To be honest, I didn’t even think she was in season 2 so early in the show..... then again, I was never familiar with her character that much other than her being deaf.

Recently, the wiki unveiled info on a 1987 episode where David Attenbird learns about Sesame Street while hosting a wildlife program. I wonder how the video source might take shape.

Not sure if this is for this thread or not, but seen on Muppet Wiki some editing history noted “misinterpretation in CTW Archives”, for Counting is Wonderful and a few episodes. I assume those are all episodes that previously listed the segment (the wiki page for Counting is Wonderful now lists a 1990s episode as it’s eka).
Makes me wonder if the segment wasn’t broadcast as an insert after all (and perhaps all older listings of the segment were different performances). That would help it make sense that the song hadn’t had a picture from the old school days.

I guess I should stop listing that song in wishlists.

The wiki now has info on Tom’s first appearance.


also, I think it might be the first time Oscar did his “I like being angry, which makes me happy, which makes me unhappy, which makes me happy...” bit.

There was an episode where Oscar told the story of how he moved to Sesame Street:

https://muppet.fandom.com/wiki/Episode_2089

Sounds like an exciting episode. I had wondered if it was true or if it was Oscar making things up, I did notice that the only humans in the flashback are Bob, Gordon, and Susan (made me wonder if there were any references to Mr. Hooper being alive), though the script has Oscar mention Gordon's bald head (would have been interesting if they'd given him a wig; hmm, should I have wondered if Oscar was orange in the flashback?).

And interesting how at the end

I remember seeing that episode back in the day. No mention of Mr. Hooper, and I *think* Roscoe wore a wig, but I can't say for sure
