I think this is pretty solid evidence that the folks behind Sesame Street were definitely on drugs. Also, it’s one of my fondest memories from that show.
If the embedded video doesn’t work here’s a link to the Sesame Street Pinball Countdown on Google Video.
Now that I watch it with adult eyes, I realize it’s not so much of a countdown, really… 🙂
Thank you so much for the stroll down memory lane!
(Claire was also captivated.)
And you gotta love that jazz flute … Will Ferrell should have played this song in Anchorman! 🙂
Wow… I have fond memories of Sesame Street Pinball Countdown and ABC Schoolhouse Rock. I used to have the entire “Conjunction Junction, what’s your function?” song memorized (but now, Google is my friend).
Very cool find… and yeah, I often wondered about the mental state of the Sesame Street folks. 🙂
Funny that you mentioned this…Family Guy did a joke about this last Sunday. It involved Stewie being the pinball, but the rest of it was pretty close to the original, complete with the same music.
