Sesame Street Classic Skits Perservation
Time

Okay, just to update, the American Archive of Public Broadcasting (AAPB) will be preserving every episode of Sesame Street so far to celebrate the show’s golden anniversary. However, nobody mentioned anything about these episodes being available to watch on the AAPB’s website, so I’m wanting to make that happen. If they do become available on the AAPB’s website, I’ll let you know. As for my animated remake of the first season, I have finished recreating the funding credits. However, I’m not sure if I want to redo it because on the Season 1 credits found on the Old School DVD’s, the funding credits dissolves to the NET logo, but on actual first season episodes that I found on YouTube, it’s just a simple cut. I guess I’ll just have to see if the digitized episodes by the AAPB will have a simple cut if they ever become available on their website. Thanks for your help in trying to find these lost skits from the first season and please let me know if any of you do find something.

Sesame Street Classic Skits Perservation
Time

Hello. I have this idea for an animated recreation of the first season of Sesame Street from 1969 to 1970. This project will have all the street scenes completely remade, with a new voice cast. The Muppets and cast skits will have the footage remade, while the audio will remain the same. However, I have found out that some skits from the first season have claimed to be lost, either completely or partially. If anyone has the lost Season 1 skits in its original English audio, then that would be fantastic. I look forward to hearing about these lost Season 1 skits. Thank you very much.

Sincerely,
UncutIsSuperior, who will be providing the voice for Mr. Hooper, as well as all the Muppet characters whenever this new cast is needed.

Restoration Of The Star Wars Deleted Scenes
Time

Hello. I just want you to know that I’ve given up on making my Ultimate Edition of the Star Wars saga as a fan edit. Instead, I’ve decided to make it as an animated remake of each movie. Of course, the music will be the same, but the voices will be re-recorded. However, I still want the deleted scenes from the entire Original and Prequel trilogies restored for use in a film comic adaptation of the saga, so please let me know when they’re finished. Thank you.

If you’re looking for non-Adobe software to learn on, DaVinci Resolve seems to be very popular recently. Sony Vegas has long been a top choice for fan editors, too.

Hi. I’ve been thinking about your advice on color correction. I’ve been doing some research on DaVinci Resolve, but the Studio version is way too expensive. So, yeah, I don’t think color correction is going to be worked on for my projects. Besides, in my recreation of the Original Theatrical Version of Disney’s Fantasia, I personally think the censored scenes look good as they are, even without color correction. Thanks again for your advice.

Sounded a lot more like a demand that someone else do all the work for you instead of a polite request to me.

Like I said, I know absolutely nothing about color correction. It’s too hard and too complicated. And I know, I’ve tried it. Now, because of these posts, I personally started to lose hope in ever doing an “Ultimate Edition” of the Star Wars saga.

Never too late to learn. How you came off seemed rude and demanding. Most of the time with a project like you are trying to accomplish, the files are not just going to be there and ready. You will have to put in work with it. Everyone starts somewhere with editing. I recommend looking on YouTube for tutorials depends on your editor. I personally use Adobe Premiere for most of my work. Adobe has a 30 day free trial of it.

I actually tried to do color correction with one of my own projects, but it seemed too hard and too complicated. Also, I am personally boycotting Adobe products because of the lack of a perpetual license, so if you know of an alternative, could you please let me know? Thank you.

No one likes being told what to do, especially with things they spent time on and didn’t get paid for. Asking for it would probably be more effective in getting what you want. Just a thought.

I did ask for everything to be in 720p for my “Ultimate Edition” of the saga. I tried to be as polite as I could, but Jaxer proceeded to make fun of my request, possibly completely unaware of the fact that I know absolutely nothing about color correction. I was offended by their response, so I calmly stood up to them. If you thought I was being bossy, then I’m sorry if I sounded that way.

About restoring the deleted scenes for the entire Original and Prequel Trilogies, I prefer my “Ultimate Edition” of the saga to be in 720p, which means I would like the deleted scenes from TPM to be in 720p as well, including the ones that made it in the post-2001 versions of the movie. Just to recap, everything must be in 720p for my Ultimate Edition of the saga. Thank you.

Will it work for this: https://archive.org/details/dailymotion-x2oxlbx ?

