    Wow! I thought it was just Grover. I'm taping it, so I'll watch it later. I'll take a look at that article though.

    Deffenitely too short, but it was good. Nice to hear from some 29 year old fans! :p :( :grouchy: <---all good things...

    Oh, and an occasional>:)

    Curious, though. Was that Eric or Frank doing Cookie and Grover?

    Also, was it Caroll or Matt? I thought it was Matt, in which case, his Big Bird sounds SO much better than it does on Journey to Ernie.

    OK, I just watched the clip; now I'm switching to ARTHUR :) . OPRAH is soooooooooooooooo corny (and not in the good way)! I mean, the audience is forced to laugh hysterically at the dumbest things:D

    I thought it was David Rudman who did Cookie Monster when it wasn't Frank. I really think Frank is too busy directing to do other television appearances which is why he didn't perform Miss Piggy on "Hollywood Squares." I haven't watched my tape yet. I'll have to listen for Matt as Big Bird. I've glanced at JTE a few times and that Big Bird sounds more like the 1969 hilbilly Big Bird. I'd like to see how well that improved.

    Matt played Big Bird for this appearance. Eric played Grover and David performed Cookie Monster.

    Daffyfan. In the second series of JTE, Matt's Big Bird is much closer to Caroll's. And you'll find in Matt's Street appearances, he's even closer again, especially with the Bird's singing voice.

    I didn't think Matt played Big Bird in the street appearances, just JTE. The last one I saw was the one with Ernie and the tape recorder. (Afterwards they showed a sketch with Ernie and Grover singing a song about opposites. Was that Eric or Frank playing Grover there? If it was Eric, it was really good. It sounded like Frank) Anyway, Big Bird's voice was a little bit off there. I don't know if that was from the second series, maybe it was recycled from last season.

    Anyway, I heard the voices on Oprah and I really can't complain. (Well, other than the fact that the sound was messed up because the tape didn't come out right.) The only thing I want to mention was that Grover's voice seemed a little too soft. I thought Eric did a better Grover before. Anyway, I really enjoyed that segment.

    Oprah rerun?

    I taped the 1am Oprah airing but no SS. Just home re-decorating. Anyone know when they will re-air this episode?

    On the subject of Matt/Caroll doing Big Bird, did anyone else notice there was no mention of that in Caroll's new book?

    Frank did Grover in that sketch.
