    GelflingWaldo, don't be so bloody serious.

    I've posted a newer, better, more complete edition of this pipe dream of mine over in the Classic Muppets forum. If it happened, I think any Muppet fan would fall down of shock.

    I REALLY REALLY REALLY want MT! on DVD, and this could be the only way to do it. If you eliminate Big Bag, SS and Gorch, this could be doable between Disney and HIT!...

    And if an animated "Fraggle Rock" was such a travesty (oh, and it was) then why is the torrid, uninspired, horrible, wretched Muppet Babies any better? I hate the show. It's almost as bad as... well, "Big Bag" (which I only included above for the hard core fans) or the animated "Fraggle Rock", or "Mother Goose Stories". (I only used Henson productions here, because you cannot compare a Henson production but to another.)

    Muppet Babies is an awesome movie, which took the Muppets to a knew hight and had more seasons than any other Henson production including The Muppet Show. It deserves a palce on the shelves beside the others.

    I like to see the Muppet Movies presented in OAR(Original Aspect Ratio), more specifically a Muppet Christmas Carol and a Muppet Treasure Island. Give me my widescreen version!!! They should produce a box set including all the movies and then tons of special features, it's possible to get the rights from Columbia it's been done for other box sets.

    From Gelfing Waldo:
    "Parts of "The Jim Henson Hour" are coming to DVD (or already are on DVD), but sadly with the ownership split full intact-episodes are not likely ever."

    What parts are comming to DVD?? what parts already are?

    This is complete news to me.

    "Storyteller" is already out on DVD, both "Greek Myths" and "Complete Collection."

    I hope the rest comes along, I've seen tapes of JHH and thought it was a very well done show.

    I am happy that Follow That Bird is on DVD but am disappointed that it doesn't have more bonus material. It has a trailer but it is pretty mediocre. Anyone who has seen it probably knows what I mean. I would like to see more behind the scenes/making of stuff. Interviews with Carroll Spinney, Frank Oz, Marty Robinson, Jerry Nelson, and Joan Ganz Cooney would be cool. Also, interviews with Sonia Manzano, Roscoe Orman and Linda Bove.

    These are any Henson-related DVDs I'd love:

    - The Muppet Movie, Great Muppet Caper, and Muppets Take Manhattan with better DVD releases than the ones already released

    - Muppet Christmas Carol and Muppet Treasure Island in WIDESCREEN format (the menus and special features are already great though)

    - Every season of the Muppet Show in DVD box sets (can't wait for season one! :D )

    - All of Dinosaurs

    - Muppets Tonight!

    - Jim Henson hour

    and anything else Muppety I forgot :halo:

    I would like it if henson and disney (and possibly hit entertainment, if nessessary) would make a special deal to release every episode of the jim henson hour, uncut and in their original one-hour forms, with show promos (there was a really good one with jim henson talking about the show, which was shown during a commercial break during sesame street: 20.. and still counting) and talk show interviews regarding the show (there was atoday show interview on the day of the shows broadcast).

    otherwise, I would be happy if disney released the following:

    the jim henson hour: the complete muppetelevision (2-disc set)
    disc 1:
    first four muppetelevision episodes (science fiction, aquatic life, monster telethon and the ratings game)
    muppet morsels
    commentary on: the ratings game and monster telethon
    concept art
    interview with jerry juhl
    deleted/ alterd scenes and outtakes
    bonus special: miss piggys hollywood
    original pilot: innertube

    disc 2:
    final four muppetelevision episodes (garbage, health and fitness, musicians, and food)
    muppet morsels
    audio commentary on: musicians
    bonus special: the secrets of the muppets
    easter egg: dog city pre-show
    character bios
    deleted/ altered scenes and outtakes

    the DVD cover would be the picture of jim henson standing next to a tv with kermit and some of the new characters, seen in jim henson: the works. if it was possible for a deal to be made to have all of the shows in their original one-hour orms, then it should include all of the features listed for the muppetelevision set and the other features i mentioned above, and it would be a four-disc set, with 4-5 episodes per disc.

    All episodes of The Storyteller, including the ones from The Jim Henson Hour, already are availible on DVD. The Dog City episode (minus the opening, the pre-show sequence, and possibly Jim Hensons closing if there was one) is availible on DVD in the united Kingdom (but not the United States :cry: ). I don't know if there are plans for anything else from The Jim Henson Hour to be released.

    the muppets take manhattan

    original theatrical trailer
    music video: "I'm Gonna Always Love You"
    interview with frank oz (possibly hosted by either miss piggy or fozzie bear... with eric jacopson performing his characters, frank oz can interact with his own characters)
    all-new mocumentary: the making of manhattan Melodies
    all-new featurette: the wedding of the century!
    interviews with Jim Henson
