1970s Sesame Street Videos


Growing up, I loved Sesame Street. Yes, I loved the puppets and characters, but I especially loved the  video snippets featuring real kids. Here are two that always stick out in my mind. Check it...




Milk, Milk, Milk ... Crying baby needs her bottle filled. We learn where milk comes from on the farm.

We watched a lot of Sesame Street, but my old brain doesn't remember either one of those clips.

I can't help but wonder who would let those two little kids play with a dollhouse full of teeny tiny pieces like that. I mean those are total choking hazards or at the very least would get ground into and lost in the carpet......oh god, I just became my mother.

OMG, I remember both of these and still play them in my head every now and then. Thanks for sharing! :D

I also recall the one that goes "It's a rain-y day, it's a rain-y day; it's raining outside and I can't go out and play." And "beet beet sugar beet beet sugar beet sugar beet sugar beet beet!" :D

The doll house one brought back sweet memories of watching Sesame Street with my girls. It is such a lovely little scene.

OMG - I remember the milk one! The doll house one not so well - but it seems vaguely familiar.

And miratemplen - I always sing that beet beet sugar beet song to this day. No one ever knows what I'm talking about. :)

1970's Sesame Street, I grew up watching that, and still have a major crush on Maria (Sonia Manzano). I often especially became more fond of her when she appeared in those fast motion, slow motion pixilated short films. Such as when Maria attempts to build a matching tower out of large colorful blocks, or when she's Speedy Maria, when she demonstrated subtraction by taking away chairs from the scene.
You tell me on how back then a parent in NYC would let their kids go outside and play and go who knows where, and then they won't come home until sundown.
I loved the night time closing credits song as it sounded like a lullabye, and the dream sequences of Bert Ice skating, and when they sing a song about imagination, and in the end you see tons of colorful balloons falling in Sesame Street at night.
