The Rich Girls Are Weeping

02 May 2006

It's funny how you can labor under a delusion for years and years before you're set straight. I had a Sesame Street record as a kid -- The Stars Come Out On Sesame Street -- and in my memory, the best song was Oscar the Grouch and Johnny Cash doing "Five Feet High and Rising.' Well, thanks to Ugly Floral Blouse, I now know that it was Biff, not Oscar, and Mr. Cash. After a little digging around, I found that Oscar and Cash did duet, but it was on "Nasty Dan." That song was also on that record; I'm going to try and dig it up now too.

My question - who was Biff? This is a Sesame Street muppet I do not remember!

Weird! I remember Sully clearly, but not Biff. What a blind spot for a kid who watched Sesame Street every day...
