Up and Down


This page mentions that the episode features "Up and Down" with Cookie Monster and Herry Monster. However, I think this might be the wrogn version. As far as I know, Herry first appeared in the second season. I know of no first season sketches with Herry, and all first season monsters that I know of are either reused or rebuilt versions of puppets used in earlier Henson productions, and I can't think of anything that came before Sesame Street that had a Muppet monster who resembled Herry. Also, the song has a plain-colord red background. Nearly every first season sketch with a plain-colored background used a dark white background, though a plain black background was occassionally used whenever a scene required a Muppet to move in full-body form. Could there have been a different version of the song during the first season? --Minor muppetz 23:49, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, good point. The file that I have says:
Muppet Song: "Up & Down" - 60
and then RE-DO is penciled in next to that, which might mean that they made a new version of it. I think you're right -- whether this is the same song or not, it's not the same version. I'll change this page, and the stuff that links to it. -- Danny (talk) 00:39, 30 January 2007 (UTC)
Have you seen the phrase "Re-do" penciled in to any songs that you know were remade on the show (such as "Rubber Duckie" or "Bein' Green")? --Minor muppetz 03:28, 30 January 2007 (UTC)
There's three more places that say "Re-do" in the file: Ernie drinks milk from episode 0016, "Answer Lady #1" from episode 0112 and "Answer Lady #2" from episode 0122, and then a few film inserts where you see objects really close up.
There are a bunch that have "DUMP" pencilled in, which means stop using those segments -- all the Buddy and Jim segments, the Ernie and Bert "What Happens Next" bit from episode 0017, Ernie dusts the shelf from episode 0094, "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" from episode 0003, Ernie skips from episode 0015, Swiss cheese from episode 0010, "Fat & Thin E&B Toast Bit" from episode 0024, and then a bunch of animations and film inserts.
There are also a bunch that say "USE INFREQUENTLY" (or "UI") -- Kermit's jelly beans from episode 0022, Father/Mother/Children Song from episode 0011, and a lot of film inserts. -- Danny (talk) 03:54, 30 January 2007 (UTC)
