    I actually just asked about this and The Christmas Toy.

    Not sure if anyone here will have the answers, but I wouldn't know where else to ask.

    Okay, No, I don't think it will come to dvd. Why? Well, this special is owned by Ed Sullivan not the muppets so they will have to release it but I doubt they ever will. :smirk:

    We got "Muppets Magic" and all of those segments are from Ed Sullivan.

    How crappy? Is it watchable?

    Like I said I do not trade that, why? Because it's on vhs and I do not re-record it for other people.

    Right, but how crappy is it? Is it watchable? I'm just wondering what kind of quality is circulating out there.

    The quality on these productions varies. If you're playing a VHS tape over and over to copy it, the quality degrades quickly. I bought a multi-format Panasonic DMR-ES10 DVD recorder so I could get all my Muppet productions that are stored on VHS archived to DVD. These rarities us guys trade vary from great quality to terrible quality. Sometimes a better quality version of something comes into circulation, for example I just aquired a mint version of Time Piece, which is also complete, it contains many scenes that are missing from the copy currently circulating. Some you have to sacrifice quality for quantity. Like Muppet Family Christmas. I have the original 1987 airing, complete with the TV commercials. The quality is a little rough, but you get the full un-cut version. It's not worth it to re-record VHS productions for people over and over, because then our tapes suffer. Now I can just transfer VHS to DVD and burn DVD copies, so making them is easy.
