    Cool Counting Collection: MC Style

    Huh. All this time I thought he counted backwards from 20 (maybe other people’s false memory?). I guess I subconsciously continued to assume that after seeing it online.

    Little things we've noticed

    He did say that the only kind of rabbit he’s not allergic to is a stewed rabbit. I guess that way he’s unaffected, or maybe he was just going to stew the rabbit for the evil of it and not actually eat it.

    Cool Counting Collection: MC Style

    One thing I didn’t think about until this week: Miami Mice does involve 20, but it’s counting backwards from 20 (kinda fitting for a numbers collection to end with a lesson on counting backwards), but it seems like it’s not as about 20 as I had thought. Going by the Muppet Wiki description and...

    Cool Counting Collection: MC Style

    Now I’m remembering that there’s a three or four part segment where Grover watches as a girl counts to a high number (I think 100). Maybe that could have been good inter spread across the segments (though what points do each part end and begin at?). Or maybe the segment where a girl tells...

    Cool Counting Collection: MC Style

    Good list. I wondered if you'd still include segments that made it to the DVD (part of me wondered if we should have just added one classic clip for each number). Considering the Harvey Kneeslapper segment involved him holding a cookie, it is fitting for "do you want one?" to follow "How Many...

    Nick at Nite Thread

    During the tenth anniversary marathon, there was a special called Those Nick at Nite Promos. I only caught the end of that special when it aired, and for years I have been looking for it online. And just a few nights ago, I found it. Those Nick at Nite Promos - 10 Years of Better Living...

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

    When I was a kid, I didn't really notice the field trips being educational. I was always excited because it meant we got to spend most of the day out of school (so I find it odd on television when characters tend to dislike these trips). I don't remember many times when we were required to write...

    The "You know what?" thread

    On most of Judd Hirsch's sitcoms, he played a character who had been estranged from his daughter for years before the shows began (including cases where that's not a real big plot point). The first episode of Taxi has Alex call up his daughter in Florida and meet her for the first time since...

    Sketches You Hated as a Kid

    In the past, somebody on this forum said that the reason they only had credits once a week was because they felt the time allotted for end credits could be better used to teach more lessons, but Union rules mandated that they had to have credits at least once a week. I’m not sure how official...

    Classic Sesame Clips on YouTube

    I guess Monsters in Day Care is the most distinctive, as it had Herry visiting children in day care and then goes back to his own monster day care (club house?) to tell them what he learned. Must have been part of the seasons curriculum to show kids in day care.

    Classic Sesame Clips on YouTube

    It did seem redundant to have Monsters in Day Care and Sesame Street Goes to Day Care, especially whenever Herry Monster was in Sesame Street Goes to Day Care.

    I know that was probably more of a joke, but I never thought of adding Elmo's World as a way to save money from new inserts (they do still have to come up with 15 minutes of material for Elmo's World, even though they initially repeated the same one all week). After all, there's several season...

    The "You know what?" thread

    Yeah, based on how the documentary turned out, I am surprised they didn't talk about that episode (or the fact that Maria and David were pretty much an interracial couple before Maria and Luis got together).

    The "You know what?" thread

    In Ernest Saves Christmas, during Joe’s meeting about Christmas Sleigh before he decides to take the Santa Claus job after all, he’s told that those kinds of movies generate sequels. good point, but in most horror/thriller franchises, isn’t it really the main villain who continues to appear...

    Little things we've noticed

    I don't think this was intentional, but in thinking about The Muppets Take Manhattan, it seems like with Kermit having all his friends be in Manhattan Melodies, they really saved money by not having to hire a casting director or auditioning actors (did they audition an understudy for Kermit?)...

    The Great Muppet Caper original theatrical trailer (1981)

    So clearly the audio and soundtrack was still being in editing when the trailer was put together, so some things sound a little different than in the movie. But is that shot of Beauregard saying "what color are their hands now?" a different take? Something about it seems different, maybe the...

    The Great Muppet Caper original theatrical trailer (1981)

    I wonder if The Jim Henson Company has copies of the TMM and GMC trailers in their archives, or if that’s ITC or Universal who has them (if they aren’t lost). I know, Henson has had the TDC trailer since at least the DVD release.

    The Muppets and YouTube.com

    I've known that the Muppets hosted TGIF on the night of the Garth Brooks episode, but I only now learned that they also hosted the line-up one week before Muppets Tonight premiered (that night I was at the movies seeing Muppet Treasure Island...).

    So glad to see the Snuffleupagus-sized trash can episode. A few thoughts: * Those are some impressive camera angles! * Oscar couldn't get into the can by standing on Telly's shoulders. Maybe he should have asked Bruno to help. * I was expecting the Twiddlebug sanitation worker to actually be...
