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?
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).
Yep! (He's even more of a stud, but if you do see the movie, it would be a spoiler, I think). I have a Netflix trial, so I'm taking advantage of it. The Apprentice, also known as Fleur Bleue (1971). According to the likely unreliable Wikipedia and IMDb, it's the only Canadian feature (as opposed to short or documentary) shot to date which is structured as bilingual for the whole film, not just one scene or two (Sarandon, Parkes and others only speak English; some of the Quebecoise actors speak both; they swapped one actor between French and English versions, so he's a French priest in one and an Irish priest in English, rather than redubbing).
It's more a curio than anything (shifting between comedy, attempts at social commentary, melodrama, crime, and just plain oddness, with a score that sounds like they stole it from Time Piece and the Raymond Scott-scored Henson films). But definitely not uninteresting and better than many movies I've gone through to spot Muppet-connected people.
It was also pretty short (72 minutes or so), so that helps. I still love how that shot falls somewhere between "Of course I can play Hugh Hefner, Bernie" and "What Sprocky doesn't know won't hurt him."
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.
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?
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
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 ;)
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?
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.
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!
