Ha! I honestly don't know if I've seen that version before. I actually remember a puppety but non-muppety version of that song on Captain Kangaroo (but I can't find it on YouTube).I love the Henson math of fur and/or feathers = crazy. If those weren't puppets we'd be watching a disturbing scene of two young girls being accosted by a midget hippie.
That's awesome! Is he drunk?
Jim Henson's incredible skill as a puppeteer is in evidence here.True story: George Lucas had a drink with Henson in London, in, like, 1978, and asked for his help: he wanted to bring a puppet into the next Star Wars as a "believable main character." Would Henson do it. Henson said he was totally into the idea but that Frank Oz should be the actual performer because, Henson explained, "He's the best there is."
Octo, isn't this the version on Hans' tape from the Museum of Television?
I don't remember. Could be I was experiencing too many exotic things at the same time.
awesome blast fom the past. i was a sesame street addict from day one.
The disapproving frowns on the girls (especially during the dude's "jam-out session" moments) are also very well done.Octo, this is the one Hans had on bootlegged VHS tape. I remember rejoicing at seeing the true original (not the Muppet Show retread) and I remember totally cracking up at the fact that he's wearing a little striped jersey. (And digging his penchant for going "way back there.")
"toddler-sized" t-shirts: worn by Muppets and swimsuit models. (And God bless 'em both.)
Oh, I'm so late to this! We have a Sesame Street CD that we listen to in the car sometimes and this is on it. One of our favorites!
He looks like he wandered in from Washington Square Park.
