Sesame Street - Snuffleupagus

For fourteen years the Sesame Street character of Snuffleupagus was only ever seen on-screen in the company of Big Bird (and a select few other muppets like Elmo). Whenever an "adult" walked into the shot, Snuffleupagus would conveniently exit - leading some to believe he was just a figment of Big Bird's fevered imagination.

Today's clip documents that momentous occasion when the "human" cast finally met the elusive muppet. Please note that all three muppets in the scene lay a massive guilt trip on stammering David. And I dare you not to be touched by Susan's heartfelt apology to Big Bird.
