  12. If there was no ball what was with the sound effects?

  13. @its4it It's their imagination.

  14. @rc100692 Silly me. I should have guessed it.

  15. Tennis with no ball using a badminton net in a squash court? Wow… even sesame street makes fun of racquet sports….

  16. I don't remember seeing this as a kid.  I stopped watching Sesame Street in 1983.  This was probably made later on.  With Tony Danza, it was probably done during his "Who's The Boss" days in the 80s.

  17. This very clip is how I came to know who Tony Danza was. Then I found out he starred in "Who's the Boss?" lol…This had to be made during those days too. I can tell by Tony's hair here 🙂

  18. I can't help but laugh out loud hearing the name Tony Danza.

  19. Tony Danza on Sesame Street.

  20. Tony must've taken a day off from his housekeeping duties at Angela Bower's house to play a little one-on-one with Big Bird.

  21. Sesame Street: Twenty Love With Tony Danza season 17 1985 1986

  22. I never knew Big Bird played tennis. I guess the song "What a Bird" was NOT written for nothing!

  23. The two funniest moments are at 1:01 and 1:06 for me!
