  • The main image for the Ábrete Sésamo page shows an image from the Abre-te Sésamo package. I am not sure if it wants to be deleted, but I know it should; may I ask your permission to?

    • Well, it's definitely not an image from the 2007 Portuguese dub, but it is clearly Portuguese (and was even uploaded to label it as a Portuguese postcard; looks like 1970s to me). So it doesn't need to be deleted, it's just on the wrong page. Danny (the site's co-founder) added it and didn't look too closely at the page text.

      I'd say start a forum talk page just to park the image until we can find an appropriate page to put it on.

      Of course not. It's from the dub package from the late-1970s.

    • The page you linked to doesn't cover that, though. If you have dates or other details and want to start a page, we could house the postcard pic there.

  • Hey, Andrew! I already posted this on the Forum, but I wanted to mention it to you. Somebody just uploaded the Sam & Friends clip of Singin' in the Rain on YouTube, and I was hoping somebody would be able to slow it down to see who the original singer is. But besides that, I was curious if it was recorded for the show, because it's only about a minute, and they don't finish the song. Plus, the character misses words and sneezes, which wouldn't have been on a pre-existing record. Is there a chance that this song might be an original soundtrack that Jim made, and not an actual record from somebody else, like they normally did?

    • Intriguing query! No answers right now (I had a sound editing app which could alter speed, but the license expired). It could be something original, but we know what a variety of records or other audio sources (from radio or TV) Jim utilized. So I'm thinking it might be part of a novelty single nobody's identified, or even a bit from some radio or TV show (I agree given the sneeze and word alterations that if it was a record, it wasn't a straight cover).

      I may dig through Google's archives of Billboard just in case I find anything in the likely time frame.

    • Thanks! If you haven't seen it, it's here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cxq_I7vAqdE

  • From the perspective of character actor connections, I thought you might appreciate that we now have Dirty Harry on the wiki.

  • Understand that Academy Awards is an electoral race to trophy to "best film" in any category and deserves to stay.

  • There are now 2 different pages for the character Fountain of Riddles. One of them I created when I first created my wiki account. Perhaps it would be best to move information from the second entry to the first and then delete the second one.

  • Hey, Andrew! Now that the CD for I Am Big Bird is here, I added some stuff and fixed other stuff. Can you take a look at what I did? I wasn't sure if we should include every name, but I haven't seen the film yet, so I didn't know who should get pages. I put in everything that's in the disc booklet, like I did for Los Muppets, and then I thought I'd ask you. The DVD comes out on Aug. 11!

    • I like it! It all looks fine to me. For the name inclusions you have, that looks fine given that we sometimes go into more detail on album credits for the record, even if likely the only person to get a page would be Joshua Johnson. I still need to make pages for a lot of those Los Muppets folk (and I owe you an e-mail soon anyway).

      I'm looking forward to the DVD! My friend Harry (who grew up in Boston and still refers to Carroll as "Ed Spinney," because he saw some of his local shows).

  • Do you know if there was a second version of t for toes sketch? The one currently shown is shown on episode 1448. Saw it on youtube. That clip originates from the early 70s. I heard there was a second version that came out around possibly 1976. Do you happen to have any information about this?

  • Is there a way to find the letter of the day for every episode it appeared. For example, I wanted to find all of the episodes that had the letter T and the letter S for the letter of the day throughout the 70s and the 80s. Is there a master list of all Sesame St sketches? How did you find the sketch information?

    • There's no master list. Just cycle through the episode guides. We note sponsors (they didn't always call them letter of the day then) in boxes for every episode when known. For the full guides, the info comes from a mixture of circulating copies (DVDs, streaming video, VHS tapes people made of episodes, etc.) and, when noted, CTW archives or PBS station episode info. The episode guide category covers every episode for which we have a full breakdown (for some with just bits and pieces, often without sponsor info, they're all in the episodes category).

      For S and T for example, the pages only note the first time they sponsored an episode, But you can check What Links Here to see other pages (note that this includes characters, sketches, or episodes pages where it was featured but not the sponsor/letter of the day). The best suggestion I can give you is to use Google or another external search engine to search Muppet Wiki, use "Sesame Street Episode Guide," and include the letter you're looking for. You'll have to weed out some results, but that's probably the best way (and again, keep in mind we are still missing episodes).

  • Hey! So, I was going through my old wall messages and I found one where we discussed working on some of the Sesame English episodes we haven't made into tables. Do you still have episodes of it?

    • Hi! I changed computers again recently, so I had to check to make sure that folder transferred over, and also figure out *where* it was (I had to use two backups). I still have those episodes. Let me know here or via e-mail which ones you're interested in (the old list still applies, I don't think any got mislaid) and I'll figure out how best to share them.

    • If could send all but "Exercise Emergencies" (which is on YT) and "Family Acrobatics," that'd be good; all the rest are guide-less.
