Sesamstrasse?

Are the last 6 sketches ("Pretending," "Funny Things," "Helmets," "Exercise," "Feelings," and "Pigeon Watching") from Sesamstrasse or do they have English dialogue? ---- Jesse (talk) 04:43, March 21, 2010 (UTC)

They came from a dub of Play With Me Sesame from 2008. The segments look like they're done by the American performers. The Sesamstrasse sketches are shot on location and these are sets. - Oscarfan 21:54, March 22, 2010 (UTC)

Division IDs

Is there any reason why certain sketches have division IDs (I know what they are for, so no one gets confused on what I'm trying to say):
|- <div id="???????" />
while others don't? Thought I'd ask here because this is the first time I've noticed this. ---- Jesse (talk) 02:48, November 18, 2009 (UTC)

Usually it's because people create tags as they need them to link to other pages, but for whatever reason they don't go through and create one for every single entry. I'm usually into the records when I'm on here, so I always go through and make sure the record pages do have them, because I know I'll need them later. I guess if you don't see a divide tag, feel free to add one, since all the sketches will eventually link to other pages! -- Ken (talk) 02:55, November 18, 2009 (UTC)
They're created as we need to link to them, basically. I would recommend asking someone for help if you want to add one, as the code is very specific. We can't use spaces, special characters or uppercase letters for example, and a few other minor tricks. —Scott (talk) 06:11, November 18, 2009 (UTC)
Okay, thanks! I was just wondering so I could link to the Old King Cole page. ---- Jesse (talk) 22:06, November 18, 2009 (UTC)

fishing

Eb-fishingnote
Ernie and Bert are fishing on a boat. Ernie keeps catching fish while Bert doesn't. Ernie keeps trying to let Bert catch some fish with no luck. This was one of Steve Whitmire's first performances as Ernie.

Is this the same as what Tony described on Danny's talk page as such:

Ernie keeps catching fish, and Bert doesn't, so Ernie tries moving to a different place on the boat, then not using bait, then just quitting. When Bert finally catches something, it is only a note that reads: "What happened to your friend?"

They sound really similar, but I seem to recall yet another fishing sketch that didn't end with the note. —Scott (talk) 22:28, 2 May 2007 (UTC)

I believe those are the same skit (I think I was the one who wrote the description here, and didn't mention how it ends). There was another fishing skit, from the 1980s, where Ernie caught fish by yelling "Here fishy, fishy, fishy!" I think that one is included in one of the Ernie and Bert sketch guides, but in that one he was performed by Jim Henson, not Steve Whitmire. --Minor muppetz 23:12, 2 May 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, the "here fishy" is probably the more famous one. But I thought there was a third. I'll have to keep an eye out for it. Thanks for the clarification. —Scott (talk) 23:19, 2 May 2007 (UTC)
