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

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 can you tell if the Sleepy Sheepy insert is one I remember as Maria and Olivia as farm girls who count sheep to fall asleep?

    Thanks for all you’ve done for the wiki

    I saw on this page Come Join Us the screenshot from "Come Join Us" was updated to this one sometime ago, 

    Did this screenshot come from another source? 'cause the previous screenshot came from the Spanish broadcast. I mean, this didn't come from an English broadcast or some DVD screenshot, did it? We're all looking for "Come Join Us" in English. Any help is appreciated.

  • Hi, we are working on a Palisades archive with the founder of the company.  I would love to talk to you about this and do it as a collaboration.  Can we talk sometimes?

    • Hi, Christian. Sure, what's up?

    • Love to check in with you re a series of articles we plan to write with Palisades founder Mike Horn.  Can you email me on christian@hobbydb.com, ideally with a phone number so we can discuss?  You could use this to ask any questions you might have to Mike about those days.

  • Hi, Scott:

    I'm hoping that it would be reasonable to assume that 'H' is also a sponsor for Episode 0709. Thanks in advance.

  • Hi, Scott:

    Just wondering if 'C' is one of the sponsors for Episode 0704 as well. Also, the segment on Max Ferbilfeemer in that episode has a self-referencing link as well. Otherwise, glad to see more episodes added! Thanks in advance.

    • Thanks, Shane. As always, I just want to check with an admin about certain things rather than assume.

  • Hi, Scott. Jon here again. I 'set up' some galleries for those letter pages you mentioned, and I assume that other users (including myself) can add to them as needed. However, I would like to mention about another topic (involving two items, and since the second involves material from your anonymous source, please be 'kind' in your response - thanks).

    1. Some of the segments from Sesame Street, like the flower film with Antonio Vivaldi music (First: Episode 0008) and the turtle film with Charles Gounod music (First: Episode 0296), obviously have both the title and the composer of the background music mentioned in the segment description. However, there are a number of other clips with background music from the KPM library (which is used for NFL Films, among other endeavors). These include, but are not limited to:

    1. Walk Panels (First: Episode 0369) - 'USA Groove' by Alan Hawkshaw
    2. Chewing Gum Factory (First: Episode 0498) - 'Jolly Thomas' by Alan Hawkshaw and Alan Parker
    3. Gymnast showing 'Around' (First: Episode 0517) - 'Hummingbird' by Johnny Pearson
    4. It's a Circle (First: Episode 0550) - 'Happy Guitar' by Alan Parker
    5. Gymnast showing 'Between' (EKA: Episode 0573) - 'Pretty Girl' by Johnny Pearson
    6. Body Parts Cartoon (First: Episode 0809) - 'The Beat Moves On' by Keith Mansfield

    Is it OK of the name of the background piece is mentioned in the segment description for these and other clips which have background music where the name of the piece can be identified by, say, listening to a YouTube video? Please let me know. Thanks.

    2. Now for the part which involves footage from your anonymous source which you and the admins are using to assemble table episode guides - while I totally understand the fact that you cannot share them with others in any way, shape, or form, can I ask you if a particular segment has a particular piece as its background music, and then you can merely respond 'yes' or 'no' without actually sharing the clip per se? For example, some of the clips in this category are:

    1. 'Beginning/End'/Kids wait in line (First: Episode 0441) and 'Someone Stole My Bathtub' (First: Episode 0491) - 'Corn on the Keys' by Johnny Pearson
    2. 'Beginning/End'/Barber gives haircut (First: Episode 0441) - 'Hero vs. the Villain' by Johnny Pearson
    3. Gymnast showing 'Slow' (EKA: Episode 0546) - 'Hummingbird' by Johnny Pearson (same as 'Around' clip)
    4. The picture just uploaded (First: Episode 0567) of David and Maria trying to find each other in the park - 'That's Nice' by Alan Moorhouse

    Again, can you tell me if the 'guesses' I am making on the above four clips based on my memory of them is correct, by listening to both that clip and the YouTube video for that piece, of does this still 'violate' the terms of the agreement between you and the anonymous source? Either way, please let me know.

    Thanks greatly in advance on both of the above.

    • This is exactly why I started this page. You’re totally welcome to add to that.

    • Thanks for responding, but how about the second item? Can I ask an admin to verify if a segment from your anonymous source has a particular musical piece and you cen get back to me with a confirmation without letting me see or hear the clip, or does that still 'violate' the agreement you have with your providing source? Just wondering. Thanks.

  • Hi, Scott:

    Thanks for your response on the 'Building the best...' forum. I think I'll start with the letter pages (i.e. for the letters you mentioned) and 'convert' the HTML (or whatever markup language is used) to 'gallery format.' I did that with 'D' already. Once that's done, things will be 'dynamic' and users can add, delete, and modify and pictures/links as they see fit.

    Also, regarding your YouTube video on completing episode guides, I saw a little bit of it, and see how you 'capture' pieces of video and show them as 'still pictures' in the episodes which feature them. I see that you used the segment of a turtle walking to 'Alfred Hitchcock music' as an example. This leads me to assume that you're getting actual entire video clips from your anonymous source (let me know if this is true). However, inasmuch as I'm tempted to ask you to share them with me, I have to respect the fact that you're 'sworn' to keep things 'secret' in that regard. Just a thought, however - is there any way you could make an 'audio-only' version of certain clips and upload them to YouTube upon request (which only feature background music and vocals)? I did that about 10 years ago on YouTube with the 'Fred, get me a 20' clip featuring Joe Raposo (from 1971 or so). It was audio only, and e-mailed to me from another YouTube user. Interestingly enough, one day later, someone found the actual video and uploaded it to YouTube. Again, just a thought, but if this idea is also technically 'in violation' of the agreement you have with your provider source, then that's fine. Last but not least, as you may know, I have a 'wish list' on my Wiki page, and I add a picture of a 'wanted' clip to it when I see the picture appear in a tabled guide. Thanks again.

  • You might remember us going back and forth on edits to Episode 2600. Does the video that you have have any stuff missing from the table?

  • Re Episode 1996, the images in the guide aren't the best for actor confirming, but the main doctor here looks like Ron Foster, who was in The Muppets Take Manhattan. I'd need a better angle to confirm.
