      Susan, David Bowie was in Labyrinth a Jim Henson movie, but if he was on Sesame Street it certainly escaped me. Here is a little David Bowie treat for you though: David Bowie & Mick Jagger - Dancing in the Streets.

      Help me, SS fans! What was the name of the comedienne who pretended to be a little girl, and she ended by saying "And that's the truth!" and then blows a raspberry. I'm racking my brain!
