  • Curious to know whether the source of Wavin' Goodbye to You with My Heart specifies whether or not Michael Earl was puppeteering Polly Darton. As discussed before, he indicated in the past Polly being one of his characters, and Jeanie Bennet's audio doesn't match what the announcer called the venue.

    • Well, it's a possibility that MAYBE Karen Prell is lip-synching to Jeanie's vocals. Perhaps Michael Earl was probably doing puppetry for one of the three musicians or something.

      It does not.

    • Michael Earl himself had added the info that he performed Polly Darton, and that's the only known appearance of her during his time on the show (there could be unaired segments), if that helps. 

      All this time, I thought she was voiced by Fran Brill in that appearance, but the info lists a name I am unfamiliar with.

  • Deep thoughts on "Do De Rubber Duck":

    1.) Jerry Nelson isn't listed. Do your sources indicate whether or not he was performing The Count here?

    2.) It's confirmed that Noel MacNeal worked Oscar and David Rudman did Kermit, but do we know for sure that those Caroll and Jim looped their lines later on, after the fact? Seems like extra work to me, as you'd be working with a prerecorded song track in the first place.

  • I really love all the information you're giving out for most of our songs. By the way, where did you get the information? If you know, do you have anymore. Songs like maybe Put Down The Duckie, One Banana, Wet Paint, or The Ten Commandments of Health, just to name a few?

    • I just wanted to join the bandwagon in thanking you and the other admins for the additional performer and director info. It's fun to see who was involved in the various inserts, and quite a coincidence that we were discussing puppeteer styles on ToughPigs, and now we're getting confirmation from the trusted sources.

  • Hi :)

    Is there any other place we could mention the 30-framerate speed in the article? I still feel like it's worth mentioning, and besides that, it really irks me how lazy digitizing has become for DVDs nowadays...

  • Hi, Shane:

    I see that you just created a table for Episode 1120, and thought I could use the Ray Barretto picture from Episode 0966 to finish up the 'non-Street-scene' segments.  However, was the one I used of poorer quality?  Sorry if it was.  I took the one you added and used that for Episode 0966 as well.  Thanks and take care.

    • Nah, I just prefer images being in the correct cropping/aspect ratio. The one I added is a little more representative of the segment itself.

        Loading editor
    • OK, just wondered.  Also, I see that Episode 0971 is fully guided, meaning that there's only one more episode - 1255 - from the current HBO Max list which has yet to be completed (it's tabled, but not fully imaged).  Lookin' good!

  • To keep the home video pages out of war, the same thing that I've told John about these leftovers can be found by looking into the disc especially the other Muppet DVDs you own. So those things where the DVD has content that was stored, but never used in the final product should be noted that way others know interesting things that were cut from the release.

    • What I was trying to put there was the two silent menus (one for the correct answer and the other for the wrong one) were used as placeholders for navigation to the next question after answering one, but can't be viewed when that gets entered which was necessary to be noted incase they later get removed or re-used on re-issues.

      Sometimes when they release DVDs like that, they leave something they forgot to remove before releasing even when there's no way the viewer can reach that menu not even an easter egg or couldn't blank it out and instead made it the cell's placeholder for another purpose.

    • I'm afraid we really don't track menu filler and placeholders. That's the kind of thing you can list on your user page if you really want to, but it doesn't help our articles. It will just continue to be removed if you keep adding it (just like we don't track packaging barcode numbers or other things which might be true but don't really fit our purpose).

  • Hi, sorry, I was wondering, in light of your reasons for editing the COVID-19 pandemic page, could I perhaps mention on there that it impacted the USA with regards to Henson/Muppet projects? I thought it would acknowledge the wider global impact and any Henson/Muppet productions? I don’t want to cause any trouble, but I also just don’t want people to feel like they have been left out in some way, you see.

    • I know nothing on that, sorry. Over on the Muppet Central forums, you might be able to find something of that nature.

  • Hi, Shane:

    I understand what you did with Episode 0552 - only one picture of the 'Harvey Kneeslapper OPEN' series is needed for now.

    Also, I posted on someone else's wall (Splurge, I believe) about me wanting to 'fill in' Season 5 with as many 'Firsts' and 'EKAs' as possible.  I'm trying to help Guillermo (MuppetVJ), as I assume he will move into tabling episodes where needed for Season 5 when he's done with Season 4.

    I also mentioned about being an administrator for Muppet Wiki.  I was just curious if there's any 'process' involved.  Does one 'apply' (like filling out a job application in response to a help-wanted ad), does one 'get elected' (like putting one's name on a ballot once every so many years), or is there another method?

    Just wondering, and hope you don't mind me asking.  Thanks.

      Depends at how productive we feel.

    • OK, just wondered.  Since this is an 'all-volunteer' effort with no paid employees (as far as I know), it's not like we have to 'put something on a truck' by a certain date.  But it's still nice to get 'glimpses of the past' when I see the contents of various episodes of years past 'revealed.'  Thanks again.

  • Before considering leaving the new Narf design off, the new design has bolder eyelashes compared to the old puppet from Monster Clubhouse if you double check by comparing both, then add it back before deleting.

  • Heya, do you remember which episode File:E 104th St ep1947.jpg comes from? I marked this similar image with the episode number. It's kind of interesting that they were consistent enough with the E 104th St location to incorporate it into the set at least twice. I'd like to keep both images since they're different, but figured we should at least pinpoint the season it appears in (episode, if you can remember).
