    • 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?

      • A. Yeah, that's from one of his social media accounts.
      • B. I wanted to get that done as we move through the character template updates so we have a quick reference for character debut dates. And yeah, I think most of our templates need some streamlining.
      • C. Right now the template is showing both UK and US premieres. The UK date is first because it usually came before the US date, but not always.

    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.

    • 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?

    • 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 ;)

  • Hey, could you be super awesome and announce on Facebook that we have all of season 45 guided now? And the total guides is 1,085, which is also cool.

  • So, we already have that cast photo on Sesame Street wrap party, but that page cites it as season 16. What's the source on season 15?

      Loading editor
    • 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?

    • Hi Jamie,

      I don't think we're interested in any extra ad placements right now, but thanks for asking :)

    • 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.

    • I'm sorry, I'm really opposed to pop-up ads and other really intrusive interruptions.

      If it were ABC coming to Wikia asking to place content on Muppet Wiki to advertise the new Muppet series airing this Fall, that might be another thing.

      I understand ads keep the site running, but I feel like we're inundated with them as it is.

      Thanks for reaching out, though.

    • Understood completely. Thanks for letting us know!

  • Do you think you can snag a HQ pic of the Muppets Tonight audience? The Sandra Bullock episode has a clean shot of them.

    • Another screencap request: The version of "The Truth" from Telling the Truth. I'd rather have the Sesame version as the main pic. than the Little Mermaid...thing...

  • Scott, I'd like to inquire why you removed the talk page I created for Leo Birdelli. Aren't we back to doing talk pages, plus I think I brought up a pretty legitimate point on it.

      Loading editor
    • 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!
