  • Heya! I'm not sure if you've heard of Portable Infoboxes before, but I wanted to let you know I've been working on converting Muppet Wiki's infoboxes to this markup. The tl;dr is that it's more future proof than current infoboxes, and better on non-desktop skins, namely the mobile skin. You can read more here and here if you're curious or not sure about the idea. Basically I'll be able to convert all of your infoboxes to the new markup, which won't affect the pages or the content on the infoboxes, but will affect the code.

    I've made a PI version of the Song infobox here - any thoughts on this? I can make any tweaks as needed, but if it's all cool with you and the rest of the community here, I'll be able to convert all the rest of your infoboxes - as far as I can tell, they all roughly follow this same style as Song anyway, so it should be easy enough to do. And if you have any questions or need help with anything else, I'll be free to help you out. Thanks!

  • You may or may not remember this- but where did you find the 45rpm for Tick Tock Sick and its picture?

      Loading editor
    • I'm sorry - I really don't remember for sure at this point. But probably 90% of the 45rpm images I found were on ebay, so that is most likely where it showed up.

  • Hi, I don't know if you could help me... I'm in search of a "Billy Bug" toy from 1999 Elmo on Grouchland. My close friend has a brother with autism, and he talks about it and searches the Internet for it every day. Their family has been searching around a year for the toy, and have no idea where else they could look. I found this page and figured I'd ask the experts :) Is there anywhere/anyway you know of that we could find one? Thank you.

    • Hello. Did you mean this bug toy?. I almost certainly found the image for it on ebay, which means that it was for sale at that time. Unfortunately there don't seem to be any listed on ebay at the moment. But a quick google search for "Tyco talking bug grouchland" pulls up a number of ebay auctions that have ended, as well as one offered on a site with which I'm not familiar. In any case, my best suggestion is to keep a watch on ebay or any similar auction site until another one turns up.

      I'm sorry I don't have any better suggestions for you!

  • Why was I failed.

  • I was recently watching the Plaza Sesamo series and noticed that there wasn't any mention about their version aside from "there being a spanish dubbed version of the letter song series", addionally; the letters are different: such as those below that I've known of:

    Letter B - "Baile" (Ballet?)

    Letter D - "Dedo" (Finger)

    Letter E - "Elefante" (Elephant) (YouTube)

    Letter G - "Gato" (Cat)

    Letter I - "Isla" (Island) (YouTube)

    Letter J - "Jirafa" (Giraffe)

    Letter L - "Libro" (Book) (YouTube) 

    Letter M - "Mono" (Monkey) 

    Letter N - "Niranja" (Orange)

    Letter Ñ - "Ñame" (Yam) 

    Letter O - "Oruga" (Worm/Caterpillar) (YouTube)

    Letter P - "Pelota" (Ball)

    Letter S - "Sol" (Sun)

    Letter Z - "Zapato" (Shoe)

    Also, can a page for the letter song series in spanish be made or atleast incorporated into the Letter Song series if its alright? thanks.

    • Oh cool! Of course they would make them different words :)

      I think it would be reasonable to create a page for the spanish versions, under a spanish title, and then go ahead and add it to the Plaza Sesamo song and sketches categories.

      You can link the page to the English one and link the English one back to it.

    • After making the original post, several more were shown on UniMAS.

      Letter A - Avion (Airplane)

      Letter C - Camella (Camel)

      Letter F - Fraise (Strawberry)

      Letter H - Huevo (Egg)

      Letter K - Koala (Koala)

      Letter R - Reina (Queen)

      and Letter V - Vaca (Cow?)

      While those were shown on TV, Plaza Sesamo's YT Channel never seemed to upload the rest of their Spanish Letter Series, as the ones on youtube are easy to simply take a snapshot of.

    • Hello again. I was going to suggest you just add those, but it looks like you never created a page for the Spanish version? I think that would probably work best, but if not then you can just add a section for "Spanish-language variants" onto the existing English page and add the Plaza Sesamo categories at the bottom. It's ok to add ones you know without a screenshot.

      And yes, vaca = cow.

  • Hiya! I just wanted to ask how do you add stuff to the right hand side column of a page like you added the Facebook widget? Is there a javascript you could edit to do this? :)

  • Rats!  Logging in wiped out the message I wrote!

    Last year I think we were in contact over the matter of the Encyclopedia Fragglia that I had made into a single .pdf document.  Later, I seem to recall that I sent you a story I had written about Fraggle Rock.  Your reply seemed positive.  Of course, I'm not positive you are the administrator in question.  

    My plans included writer further stories, but it has taken me almost a year to write the next.  Assuming you are the right person, the one I had been in touch with a year ago, I'd like to offer you a chance to read the new Fraggle Rock story.

    • Hi Taral. Yes, that was me, and I did enjoy the story last year. I'd love to read the new one! Assuming you don't intend to upload it anywhere, probably the easiest way to get another to me is to write through Special:Contact and just flag my name (Wendy or Merrystar) in the message.

      Happy Holidays!

  • Hi! I've been inactive for a while, due to computer problems, a really hot summer and fall, and not being able to think of anything to add. But I've been checking in lately, thanks to the new Muppet TV show, the wiki's birthday coming up, and other things (like a record of the Andrea Bocelli Christmas album!). So I just wanted to say thanks for all of the record pictures that you've added.

    I also wanted to mention that the picture of Lots of Stuff and Clink Clank doesn't go with the 45 that you put it on top of (CT 255501). The Ernie & Bert from Sesame Street set has all of the same songs as the Havin' Fun Carry About, but it came in a bag with a handle, with a picture on a piece of paper that serves as the set's album cover, and all of the singles inside just have white sleeves. I didn't erase it or move it, because I was wondering if it was better than the picture on CC 76048. Which one do you feel is better? Let me know, and I'll fix both places. Thanks!

    • Hey Ken! Good to hear from you. I'm sorry you've had computer problems! I am not here nearly as often as I'd like but every now and then I get a chance to play a bit. And usually the first thing I do is try to find the "True Blue Miracle" single. I keep hoping it will show up one of these days!

      I'm sorry I mixed up 255501 and 75048. I get confused when I edit that table. I think the old image, while smaller, is actually higher quality. The new one is a bit out of focuse. We don't really have anywhere that we use a larger size anyhow, do we?

    • No, that would be where it goes. Those 45's with the CT numbers will have the label pictures, but the album picture will go on the page for 45 sets, like the Carry Abouts. I'm hoping we'll find the 1st edition covers of those, with the Columbia logos. The funny thing is that you can find the Columbia 45's from SS1, and The Muppet Alphabet Album, all over eBay, but you see more of the CRA versions of the same covers for Havin' Fun. I'm thinking those didn't last as long on Columbia, because they were made 3 years later, so more of the CRA versions were made.

      I've almost given up on True Blue Miracle and the Disco Frog 45. Since they were among the last 2 made, I'm wondering if they changed their minds and cancelled them, even though they were listed on the backs of the LP's all the way to 1983. Even then, they might have just forgotten to take them off. But then again, I've learned to never say never!
