Say, you guys seem to be digging deeper into Sesame Street than anyone else around the web...does anyone know anything about the Krazy Kat animation that apparently premiered on this episode? As I remember it, it was an extraordinarily faithful adaptation of George Herriman's art. I know I saw it on Sesame Street once, though I feel it was more recently than 31 years ago. It was a truly weird thing to have on the show. Any ideas why it was done? Who animated it? Was it done specifically for Sesame Street? Is it available for viewing anywhere?
Basically, does anyone know ANYTHING more about it?

- We don't know much about it, unfortunately, though a lot of people remember it. It was done especially for Sesame Street as far as we can tell, and keep in mind, they also had Beetle Bailey (both were owned by King Features; supposedly another King Features character, Tiger, appeared, but we haven't confirmed it). It was probably done by the same people that did the Beetle Bailey segment (which, it's worth noting, does not appear to be the same group that did the king Features TV cartoons in the 1960s). Until Sesame Workshop puts it out on DVD or a copy surfaces on YouTube or for trade, that's about it. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 04:04, 14 November 2007 (UTC)
- Not quite: it first appeared in Season 5, and a season 5 press kit has images from this segment. It surfaced on eBay quite a while ago. -- MuppetDude 18:14, 14 November 2007 (UTC)
