Yeah, I want to look through that again. I did look at the Barkley closing and the Big Bird appearance on the Today show, but I missed a lot of other good stuff. I'd really like to see that original Elmo. Though it's too bad he doesn't say anything in that one.
Something that I noticed though. The Barkley closing credits David L. Smryl as Mr. Hanford. I didn't think he was on the show until after they changed the credits. That's something I might want to look into.
Yeah, David L. Smyrl joined the show in 1990, and they did away with The Barkley and the Kids Closing Credits in 1992, and switched to the animated ones. It was kind of surprizing seeing Uncle Wally and Savion's names both on there, I had forgotten that they were even on the show together for a brief time. Daffyfan, do you happen to remember that episode that was shown? I was watching the show religiously in those days, but I never saw that particular episode.
O.K. I guess imdb.com gave some erroneous information about Northern Calloway being on the show until 1992, meaning the second actor to play Mr. Hanford wouldn't have been on the show until later than that, but I get it now.
In answer to your question, no, I don't remember the ep with Oscar and that lady teaching the kids an African lullaby. I would like to see more clips of that one. But overall it was good to see the Barkley closing again. It sort of reminds me of my dog.
Thanks for the clips! It's nice being able to see the classic Barkley credits sequence I remember for the first time in 13 years.
Another clip I recognize from watching Sesame Street back in the day is the live-action segment on how cheese is made. I remember the vats and presses, as well as the final scene of tasting the finished product.
