This sounds like an awesome episode, Forgetful Jones loses his numbers and thinks everybody stole them, and the episode ends with Gladys and Buster hosting the Sesame Street Nightly News, recapping the episodes events. This could have made a good (recurring) alternative to Sesame Street News. I wonder if there are any more episodes that end with Sesame Street Nightly News (I'm guessing they would be from the same season).

If it wasn't an occasional occurrence, then it seems they certainly had fun returning to the idea in Episode 2540.

Episode 220 features the first appearance of the song "What Makes Music", and also features a rarely-seen girl named Frannie, who was known to have appeared in a couple of the lost episodes, so it's good to see what she looks like (and to know that at least one of her appearances still exists).

Season 7, episode 882: Big Bird finds a lost boy/Winnie Wiggins introduces herself. https://muppet.fandom.com/wiki/Episode_0882

Finally, a confirmed performer for Winnie - the late great Richard Hunt! Notice how some his early Muppet roles were Large Lavender Live-Hand characters - Winnie Wiggins, Headline Howie, and the frustrated librarian in the "No Cookies in the Library" skit. Then he rose to fame as Don Music, Forgetful Jones, Gladys the Cow, Placido Flamingo, and Sonny Friendly.
