The AtariAge "Did you know?" trivia box, on the Main Page, sometimes displays the trivia that the Atari 2600 had 2 cartridges with voice.  

 

One was Quadrun (Which I believe says Quadrun Quadrun Quadrun quickly on the title screen, when it first appears)

 

The other is:   Open Sesame

I've never heard of this cartridge.  I've looked it up under the AtariAge 2600 Rarity Guide (searched by word:  open) and there seem to be 3 listings for it.  

Unfortunately, the ROM is not available and there are no reviews or information about this title.  

 

My question to the forum members is this ...

 

What is the voice synthesis in Open Sesame?  

What does it say and where ?

When you listen carefully, you can make out a very crippled 'Open, Sesame!'
