    Thanks! :) I didn't know it had been released yet. I must have missed that.

    Maybe it's just me, but I think I could do without the animated intros and outros on each episode.

    And that insane disclaimer about how much these episodes will harm children, lol.

    It would be nice if volume 3 will include "We Are All Monsters" with the original audio with Jerry Nelson performing the original Elmo. :laugh:

    I've been thinking the same thing. One of these season premieres has "Me, Claudias", so it should include at least one early Elmo segment.

    I've been wondering how much material that was in "40 Years of Sunny Days" will be included here as bonus segments (I know that "Me Claudias" and the same "geometry of circles" segment appear in the episodes, and a scene from the birdwatchers episode was on the DVD). It seems some of the clips on the 40th anniversary DVD were included because they had related behind-the-scenes footage (the only behind-the-scenes footage included where the related non-behind-the-scenes footage was not included was the "Othmar the Grouch" episode). Depending on how much of the same behind-the-scenes footage is included, I wonder if we'll see the finished segments. I really like "Bring Your Own Can Night", but I'd rather see a different Bruno clip included.

    Somehow I have a feeling this'll have "Me Lost Me Cookie at the Disco". I actually won't mind if we get another release of that (both DVD releases exclude the last ten seconds), but I'd also rather it have a different Cookie Monster song, like "Me Gonna Munch You Munch You Munch You" or "Google Bugle". As far as disco tunes go, I'd also rather it have Disco Frog or D Duah Duah (or Disco Toothbrush, if that's from this time period, but I think it's from earlier).

    I wonder what celebrities will be included in the bonus clips. I doubt any of the celebrities in the episodes will be (considering the previous sets didn't include the same guests in the episodes and bonus clips). These season premieres include appearances by Madeline Kahn, Inzalk Pearlman, and I think Harry Belafonte... I forget who else off-hand. Other guests who were on during this period include Gregory and Mauirce Hines (Michael Earl has said that he once performed Snuffy dancing with them, I'd like to see that clip included), Fred Rogers, the Star Wars droids, James Taylor (since "Jellyman Kelly" and "That Grouchy Face" have both been released I'd like to see "Up on the Roof" included, but since it wasn't written for the show or written by Taylor I hope it's not a problem securing the music rights), Richard Dawson, Diana Ross... Anyone else (I'm sure there is)? Did Sally Ride appear during this period or the next five-year period?

    Normally I don't really care about who's on the spine, but in this case I hope it's The Count, as a tribute to Jerry Nelson. My second choice would be Telly, since he became a main character during this time.

    I wish they'd put the disclaimer on it that was more honest.

    "We released this because classic Sesame Street fans wouldn't stop badgering us. This is not intended for near sighted grandmas to buy for their preschool aged grandchildren. Elmo's not mugging the camera every five minutes so we assume they'd be lost. Seriously. We release, like 5 Elmo videos a year. They HAVE theirs. This is for you."

    I was beginning to think Volume 3 would never appear. That is great news.

    I know there are some folks out there that have all of the Sesame Street episodes recorded in their collections so, does anyone have a list of what is on each of the episodes included in volume 3? Cuz see... there's one 'lil cartoon I've wanted a nice, clear copy of for like 4,000 or so years. :smirk:

    It could be inferred it's the next five season premieres (the plots of two are mentioned in the official statement).
  11. Foodie

    Foodie Active Member

    Ah, for some reason I thought they listed the episode numbers. Well, I'm open for spoilers should anyone find out whats on each episode before the set comes out. I just want my frog cartoon mostly. :smirk:

    To be more specific:

    Season 11

    Season 12

    Season 13

    Seasom 14

    Season 15 which will have YET another copy of that 2 Doll House segment.

    Deena and Pearl would have to be a Classic Cut if they're going to be on the DVD, as they're not in any of the episodes. i REALLY hope they are a classic cut. They've been lost forever. But it does seem some pretty rare stuff is on these sets already, including the episode where Richard Hunt plays an actual human character.

    Thats interesting that Richard plays some one I think that will be neat to see all in it's self.

    I still kinda wish they'd've swapped some of the first season openers for more iconic episodes. I'd rather have the death of Mr. Hooper in full than Gordon runs the marathon.
  15. minor muppetz

    minor muppetz Well-Known Member

    I wouldn't be surprised if the scene with Mr. Hooper's death were included as a bonus feature. The previous "Old School" releases seemed to have some non-inserts like the original "I Love Trash" and "I've Got Two" (well, they at least seem to be non-inserts). I'm surprised that episode was not released on iTunes, considering other season 15 episodes were.

    Somehow I have the feeling that this one won't have the second test pilot. I'd been hoping these would each include a test pilot until they ran out. But I'd rather have bonus segments.

    Surely this will be included. :insatiable:

    This may be cool because they may do a tribute to Jerry!

    Or something like "While these DVDs can be educational, they don't feature the character that brings in the money."

    Yeah. I mean, on the one hand, I don't see anything questionable or objectionable to the old school DVD's being watched by kids. But the fact of the matter is, this is for us. There's a LOT of 30 minute DVD's which somehow is all a child can tolerate on a DVD for some reason made specifically for them. While we would buy these before the internet had Youtube for rare sketches. The DVD's and VHS, that is. But those are meant for parents to shove in the DVD player/VCR to shut their kids up for a whole (completely worth the 10 dollar pricetag) half hour. They've been saying "heck with anyone over the age of 6" for years. Then they finally give us something we want.

    It's like the difference between the Looney Tunes Spotlight collection and the Looney Tunes Golden collection. Small amounts of PC classic cartoons for children, the rest of them for serious collectors. Nothing wrong with kids watching the Old School collection by any means, but it's something we begged for since the beginning of Muppet web boards.

    Which is fine, I just don't want them giving me some psychological hogwash about them being "dangerous." The whole thing was insulting to my intelligence and contributing to the degradation of our popular culture saying children should stay away from anything old.
