Renominate. I took too long acting on corrections, due to my current ongoing internship. The previous objections seem to all have been corrected. -- Zanimum 19:37, 30 June 2006 (UTC)

  • (Mostly) Support - The article has been separated into new articles where appropriate which saves the it from being too long for reading. The information is also written well. One slight criticism is that there are quite a lot of links to pages that don't currently exist. However, this could be improved by either removing these links (many are not necessary) or creating small articles, if appropriate. --Bearbear 09:54, 1 July 2006 (UTC)
  • Support While I also share the concern of the number of red links, I think this flaw is easily corrected. The article is put together well, written in summary style where appropriate, and has lost the flowery language. Good job—D-Rock 10:55, 3 July 2006 (UTC)
  • My suggestions: Add a proper detailed footnote for the The Real Thing book quote, using a "<ref>" with a "{{cite book}} which specifies the ISBN and page number. Clarify that it is "a book of humorous essays". Find a replacement reference for the Muppet Wiki ( which is not reliable, as anybody can write anything, with no fact-checking. --Rob 23:36, 3 July 2006 (UTC)
  • Support. Well-written, throughly detailed, and compelling with good use of good sources, and a very balanced perspective. I would have liked to see a smidge more about the locally-produced foreign adaptations of the series -- not more than perhaps a paragraph about the commonalities and noteable differences, as well as the local development teams' relationship with the Sesame Workshop (the latter retains rather strict script approval over the foreign spin-offs' content). I'd also be slightly happier if there were some structural link in the article between the foreign-localizations section, and broadcast history section, which discusses the same topic. None of these seem like total deal-breakers, though. Good stuff. -- Lee Bailey(talk) 20:46, 5 July 2006 (UTC)
