    Just release season 4 and 5, already!! 17,300 people are begging you to do so!!! ( If every member on MC wants Disney to release it, and I think they do.)

    Or perhaps old stock that had not been sold at the time.

    That's what I feel. Like they're completely avoiding the fact they said they were going to release it 5 years ago because they know they're going to get called on it and get angry letters they'll just wind up ignoring anyway. Like I said, Disney just does not like releasing box sets over movies because of the lame "we don't sell enough" excuse. Even though the Muppet Show's previous 3 sets sold quite well. There is hope, though... they just decided to sell the second half of the second season of Gargoyles at retail. So maybe they could change their tune. At the very least they could finish off one lousy Disney Afternoon cartoon. Like that's so much to ask.

    Still, it is obnoxious that we haven't had word on why this has been delayed.

    I wish disney would just release season 4 and 5, even if their is edited episodes.

    Yeah, I know! Who cares? Maybe, a little footage will be cut out, but they can go back and edit them for an Complete Version, later!

    I wish, but you have got to realize that there are probably more inactive members than active on here, including tons of members that have no posts, and others that haven't been here in more than a decade, so there are probably only like 1,000 active members out of the 17,300 who would go begging to Disney.
    I know, they can cut songs out, make a complete box set of the full series, and attempt to secure them. Honestly in the case of season 1 a couple of the cuts didn't hurt the episode, and actually made it better in my opinion (Charles Azanour's dance with Mildred comes to mind). Though most like "You've Got A Friend" and "The Danceros" made me miss them.

    I feel like I can just tell Disney:

    ''Release The Muppet Show Seasons 4 and 5 I have money for you''

    I wish they would give us an update..

    I hope they will soon. For now we can only find low-quality versions of the episodes online (KissCartoon would be the best website, as it lists all the episodes to watch.)

    Did anyone see the interview that the head of Muppet Studios and Kermit the Frog had back in 2015? They said that they are still working on music rights, and royalties. They also said to keep calling and asking about it, because they would love to release them.

    I had A Facebook page called the Muppet Movement. The main goal of the movement was to unite Muppet fans and show Disney we want Seasons 4 and 5. I tried to get some of the other Muppet fan sites including the folks on this very forum to join in. Sadly, it was meet with a disappointing result. A lot of the major voices in the Muppet fandom feel that if Disney was going to release them they would have done so by now. I understand it has been years since the release of season 3, but I also still believe that if the fans showed up then anything is possible.
    Anyways, that's about as an update as your gonna get right now.

    Ya. I remember when you started the movement. At this point, there's not much we can do sadly. DVDs are not the money-makers they were in 2008.

    Sadly that is true, but there are a lot of other ways Disney could release the show. People love the Muppet Show even the casual fan loves the Muppet Show.

    I don't understand why they can't just put it on a streaming site.
    We're nearing a decade of waiting!

    The episodes are online in low quality though, so that's all we have for now.

    And all those major voices (Ryan Roe, Joe Hennes, JD Hansel, Steve Swanson, Jarrod Fairclough, Greg James, Ryan Dosier, certain members of this forum, etc.) should be ashamed of themselves for refusing to join the movement, for not acting like true Muppet fans and for failing to realize that Disney wants them to keep calling them and writing them. :mad:

    But they STILL make money and will continue to be made.

    I think DVDs WILL become the money-makers that they once were again someday.

    But I do agree that they should release the entire Muppet Show series on iTunes as well.
