In the News Flash sketch "The Princess And The Cookie" when the Royal Lackey said he thinks he threw his sacroiliac out of whack he was rubbing his head in pain.
The goof is that the sacroiliac is really connected to the very lower part of the spine.
Another one comes to mind:
In the African Animal Alphabet, they sing "H is Hippopotamus here's a laugh". They could have used Hyena for the H, in reference to the classic term laugh like a hyena.
Try and figure these question involving the Count.
In the early seasons he'd pronounce a word with a v such as "seven" as "seven" but as the years go by the v sound changed into a w such as from "seven" to "sewen". Why is that?
and now for question 2:
In the early Count sketches in his...
Being a fellow Canadian I totally remember Canadian Sesame Street. Especially when they aired American episodes but replaced certain clips with French segments or some clips in English dubbed in French. Either way it was classic.
I remember that. The 16 Samba.
He was a 1 from the country
She was a 6 from the town
He fell in love when he saw her wearing her carnival gown
They had the orchestra playing
It was a key to romance
They made a brand new number when they begin to...dance
16 that's the number I mean
Hmmm...If I were to choose, I would say in no particular order (a little Bob Sagat humour there)
1. Grover - His absent-mindedness always cracks me up.
2. Cookie Monster - His appetite for destruction is a laugh riot.
3. The Sneaky Salesman - Always seeking silence when selling must be...
Another Ernie and Bert sketch that always cracks me up, is when they go to Egypt to explore a pyramid. The best part was when Ernie said and I quote:
Bert, the statu...the...the sta...the sta...the sta...the sta...atue just talked to be Bert!
I still fall to the floor laughing over that...
Another sketch that always kills me is when Cookie Monster puts on an overly-melodramatic scene. Like when he and Prairie Dawn were talking about the first cookie and the last cookie and Cookie Monster thought it was the last cookie...FOREVER!
I'd have to say my favourite songs are:
Anything by Little Jerry and The Monotones
Count It Higher
Thinking Of U
U Really Got A Hold On Me
Danger's No Stranger
The Word Is NO!
Earth Rain & Mud
Dance Myself To Sleep
Two Heads Are...
There were some letter segments I remember as a kid when they would show either an L or a B. The next thing you know the letter disintegrates and the sand would morph into an animal or everyday object that starts with that letter. Without question the music was very creepy. Still kinda haunts me...
