    Muppets Tonight only lasted one season, didn't it? I have them all on video.

    I think SS Season 1 would be cool on DVD, but 35 years' worth? oof.

    MT! lasted for two seasons before getting the axe. ( :eek: ) The second season was carried over to the Disney Channel.

    There were two (2) seasons of Muppets Tonight produced. During the two seasons there were 22 total episodes made (that is equal to the size of just one of the Muppet Show's seasons). It would be cool if Disney release a box set of "Muppets Tonight - The Complete Series" after they finish all five Muppet Show - the complete season box sets.

    Fraggle Rock - Season 1 Release Month Named even as HIT! Shareholders approve buyout offer
    Posted by David Lambert

    Just over a week ago we showed you proof that HIT! Entertainment is indeed bringing out season sets of the Fraggle Rock series in the Fall. Now the folks at "The GelflingWaldo Files" bLog site are reporting that September is the month in question, and names the episodes that you'll find on this set:

    1. Beginnings
    2. Wembley and the Gorgs
    3. Let the Water Run
    4. You Can't Do That Without a Hat
    5. The 30 Minute Work Week
    6. The Preachification of Convincing John
    7. I Want To Be You
    8. The Terrible Tunnel
    9. The Lost Treasure of the Fraggles
    10. Don't Cry Over Spilt Milk
    11. Catch the Tail by the Tiger
    12. The Finger of Light
    13. We Love You Wembley
    14. The Challenge
    15. I Don't Care
    16. Capture the Moon
    17. Marooned
    18. The Minstrels
    19. The Great Radish Famine
    20. The Garden Plot
    21. New Trash Heap in Town
    22. Gobo's Discovery
    23. Mokey's Funeral
    24. The Beast of Bluerock

    Info about extras wasn't available yet, nor a specific release date. Stay tuned for information about that, and keep tuned in after that to be sure that changes don't occur as a result of HIT! Entertainment's pending change of ownership. Last time we mentioned that, we told you that Lions Gate Entertainment and Classic Media were among the bidders. Classic Media has now pulled out of the horserace, and another suitor, Apax Partners, has put forth a bid that HIT!'s shareholders have found acceptable. Lions Gate has a limited amount of time to tender a counter-bid, and if they don't do it or fail to make an offer that's preferable to Apax's, then - according to a Video Business report in the new issue - the Apax deal would be finalized around the end of this month. We will have to wait to see if any of that makes a difference to Fraggle Rock or any other of HIT's releases planned for later this year. Our thanks to reader George Oscar for his tip-off about the bLog listing.

    Glad to see that the information I dig up is getting out there on the big name sites (even if they are 4 days behind - just kidding). ;) I'm still working to get you all the full details of the set. I've been told an official announcement with a lot more details should be out "soon".

    So, what do you guess the price for the 1st-season set will be?
  9. GelflingWaldo

    GelflingWaldo Well-Known Member

    HIT has not released or even hinted at a retail price yet, but based on the price of other similar box sets of equal size it would probally be between $20-$40.

    EleganceLiberty Well-Known Member

    Wow. Compared to the price of box sets these days, that's pretty inexpensive. I could easily get 2 dvds for that price. D=

    If I'm not mistaken Fraggle S1 was 24 episodes. With bonus features that could be 3 discs and if the packaging was slimpaks it would be around $30.

    I really hope they put out all of them. Maybe if they do they'll put their super secret special ending in the last box set. ^_^

    Finally some really good muppet dvd sets! Fraggle Rock and the Muppet Show each comingo ut around the same time. Now we just need Sesame Street, though those seasons are far too big to even consider.
  20. GelflingWaldo

    That is unsure. I've contacted HIT about this several times. And HIT has yet to comment on the exact release date; all they are saying is "September 2005". Not to put Amazon down or anything, but they have been wrong before in stating release dates for pre-released items (especially when an item's exact date is not released so they end up guessing). Until HIT officially states the date I would not consider this one the definitive date. It is possible - just not official...yet.
