The Sweetest 'Sesame Street' Moment

On November 19, 1973, young Joey Calvan and Kermit the Frog shared a song on Sesame Street. Though it started as a simple version of "The Alphabet Song," Joey replaced a few key letters with something else.

Two things to watch for: 1) How gleeful Joey is with her joke; and 2) How Kermit (Jim Henson, already a father of five kids when this was shot) reacts on the fly, both verbally and with muppet facial expressions. This is profoundly delightful.

I'm just going to watch this on repeat for a while. Later, folks.

The art of vanishing fore-edge painting—hiding delicate images on the front edges of gilded books—dates back to about 1660. Today, British artist Martin Frost is the last remaining commercial fore-edge painter in the world. He works primarily on antique books, crafting scenes from nature, domestic life, mythology, and Harry Potter. Great Big Story recently caught up with him in his studio to learn more about his disappearing art. Learn more in the video below.

Kenny Sing's handmade pottery is impossibly precise. He uses design software and paper stencils to cut sharp geometric patterns into his handmade pots. But it's when the pots start spinning that they turn into something truly unique. See more Turn Studio work on Instagram
