  • Can't believe I didn't think of this sooner, but I added a section to Sandbox:Episodic actors on Sesame for visual references for roles not given actor names in the scripts.

    Some of these may be Sesame crew, or non-researchable actors, but I hope it might help in some fashion (short video samples can also be arranged too if needed).

    • Some more research results: Can't find any visuals for Noel Twitchell; unless there's another older actor in the scene, at a guess I'd say the bearded guy since his career dated to 1964. He came from Utah (and worked on several Mormon stage projects and one of those LDS animated Bible videos) but by 1991 was in New York and mainly a set builder/stagehand (and a linkedin lists him as an NBC electrician). So he could have been hired as an extra *or* been doing crew work and just used. (Peter Michaud might be the same as a relatively younger stage actor in New Hampshire, which would make him the guy next to Blumenkrantz, but not sure from the visual evidence, could be different guy with same name).

      Antoinette Greene is probably this lady. If there's an older woman in the scene, "Faye Greenbaum" *might* be Fay Greenbaum, who did translation and interpretive work for NY stage shows working from the Russian and is probably the same Fay Greenbaum in the 1988 TV movie Lincoln. More work needed there. Carmen Bonafont turns up a small part actress in one 1996 TV movie and a 1998 indie flick (both shot in NY, so promising, but both also inaccessible) and a Carmen Bonafont who's a musician born and living in Barcelona (so definitely not her). Zilch on Michelle Speer.

      Dr. Marzullo, comparing with her appearance in 1973's film of Godspell, it's doubtful it's Lynne Thigpen (though I can see the resemblance and there's definitely an earlier appearance from her on Sesame somewhere, from her 1979 Playbill bio). The folks on Facebook or wherever it was suggesting it was Madge Sinclair are also wrong (thanks to a 1972 short on the Salem witch trials which prominently features Sinclair).

      ETA: Antoinette Green's IBDbPro resume, while some is obscured or inaccessible to non-subscribers, shows "Sesame Street/day player," confirming she's the one.

    • Nice! Here's a few more visuals. Antoinette should be the woman in the third image, it seems. Fay Greenbaum might be the woman on the right in the second pic.

  • Hey man, are you still working on that article about commerce on Sesame Street? The episode where Maria gets hired at the Fix-It Shop has a sequence where Big Bird and a kid walk out with items that have been fixed on the spot, but they don't pay.

    In contrast to another episode guide I recently did (I forget which, I'll have to look it up) where David tricks Dr. Nobel Price (I think) into paying for something he scammed David out of in Hooper's Store.

    • I wonder if instances where characters discuss things being free/on the house would qualify.

    • I wonder if the ending of Don't Eat the Pictures: Sesame Street at the Metropolitan Museum of Art should warrant a mention. At the end, Bob says he's so proud of Cookie Monster for not eating the pictures that he can have anything he wants for breeakfast, which I take to mean Bob is agreeing/offering to pay for Cookie's food, though to a kid, it could be seen as a parent letting their kid eat anything they want.

  • Hey man, fairly certain this film insert (EKA: Episode 0491) features Paul Dooley as the cop. Plus, there's a bonus gorilla suit...

  • I added the word "altogether" to the Bob page in order to illustrate that his removal from the show was an intensification of his role having been diminished. I would have appreciated it if you had given consideration to the likely thought process behind my edit before you reverted it; it's what I try to do when I edit.

    Thank you.

    • Brittany... Andrew left an edit summary. Edit summaries can be found on each article's History log.

    • I saw that; I was responding to the edit and the summary.

    • "Phased out" means that in itself. Altogether (which also follows a clause about "most of the other humans" so not just about Bob) isn't really necessary there. At least I still don't understand why it would be, which is what I said in my summary. That was the consideration I gave it.

    • I was thinking of "altogether" as in "completely". That's why the word looked like a good fit to me.

    1339 Big Bird's Doctor

    Hey man, Big Bird's doctor is not credited in the script for Episode 1339, but I figured if he was a character actor, you might know who he is.
