Sesame Street Crossover [2005]

Last night, my kids and I were watching an episode of Sesame Street (What? You didn't think Mister Rogers Neighborhood was the only kid show we watch in our house, did you?). It was the third episode from Season 36 (2005).

In this episode, Snuffy wishes he could float like a cloud and is greeted by the Fairy Balloon Person played by Richard Kind.

 
After providing Snuffy with enough balloons to carry him into the sky, the Fairy Balloon Person hears a short musical jingle and a quick crossover takes place:
[jingle]
Fairy Balloon Person: "Uh oh. I hear a wish."
[jingle]
Fairy Balloon Person: "Somebody in Mister Rogers' Neighborhood wants a balloon. I bet it's a beautiful day there!"
If you're a Netflix subscriber, check this out sometime. This episode is one of the many available through their streaming service.
