Sesame Street Video Clips

19 April 2006 · 553 comments

Update: Foldedspace reader Dennis has found a popularly-requested video. Here’s Loaf of bread, a container of milk and a stick of butter. Thanks, Dennis!

Update #2: Dutch has posted a bunch of YouTube clips for toddlers, including what seems to be additional Sesame Street clips. Right-click and open in a new tab, folks. You’ll want to go there next…


I state quite confidently that this is the best entry I’ve made in five years of weblogging. Go away if you have work things to get done. This is an enormous time-waster.

Below you’ll find a fantastic collection of Sesame Street video clips. These are great. I remember many of these from when I was a kid. I’ve tried to organzize them as best I can. If you know of more Muppet/Sesame Street clips, please let me know.

Let’s start with a song we all know by heart: “one two three FOUR five, six seven eight NINE ten, eleven twelve…”

Next we have a random selection of number and alphabet clips, as well as random skits:
Letters versus numbers.
Telephone rock
Look at this
The alligator king and his seven sons
Yakety yak
I remember liking this one as a kid: sounds
My martian cutie (number nine)
Jake the snake — body parts
King Minus
Fishing for the alphabet
Animal department store elevator
Song about riding the subway.
The rhyming song
Count it higher
Robert DeNiro imagines he’s Elmo (the spawn of Satan)
For Kris: the mad goat
Funny farm
The ladybug picnic
The number painter (and Stockard Channing! — I always loved this)
Mahna Mahna
We all live in a capital I
Choosing a national bird (hilarious!)
The villain in the panama hat

How about a collection of popular songs done Sesame Street-style?
Johnny Cash and Big Bird: Don’t Take Your Ones to Town”
R.E.M. and the Monsters: “Furry Happy Monsters”
Stevie Wonder: “1-2-3”
Ray Charles (and Patrick Stewart?!?): The Alphabet Song”
The Beetles: “Letter B”
Norah Jones (and that spawn of Satan, Elmo): “Don’t Know Y”
“Born to Add” (minus Bruce Springsteen)

For Jeff — the ‘yip yip’ Martians:
The Martians meet a telephone
The Martians meet a computer

Guy Smiley
The Remembering Game
Beat the Time
Mystery Guest

Oscar
It’s Not Easy Being Green
I Love Trash

Grover
Grover is surprised
Grover examines Kermit’s teeth

C is for Cookie!
Cookie Monster raps about healthy food (boo! sell-out!)
The mystery box (with Kermit)
Rhyming (with Kermit)
Cookie steals Ernie’s cupcakes

One of these things is not like the other
Eatin’ Cookie (a parody of “Makin’ Whoopee”)
Six cookies
Monsterpiece Theater: Chariots of Fur
Monsterpiece Theater: The King and I
Monsterpiece Theater: Twelve Angry Men

My favorite has always been Kermit
It’s Not Easy Being Green
A-B-C-D-E-F-Cookie Monster (very, very cute)
The mystery box (with Cookie Monster)
Rhyming (with Cookie Monster)
Muppet News Flash: Santa Claus

And now for the grand finale, a collection of Bert and Ernie videos!

Ernie and Lefty
Lefty and the painting

And, finally, the Muppet tribute to Jim Henson: Just One Person.

If you love these video clips, check out the complete first season of The Muppet Show, which is now available on DVD. (Also, this Songs From the Street boxed set features many of the songs above. Teach your children the songs you love!)

After watching some of these, I groused about Bert: “Bert is so lame. Who likes Bert?” “I like Bert,” mumbled Kris. “Why? How can you possibly like Bert?” I asked. Kris was firm: “Bert is sensible.” I just shook my head.

[all of this madness is via Metafilter, of course]

1 Will April 19, 2006 at 10:20

I LOVE the ‘yip-yip’ martians. Also Bert & Ernie – way, way ahead of their time.

2 Nikchick April 19, 2006 at 10:27

The first link goes to the Stevie Wonder song, not the pinball number song. I found the pinball number song here: http://www.devilducky.com/media/41257/

The reason I went to look it up is because in all these years of listening to it (and knowing it by heart) I never actually “heard” the emphasis on FOUR and NINE and when you wrote it up that way, I just *had* to go listen again. I always heard it as a pause after, but not an emphasis on those numbers… in fact, I would have said the emphasis was on the FIVE and TEN if you’d asked.

I made Chris listen to it, and when asked, he hears the emphasis where you do.

3 J.D. April 19, 2006 at 10:33

That Chris is a good man.

I went back and fixed the link to the correct YouTube video. Thanks for digging up the DevilDucky link.

I’m trying to find time today to watch all the Bert and Ernies. I love ’em!

4 J.D. April 19, 2006 at 10:42

I love the Bert’s brother Bart clip. It’s hilarious.

I found a couple of new ones that are worth checking out: Sherlock Hemlock and the missing chicken salad sandwich and the two-headed monster reads a story.

5 Greg April 19, 2006 at 11:12

Wow. What a great post.

But…

Where’s “The Count?”

6 Amy Jo April 19, 2006 at 11:53

Poor Bert–I guess someone has to carry the burden of sensibility.

7 John April 19, 2006 at 13:00

Thank you, J.D.!!

8 joanne April 19, 2006 at 17:44

Were you able to find the kitten princess skit? I just remember white kittens. It would make my day if you could find it.

9 Joanne April 19, 2006 at 19:36

I have issues with Oscar. I used to have nightmares of Oscar growing up. He would drive around in a corvette looking for kids around Barlow Rd., and kill them. – of course I was the only one outside.
I think Gordon and Maria are still on the show – they look amazing – they’ve hardly aged.
Thanks for today’s entry.
Did you watch The Electric Company? Remember Letter Man?

10 Jeff April 19, 2006 at 20:06

Ernie and Cookie Monster are the best Sesame Street characters ever — that Bert is such a dork.

11 Jeff April 19, 2006 at 21:03

Noah and I just watched a bunch of the clips. I gave him the option to choose whichever character he wanted to watch — he only wanted to watch clips with Ernie and Cookie Monster… what a good kid! :-)

On a side note, I think ‘Ernie breaks the cookie jar’ has to be about my all-time favorite… it is just classic Ernie.

12 neilio April 19, 2006 at 22:48

Amazing stuff – thanks so much for sharing.

I know you’re probably not doing requests, but do you (or does anyone) have the “Fat cat sat on the mat!” beatnik skit? That’s possibly one of my favourites…

13 Lorraine April 20, 2006 at 00:05

This is the best post EVER. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

14 Amanda April 20, 2006 at 07:29

Cool!!! Thanks!

15 J.D. April 20, 2006 at 07:30

Joanne forwarded a link to the video she was looking for, Number Two Dollhouse; Jeff has requested that I track down the clip in which Ernie eats all of the pizza; and I’m keeping my eye out for the “fat cat sat on the mat” clip. Any other requests?

16 Steve April 20, 2006 at 08:49

Thanks so much for putting this up! I’m a new Dad and am flashing back to earlier days.
Did you find the Pigeon song that Ernie does? That is probably my favorite Sesame street song.

17 Dan Coulter April 20, 2006 at 09:36

[Editorial deadspace added by J.D. because URLs break the sidebar.] You forgot my favorite, Teeny Little Super Guy.

18 Greg April 20, 2006 at 11:13

After an exhaustive search — ;) — I found one clip of The Count counting apples with some Cookie Monster hijinx.

19 Ewan Grantham April 20, 2006 at 11:38

As far as requests go, I would LOVE to see the bit where Bert goes on a trip, and so the Count comes over to keep Ernie company. The Count begins to count sheep, and in the end Ernie comes out looking rather wild – one of the few times that Ernie ends up on the short end of the stick.

20 Joel April 20, 2006 at 11:44

Oh man, great entry. Those martians with the telephone? The ones that go “Yip yip yip, uh-huh uh-huh”? Simultaneously fascinating and disturbing to my young self. Still kind of are.

21 April April 20, 2006 at 18:06

Thanks for this! My daughter and I just watched a bunch. You must have put a lot of work into it!
Here is one more:
King of Eight

22 Munkey April 20, 2006 at 20:15

Great list! Has anyone got a clip of Cecile the Orange with a rubber band mouth that sang the opera Carmen ? It was a stop motion animation clip.

23 Mookie April 21, 2006 at 06:58

Being the father of a 17-month-old little girl, I watch Sesame Street every single day. It’s still the best educational program on television.

Thanks for compiling this great list!

24 Ulrike April 21, 2006 at 13:25

Mahna Mahna is actually a skit from The Muppet Show.

(Not that I mind.)

25 Dan Coulter April 21, 2006 at 15:09

Does anyone know where “Me and My Llama” can be found?

26 Andy April 21, 2006 at 21:56

How about “I remember!! I remember !! A loaf of bread, a container of milk, and a stick of butter…..” ???? That one always killed me………

27 Michael Niederman April 22, 2006 at 16:11

Any chance anyone can find “Roosevelt Franklin”? That’s a favorite of mine from the show.

28 swampking April 22, 2006 at 20:24

How about James Taylor singing the Jelly song….THAT’s a classic!!

