YoB&E: Day 55--Ernie as Robin Hood

Yea verily, Robin Hood searches for merry men

Here's a random observation: almost all the trees on Sesame Street (by which I mean both the location and the show) are oak trees. I wonder why.

The "merry man" at the end of this sketch is named Harvey Kneeslapper. Apparently he was something of a Sesame Street fixture in the 1970s but was discontinued because the laugh was too hard on Frank Oz's throat. No big loss, in my opinion. When even Ernie is annoyed by a character, you know that character is pretty darn annoying.
