    :excited:

    Over the summer I contacted HIT! entertainment several times about a possible "Jim Henson's Mother Goose Stories" release on DVD format. The people at HIT! responded to my letters (as the always seem to do). They said that at that moment there were no solid plans for a product in the "Mother Goose Stories" franchise, but their development and brand team will consider how to fully use many of the newly aquired Henson rights. They said they will pass my letters, and interest along to the propper people to ensure my opinon is heard. Below is a copy of the letter I sent to them. I guess they heard me.

    There are 14 episodes (half-hour each) of the show, I hope they release more DVDs so we are able to see all the episodes again on glorious DVD.

    I can't wait untill we get more details of this product (exact episode listings, details, extras, ect.) I'm sure we'll get them soon. This is exciting news. I loved Jim Henson's Mother Goose Stories and I am happy it will been released again!
