Hi, I'm Karlena. The Karlena (yeah, this is how I spell my name) from the Grover picture where he's holding the love sign. My mom used to have a tape with all the stuff me and my sister did on Sesame Street, but it got destroyed. I was wondering if you had another screen capture where you can see my face? I'd be really cool to have. Thanks anyway for contributing you brought back some good memories from being a Sesame Street kid for all those years. Thanks. -- user:Grovergirl13 19:36, September 10, 2007

shooting blanks

Hey dude. Thanks for protecting the main page. I think that's a good idea, especially with all the recent activity. By the way, keep an eye on your mailbox in the coming week. Peace. β€”Scott (talk) 19:27, 30 August 2007 (UTC)


Hey, Guillermo! I haven't seen you around for a while. How are you doing? Are you going to be doing anything special for the 4th? I'm just going to hang around the house and write up some Sesame Street records that I haven't gotten to yet.

Talk to you later! -- Ken (talk) 05:41, 4 July 2007 (UTC)

Episode 1141

Hi G -- I was just looking in my Museum of Television and Radio listings, and I noticed that they list this episode as #1145. You created the page -- is there a reason why we have it as 1141? -- Danny (talk) 13:22, 23 June 2007 (UTC)

First, 1141 is the number that appears on the screen. Second, every episode number that ends with 5 or 0 has an end credit sequence, and this one doesn't. --MuppetVJ 17:09, 23 June 2007 (UTC)
Oh, okay -- I didn't know that you had the episode. -- Danny (talk) 17:12, 23 June 2007 (UTC)
I don't HAVE it - I went to the museum with a notebook and wrote down everything that was in it. I did the same for Episode 0560.--MuppetVJ 17:30, 23 June 2007 (UTC)
I wonder why they have it listed as 1145? That's weird, maybe it's a mistake. -- Danny (talk) 01:23, 24 June 2007 (UTC)

Count von Count's castle

Hey. Guillermo! Where does the info about Belvedere Castle come from? β€”Scott (talk) 21:15, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

Oh, nevermind. I just clicked the Wikipedia link Tongue.gif β€”Scott (talk) 21:17, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

Sesame stuff

Hey, Guillermo! I've got a comment and a question:

First, This Way to Sesame Street is even more amazing than the test show! As a huge Ernie and Bert fan, I would love to someday see all of the material they did in this show! Thanks for sharing this one as well!

My question is, can you go take a look at Sesame Street Story Time? I just got the record, and I'm working on typing up summaries for the stories. Do you happen to know when any of them aired, and do you have any pictures from them? I figured you'd be the one to ask about it. Thanks! -- Ken (talk) 05:56, 8 June 2007 (UTC)


Holy cow. The article on Sesame Street Test Show 01 is amazing. That is some deep research we've got on the wiki now.

I'm really glad that we got those videos out of the hands of the fans who want to keep everything to themselves, and into the hands of the fans who want to share it all with the world. That's beautiful! -- Danny (talk) 01:45, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Wait a minute... By saying "I'm really glad that we got those videos out of the hands of the fans who want to keep everything to themselves", does this mean that there will be articles on other test shows soon? --Minor muppetz 01:50, 6 June 2007 (UTC)
The first one is all I've been able to find, but I also just obtained This Way to Sesame Street (more on that later). --MuppetVJ 01:55, 6 June 2007 (UTC)
Dude. Fucking awesome. You're my hero. β€”Scott (talk) 02:14, 6 June 2007 (UTC)
Thanks. If I didn't do this, I have no idea who would. --MuppetVJ 02:47, 6 June 2007 (UTC)
That's why you're MuppetVJ! -- Ken (talk) 02:50, 6 June 2007 (UTC)
(bows down) You're awesome! -- MuppetDude 19:34, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

Test Show 01

I saw that you added the page for Sesame Street Test Show 01. I recently heard that this was on eBay. I guess that's how you got it (or maybe it was some other way). Anyway, I was wondering how you know it was the first test pilot. Does your copy have it labeled as "Test Show #1" (or something like that)? Or are you just guessing with the number? The page doesn't have a still that shows the number. --Minor muppetz 01:43, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

The show has no number, but the disc label itself says "Sesame Street / Test Show #1 / July 1969." That's what I'm going with. --MuppetVJ 01:55, 6 June 2007 (UTC)
That's what I meant when I asked if your copy was labled "Test Show #1". --Minor muppetz 01:59, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

The Word Family Song

Hey, Guillermo, I've missed you around here! I was looking for you because I've got a record question, but it might be related to an old episode question, so I thought of you. On Somebody Come and Play, there's a version of The Word Family Song, using "an" words, and it's credited to 2 characters named "Dan" and "Friend". Well, when I played it, "Dan" sounds like Frank Oz, and the Friend, who's really named Joe, sounds like Jerry Nelson. The reason I'm asking you all this is that we're 48 characters away from hitting 2,000 Muppets! And these 2 characters on this song are not on the Muppet list. They're also redlinked on the album's page. So what I'm asking is, do you happen to know if this sketch was broadcast, or was it a record-only version? I think that if Dan and Joe were actually built, we can add them to the list! Thanks for your help! -- Ken (talk) 20:31, 28 May 2007 (UTC)

