Man!!! I LOOOOOVE Alligator King. You can only see it if you're really reeally lucky (If you don't get this joke, reffer to Muppets at Disneyworld).

Did Bud Luckey also do Martian Beauty (9) and 8 Penny candy Man?

Yes, he did. Here's a list of everything Bud Luckey did:

Ladybugs' Picnic #12
It's A Lovely 11 Morning
Ten Turtles
Martian Beauty #9
Candy Man #8
The Alligator King #7
Country 6 (Snail Song)
Country 5 (Funny Farm)
Four Big Lions
"3" Song
Country 2 (Toucan Two-step)
Infinity Song (That's About The Size)

All of these were done by an animation company called Imagination, Inc. I believe they also did Schoolhouse Rock.

Also, even weirder...almost all of those skits are sung by Joe Raposo himself!

Karen Prell just reminded me of something I completely forgot!!!!!

Pixar animated the little lamps segment, after their cartoon Luxo Jr. (which is on the Toy Story 2 Video). Man, I used to love those.

Pixar did do them, right?

"Wanda the Witch" was done by Tee Collins. He was one of the few African-American cartoon animators of that time period, according to a NY Times Magazine article from 1970. ("Report Card on Sesame Street")

Boober_Gorg: Yet another addition for Paul and Sandra Fierlinger..."Seven Sopranos". It is listed on their site as an example of one of the SS segments they did.

On another note, I saw that segment on SS Unpaved last night...it contains the Fierlingers' signature "sketchy" animation style, and those freaky black-and-white backgrounds...

What is the address of Paul and Sandra Fierlinger's site? I think I know some of their other animations. And the music for that one, and probably some others, was done by Larry Gold.
