I was watching an episode of Sesame Street with my niece and I noticed at the 7:40 mark on episode 4063 Big Bird and Elmo go "Here Chicky Chicky Chiky!" I was wondering if that was a reference to Bert and Ernie going fishing when Ernie says "Here Fishy Fishy Fishy!"?
I found a source for the date; a Red Book blog post. We do need to identify sources, whether through edit summaries or on the page itself, although because of how it's currently set up, it may be too clunky to use citations.
Yeah, we're always looking for sources. Often, a source is added in the edit summary which can be found in the article's history. Other times it might be more obvious.
But you bring up a good point, the dates on that article could probably be better cited. I reverted your addition because it came up in Recent Changes and looked like a guess based on the other dates. It looks like Jonathan added it back, citing the official Henson blog.
Given how often we have to correct or remind people, I finally got around to explaining our biographical dates rule on the guidelines. Wording may need some work, but it always helps to just have something to point to.
Hey, just saw something on your to do list re Episode 0036 and Mr. Glopper played by "Buddy." While not confirmable without footage, this is when Buddy and Jim were still regulars. So while it might just be a first name for an outside actor, it's also possible it was just Brandon Maggart (Buddy) playing another role (possibly as Buddy, just like other sketches with street regulars taking on roles). It would also fit with, for example, Episode 0059, which it seems from those documents, has Jim in a solo bit to introduce Kermit.
Best way to prove it would be if it ever becomes viewable, but just something to keep an eye out for.
Yeah, definitively. I thought of that at the time, but to be honest, I can't remember why I found that notable enough to mark on my notes. I think I was just jotting everything down at that point, but I've certainly found bigger questions marks going through these since then.
Hopefully SW starts to embrace their legacy a bit more with the 50th anniversary ramping up and we get to see footage of some of this stuff.
Actually it hasn't really been discussed. Jonathan renamed the page without discussion in 2017 and it was reverted, and way back on the talk page, someone brought it up in 2009.
But that old talk page is the closest anyone came to actually discussing it, and nobody replied. So no one has actually started a forum thread to discuss the article title (if it came from a document sourcing how the episode was listed, that's a pretty good justification, or it may just be an early wiki artifact).
Any page renames not based on typos or "Wait, this is what the actual title card/cover says," especially for a widely linked article, are always undone unless there's been discussion and consensus first.
Just wanna remind you that we decided that the page for Episode 3696/Rerun doesn't need to have categories. https://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:254700 I really don't like the idea of confusing readers who look at the List of Sesame Street page who notice that there's one extra guide that isn't listed on the page.
