  • Hi Scott, 

    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!"? 

    Here is the link to both:

  • He's playing the Genie in the live action version.

    • I left an edit summary explaining that he's a celebrity reference on the wiki. We only include people in Connections if they actually worked with the Muppets.

  • I didn't think my edits were ever going to come through on this file. It seems like it was corrupt and the image wasn't appearing in some places.

    • That's weird. I see that happen maybe once every couple of months.

      It's really annoying that the Wikia software leaves a redirect behind for moved files though :/

  • I found this BDM skit and it wasn't listed on his pag, thought you'd wanna check it out.

    Here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bV1VZFREI1Y

  • Are we now looking for dates with a source? I could've sworn I've seen that photo and it was dated 1967 on there. But all the others are not cited though. That seems a bit unfair.

    • 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.

    • Okay. That's cool!

      As for the citation thing, I will adhere to that a little more. Apologies in advance! I'm an active person in the Wikia community, so I need to remember some wikis have different guidelines.

    • No worries, thanks for asking! With nearly 34,000 articles, it's not always easy to police every claim for a source, but we try to catch them when we can.

      For reference, our guidelines are always accessible both from the Help menu up top and the Get Started button on the right sidebar of every article.

  • 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.

    • Nice. Works for me. Surprised we hadn't included it yet considering how well we've all adhered to it for so long.

  • 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.

  • Should we rename the page for episode 417 of TMS and give it a proper name like "Episode 417: The Stars of Star Wars" or "Episode 417: Mark Hamill" or just keep it as "Episode 417: Star Wars"?

    • I can't find it right now, but when we talked about it on the wiki, the consensus was no.

      Oh. Thanks for the answer.

    • 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.
