    For an extra I think they should add the screen tests that they made a few years ago. I love the "I Love Lucy" one that's on the one disc I have (the one with Steve Martin) but I'd love to see the others as well.

    And people complained and said Disney will not do anything with the Muppets, HA! They are doing more than Henson did! I read an article in Disney Magazine about Muppets.com and the stamps, and they gave major props to Jim, didn't leave him out, they refered to him as "the Muppet Creator" I have and have never had any doubts that Disney is going to do great things with the Muppets, now I wish Fraggle Rock got sold to Disney!

    I hate to be a bubble burster here, but even if we get the original first season opening themes (and this shouldnt even be a question of *if*...if there are still debates going on with the dvd team about whether to include them or not, we should all set them straight as to why not including them in this media format would be a severe crime to fans and the dvd industry)...dont look forward to getting that original final shot of Zoot in the closing themes. The credits over that shot refers to the distributor at that time which they wouldnt be able to include on a current airing or release (which is why a brand new shot of Zoot was recorded in the mid 80s when the distributor changed). Unless Henson still has a copy of the original closing theme footage lying around before they superimposed the credits over them (unlikely precisely because it hasnt resurfaced thus far), you wont see that final shot as it originally aired. Most likely it will be replaced with the Disney or Muppet LLC logo as the last note is sounded.

    I can live with that, as long as the original openings are used.

    Yeah, me too. There's probably a point at which completism or perfectionism becomes impossible, but it sounds like Disney is really trying hard to make these releases something special for the fans.

    Ohhh yeah. Just got my tips from the hotel I work at, and I've put the lot away in my Piggy bank to buy these when they come out. Have thirty-five pounds there now. So, they jolly well better come to England.

    Great. And I just blew all my Muppet money I had set aside. That's what I get for getting impatient with these things. Oh well, I'm starting over. One dollar at a time.

    Oh well. Never mind. Start over. Get another slotted pig.

    It's a great time to be a Muppet fan...
    and a bad time to always be broke because you're a Muppet fan.

    I know. You know what I blew my money on? Follow that Bird, A Bert and Ernie CD, and a cable to hook up my video camera to my laptop so I can edit movies for my project.

    Uh..huh. And I wanna buy a decent computer microphone that doesn't make me sound like a mouse when I record my voice. In other words my current older than dirt one kinda takes out the bass in everything.

    I have always been a little uneasy around the Disney deal... especially since they prematurely ended the Palisaeds contract. And the iffy looking Muppet Oz special. But I think that when these sets are released, this may shift my judgement. I mean, not even Columbia had Season sets. They had a boxed set, but it was meerly already released DVD's in a cardboard box.

    But then again, the last couple of years, I've seen stuff I'd never think would ever be on DVD...

    Fraggle Rock, Heathcliff, Fat Albert, Garfield specials and series, stuff like that. A lot can change in a year.

    The Muppet line was only suposed to go tell the end of 2005, Disney had nothing to do with bad retail. That was the people who bought them's fault. NOT DINSEY. Also, Henson started the Oz thing not Dinsey, it was already in the works before the big Sale!
    I hope this clears up you bad judgment!
