I noticed that you put Kevin Clash as the performer of The Great Quackini. I haven't seen the episode in years, but if memory serves John Tartaglia was the one performing most (if not all) of the duck characters at the time. Of course, memories are a crummy source for this wiki, so do you know if anyone with access to the episode can confirm?
I was hoping someone could ID the performer with production notes or something like that- I tried listening closer and heard a distinct Benny Rabbit somewhere in there, however I couldn't be sure. You may be right, though.
No performer identified in the script. It seems strange to me to assume that one person would be performing all the ducks during a given time. Hopefully the clip is helpful (this thread might have gotten more visibility in the forum).
Yeah, that's definitely Tartaglia. It's almost as if they were planning to make him a regular character. He also played a duck in episodes 3994, 4021, 4039, 4081, and segments with Diane Sawyer and the Count (Number of the Day #6). He similarly plays a penguin in episode 3995. So, not so much an assumption as it is examples of how frequently he's done it.
Maria and Olivia are sleeping (presumably in a barn) on a big pile of hay. Olivia, speaking in a deep southern accent, is imagining sheep jumping over a fence, and gets to counting them up to one thousand and four, when she gives up on counting sheep. Maria, also speaking in a deep southern accent, wakes up and suggests she read a book. Meanwhile, two tired sheep who had just come back from jumping over fences arrive at the foot of Olivia's pile of hay. They want to sleep as well, but are wide awake. They decide to count people, and ask Olivia (who is reading a book) if they can count her. She agrees, and gets up and leaves. The sheep wonder what she looks like outside and imagine her jumping a fence. One of the sheep thinks the whole thing is boring, and falls asleep, and pretty quickly the other counts himself to sleep, too. Olivia comes back, exhausted, and tells Maria that what's better than counting sheep is being counted by sheep. Maria hears the remark, and brushes it off as ridiculous. They both go to sleep.
Thanks for retrieving all of those episode guides (mostly Seasons 11 and 12) from the University of Maryland's CTW Archives center - they bring back a wide range of memories I have of the show, as I try to 'deduce' or 'figure' out which particular clip might have demonstrated which topic/concept/letter/number on a particular episode. Hope I'm not being rude in asking, but do you have any actual episodes from those years (on VHS/DVD. etc.), or just the notes? Again, just wondering. Thanks.
Hey! No, I actually don't. I don't really collect SS stuff. A few days before I went to the archives, Shane suggested I get the script highlights for Season 11 and 12, so I did, and I looked like an idiot just taking pictures with Microsoft Office Lens from overhead for about 45 minutes. But to answer your question, no. I don't have any VHSs or DVDs of those episodes.
OK, Gav, just wondered. Who knows - maybe some of these episodes will actually be available on DVD or the like to everyone. The first 15 episodes of Season 12 (1446-1460) are 'out for public view,' and most of these have been uploaded to YouTube. So, time will tell. Thanks again for responding.
Hey Gav. When adding pictures to a page, please don't insert them at random, like you did here. Images should all align on the right side of the page, the code stacked one after another like I did here.
If you're still using one of the WYSIWYG editors, please stop using them. They don't work. Go to your Preferences and choose SOURCE EDITOR next to the Preferred editor field. This will help us all work together to keep the wiki maintained in a neat and orderly fashion. Thanks!
