    That looks fantastic!
    Although the pattern of material on the nose is better in the mini Beanie from Walgreens.

    Id love to see more if you could take some photos!
    Im especially interested in seeing Kermit, Fozzie and Rowlf.

    And does Animal have a fur face, Or is it the same design as the beanie?

    see ya

    All my Target had was Kermit, Fozzie, Piggy, and Gonzo.

    When I get them, I'll add more pics .... that is assuming someone else doesn't beat me to it.

    Thanks for posting this! I love Muppet Babies. In the 80s I had the Muppet Babies colorforms playset. I loved it because it had a picture of the real Baby Animal.

    Do we know what episodes of Muppet Babies are on these DVDs?

    Great stuff, but I wish they'd sell the DVD's seperately with more than one episode... I will buy one reguardless...

    Those pictures look absolutely nothing like the real things. Aside from the VERY different looking heads, the costume on Gonzo is totally wrong from mine.

    Packaging ratio for the Muppet Babie Beanies...

    I thought this might be good info for thos that are interested in the Beanies. I just got back from a local Target that had just put out a new box of these. There were 3 Kermits, 3 Piggies, 2 Gonzos, 2 Fozzies, 1 Animal :eek: :( , and 1 Rowlf :eek: :( .

    So if you see a Rowlf or Animal, and you want them, be sure to grab them!

    As far as the 10"ers go, Kermit, Piggie, Fozzie, and Gonzo are indeed the only ones shipping at this time.

    And for those that have said that the pictures on that site do not do these justice, you're mostly right, especially with Gonzo, but the Fozzie pictured on that site looks much better than the real thing IMO.

    Does anyone know which episodes come on those DVDs?:confused: I have emailed the company but they haven't responded yet.

    I'm answering my own question because I got a response. Here is the email I got:

    Each character features a different episode, as follows:

    Gonzo: Baby Gonzo's video show
    Kermit: Daily Muppet
    Miss Piggy: Hyperactivity Book
    Fozzie: eight take away one equals panic

    Thank you for contacting The Betesh Group with your inquiry.

    I'm going to ask about which episodes will come with Animal and Rowlf later.

    I actually remember these episodes. Especially Baby Gonzo's Video Show because it included a parody of Star Wars (I'll bet that's why you got it, huh, JediX ;) ). I looked up their descriptions on www.tvtome.com.

    COOL!!! That's a great selection of episodes!! I always liked the earlier episodes anyway..:)

    I bet Baby Animal comes with Noisy Neighbours!

    Yep. "From a Galaxy Far, Far Away" (episode#12) also has a Star Wars parody in it, too (this episode was released on vhs in the Muppet Babies series back in the early 90's). "The Daily Muppet" was also released on VHS for McDonald's in the late 80's (I also have this tape).

    A agree, Baby Rowlf -- the earlier episodes were much better. I mean, I like Bean and all, but he just didn't work with the cast.

    I love and will always love MB...Yes it is NOT muppet canon inany stretch of the im-ag-in-ayy-sheee-un, but still. Gah, one episode per dvd...oh well, if it was commercial there better be 5 episodes! heh I will say I am not so much into post 1986 episodes(like Transformers!) 84-86 or nothing I say!

    anyone have a brief summary and year release for each epsiode available?
    I so want a baby rowlf!!!

    The TVTome guide might have summaries, but as each of us gain them we can post episode descriptions here.

    Do you mean the episodes released w/ the plushes, Cory? I have Gonzo's Video Show & Daily Muppet (from that VHS), so if you want summaries of those... The TVTome guide will most likely have release years (or at least group them by season) so you can just do the math and figure em out.

    Darn it Bombay... :rolleyes: I had just left the school to use the computer the day I posted and whent to Target... I was about to tell you, ad then you found out... Oh well...
    Was it the early parody episode? The one where Rowlf is Obie won Kanobie? If so, I need to find 15 bucks to get Gonzo right away!

    Too bad they couldn't put 2 episodes on DVD....

    I was hoping when I read the article it was a larger DVD featuring 3-5 episodes with a small plus toy of Kermit or something, it's the opposite... weird. Oh well... hopefully these will do good enough to warrent a DVD release of more MB episodes... hopefully all fromk the first few seasons...

    Wow, that's great! As a Muppet Babies fan, I can't tell you how thrilled I was to learn of this. I've been dreaming of MB in DVD for years... but it's disappointing that it's only one episode per DVD, and you have to buy a plush in order to get it. Plus I already have all those episodes on tape. Sigh... oh well. Hopefully something even better will stem from this. But the plushies have caught my attention, and perhaps if I can find one I will buy one ;)

    That's ok. Thanks for thinking of me.

    I went to Target yesterday to see if they had them and they do! I was surprised! And they look much better than the pictures make them look. I really want to buy the Gonzo one but I'll hold off.

    Yeah... Gonzo is the one I want the most, Kermit a second, and Rowlf Third... but that's factoring in the DVD episodes. I loved Daily Muppet (the episode with a cameo by Oscar the Grouch in it).

    But since Gonzo comes with the Star Wars episode, he's more irresistible.

    Anyone know what Rowlf came with?

    I hope they make a series 2 with Bunsen and Beaker, and Scooter and Skeeter...
