  • Hiya! Something I thought I'd point you to... I found this photo and noted that we don't have it covered on the wiki yet. It looks like it's part of a set if you go through Alamy's similar photos linked below.

  • Hi! When you have time, a fact check. Last month, a user altered International Grover (which needs major table clean-up, image fixing, and updates) to say that Martin Reinl turned Grover on Sesamstrasse to Carsten Haffke (probably true), but that Robert Missler stopped dubbing him in 2017(!) That implies Reinl or someone else did the voice for that year, and that Haffke does voice and puppetry now.

    Since the same user also took Morar out of Carsten Morar-Haffke in text (I just caught and undid it), I'm not sure they're reliable. But you are!

    • Hiya! We're currently doing location shoots for the next Möhre film, so I was able to ask him about this. Carsten is actually fine with it either way; Morar-Haffke is his official name on paper (Morar coming from his wife, which he added to his own in order for the family to share a name). Haffke, the name he was born with, remains his stage name. Yet, since he's mostly (if not always) credited as Morar-Haffke, it's probably best to leave it that way on the wiki!

      As for Robert Missler; he's had life-altering health problems last year and is probably not going to recover to the point that he can continue his Sesame work. Reinl has taken over performing Grover, both in puppetry and voice; the latter starting this year. I have taken over performing Günni, though he'll be dubbed later as I'm not in the same voice range. So, I might literally be pulling the strings, but at least I don't have a potty mouth... ;-D

    • PS: That Moebe user's profile lead me to this right here... it's cool if they want to attempt a German language take on it, but do we want them to use our logo and background images? Aren't there Wikia rules about this kinda thing?

    • Thanks for the background info.

      Usually the other language versions of sites (as with Memory Alpha) are authorized or founded in conjunction. Since this one is someone's personal project that they never reached out to us about (with a different url not just de.muppet.wikia.com), but they actually have their main page index calling itself Muppet Wiki, it's probably the same as when other Muppet/puppet sites tried to take Muppet Wiki logos directly, which was a violation. There's a Spanish version, now up for adoption, but they added an S, Muppets Wiki and have a unique logo. While they don't link back to us, the text positions them as a Spanish counterpart in a way that avoids confusion.

      Wendy would be the best person to speak to as to how to handle it (she's done so for similar issues, usually in those cases disgruntled blocked users).

  • I was wondering about that photo on Wolle's page with him with all the other sheep. Which episode is that from? Would really love to see it. Thanks!

    • Try searching for it on Netflix or Amazon Prime if you've got either of the two. The latter should have it, though I don't know if it varies from country to country.

      I'm in the United States though.... It wouldn't be on there.

  • Hey man, this is just an FYI.

    I came across a couple images (this and this) that weren't generating thumbnails that I tried fixing with a reupload and/or a rename, and nothing worked. I finally Googled it and found w:c:community:Thread:786656 where a Wikia staffer says that images over 3500 pixels won't generate a thumbnail. I'm pretty sure this is nonsense, so I'm gonna try to figure it out.

    Can you make a shortlist of images you've uploaded that are over 3500 pixels either in width or height? Just a sampling to figure out what's going on, don't need a comprehensive list. Preferably some recent ones and some old ones (from before 2014) if you can find them.

    • All appears to be fixed! Surprised at the quick turnaround, to be honest. Might have had something to do with Wookieepedia getting upset.

      Anyway, let me know if you see any existing issues. (Some pages may need a hard refresh to show up.)

  • Hey man, I found another batch of dead videos. The good news though is that I'm getting a better handle on how to manage our videos. Anyway, if you've got these and can replace them, that would be great. Otherwise, I can use the thumbnail in place of the videos and delete the description pages. Hope all is well 😊

  • I don't know why I love those images from Peter Alexander präsentiert Spezialitäten so much, but I do. Maybe because it represents a thing from a much-loved Muppet era that I'll probably never see. Then again, I wonder... does the DVD contain English subtitles by any chance?

    • I've looked on the Amazon.de and I don't think it has any English Language/subtitles on the boxset.

    • Aw, that's a shame.

        Loading editor
    • I do love 'em, too! :)

      Though, I tried to polish each of these; the actual DVD quality is a bit... worse. Unfortunately, I don't think they even have German subtitles, which sucks for the deaf and hard-of-hearing!

  • Hi Julian! I'm trying to figure out some confusing info that we have on The Art of the Muppets (exhibit) and Jim Henson's Muppets Monsters and Magic. The two touring exhibits may have overlapped, and may have gone through several name changes -- it's not clear right now what the difference is between them.

    You contributed a lot on both pages, so I'm hoping you can help me figure this out. A specific piece that I'm not sure about -- according to Karen Falk, the final stop on the "Art of the Muppets" tour was at London's Museum of the Moving Image in late 1988. In 2010, you posted here that "Muppets Monsters & Magic" was at London's MOMI in 1989.

    I don't know if you remember where any of this came from, but: is it possible that the MOMI/1989 date that you had was actually the closing date for Art of the Muppets' last stop, rather than the first (or second) date of Muppets Monsters & Magic?

    The forum thread where I'm working on this is Thread:242440 -- it gets a bit long and complex. :) I'd love any help or thoughts you have. Thanks!

    • Been too long ago that I added to the pages, but know that I wouldn't have added tour names, dates and venues without explicit evidence.

      But it looks like you figured it all out, after all. And how cool that all the confusion came from Jim Henson himself, simply mixing up the exhibitions names. :)
