    I wonder if anything will be cut from this. I know it contains clips from early stuff owned by other companies, like Sam and Friends (owned by Universal) and the various commercials and variety show appearances (owned by respective companies). Hopefully those clips will be cleared (though I know that it includes one Ed Sullivan Show clip that was cut from the Muppets Magic DVD due to music rights).

    I don't think we should be too worried. The special runs for 52 minutes, as noted on the description, so that should say something.

    Anyway, I already have a DVD-R copy of this and have seen it numerous times, but I see a good chance of myself buying this, only due to its great quality.
