    Unfortunately, it's going to take more than righteous indignation to convince a big corporation to change anything.

    You know what might work, though? If Disney started selling web domains for the express purpose of hosting mp3's or video clips or whatever. Think about it--you pay a monthly fee, probably the same monthly fee you pay for any other web domain, and Disney gets the money for that, plus they get reigning control over the websites, so when they release a song on CD--and ONLY then--they can yank the mp3.

    Am I the only one that thinks that has a chance of working because I am a naive college student who has only completed a month's worth of the first class for her CJ minor?

    Ding, ding! You hit the nail on the head.

    I've been telling people for YEARS that JHC, SW, and Diz all read these forums. They don't post, but they read. At least, they don't let us know it's them when they post.

    well, one or two of them do tell us who they are.. though they're generally not the ones we have to "worry" about... heh...
  4. Disney: "How dare they enjoy The Muppets without us making money from it!"
    I hope Disney don't start to tax people on listening to or watching anything that was released before they took over. lol.

    You know, all they have to do is release all the old stuff, unedited and in a format evertyone can access. I myself can't use iTunes on this computer so anything released there has to be traded for anyhow. If I could walk into F.Y.E. or Best Buy and see all the Sesame Street and Muppet albums on CD, remastered and unedited, you can bet that's where most of my paycheck would be going. As it is, I'm snapping up all the out of production ones my FYE has in it's bin, Elmo or not, just to get songs by my favorite Muppets and CD versions of older songs.

    My suggestion: Put this stuff back in production unedited (because that's what WE want and WE'RE the ones buying it) and KEEP it in production long enough for the majority to get a copy (none of this 6 months only! Limited edition! crap)

    Hi Mr Devco... If you go back through this thread to about post #500, a few before that I think, you can read the reasoning behind why Sylinde Bren who runs Muppet Musique had to shut it down.

    Hope this helps and have a good day.

    Ah. I understand. A least I got some of them. I think it's unfair that she had to take them down, especially since the albums are discontinued :cry:
  9. Alot of the stuff, not all but alot, can be purchased second-hand from eBay. Hopefully we will see some of this stuff being re-released on CD in the near future. Disney own the rights, you would think they would want to make the most out of the material they now own.

    We NEED an uncut version of Muppet Family Christmas as The Christmas Toy!

    here are the albums I managed to snag before the site dissapeared
  12. I have most of them on original LPs or CDs but I have never managed to get hold of a copy of the Muppet Music Album... pity.

    Oooh!

    I feel all nakkid...!
  15. In that case, Muppet Musique aside, we should be pleased that some of out ideas and opinions may actually be taken on board. We wanted high-quality Muppet replicas, we wanted season-by-season DVD releases of The Muppet Show and Fraggle Rock, not to mention old skool Sesame Street.
    Maybe they are listening after all. :confused:

    Which is why it's good to be constructive when posting on the boards, and discussion of product is a good idea.

    Sometimes, as with Palisades, the merchadising companies listen (not just JHC, SW, or Diz). It's how we got the greatest set of action figures ever created! I think it began with a poll at henson.com, then Palisades began to post at the old MC Delphi boards and soon enough we got 'em.

    Well I'd personally be thrilled if they did listen. I'd buy reissues of Muppet and Sesame albums but only as long as they remain unedited (yes, I want to hear all the record references. The whole point of buying a reissue is to have the original product that was missed out on, not a cut up version). I seriously spent $60 on Sesame CDs just this month and around $80 on vinyl records. The customer base is there, they just need to sell to it.

    I completely agree. There is a market out there. :)
  19. There is a market out there for this stuff but is it big enough for Disney to make a big enough profit? I was wondering how well the last few Muppet CD releases have sold. I bought them all, each of them managed to have at least a few tracks I didn't already have on CD. I don't mind seeing the original recordings remastered (as with the new Fraggle Rock collection) but I agree, it would be better to have the whole original album than just snippets.

    The problem with the Muppet CD releases is that they keep releasing the same stuff over, and over, and over again.

    If they would make a CD of never before released music, I bet they could make it happen. Especially if they began to do 3 or 4 CD sets with songs sung only by Muppets and not guest stars of The Muppet Show as Season CD sets. It's a long shot idea, but hey: If they put that out, even with previously released songs, I'd buy it!

    Another thing I keep saying and I'm like a broken record: CD Set of The Complete Works of Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem! From all the shows, movies, specials, etc. If it's just Floyd and Zoot then it's gravy for the CD.

    I can't wait to buy the Fraggle CD at the end of this month. I hope SS will also follow that with some never before released songs.

    I'd also love to have the Fraggle Rock extended, never heard or released version of the opening theme song. That would be awesome. Maybe it'll show up on a DVD as an extra or something?
