character galleries

Hey Michael, thanks for starting sandbox pages for Brian Muehl, Camille Bonora, and Kathryn Mullen. Let's hold off on creating any more for a while though, okay? With these big kinds of projects, they tend to get started and then forgotten while everyone's attention is diverted elsewhere. Best to just focus on what we've got now and get it into good shape before moving on to any more. —Scott latest?cb=20200820192427 (talk) 13:16, 19 August 2021 (UTC)

Yeah, I wasn't going to do a lot of these right now. I wasn't sure what the plan was, seemed like the ones who got character galleries are performers who were around for a fair bit of time but didn't really have a whole lot of their own characters. And I have seen the forum posts today. --Minor muppetz (talk) 03:01, 20 August 2021 (UTC)


What did I do wrong that you reverted my edits on Christy? All I did was capitalize the word "Episode," which is what the Style Guide says the proper format is. -- Lee 11:00, 5 September 2021 (UTC)

I do not remember making that change or even looking at the page recently. Sometimes I'll look at pages and somehow accidentally hit edit, but I don't think I'd cause editing. The only other explanation I can think of would be if I "pocket edited" on my phone (sometimes I see I unintentionally hit several buttons on my phone when it's in my pocket), I didn't think I was logged in on my phone but I now see that I was. Otherwise I have no idea what happened on my part. --Minor muppetz (talk) 02:42, 6 September 2021 (UTC)

unaired domestic Sesame

Hey, man. I like what you've got going with Sandbox:Inserts produced for Sesame Street that haven't aired on the domestic version. Before it's ready to move out the Sandbox, I think we should indicate where these segments have shown up. Maybe in the First Appearance column which isn't being used for First Appearances right now. —Scott latest?cb=20200820192427 (talk) 14:52, 5 October 2021 (UTC)

I really just copied and pasted those from a handful of character guides (knowing which ones didn't air here because they lacked first appearances or EKAs). Of course some of those do list home video or online releases. I guess we'll have to use "what links here" to see where they have aired. --Minor muppetz (talk) 01:10, 8 October 2021 (UTC)
Sounds good. It will probably make a good article once it's got that stuff. —Scott latest?cb=20200820192427 (talk) 01:17, 8 October 2021 (UTC)
I just used "what links here" for a few of the images and I see now that some of them don't really list what international shows they were on. --Minor muppetz (talk) 01:20, 8 October 2021 (UTC)
Where did the information come from? —Scott latest?cb=20200820192427 (talk) 01:24, 8 October 2021 (UTC)
The images and descriptions were on character sketch galleries. I thought everything without an episode number listed aired internationally (most sketch guides don't seem to list unaired segments). --Minor muppetz (talk) 01:56, 8 October 2021 (UTC)
Hm. I suppose, then, the answer lies in the histories for each of those sketch pages. —Scott latest?cb=20200820192427 (talk) 02:01, 8 October 2021 (UTC)
One thing I left out because I wasn't sure if they should be included in that page are the sketches from Super Healthy Monsters. I've heard that those were shot in English with their main performers (and some of those have been released or broadcast in the states, but many have aired on other international shows) but I'm pretty sure those were shot especially for that series. --Minor muppetz (talk) 02:06, 8 October 2021 (UTC)
Maybe we could put what international shows the various segments have appeared on in the tab that would go to “first appearance”. —Minor muppetz (talk) 19:49, 8 October 2021 (UTC)
Sure, that's what I was thinking. —Scott latest?cb=20200820192427 (talk) 21:54, 8 October 2021 (UTC)
When I looked at “what links here” for a few of the images, I saw that there were no international shows linked but ‘’Play with Me Sesame’’ stuff was. Not sure if those ended up just airing on that show an f it any other version of the show (well that show was made with international viewings in mind). I’m pretty sure they weren’t made exclusively for that show (I doubt they would have produced any segments especially for ‘’Play with Me Sesame’’ that don’t utilize a computer animate background).

Another thing about some segments not linking to any international pages could be that somebody saw them on an international show (or an international dub went online and it’s unknown where it came from), or the wiki just doesn’t know the episode numbers. Which gets me wondering if we should have a sandbox page for international co-productions that we don’t have any episode pages for. I don’t really know off-hand if we do or what shows we don’t have episode info on.—Minor muppetz (talk) 23:32, 8 October 2021 (UTC)

SS performer info

I don't mind at all if you or others add to SS performer info; it's to keep track on any known info out there from the early years, when there's not enough video evidence yet. It'll come in handy for the future, I hope. -- Tony (talk) 17:49, 1 May 2022 (UTC)

That's good. I looked in history and saw that Scott was the only other person who had contributed. I think most of those incidental characters in street scenes in the first season are live actors, seems it was very limited for first season street scenes to have Muppets other than Big Bird or Oscar. I can't remember where on the wiki, I think a forum post, but Scott said that there's times in the first season where the actors playing Buddy and Jim play incidental roles, with the scripts listing them by their character roles (and some scripts saying "Buddy or Jim", as if they didn't care which one was cast), so some of those first season characters could be one of those actors (and I have seen one fully=pictured guide that shows Brandon Maggard did play a postman, can't remember which episode). --Minor muppetz (talk) 18:40, 1 May 2022 (UTC)
