Yeah, I'm hoping whoever gets them will have them all, and I'll just buy gift cards to watch them online. I can't wait for HBO to put all 50 years of Sesame Street online! (Although I really just want 1969-1990!)
Just for fun, here are the jokes as I roughly remember them (at least I know they'll be on again next year, and I can wait for them!):
1) 10/26/70 skit with Carol and Bernadette Peters in a bridal shop, discussing their boyfriends. Carol: "My boyfriend doesn't even understand Sesame Street."
2) 11/30/70 skit with Carol and Debbie Reynolds trying to film a coffee commercial, and one of them says she has to go because she has to watch Sesame Street.
3) 11/24/71 skit called "Ironstreet & Wife". A cop is trying to explain something to the criminal over and over, and somebody says, "What is this, Sesame Street?"
4) Paul Lynde in a skit from the 1971-1972 season (he was on a bunch of times), where he's a criminal talking about a stash of counterfeit money: "I learned it on Sesame Street."
I'm sure there are more, and that's why I'd love to see the uncut shows. I'm sure they also spoofed SS in their musical numbers at least once, since the show was such a cultural explosion.
