Oh, this one actually made it through? Nice.

The chorus, such as it is, was perminantly etched into my brain. I'd forgotten the rest of the song was spoken word, sorta like cowboy poetry.

I searched for this recently because I was wondering if Bud Luckey ("Ladybugs' Picnic" and Pixar's "Boundin'") was the singer, but it's some guy named Fred Wardenburg. Some info on the guy, who became a family therapist but one with a love of music, here on his jazz scholarship fund page: http://www.earshot.org/Education/wardenburg.html

Anyone remember a similar SESAME STREET horse-based short film that, if I remember correctly, featured a girl taking riding courses at an equestrian school? What I specifically remember about it as a kid was that the background music was, if you listened very closely, essentially the LAVERNE & SHIRLEY theme played on a piano.

:) Of all the Sesame Street songs that randomly pop into my head I think this is my favorite. It's been on the site before but unless it takes up extra space or is something really recent, I'm totally fine with it.


old one. 3 comments. From 2007. Including Camonk's critical observation of Border Collies!!?!

Oh yeah! Never noticed that before. I actually tried searching for Sesame Street Horse Laverne and Shirley which brings up some interesting images.

I didn't have an idea of what breed of Dog that was at the time, but remember the video well, they must have played these films every month.

One time I read the Collie owner's account of how the crew came to his ranch and filmed this. As I remember, it was fast and easy for what became a legendary little video.
