    This is reminding me of the episode of the Muppet Show Alice Cooper guested on. He dances around with ghosts to "Welcome to my Nightmare" and monsters demolish a school while he sings "School's Out."

      OMG, I've been wanting to see that Pyrimid skit again. That was one of my favorate Sesame Street skits when I was young. I didn't know it was edited, and that skit never scared me, I thought it was funny.

        Funny I remember that skit well, but don't know why it would be banned. I guess I was more into the silly approach they did with the humor as opposed to the scary content that probably still got to the 5 year olds none the less.

          Here's my question.

          How do you know these skits were officially banned?

            It says on the YT blerb describing the skit. I think with the monster one it's the fact that she DOES kinda insinuate that the "monster" can do whatever he wants and she'd sit on his lap etc... I guess in a PC world, kids cannot have imaginary friends.

            I have no idea why they'd ban the B&N skit...unless, if I put on my overly touchy- PC- read- into -way -too -much- to find -something to get pissed and outraged about hat... one could say that...well....it's just that....

            I have no idea. No stinking idea. I loved the skit when I was little, I loved when they started tap dancing together and singing rubber ducky...

              That wasn't scary! It was just goofy.

                I remember the sketch well enough, but it certainly didn't frighten me. I mean, these weren't like zombies or even mummies, just an Egyptian-style Ernie and Bert. Always liked Ernie and Bert when I was little.

                  I probably would have been a little scared of that as a child, but not enough for it to be edited.

                        If you watched SS in 1975-1980, you'd remember it.

                          I seem to recall that skit airing into the late 80's/early 90's. I was never scared by it as a child, but I always found it weird. A lot of vintage Sesame Street was weird.
