    Looking for info about a street scene, I think. Could just be an insert but all I remember is Elmo marching outside Oscar's can with a stop sign, and I think he was yelling (?)

    I think it's from a 90's episode, I don't think it was from the ATC era though.

    Hardly. I'd just speed through skits I've already seen and only watch what I wanted.

    NO IT IS NOT. I do NOT have an unnatural, unhealthy, ungodly obsession with this skit. It is a cartoon I simply wanted to know the animator of, and now I know: it's Ken Brown and Lisa Crafts. Please do not compare me to declano. STOP.

    Looking for the song from Season 1 that goes ''Boys and girls- have you met- the 26 letters called the alphabet- A B C...'' and so on. It appeared on the Joan Ganz Cooney tribute.

    Does anyone have ''Ernie and the Candy Salesman''? My friend is looking for it.

    This might sound a little far fetched but there was an Anything Muppet skit from possibly the mid/late 70's or early 80's that took place in the same classroom that went from being used for the "Roosevelt Franklin Elementary School" sketches and then used again for "That's What Reading's All About" (or "Sound it Out"...whichever it's called) and "My Rock". In it, a group of AM kids enter the classroom, and are amazed by their surroundings (from the blackboard, supplies, desks, the alphabet above, etc.) They then try to figure out what it is, obviously leading to different opinions (but not a big argument). Ultimately they decide to get to work, and resume their guessing later. So, they open up the top of their desks and once again start marveling over everything they see inside. But then they notice each desk has 2 letters on the tops ("SC" on the first, "HO" on the second, and "OL" on the third), and of course realize that they're in a SCHOOL...end of skit!

    I used to have it as part of #3277, but my youngest sister accidentally taped over it back in late September 2007, so of course my evidence of this skit is gone...and unfortunately that was before I started getting into the tape trading game. But I can assure that I'm NOT making this up. Hopefully one day, SW will pull it out of the vault. Though, if anyone reading knows what I'm talking about, please let me know!

    Bumping this up because this is a skit I've been trying to look for a very long time.

    There was a film that had Bob Marley's "Three Little Birds" playing in the background. I'm pretty sure the film was about a boy telling about his life in Jamaica and the school he goes to, but I'm not entirely sure.

    Does anybody recall this skit, or is it online anywhere by any chance?

    I vaguely remember a 90s/early 00s skit about a girl who travels around the world to try different unusual types of food. At the end, she goes to America, tries peanut butter and jelly, and loves it. I asked my mom if she remembers that skit and she told me that she definitely knew the one I'm talking about. I believe it was a cartoon, not live action or Muppets.

    My dad recently told me about a skit from Sesame Street that I used to love. It was about Elmo singing some song in a barn with cows during a storm. That's all he remembers from the sketch itself but he told me that every time the skit came on, I would get super happy and would often ask my parents to replay it over and over again.

    That was in the Elmo's World skit about food.

    I am thinking of the late 80's Sesame Street insert where Elmo imagines Luis inventing machine that a vacuum, a toaster, and a music box all in one.

    I had to give up posting classic Sesame Street clips on Youtube due to copyright issues with Sesame Workshop. This is why I now post Sesame Street on Twitch.

    I had previously mentioned this supposed cartoon in the "What sketches scared you?" thread with little to no luck. But anyway, I recently heard a mention of a possible Sesame Street animation on the website Kindertrauma. The user who posted the info claimed that the sketch may have been some sort of weird dream but isn't quite sure for that. The scene he mentioned (with the details they could remember) was described that the main character was a Claymation horse who's head moves like a dog and he reacts to things like a dog would. He claimed that the uncanny valley nature of the horse's movements scared him and was the cause of several nightmares. While it's highly possible that this skit doesn't actually exist given the circumstances, I would still like to know if anyone here knows what I'm talking about. Because it sounds like something that's just weird enough to make great YouTube Poop material that practically writes itself lol. Although I'm someone who isn't scared of Claymation in the least the "sketch" he described sounds creepy even to me:
    But curiosity has killed the cat and I still want to know what the heck that person could possibly be talking about. Besides, I'm an 19-year-old man. For me, having nightmares about Claymation ponies is something of the past. Right? :p
