    Number 152 features (drum roll, please) Lefty the Salesman! Here, he tries to sell letters to the adults. Plus, Big Bird and Grover learn about DANGER, the Count hires Ernie to answer his telephone, James Earl Jones says the alphabet, and many classic cartoons are included (Willie Wimple, Jazz Spies, Martian Beauty, G is for Giggle).

    Sesame Street Old School Outline 152

    Season 6: Lefty the Salesman sells letters/Big Bird and Grover learn about DANGER

    Sponsors: C, G, 9

    Scene 1: Lefty the Salesman sneaks onto Sesame Street and backs up into Bob, startling them both. Lefty asks Bob if he’d like to buy something special, and opens his trench coat to reveal a letter C. Lefty tells Bob about the great words that start with C (coat, candy, and cricket), but Bob has no need for a C. He would prefer a B because his name starts with B. Lefty cuts him off and leaves to find “another customer with more alphabetical appreciation!”

    Cartoon: C is for Canary

    Muppets: Kermit lectures about the hand

    Film/Song: Henson #9

    Scene 2: Lefty meets Susan and offers her a letter G. Lefty lists some G words (go, grocer, and glasses) to pique Susan’s interest, but Susan doesn’t want a G. Besides, she already has a collection of G’s, which she pulls out of her purse. Lefty: “This street is getting weirder and weirder by the minute…”

    Cartoon: G is for Gorilla

    Film: Baby lions on a trail

    Muppets: The Count hires Ernie to answer his telephone for him

Lefty says that both letters will cost him a quarter, which Mr. Hooper gives to him. To show his gratitude, Mr. Hooper also gives Lefty a cheeseburger and a garden salad on the house.

    Muppets: Bert notices that Ernie is taking glasses of water out of the apartment. When Bert presses him for an explanation, Ernie says that the faucet broke, so he’s bailing water before the apartment floods…but unfortunately he’s too late.

    Cartoon/Song: “That’s About the Size of It” (by Bud Luckey)

    Scene 4: Big Bird explains what the word DANGER means, but he doesn’t notice the DANGER sign next to Biff and Sully’s cement truck, which is unloading wet cement right where he’s standing. Biff and Sully return with some refreshments from Hooper’s Store to find Big Bird stuck in the cement. Biff: “Oh brother, Sully…we can’t leave our truck alone for a minute!”

Biff: “Gee whiz, Sully…we can’t leave that manhole alone either, huh?”

    Muppets/Song: Cookie Monster sings, “C is for Cookie”

    Cartoon: C is for Cap

    Cartoon: Small, smaller, and smallest animals

    Scene 6: Oscar has a DANGER sign outside his trashcan. Grover asks what this means, so Oscar explains that “danger” means to be careful and watch out. Grover wonders why he should be careful, and Oscar tells him that he’s going to play tag. Grover: “Oscar, that is silly! Tag is not a dangerous game!” Oscar: “Oh yeah? Well I’m playing tag with my pet rhinoceroses! Tell that to them!” As the game begins, the street starts shaking, scaring Grover out of his mind.

    Scene 4: Bob and Gordon notice what Maria’s doing to her hat, and they think she’s gone bananas.

Thinking she’s been fooled, Maria angrily yells at Oscar and throws the hat into the can. After she storms off, Oscar emerges and tells the guys that he really does want the hat after all, but he wouldn’t accept it from “Miss Smiley-Face” unless she acted really, really grouchy toward him.
