[edit] Merge

Shouldn't this be part of the Skulls page?-LordQuackingstick 13:25, 6 January 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, it should. Do you want to go put it there and see if a sysop can delete this page for you? -Brightstar Shiner 13:27, 6 January 2007 (UTC)
I don't know if all the information on this page needs to be there as well, if he's listed as a Character, then he probably deserves his own page, and in that case not all the information here needs to be on the Skulls page as well. - ISTC 15:29, 6 January 2007 (UTC)
Maybe it can be in both places, but the Skulls page can just have a short description and a link here. -Brightstar Shiner 15:47, 6 January 2007 (UTC)
I'm not sure this guy deserves his own page to begin with.-LordQuackingstick 16:03, 6 January 2007 (UTC)
He is (and always has been) on the Skulls page, and there may be a valid discussion about making a merge, but I'm not sold that it's a cut and dry case. So lets put a merge teplate on this and see what others think. - ISTC 17:55, 6 January 2007 (UTC)
I don't think this page needs to be merged. Keep it. I don't really have a valid reason, 'cept that it "just feels right". (Well, that was lame...)kai lyn 18:02, 6 January 2007 (UTC)
Well, I have a couple reasons to merge it: 1. usually, a thing doesn't get its own article unless it's appeared three times, but this guy hasn't. 2. A lot of more significant things don't have their own pages. 3. This guy fits neatly in with skulls.-LordQuackingstick 18:08, 6 January 2007 (UTC)
The most valid reason for keeping is that this is considered a Character, while Skulls is a list of appearences of skulls. - ISTC 18:09, 6 January 2007 (UTC)
But he's a really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really minor character. I still say MERGE!LordQuackingstick (Talk | contribs) 18:12, 6 January 2007 (left unsigned)
If Tony Stony gets its his own page, then Tentacle Skull definitely deserves his own. By the way, what other significant things lacking their own pages are you talking about? (Just asking so we make 'em some pages!)kai lyn 18:16, 6 January 2007 (UTC)
We should put him in Pseudocharacters and be done with it. -Brightstar Shiner 20:26, 6 January 2007 (UTC)
I think this should be merged. The only reason (in my opinion) that Tony Stony should keep his own page is that there's no Rocks page (please, nobody make that page!) — if there were, I'd recommend that he be merged there too. So, since we do have a page about skulls, this very minor skull that has appeared in only one toon should be merged with it. Trey56 07:06, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

I don't think this guy is all that minor; the Tentacle Skull appears in a lot of scenes in the film and is talked about by the characters in the commentary. Plus, this page talks about how skulls relate to TMBG. Yes, we could put that info in the Skulls page too, but something just doesn't seem right about having mini-articles in running gag pages. Running gag pages should be a list of all appearances and a small description of each one, nothing more. Plus, do you not realize how awesome this little guy is? He's like my favorite part of the whole toon! Has Matt? (talk) 12:17, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

Merge and redirect to skulls. Bad Bad Guy 21:58, 6 May 2007 (UTC)t
I say he should have his own page for several reasons: 1. Tom Servo (a hard-to-notice non-H*R character) has his own page, 2. he's a fairly important character in the video and is mentioned a few times, 3. there is enough info here for its own article. He should probably just be put in the misc. characters section. Enigma 12:14, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

If the Geddup noise has its own page, why shouldn't this cool little guy have one? 75.87.119.195 03:50, 16 May 2007 (UTC)zer

The Geddup Noise has had FAR more appearances, and had a whole email dedicated to it. --DorianGray 03:54, 16 May 2007 (UTC)

Even Gavin has a page, and he's a frickin' cockroach! 75.87.119.195 03:29, 17 May 2007 (UTC)da cheese

Who has also had many more appearances, and been directly interacted with by characters. --DorianGray 03:32, 17 May 2007 (UTC)

he should totally have his own page, because he is not just just a skull, he is a skull with tentacles, which may i point out is way better. --Acam30 19:18, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

lets merge it! Slipknot6477 16:53, 31 July 2007 (UTC) i have no idea how.

This is a character. Characters merit their own pages. Keep. Yes, his interaction is limited, but he is a recognizeable, cool little guy people might want to find a page on. Tom Servo, Don Knotts, Moses Malone and others might object to denying him his own page... Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 07:32, 12 August 2007 (UTC)
Not true Qermaq, see minor teen girl squad characters, these guys don't have their own page. — Defendarrrr1031Talk 14:37, 12 August 2007 (UTC)
Yes, but remember, they're minor characters in a comic produced within a Flash cartoon. That's a few steps removed. One can argue they have less "reality" in the scope of H*R than characters who appear with the regular, "real" characters. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 15:17, 12 August 2007 (UTC)
Well, it could be said that PBTC is comparable to TGS: fiction within fiction. This guy only appears in PBTC-style--Antisexy 23:02, 12 August 2007 (UTC)
Please, merge & delete- I don't really think this guy is a character. Maybe a psudeo-character. He's certainly not a major character. He doesn't even have any lines. Just because something has limbs and rides a bicycle doesn't mean you have to make a page for him. That'd be like making a page for the bug in Bug In Mouth Disease. I mean he's at least relevant to the plot. (Please don't make that page... or... actually... *checks real quick* ... ... ... ... ...you people are sick).
I personally think Tom Servo, Don Knotts, and Moses Malone also need their pages deleted.--Antisexy 23:39, 12 August 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Minor Characters

I think we should make a Minor Characters page and put any character with only one appearance there. Who's with me? — Defendarrrr1031Talk 23:47, 12 August 2007 (UTC)

I think... that would be the longest page ever. --DorianGray 23:48, 12 August 2007 (UTC)
Why? — Defendarrrr1031Talk 23:49, 12 August 2007 (UTC)
It couldn't be any longer than this page.--Antisexy 23:54, 12 August 2007 (UTC)
Actually, it would, because it would have to have more detail and description of each character. --DorianGray 23:55, 12 August 2007 (UTC)
But it wouldn't have all of those, just the minor ones. — Defendarrrr1031Talk 23:57, 12 August 2007 (UTC)
For the real people like Don Knotts, all it would need is a link to the appropriate Wikipedia article.--Antisexy 00:00, 13 August 2007 (UTC)
I'm with you like no otha, brotha!--Antisexy 23:49, 12 August 2007 (UTC)

I'd like to move this conversation to a more appropriate and visible place before it gets too long. How about Talk:Characters? --DorianGray 23:59, 12 August 2007 (UTC)
