  • Hey, I went ahead and took the Kermit duplication on Character recasts out again. If we decide we need it under both Muppet Show and Sesame Street, it would make more sense to adjust the dates to match when Jim Henson and Steve Whitmire played the role on the show (not just their tenure dates period; Whitmire's first Sesame Kermit was later than 1990, Jim Henson wasn't on Sesame in 1955, etc., so it really didn't help much as was).

    • Ah, okay. I was on my phone and only saw the diff from recent pages and reverted thinking Kermit was taken off the page entirely. Thanks for catching that.

  • On a happier note, if you haven't seen this: This Is Your Life (UK). Somewhere in the more random Muppet appearances (except that ITV produced This Is Your Life, The Professionals, and The Muppet Show, so...) I found it thanks to an Avelyman listing.

    Video link for the relevant clip (full episode is on YouTube too, but really, this is all we care about). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hGwUuuoaAqU

  • Hey, can you look at Lindsey Vonn? I see you added a video earlier this month, but all I'm getting is an empty grey box. I'm not sure if Sesame Workshop took it down, it's a template issue, or something from the host formerly known as Wikia.

  • For the Dutch songs -- the few I've looked for were fairly easy to find online, and I speak enough Dutch to translate them. I know I don't have a lot of time for it and I'll never get through all of them anyhow, so while I agree on de-red-linking the one-link songs, could you leave the ones with multiple links? I'd like to create those.

      Loading editor
    • Oh, yeah. Absolutely. I didn't realize any of those had multiple links. If there's easily-obtainable info out there, we should have pages for them.

    • I was surprised also, given the weird titles. And whoever made the album pages obligingly added the writers. I suspect even the seemingly obscure ones were used on the show, although we don't have episode guides. Anyhow, I used the ascap equivalent "buma/stemra" to confirm the writer credits and filled in "'n Kuiken Is Geen Kip" the other day.

    • Yeah, specifically with Ik Vrolijk Mij Op Met een Liedje, which was created by Paul, I'd been thinking he hadn't been on the wiki in a while because I know he had a kid in recent years, but I just looked at his contribs and I guess he's been back.

      I just rolled back my redlink removal edit on that page, but I checked all the songs and the only one that has multiple links going to it is Goudvis. So feel free to do with it as you will.

  • Was wondering your thoughts on updating the page on Statler and Waldorf, seeing as how Steve Whitmire is no longer performing Statler. Not sure if you got the chance to watch the 'We Day' special, in which the Muppets make an appearance, Statler appears alongside Waldorf, and appears to be performed by Peter Linz again. Are we safe to make the assumption that Peter is now the performer for Statler? 

    I would update the page myself, but I wanted to check in with you first in case this is a topic you had already discussed and considered.

    • Hi, I didn't see the WE Day stuff. If someone can confirm it's him, we can add him to the Casting History, but we wouldn't add him to the performer box until he's established himself as the character consistently over a period of time.

    • Great, glad I asked. I have the special recorded on my DVR, when I get the chance, I'll go back to see if he was credited at all.

    Not sure what we'll do with this, but found when looking for something in The Muppet Movie. I'm not sure if this implies Bogen County is in the south (same sequence has several US flags being carried the same way or displayed; given Kermit's implied starting point, it could be, but we have Fozzie's multi-state/province driving to factor in), or what. But it seemed an oddity worth parking.

  • There actually was a source for episode 3170's edit. If you look down further, you will notice Richard said "I got this from one of my parent's home movies." That is a source. You guys just must not have noticed. How can we make sure everyone is aware of this so it doesn't get reverted again?

      Loading editor
    • Are you referring to my conversation with Richard Canipe? We have a standing policy that states contributors are required to show their sources, especially upon first arrival at the wiki. Dodging a direct question in this regard twice is not an indication that a particular contributor is interested in working on a collaborative project with others.

        Loading editor
    • Look at the revision history for 3170. He mentioned his source in his first edit saying that he found it on one of his parents home movies. That's a reliable source. So it wasn't unsourced. You just must have missed it.

  • I would like to confirm you changed an edit I made as well, to Frank Oz's performances as Bert, immediately after I made the edit. Pages on Bert, Frank Oz, and Eric Jacobson have stated Frank oz gave up the character in 1997, and Eric Jacobson took over the same year. Can you please write back so I'll know if I made a mistake, because I was just trying to correct some information, that looked a little off. Thank you.

      Loading editor
    • For one thing, the change altered the year but not the link, which went to the 1998-1999 season. That and the unclear summary just made it look like a mistake.

      As for the date, that actually needs to be looked into further. Frank Oz says 1998. Bert says 1997. Jacobson's page implies 1997 was when they started alternating but that the full takeover came later (which means as far as "return" performances, that would have been 1998). So that section needs further research and specific sourcing in general (checking interviews and so on; right now, the only specific source cited on those pages is on Oz's, from the Unpaved book, which implies 1998 as when he stepped down rather than just reducing his work). Thanks for making us aware of it.

  • Hi there - you just removed my edits and I wanted to get a sense of the rules and maybe figure out what I did wrong.  I made 4 edits and you removed my website that will be selling the art for the cartoon - is that not allowed?  Also you removed my correction to the placement of a reference (which is on the wrong sentence) and my addition of the note of the animator's death and a reference to his obit.  I was moving quickly and didn't note what I did correctly, so perhaps that's why you eliminated the last two?  Or is there a rule against noting deaths?

    • Hi Charles, sorry your addition was removed. Unfortunately, Wikia's WYSIWYG editor doesn't work very well and tends to break pages when it's used to edit from time to time.

      Looking again at your changes, thank you for correcting the director's name and providing a source for the obit. However, as we don't allow commercial links on the wiki, the gallery will have to remain omitted.

      After my post got deleted, I did end up creating a forum thread about that certain topic.