29 ocB April 22, 2006 at 20:45

oh this was just great! thanks for sharing :)

30 dudedude April 23, 2006 at 09:08

“Go away if you have work things to get done”

dude: reading just that made me start to work down the list you provided, the least i can do now is to keep up with you…

cheers!

31 amy April 23, 2006 at 14:24

Mahna Mahna isn’t from Sesame Street. It’s from The Muppet Show.

32 James April 24, 2006 at 20:31

The “Yip Yip” Martians scene with the telephone has lived in my memory for so many years. I never thought I would see it again, but having seen it, it’s even better than I remember. Wow. Priceless.

33 Leonard April 25, 2006 at 06:50

Ok, this is truly awesome!!! Just one missing that I’m DYING to see again: Ernie singing “I Don’t Want To Live On The Moon”!!!! I’m a 26 y/o guy, and when I think about that song, I still get kinda misty eyed! My seven year old loves it now, and we have it on cd, but I’d LOVE to show her the video if anyone can find it! Thanks!!!

34 Courtney April 25, 2006 at 07:08

Oh, the memories!! I was watching Family Guy the other night, and they did a take-off on the pinball numbers song that absolutely killed me. I love it!

If anyone can find the “Gimme Five” song, where all the Sesame Street men, in tuxes, do their best Temptations impression singing about the number five. It’s bilingual!

I have to agree with Andy that the “Loaf of bread” cartoon was great! When I was a kid, I thought he was saying “A potato and milk” instead of a CONTAINER of milk. My sisters and I still joke about that.

35 Chris April 25, 2006 at 07:17

Talk about a trip down memory lane. That was a blast. Thanks.

36 April April 25, 2006 at 07:31

I’d also love to have the song ‘Me and my Llama’

37 kalisah April 25, 2006 at 08:25

I’m probably a little older than you, b/c I remember classic pop songs like “Up, up & Away” and “Yellow Submarine” but what about the muppets and our favorite geometric shape singing Huey Lewis’s “It’s Hip to be a Square”??

38 Corie April 25, 2006 at 10:24

What a great site, but what about Madeline Kahn doing “sing a song”? And where’s the count?

39 Brenda April 25, 2006 at 11:10

I know what we’re doing at our house this weekend! Can’t wait! Thank you! Thank you! THANK YOU!

Say, does any one remember Ernie singing “Everybody Wash”? I don’t remember seeing it on the show, but we had the song on a Sesame Street album (vinyl, of course).

There is a version of Ernie & Shawn Colvin singing “I don’t want to live on the moon” on the Elmopalooza video. Despite your feelings about the red guy, it’s not a bad video. After all, Jon Stewart hosts! Lots of guest artists. Chris Rock even has a bit. Praire Dawn (could be wrong on the name – not enough caffeine yet today) also is in the show. To my mind, she’s old school like Roosevelt Franklin.

Thanks again!

40 katherine April 25, 2006 at 12:37

Thanks, these are great. I thought it was “a potato OF milk” when I was little and I always thought what in the WORLD is a potato of milk?

41 jen April 25, 2006 at 12:55

I’ve been trying to find a clip of the “Milk” song. the only word in the song is “milk”, sung over and over again, while a baby cries for her bottle, as a milk truck driver is frantically trying to get to the house in time to quiet the screaming baby. drama at it’s finest, a true classic!!

42 Jenn April 25, 2006 at 13:05

Another request, what about the version of “Stop hey what’s that sound, everybody look what’s going down” as a song teaching you to look both ways before crossing the street?

And another fan of the yip-yip martians here!

43 Mark Savela April 25, 2006 at 16:49

Great list. I would love to see the loaf of bread.
Also, would be great to see Grover as the waiter, or the guy who goes into the music store to buy a trumpet and mimes it. The sales guy keeps bringing back the wrong instrument.
CLASSIC

44 Sara April 25, 2006 at 17:05

How about W for Wilhamena!

And I can’t find any information on a clip that said “My name is Fred, they call me Fred” and can’t remember the rest

45 Tamra April 25, 2006 at 18:33

You’re awesome! My kids (and husband) think I’m so lame because I’m still the biggest Sesame Street fan in the household. So what! I’ll keep watching and listening. At least my husband did buy the Muppet Show Season 1 DVD and we all enjoy it so much.

Thanks for the links!

Tamra (38), Williamsburg, VA

46 Patrick April 25, 2006 at 23:17

Thanks for all the great clips. Have been looking for the clip of the Orange that sings the “Habanera” from the opera Carmen. Was always one of my favorites.

47 Shana April 25, 2006 at 23:50

I’d love to see “Muppets Rhyme in School” (rose rhymes with nose…). Also, any “Teeny Little Super-Guy” clips would be appreciated. Thanks for putting this together!

48 Harry April 27, 2006 at 08:31

You have no idea how long I have waited to see such a list. These are all really good. I am missing a few favorites though. “Lower Case n standing on a hill”, the “D Song” with the dolls and dragons, the “O Song (o-o-o-o)”, “G-Grover, G-George”, “Everybody Sleeps”, and “Muppet News flash with the Three Pigs”. I could go on and on. I have a 9 year old and we will be taking a trip through time over the weekends until we have seen them all. I have the Muppets at home. These are just glorious icing on the cake. Thanks again. Keep them coming.

49 Chad April 27, 2006 at 18:25

Wow, so many great memories here…The Number 3 Painter, and the Six Dollar Man (that one scared the crap out of me as a kid–why??)
All the comments bring back great memories too…the Singing Loaf of Bread, the “Milk” song, and one of the best..W-W-W-Willamina!!!

Thanks for this awesome list.

50 Lisa April 27, 2006 at 19:07

Great post! It has been years since I’ve seen some of these. Is it my imagination, or is the Number 3 Painter the same guy who played the British neighbour on The Jeffersons?

51 Fish April 27, 2006 at 21:35

Awesome! Awesome! Bring back many fond memories of when I was a lad. And now that I am a dad myself, I love them all (old and new) all over again. But how can you not have the Goo-Goo Dolls with Elmo singing “Pride” (to the tune of Slide). I know Elmo rubs many people the wrong way and I can understand that- but he has his high points too.

52 SHARON BECKERLE April 28, 2006 at 18:59

wow what great and i really bad memory. I loved the show sesame street as a kid. I still have soem music (including for fans of rosevelt franklin) from sesame street as a kid. I’m putting soem music on my i pod so if anybody is interested i might be able to send soem music over to whomever is interested. the only bad thing about this site iss that fact that sammy the snake is on it.as a child i had mightmares about that Sssstupid,s sssilly ssssserphant. evn after ssseing that clip again issstill get nightaressss.
my personal favorite is the casey mcphee clip i still get cockles in my tummy seeing cookie monster eating that avalance. and that number three clip is great it was one of my favorites. and with almost forty years later sesame street is still going strong. may this show continue to live for at least one more generation of children Jim henson would want it that way.

53 Brad April 29, 2006 at 00:54

Thanks you for posting these and bringing back some awesome memories!!! I’m shocked & amazed to hear that someone else remembers the “Milk…MI-ILK…milk” skit with the baby crying and the milk truck. I was starting to think this was a figment of my early imagination! Also, does anyone remember the Native American (?) guy who could play this little twangy-sounding stringed instrument he put in his mouth? Or how about the type-writer that rolled around (in the void?) humming “doo doo doo, doo doo”? God bless Mr. Hooper!

54 Leah May 1, 2006 at 08:55

So fun! What about “a loaf of bread, a quart of milk, and a stick of butter”?

55 mikelietz May 1, 2006 at 09:29

No “Wet Paint”?

56 Greg May 1, 2006 at 21:11

i was wondering if you ever found a song parody of billy idol called “Rebel L?”

thanks

57 Julie May 2, 2006 at 21:16

The James Taylor song is “Jellyman Kelly”
If you want some more great stuff, check out the DVD “Sing Yourself Silly”

58 Jackie May 4, 2006 at 10:47

Desperately seeking the Opera Singing Orange clip! I’ve Googled my brains out to no avail! Not only was it my most favorite clip, but it was also the scariest.

Thanks!

59 He May 4, 2006 at 14:40

[This is editorial dead space added to compensate for a bug in this weblog’s sidebar.] The list of 25 great Sesame Street moments, some of which you guys have mentioned.

60 monkey11 May 4, 2006 at 19:45

oh joy, we crashed youtube. sigh.
theyre probably gonna yank them all, now that theyre rounded up and pointed out like this.

posts like this basically have to be kept amongst friends….

61 Katharine May 4, 2006 at 20:47

These are great! I actually saw a lot of them the other day when I did my own search for Bert singing the Bedtime (or was it Naptime?) song. I didn’t have any luck finding that one — anyone know where I can find it?

62 Mike May 5, 2006 at 13:06

Fantastic collection — thanks for putting this together.

Here’s one of my favorite old-school Sesame Street sketches, which features two Muppets talking about shapes:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bOfyAA7vcy0

“Do you know what a square is?”
“I know who a square is!”

63 Mark May 5, 2006 at 14:05

Sara, I remember that Fred song too..

“My name is Fred, they call me Fred, and every night when I get tired I go to… duh…”

And that seems to be all I can remember.

