A Sesame Street short that got shorted (almost)

As any child of the 80s knows, there is a slew of great mini-cartoons and animation shorts from Sesame Street that belong on yesterday's list of the greatest shorts. Unfortunately, word space and time are cruel mistresses.

There was a sixth I wanted to include but had to go: the famous Baby Climbs the Stairs short. It deserves special mention because it's more emotional teaching than just concrete concepts like numbers or letters. It was also created by W. Lee Savage, the father of Mythbusters host and special effects guy Adam Savage.

I remember watching it in the mid-eighties, but it could have been made earlier. Some clips, I think they showed for a long period of time.

I also remember the "I get mad" goat, the guy who painted numbers in various places, typewriter guy, sign guy, Grover the Waiter, anything with Cookie Monster or Ernie.

Ah, the memories!

Cute clip, but I would have added the "A loaf of bread, a container of milk, and a stick of butter" sketch to your list instead. 20 years later and I still remember that shopping list, LOL! ;)
