Realize I haven't been here in awhile, but your comment about Sherlock Hemlock made me think of ANOTHER "obscure" Sesame Muppet - The Amazing Mumford - being that there is now a BAND called "Mumford and Sons", they should USE Mumford (the Muppet) in a segment, perhaps singing a song about the...

"Adding Case" by Green Guys ("Basket Case" by Green Day)
Tell your mom and dad
To listen to me add
The numbers one and one and one all at once
One and one is two,
And one more makes three, it's true
And three and one is four, no doubt about it
thought of one!
"Roxanne (You Don't Have to Go At the Stop Light)" by The Lead Police (or perhaps How Now Brown and The Moo Wave?)
Roxanne you don't have to go at the stop light
The red light's for stopping
And the green light's for going, day and night!
Roxanne, remember when you...
Oooh great thread! :D I like some of your ideas you made up awhile ago like "God Save the 14" by The X Pestles. Instead of "Nooooo....fuuuu-ture for yoooouuuu...." in the chorus, it could be "Theeeee....nuuum-ber four-teeeeenn...."
Some that I've thought of? Let's see...

If there were any Bellhop skits that counted as "individual classics", well...probably the ones about 2, 8, and 10 partly because I remember them the best and partly because these were the trippiest of the Bellhop segments. He gets badly injured in all three of these segments. In # 2, the kids...
All 4 of those characters were around back when I watched the show (particularly Elmo), but to me they just seem one-dimensional from an adult perspective. It's a shame because Fran Brill and Kevin Clash are both very talented people (I don't know the other two that well). Fran was great as Lily...
This one really scared me as a kid:
The burning fire and "dramatic" music in this one made this a scary clip for me back in the day. Glad it's finally posted ;)
Does anyone have the Gordon Voice-Over Alphabet segments for "F" and/or "R"? Those are the only ones I remember from my youth that have never been posted on the site. Coincidentally, both of those segments kinda scared me (especially "F").
Well, this completes my "'Sesame Street' skits I was afraid of as a kid that are currently on YouTube" list! It also completes my "list of childhood memories from 'Sesame Street' that have been posted on YouTube - including those currently NOT there like the 'Alligator In My Room' segment"! Well...
"'Allo gov'! 'Ey, are you the bloke what wants to talk about the Famous London Frog? Well 'ere I am in the froggy flesh! London Frog at your service!"
"I go' a brotha' what looks like you! Ol' blighter. Well, I'm off."
"Here you are, SIR! I believe this is what you are talking about...SIR...
A lot of my fave SS skits from the '90s could probably also count as '80s skits as well since a lot of them came out about 1989/1990:
"Sing A Song of 14"
"Mother Brown's Farm"
The Animal Dept. Store Elevator songs
some of the animations Bruce Cayard did as "ArtistMike" (i.e...
SS's "demise" (in my opinion)
The true "demise" of Sesame Street for me would be the '90s. 1990 is when it started since that's when Jim Henson and (I think) Joe Raposo died, though some of the number segments from that year were pretty cool like the one where numbers turn into animals...
