TIL Jim Henson originally wanted the Muppets to be for adults and didn't see his characters as a vehicle for children's education and family entertainment. Indeed, he first envisioned something closer to South Park rather than Sesame Street and in the 1950s they did dark comedy in commercials. slate.com/culture/2018/05…

Cracks: The Long and Odd Hunt for a Lost (and kind of creepy) Sesame Street Segment

This is my first post! :) It is an extremely long one, because there’s so much to this weird story, but I wanted to contribute to the non-murder mystery posts on this sub. TL;DR Creepy piece of lost media - a cartoon on 1970s Sesame Street. The search produces even more unexpected questions.

Jon Armond

Jon Armond was a 6-year-old boy in 1977 when he first saw a segment on Sesame Street that both β€œterrified” and β€œmesmerized” him. According to him, he had thought about it every day for 30 years. He mentioned it to people he knew, trying to find out if anyone else remembered the bizarre clip. He had apparently even heard urban myths about the short - namely that it was removed from air and destroyed because it was causing mental distress in children. He remembered a black-and-white girl in a horrible old house who starts to imagine animals forming out of the cracks in her wall. She meets a few different animals, but then the music changes. She meets a grotesque figure that Armond remembers as the β€œCrack Monster,” who yells until he crumbles out of sheer anger.

This is a popular creepy story premise. Reading it for the first time reminded me of creepypastas like Candle Cove and Squidward’s Suicide. But this one was real, Armond hoped.

In 2008, Armond got a lead. He read a post on cartoonist Jennifer Bourne’s blog β€œTail o’ the Rat.” He commented on a blog post that she had made titled β€œThe Crack Monster!” She was also terrified by the clip when she was young and could not find anything about it on Google, except for some other people who also remembered the clip (with varying details). Armond dropped his email and a plea for anyone who knew where to find the clip to put him out of his misery.

Armond and Bourne built an online community around finding this clip. The clip’s existence became a popular debated topic between Gen Xers in several forums in the early 2000s (there are even a few threads on Reddit dedicated to finding the video). There was literally nothing known about what most referred to as β€œThe Crack Monster Cartoon.” Armond eventually contacted someone at the CTW Archives at the University of Maryland to ask about the clip. He managed to find out that the clip had aired as part of the 979th episode of Sesame Street on February 10th, 1977, but he didn’t get much else. The investigation had seemingly hit a dead end, until…

How to get sesame seeds to stick on store bought potato buns?

I really like the potato buns, they're great, the only thing they're missing is that they don't add sesame seeds on there. I bought a bag of sesame seeds and decided I'd just put them on there myself when I'm making burgers or such but I'm wondering how to get the sesame seeds to stick to the buns?
