    So I've really gotten into the Sesame Street classics episodes from iTunes and thought, "I should try making some original outlines." These outlines are between seasons 3 and 10; the golden years, if you will, of SS.
    ***I have tried to make these as original as possible. If any street scenes in my outlines were actually filmed by CTW/SW, I did not knowingly use them for the outlines.
    ***No computers were harmed in the making of these outlines.***

    Sesame Street Old School Outline

    Season 10: A rainy day on the Street.

    Sponsors: I, R, 2

    Scene 1: Gordon and Olivia welcome the viewer to the Street and take note of how nice it is outside. They are talking about the sun, the birds, and the blue skies when Oscar cuts them short. He begins complaining about the weather and mentions how he wants to be rainy, cloudy, and muddy. Gordon, Olivia, and Oscar sing “I Say Wonderful, I Say Yuck.” Just as the song ends, a thunderclap is heard and it starts raining. Olivia and Gordon run into the apartment, and Oscar chuckles happily.

Reluctant, Big Bird tries some of David’s tuna-salad sandwich, and likes it so much that he ends up eating the whole thing.

    Awesome work! Scenes 2 and 3 definitely sound like something that would have happened back in the day, for sure! You especially did an awesome job with the 1st scene- that is some great classic Oscar humor you did there! That line, “We’re no one-trick pony, bright eyes!” completely made my day!

    Either way, you really went above and beyond with this outline, and if you do another one soon, I look forward to reading it! :)

    BTW, since when was there a Dragnet parody with the letter M?

    Thanks for your comments! I appreciate it.

    This Dragnet parody is a really rare skit (1971-72) and it is featured on the Sesame Spoofs DVD set.

    Oh, that one? Well, nothing personal, but I've seen this bunches of times, so it's not really rare. Plus, it would work a lot better if this were included on an episode with the letter W as a sponsor. But don't worry about it; we all know what Big Bird said at the beginning of Season 2!

    Wasn't it, "Hello Mr. Dooper!". NOTE: This is a joke.
  8. sesamemuppetfan

    sesamemuppetfan Well-Known Member

    That's not what I was thinking about- Big Bird mispronounced Mr. Hooper's name a lot between 1969 and 1982. I was talking about his classic song "Everyone Makes Mistakes".

    W is for Whoops. Totally forgot that the missing letter was W. (And to think that I have another outline with W as a sponsor!) :o:grr::oops:

    You really outdid yourself with those 2 episodes! The line “A Leaning Tower of cookies, trust me!” was genius, and scenes 4 and 5 of the second episode really had me cracking up!

    Keep up the awesome work!! :)

    The highlights of this episode for me are Oscar's grouch camera in Scene 3 and his epically hysterical photo bomb in Scene 5! Also, the last scene is just brilliant- definitely something you'd see a lot of back then.

    Where do you get all of these awesomely well done ideas, anyway? You make them look and sound so real! It's easy to imagine them as actual episodes that aired back then.

    hey cjd874 you make the best outlines I have a question do you make requests?

    cjd874 Well-Known Member

    Well, I own the SS Old School 1 & 2 DVD sets and have watched them multiple times, and I've downloaded some of the classic episodes from iTunes. So while I'm definitely not the next Norman Stiles or Jerry Juhl, I feel that I've got a good sense of what kind of humor was used on the Street back in the day. And the SST Episode Guide on Muppet Wiki is a good source for finding cartoons, films, and Muppet sketches, too!

    Thank you, kathy26! Unfortunately I do not take requests, but I can offer help for outlines.
