Carlo Alban, illegal immigrant[edit]

Just noting this here, in case it's of use, Carlo was undocumented, unbeknownst to anyone. -- Zanimum (talk) 00:45, 11 February 2011 (UTC)

Tina Fey?[edit]

I'm wondering about her inclusion here... is it necessary? Because Kyra Sedgwick as Camouflage Carla, David Alan Grier as Aladdin, and Seth Green as Vinny the deliveryman would all qualify by that count. -- Zanimum (talk) 15:20, 16 May 2011 (UTC)

I think she would've been a guest character alongside the characters done by David Alan Grier, Kyra Sedgwick, and Seth Green. See below for further details. Rtkat3 (talk) 11:27, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

FLC-accredited version[edit]

Following the suggestion of User:The Rambling Man, I have reverted this list to the previous FLC-accredited version. See here [1] for the reasons. Christine (Figureskatingfan) (talk) 16:30, 1 March 2012 (UTC)

I have been involved in that discussion and I think that we should use this section to sort the Principal Human Characters from the Guest Characters and those who were exclusive to "Around the Corner." As for those who would fit the category of the Noodle family and any comedy duos that appeared in the show, I think they would have their own segment section on the page this talk page is associated with. Rtkat3 (talk) 11:27, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
I agree with the first part of the above, and intend on making the split today, as has already been discussed. I'm opposed, however, to splitting up lists unnecessarily, because it can get really complicated, especially with these SS lists. If we were to divide up this list as you recommend, with a Around the Corner section, why not create a Post-40th season section? Remember that this list is a FL, so I recommend caution in changing its format. Christine (Figureskatingfan) (talk) 20:02, 3 March 2012 (UTC)
For what it's worth, major changes to existing featured lists will result in the list being nominated at WP:FLRC to ensure that it still meets the standards expected by the community for a featured list. As Christine has said above, go with caution if you intend a major overhaul of the list; indeed if you intend to make considerable edits, I suggest you either gain consensus to do that beforehand or notify the featured list community that you've radically changed the list since it was promoted.

Thanks, RM. This brings up a question for me, one that I'd like to have answered before I create the new sections as mentioned above. If I were to do that--divide up this list into a "Regular cast members" section and a "Guest characters" section--would that substantially change it to the point that it'd be delisted? If your answer is yes, it would, that would of course, change my mind about following Rtkak3's suggestions. Christine (Figureskatingfan) (talk) 20:34, 3 March 2012 (UTC)
I suppose the best way of dealing with any kind of major change is to either do it mainspace and face the public, or do it in a sandbox and get feedback before rolling it into mainspace. I'm happy to look at anything you suggest Christine. The Rambling Man (talk) 21:35, 3 March 2012 (UTC)
Ok, I've done as you suggest.[2] Looking at it, I'm not sure I like it, because the "Guest stars" section isn't that big, and it begs the question: What is the criteria for putting someone there? One episode? Less than five? I wanted to avoid a list of celebrity guest stars, since that's a different list than characters. I suggest we keep the list as is, FLC-accredited and all.

Jack is missing[edit]

Remember how Jack Black told us about octagons? He's not here! Can someone do it for me? EMachine03 (talk) 23:18, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

@EMachine03: Ew, Jack Black, I really don't like that guy. My favorite part of The Muppets (film) was when the Muppets kidnapped him and tied him up. ;) Seriously, this list is characters of Sesame Street; not guest stars, so it wouldn't fit here.
