Hi, Gav. Will we ever see Sesame Street episode tapes being traded from peoples homes on Muppet wiki? I'm not asking for anything, I just know that there's a pandemic right now, assuming why there isn't any tape trading right now between the people on the wiki.
CN still has digital copies of these episodes, so there's no such thing as Uncle Grandpa being lost. Whoever wrote that article doesn't know HOW a project like this gets lost and is indeed a retard. What matters if it's lost is if CN ever loses the video files of it (apparently they NEVER lose anything, they always safely maintain every single show), but no, the way the article is told retardedly sounds like it's lost because some episodes don't randomly appear online as do others, and that DOES NOT COUNT AS LOST! I'm going to tag THIS IS NOT LOST! Or shall I delete the article instead?
'Cause I got my knowledge from you about that just because these shows that aren't on DVD or on the Internet or not on TV anymore doesn't mean they're lost. They're just stored privately on digital servers or whatever digital machines or computers they are er,... er I dunno what digital thingy they store the media on, but I know that it's all digital they're now storing media in.
But the reason I'm telling you this is because someone's just not knowing that Uncle Grandpa is actually not lost, it's just that some episodes are not publicly available, so seriously, it does not count as being lost.
I ask that you go on the Muppet Wiki article of Sam and Friends and move the Final Episode (December 15, 1961) to the bottom as a documented episode (and keep in the date as well as the statement that the footage still exists).
Okay, I think I get your point about the episodes not being lost. However, the remaining Sam and Friends episodes, documents and scripts however aren't lost, they were being kept vaulted (stored) all this time in the Long Island Musuem archives, and the Henson Archives retrieve these episodes, documents,and scripts every once in a while. But as for me, despite 58 of the episodes we've jotted down on list so far, it's definitely unknown what may have happened to the remaining 28 episodes that are currently unidentified (even though they're being kept vaulted).
It is not for sure that all those unidentified episodes are stored, after all, Jim only taped stuff he liked or something with an aspect he wanted to review. Let me note that documents and scripts are placed NOT in museums, but rather all of them in the Henson Archives in Long Island CITY, not Long Island. It's funny, because I actually unknowingly passed the archives while on my way to a private evening party for The Jim Henson Exhibition, where I met Karen Falk, Director of Archives. Most of the footage, however, are placed in a seperate archive building in California.
Hey Gavry3, I see why you're taking out statements in some of this Wiki's articles about the clips being lost. How smart do you know the clips are not lost? Are you 100% sure the clips have been stored away and not lost?
I think the reason we're all thinking that is just because that video footage all over the world can't be accessed in public. BTW I emailed Sesame Workshop a while ago about those clips I was requesting, and this is what I heard back from them:
"Unfortunately, the clips you requested are not available. We post everything that’s available for public viewing on our YouTube channel – which you’re very welcome to keep visiting for other new and vintage videos!"
Yeah, I thought they held a copy of the clip, but this is simply untrue. They have other video footage, nothing being the scarce Ernie clip we sought.
Oh. Yeah, um, I had to title them in Castilian Spanish because I wanted to avoid confusion with them being taken from the Mexican Spanish co-production Plaza Sesamo. Barrio Sesamo is the Castilian Spanish co-production.
That's what I'm actually talking about. Pronunciation of Castilian Spanish being different from Latin Spanish is why I give some of my videos a Castilian Spanish language in the title to let any foreign speakers know, so as to avoid confusion with regular Spanish, otherwise they may not translate it correctly.
I ask that you go on the Muppet Wiki article about Granny Fanny Nesselrode and edit the list of Answer Lady sketches by making it into a column box (like how all the other lists of sketches on the wiki are). Here's something simple: Just copy and paste this box into the article while editing the article (but you may need to edit the source and make it look good).
Granny tries to solve the problem of why ketchup won't come out of a bottle. Her co-host points out that she should remove the bottle cap first. Having solved the problem, Granny ends up pouring ketchup all over the place.
Granny shows how to make a telephone call, but can't figure out how to use the phone.
And I want you to hyperlink EKA, Episode 0244, Episode 0246, and Episode 0295 to the Muppet Wiki pages. Can you do it for me and not postpone it??? I tried to create multiple accounts over there but I'm still blocked because Scarecroe blocked me by IP address.
