Last week, we posted some video we recorded during out recent visit to the set of Sesame Street. Click here to check it out if you haven’t already!
After the cast and crew finished taping the sequence that took place in Susan and Gordon’s bedroom, they began shifting the cameras around and preparing for the next scene, in which Maria and Luis go to the basement of 123 Sesame Street to fix the pipes, only to find Oscar scuba-diving. While this was going on, Muppet performers Carmen Osbahr and Leslie Carrara-Rudolph, fresh from playing dancing sheep, graciously agreed to talk to us on camera… even after the lights went out! Watch the video below to hear all about the GLOPs, Andy Samberg and the Shape-o-Bots, and to hear me completely fail to know the difference between Jason Mraz and James Blunt.
Hey, isn’t that Jim Martin, Caroll Spinney and Emilio Delgado milling around in the background? Why, yes. Yes it is. As far as I could tell, Martin was directing the scene, and Spinney and Delgado were playing Oscar and Luis, as you might expect.
As luck would have it, shortly after we talked to Ms. Osbahr and Ms. Carrara-Rudolph, we ran into two very special Sesame Street cast members: Abby Cadabby and Rosita. They were happy to chat with us, despite not even knowing what the word “chat” means. Watch the video here for the scoop on Flying Fairy School and the astounding true story of what happened to Rosita’s wings.
Are those two great, or what?
But that’s not all! Keep an eye right here on ToughPigs.com for the third and final installment of our Sesame day, in which we sit on a couch!
Our thanks to Carmen Osbahr, Leslie Carrara-Rudolph, Sesame Workshop’s Pam Hacker, and the rest of the Sesame Street gang, and a tip of the hat to Steve Swanson! Click here to learn the nose flute on the Tough Pigs forum!
