Date: 30 Oct 00 - 12:09 AM

I have an almost complete collection of the original "Muppet Show", which aired in the latter 70's. I am lacking one. Alice Cooper starred in the one I am seeking. Any of the Mudcat crew happen to have a copy?

The show is airing on Odessey at 6:00. I have avoided my TV for a long time but that show and the Star Trek reruns are what keep tempting me back to it. I guess I could start watching and taping that show only.

It is no hardship. I have always considered the Muppet Show to be the best comedy ever made for TV (at least since I started watching it).

I remember that show, Possum, but I haven't a copy. Could you post the words to the Muppett version of "The Cat Came back"?

The muppet Show was the best but... I would Love to get copies of the early Sesame Street shows, from the late 60's early 70's. I grew up on that stuff and know the music had a big influence on me.

I've seen some of the animated and live action shorts here and there over the years and am always blown away with nostalgia and some wierd memory feeling I can't explain. A few I remember are The king and his Daughters, Lower Case "n", The funk instrumental with an animated pinball machine that counts to 10, The film of that Rube Goldberg type thing with some kind of wierd keyboard music, A short film of a little girl on a bus with her dad with a fingerpicked guitar soundtrack, etc... I've searched all over the web for these but haven't tracked anything down. The Children's Television Workshop dosen't return my emails. (do I sound like a wacko?)

I can remember as a kid watching Jim Henson and the original Muppets in the late 50s.The show originated in Florida, I believe, and we saw it on a Wash. D.C. station.

wow rr, I didn't know Jim Henson started doing Muppets in the 50'S!

Alison, you know the lower case n song? Did it make you cry?

As far as Alice Cooper on the Muppets, never saw that one but it must have been good, did he have animal playing drums with him?

it did at the time.. I vaguely remember it.....

something about him being left lonely standing on a hill....

Grover was my favourite... "and today Grover show us the difference between near & far"... in Ireland we only got Seame Street once a week on Saturday mornings.. over here in Oz.. it's twice a day Mon- Fri...... but my kids don't seem to enjoy it as much as we did....

This thread made me watch Sesame Street yesterday, it was ok. They had Christopher Reeves on, big bird asked him all about his wheel chair. They also had this machine that wouldnt stop making bowls of porrige, they were all freaking out, then the Count came in and counted them. but no cool old animation, and the muppets just weren't that funny.

I've passed the URL for this thread on to a friend who was head writer at Sesame Street for a while and was one of the writers in London of the Muppet Show. I asked him to drop in and this note is to encourage him to add something to the thread. Go ahead, Rainmaker!

For what it's worth, Possum, at least part of that show has been put on a commercially available videotape. My library owns it, but not at the branch where I'm working today. It's called "Monster laughs: with Vincent Price". It's part of the Muppet Show video series put out by Jim Henson Videos (copyright 1994). I hope this helps.
