Beware The Return of the Son of the Children's Television Workshop of Horror!
I've featured "scary" material from Sesame Street, The Electric Company, and The Muppet Show several times before, and today is another one of those times. Only one of the two clips I have for you this year is actually connected to the Children's Television Workshop, but who's keeping track?
First up from Sesame Street: there are mysterious moans coming from an old deserted house--is it haunted? Billy Joe Jive, super crime fighting ace, and his partner Smart Susie Sunset are on the case!
Next, from Jim Henson's pre-Sesame Street series Sam and Friends, a parody of Edward R. Murrow's celebrity interview series Person to Person, slyly named Poison to Poison. The interview subject is an Alfred Hitchcock spoof. Enjoy!
