    International skits on Youtube...

    Odd-but-relevant questions about what happened to a certain letter song in Sweden: I heard that "Two G Sounds" was adapted for the Swedish co-production of Sesame Street (because Swedish, like English, also pronounces G differently depending on the next sound in a syllable). To any Nordic...

    Sponsored Letter Pairs never seen on classic "Sesame Street"?

    From Seasons 3-8 at least, CTW had a scrambled-alphabet pattern that cycled predictably through the season (which is why so many premieres in the Old School sets included the letter D as one Thing of the Day). When episodes focused on two letters, the general rules went like this: Check the...

    SST 50th anniversary fan fic: Julia Learns the Past

    Great frame story (I especially love the way you recap the show's history in reverse chronological order, and try your hardest to include every recurring character). Even the geography of the set felt like a character in its own right. My only serious complaint is that you crammed in so many...

    Sesame Street Old School Outlines

    Ummm, no such film was actually made; the series stopped at #11. Has anybody done a fan outline/fan-script for Mad Painter #12 as a hypothetical? (The character would need to escape from whatever institution committed him in the 11 film, and probably get arrested by a police officer who...

    A "Street We Live On" Fanfiction

    It's a shame the rewrite never continued...I'd probably include a few more humans' debuts (Maria and Luis, Linda, Olivia, Buffy -- #1037, the episode with Big Bird feeling jealous of Cody, could show a not-so-happy event being resolved. "Sometimes you got mad with everybody, Big Bird...but your...

    What sketches scared you as a kid?

    That animation with the fish was about "all/some/none"; the creepy shark saying "ONE" frightened "all" the others away at the end (he literally hadn't been there until then).

    Sesame Street Letter/Number Guide: Season 2

    I'm guessing that the curriculum advisors thought counting to 1 felt silly and pointless; if only one of something exists, the number is fairly obvious (ask any kindergartner who has trouble sharing a toy or a snack!). If I'd been an adult on the curriculum committee back then, I would have...

    Sesame Street Letter/Number Guide: Season 2

    Yes indeed, the sponsor announcement and CTW sign for Episode 1092 accidentally repeated the ones intended for #1091. The actual sponsors for #1092 are M/N/3; how the producers never caught such a huge mistake, I'll never know.

    Sponsored Letter Pairs never seen on classic "Sesame Street"?

    Sounds as if you caught half of the X-episode marathon that hit our PBS station, all right; that string of eight aired when I was in my early teens, when I remember waiting till nobody else was home before I watched Sesame Street (can't embarrass my folks with a "baby show" on TV, after all).

    Where are all these classic Sesame Street episodes coming from?

    Before Old School Volume 2 was even released, someone had an uncut copy of Test Show #1 for sale on eBay; I chipped in to help a fellow forum member buy it in exchange for an .mp4 version.

    Where are all these classic Sesame Street episodes coming from?

    I'd do almost anything (as long as it was legal, didn't hurt anyone, and didn't involve some topics too personal for Muppet Central) to get my hands on the first ten seasons intact.

    Sponsored Letter Pairs never seen on classic "Sesame Street"?

    Exactly why I was puzzled about that eight-in-a-row sequence...were the guys at Channel 42 dusting off their master-tape collection and thinking, "We have these stacked together, better show these one last time before they get trashed"? It's that incident that got me wondering how CTW decided...

    Sponsored Letter Pairs never seen on classic "Sesame Street"?

    During the mid-1980s, I lived in a city where the PBS station aired a string of eight consecutive episodes with the letter X as a common sponsor. I suspect they were not in chronological order, since no such string exists on Muppet Wiki -- and since the CTW educational advisors would have...

    Episodes that Have Stuck with You

    When in Episode 3898 was Snuffy called imaginary? He'd been revealed as real 15 years before, so it's unlikely that the cast of the newer show would forget and foul up.

    Sponsored Letter Pairs never seen on classic "Sesame Street"?

    During most of the "two letters/one number per episode" seasons, these seem to be the general rules: Keep the "newer" of the two letters taught on the previous episode, as defined by CTW's re-scrambled list. Replace the "older" letter by the next one in line {not sure how duplicates were...

    PBS launches first-ever national 24/7 PBS Kids Channel via broadcast OTA and on-line

    I'd define classic Sesame Street as "Season 1 until Henson's death"; the show took its first dive after that. But yes, a general "vintage CTW" block that covered many shows would draw a lot of nostalgic adults in. Imagine TEC Mondays, 3-2-1 Contact Tuesdays, and so on...

    Muppets Tarot Deck

    Hmmm. Wonder what a more Sesame-specific deck might look like? I did a Google search for "Sesame Street Tarot" but didn't find more than a few individual fan-drawn cards. So far, these ideas come to mind -- Fool: Ernie (crazy logic, always off on his own adventures) with a laundry basket...
