    it's a numbers song. I think it was showing a pinball machine and the lyrics go:

    one, two, three, four, five
    six, seven, eight, nine, ten,
    eleven, twelve!
    do...do, do, do, do

    and then they highlight a certain number.


    edit: I can't believe I just downloaded it from Kazaa....[​IMG]

    Wasn't that an awesome song?

    I remember it. For some reason, it kind of scared me as a kid. Also, the one where the kids are taught about one-way streets scared me, too. I think the kids were lost, and it was kind of stormy and creepy.

    I remember one that goes up to 20 in both English and Spanish. Showed an East Indian woman...was she moving her arms around like a clock? Wow, this was over 35 years ago...brain burn.

    That thing is awesome. [​IMG] Probably the reason I always liked the Spider-Man/X-Men villain named Arcade.

    Little known fact: the guy who created this--Walt Kraemer--did sound work on Hardware Wars.

    Anyone remember:-

    "Three of these kids belong together
    Three of these kids are kind of the same
    But one of these kids is not like the others
    Now it's time to play our game, time to play our game"

    As another aside, last night my wife and I were in a restaurant, which she refers to as "Grover's restaurant", in homage to those clips where Grover is a frazzled waiter and keeps going in and out of the kitchen trying to get the right thing for the customer. In the few times we've been there, we don't go that late, about 8, but by 9, most customers have finished and they're basically packing up, cleaning up, and there's just a cacophony of noise of glasses clinking as they're being picked up and put down, cutlery being arranged etc as they set up for the next day. And service is spotty. But the place is cheap.

    Good memories, Sesame Street.

    YUP, YUP YUP, UH HUH, UH HUH



    BBBBBBBBBRRRRRRRRRIIIIIIINNNNNNGGGGG........YUP YUP YUP....UH HUH UH HUH.


    and who could forget NEAR.....( Grover runs away).....................FAR

    Oh yeah! I think I actually have that video on a Ninja Tune compilation DVD. The pinball song remix and a couple remixes of "C is for Cookie" are on this single. I just may have to order that [​IMG]

    At first I thought you were referring to the "Ladybug Picnic" cartoon, which as we learned on the Incredibles featurette on "Boundin'" was animated by Bud Luckey! That was the coolest thing.

    That movie was great, but I don't remember that clip being near that long. I think it was one of those things that got cut into several shorter versions and dropped into multiple episodes.

    At first I thought it was the Ladybug Picnic song as well. 123 456 789 101112 ladybugs, at the ladybug picnic. I do remember the Pinball song too.

    Does anyone else remember the the cartoon bit with a guy who sang "There are chickens in the tree. There are chickens in the tree. Oh won't you listen to me please, there are chickens in the tree"?

    I used to be in a rock and roll band named GUM! We often talked about covering the pinball song but never got around to it unfortunately. That would have been very cool!
