The Muppet Show

Can somebody explain the "A" appearance on The Muppet Show better? The description, as-is, is confusing. -- Peter (talk) 15:55, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

How's that? -- Scott (talk) 16:25, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

Similar appearance in Sesame cartoon

Sometime in the mid-70s, I recall watching a cartoon about the letter A. Neither the letter itself nor any related words appeared at first--only an orchestra conductor with all the usual stock-character details (wild hair, formal clothes, baton, and vaguely East European accent). The conductor was apparently testing an offscreen pianist's skill at playing chords:

"May I have a B major, please..."
[pianist plays the chord straight, no visual gimmicks]
"Thank you. Now, may I have a G minor, please?"
[pianist plays that chord straight]
"Thank you. Now, may I have an A, please?"
[Silence for a second, followed by a bass voice speaking the letter-name:"A". The conductor looks up in terror as a gigantic lower-case "a", made from stone, hurtles down towards him and leaves a hole in the floor. The conductor pulls himself up and mutters weakly:]
"Thank you..."