Sesame Animation

Hey G, what it is? (Sorry, I've been listening to Ferlinghetti Donizetti rap). I know you like the animation stuff, so I thought I'd point out that I added a bunch of cartoons to Letters (CD-ROM). You probably already have them all, but if you need to see any, I can upload to YouTube. β€”Scott (talk) 16:53, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

It looks like TinyDancer500 already has many of them uploaded:look. -- MuppetDude 16:58, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

Fraggle DVDs

Hey G, I think you did a great job with the Fraggle videography, but I think there's enough to say on the DVD titles for them to constitute their own pages. I opened up discussions at Talk:Fraggle Rock Videography a few days ago. Can you weigh in? β€”Scott (talk) 18:56, 3 May 2007 (UTC)

Susan records

Hey, G! Do we know anyone who has either Susan from Sesame Street with the Bubble Gum Singers or Susan Sings Songs from Sesame Street? I have a question about one of the songs. β€”Scott (talk) 03:38, 22 April 2007 (UTC)

Ah, here's my question if you can help out: Talk:Square Song. Thanks! β€”Scott (talk) 14:57, 22 April 2007 (UTC)

Episode 2291

Hey MuppetVJ, I'm Kyle and i have a question for you. Ken sent me this way because he says your an expert on Sesame Street episodes. Now it's about a trade i did a while back. Now i have this episiode of Sesame Street that starts off with Big Bird singing "Good Morning Mr. Sun" but it has a whole todally different story line other then the one that is up on the guide? Now i know that the version that's up in the guide is a PBS version but the guy who i traded with also said his copy was a PBS verison. The # here is called Episode 2291. Could you help me out? -- Kyle (talk) 02:42, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

I don't understand your question. My copy of #2291 matches what's on the guide.--MuppetVJ 03:20, 18 April 2007 (UTC)
If it helps, the "Good Morning Mister Sun" song is an insert, i.e. it appears in more than one episode. The same clip is used at the beginning of Episode 2475. -- MuppetDude 13:33, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

David (toy)

Hey G, do you remember which episode it was that Elmo names his doll after David which you included in this collection? β€”Scott (talk) 16:47, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

I do; it's show #2256. -- MuppetDude 16:52, 17 April 2007 (UTC)
Thank you, sir! β€”Scott (talk) 17:16, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

re: welcome

Hi MuppetVJ. Thanks for your warm welcome on my talk page! I don't know if I have a lot to contribute here -- I'm no expert at all -- but I ran across that Number Song Series quotation kind of by accident and decided to create an account and drop it into the relevant article. I also wondered if you might have any advice on where to find complete synopses of the Sesame Street street-action plots for the first few seasons. (For a school history project, I'm trying to find episodes where the street scenes deal with a particular theme I'm interested in.) If not, no problem, and again I appreciate the welcome.

Welcome templates

Hey, G. I accidentally edited your personalized welcome template when attempting to edit User talk:Sam Sloan by clicking on the section edit link (instead of the edit the page link on the top). It looks like it's a bug in the MediaWiki software, but I thought I'd point out that it's probably a good idea for welcome and username templates to be preceded with subst:. For example, {{subst:welcome}}. What that does is just substitute the code that calls for the template with the code that's actually in the template. It's actually a good practice anyway because it decreases server load, but will also fix the immediate bug until I can get tech to look at it. β€”Scott (talk) 17:37, 4 April 2007 (UTC)

Episode 0004

Hey, G: You changed the sponsors on Episode 0004 a while ago. The synopsis that I have from the archives says the sponsors are E, S, W and 3, and the story of the episode involves the cast members holding sales at Hooper's Store featuring items that begin with E, S and W. Is there a source for the different sponsors? -- Danny (talk) 12:18, 3 April 2007 (UTC)

Bert is Sick

Hey, Guillermo, can you tell me what's different between the TV and record versions of Bert is Sick? I had the record growing up, and I remember seeing it a lot, and I'm pretty positive it was a soundtrack. Thanks. -- Ken (talk) 07:22, 24 March 2007 (UTC)

I grew up with the record too, and I can assure you they're both completely different recordings.--MuppetVJ 16:12, 24 March 2007 (UTC)
Here's proof: the first 15 seconds of both the monitor version and the album track. --MuppetVJ 16:27, 24 March 2007 (UTC)
I believe you, it's just a little bit of a shock to find out that I don't remember what I thought I remembered, you know what I mean? I figured you had access to video copies, since you do a lot of taping of SS stuff. Anyway, now that I think about it, I was playing the records the other night, and I was wondering why they seemed to be in stereo. TV was still in mono back then, and I wondered why they would have bothered. That makes sense then, if there are 2 versions. By the way, I'm assuming you sent me a sound file, but my computer doesn't know what it is. Do I need something special to play it? Thanks. -- Ken (talk) 00:51, 25 March 2007 (UTC)
We usually play OGG audio files with Audacity.--MuppetVJ 01:11, 25 March 2007 (UTC)
