    When Jerry was alive and performed Mumford for the last time it was with Abby Cadabby in a street story with Mumford in a cameo appearance. So it was close to a meeting between the two we got when Jerry was alive.

    Still here's hoping for a proper meeting between Mumford and Abby in the near future.

    I find it odd that United Healthcare is one of SST's PBS sponsors, considering what a company of crooks they are.

    This montage features a lot of new clips from the upcoming season:

    I see a lot of Ernie, so that’s a good sign.

    Please release that Don't Eat the Pictures behind the scenes footage or don't tease me at all. :smirk:

    Really pleased to see all the classic characters making appearances; it's sad there's a day to be thankful Ernie & Bert are on Sesame Street, but Guy and Two-Headed Monster is awesome - I guess they were inspired by Palisades wave one.

    Wave one of the unreleased Sesame Street was Ernie, Oscar The Grouch, Guy Smiley, and Two Headed Monster

    Does anyone know if the Season 49 guest stars are confirmed yet?

    Yup, I mean Oscar's been a constant since day one.

    The Count (moderator) owns the prototypes -- I tried to get him to post some pictures, but no dice.

    I also emailed Ken Lily about some painted Count and Bert prototypes I saw in the back of one of his pictures but the same result.

    I think I remember hearing that series two would’ve done numbers. And they would switch off and every other wave.

    Maybe they want to get Pete used to the role. Kee hee hee!

    Plus it will be great to see Kate Miccucci in person. Jinkies!

    Maybe it’s just me or does Peter feel more comfortable for the role of Ernie than Billy was?

    Oh, definitely. You can hear it.

    That's true, but it could also be that Peter is just generally more comfortable puppeteering/being on the show altogether.

    I wonder if Billy didn’t really fit in with the crew. He left on his own terms

    Tbh, I never really "felt" Billy's Ernie so to speak. I don't know, he always felt kind of awkward - you can certainly tell that Peter is the more comfortable puppeteer overall.

    Puppeteering is not as easy as it looks, and Billy was more of a voice actor than he was a puppeteer anyway - both great talents, but not always interchangable.

    Kind of like Paul Rugg: he was great as the voice of Freakazoid, but as a puppeteer, his lip syncing didn't always match the syllables that were being said. He'd close the mouth on the syllable, and open it inbetween.

    And obviously he will stay a constant right till the end!
