  • Hey, do you remember where the January 1984 date comes from on Sally Ride? It was in the first edit in the article history. I couldn't remember when you and Danny made your first CTW Archives visit, but I seem to recall that there's a photo in there somewhere. I can check when I get home, but I figured I'd put the question out to you in the meantime.

    The reason I'm asking is because SW provided me with short descriptions of her segments, but the episode numbers I got don't make sense. It's possible their system is incorrect, but I'm trying to cover all possibilities.

    • This would have been before my actual visit but after Danny's first, when he sent scanned material. I know the picture came from that batch, so it's in one of those folders.

      I'll try to check later but I have some appointments and another writing project of my own on priority, so it could be a couple of days.

    • Okay, thanks. I heard back anyway, and there was a miscommunication with numbers. So, we're all good. Thanks again, and good luck with your project!

  • There are 2 profile pages for the Handyman. Seems someone added a second. Same info but different pic. I suggest keep the new one and delete the second. The one with "The" in his entry name.

  • YOu deleted my new template. If an episode page has no sourced information, we delete it anyway

  • Hey, do you happen to know which episode(s) of Dog City feature Tramp? I own them all on Amazon, and I'm skimming through a few, but I'm having trouble finding him.

    I got a screenshot for Lady and the Tramp and I'd like to get one for the character page.

    • Aw, woojums!

      Screenshotting from Amazon is okay so long as your connection is good to get a quality stream. You have to do some cropping after hitting PRTSCRN, but it works out okay.

      Nice job on the recent album credits additions recently by the way. I have a few high res upgrades of covers to add, but they need to be touched up a bit first.

    • Thanks. Dave Conner needs expansion, so filling in those gaps lays the groundwork. Plus more musicians, arrangers, and I'm tempted to create a page for Ed Blainey, the sound effects man on Havin' Fun with Ernie and Bert (since those tracks were reused and he got credit on the 10th anniversary album for them too, I think I can get away with it; he worked on Superman and Gangbusters, thus my interest). Someone coming up very soon has a 1776 connection. And if you missed it (I still need to work it into his page), Paul Shaffer played keyboards on Fair Is Fair.

      I'm also finding unexpected people in the "special thanks" sections. Musicians were lumped in there early on, along with production assistants, research, legal, etc. and in some cases, the Muppet Workshop folk who built props or Muppets. But a few are outside of that. Sammy Cahn is thanked for one of the Christmas albums (and found evidence he did songs for Sesame, just no specific titles). A certain Janet Gari turns out to be the daughter of Eddie Cantor (star of film, vaudeville, and radio) and did some children's audio stuff of her own (she has a website, I'm considering e-mailing her). Scott Shukat, thanked on a few albums, was an agent/manager mostly to singers and songwriters, including Alan Menken and Carol Hall. And Penny Ekstein, who keeps cropping up for different album design/visual stuff, went on to create the Pillow People. In most cases likely not worth solo pages, but neat to know.

  • Thought you might like to know that Raggedy Ann is now on the wiki :)

  • Hey Andrew, guess what? I'm going to make a full uncut version of Sesame Street Episode 1 (1969) in DVD QUALITY!!!! How's that?

  • Hi. Thanks for your edit to the "Episode 106: Veggietones".

    I interpreted the word "stop" as "inhibit" while editing that page because I think it needs good interpretations.

    And also, you interpreted to another meaning as "prevent".

    Thank you.

  • Hi.Thanks for your edit to the "Don't Check Out" page.

    I request that Elmo and Cookie Monster were originally lived in the US, so they visit the UK (Furchester Hotel).


    Thank you.

  • I request that these templates be flagged as infoboxes since I can't so do myself (and to prevent Wikia from saying OMG YOU DIDN'T PUT INFOBOXES ON THESE PAGES!!):

    I also noticed there's no Firstbox... but what's the replacement as mentioned on its page?

      Loading editor
    • I had that odd thing pop up re formatting infoboxes too, but it went away. I'm not sure it really matters whether we tag them or not, for our purposes. I'd suggest bringing it up on Current Events, so the admins can figure out what to do as the group.

      As for the first box, it's not even applicable on many pages (like songs) since the adjusted song box includes room to specify. For anything else, to the best of my knowledge, some variation of the EKAbox is used, but I can't even find an example that uses it (since it mostly did just apply to songs; very few stand-alone skits get pages at all).

    • Don't worry about the infobox flags.

    • K den. I guess I just wanted the website to not go ballistic over trivial bull like that.

  • Aleal, why did you block Veggifan on this wiki? I looked up the edit history on Beautiful Day Monster (http://muppet.wikia.com/index.php?title=Beautiful_Day_Monster&diff=829339&oldid=829211) and then I looked up Veggifan (http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/User:Veggifan) and it says he's blocked. I don't want to chat anymore with people on this wiki, because I fear that persisting them with having rare videos they don't have (i.e. the original Near and Far skit) would get me blocked.

    • Those people are administrators (if you're not sure who's an administrator, they're all listed here) who can see that the clips aren't useful. They don't always have time to explain what I just did, that the clips don't help or belong on the pages. (And if you always check summaries, you either missed or ignored my own edit summary on Rubber Duckie (song) explaining why the same clip was removed, as is made clear here). Re-adding something removed by an administrator is never wise, whether they explain or not.

    • Yeah, I see. Check my profile now. I have a bunch of old Sesame Street clips on there.
