So the Grandparents Celebration street story is on the Celebrate Family DVD and you just forgot while making a list of its contents? That makes me feel better to know I didn't get rid of my DVR recording of that episode for nothing.
I'd suspected it was Joe Silver from previous clues, but we needed a direct statement and now we have it. Yay! I'm excited to start the page, bunch of neat connections there (i.e. he sang a Raposo song in the Raggedy Ann and Andy movie.)
I've kept wondering on that one whether it was before or after "I'll Miss You Mr. Hooper" (or possibly a stopgap while they prepared that episode). (And I was off by a season anyway. The Count would be ashamed of me).
Heya, I've been meaning to remake the Polaroid video supercut to include the one stray I didn't have at the time. Is the "Flatter Flash" commercial online anywhere? Or any others we're missing? I can include em all.
Hey, Shane. Just wanted to say thank you for the logo removal. I actually did Spot Heal it out when I was creating the image, but although I had cropped in and cut out a lot of dead space (to bring the two pairs of balls closer together), I wasn't sure if removing the logo would be breaking or bending any rules regarding Photoshop (even though it was just black), so I ultimately undid the Spot Heal and kept it in.
Hope I'm not bugging you too much, but since you're primarily working on Season 11, this might be an 'opportune' time for me to mention this. I remember you changing the sponsors to Episode 1405 to reflect the content you inserted for that episode. However, according to the CTW notes, not only are the sponsors for that episode 'C,' 'E,' and '3,' but the actual contents seem to indicate that those letters and number are the sponsors (of course, judging from what the segment descriptions are). Here's the page with the notes for that episode. Again, hope you don't mind looking into this. Thanks.
"Printing deadlines for the Sesame Street Script Highlights precede the final editing of the programs. For that reason, an occasional segment listed may not be included or may appear in a different location in the broadcast."
So while these docs have helped us in the past, they themselves state they are not always 100% reflective of the episode as aired.
Of the six pages using File:Toon-Cracks.jpg, the first time we attributed a "first" appearance for it appears to be in July of 2014. Do we remember where we go that? I did the guide for Episode 0818 today thinking it was definitively the first appearance, but I couldn't confirm it in any scripts.
Not sure how much this helps, but this copy: (YouTube) has a little slate at the beginning with the production code "06-0431," meaning produced for season 6. It might have been held over until season 7, which is where #0818 is from.
