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)
I sort of agree. After all, the Sesame Street Songs category has songs listed that were from Sesame Street-related productions, including Sesame Street albums, but not actually on the show itself. --Minor muppetz 20:46, 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)
