    I know JC appeared on Sesame Street in 1969 or 1970, in the very very early seasons of the show. I know the internet is a goldmine of endless items, and wondered if anyone knows where I might find a screen capture or two of his appearance.

    1970? I thought this show started around 73 or 74. I was about four when I remember seeing the first one & I was born in late 68.

    According to IMDB, the show began in 1969... which is right on par with what I always thought. IMDB lists Cash's appearance in 1969, but I think it might have been filmed late in the year, and aired in 1970.
    Every article I can find lists 1969 as the debut:

    etc, etc, etc.
    Funny how memory works. Sesame Street was well rooted and the success paved with way for the Muppet Show which was in development in 1974 and on the air by 75! So Sesame couldn't have started as late as 74. Either you didn't see "the first one", or it was a repeat... maybe it was the first episode your local PBS offered?