Thank you so much for posting that link. I’ve been trying to find Mewtwo Strikes Back exactly as it premiered in theatres in July 1998. The video seemed to be only slightly cropped, but I can handle it. Again, thanks for posting the link.

I’ve just started my own preservation of this seeing as I’m having more success now. Unlike UncutIsSuperior’s, I’m going to be using already existing sources rather than creating my own and overlaying DVD footage over VHS where possible and only using VHS footage when there is no alternative. So the “episode” footage will be taken from the 2004 DVD’s, the opening titles (except for the episode titles shots) will be taken from the “Truckloads of Fun” AUS DVD, and VHS for the episodes title shots, nameboards, Screen Legends/Pickwick video logos, scrolling credits and any transition effects. I’ve even gone as far as to overlay the Screen Legends promo which I’m quite impressed with so far.

I’ve started with Series 2 mainly for 2 reasons. One, all the nameboard sequences are the same order throughtout unlike Series 1 so less work there, and two, It’s my favourite season. So far, I’ve just about finished “Thomas, Percy and the Coal AoS” and will do the other two Series 2 VHS’s, then I’ll move on to Series 1, then I will redo Series 3. Series 3 for the first 16 episodes because as already stated, they all have an early prototype narration my Michael Angelis and the early VHS’s have Series 2-style freeze-frame end credits. The opening titles, like Series 1 and 2 will be lifted from “ToF” AUS DVD.

The only drawback is that the transitions between VHS and DVD will me noticeable and Sony Movie Studio Platinum 12 doesn’t have a colour-match plugin but with the results I have, it’s a huge step up from my own VHSrips.

That would be nice, but do you even know how to do the yellow vertical line split transition in between episodes? If so, could you please teach it to me?

The Wiggles TV Series 1 Original Broadcast Version Recreation
Time

Hello. Recently, I just got the idea for a recreation of the original broadcast version (OBV) of The Wiggles TV Series 1. All 13 episodes would be shown uncut, and as they originally aired on the Seven Network in Australia.

Now, most of the content from the show that was cut from the DVD release, I think, shouldn’t be too hard to find, but there is one part of content that has been found, but is incomplete and that is the “Kaz the Cat” segments. 12 of the 13 segments have been found via VHS recordings of the OBV of the episodes. Only one of the 13 segments is missing, and that is the segment from Episode 6 - Lilly.

If each of you could find some material that was cut from the DVD release, including all 13 Kaz the Cat segments, then that would be great!

I hope to see this idea become a reality in the future.

I think I already said that I need your file of the Original Theatrical Version of Mewtwo Strikes Back to replace the file that I have. (ripped from the LaserDisc version and therefore, not exactly as it originally aired in theatres) Well, now that I think about it, it would be more possible to obtain your file on MEGA, so may I please have the PM link to your file? Thank you.

If you want to recreate the OBV of those two episodes, use the Kaleidoscope 1985 VHS versions, or if you want to have a nameboard sequence, use the 1988/1992 versions.

I definitely want a nameboard sequence in between “Percy Runs Away” and “Coal”, just like every other pair of episodes from Series 1 and 2, so where can I find the 1988 or 1992 re-releases of the Kaleidoscope VHS tapes? Thank you.

Also on a side note, Series 3 had an “early narration” (by Michael Angelis) for the first 16 episodes which were only released on the original 1991 VHS tapes then later redone for TV broadcast and later VHS/DVD releases, as did 8 episodes from Series 4. I’ve already done a preservation of these myself but they’re also on YouTube;

Back to your main goal, I really hope you pull this off and I’d love to help any way I can. I’ve already transferred my Series 1, 2 and 3 VHS tapes to DVD which I’m happy to share with you if they’ll be of any use.

I would love for you to share your transfers of Series 1 and 2 with me, as long as they have “Percy Runs Away” and “Coal” together as they originally aired on Children’s ITV. (complete with the name board sequences in between) Just so you know, I consider those “early narrations” for Series 3 and 4 more as prototypes than as the original version, so I’ll just use my UK Series 1-11 Classic Collection DVD set for Series 3 and 4. Thanks for your willing to share your tapes with me.
