  • Hi, Sam! If you see this, there's been some edit warring on Wilkins Coffee transcripts. I know it's been a couple of years, but can you remember your source for the "Bank Robber" segment? First someone tried to rewrite to match a Community Coffee segment, and then to take it out entirely. I know you used screenings and such for your sources on a lot of this.

      He probably got it from Jim's Red Book. There was an article of the first Wilkins ads being made with a picture of Jim's idea for the "Bank Robber" commercial as an illustration.

      If I remember correctly, I did use the storyboards from Jim Henson's Red book for the "Bank Robber" transcript as well for a few other commercials.

      And to clear any other doubt, all the commercials that haven't surfaced yet are sourced from this old ToughPigs.com article (which has the Community Coffee version of "Bank Robber"): http://www.toughpigs.com/madison-1/

  • I noticed that you started updating the segment list for season 3. I really like how you've formatted the page, but I think you're doing more work than necessary.

    As discussed on my message wall, I think it would be better to list items in chronological order rather than by curriculum concepts. Not only would it be easier to keep track of inserts (especially considering the speed to which Guillermo has been churning out full guides) but it also eliminates the guesswork of labeling educational goals to the segments. (I doubt that the "Four Seasons" cartoon was about counting -- no numbers are even mentioned.)

    Please check out my post on the message board concerning these lists as well; I'd like to know your input.

    • The reformatting I've made yesterday was a test, nothing final.

      I was planning to format the season 3 page for only its first two episodes akin to the season 1 page and then later today do the same for the first two episodes of the season 4 page but formatted in chronological order akin to this page Sandbox:Sesame Street Test Shows Segments so to get a concrete idea of how it would look.

      As for the "Four Seasons" song,  it's filed under "Songs about four" on the wiki so I went off of that

    • Thanks for clarifying. I really like how the test show page is coming; it's neat to see what did and didn't work for the pilots. Have you seen the ERIC documents on the pilot shows? That's where the additional info for the remaining shows came from.

  • Heya Sam, thanks for adding a source for this.

    However, it's still not clear whether or not it's an intentional reference on the part of Lennon. Urish and Bielen seem rather confused on the issue. (see attached)...

    Lennon Cookie

      Passing as it may be, at least the mention in "I'm Stepping Out" is a much more definite and concrete mention. I think it's worth noting.

    • Oh, HELLs yeah. The "I'm Stepping Out" reference is 1,000 percent definitive. Saying "cookie" is not (again, unless there's a source).

      The "regression therapy" is interesting, and if evidence can be found that Sesame Street was used, it may even be enough for Lennon to have his own article.

      For now, I'll go ahead and add "Stepping" to The Beatles article until we get some more Lennon specific stuff.

  • Hey Sam, what makes you think proto-Grover was built for The Musical Monsters of Turkey Hollow?

      Loading editor
    • To be honest it's pretty much an educated guess: from the few behind the scene photos that exist and the designs from the graphic novel I figured proto-Grover might have been created for the special since his fur color and material and overall design match the other musical monsters'.

      Perhaps it's just a coincidence but then again I discovered, from other pictures I've just found, than even more puppets where used for the special that nobody knew about like one of heads of The Rock and Roll Monster and Thudge (who looks quite different from all other monsters), but there's still no trace of Grover (or that strange oversize Snerf from the hungry piano sketch for that matter) in any picture; maybe it is really a coincidence but I'd like to keep the possibilities open.

    • Thanks, but adding information to the wiki based on speculation is strictly prohibited.

      Please look over Muppet Wiki:Citations and the rest of our policies in the GET STARTED button on the right side of every article.

      If you can find a source that the proto-Grover puppet was to be used for Turkey Hollow, please feel free to add it back.

    • Alright, I'll keep that in mind next time

  • Hi! You added File:Sclrap Flyapp.png to the Sclrap Flyapp page last September, but there's no indication which version it is. I have the Mike Douglas performance and it doesn't match that, and the Ed Sullivan version is in color so I know it's not that. So is the screenshot from The Today Show or The Tonight Show?

  • Hi, and thanks for adding to the Muppet Show Goofs page. Please don't add pictures to the wiki that have circles of boxes on them. It makes it hard to use them elsewhere. If there's a goof in the screenshot, it will be clear to see where it is. Thanks!

  • Hi. Thanks for the image of A. B. C-more from the Lord of the Rings parody. I've deleted it because there's a circle edited into the picture, which we don't use here. If you'd like to re-upload it without the circle, you're welcome to do so. Thanks!
