Related to the work we've been doing with expanding our Sesame Street episode guides (Thread:253692), you may be seeing some visuals uploaded by myself that won't have been seen anywhere before. I can't tell you where I got them, and I won't be posting (many) clips or sharing these materials outside of the wiki. I know there's content that fans have been craving to see for many years, but we're beholden to the trust of our anonymous and reliable sources. As co-founder, and an active member of maintaining the integrity of this wiki since 2005, I ask for your patience while we work through this content. Any requests on my wall for the acquisition of these materials will be ignored. Thanks for understanding.

Creating a Sesame Street episode guide

UPDATE: Partially in response to the fact that I continue to get inundated with requests related to this project (and partially for historical documentation), I put together a video to demonstrate the process through which we go to put together a single episode guide. The recording time took two hours which I edited down to 90 minutes, but this is a typical time frame as you'll see in the video. Click the embedded media to the right to launch the video within the wiki, or follow through to YouTube where I've included timestamps to areas of interest. Thanks again for your continued support and understanding.

    • Hi Emma, I'm sorry your first experience here had to be a reverted edit. But this addition isn't really up to our standard. Imagine if ten more people after you added sentences just like that. It wouldn't read very well.

  • Hi Scott!

    Do you remember how you found this image here for Super Morphin Mega Monsters: "Don't Litter?" We currently have it listed as an unaired insert but I'm recall it being broadcast, probably during that winter of repacked episodes from the Slimey to the Moon space arc. (It being another space reference, I suppose.)

    It may have aired only once and, as I say, not for an original episode, but I remember thinking they used the AM girl design elsewhere.

    Thanks!

    • I recall seeing it air on PBS as well. The biggest thing I remembered was how they used the old theme and morphing footage, but all of the newly refurbished and rebuilt puppets didn't quite match up with them. (Telly's bigger nose, Elmo's fluffier fur, etc.) They don't appear in any of the original air versions the last time I checked.

    • Wow, you remember this in more vivid detail than I. So we have two witnesses that it did happen.

  • Hey Scott,

    If I remember correctly, you'd been collecting some of those highly coveted Character style guides in the past. And I'm aware that they're not the same as the Marvel production guides, but maybe you've got some other source for this: Do you by chance happen to have any decent quality version of the _frontal_ full-body image of Frith's Baby Scooter?

    It's the only one we're missing for the profile image as far as main characters go, and I've been on an odyssey looking for it! I recall seeing his image, as well as the ones for Baby Bunsen and Baby Beaker, when I myself was somewhat of a Muppet Baby, but can't seem to remember anymore where exactly (probably some obscure German book like this novelization)... And should you happen to have Bunsen and Beaker as well, I'll take those, too! Emoji-wink

    Any idea? Anybody else?

    • I agree, those 1992 toddler versions have a very Gilchristy-Cagley look to themselves, especially Gonzo, Fozzie and Animal.

      But does that mean that they wouldn't have a place on their respective Alternate Ages pages because they ONLY appeared on merchandise in this form? If we found a book using the design, would that count?

        Loading editor
    • A book would definitely count, and I'm not sure it would make a difference on Alternate Ages anyway. Just that we wouldn't want to present those images as if they were the character designs used for the animated series.

  • Hi, Scott:

    Just so you know, I went through the entire Sand Alphabet, and all segments in episodes on the Wiki (as far as I know) have links to them, and all 'variations' (as far as I know) are accounted for on the Sand Alphabet page.  I also removed the 'last segment' note from Episode 3969.

    Also, I know this is 'hypothetical,' but at least it has to do with 'actual editing.'  Is it possible that - as more episodes get added to the Wiki - there will be Sand Alphabet segments with images (or variations thereof) which are not yet on the Sand Alphabet page?  If so, I guess I'll just watch out for them and create another 'link' for that 'variation' thus. 

    Again, just wanted to let you know.  Thanks.

    • Yes, and like we discussed before, even though I don't have access to any actual footage or notes per se, I look for chances to contribute (as long as they're not counterproductive and/or don't unduly 'drag other users down.').

  • Hi Scott, so just let me be here to clarify something.

    In the Sesame Street video, What's the Name of that Song? from 2004, it is shown that one of the clips featured in this video is the 1998 version of Everybody's Song featuring guest star Diana Krall, played after the 8th framing scene where Gabi and Miles sing a brief portion about it to Super Grover, Elmo and some kids. However, according to Youtube of a video rip of this video, instead of playing the mentioned song, the OG version of Elmo's Song plays instead. And before you come to mention that I am kidding about this, NO I AM NOT. And from what I can tell from this video, it clearly does not look like there was any bad editing between the transitions. So, for this case, is it safe to clarify its appearence in some releases of this video?

    • Hi Chewie. What release would we be referring to if we were to make a note about it?

        Loading editor
    • Maybe the uploader just badly edited the song in; which is part of the reason why we can't always use YouTube as a source. If we don't have a record of it being commercially released that way, it shouldn't be noted.

        Loading editor
    • Like I said, this probably wasn't badly edited. Judging video quality, this video was done from a VCD, due to resoulution. I could assume this video is the rip of the Singapore and Malaysia release, considering that subtitles are embedded on some portions of it. Then again, I could be biased and I will have to do research on it. So if anyone out there who may notice this talk page, has owned the video in any format and notice this difference, feel free to message here and clarify.

    • I own this video on DVD and can confirm Elmo's Song is not in the video; it is Everybody's Song that is played. I'm assuming that particular rip of the video edited the former song in possibly because the guy might have gotten a copyright strike before when uploading the video and decided to replace it with Elmo's Song instead.

  • Hi, Scott:

    I used the 'WhatLinksHere' feature you mentioned the other day for finding all segments associated with a particular image and it's really helpful - thanks!  Er, to an extent.  If there is a segment (or series of segments) in which there is exactly one and only one image associated with it (or a particular distinctive segment within a larger series), then that's great!  However, with series like the 'Sand Alphabet,' and, to an extent, the 'Bridge Transitions,' this is somewhat trickier, since there are several images which can refer to a single segment (or, if you will, 'variation' of a segment), and these images are not always 'intuitively' labeled, i.e. one can't always easily tell from the name of an image file what it refers to.  In other series, for example, like the Mad Painter, Pinball, and Gymnast ones, there is only one image assigned to each 'component' in that series, but not necessarily so with the Sand Alphabet and a good number of Bridge Transitions.  Hence, one has to go through each episode one at a time to find a 'Sand UC/lc' segment and create a link to the 'Sand Alphabet' page for it if need be, rather than going to the 'quick-reference' index under 'WhatLinksHere.'  I mean - I don't mind (so far), but just to let you know about the more 'cumbersome' nature of certain things.  Then again, that's life!  Thanks and take care.

    • OK, thanks for clarifying.  I'm also a member of Muppet Central, so if I'm interested I'll bring up topics like that one there.  Thanks again.

      Scott, I assume the following morsel is the one to which you are mostly referring:

      We love the Muppets, and you must love them too or else you wouldn't be here. However, this is not the space for fan chatter, favorite lists, fan fiction, or other topics unrelated to the wiki. Please seek out one of the many Muppet fansite forums or social media outlets for these purposes.

      In other words, talking about actual content that is (or was) is one thing, while talking about hypothetical/speculative things or such beginning with 'I wish it were...' is another, and only the former is 'appropriate' for Muppet Fandom.  I understand.

  • Hey Scott, it's Mac

    Just a quick FYI, the Dinosaurs Pops have been released retailers like Hot Topic, GameStop, and BoxLunch. 

    I am going to remove the In-Development. If that's okay?
