Picture Segment Description
Kidssing-intro

Kidssing-moishemachine
COLD OPEN
An announcer (Bill St. James) introduces "Shirat Ha-Shirim" ("Song of Songs") with host, Kippi Ben Kippod. But, MOISHE OOFNIK comes in to host his own show, "Noise of Noises" & shows off his noise machine. It plays nice classical music (including the night-time SESAME STREET Theme), so MOISHE tries to fix it with a hammer, but it explodes on him. Kippi comes into the studio, & wonders what MOISHE is doing; he gets up woozily, saying he wanted to start the show with a bang before fainting.
