"Sign Man"

Do any of the Sesame animation experts (Guillermo, Andrew, etc) know anything about who created these shorts? The animator might give a clue as to how this article may best be named. It was started by a user whose only contribution so far has been this page. —Scott (talk) 19:39, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

I have no clue, though possibly the CTW archives might have something (they have sections with storyboards and stuff for the animated segments; I don't think Danny really delved into those, but if all goes well, I'm hoping to take a trip to Maryland myself after graduation). Frankly, I wouldn't have created the article myself. It's not even like Typewriter Guy, where we know the name is made up but it's circulated heavily in fan websites and such. I think I'd be in favor of moving this to something like "Sign Cartoons" or something, where it's clearer we're just using the best label we can come up with and not an official title. We're never going to find a source to cite for "Sign Man" because there is none. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 19:48, 17 April 2007 (UTC)
Sign Cartoons, categorized in Sketches rather than Characters sounds good to me. —Scott (talk) 19:52, 17 April 2007 (UTC)
Two of these cartoons were included in Old School: Volume 2, and the chapter stops use the word "sounds" at the end of them ("Burp Sounds", "Taxi Sounds"). This might be helpful, though still a bit hard to tell what they really are called. --Minor muppetz 17:58, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
And on a similar note, a few of these can be viewed on the Web Video Player, and the titles given for all of the ones I've found there end with the word "sounds". --Minor muppetz 05:50, 27 December 2007 (UTC)
I just found that the Web Video Player refers to one as "Hand Sign", instead of "Hand Sounds". --Minor muppetz 21:55, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
