Put down the duckie!

Kris Tiner shares an incredible Sesame Street video, when Ernie gets some valuable music education. Besides the guest stars Kris names, I recognize everyone except the pompous British couple. They look vaguely familiar, perhaps from some BBC show that gets re-aired on PBS? The Jeremy Irons part is very funny, and it is great to see Pete Seeger.

The British couple is from the series Upstairs Downstairs (BBC and PBS). Gordon Jackson played the butler, and Jean Marsh played a maid, and they were not a "couple" on the show.

I also remember a version with Little Richard at the piano. I would love to be able to find that one.
