This video compilation, part of the Gene Siskel Film Center's two-month retrospective on the Muppets creator, collects performances by the Sesame Street puppet characters on network and syndicated TV programs: variety shows (The Ed Sullivan Show), TV talk shows (Dick Cavett, Dinah Shore, Mike Douglas, Johnny Carson), game shows (Big Bird and Oscar on The Hollywood Squares). The most engaging segments are excerpted from two TV specials: Julie on Sesame Street (1973), shot in London by Blake Edwards and starring his wife, Julie Andrews, and Out to Lunch (1974), which combines the Muppets with Morgan Freeman, Rita Moreno, and the other human players from another public TV landmark, The Electric Company.
