      Nobody has mentioned the Kermit the frog as a journalist segment. Was that before he was in Muppets?


      Yes I believe so, Seasame started around 1969, The Muppet Show started around 1976.


      Kermit is the oldest muppet out there that people still recognize.

          Ok here's a weird question; do you remember the little thing that came on at the very end of the show? After the credits and all that...it was a bunch of stuff, like additional credits and they played this weird jazzy music, saxaphone and horns. I know the melody but I don't think I could put it into words...it became a childish compulsion almost for me to see it at the end...it wouldn't do to turn it on the news until the WHOLE FREEKIN THING was done.


          OH my god That thing was anoying :x Id just get a freaking headache after hearing that . plus one time It got so bad I wasfound banging my head on the walls well that's what my mom or someone else told me , & I wouldn't realize it. Oh that other ending is sooooo 1990s they decided to keep that one even though the intro music has changed.


          oh Who here remembers the number bits where there was some carnival music and a lil baby noise? ahh hahh

            I recall the cartoon buildings...the World Trade Center towers were amongst the dancing buildings if my memory serves me correctly...which it often times doesn't after 1992.

            And the number bits I LOVED- especially the marching band/carnival music with the baby noise. I'm thinking the little tune now. It's the music that takes me back; so very late 60's/70's faire. There's the one where they're assembling a kerosene lamp, the music then is pretty cool, and then there's one I LOVE with dolphins leaping in the water.

            Recall the one where all these kids are narrating how cool they are because they're 5 years old and can do all this stuff, "'cause I'm five".

            Or the bit where there's a hot dog bun and all this stuff appears in it that shoudn't be there like a bannana, corn on the cob etc...

            Dang, we're on a roll here!

                  I've found that the best phrase to search for on P2P for this is "vintage Sesame Street." Not that I've ever downloaded anything with those programs, mind you.

                  I've been making VCDs of old (that is, good) clips from Sesame Street for my daughter. This is one case where it's not just our golden memories; the older Sesame Street actually is much better than the newer, Elmo-saturated version. It's smarter, it's funnier, and it's not marketed towards toddlers. They might as well throw Barney the Dinosaur and the Teletubbies on the new Street.

                  Remember when Cookie Monster had a mouth that was sort of like a blue beak? He was just called "Monster" then, but it was basically the same character. He was in a few skits with Bert & Ernie. (By the way, I'm sure that if Bert & Ernie were gay, they'd be sleeping in the same bed instead of separate beds.)

                  Monsterpiece Theater.

                  All the song parodies.

                  The Amazing Mumford.

                  Ernie does art (usually of Bert, but he'd mess it up somehow).

                  Ernie has a banana in his ear.

                  Ernie eats cookies in bed.

                  One of the funniest clips ever is Ernie trying to get Bert to play tag.

                  Those aliens that seemed to think everything was a telephone or a chicken...?

                  The old Street had a huge cast. Now they're down to maybe a dozen muppets. They also used to do 168 episodes a year, and now they only do 26 -- one for each letter. Remember when the number and letter of the day actually had something to do with the show? They would do skits based on that letter or number. Now they just mention it at the end of the show like a sponser's name. "Oh hey, we're still educational: look, E! And 6!"

                    The thing I remember most are some of the more random educational clips set to music:

                    "Follow the arrows, they show you where to go" and there is a video of a guy running all over town following arrows and at some point winds up at the octupus in the zoo.

                    "It takes a lot of little nuts to make a jar of peanut butter" Basically and educational clip as to how PB is made.

                    "Come into the Garden" Video of a family working a small garden from planting time to harvest.

                    "Everybody sleeps" which has already been mentioned in this thread.

                      you guys might have mentioned this already but I remember the hispanic guy who had a relationship with one of the ladies on sesame street and they ended up getting married. I remember that above all.

                      but who were the people? someone please remind me...pretty please.

                      also I remember when everyone saw snuffulufagus and they agreed that big bird wasn't just a crack head after all

                          the first thing i remembered about sesame street was the Count and the Cookie Monster ( aaahhh cookies me love lots ) and ( let's count 1,2,3 ahahahaha )

                          The movie Follow that bird was great i loved everything about that movie as it stuck to the show but also gave more insight about Big Bird

                              African Alphabet Song and that one Sad Kermit Song (where he sings about where he was from, some pond song) are my favorite. I remember almost crying as a kid when Kermit song that song about his home. Anyone remember the name of that song?

                              They ones with the funny group names (like the Beetles who were ripoffs of the Beatles) always had good songs.

                                    Does anyone remember a segment on Sesame Street (Back in the mid to late 80s) where it was a sketch about "Wet Paint"? The lettering looked was written in wet paint and looked like blood to me, and they were splashing paint everywhere...

                                    it scared the HELL out of me back in the day.

                                        It's OK, next time I'll make you listen. I wish that it were in the power of all children to say that to their parents and to know that indeed they would be heard as we were in those wonderful days on Waltons Mountain.Narrator The Waltons (From the Runawa
