Headball is a recurring athletic series of Sesame Street sketches set at "Roosevelt Franklin Stadium," introduced in season 7. Roosevelt Franklin takes on the role of referee, who asks the players (his Roosevelt Franklin Elementary School students) questions, which they must use their heads to answer; correct answers are referred to as "thinkers." Showered Rozelle serves as the sportscaster for the game.
The segments are scored by a thematic variation of the "Roosevelt Franklin Elementary School" theme. The exterior shot of the stadium is represented by a photo of the now-demolished Shea Stadium.
