    I'm sure that had something to do with Little Miss Muffet Sitting On A Tuffet.

    Hello again! I just wanted to report that I FOUND said sketch ALL BY MYSELF with NO help from anyone ANYWHERE sadly despite asking EVERYWHERE from Sesame Workshop to the archivist at Henson Productions, who NEVER replied to me. I guess I WAS the only weird kid who watched the Emmys for fun, and my brain is better at remembering than I thought it was. If you ever watch older Emmy broadcasts, they are a LOT more entertaining than they are now!

    On my recent trip to New York City, I went to the Paley Center/The Museum of Television and Radio and looked up the Emmy broadcasts within the date I remembered, and I found it on my first try! It was EXACTLY how I remembered it, and it was a joy seeing again! I also saw the fantastic opening of that Emmy broadcast again! Sadly, the Paley Center will NOT release anything online since they don't own the rights to the broadcast, but I know copies are out there somewhere of it since a friend of mine lent me the game show host choir skit from the following year's broadcast, and it had the EXACT same 'blip' on the Paley Center's copy as his. Now I just have to find someone who has a copy of that broadcast, and I'll be happy.

    I'm off to bug contacts that might have some info on where I can get my hands on that broadcast. I'm off then! Thanks for letting me try here at least!

    Old street scenes wanted: Bert searches for a special bottle cap

    I've got vague memories of an episode from the 1970s, with street scenes about Bert trying to find a "Watermelon Whip" bottle cap. He described it as red, with a green circle around the edge and the letter W in the middle. Two human characters found caps that didn't match those details, much to Bert's frustration; but I forget whether the search succeeded by the end of the episode. Does this plot ring a bell with anyone else?

    Old letter O sketch--may have requested before, but I'm not sure!

    (Mainly because I can't search as far back in the new forums as I could in the old ones... :search:)

    The sketch I had in mind showed three characters on the Street, each with a circular object that they compared to the letter O--then altered somehow. I don't recall which characters exactly, but two were humans and the third was a Muppet (probably Oscar):

    • "O....O with a bite in it." (a donut; this must have been made BEFORE "C is for Cookie", which compares bitten donuts to a different letter!)
    • "O...O with a leak in it." (an inner tube which someone had trouble inflating)
    • "O...O with a dent in it." (some metallic object I can't recall; may have been a wheel rim)
    If anyone else has seen this and can confirm/correct my details...feel free!

    I'm looking for the cartoon "An elephant has four legs". I want to use it for a future Youtube Poop.
  7. I'm looking for a 'scary' sketch of a woman's nose changing various shapes. I need it for a YTP I'm making.

    Not a sketch, but I'm looking for something from Season 33 where kids dance to the song Get Outta Here.

    Looking for the short cartoon in which there were smart turtles (at least I think they were turtles) saying "Six times seven is forty two, and Harrisburg is the capital of Pennsylvania". I tell my daughter about this when she is having trouble with her 7 times tables and would love to find a clip. I think it may have even been on the first DVD set but I'm not sure. Can anyone ID the cartoon and let me know if I can find it online or on disc? No luck with multiple Google searches. Thanks!!

    Hi Robert K, welcome to Muppet Central. The reason you're not having any luck in finding what you're searching for is because those are from other sources that aren't Sesame/Muppet related segments.

    The one with the "6 times 7 is 42" line could be from either the animated segment accompanying either the song "I've Got Six" or "Lucky Seven Sampson" from Multiplication Rock, which in turn is one of the subcategories of subjects covered in the series of animated shorts from Schoolhouse Rock!
    As for the song stating that Harrisburg is the capital of Pennsylvania, you might be thinking of the song sung by Whacko Warner listing all the capitals of all the states of the United States from the show Animaniacs.

    Hope this helps and have a good time exploring the rest of the forums.

    Thanks, Count but definitely not from Schoolhouse Rock. We have that DVD and have watched it many times. Also, I rarely watched Animaniacs, although I was a fan of "Tiny Toons".

    Does it help if I tell you that the two animals were wearing mortarboard (graduation) caps?

    Not really due to my real-life blind batty eyes. The only SST animated sketches I know that had turtles in them would be the insert for the song "Ten Turtles" or the series of sketches featuring Edgar Turtle and his trio of nephews. Sorry I'm not much more help than that.

    I cannot find ANY sketches with Elizabeth and Little Murray Sparkles from Sesame Street online!

    Hey everyone! Just stumbled across this forum, and was hoping someone here might be able to help me find some footage of my mom from 1975 (give or take a year or two).

    The footage would likely have been on 'Canadian' sesame street, as it was filmed in Banff, AB, Canada.

    She says the only thing she can remember clearly about it was that they were going up one of the mountains around here in a gondola, and that she was wearing a purple winter jacket (which leads me to believe that the setting for the skit would likely have been very wintery / snowy mountains).

    Anyone have any idea where I should look for such a thing? Any advice at all would be much appreciated. :)

    Probably a good reason. They were far from memorable or enjoyable. Essentially the same gag as the Humphrey and Ingrid fawning over Baby Natasha, with the humor removed.

    Though I do agree it sucks that there's so much missing footage from Sesame Street. SW has its work cut out for it with decades of footage to comb through, and I don't think any classic clip uploaders give a rat's fez of such a lame character.

    Okay, to be honest, that IS the truth isn't it? LOL. Thank you anyhow!

    I've had this one clip stuck in my head for awhile now, but I have not been able to find it anywhere, so I am beginning to wonder if it really exists or if I just imagined it. It was a film clip about people running with a song sung over it (I thing it said "Everybody's running", or something along those lines). But the clip ended with Oscar running (in his trash can with his legs out). I tried looking at the clips for "Everybody Run", but that doesn't seem to match up so I am at a loss. Does anybody remember this, or am I just crazy? Lol!

    First of all I saw someone requested the clip where Kermit talks about feet. I never saw it as a kid but it's here. I wasn't sure if someone had already linked them to that sketch and as far as I know there was only one instance where Kermit talks about feet.

    Anyway I apologize beforehand if I ask about a sketch someone already asked about/has found. As far as I can tell there's a lot of classic Sesame Street on youtube but not the sketches I want to see at the moment. Thanks to Muppet Wiki I memorized the plot of the sketches I want to watch. I don't remember much of anything about Sesame Street from when I was growing up so anything I might have seen back then is a blur. Someone on youtube even described a sketch that sounded absolutely hilarious and I hope someone can find the following:

    -Grover tries to sell Kermit a toothbrush (there is one on youtube but it's in a language I can't understand)

    -Kermit explains Some, More, and Most with Cookie Monster. According to Muppet wiki there was a demonstration with jellybeans and marbles and a second one with cookies. I don't know if they both were on the same episode but the pictures on MuppetWiki looked like the first season.

    -Kermit does a lecture on walls and gets trapped by them

    -Kermit and Cookie Monster sort shapes. I think it was a game Kermit made up.

    -Kermit and Cookie Monster demonstrate the word "through". I think Kermit ends up crashing into the wall at the end according to how someone described it on youtube. I forget which video I saw someone mention that skit on.

    -Kermit and Grover demonstrate "Up and Down" using a sky-high flight of stairs

    -Kermit and Grover demonstrate heavy and light.

    -Cookie Monster uses Ernie's phone. I never saw this one but if I remember correctly Ernie was waiting on a call from Bert.


    I've never seen these before so I hope I described them well enough. Hopefully someone else remembers these.
