Oscar the Grouch and a Young Michael Jackson Hanging Out on Sesame Street

I wonder if they were able to give each other some hair care tips.

The delightful photo posted above is a publicity still from the 1978 Sesame Street TV special A Special Sesame Street Christmas, where a young Michael Jackson gave Oscar the Grouch a book about ghosts.

In 1979, the special was nominated for an Emmy Award in the category of Outstanding Children’s Program. However, the program lost to that year’s other Sesame Street Christmas show, Christmas Eve on Sesame Street.

You can watch the scene below.
