    I need some help with finding a "Sesame Street" episode for a friend...

    Hello. My name is John. I haven't posted on here in several years...I guess I'm not as a hardcore of a Muppet fan as most of the people on here are. Anyway, I came back here for a reason. I'm a writer for a website called RetroJunk, and I need some assistance for one of my fellow writers. She...

    Which movies and TV shows were on "Muppet Babies"?

    With the talk of appearances by live-action Muppets and the mention of Stan Lee, I'll toss in something else I remember. In the episode "A Punchline To The Tummy", there are live-action cameos by Whoopi Goldberg and the late John Ritter (as themselves being talked to by Baby Gonzo as a talent...

    Which movies and TV shows were on "Muppet Babies"?

    I recall the episode "Elm Street Babies" used footage from the sequel to "Teen Wolf". I think one episode had some clips from "Pee-Wee's Playhouse". Finally, for now, one episode had concert footage of Steve Martin talking about the arrow in his head. Sincerely, John "manoftheSTREET"...

    Which movies and TV shows were on "Muppet Babies"?

    When I say that, I mean featured in clips. They used so many...I just want to try and make a list, and I was wondering if you, my fellow "Muppet Babies" fans could help me. This much I do know... They used clips from: The original "Star Wars" trilogy "Raiders Of The Lost Ark" "E.T"...

    Muppet Babies DVD Box Sets

    Look, ernie, I'm only being honest. One of my favorite shows is "Miami Vice", and they used extensive music cues throughout their 5-year run. When it comes to DVD, I expect that a good amount of the music will be edited out. It all comes down to money, and I know that's hard to hear, but...

    Muppet Babies DVD Box Sets

    Haven't been to these boards in a while so the "Muppet Babies" section is new to me, but I don't think we'll be seeing "Muppet Babies" in season sets on DVD anytime soon. Basically, it comes down to rights issues...They used so many movie and TV clips (as well as the occasional bits of music...

    When you outgrew Sesame Street...

    Speaking for myself, nobody has ever been bothered by my watching of the program. I'm 21 and I enjoy it more than when I was a kid, since I can pick up on pop-culture references, celebrity cameos and musical cues I wouldn't have otherwise. Sincerely, John "manoftheSTREET" Kilduff...

    Sesame Street under attack for airing McDonald's commercials

    Ralph Nader is protesting Mickey D's ads on the Street? I guess this means we'll never hear his reindition of "People In Your Neighborhood" again. ;) Sincerely, John "manoftheSTREET" Kilduff... Points if you caught my reference.

    Newsflash Fan-Fiction: Clockstoppers

    Interesting, but I think fairy tales and nursery rhymes are more the Street's speed. Sincerely, John "manoftheSTREET" Kilduff... Meant with no malice...You're a talented kid.

    A unique idea for a Sesame Street parody band!

    Actually, there was an animated segment I believe was called "Beginning, Middle And An End" that was done in the style of Talking Heads' "And She Was". The singer even sounded like David Byrne (one never knows, with all the celebs the show has attracted, Byrne might've provided vocals...Slim...

    How much do you think the average SESAME STREET actor gets paid?

    The "Sesame Street" actors take outside acting jobs to supplement the income... An example is Roscoe Orman (Gordon). He's made appearances in movies like "F/X" and "Striking Distance" and on TV shows like "Sex And The City" during his many years on the Street. Another example is Sonia...

    I need to ask a favor for a friend regarding pictures from "Follow That Bird"...

    Greetings, frequent posters...I'm the resident poster-in-hiding manoftheSTREET, and I need to ask a favor for a friend...Specifically, I need to get him screenshots or publicity photos from "Sesame Street Presents: Follow That Bird". You see, I'm a writer for the website...

    Best and Worst Sesame Guest stars

    Mel Gibson as Hamlet, Martin Riggs and himself... Robert DeNiro demonstrating method acting... Jim Carrey putting his own spin on a Steve Martin routine... Mike Myers as Wayne Campbell, extolling the virtues of reading and hoisting a tuba over his head like Jimi Hendrix...

    Favorite Monsterpiece Theater segments

    The Mel Gibson segments... "Hamlet" (performed with Elmo) "Lethal Weapon 3" (Mel Gibson and Danny Glover in character as Riggs and Murtaugh observing a danger sign. Why? Because of a gigantic stone number 3 about to descend on them) Sincerely, John "manoftheSTREET" Kilduff

    DVD Series of every Sesame Street episode ever made

    It could NEVER be done... In best-ofs, maybe it could be accomplished. Over 4000 episodes on DVD? No way... Legalities, music rights clearances (they've used music by everyone from Rodgers & Hammerstein to Deep Purple on the show), negotiations with the living who appeared on the show, as...
