  1. It's too bad the lead singer (Thad Mumford) never did any other Sesame singing; he's got a great voice.

  2. I was letting my daughter watch Sesame Street because I grew up watching it, but not there is so much liberal propaganda it's unbelievable now you are becoming blasphemous with this nonsense SESAME STREET IS DEAD

  3. Green Doctor: Thad Mumford
    Blue Patient: Jeff Moss
    Green Doctor: Chris Cerf
    Orange Doctor: Jerry Nelson
    Lavender Doctor: Richard Hunt

  4. The Count's Voice: "Let's Kick Off the Count's Countdown with the Music Wideo that's NUMBER 7 on the Charts This Week!, it's Dr. Thad and the Medications with the Ever Popular 'Ten Commandments of Health',
    And Here's my Favourite Part where I Get to Count Backwards!, HA-HAAA Yes!, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1… ROLL THE VIDEOTAPE!!!, HAAAAAAA!!!" 0:00

  5. if people make an opposite of this song will it be he 10 unhealthy commands
    1. before you eat don't wash your hands
    2. after every meal don't brush your teeth
    3. never see any doctor or dentist
    4. when sneezing never cover any nose
    5. when coughing never cover any mouth
    6. get naked or wear just underwear in cold weather
    7. never exercise to keep out of shape
    8. when each day is through never bathe or shower
    9. consume lots of soft drinks and junk food
    10. never give any body all the sleep at all

  6. I know for a fact that's not Jim Henson singing, but I'm pretty sure that's him doing the puppeteering for the lead doctor. He was a bit of a ham, wasn't he?

  7. There is so much mini-stories going on in this piece. The visuals/action/blocking was so well done and the music is perfect. Espcially when the assistant hit the wrong at '9' and the other two were like 'What??? …. oh well". Watch it again a few times.

  8. 1. Wash your hands before you eat.
    2. Brush your teeth after evert meal
    3. See your doctor and your dentist
    4. Cover your nose when sneezing
    5. Cover your mouth when coughing
    6.Dress warmly in cold weather
    7. Exercise to keep in shape
    8. Bath or Shower each day
    9. Eat fruits ad vegetables
    10. Get enough sleep.

  9. Why couldn't The Moonglows sue Dr Thad and the Medications for Copyright Infringment of their original song "The Ten Commandments of Love"
    and take down this video because of it?

  10. At least to me, the puppeteers look like Frank Oz (as Dr. Thad), Jim Henson (as the Pumpkin doctor), Richard Hunt (as the two other doctors), and Jerry Nelson (as the patient). Those look like their styles.

  11. The Singers
    Thad Mumford – Dr. Thad
    Richard Hunt, Frank Oz, and Christopher Cerf – The Medications
    Jerry Nelson – The Fat Blue Patient

  12. He missed a commandment. The one that says the anesthesiologist will knock you out, if you don't keep still.
