    Your Thoughts: The 100 Greatest TV Shows of All Time

    A few surprises for Muppet fans.... The only Henson shows I noticed here are The Muppet Show and Sesame Street. When it comes to non-Henson shows, the biggest omissions in my mind are Newhart and a number of '90s Nickelodeon shows (Rugrats, Rocko's Modern Life, All That.... Salute Your Shorts...

    Questions about this Lending Tree commercial in which the mascot puppet was built by the Jim Henson Company

    I don't think the other people at the bank was really listening, nobody else is really shown listening, and I don't think Lenny really cared if they heard him or smelled BS. Even if he really did literally smell BS, they might not have also smelled it and he could have been checking to see if...

    The "You know what?" thread

    This is the first I heard of the small arcade replica. I’d seen there was one for Ninja Turtles and thought there should be one for the Simpson’s (though the Turtles one is just three of the levels).

    Questions about this Lending Tree commercial in which the mascot puppet was built by the Jim Henson Company

    He’s just saying that he thinks the deal is a scam (or not as good as Lending Tree) and “that smell” is emphasizing his disbelief.

    Questions about this Lending Tree commercial in which the mascot puppet was built by the Jim Henson Company

    I think he means that he does not believe what is being said (some people refer to unbelievable things as BS - sometimes even the actual words) and pretending to smell something to be funny.

    Little things we've noticed

    When Jerry Nelson was interviewed for Toughpigs, he said that he stopped performing Snuffy because he was a major character on the street and Nelson was spending a lot of time in England doing Sesame Street (though there is the fact that Richard Hunt performed the puppetry for one season and...

    Sesame Street episodes with the film clip song Pockets

    Are you just wanting to know all episodes it was in, or are you actually wanting copies of all episodes it was in?

    Muppet Beach Party Thread

    Looks like there's not really a Muppet Beach Party thread here (based on just one page of Google results). I got the Muppet Beach Party album last April, I kept meaning to do a thread about this, and now I'm finally doing it.... When we only have a few days of Summer left. I know the...

    The "You know what?" thread

    I've heard that the reason The Simpson's arcade game was never released on a home console (well, it was released on some computers, does that count as consoles?) was because a different company held the home console rights to Simpson's games. The Simpson's arcade is well-regarded and...

    Why does Disney still allow Sesame Workshop to use the term "Muppet"?

    I have seen productions that list a Muppet Studios copyright without saying that Muppet is a trademark (I feel these productions don’t even use the term in the credits). Almost makes it look as if Muppet Studios shares copyright with Sesame Workshop on the production (I know better, but would...

    Unearthing previously "lost" Sesame Street episodes

    Sometimes a page will have an image that's not used on any episode pages (though that's normally for songs or things that have their own page as opposed to a page listing segments). The wiki finally has images of a family I heard of called the Polka Dot Family. I read about them on the season...

    Little things we've noticed

    For the Sesame Street version of "Mahna Mahna", Bip Bipodotta (if we want to consider him that character for the song) looked and sounded less like Mahna Mahna than he would in all future appearances. The Sesame version came first, just a little before the more famous rendition of the routine...

    Nick at Nite Thread

    For years I have seen a commercial for a special called The Nick at Nite Do it Yourself Sitcom Search (actually, the promo was for a rebroadcast, as it had quotes from critics), hadn't actually found the special online, I wondered if maybe it had an article on Lost Media Wiki (as far as I can...

    HBO Max removes nearly 200 Sesame Street episodes, modern specials, and the Not-Too-Late Show with Elmo

    Huh. I thought Speedy was on there. I guess I’m conflating that with the fact that many have recently been restored and airing on ME-TV.

    HBO Max removes nearly 200 Sesame Street episodes, modern specials, and the Not-Too-Late Show with Elmo

    Another good punchline would be "the same episodes can/will be viewed there, right?"

    Sesame Workshop/Shout! Factory Deal

    Shout! just announced on its Facebook page (haven’t seen a Wiki page yet) a November release called My Favorite Holidays. Considering there’s been so many episodes (not specials) in the last few years involving specific holidays, this is a good idea. and I hope it has both the News segments...

    HBO Max removes nearly 200 Sesame Street episodes, modern specials, and the Not-Too-Late Show with Elmo

    Somebody on the Toughpigs forum said, not surprisingly, that they are phasing out HBO Max. If HBO Max discontinues, I wonder if Sesame Street will go to the Discovery app or what.

    Little things we've noticed

    Recently, it was discovered that the little monster in the first season “here and there” sketch was named Billy. Until recently, he had been listed on the wiki as Baby Monster. the name Billy was also used for the little monster in the remake with Grover and Herry. I guess maybe that’s why he...
