    Yes, 1845 ends at night. Dr. Nobel Price is doing an experiment to see if his teddy bear will fall to the ground every time he drops it. Of course it does, and he gets so tired, he falls asleep.

    did you see my question about episode 2255?

    Yes. I knew Hoots said something like that, but it's been awhile since I've seen that episode, so I don't remember it all that well.

    sesame street episode 3010

    ssetta, I just looked at Sesame Street episode 3010 on muppet wiki and was surprised to see the SESAME STREET sign and the CHILDREN'S TELEVISION WORKSHOP logo on the screen on the last picture. Did that episode not have the closing credits at the end? I thought it would since it was a Friday episode.

    Yes, actually, it did. It was the first episode to feature the animated closing credits. And interestingly enough, it did NOT have the sound effects. That MAY have also been true with 3015 and 3020, I can't recall. As for the sign appearing on screen, I'm not sure what's with that. I remember being surprised at the time.

    reply to ssetta's 2405 answer

    Okay it had the Barkley/kids closing. But with which music, the harmonica or xylophone?

    It had the harmonica music, just like normal.

    reply to ssetta's 2405 answer again

    that's a surprise ssetta, that it had the Barkley/Kids credits, because that episode is from the late 80's and by that time, usually Friday episodes that ended at night always had the credits scrolling over New York at night, like episode 2615 did.

    I realize that episodes that ended at night usually had the xylophone music only if someone is shown sleeping, but someones there are exceptions to that rule too, like episodes 2622 (which can be found on youtube) and 3008. Like, in 2622 Gina takes Barkley home at the end, and Gordon stays with the turtle as the sponsors are announced over the xylophone music even though they are not sleeping.

    I just saw pics of episode 2571 on the muppet wiki site. And for the closing street scene, Hoots and his band are playing The Grouch Blues near Oscar's can. When they finish the song and leave, the sponsors are announced. So for this episode, which music was played during the sponsors? Because maybe it had special music instead.

    I really wish they'd go back to doing these sort of creidts only on Fridays, or more likely, every fifth episode. Just so we'd get an extra minute of show. :sing:

    I think one reason why they don't have Friday credits anymore is, not because there are technically no "Friday" episodes, but also, unfortunately, because the closing credits are so short, they can have them every day now. Because looking back, in its golden age, Sesame Street had just about the longest credit crawl I ever saw, and it was unique in the way that from 1984-1992, it was sort of made part of the street story, since they would come back after it to do the CTW announcement. And I have to say, the closing credits were always one of my favorite parts of Sesame Street. A lot of people don't even realize it, which explains the reason why a lot of Friday episodes I've come across in trades do not include the closing credits.
