There is more on that week's show, but I wrote out the part that's relevant for us. It seems odd that that the Sesame parody featured a bunch of surprise cameos, and not the main guest stars for that week, unless it was pre-taped. Since I'm not sure who exactly was in the sketch, I thought I would leave it here for now. Also, from Googling Poppyseed Street, there seems to have been a score written for it that is now in storage at UCLA, so now I'm wondering if they did any parody songs or any original songs during that number/sketch. I'm trying to see who added that information to her page, and maybe this will be a show that we can track down. So make that 5, 5 Sesame references on The Carol Burnett Show! Ah-ah-ah!

I just read about the skit that was mentioned on Carol Burnett's page, and I have some raw data to add to it. The wiki says:

A 1970 episode of The Carol Burnett Show also featured a Sesame spoof, "Poppyseed Street", with the cast imitating Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch.

McFarland's Television Variety Shows says:

12/7/70: [Guest stars on this episode are] Don Rickles, [and] Mel Torme. Adult-oriented "Sesame Street" spoof, "Poppyseed Street", with cameos by Lucille Ball, "Mama" Cass Elliot, Ricardo Montalban, Dean Martin, Jim Nabors, and Dick Martin.
