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.

I was gonna say the same thing. I think they probably didn't include Anyone's Nose because of copyright issues. That was actually a real song that used different lyrics, "Anything Goes" from the musical of the same name. The only reason I can think of for not including Ali Baba is because it had characters pushing each other.

If characters pushing each other is the reason it was cut, we really are just walking on egg shells now.

During a few months ago, there was a clip posted of the pledge break from the pledge drive version of episode 2835, also known as Big Bird's Birthday or Let Me Eat Cake.
