  • I saw your note below. I think I've sent you some e-mails lately, and I didn't know you were offline for a while. I'm glad to see you back, and I'll write some more soon!

  • Heya! Your edit summary here reads to me like you kept a notebook from watching the MuppetToons when they were still online and wrote down the credits at the end. Am I reading that right? I ask because Craig can't remember whether or not he wrote some of that stuff.

    • Hi. I've been offline for most of the last two weeks (couldn't afford the bill) but exactly, thus the summary. I wasn't able to transcribe every episode (I only saw "The Stream" and "Net Congestion"; judging from Jerry Nelson and Frank Oz' names in my list, the latter is where Shemin's credit comes from, he may or may not have written others but probably), but at the time I had a project trying to track credits of animated webseries (there was a boom in them at the time). I know I missed a few additional puppeteers and don't think I even thought of designers, but writers were easy to track. For awhile, waaaay back, Awn.com (Animation World Network) actually had a regular section reviewing relevant series as they put out new episodes, so they had short blurbs and episode summaries, but they're gone now. Frankly, I'm not entirely certain the last two titles ever even made it over the internet (it was pretty common at the time for these series to have "Next episode coming soon!" promotions... and it never came). If I can figure out via Archive.org or something where the original webseries reviews/update column was from, I might be able to suss it out when I feel better (in addition to nearly two weeks web deprivation, also getting over a cold and right now very queasy).

      I did find one news post though (April 2000), no new credits, but a little more background including a clearer timeline indicator (no dates at all are on that page) and statement of exactly what the digital plans were: http://www.awn.com/news/muppetoons-3d

    • Okay, cool. I wanted to be sure I understood the edit description correctly. So, Craig's credit comes from your own notes, right?

    • Yep, the edit summary means exactly what I wrote. I also kept some of it in a word doc of that sort of thing. At the time, Scifi.com also had Seeing Ear Theater, which included radio-style audio dramas mixed with old radio broadcasts of scifi-themes or Asimov, Bradbury, etc. Those had the credits on the webpages, so I printed those out and later compiled. They go back to at least 2000 now or maybe 2001, but I have a few still in an old folder (easier to find in some cases than the notebooks; I go through those periodically but a few by now have just torn up, plus just did some cleaning and dusting so a lot of those that remain were shoved in different crevices). If I find the dates, I might be able to figure out when on archive.org to check AWN.com to try to find those listings (which noted the exact dates when the web shorts went online).

  • Hi! Somebody just uploaded the back cover of the Sesam (soundtrack) album, and they have the performers' names, and some text describing what the songs and skits are about. So I just wanted to mention it to you in case you feel like playing around with some Swedish (which is almost as much fun as playing around in Sweden), and we might be able to identify more tracks on the album!

    And I'm going crazy for next Friday, along with everybody else in Muppet fandom. Still no sign of a Spanish soundtrack, but then I can't see one for Frozen, either. I wonder if they stopped doing them for the US market?

  • Hi! I just caught the end credits of a Christian sports movie called Reggie's Prayer, and Emilio Delgado is in it as a "Stadium Announcer". A bunch of other people are in it, like Pat Morita and M.C. Hammer, and Rosey Grier and other sports people. I made a place for it in case you or anybody else runs across it. It was a nice surprise, as I'm working on a whole new set of Australian CD's that have come out since last year (20 so far!), and they're making some more next month. What's the story on SS down under? Are they still showing the show, or some form of it? I find it interesting that as we're moving to download-only albums, they're keeping the Sony Wonder era in print on a new series from Universal Australia, but the funny thing is that they're using Koch-era covers, and some of them were never even on Koch here, so they look like US front covers, except for the few titles that are spelled "favourite"!

  • Hi! Did we know that Frank Langella is going to be in Muppets Most Wanted? The book and CD set came out early, and he's credited with being a minister. (I won't say more than that, in case you're trying to avoid spoilers.) I just wanted to let you know, in case you wanted to do the honors and make him a page. I only know him from playing William Paley in Good Night and Good Luck, which I highly recommend if you've never seen it.

    I'm really glad they released this book and CD set a month early, to help generate interest in the movie. I thought it was really odd last time when they didn't put out the book and CD set until the video releases came out.

    P.S. I would love to find out who David Jeremiah is, since he came back to narrate the new one. Have you ever seen his name before? I'm pretty sure he's not this guy!

  • Hi Mr. Aleal,

    Last time I checked the list of Muppet Characters it said there were 2,785 but now there are 2,787. Could you tell me what characters have been added? It is for my own Muppet picture list that I am updating.

    • Hi! There's no way to track additions to specific categories only. The best way to check that is through New Pages: http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/Special:NewPages

      It shows everything that's been added recently. You may have to comb through a couple of pages, but you can usually tell by the article title which are character pages (like Leprechauns) and which aren't. Not every new character page has pictures though.

  • Hi! Are we putting the categories on things that are still in development? I saw where Scott took it out.

    Also, I saw that the Toyota commercials are also in Spanish! Do you know if they were shown today during the game in other countries? I'm also wondering if they show dubbed commercials for people who have SAP (second audio program) buttons on their TV sets.

  • Hi! Where does the information on Hardware Gonzo come from? Primarily a. the name (it sounds pretty specific, like we pulled it from somewhere), b. that it was designed by Frith, and c. the tagline used as the caption on the photo.

    • The first two came from the old Henson.com Feature Creature section (I'll see if I can find a URL so I can plumb archive.org for an old version, plus there may be a few we never got around to adding).

      The third, I *thought* was on the side of the truck. Clearly it isn't, at least in the movie, so I'll check to see if that too was Creature Feature, *or* I also used the storybook of the movie extensively (I think that's where I got the picture) so it may have come from there. I'll get back to you. The third possibility is it comes from nowhere (since checking the history, the caption comes from 2006, and back then, we were still more apt to use joke captions, before becoming more careful as far as accuracy was concerned).

    • Ah, yes, I should have guessed! Thanks, I found all three on the FC archive. I'll add the link :)
