TALK PAGES ARE NO LONGER USED
To discuss article changes, please use:
Here's an interesting conundrum. As far as I know, "The Noodle Story" was purely an album thing, and never filmed as a Sesame Street sketch. The page is worth keeping, but do we move it into Sesame Street Songs (which, while it has musical backing, is not strictly accurate), or create a Sesame Street Album/Audio Sketch category? Right now, I don't know if we have any other articles of that stripe, but there's certainly plenty of material, especially in the Ernie and Bert albums. Thoughts? -- Andrew Leal (talk) 20:13, 21 September 2006 (UTC)
- It's a sketch for Sesame Street, so I don't think it has to move. — Scott (talk) 20:43, 21 September 2006 (UTC)
- It's misleading, though. It was a sketch for a Sesame Street *album*, not the actual show. If we do decide to just stick both here, there should be a note on the page. Otherwise, if one doesn't read carefully, one might get the impression that this was actually a visual sketch performed with puppets, not just filler on an album. Songs are different, since they can be from anything, albums, specials, commercials, etc.
- Incidentally, Big Bird Sings! identifies this as "The Noodle Song," though the others use Story. If I wanted to create a page for "Big Bird Writes a Poem," from the same album, and it's listed between Beat the Time and Buddy and Jim, wouldn't that create a slightly false impression, at least?

- It's not a song, because there's no singing. When I created this page, I think I actually left it uncategorized initially, because I couldn't figure out where it should go. Are there enough audio-only sketches to justify a new category? If not, I think it's fine where it is. -- Ryan (talk) 23:04, 21 September 2006 (UTC)
- There's plenty more, they just don't have pages yet. I still feel there should be a note, then, noting that the category includes both sketches from the show *and* sketches from albums which were never actually made with puppets. With songs, it's a given that there would be a mix. Here, it's not so obvious, I think. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 01:16, 22 September 2006 (UTC)
