Awesome Unforgettable TV Special!
5 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this TV special at the tender age of eight. Perhaps it was one of my favorite TV specials at the time because I was into the unique Sid and Marty Kroft giant puppets and Sesame Street and I was mesmerized of myself running away to a make believe land of friendly non-human characters. All of the muppets and the famous celebrities who appeared on this program were very extraordinary with parodies of soap operas, commercials, variety shows, etc. I also remember Carol Burnett doing a hilarious dance step with camera tricks in rewind and Carol in a bra commercial parody. All together "Out To Lunch" was a combination of Sesame Street meets Saturday Night Live in a G rated form. It was such a shame this show was not rebroadcast-ed again or released on DVD. I call this awesome once in a lifetime unforgettable program a classic that could possibly be passed on from kids who grew up in the seventies to generations of children and grandchildren in the present and future.