64 Matthew May 5, 2006 at 15:02

Does anyone remember a short animated piece that used to appear occasionally on Sesame Street? I swear it had Philip Glass music/singing (a la Koyaanisqatsi) as a soundtrack. On a black background it showed a wonderful geometric animation of circles being drawn within circles. Hypnotic.

I wonder if I’m crazy.

65 eleni May 6, 2006 at 07:14

Hi there!
Im writing a paper on the family and kinship and am using Sesame Street as an example of a show that promoted community in the 1970s.
I used to be a huge fan of the show as a child but now live in countries where it isnt broadcast anymore.
Your insight would be very helpful in terms of how the show has changed and if it still gives great importance to the whole family beyond blood ties (like in “Follow that Bird” Maria gives a speech in the end about how it doesnt matter if youre a grouch or a bird etc they all support each other on the street and they are ultimately his “real” family).
Anyway, I wont go into anymore detail. Let me know if you need me to clarify anthing. Thank you for your time :)

66 Devin McCullen May 6, 2006 at 22:08

Wow, I just killed an hour (and called my sister at 12:30 at night to tell her “Holy Cow you gotta check this out!”)

If you’re doing updates, here’s one to add:

http://youtube.com/watch?v=oY9gkIghK6U&search=sesame%20street%20tv%20retro%20cartoon%20animation

It’s the old lady who lived in a 9.

67 Andrew May 8, 2006 at 17:06

Could you maybe find WET PAINT (the how now brown cow video)?

68 Claire May 9, 2006 at 00:18

Oh my goodness. Thank you so much for posting all of these! In the past few days I have become completely obsessed with Sesame Street all over again! I’ve watched basically every single sketch that’s on YouTube… thank you so much! This is fantastic! I must admit that there are quite a few that I remember that I have yet to find, but I’ll keep looking as well. Thanks again!

69 citygirl May 9, 2006 at 10:51

Me and My Llama – I love this segment. It was always one of my favorites. Does anyone know or have the video or where I can find it? There are T-shirts and the lyrics but I can’t seem to find the video. Help!

70 PCandPetunia May 12, 2006 at 19:06

I love this site! I am so dissapointed in today’s Sesame Street. I want to make a video for my kids to watch of the “good old days”. How can I download these videos? Also, have you come accross the “There’s a Hole in The Bucket” skit? That was one of my favorites! Thanks!

71 Tara May 12, 2006 at 23:23

I LOVE THIS! I’ve been looking for clips like these forever! I wonder if anyone can find “Me and My Llama” where that little girl takes her Llama to the dentist in NYC. Or that one animated clip about the seasons, summer, autum, winter, and spring where the flowers are growing and stuff. Is there any way to download these clips to my Ipod?

72 kallie May 15, 2006 at 11:02

I am also looking for “Me and My Llama”. I would LOVE to see that one again!
Great site:) I am a nanny, and I watch a lot of sesame street videos, but you just can’t beat the originals. They are too great.

73 Saill May 15, 2006 at 11:09

When my daughter was about two or three she had a “friend” named Harry who only called her on the phone. Pretty much every time she saw a phone she would pretend it was ringing and pick it up and say “Oh, HellOOOH Harry!”

It was several months before I discovered that she had seen the awesome Sesame Street cartoon where the lady’s about to feed her cat when the phone rings and she picks it up and says “Oh, HellOOOH Harriet!”.

I would be very grateful to anyone who has that cartoon!

74 J.D. May 15, 2006 at 11:11

By populare request, I am going to attempt to track down “Me and My Lllama”. I don’t remember the skit, but many of you do…

75 Kel May 17, 2006 at 06:10

OMG!!!! I LOVE THIS!!!!

I’m 36 and never had any children, but I still find myself singing (in my head) stuff like “Lady Bug Picnic” and “1,2,3,FOUR,5,6,7,8,NINE,10,11,Tweellllve!

OK, I’m weird, I know :)

Anyway, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS SITE!!!!!

-Kel

P.S., any chance of finding anything with Mr. Looper? HOOPER!!

76 Jen May 18, 2006 at 06:09

GOD BLESS YOU!!!! Thank you SO much for making this site possible, it is by far, the BEST Sesame Street site I have yet seen. (and I am a HUUUUUUGE fan!) Most of these clips brought back fond, fond memories for me and I can’t thank you enough, how great it was to see these again!!! I have been searching for YEARS to find a site like this one. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!!

77 Kreel May 19, 2006 at 06:53

Neat site man! Most of these I forgot existed..lol
Any clips with ‘Forgetful Jones’ out there?

78 Kel May 19, 2006 at 07:39

I’ve thought of some more that I know I would love to see, and judging by the responses from the rest of the peep’s here, I bet they would too!!

Bert & Ernie – The Blackout
Bert & Ernie – Fishing (heeeer fishy FisHY FISHY!)
Bert & Ernie – Ernie Gets Scared at the Movies
The Golden “An”
W is the First Letter in the Name WILBUR
Milk, Milk, Milk
The Mailman Brings The Mail (all different places)
“Gonk” and “Geefol” (sp?)
The Counting Chef-Falling Down
Cookie Monster and the Moon
Anything with Snuffy!
And Finally, My ALLTIME FAVORITE – The Flower (classical song playing, showing parts of the flower) – OMG, I CRIED EVERYTIME I SAW THAT ONE :)

Thanks again!!!
-Kel

79 vl May 19, 2006 at 10:17

What about the orange guy in cartoon that blew bubbles up to seven and pops at the end

80 vl May 19, 2006 at 10:17

What about the orange guy in cartoon that blew bubbles up to seven and pops at the end

81 Rosey May 21, 2006 at 01:09

OH my god thankyou so much for putting these clips together, I had been talking about Bert and Ernie and meaning to hunt down a collection of their skits, and mimicing them to my boy, who found this site and directed me here. awesome collection!!!!

82 Angie May 21, 2006 at 18:34

FANTASTIC SITE!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m from Sydney, Australia, but we grew up with Sesame Street over here as well!

Was at a camp a couple of weeks ago where they had some Llama’s running around and it brought “Me and my Llama” flooding back to memory! Would LOVE to see that again if it can be found!

It was mentioned in an earlier post that “Me and my Llama” t shirts can be found … any hints where? (have searched with no luck …)

83 Jay May 24, 2006 at 09:44

I remember a video clip from Sesame Street back in the 70s of a bunch of animals and people scratching an itch and the main part of the song goes “Ooo Ah Ooo, I got an itch! Ooo Ah Ooo, I got an itch!” Anyone remember that, or where it can be found? I’d LOVE to see that again. My cousin and I would LAUGH SO HARD, it was our favorite segment of Sesame Street but I haven’t seen it since before I was 10 yrs old. I’m 36 now.

84 kuwoobie May 25, 2006 at 22:10

Hey, anyone remember that Sesame Street short with the guy with the up and down remote control that makes stuff go up and down and eventually topples London Bridge? I’d like to download that one.

85 Kelly May 26, 2006 at 09:29

After what seems like hours of scouring the internet, I cannot find a clip for the “Loaf of Bread, Quart (Container) of Milk, Stick of Butter” Cartoon. It is making me want to scratch my eyes out in frustration! Even an Mp3 or picture would help. How across the entire internet is this not readily available?! If anyone has any clue, could you give me one? I have exhausted all of my resources. Sesame Street might be the best thing ever. Thanks.

86 Kel May 26, 2006 at 12:07

OMG – check this out!!!! even more cool Sesame Stuff!!!

Oooops…..sorry :)

88 Michelle Llewellyn May 26, 2006 at 16:02

LOVE THE NET! Just when I was remebering all those retro Sesame Street shorts I loved as a child and wishing I could see some of them again just one more time, I find this. I text my brother “YOU GOTTA SEE THIS!”
A million THANK YOUS! THANK YOU THANK YOU
Now does anyone remember the Ernie and Bert sketch where Ernie wakes up, can’t find Bert and thinks martians have kidnapped him but Bert was just fixing oatmeal? “Oatmeal! Yip Yip Yip”

89 Ldean May 28, 2006 at 17:30

So fun! What about “a loaf of bread, a quart of milk, and a stick of butter”?

OMG! I remember that one! Thanks for the clips! I just had a lovely walk down memory lane.

I would also love to see the clip with the orange with the rubber band mouth singing Carmen. Another one I remember, and this is about 30 years ago, so pardon my fuzzy memory, is a stop-motion clip of lots of beans (like pinto beans) marching. That one was very strange, and didn’t have much dialogue, other than the sounds of the beans marching along in formation.

L :)

90 Amy May 30, 2006 at 19:55

Thank you, thank you, thank you! The number song has been stuck in my head for at least 25 years. I seem to remember one skit where the little Muppet guy was singing about finding the exit sign but it was there all along. Can you try to track that one down? I, still to this day, laugh out loud thinking about the exit guy.

91 Jenni June 2, 2006 at 13:17

I have a 2 year old that loves llamas. I hope someone can find “Me and My Llama”. It has always been my favorite. I sing it all the time and my older boys think I have lost my mind.
Good Luck!!!!

92 shawn adams June 6, 2006 at 21:57

wanted to know where to find the clip of the “loaf of bread, stick of butter, container of milk”. been looking for it everywhere,with no luck do you know where to find it? you page says it’s on here, but having trouble getting it to come up!! thanks for your help.

