Episode Description:

Just as the experimental cinematography and off-camera ad-libbing of The Ernie Kovacs Show revolutionized the television medium for Johnny Carson, David Letterman, and many others, Kovacs On The Corner cast the mold for such kids' shows as Sesame Street and Mister Rogers' Neighborhood.Its elegantly simple premise was that of Ernie Kovacs and Edie Adams (playing themselves) strolling around an imaginary neighborhood populated by characters both mundane and unusual. There was Luigi the barber and Pete the cop, but there were also three street-sweepers who would unexpectedly switch their brooms for musical instruments and perform a song (played by the Dave Appell Trio). The oddest character was a humanoid dog named Albert, who could only interact with Ernie and the children because he couldn't be seen or heard by adults...an obvious precursor to Mr. Snuffleupagus. And perhaps the most unique "character" was the camera itself, which allowed for a running dialogue between actor and viewer and again became a staple for future children's programming
