Discussion in 'Sesame Street' started by The Count, Nov 10, 2009.

    I love it. Hidden Jim!
  2. Gelfling Girl Active Member

    LOL, like a hidden Mickey, but much cooler. ;):):D

    And it's great to hear Forgetful Jones was actually on Sesame Street again if but for a brief second. It'll be great to see if any other long absent characters show up. Wouldn't it be cool to see Don Music or Guy Smiley or Sherlock Hemlock again, if even just for a short bit?:search::insatiable:

    I would also like to see Placido Flamingo do a walk by

    Well, there should be another similar type cameo coming up from a long unseen Muppet, but i won't spoiler it for you if you hadn't heard about it.

    As per Guy Smiley, you're in luck - if you think seeing a silent walk-on from him would be cool, how about a street story where he not only talks but is a major part of it? This happened last season - keep your eyes peeled for a rerun of the Hurry Up You're Running Out of Time episode.
  6. GonzoLeaper Active Member

    Cool! I think I know who you're talking about, but there may be someone I don't know about still. And the Guy Smiley episode from last season sounds really cool! Thanks for letting me know about it.:wisdom::)
  7. Erine81981 Active Member

    I think i know too but won't say it either. And that Guy Smiley episode was awsome when i first saw he was going to be on i was like.......(BOOM!)....so i put myself back together. Can't for more stuff like this. And seeing Forgetful Jones was awsome. I kinda wished he would have said something. They could have just did an audio from an older episode of him saying like "Hey Maira and Luis." Knowing he's talked to both before.

    Has anyone figured out what the hidden gem in #4188 (The Cowmonster Pair) is? Someone thinks there were pictures of the past Hooper's runners in the store, and I did see some pictures on near the entrance door, but I couldn't make them out. I also think the milk carton Chris used had something, but I also couldn't make that out.

    For all those who haven't noticed them yet: Click!
  10. Gelfling Girl Active Member

    Wow, guys, now I'm even dreaming about hidden gems. :crazy: (It was some tune Murray played on a trumpet and Don Music playing piano in the background of a scene. ;))
  11. dwmckim Well-Known Member

    Don't think it's the milk carton - it has a cartoony looking animal on it but doesn't look like anything i recall from classic Sesame...just more a case of the usual fun props that are seen in Hooper's. Those pictures near the entrance door do appear to be the gem but you need to be able to see the episode in widescreen to really see it. (My PBS station has been really weird lately - sometime they keep it as widescreen, sometimes they crop the picture to fullscreen - and sometime they'll change it up in the middle of an episode. More often than not, they'll be some odd transmission glitch - it's like trained monkeys are operating the station or something! I've only been able to hold onto a handful of episodes for my video collection since i don't want to save the ones that get messed up)

    From what i could make out, one photo does seem to be of David. There also looks like there's a wedding photo there too. (Maybe Luis and Maria but couldn't see it well enough - could maybe even be Martin Robinson's on set wedding for all i know but again - if you only get to see it on fullscreen, just about the entire time you can see them, a character is blocking them.)

    Thank you for the link. It is exactly what I was looking for
  13. Drtooth Well-Known Member

    Another one in Y Quest

    Not sure if this counts, or if it's been there the entire time, but in the waiting room of Gina's Vet office, you can not so clearly see a picture of Slimey in his space suit next to his rocket. And I mean, not so clearly. The only time I got a good look at it, Gina's head was sort of in the way, and the rest of the time, it's too small to tell. But trust me... it's there.

    Years of Waldo Watching paid off.
  14. ISNorden Active Member

    I don't know whether this counts as a hidden gem or not, but someone must have been thinking of when Luis removes seven random items from the broken washing machine. (Since they were teaching a number instead of a letter this time, it was the total count of weird things that mattered...even if they had nothing else in common.)
  15. Oscarfan Well-Known Member

    The hidden gem from yesterday's episode could really only be seen in HD. Gordon's newspaper features a cover story about the falling baker from the "Song of #" series.
  16. Drtooth Well-Known Member

    Yeah... I knew it was something to do with the paper... but the problem was, since Gordon is an actor and everything, and he was acting... he kept crumpling the paper, folding it over, and basically using it like a believable prop. If only we had an amateur actor waving it around and pointing at it, basically saying "HEY!" we could have seen it... :D
  17. Oscarfan Well-Known Member

    Yeah, you could really get a good look at it when Oscar devises his plan with FLuffy.
  18. Drtooth Well-Known Member

    This is why I like the walk ons better... at least with them, you don't need to watch it in HD and be trained in the art of Waldo Watching and look under the logo. Heck, when Luis removed Teeny Little Super Guy out of the washing machine, not only did they close up on it, but they underscored his music as well.
  19. Drtooth Well-Known Member

    Today's episode didn't have a visual one, unless I missed it... but they underscored an arrangement of the dots segment from episode 1.
  20. MuppetDude Active Member

    Yeah, that's gotta be the hidden gem. What a nice shout-out to the first episode!
