    I was just on Muppet babies wikipedia and it said Disney has announced they will be releasing the first season of Muppet Babies on DVD!!

    Sad to say they've been saying that for years.

    There are still no plans right now to release the show. If they do I expect a release similar to Goof Troop and Quack Pack.

    Dont even get me started on the stuff I got rid of when I went to college. I've kicked myself everyday for the last 5 1/2 years with what I gave away. Tapes from the 80's with unedited tv shows and specials that aren't available anywhere. Items I can't find anymore.

    I've spent the last three years getting as much back as possible. If I could build a time machine i'd go back and kick myself in the butt while I was in the garage.

    If I had a time machine I would've gone and forced myself to diligently tape it when it aired on Nick Jr. I'm still missing several episodes.

    Is it just me or does anybody else think that these Care Bear remakes are God awful!! The characters have changed too much and they all sound like women. The eighties Care Bears were the best by far!!

    Actually, I ALWAYS found the Care Bears God Awful (at least after I was 5). of course, I do have pleasant memories about the villain's idiot sidekick, Beastly. he desereved his own show.

    It's kinda sad though, since Disney owns it and all. They could make just as much money (or much much more) off of Muppet Babies as they make off with cheap knock offs like Baby Mickey and Baby Pooh.

    Considering Pooh is about a stuffed animal, wouldn't a "baby Pooh" be a sewing pattern?

    I've always found 80's remakes hard to swallow.

    Some of them were pretty borderline in their original state (even though I consider myself a fan), but they were kind of one shot deals.

    Care Bears, He-Man, Thundercats, Transformers, etc. I just could never get into other incarnations of them.

    It would be kinda cool

    I have to say that it would be kind of cool to have the Muppet babies on DVD, but to be honset it's not really a must have for my collection. I would rather have all five seasons of The Muppet show and Fraggle Rock, before the Muppet babies. ;)
  13. MustangRockstar

    MustangRockstar Well-Known Member

    It's really one of the last must have's for me.

    I'd like Real Ghostbusters on DVD in season sets (not this random stuff) and Muppet Babies. Those are my last two must have's.
  14. Daffyfan4ever

    Daffyfan4ever Well-Known Member

    Yeah. I checked the DVD website and noticed that they are releasing The Real Ghostbusters, but just random eps not season by season sets. I think the reason for that is because season two was about a hundred something episodes, so it would take a long time to set up a disk set of that whole season. Besides I haven't really seen that show in years (other than the two eps that are bonus features on the Ghostbusters II DVD), so releasing it anyway is good for me. Besides it's cheaper that way.

    Sorry to get off the topic of Muppet Babies, but I didn't read the first post. I just read Mustang's last post and thought I'd voice my opinion on that. I'll go back to the beginning of the thread and see what the heck everybody's talking about. Lol.

    Yeah like I said, it would be nice, but it's not like I'm going to lose sleep over it. I totally remember wacthing the Muppet Babies reruns on Nick. So if it were to come out, yeah, maybe I would buy it, mostly likely I would. But overall it's not like it's a huge must have, as I stated before I would much rather have all five seasons of Fraggle Rock and The Muppet Show on DVD before the Muppet Babies, that's just how I feel about, frist Muppet show and Fraggles than the babies. As for as the Real Ghostbusters, that would also be kind of cool, but to be honset I was happy that there were just the two cartoons on the DVD set. Speaking special DVD set and I'm sorry to ask this in a way, becuase I know this is a Muppet and Jim Henson site, But I'm also a huge Tim Burton fan. I heard something of a BeetleJuice Special DVD set, anyone have news on that. I hope that do what Ghostbusters did and have a least two of the Beetlejuice cartoons as well. So many DVDs I would like to buy and hope to be made, so little money for the DVDs. :) ;)

    I've always been a "set" fan myself. For space and convience purposes, I'd rather shell out the $25-$35 bucks and have it one sitting.
  17. GelflingWaldo

    Yeah, but a lot of people don't want the whole show. So many shows go through this with DVD releases. There are two groups of consumers. People who want everything (i.e. season sets). And then the people who just want a few episodes to wet their appetite, test out to see if they really life it (or still enjoy it), something fun to share with friends, or just to be nostalgic over. They don't want to sit down and watch hours upon hours of a show. They would rather just pay $10 for 3-4 episodes than pay $40 for 22 episodes. They don't want 22 episodes - they just want 1-2. So why pay an additional $30 for something you don't want (i.e. 18 more episodes you don't care about).

    Personally I love seasons sets and hope more shows get the treatment, but you also have to allow studios to release 1-5 smaller releases for the other kind of consumer who just wants a little for cheap.

    I'm a season fan myself. But yeah what you are saying makes total sense. I think it would be nice to have season sets of Muppet Babies. But for now let's just look forward to the season 2 of Fraggle Rock and hopefully season 2 of the Muppet Show, which to be honset I would rather have, right now.:)

    The show is kind of dated, and would probably only sell to the hard-core fans in any quanity, in my opinion. I'm kind of surprised it has its own section here to be honest.

    I think it holds up better than most actually because there's a def. thought process behind it.

    Personally I find that it hold's up far better than other shows released on DVD from the 80's: Transformers, He-Man, Mario Bros., Zelda, ect.

    Heck I was actually quite impressed with how well Ninja Turtles holds up, mainly because it doesn't take itself too seriously. It knows it's a tv show and it breaks down that invisible fourth wall.
