1984

I searched up "NTV Sesame Street" on Google and found this website that had a list of Sesame Street songs, including this one. It says that the song is from 1984, but I would like to ask, is this website a good source at all, or is it just another fan-made website or a site with various incorrect descriptions like Hulu?

Hey, sorry we missed answering this question. It does look like that's a good source. I'm not exactly sure what it is, but it looks like a collection of copyright information. So unless somebody has information that says otherwise, I think the 1984 date looks good. Thanks for telling us where the source came from! -- Danny@Wikia (talk) 06:56, January 9, 2010 (UTC)

New title name

I'm not too sure about the title name. I know that the video posted on SS.org has this for the title name, although the article seems confusing now. It's mainly particularly because of this line. ""NTV" is a Sesame Street song sung by Nick Normal and the Nickmatics.", which would make it seem like the band were singing about an MTV channel, rather than the main song that was shown in the performance, and also, mainly because of this particular line as well. "It was introduced with Nora Nicks, the host of NTV." Should we still just let it be anyway, change it back to the old name, or make supposedly a seperate article, making this current one with the same name, but put in another article called "NTV", where it explains what the channel was about?

This is the name given by SW and ASCAP, so it's the official title. If the text in the article doesn't sound right to you, just fix it. - Oscarfan 17:53, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
I did make a recent edit, I'm just hoping that it won't be considered fake info, and would be reverted for doing so. Wattamack4 18:00, 29 July 2009 (UTC)Alex
Also, out of curiosity, what is "ASCAP"? Wattamack4 18:02, 29 July 2009 (UTC)Alex
The American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers. They're the equivalent of, say, the Screen Actor's Guild for composers and songwriters and so on. Their online database includes the legally registered titles for songs, thus proving that "NTV" was indeed the intended title of the song, and they're also often our source for the songwriter info. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 19:08, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
