    I know I may have said this earlier but, I will post it again.
    Who cares about where the episodes come from just be glad we are getting rare content.

    My friend out there, PumpkinJFriend, told me to post :rolleyes::

    ''I have doubts that though these Season 1, 10, 12, 20, and 22 episodes got leaked from Sesame Workshop's vault, and I'm frustrated that the other rare clips like "Windy" and "Ernie and the Candy Salesman" likely won't get leaked online ever since the German dubs of these clips got removed years ago. I'm also struggling with keeping a watch on more International Sesame Street episodes (foreign co-productions) surface online because I can't find anymore classic 1969-1971 Muppet clips (after his most recent upload was The Answer Lady "Telephone" sketch in German). I have hopes someone else can help leak the majority of Season 1-3 Muppet segments online, including "Windy" and "Ernie and the Candy Salesman."

    It's less likely that it will happen again as Sesame Workshop probably caught the person who leaked their episodes. But there's still hope...

    I know for a fact that Tiny Dancer uploads her videos from the trading circuit.

    I don't. I'm just making an assumption

    True, but the root of the episodes is probably the vault because of the countdown timers at the beginning (which is a dead giveaway that they come from the original master tapes), as PBS broadcasts don't have the timers, and their excellent quality. The countdown timers aren't seen in the YouTube uploads but they are still present in the trading circles.

    I still want to know what happened during episode 498.

    Assuming this is the same Tiny Dancer who ran The Sesame Street Lyrics Archive, she once said on Facebook that a Sesame Workshop intern made her a tape of clips taken from the archives as well.

    Thread bump. So, Guille (Sawing14s/MuppetVJ/Boober_Gorg) recently uploaded these photos to the Wiki:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] ("I'm Square")
    [​IMG] ("Wonderful Me")
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    He also posted photos and info for this song: http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/Surprise_(Geiss/Pottle)

    I wonder if he got access to more rare episodes, or just these stand alone clips...either way, I hope they're all uploaded to YouTube sometime soon (especially the "Surprise" song)!

    I heard about the "Surprise!" song with Big Bird (some people I noticed even got it mixed up with the Little Jerry song). I would love to see it myself one day.

    I've seen the sketch with Luis, Kermit and Cookie before! I think on a SS Podcast or something...

    Which one? The only time I can recall it being shown during the 21st century was on a 2003 Sesamstrasse home video (dubbed in German, of course).

    I don't remember, maybe on a classic episode on youtube... But what I know is I DO remember seeing that sketch very well.

    I find the cutaways for "Surprise!" hilarious, and the voice overs from Frank Oz sure add to the humor. I liked the Stuie Monster cameo especially.

    HALLELUJAH! What a day to be a Sesame Street fan! It's been almost five years since I first heard about "Surprise," and now I've finally seen it. I'm also happy about seeing the TV versions of "I'm Square" and "Wonderful Me," as well as the sketch with Luis, Kermit, and Cookie Monster. I think the last one was a remake of a first-season skit with Ernie and Gordon, if I'm not mistaken.

    That might have been what I saw.

    The Surprise song exceeded my expectations. It's sketches like that that make you realize why the cast members stayed on the show as long as they did. They all look like they're having so much fun! Also, it's always really great to get to see Frank Oz's characters interact with the human cast.
