  • What ho, Julian! I've been doing some German research again myself (learned that much of Die Dinos originally aired as part of Kapt'n Blaubar, with some voice overlaps; i.e. Edith Hancke dubbing the puppet flower for the kapt'm *and* Baby Sinclair).

    Also, I discovered a special I was unaware of had aired early April, Sesamstrasse präsentiert: Der Schatz des Käpt'n Karotte (assuming we're handling it the same as the Blumenfarbrik one). Were you involved in this one?

    Also it seems a recast of Grobi is coming, new Cookie footage, and even reviving Mariechen for forthcoming 2015 segments. So you folks are keeping busy up there!

  • Have you seen these yet? They're interesting reads, especially if you speak German. It really interesting reading Klaus Esch and Marita Stolze's opinions on the updates/retirements of Samson and Tiffy, respectively.

  • On the character Rock's page, in the first paragraph Rock is quoted as saying, "Don't about forget..."

    • Thanks for catching that! Always feel free to correct mistakes like that when you find them, though. This is a wiki after all; edit away!

  • Hey, Julian! I love the Elmo and Abby screenshots you added recently. What is "Hello, Halloween"?

  • Hey, Julian! Do you know anything about Gute-Nacht-Geschichten? The cover art is taken from one of the Jim Henson's Muppet Stories volumes. Could it be a reprint?

    • Hi! I own it, but don't have access right now because I'm traveling. Yeah, I believe it's a reprint of various Jim Henson's Muppet Stories, and even though it's got a good amount of pages, I think it's just a selection of the source material.

    • Thanks, I'll add a note :)

      Safe travels!

  • Julian, last month I found the German version of the Muppet Show theme from Muppets Most Wanted. Do you think you can send me the lyrics for it? Please and thank you! http://muppetshenson.blogspot.com/2014/05/listen-to-two-muppets-most-wanted-bonus.html

    • If you don't wanna put the lyrics here, can you sent them to me in a personal message? Cause I'd like to know the lyrics so I can sing along to it like the rest of the soundtrack.

    • Hi there! I'd be fine with transcribing the lyrics here, if only I could fully understand them. :)

      They're obviously not the original lyrics used for Die Muppet Show, but a few parts are kept intact. I wonder who wrote these lyrics, and if the Muppeteers had a language coach for it. Maybe somebody with connections can find out?

  • What ho!

    I have a fun German discovery to make a page for (Jim Henson, Swedish Chef, *and* Eberhard Storeck all as guests on Na sowas! in 1986) which some friends alerted me to.

    Swedish Chef on Na sowas09:52

    Swedish Chef on Na sowas

    I may need your help on the translation (mainly the Swedish Chef bit, I can sort of pick up some words of the Storeck interview, and Jim's answers are in English if obscured by the voice-over translation), although I can do a rough summary. It was mainly to promote Labyrinth, so there's a clip of that as well! It also means Thomas Gottschalk will get a page.

    I'm also doing some digging on the Most Wanted dub. Although there was a claim that Rowlf was dubbed by Axel Lutter, the synchronkartei site now lists Helmut Krauss, who is in the credits, and it seems plausible based on his past work. Would you be able to check on that? Or it may have to wait until the DVD, but director Axel Malzacher (sic) has a website so one could likely e-mail him to verify.

    More later, including a working list of cameo voices based on matching credits to the usual voice of said actor, though there are a couple of question marks. Someone on the synchron forum claims Luisa Wietzorek dubbed Chloe Grace Moretz (as she did four times before), but her name isn't in your list. Marie Christin Morgenstern, who dubbed her three times, *is*. So unless you made an omission, I think they goofed.

    • What a terrific clip! Thanks for sharing! I don't have a lot of wiki time these days, but I'll add what I can to whatever you're able to write up. Cool that Gottschalk's getting a page.

      I agree, they probably goofed. My list of German credits is complete, as far as voices go (filmed off the movie theater screen); still have to add a few crew names listed, later. You should definitely try to contact Malzacher! :)

  • Hi! Are you going crazy having to wait until May 29? That would be a summer release here! I wish they would release movies around the world on the same day. But I guess they spread them out so the Muppets can fly to all the different countries and do interviews. Anyway, there were some gags that made me think of you, but I'm not sure how they're going to translate. I'll talk to you after you see it. Oh yeah, are they going with the US title in Germany? Some early Spanish commercials were using the US title, but now it looks like they're going to translate it. That might explain why I can't find a Spanish CD, and I'm still hoping they make one. I forgot if you said they were making a German one. Let me know, because I love to keep track of that stuff.

    • Yeah, I forgot about that one! I guess tons of US films have to deal with puns and other things that don't translate. I'll bet the Marx Brothers movies had to make tons of changes!

      Hey, I saw your post that there is a German soundtrack, and a German "story of" CD. Would you mind starting the pages? I would do it, but I don't know anything about them!

    • I would but don't have the time needed these days. The soundtrack basically got the same treatment as before (it is what Die Muppets (soundtrack) is to The Muppets (soundtrack)).

      Amazon.de isn't of much help, unfortunately, because they're only providing samples of the English track on their German listing, but I'm sure other sites have the correct listings available.
