I'll be taking over for HighJewElfKing but just like Charlie, I'm here to help out however I can, just let me know. You can usually find me on Discord (my username is penguinstyles#9735), however, I'm happy to use whatever contact medium you prefer.
If you have any questions for me, please let me know. I'll try to respond to them as quickly as I can.
I don't know if you saw over on ToughPigs, but somebody figured out the TZ music from The Bard. It was used on 2 Spanish cartoons, and he put up YouTube links for them. One was for "YO", and one was for "CASA". So now I'm wondering, were they made for the US show, or maybe for Plaza Sesamo, and then for us? Now that you can see the cartoons, would you happen to know who the animators or voice actors were? I figured if anybody could help on this, it would be you. That the cartoons turned out to be Spanish is even cooler! Anyway, I've got a bunch of stuff to catch up on, but I wanted to write to you here, since I've been talking about it for 13 years!
Hey, I'm in shock again! Remember the Carol Burnett Show I told you about that is supposed to have Vicki Lawrence doing Mahna Mahna? Well, it's on YouTube, and I don't know what to do with what I found. It's Vicki Lawrence and Don Creighton dressed up as Ruth Buzzi and Arte Johnson as the old man and old lady from Laugh-In, and they're doing a comedy/dance number to the original recording of Mahna Mahna, and then, Ruth and Arte make a surprise guest appearance! As I've said before, this was broadcast on 11/17/69, so I don't know if it was a Sesame reference, since they hadn't done it yet. But then again, how many people saw Sweden, Heaven and Hell? There was a 45 of the movie version of Mahna Mahna, but it only went to #55 on the pop chart. So what do you think we should do with it? It's here, at 23:46. I love the Laugh-In reference, as well as finally knowing that they were using the original version. I just don't think it's a Sesame reference yet. I was going to put this farther down the page, but I didn't know if you'd see it.
Sorry for being a bit 'premature' about adjusting Episode 0748. You're right - there are a couple of 'G' segments as well (Alice and the Gorilla Employment Agency). So, by rights, should the sponsors be 'G', 'I', and '7'? Please let me know. Thanks.
Like a lot of things, I think it made more sense in the early days of the wiki but also when we had more limited info on outside visitors. Mr. Macintosh brought his cart to the street (and gathered his produce) from outside per dialogue, compared to the others who had their homes and shops right there.
Now that we've had more visitors documented (hello, Arnold Hooper), it may make less sense. I took off the citation tag because that's not the issue, but I'm fine with rewording, dropping, or simplifying.
I think Unpaved might have also referred to Mr. Mac as an outside visitor, not that that means much now with direct sources available.
I'm wondering if there's anyway I could view or download multiple seasons of your episode-breakdowns at once?
I mean, each episode has a table that lists what happens in the episode, but I'd like to view a whole season (or even mulitple seasons) at once in a single table, as in a spreadsheet or database. Is this possible either through the site or by downloading a .csv type file or something like that?
Hey, Andrew! Happy Anniversary tomorrow! Scott uploaded a picture of a record from Sesame Street Music Magazine, and it looks like it has an audio clip of Gloria Gaynor singing "Never Can Say Goodbye". Does that mean she gets a page on the wiki? I wasn't sure because they probably just licensed her hit single, but on the other hand, I'm thinking this would be like when Muppet Babies used clips of random movies. What do you think?
UPDATE: It looks like the contents on this record were used again the following year, so now I'm wondering if they used printed material multiple times, too. I wish we could find copies of these! While the records are nice, sometimes they don't make sense without the magazine in front of you!
