Obviously, we don't have a clue who it really is, but it still sounds like Richard to me

Well it mostly sounds like Jeff Moss to me because Billy Idol sounds a little like the lavendar alphabeat from the band Little Chrissy and the Alphabeats and the lavendar alphabeat is performed by Jeff Moss.

I too also have a few letter and alphabet sketches to share.

Alphabet:

1) A group of kids creating the alphabet with their bodies (shown from overhead) and throwing various objects in the air, like - paper airplanes, paper frisbees to name a few. A very creative sketch I might add.

2) The nighty-night-time alphabet, it shows various creatures, plants, making letters, thus making up the alphabet as they go along. A few examples - a snake with a bonnet is the letter "S", two swans put their tails together to make "W", and so on and at the end the little boy/girl does the Z himself - with his own body! Another creative sketch.

Letters:

1) Typewriter Guy "V": Every time I look back at this sketch, I burst out laughing, mostly because this guy is persistent - he types up the letter V, and the vacuum keeps taking his paper, and him with it!! (at the end).

2) We all live in a capital "I": Cute song, and different in it's own way.

3) Maria asking a bunch of kids "Who wants to make a (letter)". They fly all over the place and eventually they make a letter, and say it. A new sketch I know, but it's special.

4) A lot of you would think differently, but I actually liked the sketch where they take a rock or iron, and create an "I" out of it. True the music is spooky, but it is also unique too.

I will share more favorite alapbet/letter sketches when I think of some more, until then - good job, all of you.

I can see why Kevin Clash did several singing characters... he was the first REAL African-American Muppeteer, if I'm not mistaken

S Skit With BB and the Adult Cast.

This goes back at least to the late 70s or early 80s.

Mr. Hooper Gordon Bob and Susan from the looks of it are going to sing at a concert.

BB who's the conductor blows whatever that round things is called, says

Song:

Points the stick at them

Adults: SSSSSSSSSS, makes the S sound.


Audience claps.


I'm suprised they didn't BOO.
