Big Bird: You know, it's weird. She shows up out of nowhere, helps me and Barkley, and then just disappears. And I don't even know her name. Maybe she's the Lone Ranger?

I knew it was real
19 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For years i asked people if they ever saw this episode and no one ever had, people told me it didn't exist. Then i finally met someone who saw the movie and this is complete affirmation of the existence of this movie. so for all of those who didn't believe, its real mother you know what! so yeah thats about it, I'm just super excited that this movie is real. everyone of you should watch this movie because it is the best movie that i may have possibly ever seen. My eyes are blessed to have seen this masterpiece, and again to all of you who didn't believe me it was real, well now you know. Now you know mother (shut your mouth) yeah.
