Muppet

From Muppet Wiki

The world's best known Swedish Chef.

Sweden is a European country and is the largest of the Nordic countries. Sweden is the first country most people think of when Scandinavia is mentioned. Sweden borders Norway in the west, and Finland in the northeast.

In 1976, Sveriges Television showed a dubbed version of Sesame Street called Sesam. In 1981, Sweden got its own, short lived, co-production of Sesame Street, called Svenska Sesam. One special thing about the show that differed from other Sesame Street co-productions was that all the local-produced segments did not contain any puppets.

References

  • The Swedish Chef celebrates the fact that Victor Borge is the guest on The Muppet Show Episode 405 but stops when Kermit tells him that Victor Borge is Danish and not Swedish.
  • An indirect reference was made in The Muppet Show Episode 524 where Kermit introduced the Viking number In the Navy, calling the Scandinavians for savage and cruel.

Dubs

Only productions aimed at young children are dubbed in Sweden. The Muppet Show, Dinosaurs, and other Henson productions aimed more specifically at adult viewers have never been dubbed, but instead have been shown with Swedish subtitles.

Dubs of Muppet/Henson productions include the following:

Organisation

Ice hockey is a very popular sport in Sweden, more or less equal with football in term of spectator and practitioner popularity. The Swedish hockey pyramid is topped by the Elitserien, a league that exists since 1922, but only took its current name in 1975. Second comes the HockeyAllsvenskan, usually simply referred to as the Allsvenskan, a name that has come and gone during the years in Swedish hockey to designate various competitions. The Allsvenskan as it is now, i.e. a true second division, was only implemented in 1999, as a league split in two 12 teams competitions, Norra (north) and Södra (south). Nowadays, the Allsvenskan is a single competition of 14 teams, as of 2009-10.

Ice hockey in Sweden wholy embraces the promotion and relegation system. The worst two teams from the Elitserien play the best four of the Allsvenskan at the end of the season in a league competition called the Kvalserien (qualification series). Likewise, the worst two teams from the Allsvenskan have to play in a similar competition, the Kvalserien til Allsvenskan, against the top Division 1 teams. Similar competitions exist for the promotion and relegation between the lower leagues.

History of hockey in Sweden

International

On the international level, Sweden is very competitive, continuously ranked in the elite of the world and part of the Big Seven. The Swedish National Team was created late in the 1920's. The team, nicknamed Tre Kronor ("three crowns", because of its logo) is highly regarded, and has several accomplishments justifying its reputation. Indeed, the team has won no less than eight Olympic medals, including two gold (1994 and 2006). Sweden also won eight World Championship editions (1953, 1957, 1962, 1987, 1991, 1992, 1998, 2006), as well as 18 silver medals and 15 bronze medals. Finally, the team ranked second at the 1984 Canada Cup.
