I mean it’s pretty much been that way since the beginning of YouTube. Regardless if certain sources may have been private, even just ripping clips from your personal VHS collection is illegal.

If any case, glad to see a copy has surfaced online.

Speaking of lost specials, "Sesame Street in Puerto Rico" has been uploaded...


Sure, it's basically a re-edited compilation of the street scenes in the Season 11 "Trip to Puerto Rico" story arc, but it's worth it for the new narration by Big Bird. Also, it's got the elusive 1978 CTW opening logo (the same variant seen in "A Walking Tour of Sesame Street" that year; beginning with "3-2-1 Contact" they sped-up part of the animation).

A video was posted on the complete history of Sesame Street Live... in Louisville, Kentucky.

The Complete History Of Sesame Street Live in Louisville Ky (youtube.com)

Louisville is across the river from where I live, so it is interesting to me (and I did see some of those shows there). I wonder how much interest I would have if it was the complete history of the show in another town (like "the complete history of Sesame Street Live in Cincinatti", or "The Complete History of Sesame Street Live in Dallas, Texas").

I think this may be ALL the Monsterpiece Theater segments!
A pretty impressive collection. It even includes that "American Monster Classics" segment from Season 38. (I wonder if someone at SesameWorkshop was looking at the Muppet Wiki as a guide?!)
What's interesting are some of the prints used. Some pre-1992 segments have the extended "Library" intro tacked on, and some segments have no intro (they likely also had the "Library" intro but had it removed so the video could remain under two hours). "Chariots of Fur" is the unaired 1990s remake. "Gone With the Wind" is the original 1987 version with Alistair Cookie's pipe intact (probably because they released that version on DVD).

I do not spend a lot of time looking at clips that are posted for Sesame Street, but I noticed that these segments have been posted recently. The first clip is from Season 30, and the second one is from Season 2.

A few segments are missing. There's no Ali Baba, Hamlet, Lethal Weapon 3, or Anyone's Nose. Not surprised about excluding Hamlet or Leathal Weapon 3.
