Reductive Neighborhood Wiki

Over the course of a few weeks, a bold neighborhood declaration was edited down until it disappeared, leaving only a faint impression. I appreciated the casual, gradual collaboration implied by this erosion.

Also funny that all the weeds disappeared along with the messsage.

Wiki Talk

This Talk page from the Muppet Wiki is more compelling for its detailed banality (and hey, that’s what the Internet is amazing for, isn’t it?) than the Snuffleupagus page they are debating. Excerpt from the much longer entry:

Can Snuffy sometimes still go invisiable? I think I recall sometimes in which characters such as Elmo rode on his back appearing to be just floating through the air. Radar 4:08, 15 July 2006

Snuffy was never invisible. The reason why people didn’t think he existed was because he would always walk away before Big Bird could bring anyone over to look at Snuffy. — Danny (talk) 11:46, 15 July 2006 (UTC)

I know that there was a two-part episode from Season 35 where Snuffy became invisible. Maybe that’s what you are thinking of. And besides, the other characters never thought he was invisible. They thought he was imaginary. I feel like there’s a difference between imaginary and invisible. –Minor muppetz 14:26, 15 July 2006 (UTC)

I agree there is a difference between invisiable and imaginary. My question came because this week I recalled walking into the room while the show was playing and seeing Elmo floating through the air with Snuffy talking. I looked it up online and it was an episode titled Snuffy’s Invisible – Part 2 (#4070)
