Am I the only one who noticed mid-'70s Bert has this weird flap thing going on above his upper-lip?



It's not the best example, but it's there.

No, I've always noticed that as well. I always assumed it had something to do with whatever eyebrow mech they had in his head above the top mouth plate, since that particular Bert puppet's mouth seemed to always scrunch up slightly whenever his eyebrow moved.

In the first two seasons, whenever Bert got mad, his bottom lip scrunched all the way up to his nose. I can imagine Frank did this by making a fist, and pushing his thumb straight up.

There was a guy on here years back named Corey S. Banned for one reason or another. But his legacy lives on in the comment section of YouTube, with any vintage Sesame clip.
"Happy 45th anniversary CTW!"
"Gnarly!"
"Huzzah!"
"Long live Joe Raposo!"
He's dead, stupid.
"RIP Joe Raposo!"
"Can You Ever Forgive Me?"
I guess if one comment isn't enough, thirty is not too many.

I definitely remembered the first quote he kept saying. Didn't know he was banned. What a shocker.
