I'm sure that had something to do with Little Miss Muffet Sitting On A Tuffet.
Hello again! I just wanted to report that I FOUND said sketch ALL BY MYSELF with NO help from anyone ANYWHERE sadly despite asking EVERYWHERE from Sesame Workshop to the archivist at Henson Productions, who NEVER replied to me. I guess I WAS the only weird kid who watched the Emmys for fun, and my brain is better at remembering than I thought it was. If you ever watch older Emmy broadcasts, they are a LOT more entertaining than they are now!
On my recent trip to New York City, I went to the Paley Center/The Museum of Television and Radio and looked up the Emmy broadcasts within the date I remembered, and I found it on my first try! It was EXACTLY how I remembered it, and it was a joy seeing again! I also saw the fantastic opening of that Emmy broadcast again! Sadly, the Paley Center will NOT release anything online since they don't own the rights to the broadcast, but I know copies are out there somewhere of it since a friend of mine lent me the game show host choir skit from the following year's broadcast, and it had the EXACT same 'blip' on the Paley Center's copy as his. Now I just have to find someone who has a copy of that broadcast, and I'll be happy.
I'm off to bug contacts that might have some info on where I can get my hands on that broadcast. I'm off then! Thanks for letting me try here at least!
Old street scenes wanted: Bert searches for a special bottle cap
I've got vague memories of an episode from the 1970s, with street scenes about Bert trying to find a "Watermelon Whip" bottle cap. He described it as red, with a green circle around the edge and the letter W in the middle. Two human characters found caps that didn't match those details, much to Bert's frustration; but I forget whether the search succeeded by the end of the episode. Does this plot ring a bell with anyone else?
Old letter O sketch--may have requested before, but I'm not sure!
(Mainly because I can't search as far back in the new forums as I could in the old ones... )
The sketch I had in mind showed three characters on the Street, each with a circular object that they compared to the letter O--then altered somehow. I don't recall which characters exactly, but two were humans and the third was a Muppet (probably Oscar):
"O....O with a bite in it." (a donut; this must have been made BEFORE "C is for Cookie", which compares bitten donuts to a different letter!)
"O...O with a leak in it." (an inner tube which someone had trouble inflating)
"O...O with a dent in it." (some metallic object I can't recall; may have been a wheel rim)
If anyone else has seen this and can confirm/correct my details...feel free!
Anyone have a video of Twin Cat Tango? I can't find it on youtube.
