Is this true?
I read somewhere (on Wikipedia, I believe it was) that Frazzle was the only intentionally scary Sesame Street character. Are there any quotes or anything to verify this? I wanted to add it to the article, but I want to make sure it's reliable first.LeftyTheSalesman 15:02, 13 May 2007 (UTC)
- Thanks for asking first. We would definitely need a source for that type of information. Personally, I've never heard that, but someone else might have a better idea if it's true. —Scott (talk) 15:30, 13 May 2007 (UTC)
- I think that most of the first season monsters were meant to be scary, too, but I don't have any quotes to back that up. --Minor muppetz 15:45, 13 May 2007 (UTC)
- It depends on what you mean by "meant to be scary". The producers wouldn't want to frighten small children so much that they stopped watching. They might want to give them a little "scary" thrill once in a while, and then defuse it with humor. One way or another, if we're going to add information about the producers' intentions, then it needs to be backed up with a quote. -- Danny (talk) 15:06, 15 May 2007 (UTC)
- Yeah, if I get the chance I'll try to find a quote or something to back that up, if it's available. The more I think about it, that statement is a little questionable (Limbo could definitely give Frazzle a run for his money in my opinion) but if I find any credible information about it I'll put it up.

Why is Frazzle disambiguated like this - Frazzle (monster) and Frazzle (song)? Frazzle is the monster's name and Frazzle is also the title of the song about him, true. However we don't do this for other similar situations – such as having Convincing John (song) and Convincing John (Fraggle) or 123 Sesame Street (song) and 123 Sesame Street (building); we have Convincing John and 123 Sesame Street for the main item with the inspired by, and same named, song being disambiguated off of it (and sometimes we'll have a separate "whatever (disambiguation)" page to list them (such as Camilla (disambiguation)). So why isn't Frazzle the monster's page, Frazzle (song) for the song and Frazzle (disambiguation) pointing to each? Am I missing something about "Frazzle" and our organizational treatment of such situations? -- Brad D. (talk) 06:29, 21 March 2007 (UTC)
- That happened awhile back, before we were using "Name (disambiguation" pages very much. The move never did make much sense to me, though, since for the most part, more users are apt to remember to use "Frazzle (song)," and if they don't it can be fixed, then will remember to use "Frazzle (monster)." So I'd be in favor of moving this to "Frazzle (disambiguation)" and giving Frazzle his due. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 02:31, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
