From Episode 1092: Ernie hears that one of the neighbors has caught a bad cold, so he consults a home medical book for advice on how to treat sick people--ignoring the obvious patient right in front of him! NOTES: 1. According to Muppet Wiki, this clip has aired as early as Episode 673. 2. Please excuse my posting this clip out of order--the first copy I tried didn't process correctly. PS Many thanks to Sesame Workshop for continuing to allow fan uploads on YouTube.
When Bert wonders what to do with a nearby letter L, Ernie suggests composing a "la-la-la" song which includes other L-words in the lyrics. Of course, the words each character chooses reveal a lot about their personalities... This is the old-school version that most Sesame Street fans remember from the show's early years: blank-wall scenery, spoken reactions to each L-word, and text spelled out onscreen. (The remake which aired in 2001 took place in Bert and Ernie's apartment, and included no text beyond the L itself--one fan supposes that Sesame Workshop did it this way to allow foreign-language dubs.) NOTE: According to Muppet Wiki, this clip has appeared as early as Episode 321.

From Episode 1839: Sesame Street has redone this song (with various performers) at least half a dozen times, but this is the original that inspired the others. Leave it to a comedian like Madeline to tease Grover with those unsingable notes near the end... NOTE: Muppet Wiki gives the publication date for this song as 1977, but doesn't list an airdate earlier than the episode I found it in. If anyone remembers seeing it in an older show, please drop me a note!
From Episode 1839: Grover, Cookie Monster, and Herry perform a vaudeville-style number about the fur color they have in common. Although they can't understand why Frazzle wants to join in, he's accepted--after a minor change to the lyrics.
Bert's jokes are for the birds.
Ernie sings about being all alone with his apple tree and a bunch of animals that come by. One of which includes a cameo of Gladys the Cow.
You know as well as I do why I'm not allowing comments on this video.
Cookie Monster afraid of cookies?
3 Anything Muppets try to perform a stage version of Little Miss Muffet, but the fat blue Anything Muppet keeps on getting his costumes incorrect.
I bet I'm the only one who wasn't traumatized by this clip.
I remember enjoying this some 20 years ago.
This song didn't deserve to be remade by Ernie and Elmo. Kahn may be deceased, but the originals never get old.
I thought for sure that someone would post this before me.
Ernie's greed shines through once again.
This one made quite an impression on me when I was 3 - particularly because they're not wearing any pants. The only good thing about those dumb remakes is that they make you appreciate the originals a whole lot more.
Here it is, post #300 by yours truly. You sure won't see this one on PBS today.
Thank goodness the postal service doesn't have to embarrass themselves this way today.
Sleep is something we sure could use more of.
This O'sketch is ... o'kay, I guess.
Being that I work in a place where I edit videos of weddings (which often makes me sick), I'm particularly pleased to see this one go wrong. Or maybe it's because they're puppets. Still - gotta love Chris Cerf!
Here's the Count at his nuttiest! Too bad they don't have anymore of that good ol' Transylwanian music on the show these days.
Like, the best Muppet/kid moment ever.
Another exclusive peek at the modus operandi of Don Music.
Another appearance by the virtuoso himself.
Here's another 1986 scene with (the definitive) Elmo.
"Haircuts do not hurt ... but crashing through doors is quite painful." Words to live by.
Here they are in a scene from 1980, playing Beethoven's Minuet in G. Telly's character was in early stages of development at this point, which explains his weird voice and awkward punchline.
cute sketch with everyone's favorite muppet cookie monster.
David, Bob, Gordon and Luis get together and sing a tribute to the number 5, a spoof of "Float On" by the Floaters.
That Cookie Bunny sure knows how to hide his cookies. :)
Another 1986 skit with Kermit and Elmo.
Who knew you could do so much with simple building blocks?
"Won't you listen to me please?" Jeff Hale directed this cartoon for Sesame Street.
This time the lesson is about the dark continent.
It's the English version of the video with no cut away at the end.
The song Imagine That, by Ernie.....Wonderful!
Classic stop motion animated film from Sesame Street, said to have been created by Jim Henson. Oranges, of course, are high in acid (citric). The song is from the opera Carmen.
If only there were more unscripted moments like this on Sesame Street today ...
What rhymes with BUY?
The Elmo you see today is not the real Elmo. At least, not to those of us who remember the clips in this montage ...
From 1972. Lefty can't get in until he gives the Secret Knock ... which shouldn't be too hard. Right?
Bert thinks Ernie ate his cookies. After all, if it wasn't Ernie, then ... who else could it have been?
Cookie matching is hard for Ernie, but not for Cookie Monster. From 1970.
Early 70s SS had some great songs...
