We love you, Miss Hannigan
Well, jumping right into the pool, it has recently come to my attention via IMDb that Carol was on the very first episode of Sesame Street. Which, therefore, I need to get my hands on by yesterday or so. This is kind of the best thing I've ever heard in my life, that Carol was in the first episode of Sesame Street. Damn it all, this isn't the first time I've raged against Jim Henson's estate or PBS or whoever for not having released the early years of Sesame Street on DVD long since. I swear to God, it's a conspiracy, and Elmo is the one running it.
The other thing I need right now is Lights, Camera, Annie, a behind-the-scenes documentary on the making of Annie that features outtakes from "Easy Street". I.e., it features footage of Carol Burnett, Tim Curry, and Bernadette Peters messing around and messing up and probably generally being hilarious. Which makes it, like, the second best thing I've ever heard of in my life. I'm having absolutely no luck tracking it down though.
Oh, and then there's the 1972 TV airing of Once Upon a Mattress, featuring Carol as Princess Winnifred and Bernadette Peters as Lady Larken. Which is somewhere up there among the best things I've ever heard of too, I guess.
Sometimes I think I should switch to a contemporary fandom so that indulging my obsession wouldn't involve shelling out absurd amounts of money on eBay.
Anyway, enough whining. Future posts will contain screencaps, links, and, well, and more whining.
