I don't have access to a copy of the special from the 1970s (either the '77 CBC or '78 HBO airing) so I can't check some of the things in the first column, hopefully someone with access to the early cut can confirm what is/isn't in there. The Paley Center has a copy, but that's not really easily available.
As far as I can find, each volume has 15 episodes... which would add up to 30 episodes (which is the total for Season 1). The press release boasts 29 Rowlf the Dog appearances (which is the total for season 1 since he wasn't in episode #1). I'm not sure what order the episodes appear in, and if episodes 1-15 are on Volume 1 and 16-30 are on Volume 2.
Yes, it's up to date. Feel free to do with it as you see fit. I created it as an experiment to see where the biggest gaps in our information are (i.e. much of the 1980s) and it's shocking how little we've uncovered of unlucky season #13.
I was looking at this recently and I noticed that season 13 had the least amount of episode pages (though we've recently gotten more thanks to the trusted sources providing episode numbers for episodes that only had sandbox pages) while season 6 only has one episode guide compiled from a video source though otherwise does have pages for every season.
I know where you're coming from, as I usually prefer bigger images as well. But I believe the smaller pic suits this page better, as the white space around the character scales her down just enough to look better alongside the other characters. Changing it back for now... but feel free to discuss!
Yeah, that's why I wanted to notify/run it through you guys; I did feel the lower-quality pic had more white space consistent with the other pics... horizontally. Vertically, Finchen looks worse here. I don't know.
Hey, thanks for helping to clean up some of the stuff in Category:Sandbox. You probably noticed me nuking some really old stuff in there yesterday. We had upwards of 130 or so sandbox pages up until recently, so I figured it was time we started going through them. 👍
Yeah, those two (along with Sandbox:Muppeteers) were my attempts to play around with timelines (things other wikis with more limited scopes have done somewhat well to show the evolution of cast/crews over time). But I'm not sure if they're worth the upkeep or if they're even best for showing 50+ years of data in a meaningful way (nor is the start/stop dates of individuals always as clear cut and simple). Sometimes complex information just can't be boiled down so simply. They were fun experiments but I'm not sure if there's value in keeping them. I think something like Sandbox:First and last performances may be a better approach to capturing that idea.
There's some interesting code in there that might be useful someday, but you're probably right. I'm going to delete them for now and list them on your userpage (sans redlinks) in case we need to undelete them at some point.
Not sure if there's any value to keeping Sandbox:The Muppets (2015) writers and directors and Sandbox:The Muppets episodes that didn't feature main characters and moving them out of the sandbox. They were created while the show was still running to track credits week-to-week, but now they seem kind of unnecessary given the limited run of the show.
Also Sandbox:Old category portals may be better suited in the Muppet Wiki Archives than in the sandbox (if kept at all).
Hey, I updated the div id tags you added to the Jimmy Dean table. I'm gonna add it to our Manual of Style, but basically spaces, special characters like apostrophes, and sometimes capital letters can throw off the anchor links.
Hi, I know this is probably a long shot, but would you happen to have this video archived somewhere? I've found the original link it came from, but it doesn't exist now obviously. There's also this page that seems to have it but it literally just redirects to the formentioned link.
Thanks! I'm sure there's potential there - I figured there'd be interest in tracking/cataloging them when I saw that we had some episode pages that had longer descriptions of the post-credit tag than of the whole episode -- plus it's a memorable element and bit from the show.
I don't check that email often, but I'll check it now.
