I have the original vinyl record for this program. Its copyright, printed right in the middle of it, says 1972. That seems to be two years earlier than what Wikipedia has listed.

I second. I was introduced to the letter people in 1973 when I began kindergarten. I'm changing it to the earlier date.

Pages for each character[edit]

I don't see any justification for having individual pages for each character, nor do I think it helps your cause. It's always better to have one high quality article than a string of bad stubs!

I propose they all be merged here or into a new page such as Characters from The Letter People or The Letter People characters. --kingboyk 18:05, 3 March 2006 (UTC)

As none of the current articles on Letter People characters says anything more than what that Letter Person stands for, I don't even think a list is necessary. "Ms. A is a character on the Letter People. She stands for 'A-Choo,'" gives no more information than the main article already does. — BrianSmithson 18:20, 3 March 2006 (UTC)
I see. I don't know anything about the show, I'm only here as part of my efforts to find a slot for, and disambiguate links to, a rather more notable Mr C.
I'm not sure that it's worth listing them for deletion, however, as they are obvious merge and/or redirect candidates. What would you propose? --kingboyk 18:25, 3 March 2006 (UTC)
I've redirected all of them apart from Mr C, which I am about to study more closely to check if there's anything salvageable. I'd be happier if they were just deleted but I have too much to do without starting and monitoring another AFD debate. I'll also go through this article and remove any dubious red links. --kingboyk 19:48, 3 March 2006 (UTC)
That sounds good. Thanks for your work. — BrianSmithson 20:19, 3 March 2006 (UTC)
Done and looks a lot better. --kingboyk 22:00, 3 March 2006 (UTC)

Keyword corrections[edit]

  1. Mr. Q's new keyword/attribute (after 1990) is simply "questions" with no adjective; I have a PDF file from Abrams & Company to prove it.
  2. Miss U's former keyword/attribute was "upsy-daisy umbrella" (as heard on the television show, at least; the other 1970's teaching material may not have included an adjective before "umbrella").
  3. Mr. W's former keyword/attribute was "wonderful wink"; the 1970's teaching materials, albums, and television show all used that phrase consistently.

  1. Mr. X was not Mixed Up, he was "All Wrong X." The TV show and Mr. X's song all used that description.

  1. Are we sure the original version of Miss O was Optimistic? I remember it being opposites. I was in kindergarten in 1980-1981. Somewhere I think still have the color sheet handouts. Dwp49423 (talk) 14:07, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

Airing[edit]

"The show has aired almost continuously since 1972." Is that right? Where? --GLG, 11/1/09

Merge[edit]

The List of The Letter People characters article duplicates content here and should either be deleted or merged into this article, if there's anything in it worth saving. Mathglot (talk) 20:15, 26 October 2015 (UTC)
