    This Thanksgiving weekend don’t miss eight hours of Muppet movie madness as four Muppet movies air on The Hub (formerly known as Discovery Kids). This Saturday beginning at 11 am eastern you’ll be able to watch The Muppets Take Manhattan, Muppet Treasure Island, Muppets From Space and The Muppet Christmas Carol.

    When was the last time they aired a Muppet marathon on TV?

    Odyssey aired several hours of Muppet Show episodes back-to-back about ten years ago. This may be the biggest block of Muppet movies to ever air one after another.

    Nice Due to already airing Fraggle Rock, original Transformers and 80's sitcoms; I had heard a lot of good things about this channel. It's very exciting. My family tradition already for Thanksgiving(and Christmas) has been Muppet movie/specials marathons so this is perfect. One can only imagine(especially with the huge buzz over The Hub) how many new people will be exposed to these wonderful films.

    I was thinking, During this marathon maybe there might be little Bumpers like in between commercial breaks and such of Muppets saying things like 'Your Watching, Muppets Take Manhattan, only on the Hub" or them just acting goofy.

    Maybe there might even be commercials like "Remember your friendships" shows Muppets all together "Remember your first Kiss" shows Kermit and Miss Piggy kissing

    I am just thinking about the Channel and what I seen on that channel already so I was just speculating Nothing here is official just what I thought might happen

    BTW Do you think this Channel could air "Muppet Family Christmas"? They are airing Fraggle Rock and Movie Marathons and other rare TV Shows,

    I can see them airing it during one of HUB's Friday Movie/Special night

    But if not my Family's tape from when it first aired will be just fine!

    This does seem like the longest Muppet marathon i've heard of a tv station airing (US anyway, i'd be interested to hear about marathons elsewhere... (actually i think i'll start a seperate thread)

    Since i didn't ever get Odyssey, does anyone happen to know what TMS episodes they aired when they did that marathon?

    It was a 3-4 hour "Best of The Muppet Show" marathon with episodes like Star Wars, John Denver, Elton John, Julie Andrews, etc. I believe it aired on a Sunday afternoon.

    Just a reminder that the 8-hour Muppet Movie Marathon will begin soon on the Hub. Post here and let us know what you think of seeing four films back-to-back.

    I watched TMTM tonight and they cut out the gang bowing down after Together Again, Rat Scat and Piggy at the beauty shop with Joan Rivers. It was a treat hearing Jim's voice on TV again.

    I watched a little of the Muppet Treasure Island and they cut out some stuff too. Not anything crucial, it was more just the funny little bits that are fun to watch. I want to say they did it because they were on a time budget.
