    I taped it off TV, and even though the quality is not the greatest, I know I still have my copy because my brother & I watched it quite recently.

    Shows how daft I am. If Walt Disney didn't own Muppet Babies why would this forum be under the Walt Disney title heading.

    Because The Walt Disney Company now owns The MB's.

    Blockbuster had a copy of it. I rented it once but after that since ours closed down because of Hastings then I haven't been able to find it. I always loved this speical. They showed us once in school. I also saw it on TV too. I would love to see this on DVD. I love all the cartoons that were in this special.

    I also have the tape(not taped from TV, the retail tape) of it. Its a really good special, and it starts with a short into by Mr. and Mrs. Bush sr., probably sice Barabara bush used to have a storytime with alot of those characters on the radio.

    I would be willing to trade with any1, if they have something good.

    GArfield and ALF together in one special. 80's as heck!

    And the only official time too. He commented on the Garfield baloon at the Macy's Parade in 87 (I think), and in a MAD magazine they had an ALF celebrity cat cook book where he cooked Garfield. (Off topic... the Mad Magazine ALF parody had a lot of Muppets in the background. You may want to check that out).

    I totally remember that. I rented it like every weekend at one point.

    It taught me the values of not smoking, or else cartoons will yell at me and beat me up.

    I downloaded this yesterday and it is so bad that it's actually quite good. The introduction by George and Barbera Bush at the start is strange indeed!

    I wonder why Michaelangelo was the only cartoon character in the special who didn't appear on the cover.

    Beats Me!Also,During The Credits during the special and The Description of The back of the cover,It said Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on it.I wonder why they totally did that since it was just MichaelAngelo.If it was 2-4,Than it would make sense to add Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.:concern: :smirk:

    I loved that special, we actually managed to copy it onto a VHS tape, from the rental copy, and I have to say that things like this (and Too Smart For Strangers) helped make me the responsible adult I am today.

    I really loved this special as well. In fact when I was in 3rd grade when it first came out, my principal had all of the 3rd and 4th graders come in the cafeteria and watch this special one afternoon. It really was awsome seeing all of the current Saturday Morning Cartoon charachters from that time on there. It's something I'll never forget, and I do hope it comes out on DVD today because I think the kids of today are in a bigger need than ever to see a video like this before they get to the age where drugs become available.

    So awsome fine anything muppet. Can't wait to watch it. I rented it some long time ago. I've always loved this speical. It taught lots of kids not to do drugs. Glad to see it still around. This brings back lots of memories.
