Looking at the cold starts from season two onwards of TMS, I wonder if it is worth mentioning the various photos that can be seen in the guest star dressing room.  Something like "to the left of the door can be seen a photo of Gonzo in drag (from Episode 1.xx Charles Aznavour) and a photo of Kermit and the Snowths (from Episode 1.01 Juliet Prowse)."  There are also photos on the back walls and a telephone as well that sometimes changes position.  Same thing for the photos that can be seen in the Muppet Canteen, Kermit's office etc.  That level of detail may seem trivial, however when you sort the cold starts out from taping dates you realize there is a bit of continuity going on with the photos.

I've noticed the same. Not sure how super detailed we want to get about tracking them. If there are multiple in a single episode, I could see maybe listing them on one bullet point in the Notes section of the episode. β€”Scott latest?cb=20200820192427 (talk) 12:45, September 26, 2020 (UTC)
If they turn out to be more consistent (or if specific spots are used to rotate photos), they might fit on the appropriate location pages. Guest Star's Dressing Room already notes some of the props tailored to fit what the guest star is known for (or what Sam *thinks* they're known for). -- Andrew Emoji-drool.gifAdminsig.png 18:11, September 26, 2020 (UTC)
So here's an example of what it could look like.  This entry is for the Star Wars episode.  "On the wall that Luke Skywalker, C3PO and R2D2 burst through are photos of Scooter & Kenny Rogers in Kenny's dressing room, Spike Milligan from the It's a Small Word number, Kermit & Fozzie facing each other and a group shot of Marisa Berenson and the Muppets in front of the stage curtain."  Looking at the cold starts of seasons four and five, the b/w photos are no longer by the door and instead framed colour photos of different character appear on the walls.  In addition, the rooms have been refurbished completely with different windows.

As long as we're tracking that stuff, we may as well also start cataloguing the circus-style posters that appeared on the walls of the theatre. GrantHarding (talk) 14:32, October 8, 2020 (UTC)
Agreed! Sandbox? β€”Scott latest?cb=20200820192427 (talk) 14:41, October 8, 2020 (UTC)
