Down Memory Lane With Harry On “Ain’t It Cool”

Harry’s waxing nostalgic on on the Nerdist Channel’s Ain’t it Cool with Harry Knowles this week, with the Harry puppet’s visit to Monsterpalooza and meeting John Landis and Caroll Spinney — Big Bird! — sending him off on a reverie about his childhood. And you’ll meet Harry’s doll Vietnam Andy.

  • I watched this whole video with a big dumb smile on my face. I didn’t know that Harry looked like that in real-life (love the beard), but when I first saw his Muppet, an ear-to-ear grin appeared on my face. And seeing the guy behind Big Bird was great. This feature is great; I’ve never seen it before, but I hope to see a lot more. Thanks for bringing it to my attention Nerdist!

    Absolutely wonderful.

    P.S. Concerning Landis, there’s a really cool video online from John Landis’ son that should apply here, concerning AICN’s forte (superhero news). Max Landis, his son, recounts the Superman arc “The Death and Return of Superman” simply to illustrate some storytelling points (including a great point at the end of the video he learned from his father). It’s hilarious, and features cameos by Elijah Wood, Mandy Moore, Simon Pegg, Andy Samberg and others. Fantastically funny, and actually informative:
