    Yeah, can't believe I made the same basic mistake twice in one post (referring to episodes 1079 and 1082 with "19" as the first two digits).

    I've been thinking about that group shot of characters introduced in season 12 (Elmo, Telly, Dr. Nobel Price, Countess and her dog, Honkers, Warren Wolf, Deena and Pearl), and I've been thinking that'd be a good picture to include in either the inside cover images, booklet, or menus (or maybe on the back packaging, but only if all those characters actually appear in the DVDs themselves... The booklet and menus on the other sets did include pictures of characters not on those sets but those aren't outside packaging images).

    Has there been any official confirmation on whether this set will have two or three discs? I'd expect three, but you never know. Three-disc sets don't seem as common as they used to be.

    Hi again,
    Okay, so I checked out the Sesame Street episodes for Old School vol. 3 on Muppet Wiki and, it gave a list of all the stuff that's in each episode. Does anyone know if the entries there are thorough? :smirk:

    Do you mean the episodes and their segments themselves or what's going to be on the DVD?
  4. Foodie

    I guess I meant the segments on each episode included on the DVD set. :smirk:

    Well, the guides on MW are from the Noggin airings, so the only thing that's off about them is the segments cut from Noggin's airings; the episodes should be uncut on this DVD.

    Yeah! Like the Old School Vols. 1 and 2 DVD sets.

    The only thing I would expect to be cut would be a rendition of "Happy Birthday" from the Puerto Rico trip, but somebody a few posts back said it shouldn't be a problem because it's not sung in english.

    And there have been scenes cut that have been a mystery as to why. I can't figure out why "Dialing for Prizes" was cut from episode 666, or why Big Bird and Crystal playing store was cut from episode 536 (I assumed it was because of the kid, but then she also appeared in other scenes in that same episode and they weren't cut).

    I think the Dialing for Prizes segment was cut because of the celebrity pictures on Guy's wall; maybe they had to pay for their likenesses.

    I would have figured it was for the actual film footage used, unless that is public domain. I never thought of the celebrity pictures being an issue.

    It was cheaper than blurring them out?
  11. Oscarfan

    Oscarfan Well-Known Member

    I thought that was just stock footage that was public domain.
  12. minor muppetz

    minor muppetz Well-Known Member

    I thought I read that it was from a traffic film that appeared on the show (one that actually appeared in episode 131 without being removed from the DVD).
  13. Foodie

    Hmmm... there wouldn't happen to be somewhere on line that would have the non-Noggin version episode listings would there? :smirk:

    Not until November 6 (unless somebody here or at toughpigs happens to get a copy early).
  15. Foodie

    Foodie Active Member

    I think I'll wait for the Tough Pigs this time around. :smirk:

    I want those too. :smirk:

    Man, you Sesame Street fans are lucky! Hardly ANY Barney content from before 1999 (And for the most part, 2002) is even on DVD. Meanwhile, you guys get whole sets of classic material... :(
  19. Oscarfan

    Oscarfan Well-Known Member

    Well, let's look at it like this: Sesame Street's been on much longer and has a much larger fan base. There's a lot more nostalgic content to be mined from it.

    There's just a bigger market for classic Sesame than classic Barney.

    Naturally - I understand that.

    But I don't understand why they can't release older videos as regular Barney DVDs. I'm not asking for season sets or anything, I just don't want to have to rely on VHS tapes so much.

    And just for the record, next year is Barney's 25th year in buisness - That's not to be ignored. :laugh:
