    My favorite Unpaved episode in the Season Premiere of 1971, where Maria, Snuffy, and Luis were all introduced.

    My second fave would be the 1970 Season Premiere, where Grover first appeared as fuzzy blue.

    I HATE the letter D animation/film! Because it only shows the species of dogs like dalmations and dixons. It always disturbs me sooo much, and I didn't get to see the whole clip of Two girls/dollhouse film in my teen life!

    ssetta, would you like to contribute anything to the guide? I'm interested in some of the episodes you have (I never knew SS really did film "P--My Favorite Letter").

    Well, it was in 2 Unpaved episodes. #796 and #1090. My copy of #796 isn't very good, but #1090 is.

    What's the problem with them? And, if you have the time, could you add either one to the guide?

    I have just about every Sesame Street Unpaved show, except for a few boring ones from the 1980's.

    Do you have a wish-list for a particular Unpaved episode? Here's a quick catalog of what I have....I'll trade you one episode for the 1993 episode where they go around the corner for the first time....

    1) all Season Premieres, from 1969 - 1978
    2) Death of Mr. Hooper
    3) Birth of Gabi
    4) The Outing of Snuffy
    5) Sesame goes to Hawaii and Puerto Rico

    and the list goes on and on and on....

    Let me know. I also have THE BEST OF THE ELECTRIC COMPANY, Noggin's long-lost 2 hour tribute to TEC.

    Description: In the beginning of the show, the whole cast recites the whole alphabet by saying their name that begins with their letter, except that Big Bird doesn't know who begins with the letter 'Z'. On the street, Snuffy plays 'London Bridge Is Falling Down' with the kids. Later, the first appearance of Sam the Robot is annoying Gordon and Susan. Sam thinks the street is Mulberry Street, but Gordon and Susan think it's really Sesame Street. Sam thinks he's perfect, but Gordon and Susan think he's not!

    Mikealan, a few questions for you if you could answer them please.

    From the episode where María's pregnant.
    1 During the surreal animation segment with 2 of everything, does the segment end with a sort of ghostly 2 floating out from a haunted house? If so, what happens at the end besides the 2 floating out from the house?
    2 What's the name of the football player performed by Gordon?
    3 You say that there's a song by the Count about his home. If you could, please elaborate upon the lyrics of this song like what they were, or what he was singing about throughout the song.
    Thanks for your help and have a good day.

    The kids in this scene are the stars of "The Cosby Show" (Keshia Knight-Pulliam, Lisa Bonet, Tempestt Bledsoe, and Malcolm Jamal Warner). Judging from the kids' ages, I'd say the scene was taped in 1986.

    Thanks for two more episodes, mikealan. BTW, where else does "The Baker #2 appear on #406?

    And can anybody give me anymore detail on the sketches I've posted above? Should I count the street scenes on #2558 with the sketch list or a part of the full episode? Is there anything between the "Ernie's Banana-Ear" sketches?

    Do I sound a bit needy today? :cry:

    Oh well, anyway, for The Count , the name of the football player Gordon plays is "Big Murray".

    There was nothing in between the the "Banana In Ear" sketches on Noggin. There probably was back when it aired on PBS, but Noggin used to actually put the break in between those 2 sketches.
  20. MuppetDude

    MuppetDude Active Member

    Thanks, ssetta.

    Now for my other questions:

    1. Where else does the "Baker #2" appear in episode # 406?

    2. Should the Street Scene from #406 (when the human members discuss the number "2") be included in the sketch list, or as a part of the framing parts? If anyone can tell me what happens in it it would be very helpful.

    3. Should the street scenes from #2558 ( "Telly Meets the Cosby Kids" and "The Name That Sound Game") be included in the sketch list for that corresponding episode?

    4. Does The Count's song from #2558 mention anything about a ghost, a spider, or a flight of creaky stairs? I might have it on tape.

    5. On a previous post someone mentioned a "Pockets" song in episode #666. Which scenes does it appear in-between?
