    Tales from The Muppet Movie

    Our next story is "Gonzo Becomes the Prince of Plungers". One day when Gonzo was in junior high school, his school had a career day. "Okay, class, we must all pick careers for our future", said the teacher. Gonzo thought about it, "Well, I've always wanted to go to Bombay, India to...

    Dreams about Muppets...

    I dreamt I was writing either a fan fiction or actual official script in which The Swedish Chef runs a cooking camp and Scooter appears as an assistant/translator. Bill, Gil, and Jill show up as health inspectors, and eventually they decide to let Jill be an assistant/translator as well, in...

    Tales from The Muppet Movie

    In honor of this week being the 40th anniversary of when The Muppet Movie was released in theaters, I'm presenting an anthology series of short stories called "Tales from The Muppet Movie", featuring backstories and things that happened during the events of the movie. I don't know how many...

    Little things we've noticed

    Lately, I have been watching the Mysterious Theater segment "Case of the Missing Cat" a lot more lately than I ever have (and it's usually my go-to Mysterious Theater segment I include in wishlists), and have noticed some odd logic. It seems like Sherlock Hemlock and Watson are summoned to...

    American Archive of Public Broadcasting to preserve nearly 4,500 Sesame Street episodes

    Now that Scarecroe has access to more rare footage, we now have answers for two of these questions. For number 8, Telly was in that segment, but it turns out Grover didn't appear in the final aired version and another monster appeared with them (I think Telly replaced Grover), and for question...

    HBO Family - Are Classic Episodes Coming or Are We Being Tricked?

    Did they actually list descriptions that match what Muppet Wiki has, or could they have just incorrectly listed those dates with what they are showing now?

    American Archive of Public Broadcasting to preserve nearly 4,500 Sesame Street episodes

    I did a search for Sesame Street, searched for what the archive has (not just what could be viewed online), I can't remember if I searched all pages of results or just the first one but didn't see any episodes, just somewhat-unrelated search results that mention Sesame Street in the description...

    Where are all these classic Sesame Street episodes coming from?

    It seems every time a rare clip makes its way to YouTube, some fans copy and upload their copies online. For the most part, I don't really know what the point is. Are they worried about the clip being taken down so they provide a back-up (which makes me happy if the original upload is no longer...

    Classic Sesame Clips on Youtube

    Listening to it again, it seems the only time it sounds like French dialect is when he says Suzanne's name. Is her name generally French-sounding? I hope some of Brian Meehl's other season 11 performances as Telly surface soon. It'd be interesting to know if he sounded this way in his first...

    American Archive of Public Broadcasting to preserve nearly 4,500 Sesame Street episodes

    I wondered the same thing. I recently searched the site to see if any episodes are available (either just for viewing there or online) and it doesn't seem like any have (and didn't they say the first batch of episodes would be available in six weeks a few months ago?). I hope the plans haven't...

    Classic Sesame Clips on Youtube

    I thought that as well. I also feel it sounds like a Jerry Nelson voice, but he's doing Herry. I know in the early seasons it was common for performers to be heard as multiple characters in segments that only feature characters who could have been done by anyone, but by season 11 I doubt they'd...

    Where are all these classic Sesame Street episodes coming from?

    I've seen that a few rare first season clips have been posted on Muppet Wiki's Twitter page. They're not full clips, but they are something.

    Classic Sesame Clips on Youtube

    The Muppet Wiki page for Suzanne Farrell includes video links to all of her appearances. Which includes this rarity, "At the Barre". I'd seen on Scott's page that one script with the sketch lists Herry and Telly while another lists Grover and Herry. When I first saw the segment described...

    Little things we've noticed

    It is weird that all of the adults were rather casual/oblivious to Bert's cries to privacy or a towel. At least nobody got into the tub while Bert was in there (while it may fuel a certain rumor, it does seem surprising that Ernie didn't get into the bath tub to sing along). Bert keeps...

    Little things we've noticed

    Recently I noticed on Ernie & Bert Sing-Along that the album becomes less zany on side two. Side 1 has a lot of zaniness, we also get a lot of characters coming in and establishing they are there (some in absurd ways, like Grover, Herry, and Cookie traveling on a motorcycle). Side 1 ends with...
