    Hey everyone,
    Not sure if this is where it belongs, but this is pretty exciting news:


    They are reporting that all episodes from the first season of Saturday Night Live will be released in this 8-disc set, in their entirety! It's pretty amazing to think this is finally going to be a reality, when you take into account the hosts and musical guests and legalities and stuff. Either way, if it's true, as the site claims to have verified, all of the original Land Of Gorch skits will be intact. I can't wait for it! I've only seen one in full, from a late-night re-run of Elliot Gould. I read some transcripts, but that obviously doesn't do it justice. Either way, I'm an SNL fan, too, though I think some of the original NRFPTPs were a little over-rated. Then again, SNL's ever-changing cast has been viewed from terrible trash to comedic genius, throughout the years, by different opinions. Just thought I'd contribute this for its importance in the world of Muppetdom. See ya!

    Wow that's really cool! It would be great if they released JUST the Muppet skits though, I don't really watch SNL and I don't think I'd pick this set up JUST for the Muppets, but I'm glad they're available.

    This is good. I wonder how much the set will cost.

    Now we'll have to see if we'll get any Gorch-related special features, such as cast members looking back on the series.

    8-disc set?! That will cost a fortune. 0__0

    if they aren't to much I will get them for the Lard of Gorch skits alone!:crazy:
  9. I can't wait to rent this! I have really been wanting to see the Henson skits on SNL ever since I heard about !

    Also, I think classic SNL was incredibly funny. :excited:

    I seriously doubt any Diz-owned Muppets will be in that set.

    Well that brings up an interesting thought... who owns the Land of Gorch Muppets? I'd imagine NBC?

    ... did they make a Christmas record?

    I think that The Jim Henson Company owns the rights to the Gortch Muppets, while NBC owns the rights to the skits.

    Is that supposed to be funny?

    Disney doesn't own the Gorch muppets, which were featured in the 1st season of SNL.

    Don't worry about that. As mention, these are not the Kermit and friends Muppets, which are the ones Disney owns. These Muppets are still owned by The Jim Henson Company.

    But wow that's awesome, the Classic SNL and Classic Muppets, I think I'm sold. :zany: :excited:

    I just saw one of the articles on the set, it coming with eight discs, :concern: .

    That's probably going to cost a lot.

    Reguardless of who owns Gorch (NBC has full ownership of the segments, but I think Henson has some kind of character rights).... Broadway Video confirmed that nothing has been edited from this set. Not a single skit, sketch or musical performance! So Gorch will be intact.

    I was funny considering the other thread.
    Maybe a good re-read would illustrate the humor.
