Sesame Street: 20 Years and Still Counting! episode[edit]

Bill Cosby: I am standing on the most famous street in America. Maybe in the whole world. Sesame Street. Yes, Sesame Street has The Fix-It Shop, Hooper's Store. The carriage house, Kermit the Frog.... KERMIT THE FROG!
Kermit the Frog: Hey, Bill Cosby.
Bill Cosby: What are you doing here?
Kermit the Frog: Well, Not for long. You see, I am on my way to the Frog on the Street interview asking The Question of the Day.

Bill Cosby: There is a secret behind all this kidding around, You see.

Bill Cosby: Do not adjust your TV sets. That was Rubber Duckie in English, Spanish, Hebrew, German, and French. How may I ask "Is this possible?" Well, It is possible. Because, Sesame Street is the largest street in the world! It can be seen in over 83 countries.

Bill Cosby: Several years ago, Will Lee, The actor who played Mr. Hooper died. He was NOT replaced by another actor, The character did not move away or something, When Sesame Street's Mr. Hooper, Died!

Kermit the Frog: Hi-Ho, This is Kermit the Frog from Sesame Street news about The Question of the Day. [To Don Music] Oh, Don Music. Can you tell me how to get to Sesame Street?
Don Music: Well, You practice.
