Appearances by the Muppets, where show titles and dates are unknown. When information surfaces, these items will be moved to their own pages.
Ernie and Bert with glasses of milk
A clip of Ernie and Bert with a glass of milk is seenn the first episode of CNN's 2015 documentary series The Seventies (on Netflix as of April 2016).
Scott upload the clip as a gif to show the shot used, which doesn't appear to have been used on Sesame Street; the lighting also kind of gives that away. Speculated that it may be something for The Ad Council or a similar government-funded PSA; or perhaps a PBS interstitial or promo.
Bert saying "Ernie"
A couple seconds appears in the A&E Biography when Frank Oz is talking about his characters.
1976 Goro Noguchi Special
Jim Henson's Red Book has information on a guest appearance in a 1976 Japanese special starring the Tokyo-based pop star Goro Noguchi, but it doesn't reveal the title (Henson noted it in his journal simply as "Goro Special". The Muppets were invited by Nippon Television to appear on the program and the characters performed for about twenty minutes in sketches and songs throughout the ninety-minute special. Performers included Jim Henson, Frank Oz, Jerry Nelson, and Dave Goelz (along with assistance from Jane, Cheryl and Lisa Henson).

Kermit in a special with Phylicia Rashad
A YouTube video post circa April 2010 (now dead, but Scott may have this archived) featured Phylicia Rashad singing in French and dancing to disco. The first few frames of the video showed Kermit wearing a tux, sitting at a table with food in front of him before it cut to Rashad's sequence.
