    Thank you very much @muppetgem ! I usually don't get written feedback from other users, so it's nice to see that people enjoy what I write. I want to restate something I told @sesamemuppetfan a while ago on this thread:

    "I own the SS Old School 1 & 2 DVD sets and have watched them multiple times, and I've downloaded some of the classic episodes from iTunes. So while I'm definitely not the next Norman Stiles or Jerry Juhl, I feel that I've got a good sense of what kind of humor was used on the Street back in the day. And the SST Episode Guide on Muppet Wiki is a good source for finding cartoons, films, and Muppet sketches, too!" [EDIT: YouTube is also a great source too, especially with the recent abundance of complete vintage episodes.]

    So as long as there's an audience and as long as I come up with ideas, I'll keep writing. I originally planned to stop after 40 outlines and now I'm working on my 80th (!!!) outline, which is coming soon. But for now, here's number 79 with a true fan-favorite Muppet who only appeared a handful of times during the 1970s...Frazzle! Also featuring Oscar, David Maria, Luis, Ernie, Bert, and Mr. MacIntosh!

    Sesame Street Old School Outline 79

    Season 8: Mr. MacIntosh gives dance lessons/Oscar is afraid of Frazzle

    Sponsors: G, P, 8

    Scene 1: David and Maria sing “Tu Me Gustas (I Like You)” to each other.

    Cartoon: P is for Picnic

    Muppets: Cookie Monster shows the word “AMOR”

    Film: The Mad Painter #8

    Cartoon: I thought a thought about small things… (art by Cliff Roberts)

    Film/Song: Henson #8

    Scene 2: David introduces a young monster named Frazzle to Maria, Gordon, Susan, and the kids. Then he introduces Frazzle to Oscar, who quickly ducks back into his can, frightened by the monster’s appearance.

    Cartoon: A gorilla that knows G words applies for a job

    Film: Building a log cabin

    Cast: Luis desperately looks for “AGUA” in the desert, without success. Fortunately, it starts to rain and Luis finally has the “AGUA” that he needs.

    Cartoon: G is for Goat

    Scene 3: Oscar refuses to come out of his trashcan if Frazzle’s still outside. After a while, he pops out wearing a scary mask. Frazzle runs off in terror. As the adults chase after him, Oscar realizes that he might have made a mistake.

    Muppets: The Amazing Mumford’s pillar trick (featuring Grover and Herry Monster)

    Cartoon: Two girls talk about being scared. One claims that she never gets scared. The other one leaves and returns with a big monster mask, scaring the first girl.

    Celebrity: Bill Cosby and his “twin” recite the alphabet

    Scene 4: Oscar admits to the adults that he wore his mask because Frazzle looks scary and he was afraid that Frazzle would hurt him. Maria explains that just because somebody looks different doesn’t mean he or she is a bad person. David says that it’s okay to be scared, but tells Oscar to just say hello to Frazzle to overcome his fear. Oscar finally greets Frazzle, who makes his trademark noise. Oscar finds this sound extremely annoying and enjoyable at the same time! Oscar and Frazzle go back and forth with some loud, grouchy noises as the adults smile.

    Cartoon: Jazz Spies #8

    Muppets/Song: “The Song of the Count”

    Cartoon: P is for Pole, Pail, Paint, Propeller, Plug, Postman, Pigeon, Parachute, Pepper, and Parasol

Susan asks Mr. MacIntosh how he learned to dance, and Mr. MacIntosh reflects on his first lesson and first dance performance as a child (flashback sequences included). This tale inspires Big Bird, and he asks for a dance lesson. Mr. MacIntosh agrees, and the adults decide to join in too.

    Cartoon: A guitarist is drawn onscreen as English- and Spanish-speaking children try to guess what is being drawn.

    Film/Song: “Two is You and Me” (written and sung by Joe Raposo)

    Cartoon: Julius asks Jasper to describe an apple. Jasper does so, and eats the apple in the process!

    Muppets: Prairie Dawn puts on a school pageant about parts of the face (featuring Ernie, Herry Monster, Cookie Monster, Grover, and Bert)

You deserve a break after fixin’ all these toasters, clocks, radios, and little red wagons.
