  • Hey Andrew,

    Do you think this image is Mark Antony or Rudolph Valentino? I'm really thinking it is Valentino. -- Nate (talk) 15:29, October 6, 2011 (UTC)

    • Valentino, obviously, from The Sheik (1921). I'm not sure why anone assumed it was Mark Antony. Neat find though (with Gilchrist art even).

    • Thank you. I thought maybe I was crazy or something. :)

    • I assumed it was Mark Antony because it has Cleopatra as the other mug in the set. Also because I have not thought this much about Valentino in ... probably ever. And it's been on the wiki for awhile, so at least putting it in the wrong spot let Nate make his page  :p

    • I'm so happy about that. It is ironic 'cause Valentino was named as one of the top fifty or something silver screen heart throbs in some show I skimmed past last night on tv, and it made me smile.

  • I thought of something to write back to you after all! I was curious why your message to me and my reply was showing up in Recent Changes under the message title "Hi ho!" instead of a redlink that said Message Wall:ErnieBert. So I thought I'd start a new message to you to see what happens.

    • Yeah, that's what's happening right now. I discussed it with Scott and Wendy, seems that's not how it's supposed to work so Danny's looking at it (this is still the incomplete test run, really). Right now, the best way to tell the difference is to see if something new has no "diff" or "history" slots before the title. But that should be changed eventually, although I suspect it's behind a few of the bigger issues which Danny mentioned are still "in progress" as far as priority.

  • Hey, have you seen this yet? I'm dying to know if it's a dub, or just a translated cover, because that will affect what we do with it (like the Muppet Show records that are actually in French). Have you heard what they're going to do with the Spanish dubbing yet?

    • Oh, and of course, Clarence Nash redubbed Donald *phonetically* in several languages, including the Spanish tracks for Three Caballeros and "Saludos Amigos". And Laurel and Hardy, in the pre-dubbing era, did alternate language versions of their shorts in French, Spanish and I think others, relying on phonetics and cue cards, paired with different supporting actors who could usually speak the language (in one French version, the part of a crook is given to a pre-stardom Boris Karloff, because he was multilingual!) They're pretty hilarious, especially the Spanish ones, and it's a joy to watch Stan and Ollie speak Spanish with even more pronunciation and accent difficulties than *I* have!

    • Short P.S. I forgot to mention that Ratatouille must have been interesting as a film where people are speaking Spanish in a film set in France. That's the opposite of Carmen, which is an opera set in Spain, but everybody speaks French! Or even worse, Puccini's The Girl of the Golden West, which is an opera set in the United States, but everybody speaks Italian!

  • Good Afternoon, Andrew!

    I was browsing for pictures of one of my favorite singers, Mahalia Jackson, and as I was searching, I came across your posting of Mahalia on Episode 0029. I know that there are a few volumes of SESAME STREET: OLD SCHOOL, but I don't believe the episode with Mahalia is included. Would you happen to know for sure if she is featured on the DVD set? If she isn't, would there happen to be a way to acquire it? I know how it is when it comes to old footage/recordings and copyrights, etc, so any help you could give would definitely be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    • Hi, Dwayne! I love Mahalia Jackson as well. That particular episode isn't on DVD or anywhere else, *but* the good news is they reused the segment in other episodes. See Episode 0056, which you can buy and download from iTunes (either as part of Sesame Street Classics: Volume 1, or as a single episode for about three dollars or whatever). Hope this helps!

    • Thanks Andrew! The info you've provided really does help! I will look into this today. Thanks again!

  • Muy buenas desde España! Voy siguiendo las fotos de Alfonso Vallejo dentro del traje de Don Pimpon para que cambieis la foto por que es erronea. Esa persona no es Alfonso, es Jose Manuel Reyes, mi padre. El y mi tio se encargaban del mantenimiento de Espinete y Don Pimpon. Les dejaban sacar los muñecos para sesiones de fotos. Para que lo confirmes te dejo la direcciones de su pagina web: http://www.terra.es/personal2/urpiano/

    Atte: Ingra.

  • Hi Aleal. I had a question to ask you. I know this episode was about Biff building a bookshelf. This page needs content. IS THERE ANYWAY THAT SOMEBODY CAN UPLOAD IT? It is from Season (1994-1995). Please let me know!

    Thanks!

    • First, that's presuming that one of the currently active members actually owns a copy of the episode. Second, it presumes that they have the ability to convert it to disc and then screengrab from it. Third, it presumes a *lot* of time and effort. Mostly though, it's simply because it's not in circulation.

      Leaving rambling messages requesting episodes you remember and creating multiple accounts to do so (it appears to be a dozen at last count) won't make it happen.

    • Is there anyway I can break that habit? I do realize that it is a habit of mine.

  • Hi, Aleal! I thank you so much for that message, (in case you didn't see it). I thank you for your guidance, and yes, I have learned my lesson. So, next time that I go on a wiki, weather it is this one, or wiki community, or Disney wiki, or even my own wikis or whatever, I will learn from all of my mistakes that I have made on this wiki. So, with this all being said, what should I do next time I go on another wiki?

  • Sorry, I didn't mean to cause problems. I'm just fed up with causal fans thinking that The Muppet Show and Sesame Street are the same thing. I've seen some facebook comments from people wondering why Cookie Monster, Big Bird, and Snuffy aren't in the new Muppets movie. I feel that this is a major problem. Especially since they are now owned by separate companies, it confuses things further. There is so much ignorance out there.

    • It's not a big thing, just a Muppet Wiki style issue we settled some years back (and that's also why the main page has that section below discussing the main Henson works and characters). I can understand your annoyance but linking to the category won't make a difference to those people you're talking about anyway, and as I said, we use Muppet to refer to any character who is, well, a Muppet, but we do also specify "On the Muppet Show, such and such" or use phrases like "Sesame Street Muppets" and so on when appropriate (especially when clarifying group appearances, for example). It's just not something we need to do every time because while we are an encyclopedia, undue worry about casual fans' assumptions and rumors in every article could get both clunky and in fact a little POV; instead, we have Category:Rumors for lots of things of that kind. I've often thought of something like "Was Miss Piggy on Sesame Street?" and somewhere I do have a handful of examples in mainstream media (since we don't just count "What people say or think on forums"); the most interesting example was during one of the big Sesame anniversaries (I think it was the 25th) and a TV Guide article on it asked celebs to discuss their favorite Muppets, and while everything else was about the Sesame Mupps, they quoted Johnny Cash on Miss Piggy (adding to the confusion) and I've seen one or two old Sesame Street Live or other appearance listings, in small papers usually, which imply or outright state that Kermit and Miss Piggy are either from Sesame Street or will be in Sesame Street Live.

      To clarify the comparative rarity with which Sesame and Muppet Show crossed-over though (outside of Kermit as a full regular in the initial seasons and still an active if more sporadic presence until Jim Henson's death), you'd be best showing such people Crossovers. (It is rather sad that they couldn't get Elmo for The Muppets though). And I just now realized I inadvertently edited your old talk page instead of the wall, heh (I'm tired and I've been too busy lately to properly use the walls enough to remember).