93 Katie June 8, 2006 at 13:50

WE have to see the geometric shape singing Huey Lewis’s “It’s Hip to be a Square”!!! Thats the best.

94 Kelly June 12, 2006 at 08:29

Matthew – re: your 5 May ’06 post – you are NOT crazy!! I too remember this geometric clip with the Philip Glass music and I have been driving myself crazy trying to find it for many years! Does anyone have any links??

95 Jeannie June 15, 2006 at 20:07

What happened to the Number Two Dollhouse video you have linked?? That was my all time favorite as I had those same dolls when I was little….I STILL have those dolls as a matter of fact. This site is awesome…the only drawback is there just aren’t enough clips to satisfy my trip down memory lane. Sesame Street is the best kids programming ever produced…EVER!! I watched it faithfully as a child and now get to watch it again with my own 3 kids. Is there any way to save these clips to our own systems?

96 Alex June 18, 2006 at 16:00

Cool clips.Do you think you can find “The Letter N”?The song sung by Nick Normal and the Nickmatics?

97 Kel June 20, 2006 at 09:57

Hey guys :)

I thought of some more……

Anything with Oscar’s worm – “Slimey”

Fire! Fire!….(big industrial fire), at the end they say “The Fire’s Out”, the fire’s out, the fire’s OUT!

Weird deep tone piano with running ostriges (that one used to SCARE ME!)

“B”….Butterfly!!…..BLEAH!!

Sinister Sam wants to know “Y”

I’m making soup today (mom & kid go to the store)

It’s eleven o’clock, time to wake up…it’s a lovely eleven morning

Counting in Spanish (kinda like a kaliedescope thing)

Construction alphabet – a guy singing in the lunch box

“Ug” & “Me-Wannum”……”Indians don’t talk like that”

…..I wish I knew how to post clips

-k

98 Kel June 20, 2006 at 10:02

I hope this works…..

99 CindyC June 21, 2006 at 16:09

Great page! I would love it if you have this one. I think it’s by the Oinker Sisters and it goes “I’ve Got You Down, on My Knee “B”. I saw it in 2001 when my son was first born, but I can’t find it anywhere on the internet!!!

Thanks!

100 Jeff June 22, 2006 at 22:49

Does anyone remember “I’m a dog, I’m a working dog, I’m a hard working dog” was about a border collie. Would love to see that againg. What happened to the Number 2 doll house link, my 3 year old cried today because I couldn’t pull it up.

101 Jeff June 25, 2006 at 20:02

Still looking for the Number 2 doll house link but I found this note about it

Cheryl Henson
Vice President of the Jim Henson Company

For my third birthday my father built a dollhouse that looked like the house where we lived—a 300-year-old farmhouse. I loved that gift because my father made it himself. It was cool having a house for our dolls that so closely resembled our own house. My sister Lisa and I played with our favorite dolls in that dollhouse. My father made a film for Sesame Street featuring the dollhouse and the number 2. The film included two little girls, two little dolls, and two little cats in a little dollhouse.
So Jim Henson built that little doll house too. What an amazing man.

102 Jacqui June 26, 2006 at 05:23

Hey! Whatever happened to Cowboy “X” and the Good people of Sniddler’s Gulch. Well, I guess they weren’t that clever anyway. (P.S. found this site at work today when – wait for it – I was abusing company internet facilities! In Australia we too miss and love the “Real” Sesame Street. The humour, the cheerful (sometimes depressing – think Lower Case N) ditties. Classic stuff. My poor kids don’t have any concept of how much laughter this show contained.

My very favorite is Grover as the waiter and the guy orders a hamburger and he’s in a hurry and Grover says: Round and tasty on a bun, pickles french fries yum, yum, yum; in a hurry to be fed, beady eyes and big blue head.

OMG, that’s my favorite! If anyone could find that, I will be eternally greatful!!!

I love this site…thank you so much for all these memories!

106 stephanie June 30, 2006 at 13:22

THANKYOU.

107 Mer June 30, 2006 at 18:16

I LOVE THIS!!! I also remember one of a baby being put to bed in his crib, then as soon as his mother closes the door, he rocks out. There’s a light show and he wails. I think it’s about how he cries. Anyone remember that one?

LOVE the Telephone Rock. That was one of my favorites.

108 Jeff July 1, 2006 at 08:11

My fiance and I remember a skit where a dimwitted guy at a piano sang “My Name Is Fred.” Does anyone know where we can find this?

I think it would be a fantastic part of my wedding speech. They remind me of the Geefle and the Gonk!!!!! I have searched everywhere!! Can somebody help within the month of July???

Thanks!!!!!

I have been avidly looking the classic sesame street clip of the “Milk” song. The only word in the song is “milk”, sung repeatedly.
Like Jenn, I too would love to see this clip

114 Liz July 5, 2006 at 21:41

I’d also like to see the clip about the border collie (Hard working dog).

Thanks for the memories. I was too old for Sesame Street when it came out in the 1960s, but enjoyed it with my daughters in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

We had a good laugh over the yip-yip martians. Priceless stuff!!!

115 Corey July 6, 2006 at 08:46

Ok i need EVERYONEs help. I am trying to find a short that i THINK was on sesame, but might have been on another PBS show.

Here it is: There was a Juice Glass… and it had a picture of a man on it… And he would come to life, jump out of the cubbard, and run around the kitchen… come to think of it, he might have been a salt or pepper shaker, not a glass… but I cant remember… if you know PLEAE PLEASE help me out…

119 Jeff July 7, 2006 at 00:20

http://www.live365.com there is a free muppet central link. Listened for 2 hours last night. A great Roosevelt Franklin song I had not heard in 30 years. great stuff.

Milk, where is it, was about the process of milk being made, a hustling milkman getting the milk to a crying baby.
Roosevelt Franklin, elementary school. Where is it? I can remember in the early days he was very prominent on the show, then nothing.
My name is Fred, they call me Fred, and every night when I get tired I go to, uhhh(soft voice Bed) yeah bed.
still waiting for a new link to the number 2 dollhouse, and where is hard working dog?

120 Jeff July 7, 2006 at 00:36

Did a google on Roosevelt Franklin and found this link. http://www.toughpigs.com/anthhipster02.htm
I knew I hadn’t killed that many brain cells. Seems like Noggin aired the episode. Hope someone grabbed it. Would love to see it.

121 Jeff July 7, 2006 at 21:39

Does anyone else remember Grover coming up to Kermit(usually sitting on a wall) and going “Heyyyyyy Froggieeeee Babbyyyyyy” followed by a smack on the back? I can’t find that.
What about(live action) You take a C that’s cuh and an A-T at, you put em’ all together and that spells Cat.
How about, “Has anybody seen my dog, has anybody seen my dog, he loved me so-o-o, why’d he ever have to go”

Does anyone know where I can view some of those clips with real people? I would love to see the one with the family making chicken soup, or the grandma making tortillas, or the rural mail route somewhere in the Blue Hills. I also was sort of obsessed with the Milk, Mi-illlk, Milk piece as well as the one with the guy making the stool for his daughter. They are bring me back to the less-urban, hippy-like Sesame Street days…

THANK YOU for the milk video!! I was just thinking about that the other day! Did you know they removed the Ernie-Bert-Cookie Jar video and the Loaf of Bread clip? I am devastated. Anyway, we also need to have on here the following:
Captain Vegetable
The movie about how they make crayons
Me and My Llama (my mom and I still sing that one to each other and have for years)
And one I’m surprised nobody mentioned–when Cookie Monster goes to the library and asks for cookies:
“We don’t HAVE any cookies! Just books!”
Punchline: “Then me want a BOOK about cookies…and a glass of milk.” Classic!

146 Jeff August 6, 2006 at 07:29

How crayons are made. I hope you enjoy it. Here it is:

After all those years, like an unforgottable friend :)
But i get the “This video has been removed by the user.” message when i click some links. Some clips have been removed from youtube ? Can someone put them again ?

And the most desired “Loaf of bread, a container of milk and a stick of butter” video, too. Youtube says “This video has been removed due to terms of use violation.” What is wrong with it ? Where can i find it now ?

154 working dog lover August 12, 2006 at 06:24

There is a solo nylon/classical guitar playing on the background

Does anybody know the title of the song played?
Any in fo is appreciated pls post the answer.

159 Barry August 17, 2006 at 22:23

One thing I’ve been hoping to find for a while is the Bert and Ernie sketch where the TV is broken and only shows the letter H, which they discover is because it’s all crammed with a bunch of things that start with H.

The TV just sits there making this rising and falling hum, with the letter H fading in and out, and this monotone, creepy voice just keeps repeating, “H…. H…. H….” Freaked me the heck out when I was five.

160 ktelqueen August 18, 2006 at 12:33

It’s the Largo from Vivaldi’s guitar concerto in D.

174 Phil September 7, 2006 at 11:05

Also, I’ve been looking for two pieces of incidental music from Sesame Street for some time — maybe someone can help me track them down. They’re both originally from live-action segments, shot on film and played between skits; I transcribed them from memory, arranged them, and played them in concert in 1998, with excerpts here:

http://www.rockoverlondon.com/mp3/sesame-suite.mp3

The first one was originally scored for an ensemble that included bassoon and glockenspiel, and I don’t remember what the original film was, besides that it was something in a natural setting.

