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?
Is there any way I could gain access to those? That still doesn't answer my question of do you have more though? I don't think when you wrote down who directed Healthy Food, you didn't write in who were the puppeteers aside from Cookie Monster. Or maybe aside from Noel MacNeal and Jim Henson in Do-Op Hop, I suppose you don't know who were the puppeteers for the animals?
I apologize for butting myself into this conversation, but I just want to say I really appreciate this newly-discovered information that I honestly would have never thought was true in terms of puppetry and voices (for instance, I did not think Paul Jacobs provided backing vocals in “Rock ‘N Roll Readers” - I was definitely certain that was Cerf. But alas, the ears can fool you. I also had a hunch Hunt was puppeteering Chrissy from the head bops).
Anyway, I hope it’s not too much trouble to ask - is this information only limited to songs from certain years or pretty much every song? Because there have been certain background characters I have been eager to know in terms of puppetry (The Moo Wave and Nickmatics for starters). Anyway, thank you for contributing this newly-discovered info! Can’t wait to see more!
Edit: never mind, seems the question above was (slightly) answered.
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.
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...
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.
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.
It certainly is important, sure. But I don't think the way we have it now is trivializing it or downplaying the issue. "particularly in the United States" is the wording we use, mainly because all the projects relevant to the Wiki are US-based things. If we find out some London Creature Shop got postponed, sure we could change it, but I see no issue as it is.
Also, I was wondering, are there any resources you guys can recommend on how to build a Muppet (aside from Instructables.com)? It's just I currently work as an English teacher in a Chinese kindergarten, and am thinking of applying for training to become a nursery teacher (nurseries being what we in the UK call kindergartens). I thought a completely original Fraggle Rock-style character, not a full body one like Junior, or a live hand one like Mokey, but a rod hand one like Wembley or Red, would be best suited for my students, but am not too sure how to make one.
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.
There isn't any formal process for becoming an admin. I don't think there's any intention on rallying up any more at this point - there hasn't been a new admin promotion since 2011, and we have 11 admins who are (mostly) around on a regular basis, so it seems like we have things well handled for now.
OK, just wondered - thanks. If only I had some actual footage or notes in my own hands, I could contribute more. But for now, I have to go by the information about what others find and enter in to the Wiki first (especially with the 'First' and 'EKA' attributes) before I can 'do my thing.' At least that's how it is for most cases. Thanks again for responding.
No problem. Also, like I mentioned, while I know that Seasons 14 through 19 are gradually being 'filled in' by you and other admins, it's the earlier episodes (like the ones Guillermo's getting into) which I find more 'attractive' since I recognize more of the segments from my 'viewing days.' Also, is it possible that every Sesame Street episode might be at least tabled by the end of this year, or is it hard to tell? Just wondering.
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).
