    in some mumford sketches, when mumford goes on stage, (especially the pineapple segment) you can clearly see jerry's bald head and some other guy doing mumfords arms. when mumford turns around i saw his shirt sleeve end and jerrys arm going through it.

    i found another major one. in the song "its a circle" sung by bert and ernie, when bert is singing his part of the song, you can see that eric jacobson was alittle to silly and when bert said "hey!" you can see the whole body of bert and a bit of erics shirt sleve. he mustve been wearing a white long sleeved shirt.

    I saw one where Kevin Clash's arm was clearly visible coming out from under Wolfgang

    Funny, because it was Frank's voice that was being heard.

    I'm not sure if this is considered a blooper or not, but in the episode where Little Jerry and The Monotones did a comeback concert in 2000, the groups number 1 fan wasn't there...whoever that was. :confused:

    I love that song about reading I have susan's part memorized. My Mom saved the tape that has that song clip on an episode but I don't remember which episode I just remember it is at the end of a tape! I hope that song is released on a DVD set someday!


    I love Sesame Street Blooper i laughed so hard!

    I remember one time, Sesame Street was experiencing some techincal difficulties, and since the show was temporarily stopped, they show a photo of Big Bird standing next to the Sesame Street Light post. As the background music plays, the announcer mentions that they are experiencing some technical difficulties and that they will try and fix it as soon as possible, so just stay put. Then the announcer mentions that he found a muppet monster in their viewing machine biting and chewing on the wires. And that they will get rid of the monster and fix the problem as soon as possible. So just be patient and don't go away kids, we'll get the show back on air as soon as possible. I guess the announcer was just trying to make the problem sound more kid friendly and informing them that they will have if fixed soon.

    Who cares? You don't own the thread, thus, you don't control what people post in it. I've made that clear to you before.

    If the post that dinoboy made isnt "appropriate" for this thread, then neither are sketches where the tape skips or the sound is warped, since that could be from a PBS affiliate.

    So no one wants to hear the story about the time I watched Elmo's world, and the tape skipped.... Elmo was laughing for 2 straight minutes and I didn't even realize anything was wrong.

    sorry i meant that since other posts have been made about tape glitches and stuff, then dinoboy's post should be valid too.

    lol. "I didn't even realize anything was wrong."

    The reference to "here in this ring" is probably a holdover from an album track, which wouldn't have had any visuals at all (go figure); a lot of songs from Sesame Street albums got dubbed into "new" Muppet sketches in the mid-70s. Still, I'm pretty sure that CTW had the technology to show flashbacks and cut between scenes back then...why couldn't they have shown a flashback to the circus, or to the operating room when the seamstress-turned-surgeon did her verse?

    Someone at your PBS station had a great sense of humor and a knack for talking to kids creatively; the CTW staff should've hired him if they'd had the chance.

    If you watch the classic film where they're looking for letters and the kid is saying them, the part where they zoom towards the X, you can see a little bit of the camera man on the window though you have to look very hard.

    Is this YouTube video the "looking for letters" clip you meant? I did indeed see the reflection of a TV camera (but not the operator's face) around time marker 1:45.

    I didn't say you could see his face though you might be able to see his body a little bit and at the end you can see him move.
