Hey Scott, yeah thats a good question. To be honest I don't really know what the source for that change was. I've been looking through my various files and have not been able to figure out why I made that change.
NRK recently uploaded 4 episodes to their website, and in the progress removed a few episodes they uploaded earlier this year. You would need a Norwegian IP to watch them.
That's the format that they play in, I've just not cut out the black areas before I uploaded the images.
I am trying to find two certain episodes of the Muppet Babies that feature trains in them. I watched "The Great Cookie Robbery" and "The Transcontinental Choo-Choo" but those were not the episodes I was looking for. And I know there's Dental Hyjinks, that episode briefly features a train that's pulling Fozzy's loose tooth, with no success.
One episode I'm looking for is also about trains, and I think in the middle of the episode, Nanny was reading to the Muppet Babies. At the end of the episode, the Muppets get ready to play with a train, but Animal eats one of the train cars. There's also a black and yellow crossing gate.
In another episode, Miss Piggy and I think one other character are in a car stopped on a railroad track and there's a railroad crossing signal, not with flashing lights and there's no gate, but a swinging banner (called "Wigwag signals" for those who don't know) I forget what happens after that but I do believe they get off the tracks before the train comes.
What are the titles of those two episodes?
And while you're at it, are there any other MB episodes with trains in them?
I know this isn't important but help would be appreciated.
Thanks in Advance (If I find them, never mind)
P.S., I am watching the Muppet Babies and other cartoons on this website: http://kisscartoon.me/Cartoon/Muppet-Babies Note, not all cartoons are included and not every episode of the included cartoons are available, bit of an inconvenience.
The outro did change a few times. At first they had a crawler text with some of the characters moving just above the credits. This continued after they changed the intro, but the characters was moved so they would appear as spacers in the text crawl. Then at one point they removed the crawling text and replaced it with boxes on the screen. So the one you have in your video on you tube are from the last version of the outro.
I'm amused that they switched Pepe to Kowalski but left Moni and Feli intact despite all three of them appearing in repeats, pretty much. It also makes me suspicious that Tiffy wasn't repeated after her removal but Moni, Feli, and Pepe were. Hmm...
I just noticed that the first video's outro is shorter than the one you uploaded in 2009, so I take it that they shortened the intro when Kermit the Frog text wasn't displayed. Now I'm curious: what did it look like when that text wasn't involved? Sorry if that makes you do more work :-(
Hello, H yrtter. I found an unidentified Norwegian intro. I don't recognize seeing this intro before. I got access to the video, and also got my friend from Norway to view this, but the video was left blank. You're from the Scandinavian region, so can you confirm the video is possibly a newer intro? http://www.nrk.no/video/PS*71476
Why did you revert my edit on the Sesam page? What I put was true. Elmo did appear in the Swedish dub, "Sesam", in the 1996 version. Watch this video... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zg64Cxv1Nrw , as it shows Elmo in Swedish. I undid your revision back to mine.
The reason is because there was no name change and the voice is unknown. That chart is only for identified actors or name changes for translation, or both (when there's neither, we leave it out). Many characters appeared who aren't in that list because the info isn't known.
The only way it would work is in a brief text list (not part of a voice cast chart) of other characters. If you know enough to make it interesting, feel free. But as is, it doesn't work in the chart. Also, the link you added was non-existent (that is, there's no Sweden section on International Elmo precisely because there was no name change or known voice performer; the list isn't exhaustive, but meant to track instances where we have specific info, beyond the character appearance).
I went ahead and added a brief note to the top of the page that the 1990s series included newer characters such as Elmo, so for now, without a voice actor identification, that's the best way to handle it. I hope that explains the change (sometimes administrators get into the habit of reverting, when we often have to deal with vandals and such, and forget to explain why when the reason isn't obvious to someone not familiar with our structure or formats, sorry!)
