I just came across this today, and figured it was unusual and noteworthy enough to deserve its own page. However, I'm not sure how to categorize it, outside of game shows. I really don't want to just lump it in the larger Sesamstrasse category (I still don't like mixing subcats and articles whenever possible). Do we go ahead and create Category:International Sesame Street Sketches? Right now, this is the first completely new, recurring segment for an international Sesame Street show we've come across (though I think there's at least a few unique recurring animated segments on a few of the series, and there either are or soon might be others which would be worth noting). -- Andrew Leal (talk) 22:12, 22 August 2007 (UTC)
- What a fabulous little find, I love it. The category is tricky -- I'd like to keep it in the Sesamstrasse category, if possible. How about Sesamstrasse Sketches?
- On another subject, what do you think about changing the title to "Der Ernie & Bert Show"? I know it says "Ernie & Bert Show" on the website, but the photo caption says "Bert ist Moderator der "Ernie & Bert Show"". I think it's probably announced on-screen as "Der Ernie & Bert Show". -- Danny (talk) 13:56, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
- I will hopefully soon start to tape the Sesamstrasse shows again, so i can provide more info on these. About a new category I think it would be a good idea in the long run. A Sesamstrasse skecthes category would be a good idea to begin with, and once other recurring sketches from other countries can be added then a general category can be made Henrik 14:18, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
- Bit of a grammar correction: it would be Die Ernie & Bert Show instead of Der Ernie & Bert Show. In the sentence you just posted, Der means "of the", as in "Bert is the host of the Ernie & Bert Show". Germany has 16 variations of the word the. Has something to do with the word gender: in this case, Show is feminine and goes with Die, as in Die Muppet Show. -- Jogchem 14:30, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
