    does anybody have this film?

    This has been driving my nuts for the past couple of days now and I was just wondering if anyone out there has this film? It was one of my favorites as a kid.
    It is the one with the guy doing the 18 handsprings out in a yard. It has him standing out side a house or some building and he is wearing red swimming trunks with white polka dots on it, and then he starts to take some running steps forward he executes a cartwheel and then does back handsprings across the lawn while kids count the handsprings. Then at the end he crashes onto the ground on his hands and knees.

    If anybody has this film, or knows where I can download it please email me, my email address is drwho762001us@yahoo.com I would apprciate any info, or replies very much. Thank you..:)

    I remember "I've Got Two Eyes" from that old LP I had!

    And yeah, the dollhouse one. :)

    Wasn't there a Muppet & kid segment with this little girl (she sounded like a Brooklynite, maybe?) who said "everything is two with me"? And she named a few things... only at least one thing was not a two thing, and it was either something that there was only one of, or something that there was ten of. Or maybe there was one of one kind and one of the other.

    I saw the one about how hard it is to be fifteen because you keep being forgotten. Really? Is the number 15 that hard? I can imagine forgetting 19, 17, or even 11 before I forgot 15... even before that song was added to SS. Did they take a poll?

    Here are mine:

    0 - Cookie Monster's song about subtracting cookies (which is also about the number 0)

    1 - Harvey Kneeslapper's "Would Ya Like 1?"
    2 - Bellhop 2 Lost Kids In the Lobby
    3 - the "1, 2, 3 (Hee hee hee!)" song
    4 - 4 Big Lions
    5 - Stencil # 5 on asphalt
    6 - "6 Soccer Socks"
    7 - "Alligator King"

    10 - Count to 10 With Nobody
    11 - The 11 Squares cheer song
    12 - The rocks (or Cocoa Puffs, as I used to think they were) in the desert
    13 - 13 Hamburgers (computer-animated)
    14 - "14 Ducklings In the Pot"
    15 - No particular fave here, though I'd love to know what the "Forgotten # 15" skit was like
    16 - "16 Blues" (although after seeing the Bellhop # 16 skit today on YouTube, that ranks as a close second; who ELSE would think of having a 13th floor on a kid's show? ;))
    17 - 17 Derby Hats (computer-animated)
    18 - Bellhop Telephone Message to Table 18
    19 - 19 Popcorn Kernels (computer-animated)
    20 (pre-sponsor days) - tossup between Indian Guru and the "Numbers In the Military" cartoon
    20 (when sponsored) - Bellhop 20 Grapefruits
    39 - Monsterpiece Theater "39 Stairs"
    40 - 40 Dots

    Well, that's about it fer now! (BTW, sorry I couldn't come up with better skits for 13, 17, and 19 but they were the only ones that came to mind.)

    Of all the number segments, my favorite is the 1-2-3-4-5 piece animated by Jim Henson. That song is so catchy, it's hard to get it out of my head every now and then.

    My bad, my REAL favorite "5" segment is Freddy the 5, not the stencil on asphalt one.

    Is that the one where a bald man has hats going on his head and each hat covers one bit of his face till every bit of his face is covered?

    I kind of like the Ernie & Bert routine where Bert reveals that his favorite number is 6, even though as far as Ernie can see there's really not six of anything, and then Ernie comes up with a rather high and equally outlandish number as his favorite.
