    One thing still bugs me: Why don't they release Babies Kermit and Animal in the outfits they had on the show? Babies Kermit , Piggy, and Animal are just recycled patterns from beanie versions they had in the mid-90s..>.<

    I don't know :sympathy: I haven't seen them yet, but I've started looking for the dolls. Hopefully I'll find one soon. One episode or not per doll, I guess it's better than nothing?

    I am really disappointed that they are not coming out with a Scooter or a Skeeter. They were an important part of the show. Or are there plans to release them at a later date? ;)

    Never know. Releasing just Rowlf & Animal by themselves does seem a bit odd...

    Great news for me, I just saw the dolls yesterday! They're kinda... ugly though :eek: Or at least not what I expected.

    Yea, I prefer the Sababa or the Muppetvision ones but still, better than nothing! :concern:

    Definately! Look how well Sababa did the Fraggles! Those are the best incarnations I've seen!:) As for Scooter and Skeeter....Maybe they'll be released in PVCs or something.

    And on that note, I'd love it if they would come out with multiple pics of the Babies instead of reusing the same pose for each character over and over and over again...>.<

    Are they coming out with Muppet Babies PVC's? I would definitely get them if they did...
  9. jediX

    Dunno, but I have most of the ones they made in the late 80's.

    I have Muppet Babies' Kermit, Fozzie, Gonzo, and Rowlf PVCs from the late 80's. Does anyone know what other characters were made. I am guessing that there was probably a Miss Piggy, but was there also Muppet Babies PVCs of Scooter, Skeeter, and Animal ?
  11. jediX

    jediX Active Member

    I think there was Piggy.

    Personally, I am definately going to get Gonzo when the money comes. But I am too disappointed that Scooter and Skeeter aren't included. I hope they can be PVC's, or (if they do well) a series 3 of the plush.

    Anyway, what really disappoints me is the lack of Baby Bunsen and Beaker... I mean, Beaker's got his standing as a cult character, why not make him a plush/ PVC/ something...?

    I have a question:

    Is the disc slipped inside of that small cardboard case on it's own, or does it come in some sort of individual packaging? Wouldn't it get scratched or marked in that cardboard?
  14. jediX

    jediX Active Member

    It is inside the cardboard envelope depicted in my scans, but there shouldn't be any damage to the disc. Just to be safe you might want to pick up some empty dvd or jewel cases to store em' in.

    Yeah, for the DVD, just wait until AOL sends you a disk and you can use that case. I find that I'm not irritated by them sending me disks because it gives me free cases to put in my DVDs that don't have covers. :)

    Plus, AOL discs make great coasters ;)
  17. Oliver

    Oliver New Member

    As I expected... full of marks and blemishes all over the surface of every single disc.


    What a stupid packaging concept. Couldnt they have just diustributed them in regular cd jewel cases rather than mess up each disc...
  18. jediX

    jediX Active Member

    Yea, but at least it played skip-free for me.

    Better than nothing though, right? :sympathy:
  19. Oliver

    Oliver New Member

    Definitely better than nothing, but at the same time not what I've been hoping for...

    They'll tie me over until a proper release surfaces, I just hope we get word on that in the next year.

    I think Target has had good sales on the Muppet Babies. They are stocked on what I call the Retro-Toy Aisle with Care Bears and Rainbow Bright. They looked picked over and low esp. the beanies and the non-Piggy characters. Like Palisades, I wish companies would realize that Piggy will sell if they make a decent looking version. On a plush I think the only way to do a decent piggy is a plastic head with rooted hair. But they didn't ask me. IMO. Like the original Statler and Waldorf dolls of a few years ago with the flocked faces that is how Piggy would best look.
