    Actually, it was the one with the two men. The tall man wants the short man to carry the O as he reads the poem about the letter O (I just don't remember the lines of it, sorry) but then the short man threw the O away until the giant man (although we don't see his head) carried a heavy O and politely asks "Is this your O?" and the short man thought it was so the giant guy dropped the heavy O onto the tall man's toe!

    Well, the information about the SSU episodes have been up already on Muppet Wiki! There are 39 of the 67 Unpaved episodes that have complete information with screencaps from each segment/street scene of the show and a couple that are incomplete. There are some other episodes that have the old format of the pages back last year and some of them, unfortunately, don't have the list of everything that was on them:( Now that the wiki is starting to grow, I think that the page about show #2486 does NOT have the sponsors and does NOT have the list of every segment/street street! Boy I wish I find out what Noggin edits were featured on 2226, 2404 and 2486, so that means these will be the last episodes I have to make guides for in this thread before the wiki keeps growing:

    No, that's incorrect. It's orangutans playing, not gorillas.

    What exactly is Sesame Street Unpaved?

    I have a book with that title, but it is a behind-the-scenes type of book, and that doesn't sound like what you guys are talking about.

    Why did they add the "Unpaved" to the show's name for this series?

    Thanks for the link!

    It's older episodes from seveal of the seasons from back in the day. That's what it was all about. They did this when Noggin had just started out and then it's no longer showned. At all.
