- My best guess is that he and Gootnick both built it? I dunno. The old Henson.com Featured Creature page cites Frith on design and lists "The Muppet Workshop" as the construction team. So that info implies that more than one person worked on Angus. And I trust User:Vard's info who originally add Gootnick to the article. -- Scott Scarecroe 02:27, 16 February 2006 (UTC)
- Yeah, I'd seen McNally's site before (I'd filled in his page), and wondered about that just a bit. I received my information from the Featured Creature profile at Henson.com, now offline but thankfully archived. The accompanying image is recognizably a Frith sketch, and I think the Archive folks (Karen Falk added most of the info) knew what they were doing. *However*, I don't think it's necessarily a case of being right or wrong. I'm pretty sure the Featured Creature page is accurate, but there's no reason to assume that they're complete. I sort of wish McNally had included a sketch and not the finished puppet image, but we don't necessarily have to assume he's lying. Clearly Angus went through some stages between that Frith sketch and the final puppet, so McNally probably did have a hand in the design stage. I've seen similar things in animators' resumes, where they don't lie, but also don't necessarily point out that other people worked on the character or scene as well (the better ones do, but McNally's page isn't an indepth portfolio anyway, just a sampler showcase). So for now, I'm going to rework it to list both as designers, but at some point, it might not hurt for someone to e-mail McNally for clarification. --Andrew, Aleal 02:30, 16 February 2006 (UTC)
- Heh, Scott and I posted at the same time. However, McNally posits himself as a designer, and indeed that's where his background is, and not a builder (I wish I had that tape with me to check the credits, and even then many folks went unbilled). Maybe Vard will weigh in later, but for now, I'll list both. --Andrew, Aleal 02:32, 16 February 2006 (UTC)
