I don't think we should have timeline pages that precede 1954. I know we have performer births and song debuts before that, but so what? I think the Muppet Wiki timeline should be Muppet relevant only, and the Muppets date back to their first public appearance outside of Jim Henson's head in 1954. Also... 1928? I mean, c'mon. — Scott (talk) 03:08, 24 September 2006 (UTC)

I don't know if I agree entirely. I do see your main point, as being a bit excessive, but I'd push it at least back to 1936. I'd say Jim Henson's year of birth is pretty darn Muppet relevant, even if they wouldn't debut until 54. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 03:10, 24 September 2006 (UTC)
Or maybe there can be a pre-1954 timeline page for relative events like the birth of important puppeteers, writers, directors, and producers. By "important", I mean people who worked for The Muppets for a long amount of time and have contributed to a lot of Henson productions. People like Frank Oz, Jerry Juhl, Don Shalin, Jon Stone, and Joe Raposo, among others. --Minor muppetz 03:56, 24 September 2006 (UTC)
I think a pre-1954 page of birthdays would be a better idea than a random assortment of pages that only have one date each. -- Danny (talk) 10:41, 24 September 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, I just don't see the interest for a 1936 page with just Henson's birth on it. I mean, yeah it's significant, but anything beyond that one fact is a stretch. — Scott (talk) 21:58, 26 September 2006 (UTC)
How about Pre-1954?? It can be expanded to hold anything found to be relevant that way, not just birthdays. -- Wendy (talk) 16:22, 28 September 2006 (UTC)
Lovely! I think that's a great solution. I like that you did the redirects from all of the year pages, so everything will link to the pre-1954 page. Nice. -- Danny (talk) 16:42, 28 September 2006 (UTC)
That's perfect -- a great solution, Wendy! — Scott (talk) 16:59, 28 September 2006 (UTC)
