I have a student who is doing work on representations of death in the media
-- most especially on TV.

She is keen to get hold of an episode of _Sesame Street_ in which 'Mr
Hooper' dies -- apparently because the actor who played that role had died.
In the episode other members of the cast tell the kids of Sesame Street
about Mr Hooper's death.

I know it is a very slim chance, but would anyone on this list know of a
tape of this episode, or have a copy of it. Please note that my student does
not reside in the US.

Thanks for any assistance.

All the best,
