Real Name

I saw the episodes this was mentioned in. The inn is always referred to as "The Captain's House". --TenCents 21:52, January 17, 2010 (UTC)

I've been checking the episodes today. In Episode 220: A Cave of One's Own, it's just referred to as "the old captain's house" being remodeled as a bed and breakfast/inn (they refer to it both ways). In episode 222, it's just called "the new bed and breakfast." It's definitely called "The Captain's Inn" by the third known mention (which wasn't on the page at the time) in "The Bells of Fraggle Rock" and again "at the Captain's Inn across the street from me" in Episode 302: Red-Handed and the Invisible Thief. I'm still digging but so far other references within those episodes are just "the inn," plus we know that the Encyclopedia Fragglia internal documents called it "The Captain's Inn." Can you specify which other episodes you saw where it was referred to as "the captain's house," or did you just watch the one? As it stands, it seems pretty clear that the Captain's Inn was the official name (I just got to Episode 305: Blanket of Snow, Blanket of Woe, where Doc is writing ad copy for it). -- Andrew Leal (talk) 23:21, January 17, 2010 (UTC)
I'll have to do some checking, but I remember an Uncle Travelling Matt postcard where Matt is in front of a bus, and there's a sign that says "The Captain's House". The sign is probably meant to tie-in with the episode universe, and it also refers to the building sitting next to the sea shore, where Sprocket and Doc live in. --TenCents 14:59, January 18, 2010 (UTC)
Do double check. Every episode I found refers specifically to The Captain's Inn, including the last season when it's briefly glimpsed, and Doc writes ad copy "For a real ice-breaker, try the Captain's Inn." So there's no doubt whatsoever that "The Captain's Inn" is the intended name. If you can find this postcard you remember, and show that it's not just memory, though, and that it's explicitly referring to the inn, it would be worth noting (but not changing the name). -- Andrew Leal (talk) 22:06, January 21, 2010 (UTC)
Okay, I finally found what you're talking about, in episode 222 (the second episode involving the inn), and it's there. It's interesting but since it's the only one, and the episode itself talks about it as "the new bed and breakfast," it's reasonable to assume this was a working name. It's a fun addition to the article, though. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 22:14, January 21, 2010 (UTC)
