    The brick wall

    Hello out there, this is squirrelboy. I have sort of silly question to ask, but does anyone remember a brick wall that the muppets either sat on or used during their skits? And if so, what year was it taken out, or why was it taken out for that matter? Just wondering.... Your thoughts...

    Skits that made you kind of sad

    I know exactly what you mean about Ernie, when I think back to when that "Dance myself to sleep" sketch was on, I kept wondering - what was the whole purpose of taking Bert (in his bed) outside for? And as soon as it happens, Ernie gets into his own bed (with a grin on his face), and starts to...

    Skits that made you kind of sad

    I seem to remember a sketch that always broke me into tears, it goes like this: Two little girls are roaming the streets, searching for their dog "Ace or Abe". Anyhow, they go into a printing store where they made posters using big metallic stamps to say their dog is gone missing. After...

    What's your favorite letter segment?

    I too also have a few letter and alphabet sketches to share. Alphabet: 1) A group of kids creating the alphabet with their bodies (shown from overhead) and throwing various objects in the air, like - paper airplanes, paper frisbees to name a few. A very creative sketch I might add. 2)...

    What sketches scared you as a kid?

    I just thought of another somewhat scary sketch or two: 1) Bert & Ernie at the beach, I could never get over how freaked out Ernie was when he couldn't find his buddy Bert because he was nearly mouth deep in sand and covered up with his beach hat. Mostly it's because every time I go to the...

    What sketches scared you as a kid?

    Here's an intersting, yet scary sketch: It's based on a talking chair talking about the word "SIT". It's actually not a half bad skit, until the ending is shown, where a monster/giant sees the chair and reads the word "sit", and sits down on the chair, almost crushing the chair. And from...

    What sketches scared you as a kid?

    I have a few more scary clips to share: 1) If moon was cookie song, sung by Cookie Monster himself. It took me quite a while to get over Cookie eating the moon, mainly because I kept looking up in the sky every night, to make sure the moon was still there. Sounds odd - I know. 2) Any...

    What sketches scared you as a kid?

    Here's one I am sure "all" of you have seen once or twice that's scary. 1) It starts off in what looks like a hang-out (for gangsters), and there's these two muppets sitting at a table when Lefty (I believe) came up to the door, and the knock he was supposed to use was three knocks. Once he...

    What sketches scared you as a kid?

    I got another scary one, This is the sketch on "Y" is for yak. When I saw this one years ago, I thought it was interesting to see a yak doing a cartoon on the letter Y, doing words such as "Yak, You, Yes". At least that's until I saw the ending of this one where the narrator says to the yak...

    What sketches scared you as a kid?

    I have a few more to add to my collection: 1) I have seen this blue puppet playing a piano from time to time, the way he played that piano was - well, ridiculous. The keys would be falling off, and by the time he got through with a song of his, he would tear his piano in two! Not a pretty...

    What sketches scared you as a kid?

    I remember that robot sketch too, the ending was frightning indeed. I have a few more sketches to share. 1) Do any of you remember the "bridgekeeper" cartoons?, that bridgekeeper was freaky looking! He looked more like a wizard than anything. Scary!! 2) This one was based on the letter...

    Jazzy Spies #1 and Baker #1 ... do they exist?

    Excuse me? I try hard to be part of this post, and what you're doing "mikebennidict" hurts my feelings a lot. So please stop. The falling baker thing doesn't "bother me" exactly, I was only curious - he always seemed like he was forcing himself to fall and become a mess. Is there something...

    Jazzy Spies #1 and Baker #1 ... do they exist?

    squirrelboy here, I wish I could find the original #10 sketch out there on youtube, it's just they list things so oddly on that site that it can be hard to find stuff on the internet, and trust me - I am still new (internet wise). I know the new #10 is on there, but I am still searching for...

    Jazzy Spies #1 and Baker #1 ... do they exist?

    squirrelboy here, I just wanted to say, I would have never thought about the way the baker holds his food products like that before. That's really interesting. Trust me, I believe you - I do! It's just interesting to think of it like that. Take #4's example for instance: When I saw that...

    Jazzy Spies #1 and Baker #1 ... do they exist?

    squirrelboy here, Thank you so much for your input, I appreacite that a lot. It would be nice if the original "Baker #10 sketch and the Baker #1 sketch" could be on youtube - that way, it's a gift from the ages. Even I have to admit, after seeing that baker fall down those same stairs so...

    Jazzy Spies #1 and Baker #1 ... do they exist?

    squirrelboy here, Back in the early 80's, counting was more fun, much easier to do, because certain sketches went slow enough to be followed one number at a time. The baker sketches especially - they labeled everything they counted with numbers, so it was easier to follow, I liked that kind...

    What sketches scared you as a kid?

    squirrelboy here, One or two sketches that gave me quite a scare goes like this: A bunch of kids are swimming in a pool (music is playing in the background), suddenly the music changes to the Jaws theme music, something is floating through the water, the kids get scared, and it's only to...

    What sketches scared you as a kid?

    squirrelboy here, I have a few more to add to the list. 1) This is a cartoon based on the letter "O". It goes: "O" Orange!! (a guy takes the orange and drinks it), you then hear from a distance -- OH!! A little scary - but more wierd. 2) Another one that freked me out when I was...

    Jazzy Spies #1 and Baker #1 ... do they exist?

    Squirrelboy here, minor muppetz, thank you - maybe I did "jump the gun" so to speak, I just didn't know if anyone cared about those sketches anymore. But you inspired me, thanks. It seems to me that you are quite a part of that site minor muppetz, it may not have any video based clips, but I...

    What sketches scared you as a kid?

    Squirrelboy here, I have yet another creepy sketch or two. and they are: This cartoon starts with a man working in a supermarket who is stacking cans of food in piles of 12, and every time he's finished, a customer would take a can out of his perfect pile, thus ruining it. Angered by this...
