Andrea Martin and Oscar the Grouch Demonstrate Anger

A couple of years ago now on Andrea Martin's birthday I posted a long-gone clip from SCTV of her impeccable Barbra Streisand impersonation*; the past couple of years I've decided to show my readers an equally skillful act she puts on, in this case anger.

Opposite Oscar the Grouch on Sesame Street, Martin lends her own considerable charm to that of puppeteer Carroll Spinney, much to the chagrin of Maria (Sonia Manzano). In under two minutes, you will witness everything that makes everyone involved so special...

*Alongside an uncanny rendering of Ruth Gordon by Valri Bromfield.
