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.

  • Hey Scott, I hope you're doing well.

    FANDOM is currently in negotiations with Disney+ to produce celebrity interviews hosted by the Muppets. We're wondering if this would be something that your community would be interested in promoting here on the wiki? Would this be something that we would be able to continue promoting here on the wiki as more episodes are released?

    Currently, we have the following celebs on the slate - RuPaul, Taye Diggs, Danny Trejo, Roy Choi, Aubrey Plaza, and Seth Rogen.

    We're hoping to close on the deal soon, so I hope to hear back from you!

    • Hey, Corey. Sounds like fun. What kind of promoting would you be looking for us to do?

      Also, how is the DPLForum thing going we talked about at thread:292246?

        Loading editor
    • Hey, thanks for your super quick response.

      For now, we're thinking that the interviews could be treated as any other Muppet episode would be, with a page created for it, a page created for the celebrity being interviewed, as well as having the latest "episode" highlighted in the sidebar on the main page. There may be changes to that ask though, so that's not 100% certain just yet. I'll ask around to see what the others are thinking and will get back to you as soon as I find something out.

      In regards to the bot, I've looked into creating one for you and, while it's definitely doable, it's something that I don't currently have the time to work on alone. If you have any experience with Node then we could start working on one together though. Sorry for the lack of response on that, not sure how that one fell off my radar.

    • With the exception of Roy Choi, you'll find that we already have pages for the guests you've listed. If you can get us a list of the episode titles and premiere dates, we can get started on them right away.

      I'm not sure what you mean by a bot for DPLForums. Isn't it just what they're using at w:c:memoryalpha:Memory_Alpha:Forums?

    • Hey Scott, sorry for my late reply. We've drawn up a list of the changes we'd like to work on during the promotional campaign. You can find them below.

      Muppet Wiki Community Design + Content Updates

      • Muppet Wiki homepage spiff/redesign themed to Muppets Now Disney+ campaign
      • Muppets Now featured on Muppet Wiki homepage with graphic and descriptive copy, linking to wiki article page for the series
      • Contextual tune-in messaging for the series on homepage and Muppets Now wiki article page (Ex. “Muppet Now is now streaming on Disney+”)
      • Muppets Now series page(s) updated for accuracy, any needed design improvements, and promotional messaging
      • Create new Muppets Now series episode pages in collaboration with community
      • Perform relevant wiki content updates for characters, cast, and creative talent with any new information specific to Muppets Now

      Muppets Now Assets + Promotional Video Seeding

      • Seed all provided Muppets Now promotional assets and series info on Muppet Wiki, including TBD video promo content
      • Feature TBD video promo content on Muppet Wiki homepage (rotating as updated), Muppets Now series article page (video gallery), and individually appropriate Muppets Now episode article pages

      Now the above would be guaranteed for the duration of the promotional campaign, however, once the campaign is over you and your community would be free to make any changes you deem necessary. How does this sound to you?


      In regards to the bot, I meant one that watches for edits on forum pages, grabs a list of past editors to that forum post, then leaves a talk page/message wall post for those editors mentioning the new edit. As far as I'm aware, Memory Alpha has no such bot like this.

  • Hi Scott!

    How do I add this Sneegle video from The Jim Henson Company's YouTube Channel be part of to Special:Videos? I tried the "Add New Video" option and entered the URL, but am getting "Negative response from URL - http-bad-status." Any steps I'm missing here?

    If this is only for admins, here's the "No Tailgating" video. [1]

    • 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.

      If you're interested in contributing here, please read the welcome message left on your wall and familiarize yourself with our rules and guidelines. Thank you.

  • 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.

        Loading editor
    • 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.
