Hey Aleal, do you know what Sesame Street episode from Season 12 or 15 had Elmo with his original voice performed by Brian Muehl? Minor muppetz said he once e-mailed Muehl, and Muehl said he performed Elmo 3-4 or 5-6 times (not accurate) but only remembers one specific scene where he performed Elmo.
This is a compilation of all the pre-Kevin Clash/Early Elmo clips I could find on the Internet. Most of these had Jerry Nelson as Elmo (except the first one where Elmo was performed by Kathy Mullen). The only clip I have from Season 12 was the one News Flash skit where Kermit discusses with Cookie Monster not to be afraid of the first day of school (I assume Brian Muehl performed Elmo on that one as it's officially from Season 12, but because Elmo was one of the indistinct talking BG monsters on this skit, it's hard for y'all to make out who performed him there). I'll go talk to some people on YouTube and ask them if they have any Season 12 or 15 clips of Elmo with his old voice by Brian Muehl. I'm not pursuing this topic anymore on Muppet Wiki, because I'm afraid I'll get blocked if I keep up with discussing the same topic over and over again with others.
Hi! Yeah, definitely nothing wrong with having an opinion on that, but as you can see from the talk page history, this has been argued over for years. Sometimes we'll go with majority consensus on performer, but for something like this, at this point, either footage of a really inarguable voice comparison (most of us haven't seen those Play With Me segments, and the early clips, she says so little, it's hard to judge and probably wasn't the same performer) or something like a resume, interview or explicit "Yeah, Rudman was Ernestine, at least at such and such time" statement from a crew member is needed to really resolve it.
Exactly. I know there were some mentions for some things that David was involved in was in a conversation between him and another user (via email response). I wish somebody could do that. I'm just saying that, too. But that's just me.
Also, we're far past the point where we've been doing this long enough that I'm now creating articles for topics we already had. Bart (Muppets Tonight), which, after the fact, saw that you'd brought the topic up in 2008 after I created the article in 2007.
Yeah, it seems they met and hung out behind the scenes, and on camera, may have had an exchange when everyone was sitting per the "We just sit and wait when someone else comes on" policy of the time (that final shot with all the guests, Joan Rivers, and co-host Peter Cook all together is both exciting and kind of sad; I'm hoping footage will eventually surface online, because I'd love to create a Peter Cook page to keep Dudley Moore company).
So that and three songs used is enough for a page, but I wasn't sure how best to make it look pretty.
Hola, Andrew! I was wandering around YouTube, and I found a video of the Muppet Babies theme in Spanish, playing on a record. I don't know anything about Muppet Babies, so would you be able to tell if this was the real theme, or a cover version? If it's the real theme, we may have found a Spanish Muppet Babies LP that I never knew about! The video is here. Gracias!
Exciting find! It's the Castilian version from Spain (not Mexico), and matches in lyrics and orchestration etc. although a couple of the voices sound different (Kermit sounds raspy enough for Rowlf). I'm pretty sure it's real, but so far, I can't find a reliable database for Spain's records the way I have for German, Italian, French, etc. YouTube links to an album of kids TV themes which was never an actual record, just a CD (and now downloads).
Right now, I found one site which sometimes tracks Spanish records but mostly based on what's currently on eBay. I suspect (like with the Brazilian Muppet Show album) finding a copy on Ebay is our best bet (or finding a Spanish record database, as I said), since otherwise, the search terms are too broad.
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.
