    Hey Kevin if you don't have that version i strongly suggest getting it! Even though there is no Kermit the extras are well worth it! the bloopers of Frank Oz's voice with Ma Otter are histarical!!!! and the deleted scenes (other then the kermit ones) are great too! This year we had an emmet otter watching party a week or so before christmas. it was so much fun and we kept making a running gag of singing "we're closer now then ever before!":)

    *suddenly imagines you and Zack heading to Hollywood as a team*

    I've never seen this special, I always got the impression that it was slow and/or boring...seems I was wrong and it's beautiful, I must try and track down a Region 2 copy.

    "Movin' right along in search of good times and good news"

    Yeah, I didn't realize the connection in my reply there until after you pointed it out. I should go mark this in that thread about referencing the Muppets and not meaning to.

    I can't believe how stingy and ridiculous Disney was over that. :rolleyes:

    You know what. I've watched Emmet Otter a million times, but I watched this newer DVD around Christmas time and I didn't even realize Kermit was missing. What kind of a Muppet Fan am I? LOL!
