@DePingPong reuploaded "Big Bird's Birthday or Let Me Eat Cake".
This is a neat special mostly because Cookie is featured in street scenes as one of the main characters in the special. This aired in 1991 (after Jim Henson's death) so I wonder if Frank Oz considered leaving that year which is why Cookie is one of the main characters of this special.
something else about that special, according to Muppet Wiki Bert one line of dialogue ("Ernie") was lifted from this sketch...

And it's all thanks to @scarecroe and whoever gave him all these rare episodes; even if we won't get to see the actual video footage anytime soon, it's a lot fun to just view screenshots!
I’m just thankful we have screenshots, because that tells the story within it

I agree, for Out to lunch we also have the audio from the first few minutes so you can easily put them together and see what the footage is like

That certainly gave me a good laugh! Frank really stole the show in that one.

That was awesome. Don't know which part I liked best - Old Ernie and Bert (and a white bearded cow!) or how adorable Maria is!
