  • Hey Aleal!

    I just wanted to point out that there actually is a Wikipedia page for Michael and Patricia Silversher and I think it should be added to their page on here.

    Here it is:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silversher_%26_Silversher

    • Hi! Feel free to add it yourself. But the particular link on that page went to nothing (and it doesn't look like the page was deleted, just that it never existed under that title).

      Just use this formula: {{wikipedia|Silversher & Silversher}}

      Hi!

      Okay. I will make sure I do that.

  • Hey, Andrew! I know I told you that the color clip of Singin' in the Rain was done by Edie Adams. And then I was looking at the list of other Sam and Friends skits, and I was thinking. Would it be beyond the scope of this wiki to assemble a page of all of the original records that they lip-synched? Looking through the descriptions for the various skits, sometimes I can't tell if they're lip-synching a record, or doing an original skit. I think it would be neat to make a page of all of the original records that they used, with pictures of course, kind of like Bob's discography. What do you think?

    • Well, I started Sandbox:Records Used on Sam and Friends just so I could put all my information in one place to see how many records we know about. Can you think of any that I missed?

    • By the way, I love all of the people you've been adding!

  • Unless the character was recast at any point, if you have access to "Being Elmo," there's scenes of her training with Kevin that you can get a screengrab of.

    • Thanks for the heads up! I don't have access at present, but now I'll know where to look. I'll also use this to park a theory (forums aren't as good as talk pages for just info dumping).

      Boris Scheigam worked for years with a puppeteer named Evelyne Horenfeld. http://www.planete-jeunesse.com/staff-7059-evelyne-horenfeld.html

      She even co-wrote La Minute des Petites Sorcières, a French kids puppets show, and current copyright notices give that to "Boris et Evelyne Scheigam."

      So my assumption is that Boris Scheigam probably married Evelyne Horenfeld, but I can't find anything specific enough to cite. So just putting it here so I don't lose it.

  • The main page says Sesame Street is in season 44, just to let you know. :-)

  • Hey, Andrew! I just came in to add the Muppet single they're going to make with Jack White, and I noticed that we just crossed 29,000 articles. Can you tell when we hit it? I was just curious because I've been gone from the wiki for a while. I usually make a comment when we hit another 1,000 pages, but I can't find when we hit 28,000 either. I'll have to look in my history. Anyway, I just wanted to say hi!

    • Hello! I owe you a detailed e-mail soon.

      We hit 28,000 in June 2015 (and you started a thread). I forget exactly when we hit 29,000 (we didn't mark the date and now I wish we had), but it was recently, late February (I'm thinking around the 20th or later). Both Shane and I had been adding pages for that reason, and a lot of other folks have been active, with new Muppet episodes, viral stuff, old Sesames surfacing via trades, new HBO episodes, and filling old holes (i.e. Ziegfeld Follies).

      Some pages you might find interesting:

      And plenty more on those lines. Oh, and The Egg and I (turns out Nate found the reference ages ago but thought it was for The King and I).

      Hi again!

  • i am sorry to bother you but why did you delete june foray for?

    • Note the edit summary I left: "Not a complete list, just of actors who have pages on Muppet Wiki; June Foray doesn't"

      It's not a credit list, just a list of people who already have pages because they worked on Muppet projects or Sesame Street etc, who also worked on Gummi Bears. That doesn't apply to June Foray (although I do love her work).

    • when would muppet wiki gonna have a chatroom?

    • did you receive my message?

    • We don't really use one here. There was one ages ago but it wasn't used more than once or twice (we tend to focus our communication on research or the articles and do our socializing elsewhere).

      Also, unless it's been a few days, you don't usually need to ask someone if they received your message (we often do other things before heading back to the Wiki screen). Your last message was sent while I was typing my own reply.

  • Andrew, I couldn't help but notice that a change to my message wall page had been made by you. Yet, I can't seem to find what it is. I don't see anything new on it. Just old messages. Perhaps you'd care to enlighten me?

      Loading editor
    • Nothing to your actual wall. I've been cleaning up old links in archived versions of community and talk pages going to deleted pages (either unlinking or correcting old Sandboxes to the current page) because it throws off the Wanted Pages. If you're really curious, you can see what was changed just by clicking the "diff" option in Recent Changes (or the time stamp from my user contributions).

  • Hi Andrew,

      Is it okay if I add this link to the Rubber Duckie article? https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=_xv1pcQ4G8k
    

    I put this original version together as a full version the best I could. But I don't want to put in the link in the article unless you say it's okay. I believe Sesame Workshop didn't put this version in the Season 1 list on the Old School: Volume 1 and 40 Years of Sunny Days DVDs because this original version was rare and they practically couldn't find it anywhere for them to put it in these two DVDs.

  • Hi Aleal,

       I just read your warning message you just sent me last night about "Stop asking people for rare videos they don't have." I agreed to it, so I promise you I won't go on anymore about the rare videos on this wiki. And I'm afraid if I keep up with these comments regarding the same problems, I'd be blocked from editing or commenting on this wiki. While I'd rather focus on other things on this wiki, I'd also rather try looking for the rare clips around YouTube figuring it out myself rather than messaging people on this wiki. Sound good to you, Aleal?

  • Hey, do you have any special tricks that could help find info on Sara Compton? I tried various Google and Google Books searches (their newspaper search doesn't appear to be what it used to be), but couldn't find anything. A birthdate would be nice, but I don't even know if she's still alive (although I couldn't find an obit).

      Loading editor
    • Unfortunately, no. She doesn't seem to have featured in magazine profiles, isn't even mentioned in 40 Years, nothing matching in Newspaperarchive.com (from the limited free search anyway), and she's not in any of the broadcasting periodical databases I use (both too recent and, as a writer for PBS shows, not really what they usually cover). Not having a clue as to, say, what state she was originally from or which school she attended also limits (many university special collection databases and so on are searchable but only within that system, so no Google hits). We may have to try to see who, among the writers and folks she worked with, is still around and can be contacted online.

      The only other tidbit, which you probably already found, is that she (or someone with the same name, but I'm fairly certain it's our Sara Compton) wrote or co-wrote a few Choose Your Own Adventure titles. Still, I'll keep checking (some of the library databases may have something).

    • Cool, thanks for checking. I'll see what I can do in terms of reaching out to her peers.
