Fred = Tim with a mullet ('Sesame Street' Wednesday)

There's some disagreement over whether this segment was on 'Sesame Street' or 'The Electric Company', but either way, it pibs nonetheless.

Back in the '70s, one of the aforementioned Children's Television Workshop shows offered this catchy ditty about a guy named Fred:


Fred is just like me in a certain way. That's because every night when he gets tired, HE GETS FIRED! Sort of like how I got fired yesterday.

Supposedly, the father of a child who was frightened by that sketch called CTW and got it yanked from the airwaves, but that's probably just an urban legend. It's hard to see how that segment is scary - unlike several other well-known 'Sesame Street' sketches.
