    Unfortunately, I don't think you can. I guess that's ONE disadvantage. But hey, you can watch them whenever you want on the site.

    Yeah I do understand why they don't want people to download them. But if that's the case, hehe, I hope they keep them up! :)

    I just discovered this site. AMAZING! I really love how you can search for other videos and it really doesn't interfere with the video playing or make it lag in any way. My computer isn't the greatest but I had no problems watching these videos right away. GREAT website, great job!

    The only thing I've noticed is that there are alot of really old clips, and really new ones, but alot of ones that I remember that are sort of in-between (from approx. 20 years ago) I don't see up there yet. Maybe I will request them in the feedback form.

    I've noticed that if you click on a picture of a character, as seen at the top of the page, the first sketch listed automatically plays, but if you just type in a keyword, the first listed sketch doens't automatically play. This is bad if you are watching and searching at the same time. I've forgotten about this a few times when I've clicked on the character pictures, and what I was watching suddenly swithced to the first sketch listed.

    It seems like there's only one clip that appears if I type in "Simon Soundman", but if I just click "Simon", there are a few more clips.

    Tough Pigs currently has an article about this website. It points out that the site currently doens't have anything with Roosevelt Franklin, Don Music, or Sam the Robot, thinking that maybe Sesame Workshop doesn't want to show clips with discontinued characters (but then while there is no Don Music banging his head, there's Alistar Cookie eating his pipe?), but the site does have clips with plenty of discontinued characters, like Sherlock Hemlock, Placedo Flamingo, Forgetful Jones, Herbert Birdsfoot, and The Salesman.

    The key word is currently. I'm sure if they yeild enough requests, they will in time have plenty of videos featuring those specific characters.

    Plus, with the pipe, Cookie is not actually smoking it, so it could easily translate as a prop. Which is the only reason why they got away with it. If Bubbles came out of that thing, there'd be no problem.

    Oh. And thanks for the tip off on Sherlock. I found 2 Cavemen days segments featuring him already.
  7. I saw a few videos the other day. It was great!

    But I'm curious about some thing - some times when I watch the videos, the quality seems really low and at other times it is high (perfect quality). Right now it is low. Is it my computer's fault? Because the other day, it was high quality.

    It's so cool to have Grover doing an intro about it. BTW What do they mean by the Beta Version?

    As i was looking again. I found a clip i thought i would never find. It's Oscar singing "I Hate Christmas" from "Christmas Eve On Sesame Street." Pretty cool to see that on there.

    Also got to see the Grover clip that Kuriboh was talking about. At first when i read this i thought he ment the pic you see of Grover before you click on a video. But that is cool to see Grover intro on there. Neato!

    How do you mean? It seems okay to me. Then again, it is my first time.

    Well, after hearing all the hipe, I finally had the time, and remembered to check out this site. It's fantastic! I like Youtube just fine, but this seems even easier to use! The best thing to happen to SS fans since Old School started coming out!
