    But what about the restoring that is to be done on the films? That's reason enough to buy them.

    I already have MCC & MTI so I won't be rebuying them, no matter how better the special editions are. I'll be glad to buy TMM & The Muppet Caper though. :) Why was everyone talking about the widescreen/fullscreen stuff in this thread when their is a whole other thread for it? :eek:

    Note that since February 2001 the BBFC has measured each component separately, but older works may not have the exact details, only a list of titles.

    British Board of Film Classification has passed the "special features" material for "TMM" & "TGMC" :

    • MISS PIGGY: THE DIVA WHO WOULD NOT BE DENIED Run Time 5m 39s
    • KERMIT: A FROG'S LIFE Run Time 6m 32s

    I'm not going to bother to buy these, I'm sticking with R1 CTHE DVDs

    Also BBFC passed "TMM" film it's self and unfortunately it will be the cut version (same print as it's pervious release from CTHE) :(

    Hmm. Still dissapointed in the lack of special features. I don't own the old version of TMM, GMC, or MCC, so I'll be missing out on the old stuff, and dissapointed that all we will get for new stuff is basically filler.
    I was kind of hoping for the tv specials that were made for the movie releases that I've read about. if I'm correct it's The muppets go to the Movies and The Muppets go Hollywood. How cool would it be to see those? :/

    Of course, I will still be buying them, as I want to see these movies again (and GMC for the first time!) since that's why I will be buying them: for the films. Plus widescreen TMI will make me gleeful. Hope the old commentary will be on it, but I don't know for sure, maybe someone else does.

    I am excited about these new realeases. The only thing I dont like is that it feels like more time could have been taken with the bonus materials. I will be buying them no mattter what though as I am a true Muppet Fan.

    The Muppet Movie back cover

    I just want to know what the back cover of the Kermit 50th anniversary edition of The Muppet Movie will look like, I get the front cover but what does the back cover look like? I predicted that the back cover looked like it had pictures of Kermit playing the banjo, Kermit and Fozzie looking at the map and below the crowd of Muppets.
