I'm not sure what to do with Scribd, added today. We cover Amazon, iTunes, Hulu etc. for streaming or download content and for having been referenced or co-producing content. But not a company just for having e-books which are Muppet or Sesame related, any more than we do for brick retailers having them on shelves (maybe it's no different from the video content, but it feels like it to me). I just checked and right now they're the same books available via Amazon and others anyway (a company called Kobo has had them and more since 2014 at least).
The current text (which basically says "They didn't add much but some media sources covered the acquisition") doesn't help. If we're going to track this, would be better off with just a page for e-book retailers, if we even want to go there? (It gets a little too close to just being commercial links).
Hey, Scott. I'm just curious...how the heck were you able to delete 30 images within one minute? Must be a script or something, because I don't think I could manually delete as many as 30 images within a minute myself!
A bit of an odd question that you might be able to help me with...
I've been doing quite a bit of Muppet artwork lately, and I'm fascinated by the various photos and references I've found from the Character Style Guides. They are very helpful, but there's one piece of information I'm hoping you can help me finish.
It concerns the 1979 SS character guide specifically, and I'm compiling a handy color guide for my own reference. I've got a rough printout of it, but I can't quite make out all of the Pantone number references. I've got about half, and I'm hoping if you could help me fill out the rest. The only ones I've come across are: 123 (Orange Gold AMs), 137 (Pumpkin), Warm Red (mouths), 820 (pink AMs), 529 (lavendar AMs), 829 (fat blue AMs), 375 (green AMs), 376? (Oscar), 348 (Count's cape), 159 (Snuffy), and 167 (Oscar's eyebrows).
I've also come acroos an old guide here , but there seem to be some inconsistencies. Anyway, I hope you can help me with my problem and I appreciate any feedback.
Hello. First of all, I've been a lifelong fan of the Muppets ever since I was only about a year old. Anyway, I saw a video clip posted by you on Muppet Wiki from the "Today Show"'s 50th anniversary special in 2002 featuring Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog.I've been looking around for a taped copy of the special in its entirety. Would you happen to have one from which this clip came? -Alex Vaillancourt
Jim Henson's Creature Shop supplied performers and puppets (not fully practical ones necessarily, and the article says sometimes the puppeteer's hands were used) to provide a guide or sight line for the actor playing Mowgli. Close to what happened with Looney Tunes: Back in Action (except those puppets were too big so they ultimately weren't used for even that). There was never any intention for the Creature Shop to supply on-screen characters or effects (or no indication of it anyway).
Worth noting on Kipling but not sure it should be in the Creature Shop filmography, or if we do, we'd need to clarify (i.e. "puppet stand-ins, removed in digital" or something, because otherwise it implies actual characters in the movie). Maybe wait to see if the Creature Shop gets screen credit.
Oh, good! Reverse Google Image Search led to this larger photo, too. Looks like Allan Trautman maybe. I like the eyes in the background. I probably won't be seeing this in theatres, but I'll check out the credits on home video in a couple months.
Hey Scott! Awesome to have those design notes from the Center of Puppetry Arts exhibit! One minor thing, though; This note on the first Pumpkin Anything Muppet, claiming that it was built in 1970, contradicts with the actual first appearance of a Pumpkin AM (which was 1969, in the first episode). Should the text be revised to match what we have?
Thanks, I'm not entirely happy with the photos I took though. I'm still learning how to use the camera, and the glass/lighting combo in that space makes it very difficult to get a shot of anything without glare.
Can you please delete those two pages? A user just created a page and just wrote that it was an episode in both pages without any categories or any information at all about the episode. It is OBVIOUS that it is an episode but can you take a look at those two pages and delete them?
