"Muppets" exhibit

Help, We're Stuck!
The issue in question is unresolved. Can you help?

Has anyone ever heard of the Smithsonian's traveling exhibit "Muppets", staged at some point between 1979 and 1998? [1] -- Zanimum (talk) 19:25, December 30, 2012 (UTC)

Plaza Sesamo usage

PSKermitTransition

In 2006, whenever a Kermit sketch was shown, this transition was used. It features an odd image of Kermit, which I think is the puppet held in the Smithsonian. Would anyone agree? - Oscarfan 21:03, March 11, 2010 (UTC)

I agree. --Rankin (talk) 21:13, March 11, 2010 (UTC)

Kermit puppet

Say, I have a question. Is one of those Kermit puppets displayed really from 1969? -- User:63.22.228.227 11 February 2007

Oh, good question. From what I know, the Kermit they have is a Muppet Show-era puppet. Maybe 1979 instead of '69. Is there a source for that? -- Danny (talk) 14:07, 11 February 2007 (UTC)
Oops, sorry -- I was looking at the wrong part of the article; I thought that was referring to the Smithsonian's main collection. The 1969 Kermit is in the new exhibit. -- Danny (talk) 14:10, 11 February 2007 (UTC)

Smithsonian

I just realized we have this and also a Smithsonian Museum page. Is there some distinction, or should we combine the two? Andrew Leal (talk)

Good question, I didn't realize that. Erik used to (or does) live in DC, I'll bet he'd know if they're the same or not. -- Scott (talk) 00:32, 25 May 2006 (UTC)
It also makes a difference in terms of accuracy. If the Museum is related but distinct, then the current text is inaccurate. Actually, I'm a little unsure of whether the "Muppets and Mechanisms" artifacts will reflect long term holdings or have just been loaned out. Andrew Leal (talk) 00:37, 25 May 2006 (UTC)
No, they're just on loan for the exhibit. -- Scott (talk) 00:51, 25 May 2006 (UTC)
Then I'll go ahead and reword later on. Currently, the phrasing suggests that they're permanent and kept along with the Sesame Street sets and so on. Andrew Leal (talk) 00:57, 25 May 2006 (UTC)
There is no such thing as the Smithsonian Museum. The Muppet exhibit is at the National Museum of American History, which is part of the Smithsonian Institution (which includes a number of museums, galleries, and the National Zoo). So the information on Smithsonian Museum should be added to this page. In fact, I'll go do that now. -- Erik (talk) 19:46, 25 May 2006 (UTC)
