    I do hope they add full episodes at some point, it would be a natural progression. :)

    And yeah it's not updating that quickly, which is crucial on the Internet.

    I hope they add more clips with the SS Monsters (from the 1st season to be more specific).

    Many clips have been added over the first few months that it's been online. Sesame Workshop plans on including more soon.

    I would like for more first seaosn clips to be included, though what is there is great. There are a lot of rare ones that I've heard of (thanks to the CTW Archives having papers listing nearly every first season sketch and those papers being scanned on Muppet Wiki) but haven't seen.

    It seems like many of the recurring film and animation segmnets have only a handful of segments included so far. There's only one baker, jazz numbers, Typewriter, and detective series segment, two Mad Painter and Pinball Number Count segments, and no Teeny Little Superguy, letter candles, speech balloon, or Alice Braitwaite Goodyshoes segments. I forget how many bellhop cartoons there are.

    There are a lot of rarities that I hope get put up soon, including Lefty's attempt to sell Ernie a letter U, One Song (Song of One), There's a Hole in the Bucket, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, The Count on Miami Mice (heck, I'd like for any Miami Mice segment to be included) and at Grover's resturaunt, and others. I'd also like for the site to include segmnets with Professor Hastings.

    I wonder if Sesame Workshop has to negotiate residuals for these clips, despite them being free. I haven't seen any segments with copyrighted outside characters (except Kermit), very few clips with celebrity guest stars, and none of the first season song covers.

    Mo Willems animation on vid site

    I know it's not the Muppetyest part of the Sesame video site, but I was pleased that Mo Willems used his blog to point out the clips he worked on:




    Mo's Pigeon and Trixie books are favorites at our house.

    Mo Willems is one of my favorite animators.

    That said, It looks like they've got the player really cooking now. Last time I checked, the clips were very streamlines, and pretty pixilated and digitized. These are much better somehow today.

    I just watched Hey Food, NTV, and Little Miss Count Along on that website, and, although I'm a little off topic, I thought I'd let you know that I did two SS music video parody fan-fics that would've worked great on SS. It's "Subtracting's Pretty" by David Blowie (instead of "Suffragette City"), as well as "We Love Ya, "B"" by The Stop-Stop's (get it? Instead of "We Got the Beat" by the Go-Go's?). I might post the lyrics to one of them if possible, so whaddaya think?

    What surprised me was that I couldn't find any Little Jerry and the Monotones clips there. But they DO have "Danger's No Stranger" by How Now Brown and the Moo Wave.

    I must admit, "Danger" would probably never be rerun again, but "Danger's No Stranger" being rerun could be a possibility. It's from the 1980s and that still seems kinda "recent" to SesameWorkshop. I believe they reran that one until the mid-1990s, but they could've shown it until the early 2000s for all I know

    Try emailing them.

    Maybe we'll see more stuff if enough people do that.

    Yeah good idea, I would be interested to see if that gets a response.

    I was surprised to find the Yakkity Yakkity Yak segment on this website! Much cleaner quality though it looks a little darker.

    BTW, I know a trick that makes the ending even more scary! Play the Viacom "V of Doom" logo theme music during the scene where the Yak charges.

    I love this site! I've seen segments I havn't seen in years, plus stuff I havn't seen in English and stuffy I've never seen before. SW is doing a great job with exposing it's classic material.

    I've been thinking something for awhile, and I don't know whether it would be better to start a seperate thread for it or not. But how would you all feel if Sesame Workshop had people vote for their favorite video clips, and the top 25 most voted clips were included on a special DVD?

    I could see some people wodnerign what the point is, since the stuff can be viewed for free on the website. I guess it could benefit those without internet access (believe it or not there are still people without the internet, even non-amish), or those with internet access but can't watch the videos on their computers. And who knows if thiss tuff will be on the website forever? I feel it would also be good to have my favorites on a commercial release as well. And the clips would probably be included without the website logo.

    It would be interesting to see what kind of stuff would get the most votes. Would it be hardcore fans, parents who only watch the show with their kids, kids (who knows if kids would vote), or fans who don't know what is and isn't available on DVD?

    Of course, for all this to work, the DVD should have some choice bonus features not available on the website. Like the top 5 most-requested clips for the site. Or some rarity like another of the test pilots or Out to Lunch. Or unaired sketches.

    Didn't they do a similar thing on Noggin for the Sesame Street Unpaved special?
  17. minor muppetz

    minor muppetz Well-Known Member

    For that special, there were only four clips to vote on, and the winning clip was shown either during a commercial break or right after the special (I can't remember which). In a way what was doenw as sort of useless, since three of the clips were featured in the Sesame Street Unpaved special, and therefore fans would see them all in the special regardless (the clip not featured in the special was the season 7 version of Bein' Green, though the original season 1 version was included).

    Looks like the clips aren't working?

    Wonder why?

    This video site is a great start, but it needs improvement. For starters, there needs to be plots/street scenes from episodes. Next, we need loads more sketches. At least twenty new videos should be uploaded a day for the next fifteen years. Then maybe we'll finally have every single Sesame Street sketch for viewing. And can you believe that the site doesn't have Oscar's hit I Love Trash? Infact, Oscar doesn't even have a button! No fair! At least Kermit's sketches are still intact. :)
