  • Hey, do you think you can fill in a couple of the gaps on the page? The episode number and Maria's song are all that's missing, but if you wanted to add more images to the first half of the street story, you can.

    Hey man, long time! Being the biggest Muppet fan I know - I was just curious what your thoughts are on the new series. Sounds to me as if it will be nothing like the original show, do you think it will be any good?

    • Hey, how's it going? We're all pretty excited about it. Danny's at the D23 Expo today and we're hoping they announce some new stuff. The buzz is pretty positive and everyone's got a good feeling about the showrunner because it's Bill Prady who started his career with Jim Henson and since went on to create The Big Bang Theory. So, hopeful feelings all around :)

      Nice! I'm definitely going to have to check it out. :)

  • Thanks for the image upgrade on Old-time radio. I'm not sure if there's any Darwin leftovers but under the current viewing options, in different browsers, it looks like the page has room for more images (plus I've been adding to the connections like mad; found a BBC database of Radio Times listings with cast info, and some odds and ends from elsewhere). I'm wanting to add more comparison pics (OTR person at the mic or in character, and then in their Muppet capacity).

    I'm also still astonished that thanks to Numeric Con, the Green Hornet warrants a page.

    • Yes! I thought I got all the Dreamchild upgrades, but I guess I missed some.

      Yeah, after all the anxiety Darwin caused (they really ruined that name), they went ahead and basically changed it back. It's still dynamic, so it's ridiculously different for everyone depending on screen resolution, but it's an improvement in terms of article space.

      Green Hornet, away! (I don't know what his catchphrase was)

    • He didn't really have one, just Flight of the Bumblebee (and a really cool car).

    • I'll just leave my Seth Rogen laugh here, then. With profuse apologies.

    • A friend attended Comic-Con this year, and at a panel on the Shadow, the Shadow was there in the audience, hanging with the Green Hornet. Naturally. (They probably get their hats at the same place.)

  • I noticed something weird at the bottom of Maria as Chaplin skits.

    I checked the history, and it started with [this edit]. The user added quotation marks to terms in the coding, but missed a couple. Apparently current Wiki code is fine with either no quotations around terms like center, or else consistent ones. First time I've seen it, but thought I'd mention it in case we see it again (since there's no obvious logical reason why variants in coding should suddenly produce a "retrieved from oldid" message. (I don't think it counts as a bug so much as just a weird reaction to inconsistency).

  • Hi, Scarecroe ! What happened with the page "Gonzo" ? When I go on it, it's entirely empty, as the text have disappeared. And no erasure is mentionned in the history.

    • A. LOVE that pic of Prady and Chip! Where'd it come from, Twitter? Facebook?
    • B. And I like the refined show template. I'd been meaning to bring that up (I think it'd work very well for The Furchester Hotel episodes). And I was gonna ask if you'd want to do the same thing with the Home video template as well.
    • C. Any particular reason you're using the NYC airdates as the official "first" airings of the MS episodes?

    • Thanks! It's crazy there's stuff we haven't seen before, like that Steve Whitmire cameo.

  • Gerardparkes-apprentice

    How Gerry Parkes looks in an odd 1971 Canadian film where he had a sex scene with Susan Sarandon (and also got to drop an F word). And this was the best facial shot in the movie too. (He gets "And Gerard Parkes" billing, so that's always nice too).

    • Aw, I'll bet Sprocket's just a pup hanging out with Susan Sarandon's cat. I'll stop before this becomes full-on fan fiction.

  • So, Judy looks exactly like the puppet used for Georgie. Where did the Judy image come from?

      Loading editor
    • There's some discussion of it here, which also has a b&w pic labeling the character "Georgina" (which would fit with Georgie). Apparently it was some issue of Sesame Street magazine, but we hadn't pinned down which.

        Loading editor
    • D'oh! Should've looked there to see if this came up before!

        Loading editor
    • I looked at Judy again when I added Georgie recently, and thought about merging. I guess I forgot about it, but I just went ahead and did it now.

  • 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?

      Loading editor
    • I think Grover's debut should be when he was established as Grover and not when the puppet first appeared.

        Loading editor
    • 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

    • Yeah, I like that each time we re-do a template or something, it gets us to re-examine things that have been around the wiki for almost a decade now :)

  • Hello!

    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 ;)
