    I've been reading about people saying that they would like to see a SSU episode guide. I happen to have a few episodes that could be put into a guide, but I don't have the knowledge of how to make a website (I don't even have a computer!:( ) Rather, I am making an episode guide in a notebook I have (I know it sounds odd...:o ). I guess that I could post these for anyone who is making a website or wants to know what sketches appear in which episodes. I only have ten so far, so here goes:

    NOTE: The titles are, of course, unofficial.
    ADDITIONAL NOTE: Those who do not want me to spoil the episodes, do not read on.:)

    Sesame Street Goes To Hawaii

    The gang from Sesame Street have a great time at Hawaii. Nona teaches Bob and Maria how to count in Hawaiian, Buffy talks to kids about their herritages, and Olivia shares a song with her new Hawaiian friends. Meanwhile, Big Bird and Snuffy are still looking for the mysterious Snuffleupagus Mountain, but also have time to learn about the nose-flute, and even find a mountain shaped like a gorilla! Finally, the gang gathers around a campfire and sings a nice song about nice people.

    I know alot of these, Muppet Dude, especially "Cookie Disco"! That bit used to scare me as a kid.

    I wonder if you could you please give me a full description of what Aladdin (from the News Flash) looks like?


    BlueAM (who's thinking of doing a Blondie parody on Sesame Street lol)

    First of all, I didn't get a spanking...not yet, anyways.

    Second, to Pigs in Space, I'm not making a website (I don't have a computer). But I would like to hear your ideas, in case anyone else is considering a website.

    Third, to BlueAM, I was glad to see "Cookie Disco" on there, too. And I'd be glad to describe Aladdin:

    --Made from the lavendar live-hand AM
    --Wears a red hat (I don't know how to describe it. Looks sort of like a red donut with a fez on top to me)
    --Has lid-less eyes with black pupils
    --Has fuzzy black hair (not as fuzzy as Harvey Kneeslapper's hair, though) and small eyebrows
    --Has a small pink nose
    --Has a tongue
    --I think he wears a white shirt with thin vertical stripes, and a blue vest.

    Well, maybe the mods will be nice and just make you sit in the corner for a "time out" instead:D

    Actually, I was going to reply with a follow up message saying that I'd be happy to help you out, because I think a database like this would be a good thing to have. But I got the distinct impression from Phil's message that your post here constituted some sort of a no-no. (exactly what I don't know)

    anyway you can email me at scottyman74@yahoo.com

    Mikealan, I have a question for you:

    What do the three AMs who waited for the bus in the skit you mentioned look like?

    ScottMonster Well-Known Member

    Well in that case, as Kermit would say "the show must go on":)

    and with that, here's my contribution:

    Season 6: 1974 (don't know the ep number)

    1.The Count has climbed up to the top of the Sesame Street lamp-post so he can count all the lights on the street as they come on.

    2.Exit song (muppets only)

    3.Animation demonstrating the letter E as in enter and exit by having a character who goes in and out of two doors to the point of overdoing it

    4. Film: Kids at petting zoo

    5. Animation (3 children being chased by giant rabbit and outsmart him by hiding behind trees)

    6. Dialing For Prizes Movie

    7. Girl leads marching band and shouts out order to bang cymbals twice (??very brief)

    8. Animation bird about to eat caterpillar, but escapes by turning into a butterfly

    9. Prairie Dawn, Ernie, Bert, Herry and Cookie put on vaudville play about how a flower is planted and grown

    10.Rodeo Rosie meets the humans (and Big Bird) in Hooper's store

    16:Animation: King Minus

    18. Animation:Beetle Bailey "always last"

    19. Kermit, Grover and horse on farm demonstrating how a horse pulls a cart, but of course Grover never gets it quite right.

    20. Street scene: adults, kids, plus Ernie Bert and Herry all assembled around Oscars can at his request so he can show what people look like when they're not happy. (which to Oscar's chagrin, doesn't last very long of course)

    21. Animation: pencils in line dance demonstrating concepts of first and last

    22. Ernie and Bert: Ernie manages to acquires two noses by pulling off Bert's and attaching it to his own.

    23. Animation: Crow and fox with cheese

    24. Animation: demonstrates letter E as in "erase" where guy draws his likeness on chalkboard only to have it come to life, grab the eraser and rub out the artist who drew him!

    25. Film: little frog climbing a branch while song voice over "I'm gonna get there" is sung. The frog actually winks at the end when he reaches the top.

    26. Animation: best described as silhouette and "sand" animation demonstrating letter E with hill-billy style banjo music.

    27. Final scene: street scene with Count still up on lamp post sign. It's now dark and the Count watches as everyone turns out their lights, lock up and go home to bed. Luis is the last to turn his out and he locks up the fix it shop and starts to walk home when he suddenly notices the count on top of the sign post. Luis asks him what he's doing up there and the count tells him he's counting the lights going out and he's waiting for the one at the top of the Sesame Street sign, the tenth one, to go out. Luis tells him it won't go out untill morning so he might as well forget it and go home. The count replies "go home? And miss counting ten lights? Never, I will sleep here!" says goodnight to the light and falls asleep still clinging to the lamp post. Bert's voice over is heard saying Sesame Street brought to you today by the letter "E" and the number "2".

    More to come, stay tuned!

    I remember three AM's that wait for the bus.

    The first one is the Fat Blue one, the tall orange lady and a green boy that looks like Farley. I have this clip on tape from the 1987-88 season from PBS.

    Ohh..it had one of my favorite letter animations-the sand ones! I never watched the 1974 premiere, but did you think this episode is really sponsored by the letter E and the number 2?

    sesame street reruns 1970's- early 1980's

    Do you have any of the episodes from the 1970's or 1980's (don't know the ep #'s) with the "pockets" song? Whenever my mom watched sesame street with me and that song was on, she'd sing along with it. Let me know if you do. I remember the song starts out "what do we do without pockets..... pockets are perfectly fine".
