Picking up from where we left off regarding this locked post here.

Do we have a production date for Episode 0110 from the scripts? Getty Images has a kit and caboodle of photos of the street scenes including George Zima as the street cleaner. Sometimes their "Date Created" is incorrect, so while it tracks that it's March 1970, I doubt it's March 1. --Splurge (talk) 23:46, 20 January 2021 (UTC)

March 13, 1970. β€”Scott latest?cb=20200820192427 (talk) 23:52, 20 January 2021 (UTC)
Thanks, Scott. And good call in making this a centralized forum topic for similar queries. More coming soon. --Splurge (talk) 19:33, 17 February 2021 (UTC)

Trip to Puerto Rico: If Episode 1316 had different production dates for remote footage and for the cold open's studio scenes, back then would the scripts tend to indicate as such? --Splurge (talk) 20:07, 17 February 2021 (UTC)

It only says February 1979; the others have no dates. Episode 1321 was shot in October 5, but there's no indication 1316 was done the same day. - Oscarfan (talk) 20:16, 17 February 2021 (UTC)
Interesting. I'm guessing the script for Episode 1321 doesn't explicitly differentiate between Scene 1's remote footage and the rest of the episode. --Splurge (talk) 23:37, 17 February 2021 (UTC)

What's the production date for Stevie Wonder segments in Episode 0514? (Someone needs to set Getty straight here, I have doubts they were taped two weeks after airing.) I wouldn't be surprised if Big Bird on unicycle ending was taped separately, but that's just me. --Splurge (talk) 12:11, 18 February 2021 (UTC)

January 9, 1973. β€”Scott latest?cb=20200820192427 (talk) 13:09, 18 February 2021 (UTC)

Sensing a chronology here in 1986 - Episode 2320. While we're at it, would the script indicate anyone else operating Biff in Scene 4 while Jerry was voicing? --Splurge (talk) 00:13, 14 June 2021 (UTC)

Date added. And no, it doesn't indicate any alternate puppeteers. - Shane latest?cb=20200820192427 <small(talk) 00:52, 14 June 2021 (UTC)

New topic: Toby Towson as proto-Barkley: Episode 1177 and Episode 1184. --Splurge (talk) 12:00, 11 July 2021 (UTC)

Update: Thanks! --Splurge (talk) 19:36, 11 July 2021 (UTC)

Episode 0115: I don't suppose the script indicates whether Melvin Meanie was voiced by Kermit Love. (35:00 min mark on iTunes episode.) I guess a production date would be a sufficient consolation prize, because history. --Splurge (talk) 13:04, 14 July 2021 (UTC)

It only says "Phone Voice" with no casting note or such. - Shane latest?cb=20200820192427 (talk) 13:39, 14 July 2021 (UTC)
