Table of Contents --- Yes/No?

I attended a library booksale this weekend and I managed to snag this book along with a couple of other cool Muppet items --- Muppets from Space: The Making of Muppet Movie Magic and the Love record. Anyway, I was wondering if it's okay to add the table-of-contents of the book, or if that's out-of-bounds? George B. (talk) 01:47, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

I guess the question is, what would be the benefit of including the table of contents? Are the chapter headings humorous or amusing of themselves, or indicate a specific theme? And how would the table of contents help someone wanting to do character research from the book, and so on? That's the main reason we don't include table of contents for books here, as a general rule (though I've sometimes thought that indexes, for books without them, might prove useful, but I always find other and more directly enjoyable Wiki projects to work on instead). -- Andrew Leal (talk) 01:58, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
Well, I just thought that the table of contents might help people to get a better overview of exactly the sort of things that are in the book, for example, "Ernie Takes a Bath," "Bert Goes to the Doctor," "Farmer Grover's Farm," "Traffic Jam in the City," etc. George B.

Aha. Are they treated as stand-alone stories or something? If so, I'd say go ahead. I wasn't clear what sort of "table of contents" you were referring to, or how long it was. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 02:07, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
George, did you get the version with Zoe on the cover, or the older version? — Scott (talk) 02:25, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, you might say they're sort of like "stand-alone stories." Each one is like a different scene, with different sets of words related to it. Like "Getting Dressed" has words such as "socks" and "ngiht cap," while "Bert Goes to the Doctor" has parts of the body anad also "tongue depressor" and --- eee --- "hypodermic needle." So go ahead, then? Oh, and yeah, I got the newer one with Zoe. George B. (talk) 03:25, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
