Are we treating the novel as canon, if there are things that didn't get into the movie? I'm also hearing that some things in the book are different from the movie. Thoughts? -- Ken (talk) 07:51, November 25, 2011 (UTC)

Yes, indeed, from what I have read from it, (and now that I've seen the film) there are some differences. But I really don't think it matters. After all, the Muppets from Space: The Junior Novelization has dialogue and scenes that didn't make it into the finished film.--Gonzofan 07:55, November 25, 2011 (UTC)
So have the picture storybooks and comic adaptations (the storybook of Muppets Take Manhattan has Statler and Waldorf heckling Kermit to get his memory back). So no, we don't count any of them as canon. But it's fine to include an "According to the novelization" or "In the junior novel version" note on any info gleaned from it. We just need to specify. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 17:23, November 25, 2011 (UTC)
Given the often conflicting nature of things within the Muppets' universe, there isn't a real hard canon. Usually we just qualify where a fact cames from (episode, film, book, interview, comic, etc.) and let the reader decide how it all fits together and what counts. -- Brad D.

Okay. I just wondered how we were going to handle things like Tex Richman's page, because he gives them the theater back in the movie, but not in the book. -- Ken (talk) 05:54, November 26, 2011 (UTC)
