I wonder if this was another segment he did for Sesame Street??

I hope so, because otherwise my confidence in him as the (almost)quintessential manly intellectual has been dminished just a wee bit. :)

"Almost" because there's only one man who crushes that category for all time, and I'm married to him.

And the day he dances around on camera with a cane and top hat to a show tune is ....well, it's just never going to come. And I am really okay with that. :)

I was thinking the same thing, Rachael, though I haven't watched anything on Sesame Street since my kids were very young. I have liked almost everything I have seen Patrick Stewart do, and in my case there was no "almost" until this video. Too silly.

I liked the "Me and My M" bit much better than this.

Ok... That was.. entertaining. I guess.


But this is the best alphabet song ever.

As I recall, this was for Gene Roddenberry's birthday...

Amazing how those Brits pronounce the last letter of the alphabet wrong all the time. But that was quite entertaining thank you for sharing.

Oh and Mesa Mike: Nyuk! Nyuk! WOOOWOOOO a wise guy eh?

You never saw him play a campy gay opera critic on Frasier, I gather.

He's done a lot of broadway stuff too

French influence, perhaps?

2. Mesa Mike, don't even get me started on the Stooges. They actually sound pretty good in this alphabet song. One of my favorite episodes was the one in which Curly was mistaken for a coloratura soprano and was asked to sing at a society salon. When a tenor discovered their secret, he unplugged the record player--and they were awful!!

So this is what the night shift on the Enterprise-D is like ...
