Hey all,
Just got my Old School Sesame Street DVD set. * sings * Memories! Well, sort of. It seems the episodes were all from the year before I was born as I don't recall ever seeing firsthand, Gordon with the fro ( 'cept for a flashback I saw (( or dreamed )) of him & Susan tying the knot ). Anyhoo, obviously there were at least 2 different Gordon actors but I'm wondering if there was a third. I always thought that the 1969 Gordon was also the bald Gordon I've always known. Is it? :smirk:

Keep in mind that I'm more of a fraggle dork so I don't know all of the common factoids about The Street.

The first two are on the SS DVD Set, the third (Roscoe Orman) still is on the show today (he's the bald one)

There are in fact four Gordons. There was one on the test pilot. But I forget his name.

Thanks Gordon Fans

Hee hee. If only I'd've flipped through the DVD booklet, I wouldn't have had to bug ya. That's why beer & Sesame Street don't mix.... well... sort of. :smirk:

Yeah, On the Sesame Street Biorgarphy On Te Hstory Channel, They show footage from the test pilot, and there was another person playing Gordon before Matt Robinson. It's from 1968. I have that special on video.

So, the DVD set only has the normal pilot but not the test pilot? :smirk:
