In a 1998 SESAME STREET episode, the agency recruits SLIMEY for a mission to the moon. Staffed by a WASA training officer & several highly trained WORM technicians, they oversee the testing of a team of brave astronauts.
The roster includes Spaghettini from Italy, Squishta from Romania, Legusano from Colombia, Squashimi from Japan, Slogoshki from Poland, other WORMS from Puerto Rico & Zambia, & Selma WORM, who is actually a chicken dressed as a WORM.
Five WORMS are ultimately chosen as the crew of the Wiggleprise. Their mission is administered from a control center based on SESAME STREET, led by Professor Albert Einslime. It is this same crew of WORMS that can be seen in the recurring WORMS in Space sketches.
Einslime & WASA returned to SESAME STREET in 2007 to launch SLIMEY’s girlfriend Glo WORM into space. As before, WORM technology couldn’t sufficiently launch the rocket without some help from a Muppet; in this case the number 0, who saved the day by standing in for the final number of the COUNTdown.