The second, however, should be easier to find — it’s the one with a guy kayaking down a river, and from what I can recall, repeatedly flipping over…I bet many of you will recognize the tune (in the MP3 it starts about 2/3 of the way through).

Can anyone help?

175 JudytheCutie September 8, 2006 at 13:07

My fire department puts on a fire prevention show at all of the schools every October. The founder of the fire prevention program Chief Chris past away last month and we want to use that song for a tribute to him in this years show.

Does anyone remember the cartoon with the elephant that counts to four with its legs. One Two Three Kick! The elephant falls down and the trees and bushes crashes down around it. After everything falls down around it the announcer says “As you can see this is an elephant. Elephants have 4 legs 1….2….3….4!” I was wondering where I can get that cartoon

What ever happened to the song,
“You’ve got to put the ducky down, if you
want to play the saxophone” with Barbara Walters,
Henry Kissinger, etc…?

Would love you forever to see that one…

Animal vs. Buddy Rich

192 terry September 27, 2006 at 08:06

193 Mark October 1, 2006 at 18:02

To Matthew and Kelly Re: Philip Glass-esque music. I have been driving myself insane for years to find that track. The closest I ever came was the album “The Philip Glass Ensemble – Einstein on the Beach” or “Dance Nos. 1-5”. Check out http://www.philipglass.com/html/pages/glass-engine.html# and see if you can find it. There is a comment in the message boards of that site stating that the song has never been released. I refuse to believe that because it makes me sad.

I liked that one psychedelic number-counting segment with that cool pinball animation of the ball rolling through flippers and bumpers that symbolized whatever number was being displayed and that kickass punk guitar powering through the background as some woman simply sang 1 through 10. does anyone rember that one and does anyone have it? The short ended with the woman simply singing 123456789-10

I have been thinking about the “Look around, look around and see” song sung by a female folk vocalist who has such a beautiful voice. It may not be as popular as the other songs, but I’ve been thinking about it for about a year or so. What is about your 30’s that your childhood memories become more vivid?

I am trying to find out who the very pregnant female vocalist is in the song that goes “put a hat on it…” the band members look quite indie and there is “birdland” neon sign in the background of the pub setting.

249 Cheryl December 6, 2006 at 10:02

hey! i found out. Its a take on the hit song “Put a lid on it” (heheh not hat) by the band “Squirrel Nut Zippers”! Wow its great. Listen to it here on utube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZ7tyAqDW70. Though have still not got the Sesame Street version. Did’nt mention it before…but awesome site!

Has anyone seen either of the following clips…
1) A family on a farm shaves the wool off of a sheep and makes wool sweaters for them to wear.
2) A Chinese boy talks about his father who works at a Chinese Noodle factory, and shows clips of them making noodles.

252 The Face December 13, 2006 at 19:18

We haven’t been able to get it out of our heads. Do you know where I can find it?

I have vague and fond memories of a clip about catapillars and brown boots. One little catapillar can’t climb up a mushroom and the other comes along and tells him “Catapillar, don’t you know that Catapillars never, ever wear brown boots?” I loved it, does anyone have it?

265 Dog named Happy January 13, 2007 at 15:44

Anyone know of the Sesame Street animation about a boy with a dog named Happy. The boy gives the dog a treat and the dog is so happy he grabs his tummy and says mmm and even floats on air. The boy says that’s why we call him happy. I would love to show my kids so they know why their mommy grabs her tummy and says mmm mmm mmm if food is really good! LOL!

This site is WONDERFUL. I remember so many of the Sesame Street Clips, an important part of my life. I’m looking for the following:

A clip with boy and a cop on his horse. Boy visits cop at barracks, watches him groom his horse. Cop rides in the parade. Song may be titled “Lets see the Parade”.

My God, I loved this song soooo much. I taped it with a cassette tape close to TV, but would love to see the clip again.

Does anyone know where to find that trippy clip of the little boy who gets lost on his way home and the freaky guy appears from out of no-where with a yo yo and helps him remember all the things he passed. That might be a vague description, but man I loved that clip.

290 Steven February 1, 2007 at 17:58

Here is the Sesame Street YouTube skit of the little lost kid who gets advice from the yo-yo man about how the kid will be able to find his way home,

This was asked before but at the time no reply – any idea if theres a video of the rebel L song & sketch?
Based on billy idol’s rebel yell???

292 beatccr February 2, 2007 at 17:13

still hoping someone can find the oinker sisters or the chinese noodle clips.

also…anyone remember the clip about those alaskan kids putting their coats on before they go outside. something about “put on your (oomp ti loomps -ok that’s obviously not it) and you’ll stay warm and dryyy”. it was such a catchy song.

Hello all, I’m hoping someone can help me with this one. There was this short on Sesame Street that was just music playing, I couldn’t say what the song way, but all the I remember during the song was that there were dolls moving in stop-motion animation and also at some point there was the Voyager spacecraft (at least I think it was Voyager, it could be some other satellite) performing a spin. That’s really all that I remember about it, hopefully someone remembers it and can at least point me in the right direction. Thanks in advance!

295 Ron February 5, 2007 at 11:37

I really need to see the Flowers segment with the Vivaldi guitar concerto. There is a link above that actually goes to a saxophone making segment.

298 Jessica February 6, 2007 at 10:54

I’m looking for an Ernie and Bert song called “That’s What Friends Are For.” You know, Bert says “Ernie, I’m tired, I’m really tired.” and Ernie goes into a song about how he doesn’t mind that Bert is tired because that’s what friends are for.
I’m looking for the video if someone has that, thanks in advance!

“My name is Fred, They call me fred, when I get tired, I go to sleep upon my … duh!

My name is Fred, they call me Fred, when I go outside, I put my hat upon my … duh!

My name is duh!”

I want to show my kids this!

301 Xerxes February 7, 2007 at 09:24

One of my favorite skits is the groom trying to cross the street but the street sign “don’t walk” stops him. Does anyone knows where I can see it again?

302 christine February 10, 2007 at 23:49

“solomon grundy takes a bath on sunday”

304 Roy February 13, 2007 at 03:52

A bunch of ‘cajun’ musicians singing in French and children playing in a 1980’s (?) episode of Sesame Street. Looked as though they were from the deep south. A catchy tune and clip that was an interspace between the Sesame Street characters. Anybody know the title and if it is available? Anybody know to what I’m referring?

305 Mike February 16, 2007 at 00:33

Viacom has taken all of this down, evidentially. Isn’t this PBS stuff? How can they do that?

306 Tiffany February 16, 2007 at 20:42

I’m looking for the one where the frog is swimming. It might be called la-di-da-di-o and it goes “my froggy goes a kicking on his daily swim…”

307 Lisa J. February 17, 2007 at 18:34

I am also interested in the Cajun music clip…I remember it vaguely from the 1980’s when my oldest was little. It was very haunting! Any help would be appreciated.

308 Joyce Buckley February 20, 2007 at 22:47

Hello

would you by any chance have the sesame episode when Tracy Chapman made a appearance?

Thanks

309 Gina February 22, 2007 at 17:47

Yet Another request for the cajun music clip! Or at the very least who was it?

310 elliot February 25, 2007 at 15:24

seconding the request for the monsterpiece theater ‘taming of the shoe’ segment – not on youtube, but if anyone has any pointers, i’d love to find it!

311 Jay February 26, 2007 at 18:25

I Absolutely LOVED That Vintage Claymation Clip Of Some Kids On The Porch Of An Old Shack In The Rain. The Clip Is About Rain Or Something. The Sun Comes Up Later On In The Sketch & The Clay Kids Start Dancing & Rejoicing. I Think It’s Filled With Happy Harmonica Add~Ins. But I’d Love To Know If Anyone Out There Knows This Clip I’m Talkin’ About, … And How I Can See It On YouTube If It’s Available. I’d Appreciate ANYTHING That Any Of You Brain~Busters Could Do.
… A Concerned Fan.

312 Ren March 1, 2007 at 05:46

hey, i was wondering, would anybody be able to find or post a clip of cecile (i think that’s how her name is spelt)? She is a clay ball that rolls around in a blue background and sings. It would be appreciated, thank you!

313 tigersoul March 5, 2007 at 21:50

Desperately seeking the Cajun video – Any info or a link would be a Godsend. Thank you so much for any that can help or share the joy this amazing song brings, even years later!

Has anyone seen a clip of the ‘surprise’ musical number? I laughed myself stupid when I saw it as a kid. Also, I’m looking for a segment where Oscar is asking 3 kids to demonstrate their ‘grouch-faces’, I think I might know someone in it!

