Sesame Songs Posters

    I've heard that those "Sesame Songs" videos (Sing Yourself Silly, Rock & Roll, Monster Hits, etc.) came with small collectible posters. These posters had the lyrics to almost all the songs on each video and drawings of the characters associated with them. I've only seen the Sing Yourself Silly one, but does anyone else know about these?

    Feel free to talk about them if you can, and thanks for your responses!

    I've got ones from:

    Sing Yourself Silly!
    Rock & Roll!
    Dance Along!
    We All Sing Together

    I'm hoping that I can collect more from others.

    I really LOVE Rock & Roll!

    So, could you please tell me what songs are on the poster and what characters are on it?

    I'd also like to know what the drawings on them are like, so could you please either describe them or scan them in so I can look at them?

    Thanks, and have a good night!

    Here they are. All of them are mainly watercolors by Tom Leigh:

    Monster In the Mirror featured:
    --the framed picture (for some reason, the monsters are blue and purple)
    --Grover waving to his scary image

    Telephone Rock:
    --Little Jerry talking on the phone
    --The Monotones's heads
    --The telephone operator

    You're Alive:
    --Chrissy playing the piano
    --pictures of a rock, telephone, slice of bread, a clock, a horse's head, and a rabbit's head

    Rock 'N' Roll Readers:
    --the heads of Chrissy, green Alphabeat, Telly, and Librarian reading a book

    Hip to Be a Square:;
    --Red Square and his different-shaped friends

    Count Up to Nine:
    --the Count and his bat-shaped nickelodeon, with a few bats around it

    Forty Blocks from My Home:
    --"Farley" (that's what he's called, but it's not the green version) on the bus, with a numbered sign above his head)
    --various numbered signs

    (I Can't Get No) Cooperation:
    --Mick Swagger singing in a microphone
    --the Cobble Stones playing their instrumetns

    Hand TalK:
    --Big Bird waving his hands

    The Word is No:
    --Bert and Ernie behind the brick wall, with a red "No" behind them.
    --I think there were a few other "No"'s too.

    Aside from these there's a bunch of musical notes all over the poster.

    Wubba wubba wubba!

    Nicely done, my friend!

    Is there any way you could scan just the images in, please? It would be a very good help if you could!

    Thanks for all your help, and have a good night!

    In Rock "n" Roll, whatever happened to Little Jerry and the Monotones?

    On the video, Jackman Wolf (a Muppet DJ) said that the band would appear on their show, but throughout the program they didn't show up (based on what happened in the clip; them being carted off by the police). At the end of the show, they arrive and sing their song (basically a loop of the last portion of their song).

    Anyway, Muppet Dude, since the descripts of the poster drawings sound good, do you think you should trade that poster for something else? Can't think of what...

  10. MuppetDude

    MuppetDude Well-Known Member

    Sorry, but it's not up for trade. But if there's anybody who has posters and don't really care about having them, I'll gladly trade for them. :halo:

    Need help, pleeze

    Sounds fair to me, Muppet Dude.

    So, does anyone else have these posters?

    Thanks for all your great help!

    So... Is Rock & Roll a special SS episode or some sort of video special? What I'm looking for is a descript of Jackman Wolf, that's another one of the characters from a source site that still eludes proper definition.
    Hope to hear from someone soon and have a good day.

    I have the "Sing Yourself Silly" poster, so would it be OK if I could give you that one and you can give me your copy of the "Sing Yourself Silly" one and the "Rock & Roll" one?

    I'd appreciate it SOOOO much!

    Thanks for your help, and have a good night!

    I've already got that one. Like I said before, mine are not up for trade. I'm looking for the posters of:

    Monster Hits!
    Sing, Hoot, & Howl
    Elmo's Sing-Along Guessing Game
    and the video of "Sing-Along Earth Songs".

    BTW, Count, Jackman Wolf is the DJ from a "Sesame Songs" home video("Rock and Roll), not a special. He's the lavendar wolf with bushy black/purple hair, beard, and moustache, and sunglasses, plus a ring on his finger. He'd later make a surprise appearance at the end of the "Kids' Favorite Songs" video.

    So, does anyone have any of the posters for the videos Muppet Dude mentioned? Help me out if you will, and thanks so much!

    Hmm, looks like we're in a bit of a competition. :D
  18. BlueAM

    BlueAM Well-Known Member

    So, Muppet Dude, if I give you the video Sing-Along Earth Songs, would you give me the "Rock & Roll" poster?

    Thanks again, and have a good night!

    For the third time, my posters aren't up for trade. However, there may be something else I have to trade. I have a couple of extra copies of books; is there a certain book you're looking for?

    -Monster Hits!

    -the titles
