Stevie Brings The Funk To Sesame Street

Ah, harken back now to the early days of Jim Henson & Co., when Stevie Wonder performing a 7-minute extended jam of "Superstition" was more important than selling Tickle Me Elmos. So many highlights: the girl (boy?) flipping out on the top of the stairs, the false ending, Stevie's little "Go, Cookie Monster!" improvs... just sublime. Only a shot of Mr Hooper groovin' with Big Bird could make this more perfect.

Bite me, Elmo.