318 Laura March 11, 2007 at 21:33

What about Mary had a bicycle, bicycle bicycle…red red red, red as fire, flat flat flat, flat flat tire…? I did read all of the other posts, but now I am quite bleary eyed- sorry if I missed it. Sighs of relief to have found the circles with Phillip Glass music- no one else remembered it so I thought perhaps I made it up! Nice to see these clips available- thanks for putting it together. Soothes the need to kick it old school… Don Music *sighs and grins* I am a music teacher and should show it to my students…

319 Safina March 12, 2007 at 23:09

Is there anyway that you can get the Monsterpiece theater, Waiting for elmo..(Waiting for Godot) I found it in Dutch, on you tube, but I want it in English.. Pleas let me know if you can… thanx

320 Carmen March 17, 2007 at 09:49

Hi everyone! Whoa, had no idea there were others who had snips of sesame street permanently lodged in their psyches! What about “I’m a polar, I’m a polar, I’m a POLAR BEAR!” Or the clip of the penguins talking about “5”, or Seals, seals seals. How about “We all live in a Capital I” and “Lower case N”.

Thanks to all.

321 Lori March 21, 2007 at 14:19

This is incredible! I was watching Sesame Street with my daughter last night and thought how cool it would be to see the vintage episodes that I grew up with! Is there any chance there will be a DVD set release going back to the first episodes?

322 Jessica March 21, 2007 at 20:39

Looking for “I’m a dog, I’m a working dog, I’m a hard working dog” video clip. Video of a border collie on a farm–heaven to a city kid like me! Saw that it was posted in an earlier thread; but the link has now expired.

327 adrian March 30, 2007 at 10:52

Does anyone remember a clip singing through the alphabet, the vision was cartoon drawing of sort of faries or cherubs and insects opening flowers ect with the letters in them. The music is a womans voice over what sounds like ‘medieval’ or troubidor music. Love a link to that.

330 April April 5, 2007 at 10:51

OMG! I just relived childhood.

However, I must be an oddball here, because the two skits that I remember and would LOVE to see, I don’t think have been mentioned. Neither one was on very often, but there was one with a crying baby in her room and she was singing about crying to disco music with lights flashing around her room. Then her parents would walk in and all would be still and quiet. Anyone remember that one?

The other one, I barely remember, but would LOVE to see it again… it had a muppet talking in a whispery kind of voice saying “I have a plan… I’m gonna take it to Stan… in the van… etc”

Anyone know where to find these?

331 Steven April 6, 2007 at 20:26

334 Lindsay April 7, 2007 at 08:50

Hi everyone, wow if I can’t find the answer here, it looks like a lost cause. My children and I saw an old sesame street months ago that had a skit where a muppet family was doing household chores together, like cleaning and fixing things and singing a very catchy tune. I think it said something like “when we work together, it soon gets done”. My kids loved it and I can’t get it out of my head. Can anyone identify it or tell me where I can find it?

Anyone remember a 1970’s short film (I think it was on Sasame Steet) about a afro american kid who lives in a NY apt. His mom gives him a corner in their tiny little apt next to a window to call his own? I saw it at in elementary school (Los Angeles Unified School Dist) as a kid.

340 Raven April 18, 2007 at 18:25

This is probably a long shot but…

Does anyone remember the Native American Musicians that played on SS?
I can recall the video VIVIDLY but can’t remember who played it.
The song was NA music with wolves howling throughout the entire song. The wolves were VERY sad sounding. I almost cried.
I have been searching for the band and song for years but have had no luck at all

PLEASE HELP MEEEEEEE

Thanx

“I cry in the morning, I cry at night, I cry, cry cry when I’m all uptight….Oh my, how I can cry When I wanna stay warm and fed and dry I Cry….WAHHHHH!!!

347 Mika April 29, 2007 at 20:40

What a great site!
I have been looking for this one song for quite
a while. Anyone else remember a song about a mother being a best friend? All I recall is : “… she sings me to sleep. When I am grown and have kids of my own, I’ll say the best friend I’ve known, has been my mother”

I think it ended with a mom and her daughter on a swing at the park.

Also, anyone remember “j’taime means I love you… just by saying j’taime, j’taime in french it means I love you”

348 tigersoul April 30, 2007 at 22:02

Cajun Video – ‘Bayou Pon Pon Special’ might be the name of the tune. I was checking another site and a lot of people are searching for it. Anyone who happens to have a collection of old sesame street videos, can you see if you happen to have this one? It used to play a lot in the early to mid 80’s. Cajun musicians playing a song while a picnic was going on, shots of the bayou – Very catchy song. Bless you guys and gals ~*~

349 Mike Caron May 8, 2007 at 19:07

I’ve been looking for months for a film clip showing a mother hamster (or guinea pig?) with
her young in a box, and a man’s voiceover singing this song (slowly):

New life coming
Soft and glowing
Time goes by,
And time means everything.

Days fly by,
But who ever notices?
And time keeps taking time away.
Still everyday.
New life coming, in the good Lord’s own sweet way.

Does anyone remember this one?

366 Josel Ignacio June 5, 2007 at 02:14

Dear Sandy,

Reur post on 04 December 2006 (01:24 PM), believe me, you’re not alone. That song has been playing in my head since the first time I heard it (ditto for my two brothers), and to date (i’m 38) we haven’t found any recording, or youtube posting, of it. In fact, I chanced upon this blog trying to google the “look around” song and hoping that it turns up somewhere in cyberspace. It’s the most overlooked piece of music on sesame street. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it’s on the Sesame Street “old school” DVD, which I just ordered from Amazon. If it ain’t there I’ll just have to write and beg the producers for it. Best of luck to us both.

367 chriscatz June 5, 2007 at 17:08

My favorite was “It’s a long hard climb but I’m gonna get there” with the tree frog climbing the tree, that’s the clip I remember most that I can’t find anywhere. If anyone happens to have that I’d very much like to see that again!

368 Shannon June 7, 2007 at 21:27

This might be a long shot, but I’m looking for a clip from this season of Sesame Street – I don’t remember which episode it’s in, but it’s a 10 minute clip at the beginning of the episode called “Cookie’s World.” It’s cookie monster doing his version of Elmo’s World. Thanks to anyone who can find it for me!

369 kate June 8, 2007 at 21:46

ok, so i’ve found a whole bunch of sesame street clips on youtube, and seeing “wet paint” again, i’m thinking that the song sounds very familiar… i know sesame street was very keen with their parodies, but i cannot for the life of me figure out what song that one is based off of!! any help would be awesome!! =)

Wow, this site is fantastic! I’m still looking for a few songs and I’m hoping someone out there can help. These songs were played over a montage of clips that Sesame Street had put together and produced. The most important one I’m looking for was called “Family” or something like that, but the clips were not of muppets or Sesame Street characters, but just video that used and shot put to song. Can someone point me in the right direction of getting ahold of this video or song? HELP!

The most important one I’m looking for was called “Family” or something like that, but the clips were not of muppets or Sesame Street characters, but just video that used and shot put to song. Can someone point me in the right direction of getting ahold of this video or song? HELP!

Marky, I remember it, too, but can’t think of what or where to get it. It’s the one that had “pride of Lions” and a “herd of hyenas.” Sorry can’t help, but hope you find it!

Jeff, I haven’t been able to view it yet, but if the “youtube” video of “We’re a family” is what I’m looking for – I love you (in a strictly asexual kind of way)! I’ve been looking for that song for over 30 years! I can’t wait to see it. I’ve got a nationally-distributed TV show and I’d like to thank you on the air. Thanks a million!

386 Marky June 30, 2007 at 07:13

Yep, Jeff – that was it! I owe you big time! Let me know if it’s alright to mention your name on my nationally award-winning TV show! Thanks a million!

387 Marky June 30, 2007 at 18:13

Okay, I’m askin’ once again! I’m hoping someone can come through for me (Jeff, you out there, buddy)? :)

I didn’t see this in the Muppet videos above. It’s by far, without question, the best and funniest Muppet song ever! While “Telephone Rock” is a classic, one of the most melodic and funny songs by the Muppets, without any question at all, (including “I’m Between”, a true classic not mentioned in an above videos), is a little all-time best called “Listen To The Bells.” Pleeeze – someone guide me to a link that shows America and me the absolute funniest Muppet video ever made!!!

388 Marky June 30, 2007 at 18:22

Am I crazy? The 2nd best Muppet video of all-time isn’t “telephone Rock” OR “Count It Highter” (two incredible classics)! Not even the “Oh, I’m Between” song that should be an above link like everything else. No, the second best Muppet video ever made (remember, the first, and by FAR, is “Listen To The Bells”) would be a little ditty called “Danger.” Come on, J.D. – what’s a Sesame Street video collection without these amazing classics?!!!

389 J.D. June 30, 2007 at 18:24

It’s been a long time since I posted to my own thread, but I’ve got an answer for you, Marky: Listen to the Bells

390 J.D. June 30, 2007 at 18:28

There are several Seasame Street clips called Danger. Is this the one you’re after?

391 Marky June 30, 2007 at 19:05

You are simply amazing, J.D.! I’m glad you broke your “long time since you posted to your own thread” string on this one, because you did it again! YES – this is indeed the video I was referring! Thanks SOOO much again, J.D. – you have simply made us “grown up kids” dreams come true!!!

