This currently is categorized as a movie but it was not a theatrically released film. It was a "TV-movie". This may sound dumb, but what exactly is the difference between a TV movie and a TV special? Many of the television productions we have labeled as "specials" seem movie-like to me in terms of pacing, style and even length. I just want to make sure I put things in the right place. — WaldoWatcher, 19:15, 28 November 2007 (UTC)
- My preference would be to throw it into Specials. Essentially, this is the Muppets' 2002 Christmas Special. The only reason it calls itself a movie is because of its length. It's not just made for TV, it's designed specifically to be seen on TV, with the TV style and pace that you're talking about.
- The Muppet Christmas Carol is different; that's a theatrical movie, and it acts like one. I'd like to move this to Specials. -- Danny (talk) 21:23, 28 November 2007 (UTC)
- I agree, I think TV-movies should be categorized with specials, as the line between telefilm and TV special is often a blurry one. The Movies category should just be for theatrically released motion pictures - such as The Santa Clause, The Polar Express, Home Alone, The Muppet Christmas Carol, etc. — WaldoWatcher, 16:32, 3 December 2007 (UTC)
- There's no reason why it can't be in both categories unless you have some voodoo transclusion going on. Based on my experiences at other wikis with *a lot* more categories than this wiki, I say if it fits into both categories, keep it in both. Don't try to pigeon-hole it.--Kodia 22:17, 3 December 2007 (UTC)
