If these creatures are credited in the film as "The Chilly Downs," where do the terms "Fireys" and "Fire Gang" come from? I assume it's mentioned in No Strings Attached, but a citation with a page number would help here. —Scott (talk) 16:50, 16 July 2007 (UTC)

I think that Jim Henson referred to them as the Fire Gang in Inside the Labyrinth. --Minor muppetz 16:59, 16 July 2007 (UTC)
They're only listed as "The Chilly Downs" in the credits for fabrication. In the puppetry and voice credits, they're called Fireys, and in the song lyrics, they call themselves "The Fire Gang." Simple as that. No citation issues at all. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 17:03, 16 July 2007 (UTC)
Well, it was an issue for me the way it was written. Thanks for clearing that up, I'll make the fixes. —Scott (talk) 17:05, 16 July 2007 (UTC)

Attributions

Well, we finally have a page for thse guys, using a format not dissimilar to The Frackles. However, while the performer and number attributions come direct from the film's credits, apart from #1 and #5, I'm not entirely sure of the images matching the numbers; I just did the best in order of appearance, but that's assuming the numerical correspondance isn't in fact according to first lines, or something. Behind the scenes Inside the Labyrinth footage mainly just confirms team composition, but since Henson's narration stresses multiple practices just to figure out the movements, I can't be sure that those matched the final roles in the film (the Dave Goelz team seems at one point to be operating the one whose head first gets bounced, but in other footage, seem to match the one currently listed here as #4). I'm not even that big a Labyrinth fan, so I'll leave it as is, but if anyone can be more precise (preferably just swapping images, not numbers and performer stuff), or add text about the individual charactes, even a quote or something (I can't find a whole lot to say about them), others abide our question, thou art free. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 03:33, 13 September 2006 (UTC)