395 Marky June 30, 2007 at 20:27

J.D., you nailed it again! I know there were several Seasame Street clips called “Danger,” but this is EXACTLY the one I was after! I remember a few other versions, but they were a bit later, if I’m not mistaken. This earlier, and quite clearly more classic version, was the exact one I was looking for! Everyone has done great for me and has fulfilled every song I’ve been looking for out there and it’s been really amazing, but no one – even you, J.D. – has come close to touching the fact about knowing about my own, little-known song “I’m Between” with the muppet in between the two monsters? Unbelievable funny, but not viewed in years! Any help on this one?

402 Jeff July 1, 2007 at 22:22

Found this today, hope it hasn’t been posted before. It’s Cookie and a funny looking Herry Monster singing about up and down. Funny, I had this on a record as a child and when I saw this it came back plain as day.

Jeff, yes, those clips are true classics! I remember them as a kid and still apply them to everyday life! The “Up and Down” and “Slow and Fast” clips are the type of songs that are truly the essense of Sesame Street enjoyment! Any luck finding the “I’m Between” skit and song?

409 John July 2, 2007 at 06:24

Jeff,

The Slow and Fast muppet brothers video was exactly the one I remembered, but the “Up and Down” song was not the one I’m thinking of. Isn’t there another “Up and Down” song video clip that has the I remember? They also mention “back and Forth” and “To and Fro” in the song. Not much help, huh? It’s really a fun and rythmic song!

412 Marky July 4, 2007 at 09:58

416 Marky July 4, 2007 at 21:41

Thanks for the comments, Bob.

I have gone through every post on this site. Everyone seems to be in the same boat, and that makes us big kids feel normal. Having read each one, though, it seems clear two people need to be thanked (and by everyone) the most. Other than J.D. who, without this, we wouldn’t even be here listening to and watching our dreams at all, Jeff and Steven needs the most gratitude. Finding all of the links you have is idescribable. I think I can speak for all of us when I say “thank you” so much!

Okay, now having said that, enough of the mushy stuff and let me ask: Where can I possibly find the “I’m Between” video and song? Doesn’t *anyone* know what I’m talking about?!!!

418 Ray McIntire July 6, 2007 at 11:20

I’m looking for a Sesame Street song….I don’t know if there is a name for the song or not. I think it’s Oscar in the middle with two other characters, one on either side of Oscar….it goes like this:

Oscar: Ma-na-ma-na
Others: to-do-do-do-do
Oscar: Ma-na-ma-na
Others: to-do-do-do
Oscar: Ma-na-ma-na
Others: to-do-do-do-do, do-do-do, do-do-do, do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do

Then Oscar goes and does his own thing with some improvisation, and the others just look at him, then he sees that he’s just supposed to do his part only…… ma-na-ma-na…

This is just hillarious. We were singing this at work the other day.

If anyone knows where to find this, I’d really appreciate it.

Thanks,

419 Marky July 6, 2007 at 13:57

I know that one, Ray. Although you have too many “do-do-do’s” in your last verse. I don’t know the name of it, though – Jeff might have a link for you.

420 Steven July 6, 2007 at 17:58
421 Steven July 6, 2007 at 18:11

Ray:

The name of the Sesame Street song you are looking for is called “Mahna Mahna.” Oscar is not in that skit or song. It’s just a guy muppet (named Mahna Mahna) in between two other girl muppets singing a song with those two other girl muppets. Here is the direct Sesame Street YouTube video clip song of “Mahna Mahna” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDOFj9yjO7Y

(Mahna Mahna is the muppet who came before Bip Bipadotta. Once Bip Bipadotta came on Sesame Street, Mahna Mahna was taken off but, both muppets are voiced by the same muppeteer).

Jeff and Steven, you guys are amazing!

Simply incredible! How do you know all that stuff? Both of you guys are truly Sesame Street geniuses! The information you provide is invaluable and the song videos and clips are priceless! Do you know each other? Anyway, thanks so much to both of you for the links. They mean a lot and you guys are truly the Gurus of this show!

As impressed as I am by all the clips and information you locate and provide for everyone (both of you), I’m surprised, Jeff, that you don’t know the I’m Between song. No question – it was definitely a Sesame Street song with muppets. I truly DO appreciate you acknowledging the song, Jeff, as I was thinking for awhile no one out there had a clue!

Both you guys have come up with far more obscure trivia, information, and links than this song. That’s why I’m a little bewildered why you haven’t heard of, or even been able to locate it.

At the risk of butchering the lyrics, I’ll do my best. Maybe Jeff or Steve can do their magic, or soemone else can possibly help, given these really lame lyrics I’m about to provide. However, seeing Ray sound out the “Mahna Mahna” lyrics above, I am a bit more inspired to embarrass myself with the I’m Between lyrics. The video had a muppet guy (no one we really know) in between two monster muppets (again no muppets we know – maybe an early Harry monster version). Remember, this was many years ago, and I’m probably way off:

Oh I’m Between, I’m Between
And I feeling just like a sardine
Oh I’m Between, if you know what I mean
I get a funny feeling
When I’m Between
First this one tries to push me this way
And this one pushes that
They both push me together
Until I come out splat
Oh I’m Between, I’m Between

Thanks for any help that you give!

434 Marky July 8, 2007 at 16:04

Here’s better lyrics for it. Told you I was way off! I’m still looking for the video:

Oh I’m between – I’m between
And I’m feeling just like a sardine
‘Cause I’m between – You know what I mean
It’s not a happy scene To be between

Oh there’s a monster on my left side
Green monster: (turning) Ho ha ha!
Man: A monster on my right
Blue: (turning) Ha ha ha!
They’re there from early morning
Both monsters: (turning) Ha ha ha!
To very late at night – Oh I’m between
Like a string bean
It’s the saddest thing that I have ever seen
To be between, To be between
First this one tries to push me this way
And that one pushes that
They both keep right on squeezing
Until I come out flat
Oh I’m between – Know what I mean
And it’s easier by far being green
Than being between, Than being betwee-ee-een!

THANKS for providing me a very much needed and cathartic stroll down memory lane. The only thing missing for me is the skit between Henry and Liza…

THERE’S A HOLE IN MY BUCKET DEAR LIZA, DEAR LIZA

After Henry asks her in what should he carry water, she gets really frustrated.
I love the part where she turns to the screen, looks directly at us, sighs and says,

“Can you believe it?”

I have been searching for a clip for months.

HELP!!!

438 Steven July 10, 2007 at 18:02

The episode that the Sesame Street people realized that Big Bird was telling the truth about Snuffleupagus was episode 2096 in the year 1985.

Hey people,

Thanks to all people who added the videos up there, that was a great journey to childhood but I really miss the Between Song (a.k.a. “I’m between”).

I think there is no chance to find it out, right?

447 Mark July 25, 2007 at 13:09

I don’t think so, Kerry. These guys on this site are terrific in finding all these Sesame songs and clips, but no one seems to have remembered it. I’m glad I found someone who did!

448 Mad Mike July 25, 2007 at 13:37

Hi guys! Great job on the site! Keep up the hard work :) I was wondering if you remember 2 fav clips of mine. I’m old enought to remember when they were new. First was a long haired blonde woman doing a gymnastics routine on the uneven bars. I don’t remember the context though. The other was a group of kids and the Letter J they were learning how to make a jumpsuit. At the end they were jumping on a trampoline. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Actually the first Mahna Mahna is originally from sesame street. They did a remake of it on the Muppet show later.

Here is the link to the ORIGINAL “Mahna Mahna” from EARLY sesame street (circa 1969 0r 1970? maybe?).

Thanks for these. When I was a kid, I remember a counting series that went up to ten that was from the first years (Late 60’s) that was psychadelic in style (Not the pinball type) but it had monsters and animals and ended with “One, Two, Three, Four Five. . .. Six Senven Eight NIIIIINE, ten.” you know the one.

And then there were some letter cartoons that I just loved. My favorite was the Letter “i” and word “impolite” (“yes, I guess this ‘i’ does look like a one with a ball on top” “Not something Like, Exactly like, pin head! You have the mind of a flea!”

any chance you could find them??

461 Mark August 9, 2007 at 11:04

The letter “i” was a classic, David. I’m still trying to find my favorite about the letter N. it was “The Letter N” sung by Nick Normal and the Nickmatics. Super funny and a great song!

462 Jeff August 9, 2007 at 12:33

David, is this what you are looking for?

Jeff, you’re finding them all – good job! Found anything yet on the “I’m Between” song?

471 Jeff August 15, 2007 at 08:02

I cannot find anything on the “I’m between” song but I’ll continue to look. Also, the “up and down” song I linked to a couple of weeks back has been taken off. Did anyone grab that one. My two daughters cry every day because they can’t watch it anymore.

472 kimchick August 18, 2007 at 17:32

Has anyone found the video for the “Hole in the Bucket (…dear Liza, dear Liza)..”?? My mom and I just told my kids about the skit, taught them the lyrics and they thought it was hysterical at the end. Pity we can’t see the actual clip. Anyone??? Much appreciated if located!!!

473 Mark August 19, 2007 at 10:22

Thanks Jeff for your continued search for my “I’m Between” song. I’ve tried, but haven’t been able to locate the “up and down” song yet that you linked to a couple of weeks back. I’ll keep searching, though. As helpful as you’ve been to all of us, we certainly don’t want your two daughters to keep crying every day!

