Sesame Street' started by The Count, Nov 10, 2009.
If anybody has video that an be posted of the Henson kids please post it. I would love toy see it.
Touche; just everyone seemed so excited to "see" Brian.
Video's up folks! Enjoy!
Nice job Oscarfan!
I loved spotting all those hidden gems, especially Marty Robinson and characters from the past. I wished I could have seen all of the episode where Sherlock Hemlock, Herry and Jerry Nelson make an appearance together.
Call it a Classic Sesame Street "I Spy"
Actually, it was Eric. If you listin closely, you can hear his Grover voice.
The "Wing in a Sling" episode was recently added to sesamestreet.org, and I think I found another hidden gem that hasn't been mentioned. At the beginning Big Bird sings a variation of "Row Your Boat", going "Roll, roll, rollerskate, gently down the street, merily merily merily, life is such a treat!" Now, I wonder if that was referencing Don Music's version of the song. The only big difference is the "Rollerskate" part in place of "Drive your car". Hmmmmm.....
Also, I wonder if Kermit's cameo could be considered an honorary hidden gem. Of course there are things preventing that... It was in Elmo's World instead of the street story, it was produced for season 39, each season since Henson sold the rights to the Sesame Street characters (with the exception of season 33) has featured at least one insert with Kermit (I think this is the first in a long time to feature two Kermit appearances), and everybody knows who Kermit is, even if they aren't aware that he was a regular on Sesame Street at one time.
I would credit Kermit's cameo as one of the times SW got permission to use Kermit after they lost rights to him in 2001 like Everybody Be Yo'Self.
Luckily, it looks like that one ("Big Bird's wing in a sling") will be on PBS again next week (at least in my area, check your listings just to make sure). I missed it the first time too, so I'll try to catch it this time!
This may be a little redundant for us, but in case anyone is interested, Sesamestreet.org has an official guide to some of the season 40 hidden gems on this web page (you have to scroll down a bit);
Very disappointing. I was hoping to see some "here's some stuff you fans missed that only WE know," but it looks EXACTLY like they just took the Muppet Wiki article and reposted it.
There's also at least one episode missing from their list. But I still thought it was interesting that they are acknowledging the hidden gems.
Separate names with a comma.
