    Could you tell me more about that? I didn't think anybody met Snuffy until years later. Did he think that he was just dreaming or something.
  3. MIKEB97

    MIKEB97 New Member

    Sure thing, Daffyfan. David was walking to Big Bird's nest and before he open Bird's door, he heard Big Bird talking to Snuffy and when he heard Snuffy's voice, he thought he was dreaming. He then told the adults that Snuffy was real and they thought he was delusional. When the adults went into Big Bird's nest, Big Bird and Snuffy disappeared and David was left alone in humilation.

    I see. So what happened after that? Did they sort of forget about that after that episode and have David still not believe Big Bird about Snuffy? I'm still a little confused.

    Well, I think the second season premiere is sponsored just only J and 2. I can't beleive that it's sponsored by more than five letters! Isn't it this true?

    Are you sure these are correct? Or, as I should say, are these the "unedited" versions that were never on Noggin?

    I never saw "That's About The Size Of It" or "Evolution of Frogs" in show #1839. "That's About The Size Of It" was shown on episode #2208. ANd I never saw "Angry Man In Studio" on episode #2269. And "Above It All" was in show #2615? I don't think so. Where are you getting those?
  11. MuppetDude

    MuppetDude Active Member

    ;) Thanks, mikealan. There were lots of great sketches on these episodes that I remember. I'll add them to the guide.

    BTW, in #2269, you mention that the "Family" song (?) appears.

    Is this the one where bare Anything Muppets go behind a blue wall and become different members of the family (and animals)? I have one version of it (part English, part Hebrew) on the Shalom Sesame video "Tel Aviv".
  12. ssetta

    ssetta Active Member

    It's not a song, it's just a skit.

    It has a father, a mother, a son, and a daughter. And it's about ways to think about a family. 2 big people, and 2 little people. 2 boys, and 2 girls. 2 people with hats, and 2 people without hats. But the best way to think of them is just 1 happy family.
  13. MuppetDude

    MuppetDude Active Member

    Thanks for the clarification, ssetta. Isn't that Caroll Spinney who plays the mother?

    Does anybody know if the song I mentioned (with the bare AMs) appears on Noggin? I'd love to see the English version.
  14. ssetta

    ssetta Active Member

    If that isn't it, I don't think it ever was on Noggin.

    You can hear the English version on the CD-ROM Sesame Street Numbers. It's part of the "radio show" users hear when they choose to listen to the radio.

    Hey Splurge, what's this about a "Sesame Street Numbers" CD rom? If you can, please describe what it's about, what the game play involves, and what specialty features/sketches/songs it contains. Thanks for the help and have a good day.

    I have it!

    I got it at GoodWill. Thats where I work. Its pretty cool!!! I could tell you, but it might take awhile. Could you wait count?
  18. Erine81981

    Erine81981 Active Member

    Mikealan Yes I was wondering If you had these Episodes on tape or just knew about them? If so could we trade episodes?

    Next Scott Monster do you have the episode of what you wrote? And if you do could we trade?
  19. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Sure thing, don't worry about it Erine. Just post back here when you've got all the pertinent information related to the game and can describe it for me.

    BTW: Not sure what you meant by a Muppety role-playing game. If you could describe this one as well but keep it separate from the SS Numbers CD, I'd appreciate it so that then I could make a decision one way or another as to participate and help you out with it.
    Thanks for the help and have a good day.

    Ernie, I remember all of the sketches I saw on the Death of Mr. Hooper last weekend.

    BTW, I remember all of the sketches that were shown on Oscar Moves to Candy Cane Lane and Gabriella's Birth, too, in my youth.
