    Did you ever hear the Mickey Mouse Disco version? Somehow I find that slightly more tolerable, but not by much... I always had issues with that song. Actually, I strongly remember the one used on Shalom Sesame. Used to fast forward through it all the time. of course, the best cover of the song WAS done by the Muppets... or rather Spike Milligan and the Muppets.

    But before we go totally off subject:


    Google Translate was a might fuzzy, BUT it says something to the extent of Rechov Sumsum Series 3 Opening 1986 Audio

    Dutch version of "Bert's Blanket":

    Apparently, part of the joke on Sesamstraat is that Bert is a terrible singer. That isn't a bad idea, but it makes his verse in this very hard to sit through. The sheep, however, sound great.

    Holy Heck! Garibaldo is CREEPY! Maybe it's that really deep low pitched voice of his. I wasn't expecting that at all.

    But hey, he sings Brazilian Portuguese "Everyone Makes Mistakes, so why Don't You?" I though only Plaza Sesamo currently was the only international Sesame Street that rerecorded American songs with their own characters.

    The Pakistani version, Sim Sim Hamara, has its own Youtube channel, with some preview clips:


    Looks very fascinating. Interesting that some of the characters, particularly the humanoid ones, look very different from the typical Muppet style. I like the green dragon/crocodile-type character the best.

    Yeah... they're almost a Jim Henson Hour level of ambiguous Muppet/Creature Shop. They wouldn't be the first extremely humanoid characters (Gaspar from Barrio Sesamo comes to mint), but it is a rarity. Most international co-productions just want specific animals and monsters.

    Personally uploaded by me (and the ONLY international clip I'm going to post)

    Sesamstrasse's version of Mmmmonster Meal

    Now, if anyone knows German and can tell me what the heck foods they're singing about PLEASE let me know and translate it for me...

    I think I heard muesli in there.
  12. Drtooth

    Drtooth Well-Known Member

    Yeah... Marzipan, Muesli... something that sounded like Match pudding... what exactly is Mushum mit Mice? other than some that sound the same, I'm at a loss.

    Well, this is a surprise - Rechov Sumsum's already made their own version of "What I Am"

    Some snippets from 1, Rue Sesame (France):

    That guy has a LOT of crazy crap. Especially French music videos for cartoon shows. They actually showed some at a convention I was at this weekend.

    I really like the "fan art" in the end credits of the show. Also, that Benco commercial easily looks like one of those insane Japanese commercials. :D

    Skip to 10:15, Barrio Sesamo's take on "D-U-C-K-I-E", which interestingly doesn't bother to spell the word, just lets Ernie names what he likes about Rubber Duckie.

    And if that's how he talks, how does he whisper?

    Something tells me that the cheap title sequences was created by the user, as the clips vary wildly in quality and there are watermarks in some of them, including one from DivX. The real title theme was probably the same as the other Open Sesame variations in other countries.

    I wonder why the user felt the need to change it?

    Translating his comments...

    Seeing it, there's a Hansson and Fia Jansson cartoon from Svenska Sesam, and a Thelma thumb cartoon.

    I HATE Ernie's voice. Why does he sound like Crazy Harry whispering?

    Ah, that explains everything!
