  • Hi, I have just started trying to lift a wiki for Jim Henson's Labyrinth off the ground, and I was really inspired by the Muppet wiki thorough articles and lively community. The labyrinth wiki was founded in 2010 but quickly abandoned. I'm currently trying to bring it to life and am working hard to make it as good as I can get it (and to publicize it!) but I'm finding it quite difficult right now as I'm new to wikia and don't know where to start really when it comes to attracting contributors!

    I really love Muppet wiki, so would gladly appreciate any help/advice you can offer. Before I forget, here's a link to the wiki-

    • Thanks Danny, I glad you like the site so far! The main area I need help developing is the section on the crew. I feel very confident writing about the film, the associated tie-in material and the characters, but have shamefully limited knowledge of Jim and the team who worked on Labyrinth behind the scenes. Of course, the biographies aren't going to need to be particularly extensive but I'd like each of the prominent puppeteers to have a page of reasonable quality. Of course, Muppet Wiki has excellent sections on the individuals associated with Jim and the creature shop, it's just that I always prefer the site to feature specially written material rather than info that's been copied and pasted elsewhere (whenever practical, of course!)

      I have already posted a message on Muppet Central, and will head over to Tough Pigs soon to put a message on there to see if anyone is interested in helping out.

  • Whee! I had to come by and check out your nifty new wall. It's a thing of beauty.

    BTW, when I click on the "profile" tab, the one next to it still says "talk page" and takes me to the old page if I click it. But when I click "Contributions" the "Message Wall" tab does show up and sends me here.

  • so... I hadn't seen Muppet*Vision_3D since i was, like, six (is that even possible?) and all I remembered about it was "woah! 3d! omg! stuff coming at my face!" and i had TOTALLY forgotten that there were REAL MUPPETS there, so my mind was blown on sunday when i saw them running around and breaking things. I saw muppets. For reals. I win.

  • Why do you have a message wall and not a talk page??

  • Hi Danny. Just wanted to write on your wall. And you do look very nice in that green button up.

  • Hey Danny,

    It looks like you added this image back in 2009 as a Muppet Babies PVC figure figure from Applause, but it looks to me like it is the Under 3 toy for the 1987 Muppet Babies Happy Meal toys. Do you have this figure, or was it an educated guess?

    • I think Mokey is from the 1986 set that isn't based on Schleich.... Although I'm curious. If both the Schleich and Applause sets came out in 1983, how do you know which is based on which?

      I like all the feet though :). I wish sellers would do that more often. Why do we call it "Bully" when the mark is "Bullyland"??

    • Oops, yeah, I meant 1986 on that one. (Went back & fixed it.)

      There are a couple reasons why I think we can say the 1983 Applause set was based on the Schleich set. First, the Schleich set has 13 figures, and only six of those were released by Applause in the US.

      Also, Schleich and Applause styles have different styles. It's a little hard to explain, but the Schleich figures are a little -- scratchier? -- and the Applause figures are more rounded and cartoony. So for both Fraggles and Muppet Babies, the first set has the Schleich style, and the future sets are in the Applause style.

      And.... that's a really good point about Bullyland. I thought that those were interchangeable names for the company, but at the moment, I can't remember why I thought that. Looking it up, it looks like Bullyland is the correct name. Man, it's a good thing this is a wiki. :)