474 Erin August 20, 2007 at 19:25

Sara,
I have looked everywhere about that my name is fred cartoon, it went “my name is fred, they call me ed, and every time I go to bed I hit my head” I didn’t think I just imagined htat existed!

475 Sarah August 22, 2007 at 18:12

I’ve been trying really hard to find the little sesame street cartoon where a couple of kids voices find the hiding birds. For instance, one pops out of the clouds and one is hiding behind a bush and stuff like that. It’s a still image and then when one of the kids points out a bird, the bird becomes animated. My only reason is that i was one of the kids talking in the cartoon. I did the recording when i was 5. I’m 17 now. I would just love to see it again for memory’s sake. Do you think you could help me?

476 Shannon August 23, 2007 at 12:14

Please help me find a link to the video for “Caterpillars Never, Ever, Ever, Wear Brown Boots” – it is one I have been looking for and would love to show my kids!!

477 Steven August 23, 2007 at 14:57

Shannon:

Regarding the YouTube video clip of Caterpillars Never Wear Brown Boots, I don’t remember a skit on Sesame Street with a caterpillar wearing brown boots. However, I did find a Sesame Street YouTube video clip of Simple Simon with three animals who had a different body part that belonged to one of the animals, (one of the animals was a sheep who was wearing brown boots). At the end of the skit, Simple Simon said to the sheep “Sheep don’t wear boots” if that was the video clip skit you were looking for. If so, here is the Sesame Street YouTube video clip of Simple Simon with the animals telling the sheep at the end that “Sheep don’t wear boots”

I am looking for TWO clips…The one with Henry and Liza singing “There’s a hole in the bucket” and the one with Grover I think, called “Near, Far” where he’s running back and forth, sooo funny! You are all right…they don’t make ’em like they used to!!! I have Mahna Mahna as a ringtone!!!!!!

479 Jeff September 4, 2007 at 15:14

http://youtube.com/watch?v=KCqWFD9-oM0
Is this the Grover “near-far” skit you were looking for. It’s one of mine and my daughter’s favorites. At one time the Hole in the bucket was on youtube, but that’s been a year or so ago and i don’t have a copy.

480 Sarah September 4, 2007 at 22:03

482 Bob L September 4, 2007 at 22:44

Anybody got the video of Paul Simon and Harper singing BINGO? Circa 1973? I believe. The clip also showed how records are made during the song…I can’t find that anywhere, not youtube, not anywhere on the net. A ceratin Paul Simon website supposedly has it on their “Excessive Fans” database which is apparently impossible to get into! Thanks for any responses to this.

I’m sorry i wasn’t any more desriptive. I have no idea what the title of that clip is.

Please help me find a link to the video (or to the song lyrics) for “Caterpillars Never, Ever, Ever, Wear Brown Boots” If that was already posted here I can’t find.

488 Steven September 9, 2007 at 17:49

CM:

I was unable to find a Sesame Street YouTube video clip on Caterpillars Never, Ever, Ever, Wear Brown Boots. However, I found another Sesame Street YouTube video clip that’s almost the same thing what you’re looking for with Simple Simon with three animals (a duck, a sheep, and a snake). At the end of the skit, Simple Simon said to the sheep “Sheep Don’t Wear Boots” if this was the video clip you were trying to find. Here is the Sesame Street YouTube video clip I found with Simple Simon saying at the end to the sheep “Sheep Don’t Wear Boots”

Henry and Liza! Henry and Liza! :) I sing it for my son while brushing his teeth and I’d LOVE to show him the clip. I remember, over 30 years ago, laughing hysterically at this one – but only saw it once or twice. I remembered most the words. I hope someone has it! Thanks!

“There’s a hole in the bucket, Dear Liza…”

490 Steven September 10, 2007 at 18:13

Jill:

Henry: With what should I fix it, dear Liza, dear Liza, With what should I fix it, dear Liza, with what?

Liza: With straw, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry, With straw, dear Henry, dear Henry, with straw.

Henry: But the straw is too long, dear Liza, dear Liza, The straw is too long, dear Liza, too long.

Liza: So cut it dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry, So cut it dear Henry, dear Henry, cut it!

Henry: With what should I cut it, dear Liza, dear Liza, With what should I cut it, dear Liza, with what?

Liza: Use the hatchet, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry, Use the hatchet, dear Henry, the hatchet.

Henry: But the hatchet’s too dull, dear Liza, dear Liza, The hatchet’s too dull, dear Liza, too dull.

Liza: So, sharpen it, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry, So sharpen it dear Henry, dear Henry, sharpen it!

Henry: With what should I sharpen it, dear Liza, dear Liza, With what should I sharpen, dear Liza, with what?

Liza: Use the stone, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry, Use the stone, dear Henry, dear Henry, THE STONE!!!!

Henry: But the stone is too dry, dear Liza, dear Liza, The stone is too dry, dear Liza, too dry.

Liza: So wet it, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry, So wet it dear Henry, dear Henry, WET IT!

Henry: With what should I wet it, dear Liza, dear Liza, With what should I wet it, dear Liza, with what?

Liza: With water, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry, With water, dear Henry, dear Henry, WATER!!!!!

Henry: With what should I carry it, dear Liza, dear Liza, With what should I carry it dear Liza, with what?

Liza: Use the bucket dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry, Use the bucket, dear Henry, dear Henry, the bucket!

Henry: Uh, Liza???? There’s a hole in the bucket, dear Liza, dear Liza, There’s a hole in the bucket, dear Liza, a hole.

Read online that the French Bayou pon pon song was probably sung by Dewey Balfa and his band. After listening to some of his songs on Itunes, and seeing his picture, I think he’s the guy. I couldn’t find a clip of him preforming that song however.

I remember the “Fred” cartoon from when I was really young. I liked it so much that I still remember some of the words…

“My name is Fred, they call me Fred. And every night before I go to bed I eat a piece of…a piece of…(then some guy pops out and says…)Bread!” (there were more lyrics but I forget them)

I think Fred was a tall cowboy with a mustache, that maybe had a guitar(???), and his friend that reminded him of all the words was shorter (I think). The theme of it was words that rhyme with Fred and something about being forgetful.

It had been so long since I’d seen it and there’s no trace of it online, that I thought I had dreamed it or something. It is also a possibility that it was on Electric Company not Sesame Street, but I think it was Sesame Street.

I want to see it again so bad!!!!

2- The “Exit” song with the figures on the gym wall dancing.

3- The Crossing Zone, a black and white parody of “The twilight zone” with Gordon and a girl who are about to cross the street, but Gorden explains she has to wait for the Walk light.

4- Ok i know everyone has posted things about the kids at the playground singing that song, but I remember another clip with kids playing at a playground, but there might of not even been singing, but it started with a melody and kids running and playing, etc. Saw in back in early 1990s.

5- The songs Maria sang about Open and Closed in spanish inside the house.

2 skits I would LOVE:
1) The 4 Chinese dragons – they were outlined at the end and there was a big brass gong
2) The country mouse and the city mouse

Why I want to see these things that scared the bejeezus out of me, I have no idea!

Does anyone know where I can find the Alpa quest video/ or song..

(Got to a b c decide, where’s the door I haven’t tried, a b c d east or west, Going on an alpha quest)

I’ve spent literally years searching for it, does it seem less significant than the others?

I always loved when they would show thoes. :-(

I am ALSO looking for a video clip of the “Hole in the Bucket” skit. The lyrics are everywhere, but no video. That is my most favorite of all times. I have a 5 yr old, 4 yr old, and 17 month old twins, and am desperate for this clip. Even if anyone knows of a video it is on, I would purchase it. It doesn’t need to be viewable online. PLEASE AND THANK YOU

Hi:

Does anyone have the following video clips from Sesame Street from the 1970’s? All are live-action films.

1. ‘Fred, get me a 20’ – A man (Joe Raposo) gets sent on a mission to find a 20. He finds the numbers 11 through 19 along the way, then runs into a gorilla (and the 20) in the end.

2. Gymnast – one clip featuring a gymnast (blonde hair, black leotard) is on YouTube, namely ‘between.’ Does anyone have the other five (‘around, ”beginning/end,’ ‘close to/away from,’ ‘over/under,’ and ‘slow’)?

3. ‘Beginning/end’ – four stop-motion films that feature a barber giving a customer a haircut, a man painting a picture, a man eating a hot dog, and kids waiting in line.

4. Scuba diver – two clips featuring a scuba diver, one where he finds five shells underwater, counts them on the shore, and is surprised by a crab, and one where kids say ‘Boo!’ and he swims ‘away from’ them.

5. Post office – a hip song about the post ofice and mail delivery, where one line goes ‘…to the post office where it will stay, for just one day…’

Thanks in advance to anyone who might have (or know of) the above.

Here’s my SS favorite: “B Is For Bubble”(1969 original):

This is from SesameStreet.org, the show’s official website–where there are a plethora of great SS videos (modern & classic).

Great site! I’ve been trying to find the “Surprise” musical number for ages too… I haven’t seen it since I was 8, but I still remember it clear as a bell. I guess it would’ve been late ’70s or early ’80s, before Mr. Hooper died.

Even an MP3 would be good. There’s some lyrics posted online but they’re incomplete.
