Ok. I know that Jim Henson's last TV appearance was on Arsenio Hall before he died. Does anyone recall what were Jim's final Kermit & Ernie skits before his death?

I think the opera song "Up and Down" with Placido Flamingo and Ernie was recorded (or aired) in 1990. So was Kermit's "Tadpoles" song, and Guy Smiley's "Air" song.

Those stick figures of Ernie and Placido were cool! Do you recall any other final Henson skits on SS.

I am not quite sure if it's 1990, but there was this scene where Ernie sang the "Best Friend Blues" with Snuffy. It was a song about Bert being sick, and Big Bird visiting his grandma.

I remember the Best Friend Blues Song. Ernie was sitting on the green stairs in the arbour area. I think this was from late 1989 or 1990. Another one from early 1990 was when Kermit intreveiwed a bird who sang a song about divorce.
