I have searched for this for years, and have found nothing…but I remember in great detail a song on SESAME STREET (this would have been 1980 or before) called “Surprise!” It involved various scenes and cast members from the show doing silly things that involved an element of surprise. Then at some point in the song, someone knocks on Oscar’s trashcan and Maria pops up in a red devil suit and with a deep scary voice proclaims, “Oscar isn’t here!!”
This scared the piss out of me as a kid and I would like to see if it still does, but I find absolutely no reference to this scene and no one who remembers it…I know I am sane, but I would love to see this again or at least hear from someone who remembers it.
UNK SEZ: No luck finding that “Maria as Satan” clip Stephen, but I did find this old clip of Oscar which reveals him to be a natural ginger! He’s even singing my theme song “I love trash!”
