What's on your mind?
Just wanted to check what the info is about this song. The page says Laura di Tripani directed it, but apparently the Rock and Roll credits have Jon Stone as the director. Also, is there any info on the tape date and puppeteers?
At least two Sesame Street Muppets have used that name. One is the mother in a home video about new babies; the other is the title character in "The Queen's Questions", a letter-teaching story from Episode 0164. Should we create a disambiguation page?
There was a post on the Tough Pigs Forum about helping with the page for the "Sesame Street Skills for Growing" filmstrips. I'm willing to help there or in some other places (was just looking around and saw the checklist for Muppet Babies, for example), but I don't want to jump incorrectly, so I reach out for where folks might most want help taken.
Do we know if this name was given to the character by the Wiki, or by the Muppets?
Seems like the Sesame song pages for specific characters need some attention. I think its probably time to give Zoe her own song page, Rosita's songs aren't really listed anywhere, neither are most of Abby's. Elmo's needs to be updated, but I wonder if we should change the format since it's different from the others (its just lists, as opposed to a gallery). And besides that, there are most likely songs that are not listed on these articles, so this might all be a hefty, but worthwhile endeavor.
What's going on with episode numbers for Doozers (series)?
Using episode 1 as a reference point (but this applies to at least most of season 1), back in March 2013 it was "Project Radish-A-Pult". When I looked in October 2018, Hulu had changed it to "Big Stars". It's currently back to "Project Radish-a-pult" again, but an edit by Liam this morning (I don't know his source) shows they're all in flux again.
Any idea why Hulu would keep changing them?
I was just looking on YouTube, and I found a clip of the Swedish Chef without a hat. I took a screenshot to make sure it was clear.
Any idea what "A unicorn makes Z words" could be referring to in Episode 0992?
The script has segments called "Z Drawing", "Z Zipper", and "Z Zip" but I don't know what they are. It could also be some other segment that's not described as obviously.
Not sure if anyone here can help me, I have a sealed pack of 12 Muppets Christmas cards and postage paid envelopes released by Australia Post in 2008. Just wanted to know if anyone knows if it is worth anything to sell or where I could find that out? Deciding if I sell them or just use them to send to people for some lockdown cheer.
Thanks in advance 😊
Suggestion for the Muppet Commercials page - Splitting everything up by decade, just like with the Muppets Productions and Muppets Shorts pages. I think it would be bit easier to navigate through, especially since the list just keeps getting longer. Thoughts?
I know he plays a ukulele on the song Elmo's Ducks but the one in that video is a different color
So, I know in the past (presumably when we had the old talk pages in the 00s decade), it was brought up that Bip was never actually named on-screen, and the only mention of his "name" came from the 1979 record "Every Body's Record" (which I don't even recall if there was even much discussion about it or not), but anyway.... this was something that was kind of pandering my mind for awhile - I feel like the article could use a bit of re-wording as the way it's worded describes that the record indicated that it knew this song was performed by the Sesame Street counterpart of Mahna Mahna (who really only appeared in season 5 and may as well have been long forgotten by that point before the Workshop decided "Hey, let's make Mahna Mahna into a Sesame Street character again and really expand on him more with new songs!" six years later in 1985), when in reality I feel like it was very clear they just decided to reform "Mahna Mahna" onto Sesame Street at the last minute when re-recording the song (since the album version was a different recording like most album releases in season 16). The truth is, since that song was originally made for albums only, it could have easily just been a generic Anything Muppet beatnik-type character with Jim's Dr. Teeth voice, and likewise the back-up female vocals could have easily just been a group of female Anything Muppets instead of pigs that would transition into the Oinker Sisters one season later. Plus, if we're being honest, Sesame Workshop clearly forgot the name of the character to begin with - many of their old releases of his songs on their YouTube channel and SS.org site either listed him as "Mahna Mahna" or "a man." The fact that all Bip even said was "Mahna Mahna" in his 2009 cameo shows he was meant to be nothing more than a nameless "Mahna Mahna" look alike counterpart on the show.I did some experimenting on the page but felt I should bring this up on the forum before making the changes as I definitely feel there should be some thoughts from other folks on here as well. Here's a preview image to show an idea of how I feel like the article could be fixed up a bit, but again, I am curious to hear some thoughts. (Everything else below these first two screenshots are the same).
