Just heared Vila Sesamo stoped. They send Garibaldo back to Sesame Street Workshop. The last episode was shot last friday. But they will revive with a new version called Sesame. The pink monster muppet, abby, cookie, grover and elmo will be the only muppets.
How should we insert the change? As a complete new version?
Oh, that's interesting. When are they planning to start the new version?
Right now, it could be either part of the Vila Sesamo page or a new page, depending on how much information you have. If the new show is really different, then it should have its own page. We're currently using "Sesame" as a redirect to the Sesame Street article, which I think is the right thing to do. But we could call the new article Sesame (Brazil)...
I don't know much, but it seems like Sesame Workshop is consolidating their Latin American properties under one umbrella title - "Sesamo." The Plaza Sesamo social media accounts (Facebook, Instagram, YouTube) have already changed their names to "Sesamo."
I wasn't sure who to report this to, but there's been an issue with the Search function (even before thew new one): nothing turns up when I try to search for "I'm" or "I'll" or "I'd," basically anything where the apostrophe immediately follows the first letter.
can i add the history of the whitman also on that catagory.. they started as whitman in 1916 but in 1981 mattel bought them over. Also the other names like golden where used to make a difference in puzzles is what i learned. I think the line had a different name for diffwerent kind of puzzles. Whitman was specialized in paperboard puzzleds and cards and merched into western publishing (books only at that time)
The Western/Whitman/Golden thing is confusing, but this is what I understand: Western was founded in 1910, and it purchased a company called Hamming-Whitman in 1916. Western operated Whitman as a subsidiary company.
Western didn't actually publish much under the name "Western Publishing" -- they used imprints, subsidiaries and partnerships for most of their products. Little Golden Books like Ernie's Work of Art were published by "Golden Press", and Western's comics were published as "Dell Comics".
Western/Whitman was sold to Mattel in 1979, but only for four years -- Mattel sold it as an independent company in 1983. At that point, a lot of products that were being sold as Whitman were continued as Golden Books/Golden Press. So Grover's Own Alphabet was published as Whitman in 1979, and reprinted as a Little Golden Book in 1982. The magic slates and the puzzles were also continued as Golden, and then as Merrigold Press, and then Golden again.
So -- totally confusing. I should update that Western Publishing page some more.
Nitpick: Western partnered with Dell Comics for nearly twenty five years, but they were separate (it was Dell Publishing's comics arm, and under the agreement Dell exclusively handled the properties licensed by Western). *Then* Western launched their own Gold Key label, and later reprinted comics from that and the Dell era as Whitman Comics. And so the maze continues to confuse.
