    Keep them coming dude! I'm enjoying them so much. I've almost got the first comic book drawn from one of your outlines. Now It might be quite a while cause I want to have at least 10 made before I start coloring them and getting them more art quality lookin then just pencil line drawings. I wouldn't look good. I want to get me a digital Art Pad so I can draw them that way and be able to color them quickly then having to put map colors to paper.
    Digital art is more better lookin then pencil but still I enjoy drawing on paper mostly cause I've never drawn on a pad before. Oh I was going to ask.
    Do you have like a note book that you are keeping these all in? Cause I would like to know if you would be able to point out an outline you've done that has to do with Snuffy and Big Bird throughout the whole outline? Cause I would love that to me my next comic I would start on. Like I had said before I'm not going in order on your outline (as in picking the ones I want to comic book style) and just randomly picking. I had seen one that I liked but I wanted to know if there's one I haven't seen another outline of Snuffy and Big Bird. Peace out and talk to you when I can.

    Hi! I just went through a few pages on this thread, and outlines 43, 44, 46, 49, 56, 61, 65, 73, 85 and 99 feature scenes with Big Bird and Snuffy. There isn't one that revolves entirely around them, but hopefully I will get around to writing one.

    Feel free to browse those outlines I mentioned, starting on the third page of this thread. Maybe you'll be interested in reading earlier outlines like those, and perhaps inspired to create some more comics! Good luck, and have fun drawing. Can't wait to see a few of these in the future.

    Thank you for the help. I've choose one that I really did enjoy. The Disco Party one. Really stood out to me. The other ones like you said didn't really center around them but this one kinda did. Thanks Again. Peace out!

    This year marks the 42nd anniversary of Sesame Street's New Mexico trip. To honor the occasion, I've decided to write a series of six outlines about a brand-new visit to New Mexico. Over this arc, the cast visits Luis's younger sister (played by actress Carla Pinza, who is rumored to have played Maria for a handful of episodes in Season 2). Featuring Big Bird, Biff and Sully, the Count, Bert, and the entire human cast! Plus, Super Grover looks for a telephone booth, Ernie does the laundry, and Maria plays Charlie Chaplin. Enjoy!

Afterwards, Luis says that his sister Sofia just had a baby, making Luis an uncle! Maria says that she and Luis will travel to the Rodriguez family’s ranch in New Mexico to help with the baby. Big Bird asks if he can come, since he’s an expert caretaker. He reminds them of the time he helped babysit Buffy’s son Cody. Maria and Luis agree to let Big Bird join them. Big Bird wants to leave for New Mexico right away, but Luis and Maria tell him that he has to start packing.

    Scene 4: Big Bird reads the first names on his list: “David and Mr. Looper!” He asks Mr. Hooper and David, who are too busy running the store to travel to New Mexico.

At the end, several of the adults agree to join! The Count: “I’ve decided that I will go to New Mexico to count new things like horses, chickens, cows, and pieces of hay! Oh, it will be marvelous!”

    To clarify for people who are new to SSOSOs (Sesame Street Old School Outlines), I started writing these nearly four years ago after watching the episodes from the Sesame Street Classics series on iTunes. Being an avid fan of 1970s Sesame Street, I wrote a couple and decided to keep plowing along. I haven't stopped coming up with ideas since! It's a lot of fun and I'm glad that more people on the forum are reading and enjoying them.
    ***NOTE: These are ALL my original ideas, and if there are any similarities between any episodes from the actual series, it is purely accidental. However, I reference Muppet Wiki and YouTube frequently for inserts, cartoons, and films to place in between my written street scenes.

    Stay tuned for two new outlines coming soon. One is a FIRST in the history of SSOSOs, and the other one features Cookie Monster and a (in my opinion) HILARIOUS plot twist!

    Right now, I'm doing ONLY outlines from Seasons 3-10, which would all take place in the 1970s. Perhaps I might do outlines from the 1980s or 1990s in the future, but it's unlikely.

    If anyone would like to see some of my additional Sesame Street-themed work, check my "Jesse's Girl" thread and "Poems, Haikus, and Whatnot(s)" thread. I also have written several full fan fiction scripts for the Muppet Show. The links to all three threads are posted below. And if anyone has any more questions, I would appreciate private messages instead of thread replies. Thanks!

    Here's a milestone outline. What makes this one so special? Not only is this number 110, but it is also a Season 2 episode outline! Featuring Matt Robinson as Gordon, and appearances by rare characters including the pedantic Herbert Birdsfoot, the monotonous Professor Hastings, and the short-lived duo of Larry and Phyllis. Enjoy my FIRST-EVER Season 2 outline in the Sesame Street Old School Outline series!

Cookie reluctantly does so, and is shocked to find out that Grouches love putting cookies on their burgers! After slathering spicy brown mustard and strawberry syrup on top, Oscar chows down.

Oscar: “Wow, I haven’t eaten anything this rotten in ages! That was a great meal. Hey, are you making more Cookie-burgers tomorrow? Is this gonna be on the menu permanently?” As everyone struggles and Oscar smirks, the Count announces the sponsors. SS sign still: Ernie and Bert. CTW sign still: Big Bird.
