    iTunes just makes everything look pricey.

    Sales decline year-after-year.

    As much as I'd love physical media like VHS and DVD to become a thing again, DVDs have unfortunately been surpassed by streaming.

    I still disagree. DVDs WILL continue to be a thing and become a thing again as our economy heals.

    No time for pessimism.

    I think many collectors and fans wil buy it. Many people grew up with this show.

    If you can get me 50 fans willing to do whatever it takes to try and get the show released. Then I will start the movement again!

    Well it's a start, the road to getting this released in any way shape or form is going to be a long one.
    After the latest show being canceled is just going to make this even more challenging, but nothing is impossible.

    I have a question for Muppet Jake, did you send Disney an e-mail or a hand written letter? The reason I ask is because if we can get enough people to write, call or something to Disney they will have no choice but to respond in some way.
    I have always believed, that if fans really want this they have to show Disney how much they truly want it. The Muppets franchise is kind of at a crossroads right now, and I think if we could make enough noise, we might just have a chance.

    Hmmm... Could you actually hand-write/type them a letter because I could actually consider doing that.

    Of course you can! At one point I was considering trying to get as many hand written letters as I could from fans and send them all at once to Disney. When I get home I will do some searching for there address.

    I refused to join because I thought it was one of the most inane and moronic ideas in the history of inane and moronic ideas. However many years later it is, I *still* think it was one of the most inane and moronic ideas in the history of inane and moronic ideas. And it is highly unlikely I will ever change my mind either.

    Then, be a true Muppet fan and change your mind! It's a great idea!

    Remind me the last time an online fan petition worked.

    It also doesn't help that practically all DVD releases are Vanilla Editions anymore (mainly because they want you to buy the Bluray releases instead). Heck, John R. Dilworth has taken it upon himself to post commentaries for fans on his YouTube channel because Cartoon Network released all four seasons of COURAGE THE COWARDLY DOG with no special features whatsoever.

    That also brings me to. . . .

    If I ever hear of any results being made in regards to the 2003 petition asking Cartoon Network to greenlight a fifth season of Courage, I'll let you know.
