Hopes for The Muppet Show Season 4

    Pepe as a cover would make about as much sense as splashing Elmo's face on an Old School release (from the 70's, of course). He wasn't in the show, and with the exception of Bonus features, he's not featured on the disks at all. No doubt it would be Gonzo or Animal, since that seems to be how they usually market things...

    I agree, :concern: or :halo: are probably going to end up being on the cover of the last two season releases.

    Yeah, Pepe should not at all be on the cover, although, I won't be surpise if Disney did seek him in just cause he's such a popular Muppet now. Sesame Workshop did put Elmo on the cover of the new "Follow that Bird" DVD, even though he's in that movie for about a total of 20 seconds, :rolleyes:.

    I still think Disney should do a whole blow out of characters for the cover of season five, I just think it would be way cooler.

    I know Pepe is a pretty popular character and all, but I still don't think he's as recognizable as Animal or Gonzo even in the public eye.

    I like Pepe, but I just can't see him working on a cover. Even on a Muppets Tonight DVD. I would rather see Clifford. He's far more colorful and eye catching.

    Actually, I think it would be interesting to poll potential customers who are not impassioned Muppet fans.

    Hey, the Garfield and Friends DVD collection had a picture of Arlene on one of the disks. While Arlene did have a 10 second non-speaking cameo, she was never used in the show for some weird, complicated reason (Hense why Penelope was created).

    I agree, Pepe wouldn't work. I like him, don't get me wrong, but he didn't even exist yet so it'd make little sense for him to be on the cover of something he was never in. Sorta like sticking scenes in a trailer that are never actually seen in the movie.

    wow i like the thought of having all the muppet chartors that have been in all 5 seasons of the muppet show on the cover would be the best .

    i really hope they do that but with the ways that the covers have been going that probly will not happen . i love the covers so far though the specal edions with the fir on the boxs that is great . The only one that i missed was season 1 for that but the others i have gotten those two where the best with the fir so far .

    Well i only hope it gets released in the US, UK or Australia.

    In germany there was a release date ( 28.2.2006) 3 years ago for season 1 but got delayed over and over again for no reason ( well nobody said why ) and at least Disney Germany did chancel it.

    Oh by the way i own 3 seasons from 3 different countrys.
    The first DVD box i got was from USA Season 3 at preorder price very cheap. I think it was 25$ plus shipping in 2008.
    the 2nd box was Season 2 from Australia i ordered in december 2008 at the big sale on Ezydvd for 25 AU$ plus 3$ shipping. Around 18$ in total.
    Season 1 i did order last month from the UK for only 13 Pounds and 2 shipping. thats around 21,5 $.

    I think i like the US Box most but the others are good too.
    The Australian ones are a whole plastic case with holders for the DVDs inside.
    The UK box actually has 4 slim cases and a paperbox around.
    The US box you guys should know i think its a digipack.

    The picturequality and episodes are the same the only difference is US box runs in NTSC while the other two run in Pal.

    Beside that i think subtitles and language settings are a little different but thats it.

    Anyway i would love to have the boxes with german dub.

    I don't mean to complain or sound impatient or cause an uprising or anything... but...

    Season 3 was released on May 20, 2008. It hasn't been a year yet since it was released, so we might still be on the "one-a-year" schedule. However, it has been over a year since season 3 was announced... and there's still been no announcement (or even a rumor) about season 4's release.

    Hopefully, we'll see season 4 on dvd sometime this Spring. Maybe the Summer at the latest. But I can't help but worry that they might hold back until the Christmas season. And it would be a real shame if they wanted to wait until the promotion of the new Muppet movie to release season 4.

    (hopes to see an announcement in the next couple of weeks)

    Thank you so much for giving the revews of all the county box set of mupppet shows seasons that you own .

    I have been wanting to know about some revews of what people thoguht who owned , sets from several different counteries .

    i really love this show so much , it was my all time faverite show before Dr Quinn Medician woman came out so now i have 2 all time faverite shows now LOL .

    That is really the truth.

    I really hope that season 4 comes out soon world wide for everyone .

    i really hate to hear about the fact that the release has not come at all for Germany for the Muppet show that reaally sucks .

    This show is a timeless classic full of fun Muppet magic for the entire family that Can bring Joy in Good times and bad i know that the show has done that for me and always will .
  11. truthfully, i couldn't care less who's on the cover, whether it's grover, jim henson's bare hand or danny devito, i just want the d# things to come out already!

    Youre welcome, glad someone was looking for this information.
    After i took a closer look into the boxes i must say while the furry paperbox is funny the whole paper thig i dislike on boxes.
    After having problems with season 3 box and booth seasame street old school boxes i dont really like them much.
    The paper got teared up after u put the digipack into the outer box ruining the wohle pictures of em only because it fits to tight.
    The US box has also a flaw with the DVDs laying over the other while they in seperate holdings in the UK and Australien boxes.

    One flaw of the Australien box is the big General sign on the cover. Beside that the box is slim and i covered with plastic witch i like more.

    The UK box is good and has for every DVD a slimcase because of that its bigger then the US and Australien box.
    I think i will get me another season 3 box from the UK or Austalia since they cheap there, plus its more easy to add german dub if i get hands on some.

    I think that Animal is the most logical choice for Season 5, but I think that maybe Rizzo might sneak in under the radar.

    My top choices for Season 5:
    Statler and Waldorf
    Swedish Chef
  15. rizzo wasn't on the muppet show. not like the rizzo that we're all familiar with now. there were some rats, but i'm not sure if rizzo was one of them. i think he got his name in MTM

    I'm not sure exactly how developed he was. But I know Steve performed a rat puppet in Rizzo's voice during "Another Opening of Another Show." :shifty:

    Well that's a shame we have to wair another year, but Disney can't be blamed for that, though their are still a few people whom would blame Disney.

    I'll be looking forward to getting the Star Wars cast one as well as the Dudley Moore episode, I thought Dudley was great in that episode, but the real reason I love that episode is because of the storyline of the real musicians such as Rowlf and the Electric Mayhem band getting their jobs taken away by MAMMA.

    The only thing I blame Disney for is not working on music and guest rights en masse.... There's no call for it to be that big a pain in the neck. We really need to change these music rights laws.

    Didn't someone state here earlier that they'd hammered out the music rights for season 2 and beyond? Maybe that's not true? It is a huge feat. I'm sure we won't have such difficulties with Muppets Tonight later on because it was made in an era of the Home Video market.

    Maybe the placement of season three so close to season two set saw a drop in sales? The long wait could be an effort to make up for that.

    Either way, I just want the last two seasons.
