Japanese 'Jim Henson Hour' Laserdiscs

    We've recently discovered that the Japanese laserdiscs of 'Monster Maker', 'Dog City', 'Song of the Cloud Forest', 'Living with Dinosaurs' and 'Secrets of The Muppets' that were released in the early 90's are actually COMPLETE episodes of 'The Jim Henson Hour'!

    Before now it was believed that they were just releases of the specials, like the recent DVDs. All of the audio is Japanese, but nothing else is changed.

    If anyone has ANY of these please post - We have Dog City!

    awsome, this could be a huge gain for fans. Do you know for sure if they have subtitles?

    ok,that might be a problem. But still, it will be a good colector's item.

    It's better without subtitles, that means that you have a great picture and all that needs changing is the audio!

    True, But how do we change the audio?

    I think he means there's British/Japanese audio, but not subtitles. But then again, I've no idea what a laserdisk even is.

    Aw come on. How many people did you know that actually owned a laserdisk?
  16. Beauregard

    Beauregard Well-Known Member

    That's my point exactly :p

    Basically, unless you're a media collector, you have those three (DVD, Blu-Ray, Download) formats... and even then, it's soon to be just that latter format of Downloads.

    But who the heck owned a Laserdisk? Even when they were around, they were in a small corner in the back of a store (usually Suncoast).

    Unless you were some rich perosn who had everything, I swear the only people who used laserdisks were science teachers

    But, there is probably a way to convert them.to DvD.
