(Posted on the youtube clip thread) The longest lost of long lost Sesame Street skits, the supposedly unaired Maurice Sendak cartoon that was considered too creepy for kids. Oddly enough, decades later, it was deemed safe enough for a cartoon of its very own Note the fact in the theme intro, 5 drinks all the water out of the pool, much like he does in the original sketch, and the fact that 7's removable head doesn't seem to bother anyone no, as it's more to a comical extent. Also, for program's sake, 2 of the monsters turned into girls, and the bull looking one becomes a fuzzy green reptile that looks suspiciously like the DIC animated King Koopa. As for the sketch it self, I DO see where the freakiness comes from. Not so much the antics of the monsters in the begining of the cartoon... but this segment at the end where they somehow turn their house into a hideous face and run around... Yeah... that could very well have disturbed kids. Had it ended differently, I'd've said... are you crazy? But I could see running away from the TV and hiding under the furnature at an early age from that.
