    I don't remember this guy.. a bit before my time. But Sesame Street sure had some creepy characters... and our generation sure turned out better than the last few ;o). Kids today need to be scared by their TV again! ;o)

    fun prop building attempt though!

    That's before my time too, he must not have lasted long as I'd have remembered seeing something like that in the 80s.

    He looks like one of two things - a Doctor Who villain or that Mars probe the 6 Million Dollar Man fought.

    The robot looks like what's left from the Venus Space Probe from The Six Million Dollar Man. :)

    I vaguely remember S.A.M.

    I like that there were more Gordons than Darrens from "Bewitched"

    I don't remember SAM at all but after watching that I DO remember seeing SAM's body in something else, though I can't recall what. I'm sure they removed his eyes and mouth and recycled him at some point.

    I'm starting to recall that SAM's body may have been used in The Muppet Show at some point, where they put things into that round portal under that front hatch, he makes some noise, then the hatch swings down again and the thing they wanted made comes out. I'm not entirely sure about this but that's what I'm remembering.

    One of those things I had completely forgotten about until this jogged my memory. I now remember SAM quite well.

    S.A.M. = Dalek v. 1.0

    Listen to the voice and think "EXTERMINATE!"

    I remember this; never cared for the character. Not only wasn't he funny, but I couldn't get over that he has big Muppet googly eyes. Is he a robot or a living Muppet creature? Too goofy (even for wee little Treadwell).

    Don't remember it. Looks like they were trying too hard to be everything.

    It's huge!

    Into a TARDIS console perhaps? :love

    I was also going to guess the resemblence to the Venus Space Probe from Six Million Dollar Man as well (that thing IS burned in my brain). As much as I watched Sesame Street when I was a kid, I still can't quite remember SAM in the same vein as the other characters. But maybe I didn't really watch it that much until about 1975-76, which would have been the tail end of SAM's appearances.

    I remember Sesame Street before the dark times. Before Elmo.

    I remember him, I would go hide in the other room when he came on.

    I must not have been the only one, or more of you guys would have seen him.
