Speculation: Any News on TMS Season 4's Release?

    I could see Gonzo on season 4. I'd like to see Scooter or Rowlf on Season Season 5 (Scooter more-so than Rowlf just to get a Richard Hunt character out there) but it'll probably be Animal.

    Wikipedia is almost never accurate, especially if the information can't be traced back to a credible source.

    Gonzo should be on the season 4 box and Scooter should be on the season 5 box. Of all the characters on The Muppet Show, I think Scooter would be considered the fifth main character (during season one, Scooter would have been fourth, and Gonzo fifth).

    And if they release the sets that way, that takes care of the top row of Muppet Central smilies.

    It'll likely be that the fifth box will have one of the smaller, but outrageously popular characters on it like Beaker or the Chef or Animal. Beaker would be a very cool cover, but I really hope it's not the Chef or Animal. Am I the only one who finds Animal's popularity as annoying as Elmo's? :halo: Not that I dislike Animal at all, he's hillarious when he's not placed in a lead role, as in Muppets From Space. It would be a poor choice to have him on one of the next two box covers.

    I'm with you Super Scooter. I don't dislike Animal at all either. I just like him better as part of the Electric Mayhem rather than a main character. :o

    EDIT: I'd LOVE to see Rizzo on the cover of Season 5, but I don't think that'd happen!

    I agree. Scooter needs to get his standing back, but it's unlikely. Rowlf's unlikely too due to it would mean a brown-colored box and that doesn't exactly translate into advertising gold.

    Gonzo's a must for one of the slots, but my choice for the final cover would be in this order: Scooter (unlikely), Sam with shifty eyes, Dr. Teeth (unlikely), Beaker (somewhat likely), Stalter and Waldorf, and maybe Animal (most likely).

    I like Animal, but he is a one (or two) note character that is overused in products. Non-fans just like Animal and Beaker for their simplicity. :eek: :halo:

    Sam with shifty eyes would be a great cover! I don't think I would have him in my top picks for the cover, but that would be very creative, and I would not be disapointed in a cover like that. I like the idea of Beaker. I was also thinking a new group shot would be fun, but might not work with the present style.

    A Statler and Waldorf cover might work. Maybe a close-up of half of Statler's face on one side and half of Waldorf's on the other with the Muppet Show logo in between? That might not fit very well, though. Dr. Teeth would be fun because you could use the fuzzy cover and have something different with his shiny tooth, the way Piggy had sparkling eyes.

    The best cover to me, though, would be a shot of Scooter's back with his head all the way at the top and turned to the side (so you know who it is). Then the Muppet Show logo would go right on the jacket.

    (by the way, Jamie, I still think your Fozze box cover was soooo much better than the real thing. the hat over his face was very clever)

    Awww, thanks. I like your Scooter idea and actually know that they have a nice high-res picture on file of Scooter's back. I wonder if they did do a shifty-eye Sam if it would be hologrammed? Maybe not the best idea, but holograms are the thing everyone's doing these days.

    I wouldn't be offended by a series set for the Muppet Show once all seasons are released. I wonder how that would be packaged. Lots of options there with stage, curtains arches, dressing rooms etc. I think a replica balcony would kick butt. However, I'm so ahead of the release schedule on that sort of speculation. :crazy:

    I'm going with Gonzo, and I don't have a very good reason other than so far, each season's went in the order of who's on each disc from the Season 1 dvd set. Kermit was on disc 1, Piggy on disc 2, Fozzie on disc 3...

    I hope that's the case. I really want to see more Muppet Show. Hopefully, one of the next sets will have of Muppets and Men. That was the best making of ever. No new thing can replace it. If Season 4 comes in May, I'll buy all four seasons.

    The characters I would like to see on the next two boxes (in no particular order) are Gonzo and Animal. :concern: :halo:

    who would that make the "obvious" pick then for season 5?
  11. Super Scooter

    Super Scooter New Member

    A plain, white cover.
  12. theprawncracker

    I, personally, think Miss Mousey should be on the cover of Season 5.

    Or Carol Burnette.
  13. Super Scooter

    Super Scooter New Member

    I heard a rumor that J.P. Grosse would be on the cover of both Seasons 4 and 5 (a profile shot and a photo from the rich executives swimsuit calendar), but I think that's still just a rumor.

    Now, Angus McGonagle, there's a cover!
  14. theprawncracker

    Please, Angus is a hack... gimme Fleet Scribbler over him any day of the week!
  15. Super Scooter

    Super Scooter New Member

    Ack! Are you kidding me? I originally wrote down Fleet Scribbler, but changed it to Angus at the last minute (slightly more obscure).

    I think Season 5 should have a chicken on the cover. Or maybe the complete series set could come in a binder that looks (and feels) like a chicken.

    ooh.. that'd be good.. just as long as it's the right size to sit next to our MR Gonzo... hehe

    As long as it isn't in a plain brown wrapper... :shifty:

    And suddenly the plain white cover doesn't sound so bad! :super:

    I imagine though once the entire 5 seasons are released at once.. like they always do.. it should look a little like a piece of the theater or maybe Kermit's little desk ... something memorable from the show. Granted, I have all three seasons and I'm going to kick myself after I buy them all and they release them all together... Fraggle Rock though really screwed us on account they released the final season within the complete packaging...

    I would not be surprised if Season 4 will be released in Spring or Summer. ;)

    And I believe that :concern: will make the cover for Season 4. I also can't wait to hear about Bonus Features! I hope more Interviews and more Archive Footage will be on this DVD set!

    I thought it might have been Animal then Gonzo or Waldolf & Statler for season 5
