Who was that little yellow man painted on the side of the glass?

I saw this on here like two years ago but I can't find it now. Anyway, I'm trying to remember the name of these little television spots (it may have been a full show, but I don't thinks so) that featured a little yellow man painted on the side of a glass. It was for children. Anyone?

Best answer: Teeny Little Super Guy, a group of spots made for Sesame Street.

And now I've got his theme music stuck in my head. 'You can't tell a hero by his size—I'm just a teeny little super guy (ohh yeahhhh!)'

Piggyback question for the Sesame Street lovers- does anyone know a place to download (or any info about) this spot:

Mom tells little kid to go to the store. "Get a loaf of bread, a stick of butter, and a container of milk" Kid repeats this over and over to funky music. Eventually gets to the store and gets the stuff.

I thought the kid had a certain name, and in any case, I'd LOVE to see it again.

fake, see this thread. We've tried and tried, and never been able to find the thing.

Thanks Gleuschk. I see it had been posted to YouTube and subsequently removed... though there are dozens of other sesame clips. Drat.

Whoa, two mysteries solved in one day. I remember both of these, and the teeny little super guy has been driving me buts for a long time. For some reason I thought he was claymation though.

A loaf of bread...
Man, thanks, that thing puts me straight back thirty-plus years ago. Wow.

A crafty vixen has created a pretty nifty tribute to TLSG.

OMG!! I just ADORED Teeny Little Super Guy.

I still know the whole song by heart, learned during many a Sesame Street-watching session in my nanny years.

Thank you all for all the links!! This made my day.

OK, that YouTube link helped me stumble across "The Alligator King", and I'm forever grateful! You rock, man!
