    I wish I had old "taped off of Nick Jr." tapes to watch some of that stuff. I would love it.

    I would love to get ahold of an 84-86 season of Muppet Babies. I don't even care if its some bootleg. It's just wrong so many garbage kids shows are on dvd, but Muppet Babies(which I consider one of the best of the 80's kids shows) has languished in obscurity for many years. I think the only officially released episodes were the single episodes that came with the Muppet Babies plushes.

    I say we need Muppet Babies and Fraggle Rock Animated season sets!

    I would buy an official set of even just one season so quickly :confused:...All the bootlegs have so many missing episodes (I have never bought one, but I have seen them:p)

    ^ There are also a few places to download them but it's certainly not the same thing to have them on your harddrive - much better to have them on DVD.

    I guess we could try sending letters to Disney or something? But that hasn't really worked in the past.

    Oooh! Cool to see other fans of Muppet Babies and Fraggle animated on here! Im glad to have at least two Fraggle animated on dvd, from the original HIT dvd releases.

    I just want the 84-86 season of Muppet Babies so bad:)

    Hey, I get pretty annoyed when I see all these lame cable shows that I've never heard of jump to DVD the instant season 1 is part way over. I go to that TVshowsonDVD place to see if anything good's coming out, and I find "Jon and Kate Plus 8" or "I Still can't Believe I'm Single" or one of 6000 Food Network shows where they don't even have people cooking the food and giving recipes. Really? Do we really need "The Best Dang Corn Dog I've Eaten Somewhere in Outer Mongolia" Season 3? :insatiable:

    Of course, I'm appauled by how Disney handles their cartoon DVD releases... no special features, only half the series with no plans to continue... I'm sure even if we did get the Muppet babies on DVD, they'd find a way to disappoint us. But I just want them to try.

    Really. They'll put friggin Penelope Pitstop and Charles in Charge on DVD, but not Muppet Babies?
  11. Drtooth

    Penelope Pitstop had a reason to be on DVD... I guess Charles in Charge may too... but definately Penelope Pitstop... after all, that's part of the original Wacky Races trilogy (which included Dasdardly and Muttley in their Flying Machines). And Wacky Races is a classic Hanna Barbera cartoon show.

    The main thing stopping MB, we all know, is all those film copyrights. They could release a best of featuring the last 2 seasons which had only stock footage... but they weren't as good as the classic 84-87 episodes. I really think, while stilted and not as good as TMS would have done, Toei really gave the show a good look.

    Muppet Babies is one of the better children's cartoons, though I personally find old Rugrats better.

    unclematt Active Member

    Rugrats was pretty good but I look at them on two completely different levels.

    JJandJanice Active Member

    I agree with unclematt, I mean if you think about it, it's kind of like how do you compare?

    For one thing, Rugrats created original characters that happened to be babies, Muppet Babies on the other hand had to create baby verisons of already made and well know beloved characters. (Well minus Skeeter)

    Also I think that network tv cartoons are or were much different from Cable network cartoons.
  16. bazooka_beak

    bazooka_beak Active Member

    ^ Yeah, you can't really compare Rugrats to Muppet Babies. Except for being babies and using their imagination, they're hardly the same. At least, I think so.

    Muppet Babies rules! I grew up with this cartoon in the '80s and though I also watched The Muppet Show and Fraggle Rock (both live action and cartoon versions) and Sesame Street, for that matter- I've always loved Muppet Babies equally. They're all great- and I'd love to see Muppet Babies on DVD! A few episodes actually have been released as tie-ins with some stuffed animal-type toys a while back, but I want an actual DVD box set season release. Until it ever happens, I guess I will just have to enjoy the episodes I have on VHS. Muppet Wiki has a pretty good page listing the episodes of Muppet Babies that were officially released on VHS and that's helpful in that regard.:)
