Hilarious Blooper Footage From an Elmo and Robin Williams Sketch For a 1991 Sesame Street Special

During the 1991 Sesame Street special “Big Bird’s Birthday or Let Me Eat Cake”, the legendary Robin Williams hilariously showed a curious Elmo the many fun things one can do with a stick. A blooper reel of that hilarious sketch shows what happens when Elmo gets Mr. Williams’ name wrong.

I only had three lines.

Here’s the original episode. The sketch begins at 12:41.
