More Time/Life DVDs soon?

    WWW.TVShowsOnDvd.com is reporting that another five Muppet Show DVDs are on their way 'soon'. Does anybody have a clue if Time/Life is seriously considering this or if it's just the Time/Life 'maybe' getting repeated somewhere new?

    The word as of a few weeks ago is that they were planning on issuing the current volumes 11-15 on DVD by the end of the summer. These are the same 11-15 that were released on VHS.

    It was confirmed however that they would not be continuing the line of Muppet Show videos beyond their 15 volumes.

    By the way, this forum *does* have a search function. It's very easy to use. The button is labeled "search" and located at the top of every page in the forum. Just FYI.

    Agreed, more volumes would be fantastic, but the only way a license for a product is going to continue is if you buy what they make available for you.

    While Time-Life has made it known that they do not wish to continue their line, this doesn't mean that Henson might not contract with somebody else for episodes that Time-Life doesn't have the distribution rights to. However Henson won't be negotiating a deal for products that don't sell.

    Bottom line (and it's been said many times before): if you want Muppet stuff, buy what's available now. Get your friends to buy them. Buy them as gifts for others. If you have nieces, nephews, little cousins and/or children of your own, getting Muppet stuff for them is a great way to continue the Muppet legacy and also support future products.

    A word of warning - TVshowsonDVD isn't the most accurate place for news - i think the last thing we heard from Time Life was that they weren't going to be releasing more DVDs at all. Maybe someone could email them and get the official word.

    I have the Time Life Best of The Muppet Show 1-10 on DVD and I would love to finish off the set with 11-15 on DVD but for some reason I don't think it is going to happen as it seems a little late in the game to finally release more DVDs when 11-15 have been available on video for awhile.....I hope I am wrong.

    Timelife videos in Canada

    Hello everyone. I am a huge muppet fan! I would love to get my hands on the muppet Show DVD collection from timelife. However timelife tells me they cannot ship it to canada. Big problem. I have never used ebay before but was told this may be my only option. I have been checking it almost everyday to check out the prices on the set. This is where I run into another problem..I have found them at a reasonable looking price until you add the s/h and customs + the nasty exchange rate! I also know that I could do better with timelife once I use discount codes. Does anyone have any suggestions of anywhere else I could find them? Also does anyone know any info about the set eventually being available in canada? I would really love this set! Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

    I think that the Palisades Muppets figures are going to create a muppets craze. Maybe that will promote sale of all of the other muppets merchandise. The release of the Simpsons toys by Playmates certainly gave the Simpsons merchandise a boost. Then maybe we will be able to get more DVDs.

    The Simpsons action figures didn't cause the recent onslaught of Simpsons merchandise, the action figures and everything else were started as part of a merchandising campaign to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the show.

    But it would be interesting if the Muppet figures are a huge hit and it causes a bunch of other companies to scramble to jump on the bandwagon.

    I would like to clarify that I know the recent simpsons merchandising relates to the 10th aniversary of the simpsons. However, people who never collected anything simpsons before, including myself, are now all of a sudden collecting all kinds of simpsons merchandise. This is all because of the playmates line of toys. Similarly, if people start buying these videos due to the success of the palisades muppets then time-life will be more likely to release more videos because they will be making money on them. I have several friends who have already ordered the first ten DVDs since the palisades craze began.
