  • I think we need to rethink that quote saying there's been a Sesame float in each parade. This channel has a number of old Macy's parades and I've skimmed a couple and there's no Sesame float to be seen. For example, I just skimmed the 1992 parade. There's a Big Bird balloon and, unless I missed it, there's no sign of the cast.

    I would suggest we take out that note and only list appearances we can actually confirm.

    • Agreed.

    • Where is this quote even?

    • The parade's official site in 2013, as cited on the bottom of the article: "We can tell you how to get to Sesame Street, just follow the Parade route! Your favorite street's float is here for its 39th consecutive year."

      Though, the parade's site now reads: "In 2016, the Sesame Workshop celebrates its 40th year in the Parade."

    • This could go in the References section as an error.

    • The first one directly states the float has been in each parade, while the second implies their presence, which is much more verifiable.

      I'd say, take it out as a source and repurpose it as a note, saying Macy's erroneously claimed that.

      In other words, what I said. Cool. Sorry if that was ambiguous :-\

    • Yeah, I agree -- take out ref [38], and the entries that are only sourced to that quote. I'm glad you noticed; that Thanksgiving Day Parade article is a difficult beast to tame.
