Samples the theme tune of the US children's television show Sesame Street, also the character 'The Count' counting.

There are 6 versions of this single with different artwork/credits.

This entry in the database is for version 6:

1. The earliest version of this release features a drawing of Oscar the Grouch from the TV show holding a suspiciously fat hand-rolled cigarette on the front inlay, the Cookie Monster character with the caption "get sorted!" on the inside inlay and the Cookie Monster without the caption on the CD's label. This version gives full credit to the members of Smart E's. A promotional company sticker on the case gives the release date as 29 June 1992. Discogs Release I.D. 1186315

2. This is an early release version which still has all of the artwork as featured on the promo copy. It was sold at HMV briefly (see price sticker). Discogs Release I.D. 2918421

3. This version removes the cartoon from the front and inside inlays, the credits are for the members of Smart E's and the Cookie Monster picture are printed on the CD's label. Discogs Release I.D. 1186323

4. This version removes the artists credits from the inlay, but they remain on the CD's label as does the picture of the Cookie Monster. Discogs Release I.D. 2918362

5. This version has the same inlay as the above (no credits), but the picture of the Cookie Monster is removed from the CD's label and the credits are changed for the original writers/producers of the theme tune music ("Stone/Hart/Raposo"). Discogs Release I.D.3219731

6. This version has writer and producer credits for "Stone/Hart/Raposo" on the reverse of the inlay. Discogs Release I.D. 13380

Incidentally the German issue on ZYX has essentially the same inlay artwork as the first version except for some minor changes (e.g. label and catalogue number) but different artwork on the disc (generic ZYX branding).

I bought this on the day of release and oscar appeared, doobie n all. Very shortly afterwards the sleeves we actually cut around the picture of the spliff smoking can dweller, thus removing him completely. A new batch we're issued with the offending Munted Muppet missing. Just a boring plain old cd inlay :( - bah - fight the power - Freedom to party :)

I have a promo release of this CD single which has extra artwork. On the front of the inlay is a picture of Oscar the Grouch sitting in his garbage can with a big spliff in his hand! On the inside the picture of the Cookie Monster from the CD artwork is repeated but with the text "get sorted!" added. Presumably such unsubtle drugs references weren't deemed appropriate for the official release. hehe.

Cat number is the same as the full release. Release date is given as 29 Jun 1992.
