    What Muppet Skits do you get on your Sesame Street Episodes Philo and Gunge????
  5. I'll e-mail you a list tommorow. I need my sleep!

  6. I'm definitely interested in those really early episodes!

    I have 8 episodes from the 1980s (Big Bird Goes Home From Camp, Practising Music, Water Shortage, First Computer on Sesame Street, Mail and Breakdancing, Remembering Mr. Hooper, Maria Visits the Ob-Gyn, Maria & Luis See the Ultrascan).

    I also have lots of episodes of "The Electric Company", including one in which Grover turns up at the local greasy spoon, because he's lost, and J. Arthur Crank and the waitress help him find his way back to Sesame Street. I love those old "crossover" appearances!

    Did you notice in one of those old clips at the end of the 35th Anniversary Sesame Street special, Bob and Maria were dressed just like Fargo North, Decoder? Bob was even talking in Fargo's high, clipped English accent. All he was missing was Fargo's pencilled moustache!

    sesame street 1970's- early 80's

    Hi everyone! I'm a new member and I'm searching for old Sesame Street episodes from the 70's- early 80's (when I was a kid) to give to my niece. Can anyone help me? I'm afraid I don't have anything to trade but I would be willing to pay for the cost of materials/shipping/your time/etc..
    Thanks for your time!! :)

    So do you know yet Philo and Gunge?? (Post 44)
  10. I'm e-mailing you tonight, FOR SURE. If I don't I'll ask Boober_Gorg to give you a list.

    You can tell me on the forum please.
  12. I will for sure post it here tonight. I am not going to post #3105 and #3135 since I am missing some of the parts, I will list the Muppet bits for those once I get complete copies. So do you want highlights for all episodes or just the 93-94 episodes?
  13. P.S.

    I also have an interesting little snippet from the classic 1970s BBC comedy show, "The Goodies".

    In the "End of the World" episode, Graeme (the brainy one) is explaining to Tim (the innocent, cowardly, upper-class one) that the Muppets aren't real; they're just puppets.

    (Incidentally, I very strongly refute this argument.)

    To prove his point, Graeme digs through the laundry basket and uses various items to demonstrate various Muppets, through his remarkable talent for mimicry. His "Kermit", "Animal" and "Fozzie" are dead-on, and his "Waldorf" and "Miss Piggy" are very close. Only his "Robin" leaves something to be desired, but it's this plaintive "Halfway up the stai-air..." that sends Tim into a frenzy.

    It's not a true Muppet clip, but it's a very interesting little curiosity, and I can certainly include it in whatever I'm trading for old "Sesame Street" episodes!

    The Ob-Gyn and the Ultrascan? Those weren't Noggin shows, were they??

    Ok! :p
    As an artist, I understand copyright issues, believe me. But it is most frustrating that the only way to get any episodes is if you already have some to trade. If I HAD this stuff on tape, I wouldn't be ASKING for it.
    That said, here are some things of value for which I would be willing to part, in exchange for some classic 70's and 80's episodes (any will do; all I want is the original format before the Little Red Menace appeared on the Street).
    I have the Sesame Street Library vols. 1,2,5,6,8 &10
    I have the 1977 Sesame Street Live in Concert LP that I will burn to CD. (I WON'T part with the LP, sorry!)
    That is the only SS stuff I have. Haven't been collecting long.
    Other things of possible interest:
    All 81 episodes of Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist on VCD.
    Constant access to the muppets store at Disney-MGM Studios, Walt Disney World, FL. What do you want? If they sell it, I'll get it, except maybe the $300 Kermit lamp.
    My artistic services. Portraits, sculpture, illustration, great gift stuff. To see my work, go to //elfwood.lysator.liu.se/art/s/u/sunrise/sunrise.html
    PLEASE! I want to be able to show my children the classic Sesame Street I grew up with!
    If anyone can help, email me at sunrise_md2000@yahoo.com.

    I'm going insane here! I never knew I'd end up with so many replies! But don't worry--I'm planning to print out everyone's name who wants to trade with me. Then, I'll make a list of which episodes I want and what I'd like to trade. Then, I'll e-mail you individually. Is this okay?

    If you don't have anything to trade, you can e-mail me and we can work out a deal (you can either pay for the episodes or send me blanks, but be patient: it may take me a month alone for me to get things straightened out.

    I'l mail you based on how early you posted, or on how short your list is. That way, I can collect more episodes and trade with everyone.

    Can you please list all of the Sesame Street episode numbers you have?
    If these are all of the episodes of "Unpaved" (or non-Unpaved) episodes you have, I'd also like to trade for the "TEC" episodes you have. In this case, I'll trade one Sesame episode for every two "TEC" episodes. Sound all right?

    E-mail me a list of what you can get your hands on, but I'm interested in other Muppet stuff, too. Mainly old things, or toys that feature muppets besides the main characters (like Dr. Bunsen and Beaker, the Electric Mayhem, etc.)

    I've already got copies of "The Sesame Street Library" (except for volume 13), but I am interested in the "Sesame Street Live In Concert".
