Nah, i bid on a 40th celebration official package on ebay, but that was lost in the mail.. i got the dvd that was inside it afterwards. But further nothing.. I like to know what the original german things are.. the specials or other things on dvd... I havent seen anything from that sadley enough. Yes they miss a lot....
I also am waiting for poehee 2... the book and insert dvd from the first sesamstraat's. The director told us in 2010 he wanted to make and ublish something like that.. but sofar nothing :S
All the stuff I mention in the second paragraph can be watched online! Try Sesamstrasse.de for the anniversary episode and TV-movie two-parter!
As far as that "40th celebration official package" goes, were you maybe trying to get the official press kit off of ebay? The hard copy does have a DVD accompanying it, but you can download the book digitally as well (right here: PDF-file), if that's what you're missing!
That's not exactly how it works. The JHC stuff isn't included much here because it has virtually no direct relation to the Muppets (see here). The Wikis cover them (HA! Wiki and HDPS Wiki) are filling a niche we don't cover.
This new Wikia doesn't seem to affiliated with us (not created by frequent contributors), despite that it's borrowing info and images from this Wiki. So there's no reason to delete the pages when we have them and have a reason for having them, and I doubt we'd delete them because a new fan Wiki turned up that covers the same info we have.
Hi, Julian! Actually, right now Hot air balloon is specifically about the one in The Great Muppet Caper, and it's like Beauregard's taxi or Fozzie's Studebaker. So the picture you added doesn't really fit... but it's adorable, and I understand (especially since it's lowercase) that the page is akward. Given that the specific hot air balloon was merchandised and featured heavily in things like glassware and so on, I'd like to keep it on its own page. But if you have a suggestion for how to better title it so we can also have a page for hot air balloons in general (ala Ice cream), let me know. It's always a joy when you pop in!
Hi! May I have permission to use your awesome SherlockHemlock image, modified to include an iPad, for a school presentation that I'd like to post on the web? Here is a link to the modifed image I made.
I wasn't sure who I needed to get permission from so I figured I'd start with you. If I need Disney/Jim Henson approval could you please advise how I go about doing that? It's super cute and appricate your help. Thanks, Jeanne
Hey, Julian! I've had a concept in mind and wonder if you could help, since I see you're online again, sort of. Projects with Muppet Cast connections has needed work for some time (per talk page) and something I'd like to do for at least two or three shows/movies is collages, like you've done on other pages. For example, for Kojak, I already have screengrabs on Sesame Street Cast in Other Roles for Gordon and Uncle Wally. And then we have Telly Savalas himself. So I took a screenshot of Telly from the Kojak titles, I'd like to have it next to the El Sleezo tough (may need to get a better pic first, but Muppet Movie is on NetFlix instant now, so that's easy) and then the Sesame folks below. (Caption: "When he wasn't undercover at the El Sleezo, Kojak was hanging out with Gordon and Uncle Wally; *possibly* toss in the Mad Painter but he's less vital).
I'm also wanting to do one for Trading Places, with Leonard Winesop on top and then the pics for Richard Hunt (I think I'll need to replace that one first) and Frank Oz (it also has the dad from Aliens in the Family, Susan's father, and Big Bird's camp counselor, but that would be too crowded and less interesting at that point). Basically, show images of at least two Muppeteers or Sesame people in the same project, and then one of the stars or in this case, director. That pretties up the page and makes more sense from our point then either just random shots of the guest celebs or whoever from those shows, or their Muppet appearances. (Might be able to do it in one or two other cases as well, but the best examples, like The Cosby Show and Law & Order, with half a dozen or more key overlaps of *our* people, have their own pages). I can do rough tries through Microsoft paint (like on Dwight D. Eisenhower or Benson) but when it involves more than two images and both next to and below, it's too tricky for me. You're the master at that. I don't know whether you have time with all the Sesamstrasse stuff (I started a Robert Missler page finally, and also will play catch up on some of the older dub folks; it tickles me that Alice Franz was indeed Ma Bear, since some years back on the German synchron forums, I posted a list of either known or hypothesized voices and wondered if it could be her, based on comparisons with Marjory, her basic sound, and known Storeck association, but not really sure).
Anyway, lots of blather from me. I may try a rough Kojak draft anyway, but if you can improve it later, it would help (I don't know if it would be better, if you can help, to upload Kojak Telly solo or with TMM Telly on the right, already combined). Spenser for Hire has a ton of connections (including Fran Brill) but I need to find the episodes first since it's not in ready circulation.
Sorry you caught me in the middle of a busy period, but I see that you started to illustrate quite nicely. Maybe when I have a lot more time on my hands again, until then I think you did quite well and should just try to keep on truckin' with the collages! Those pages ARE in need of pretty pictures!
Yeah, Missler really needed a page of his own, instead of merely being listed on Int'l Grover; thanks! And Alice Franz for Ma Bear... I knew that I would eventually make the connection, but it surprises me as to how long it actually took me to figure it out. Cool that you had made the connection long before!
I find Missler's dubbing career interesting (I think I need to expand a tad there), and the fact that he's recently done a lot of Hitler voice-overs for that one series... but I especially like that he's now puppeteering *and* voicing Grover, at least on occasion, sort of a reverse of the more common trajectory. Keep us posted on the Blumenfabrik and suchlike by the way (I wish I could have seen the anniversary special in total). And suddenly I'm reminded of Liselotte Pulver again (I'd love to see more of her episodes mostly because I'm a fan of the Billy Wilder comedy One, Two, Three, which also featured Peter Capell; I loved getting him on here too, since I knew him from his New York radio work on sci-fi shows, and then Willy Wonka, and *then* found he dubbed German Pops and other stuff).
They usually get rid of each episode two weeks after it airs, but the anniversary episode is still available right here! (BTW, the characters weren't originally singing "Happy Birthday" to the show; the producers just ended up liking it so much, they decided to include it in the episode. This was shot on April 27th, and the song was a request to surprise somebody who happens to have a birthday on that very day!) *whistles inconspicuously*
I loved One, Two, Three. As for old clips featuring Pulver, did you watch the new anniversary documentary? You can even spot yours truly playing Bert and (stealing) Grover a couple of times in the beginning and towards the end of the 45-minute documentary right here. I highly recommend you giving it a try, even if whatever English can be heard (Joan Ganz Cooney, Melvin Ming, Rollie Krewson interviews), is overdubbed most of the time. :)
Huzzah! I hope it stays up at least through tomorrow or Sunday (I have plans to see friends in an abbreviated Midsummer Nights' Dream version as a concert for a local children's festival, complete with symphony backing of Mendelsohn). I love documentary stuff, and if I need to, I may pester you or someone for an eventual translation of select sentences.
Also, it's nice to see Sherlock Hemlock peeking at me from the logo again, a reminder of St. Patrick's Day and spring renewal!
I think the springtime logos are my favorites! Though I should really get around to create one for each of the two missing seasons. :)
Yeah, pester away! But I think that most of the stuff will be quite self-explanatory. If I'm not around, try Quinn or Isha on the ToughPigs board; they know German. And maybe they'd be interested as well!
If you're interested, children's network KIKA will air Sesamstrasse's first TV movie, a cute environmental crime story, this coming Thursday and Friday. I expect the two-parter to live-stream here, and subsequently be available here for exactly twelve weeks from now.
