Street Season 48
Sesame Street's 48th season
officially began Monday August 6 on PBS. After you see the new episodes,
post here and let us know your thoughts.
Discussion in 'Classic Muppets' started by The Count, Feb 2, 2005.
I think both should be designated under ES.
OK, just a bit confused now. Exactly where did Scudge and Thudge make their appearances? Did Thudge appear in The Great Santa Claus Switch or did he appear on Ed Sullivan first? Did Scudge appear on SS or Ed Sullivan first? Just tryin' to make sense of these two entries and if it'd be better to switch their current designations.
Hope to hear from you guys soon, have a good night.
Both Scudge and Thudge first appear in "Ed Sullivan". Scudge then appears in the first season of "Sesame Street" and Thudge then appears in "The Great Santa Claus Switch".
Boris shouldn't be listed with TMS because he's not a Muppet. He was portrayed by Peter Sellers.
Actually... Talked to BlueAM about that entry. There is one character known as Boris portrayed by Peter Sellers from his TMS episode, which isn't listed. But there's another gypsy-like character named Boris from TMS that BlueAM described for me. Not sure if I have that descript saved on my home computer, but it's been taken care of and Boris will stay listed.
Finished adding all the stuff from Muppets Magic & Ed Sullivan, we're one away from 3100 entries. Course, I'm gonna separate the members of the Fry Girls, so that'll take the list up to 3103. And then it's a matter of adding all the stuff from the tapes I got from MuppetDude once I watch them. Gonna focus on a few other projects for the time being, but I look forward to any other contributions you guys have to make to the list.
King Rupert from "Hey Cinderella" should be changed to King Goshposh.
Who is the other Boris by the way?
Well... Have to check if I have the descript of Boris that BlueAM sent me. If not, guess I could ask again for further clarification. As to King Rupert from Hey Cinderella! If he were changed to "King Goshposh", then his designation would have to be changed to Tales of the Tinkerdee. The other reason why I'm not gonna do that is cause the same puppet was used as King Rupert II in TFP. So that leads one to wonder, who was King Rupert I? Well, we could infer that the King Goshposh puppet was used as the king in Hey Cinderella! and though they didn't say it he could be King Rupert I. Course, since a dynastic line of royalty isn't started until the second monarch who takes the same name as the previously named monarch of the same name, it also makes sense that he be listed as "King Rupert".
Hope this helps settle things and have a good night.
I'm not best qualified to suggest this, but while clicking through some Muppet sites I noticed you are missing quite a few Fraggle Rock characters; BlueFrackle I'm sure would be beter suited to any questions you have on them...
King Goshposh resembled King Rupert without white fringe arount the head.
So... King Goshposh from Tales of the Tinkerdee and King Rupert from Hey Cinderella! are two different puppets? Well, in that case, if that were to be confirmed by some other trusted source I'd be willing to add him to the list.
As for missing FR characters, I used up all that www.punchandjewelry.com had to offer. However, if there are any that aren't on the list speak up and I'll take it into consideration. Would go to BlueFrackle's site, but for some reason whenever I go there I don't get anything. Oh, there are some advertisement links, but nothing for me to actually explore with my screenreader program. Contact me with the info regarding the names and descripts of these missing FR characters or post them fright here.
Hope this helps and have a good day.
Well, I did put a link in my last post which I thought would help...
As I say I don't know much about Fraggle Rock but I did know that Fulton MacKay appeared as the Captain in the UK Version as he is not mentioned in your listings. According to the IMDb this role was taken over by John Gordon Sinclair and possibly one other.
Yip Yip Martians
Hey there, Count - My I commend you on such a fine collection. I was hoping to possible attain a Yip Yip episode for my friends birthday. I don't have anything to trade, but am willing to listen to any suggestions you may have. Looking through your list it seems that episode 1725 The Martians (SS) may be just perfect.
Thanks in advance!
OK, let me take care of a few points.
1 Harvey Towers, was wondering when someone would bring that up. Thought you were talking about the international versions of Doc and Sprocket, and turns out I was right. Haven't had anyone bring them into the fold and since the kick I was on was getting international SS characters, I plum forgot about those from FR. Will add them once I get the chance.
2 BroadwayJoe, glad you like the thread, however this just a listing of all Henson characters from the different productions in an attempt to make a complete listing one day. You can probably get better responses by starting a thread over in the Sesame Merchandise or Buy, Sell and Trade sections of this forum.
3 As for that episode in particular, sorry to disappoint you but I don't have it in my video collection. There are only 4 SS episodes I have, along with 2 SS specials and those I got from my dealer up in Canada. Mayhaps you should contact Boober_Gorg or Justin Faulknor and talk to them directly to see if they have the episodes you're looking for. It's not that I don't want to trade, it's just that I don't have knowledge of the technology to use to make copies of what I do have at the moment.
Again, hope this helps you and welcome to MC!
Aside from the wardrobe and crown, the King from Cinderella looks like a better built version of King Goshposh; both have a dark pink round nose, both smoke a cigar, both have an orange tone to their skin, and both have black eyebrows instead of eyes. Neither one has hair nor ears. King Rupert II, though, does.
However, the King from Cinderella is never referred to by a name; it's always "your majesty", "dad", etc.
P.S.: Many of the entries you have for "TV Movie" aren't TV movies; they're specials. As far as I know, there have only been two TV movies so far: VMMCM and KSY. (Though technically KSY is a direct-to-video release, but in its debut it has also aired on television. In fact there are a few scenes where the scene fades to black and comes up on the next scene, possibly meaning that a commercial break was there.)
So... King Goshposh should indeed be listed? And everything that's "TV Movie" except for VMMCM and KSY changed to "TV Special"?
LMK and I'll work on it.
I'd guess so. I'll check the list.
OK then. Just a quick question. Were the members of the Fry Girls... an apple, broccoli, loaf of bread, pear and pineapple?
If so, that'd bring us up to 3109.
OK, all the TV Movie entries, except for the ones from VMMCM or KSY have been switched to TV Special.
King Rupert from Hey Cinderella! has been switched to "The King, Prince Arthur Charming's Dad".
The additional Fry Girls have been added.
Barbara the Chicken and the Dancing Tubas from SS 4032, the Guy in Room #7 from 123 Count With Me, and the Waitress from the same video release have been added.
And for your curiousity... that pirate wolf from SS Germany Muppet_dk originally reported does have a name. As best we agreed upon, in English that name is Pirate Captain Wolfdietrich Säbelmeier.
Gonna take care of a few other errands here at home, might have time to go through the tapes of JHH I got.
Hope this helps, and have a good weekend everyone.
