    ^ Those dark hallways STILL make me nervous XD And when I was a kid I decided to someday have a family room that looked just like that. Still hasn't happened yet ;)

    Because of this special, "Old Friends, New Friends" is one of my all-time favorite songs. And it's just not Christmas if I don't hear "Celebrate The Season With Kraft" (among the other commercials that escape me at the moment) during commercial breaks.

    The "Jim Henson's Christmas Classics" banner is interesting. I wonder what else they might release under that series.

    Aren't all other Christmas specials with the Muppets?

    Unedited in the UK

    You can find a multi region dvd player for about 40 dollars these days. If you have one you can own the unedited version. Both "Muppet Family Christmas" and "Christmas Toy" were released on one disc a few years back, and they are both unedited. Unfortunately the dvd is out of print, and will cost you more than the dvd player on Amazon.co.uk.

    There's still Mr. Willowby's Christmas Tree and The Great Santa Claus Switch .. though I think the Ed Sullivan people own The Great Santa Claus Switch

    Santa Claus Switch would make a wonderful DVD release as many fans haven't seen it and most of the copies floating around are of fair to poor quality.

    I was going to email HIT! and ask them if the DVD was going to be edited, but it appears only members of the press are allowed to email them now. I have emailed them before, so it appears they no longer wish to deal with the general public. Is there any way someone from Muppet Central could ask HIT! this very simple question?

    Yeah, the copy I have is kind of glitchy and has a few hiccups every once in a while, but I still enjoy watching it.:)Maybe we should contact Ed Sullivan Productions or JHC and say something. But anyway, I am dying to see if Kermit will be added to "The Christmas Toy" DVD release. Can't wait to get results.:excited:

    Aw, lol. Yeah the house was pretty classic and those kids had a pretty well stocked playing room, heh. Almost seemed wrong for them to keep getting more toys every year! :p

    Oh definitely, never get tired of it, it's such a reminder of a simpler time in life :)

    I'm excited to hear about this one being released! My mom bought the VHS years ago, but I was the only one of the "kids" who really liked it. :) Now, if only we could get a reasonably priced, unedited version of "Muppet Family Christmas" in the US, I'd be happy.

    I really hope this version is NOT edited like Muppet Family Christmas. :mad: I have fond memories of The Christmas Toy in 1986. It was the last Christmas with my mom before she lost her battle with cancer. :cry: This special gave me comfort in an otherwise terrible time. What a great special it was. "PEW IT'S MEW!":)

    That would be a great DVD release for many reasons.

    1. It was The Muppets first Christmas Special.

    2. Gonzo makes his debut before he became The Great Gonzo. :concern:

    3. It features The Frackles.

    4. It's a great Christmas Special.

    5. It would be a treasured DVD for the true Muppet Fan! :)

    Steve Whitmire talks about the DVD release of The Christmas Toy! He didn't get to do any bonus features, but he had some great things to say:
