    Did Joe sing those on Sesame Street?

    And BlueFrackle, why are you looking only for the ones he sang?

    On the tribute CD, Joe sings "A Little Bit", but I don't know if he sang this on Sesame Street or not.

    Joe's contribution to television

    Joe also wrote the "Three's Company" theme...

    Anyone know of any others on TV besides this and, of course, Seseme Street?

    I think BlueFrackle's only looking for songs Joe sang. If he's looking for those he wrote, boy would I have a list!
