    Unearthing previously "lost" Sesame Street episodes

    I have a bit of things to say now.... It's great to finally see an image for The Mudman in Muppet form. He actually looks less like Biff to me than he does in illustrated form. And it's great to have a performer known for him (I figured it was probably Jerry Nelson). And great to have an...

    Sesame Street Season 50 News and Rumors

    That makes sense, then (the only reason I saw this is because Muppet Wiki shared it from Joe's Facebook page). It would be cool to see such favorite moments of the human cast. It'd also be cool if they'd get Frank Oz to do one of these. When I saw it, I managed to see comments from Joe's page...

    Unearthing previously "lost" Sesame Street episodes

    One segment listed from the scripts that had me curious now has an image and page: Without People, sung by Big Bird. https://muppet.fandom.com/wiki/Without_People Just seeing how it was listed ("NY Remote #(I forget what number, want to say 43 or 64 or whatever) Without People - Big Bird")...

    Sesame Street Season 50 News and Rumors

    Joe Hennes of Toughpigs recently got to do a favorite moments segment (though it looks to me like it can only be viewed on Facebook at the moment):

    Dreams about Muppets...

    Last night I dreamt that I went to a local restaurant and Steve Whitmire happened to be working there as a security guard. I had met him at a con last year and he actually remembered me and my name immediately (I wasn't the one who approached him). He said that he needed a "day job" in addition...

    50th Anniversary DVD announced

    Here's another wishlist of mine for this. Stuff in bold has already been confirmed via either the press releases or trailers (and may not exactly be something I would have put on the wishlist otherwise). This list will include a few non-insert street scenes. Seasons 1-10: Sesame Street begins...

    Unearthing previously "lost" Sesame Street episodes

    Kevin Clash mentioned that Professor D. Rabbit's shtick was so unfunny that he doesn't remember it (and I think I've also read that he was more of a writers character than a performers character). I don't really know what his main character trait is. I've looked at the characters page on the...

    "Sesame Street's 50th Anniversary Special" to air November 2019 on HBO and PBS

    Looking at the Amazon page for the DVD, I see that the run time is 75 minutes. I wonder if that includes bonus features (I think most Sesame DVDs include the time from bonus features with its run time) or if the special will actually be that long. Somehow, with all the confirmed celebrities and...

    50th Anniversary DVD announced

    Looks like too many repeats from the Old School sets and 40 Years of Sunny Days, Joe Hennes said that there won't be a lot of repeats from those sets. It probably won't have the original ABC_DEF-GHI. A trailer for this set shows that the late-1980s version will be included. A trailer for...

    Unearthing previously "lost" Sesame Street episodes

    I like how for Big Bird's little brother, they just photographed him a little lower at the neckline. In fact I've noticed while he appears to be in a shirt he's got some feathers showing where the sleeve should be. They clearly just put a shirt collar over his neck, a separate sleeve over his...

    Unearthing previously "lost" Sesame Street episodes

    That's an interesting dragon. I'm surprised they didn't, as far as I currently know, use him again or recycle the puppet. Looks like a full-body character, though none of the pictures show him having a lower half. Then again, I've always thought of Magellon from Eureeka's Castle as being...

    You Ever Notice...and What's the Deal...

    In one episode of That '70s Show, Jackie gets Kelso a leather jacket, but everyone - or at least Hyde, Fez, and Laurie - teases him about being Fonzie. But what's up with that? Fonzie was popular in the late-1970s, why tease somebody for dressing up like him? And why should Kelso be embarrassed...

    Unearthing previously "lost" Sesame Street episodes

    I'm more willing to bet that either Tom Hanks was scheduled to make an appearance but canceled, or they taped material with Hanks that ended up not airing (failing with test audiences) and it wasn't in any of the final aired version scripts (though I do know that one of the scripts included a...
