This is a first draft for a way to talk about how much coverage different productions should get.

Core Muppet productions

Productions Current Categories Questions
Muppet Show, Sesame Street, Fraggle Rock, Muppets Tonight, Jim Henson Hour, Muppet/Sesame movies, International Sesame Everything: Characters, Episodes, Performers, Locations, Songs, Merchandise, Culture, etc.

Secondary Muppet productions, pre-1990

"Muppet" is defined here using the Muppets vs Creatures distinction -- symbolic, puppety characters. Also crossover productions with core Muppet franchises, like Muppet Babies and animated Fraggle Rock.

Productions Current Categories Questions
The Christmas Toy, Emmet Otter, Fraggle Rock animated, Ghost of Faffner Hall, Little Muppet Monsters, Mother Goose Stories, Muppet Babies, Muppet commercials, Sam and Friends, Tale of the Bunny Picnic

Secondary Muppet productions, 1991-2004

Productions Current Categories Questions
Animal Jam, The Animal Show, Bear in the Big Blue House, Breakfast with Bear, Big Bag, CityKids, Construction Site, Dog City, The Hoobs, Mopatop's Shop, Mr. Willowby, Panwapa, Play with Me Sesame, Secret Life of Toys, Tomie DePaola, Wubbulous World Pretty much everything, but avoiding random stubs and consolidating where possible. Mopatop's Shop is an example -- episode pages only for episodes that we have good info on. * For some shows, we have some episode pages with little/no content -- Bear in the Big Blue House, Muppet Babies. Should we follow the Mopatop's Shop model, and just have pages when we have enough info to make a page?

Note: Some of these productions have puppet crossovers with core Muppet properties, some don't. Does that make a difference?

  • Crossovers: The Animal Show, Bear in the Big Blue House, Big Bag, Dog City, Mopatop's Shop, Mr. Willowby, Panwapa, Play with Me Sesame, Secret Life of Toys, Tomie DePaola.
  • No crossovers: Animal Jam, CityKids, Construction Site, The Hoobs, Wubbulous World.

Projects with a mix of Creature Shop/Muppet sensibility.

Productions Current Categories Questions
