  • Hi! I saw some of the songs that you've been adding. Did you get some of the Dutch records?

    Also, let me know if you can add any records to the page I started at Sandbox:Records Used on Sam and Friends, or if you need help identifying anything you already know something about.

    • As exciting as that would be, no (although I have found non-Muppet German "hoerspiele" albums in El Paso). I'm mostly checking the album pages for sufficient info to fill redlinks (when the song was reused again and again on albums, as often happened). Sometimes checking Discogs.com for album backs too.

      For "Waarom Waarom Waarom" (with no real description on the source album beyond title translation), I found the song on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p1Fv-kMeLlU

      I then found the cache of a Dutch lyric site with an entry for the song (they've since pulled them, probably copyright reasons) and which I could check with the video to see that they matched. Then ran through translator. Other questions included "Why are there waves at sea," "Why can't I smoke cigars," and "Why is there no pudding today?"

      Re Sam and Friends, just the info I already posted. Looks like we have a source for "A Horse Named Bill" (since Grant Baciocco checked it with Karen Falk and posted the full song track which matches), just be nice to actually find one from the album (in this case, Bob Gibson's Offbeat Folk Songs, 1956).

    • So can I add that album, or did you need more information? I didn't know that Riverside did any folk albums. I think they're now owned by the people who own Fantasy and a bunch of other jazz labels, and it would be fun to try to find it.

      Also, has anybody ever attempted any airdates for Sam and Friends, or is that lost forever? I've always wondered if the DC TV Guide had anything listed. Was the show done live? I've had a crazy idea to try to put them in some kind of order, especially the color ones. It's kind of neat that he happened to land at an NBC affiliate, since NBC had color way before the other networks.

      Anyway, I was just thinking of stuff to do, and I owe you a long e-mail, too!

  • 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).

    • 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.
