Hey, I've been experimenting with the new character template that you set up, only applying it to a few pages so far. With the new debut field, I'm wondering how we should classify the debuts of characters who've appeared in prototype form like Grover and Cookie Monster. For those two, should we measure their debuts from their first Sesame Street appearances (both would be 1969, even if they weren't fully-realized characters then) or should we count their earlier appearances as well?
Yeah, I guess for the sake of simplicity, we can keep it as 1970 when Grover got his name (and his blue fur). I'm kind of delving into the histories of the characters as we go along with this; partly because I want to ensure that we have everything right, but also because I like Muppet history ;P
I wanted to send you a quick note and make sure you saw that need to update to the newer Facebook plugin, used on your main page and other spots. I'm reaching out specifically because we noted Muppet Wiki as a great example of social media use on the help page. I know your posts are always a highlight of my own Facebook feed ;)
This guy says it was season 15 (you have to click the link for the pop-up which has the caption). But yeah, the math is off. Season 15 finished airing in May 1984, so they wouldn't be holding a wrap party 7 months later.
I'll revert and delete; the one we had is better quality anyway. Thanks for catching it.
Hey Scott! We wanted to run something by you, as part of our effort to connect fans with the Muppets franchise, we are working with sponsors and partners to place certain content on communities.
This content could be, for example, trailers, DVDs or behind-the-scenes videos for the tv show/movies and would live in a prominent place on all of the pages of your community. The placement is temporary (~2-4 weeks) and is only done with admin consent.
Here's an example of one that is up and running now, look for the quiz unit.
This is a great way to get content that is relevant and interesting to existing Muppets fans as well as drive new fans to your Wikia community! What do you guys think about something like this being featured on this Wikia?
Hey there! Thanks for letting us know and we will happily respect that.
I found another example if you were curious. You'l notice that both this example and the one for the Borderlands Wiki have totally relevant content to the communties and the sponsor of the "sold unit" isn't even evident.
Anwyay, have a wonderful week and let me know if you have any questions.
Hi, Garrett. As noted in my edit summary, I deleted the page in accordance with the notice that appears highlighted in a big, blue box at the top of every talk page. Talk pages are no longer used on this wiki. They exist as part of the wiki's history, but new discussions have a home on the forum now (linked at the top of every page on the wiki in the navigation menu). Thanks!
Apologies, I should have remembered that you'd get an email notification. Just after I posted, I realized that YICBAF = Yes, I Can Be a Friend. At first I thought it might have been some video database from which we could farm screenshots, but alas, twas not to be.
Hey! I was just looking at the Kirk Thatcher Cameos page and I saw a photo with Kirk labeled as "The New Muppets Show Pitch Reel" from the planned The Muppets Present in 2001. In my interview with Kirk two weeks ago, I asked him a little bit about the show and why it never took off, and in discussion about it, he said they had never pitched the show to any networks. Where exactly does this pitch reel come from?
I wonder if The Muppets Presents and the series announced in 2002 are the same. I first saw The Muppets Presents title listed in a print ad about upcoming Muppet stuff in 2001 (and I think that's the only mention I've seen of it, though it was announced in 2000 that EM.TV planned on a new Muppet show), and in Spring 2002, it was announced that a new Muppet show would air on Fox that year (but of course it didn't). So it would have had to have been pitched, or else Fox pitched it to Henson.
Also regarding whether The Muppets Present and the proposed Fox series are the same, the pilot script was found online last year, and it didn't refer to The Muppets Present as the title (the title in the script was "Untitled New Muppet Project"). I haven't seen that pitch reel, I wonder if it's referred to as The Muppets Present there.
