    I read the review, and was surprised to see that The Ballad of Casey McPhee is included. I never think of that as a country song. I think of that as a folk song, or a ballad. I'm not surprised that I'm a Real Cowboy is included.

    I was a bit surprised to see this review here. It's not very common for Sesame Street DVDs (well, besides Old School and some of the specials) to be reviewed at Muppet Central.

    Also, it would have been great if one of the Blowin' in the Wind parodies were included.

    I was looking at the review, and was Froggy Went A'Courtin' made for the DVD, or is it a segment from the show?

    I noticed that the review says that Ready for School is expected to include bonus segments as well. Is there a source for that, or is it just speculation?

    It would be great if this DVD was followed by similar DVDs, such as Kids Favorite Rock Songs, Kids Favorite Jazz Songs, and Kids Favorite Rap Songs (I guess I'd be pushing it for a Kids Favorite Disco Songs release).

    These would make good line-ups:
    Kids' Favorite Rock Songs
    Wet or Dry
    Full of Rythym
    Danger's No Stranger
    I Wish I Had a Friend to Play with Me
    U Really Got a Hold on Me
    Go, Baby, Go!
    I Wanna Hold Your Ear
    Hey Food

    Bonus skits:
    The Opposite Song
    Me Gonna Munch You, Munch You, Munch You
    We're Talking About the Number One
    Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds
    Barn in the USA

    Kids' Favorite Jazz Songs
    Heigh De Ho Man
    The Way U Does
    The Birdland Jump
    Jazz Alphabet
    That Furry Blue Mommy of Mine
    Sound it Out
    Don't Know Y
    The Birdcall Boogie
    Just the Way You Are

    Thanks for the review! I probably wouldn't have looked at the DVD twice unless I had known. That's great that "I'm a Real Cowboy" and "Casey McPhee" are on DVDs now. :)

    Considering I'm not a country music fan by any stretch (though this has a lot of great classic country tunes, and not so much of that pop country stuff) I'm surprised I have interrest in it. I am intreegued by the Casey Mc Phee song and Forgetful Jones and Polly Darton.

    The Rock songs one sounds like a good idea, but I doubt it would have those songs on it specifically.

    What's with "The Dixie Chickens"? How did they sing? Did they do a country-like version of "If You're Happy And You Know It"? Did they act like the Dixie Chicks? BTW The Dixie Chicks were on Sesame Street before.

    Do we REALLY need to introduce more of Elmo's relatives? A twin cousin? Hoo boy!

    I had trouble thinking of good Sesame Street songs for a rap edition. I could only think of Healthy Food, The Easy Rythym Rappin' Alphabet, and the number rap song cartoons.

    I would pay the full price of a DVD for "There's a Hole in the Bucket." I'm stunned this clip hasn't surfaced on Youtube.

    Does anybody even know of any episodes that feature that song? Was that song ever included on any Noggin broadcast? Has it been shown on Sprout? Is it shown regularly on international Sesame Street? In other words, is there anybody here who even has a copy of that? If not, then that might be why it hasn't been on You Tube. I don't even remember seeing or hearing about this segment until I saw the review at Muppet Central, and now it seems like everybody wants that sketch. Should we start a petition for that sketch to be included in Old School Vol. 3 (it's probably too late to petition for it to be included in Old School Vol. 3)?

    I have debated over buying this. On one hand, it includes The Ballad of Casey McPhee and I'm a Real Cowboy, and would be a good opportunity for me to hear a non-Big Bird voice that Matt Vogel can do, but on the other hand, I don't really like country music. However, I saw a cpy of this for the first time today, and while looking at the back cover, I noticed that the "bonus features" box doens't mention any bonus sketches, though the summary mentions bonus performances by a few additional celebrities. This does make it sound unclear as to whether it's just bonus skits with those celebrities or if there are more.

    Is Big Bird even in the video?:confused:

    We're trying to let Sesame Workshop know we REALLY want to see this. In the nearly ten years of this site's existence it's one of the most requested Sesame clips that has not been released officially in any form. No one seems to have it either as most think it's not aired in more than 20-25 years.

    Weird. I don't ever remember seeing this in peoples wish lists for Old School contents. Was it released on any albums? I guess that this and One Song (Song of One) are two of Sesame Street's rarest clips.

    No, "There's a Hole in the Bucket" was never released on an album.

    Ahem... The Ballad of Slippery Slim!
    Finally! Confirmation of that sketch that's been in my memory banks but noone seems to acknowledge. One of the few times when Sesame devoted a sketch to teaching a letter-blend combination, the SL family of words.

    Phil, if you have this song, could you please tell me about all that happens during the sketch that accompanies the song and/or the lyrics too?
    Or do you need someone to donate it for MC Radio's vaults?

    If anyone knows where to find it on youtube, please LMK. Thanks.

    There is only a song with "Slipperly Slim". There are some Anything Muppets acting out the story as it's told.
  19. The Count

    Yes... But now that I have the song, it's a bit clearer. Thanks again for that Phil.
    *Sits down to add to list of Muppets.

    By the way, all of the classic songs from this DVD are in our rotation on Muppet Central Radio.
