The International Muppet Trade Group - Membership Sign Up

Discussion in 'Buy, Sell and Trade' started by Cantus Rock, May 29, 2003.

    I've come to find that, though many people come on asking for episodes of shows, there are only a few Muppet fans on the board who can honestly call themselves video trading fanatics. I have also found that that select few is not in very good contact, as I can only name one person from the board that I know of, which would be my very good friend G-Man (Boober Gorg). So, I propose a sort of guild, where the people who have material to trade and are willing to do so can tighten the knitting of the community, and thus do more trading (eventually leading to happiness for all).

    So, those who are definite traders, who are willing to trade freely and spread the Muppet love without being overbearing, please post here. I don't know exactly how I think the ultimate group should be worked, but when we get all the members together we can figure out those details.

    (Also, please people; don't muffin this thread. I want to keep an accurate tab on who wishes to join the group, and fluff posts will not be helpful in that task. Thanks.)

    Terrific Idea Matt. I'll be posting the new stuff I recently got later. My page will no longer be updated, due to issues with Trellix.

    Thanks for the sentiments, Matt. I appreciate it. :)

    My ability to trade tapes depends on the amount of free time I have, which is usually determined by the number of classes I'm taking. But to get the general idea of what I'm hunting for, here are some things I could use:

    Sesame Street Unpaved #2096 (a replacement for my current copy)
    Sesame Street Unpaved #2293
    Sesame Street episodes taped from PBS ... before 1994
    Little Muppet Monsters episodes
    Sam and Friends episodes
    1950s and 1960s Muppet commercials
    Rowlf on the Jimmy Dean Show (full episodes, or just clips – whatever exists)
    Youth '68
    The Cube
    Travelling Matt presenting Children's ITV
    any TV appearances with Fraggle Rock characters (i.e., Cotterpin Doozer on the Today Show)
    Mopatop's Shop episodes
    Hoobs episodes
    Fraggle Rock HBO preview interstitial(s) that aired before the show itself debuted (see Phillip's first post in said thread)
    any of Jim's appearances on British TV

    Ry - Jeeze, I can't believe I forgot to site you as a trader I know (check the time I posted to figure out why, lol). And yeah, another good thing this group will do is enable us to get our lists out in the open, as not everyone has an established online trade list.

    G-Man - Not at all good buddy. I'll still never forget the lovely card I received on my birthday from ya. :) Do me a favor and hold off on any massive lists in this thread though, as I just want to get a feel for the people who wish to be part of the group. When everything is established, lists will be a'flyin'. :D

    Could you include what you might consider casual traders?
  6. Cantus Rock

    Cantus Rock New Member

    Well, I suppose casual traders could be included, but on the condition that you must be willing to trade at some point. I don't see any point in having people in the group that are just going to be bystanders, especially if they claim to have material that others want. (Not saying you Scoot, I'm just speaking in general).

  7. Super Scooter

    Super Scooter New Member

    I meant it something like that.

    I consider myself a Casual Trader because, while I do enjoy trading, I can't always do it for various reasons (as many of you do as well). I've actually had only one completed trade so far, and several in the works. Just gotta those finished...:o

    I meant Casual Traders in the sense that they do trade ocassionally, though maybe not as consistantly as some here.

    Hi Cactus Rock

    I think your idea is a very good one and would be happy to be included. I am virtually trading non-stop. I have a lot of stuff to offer and am currently looking for stuff too. I think we have traded in the past.

    Speak soon
  9. Boober_Gorg

    Boober_Gorg Active Member

    Oh, sure. At least I didn't post my ENTIRE inventory! ;):eek:
  10. Super Scooter

    Super Scooter New Member

    That would be some post! :)
  11. Cantus Rock

    Cantus Rock New Member

    LoL! I think if we all posted out full inventories, we'd have the longest post on the site (length-wise, anyway).

    Danny - Glad you could jump on. I think I kind of left you hanging in a deal we had, and I can assure you that come summer I will be better apt to complete trades. Though, it is CANTUS Rock. The last person to call me "Cactus," well....he's not around as much as he used to be. ;)

    Super Scoot-

    I'm interested in Foam Wrecker! and The Antler Dance. Can you explain the second? Also, do you have the end credits where Don Pardo says: "The Muppets are Frank Oz, Jerry Nelson, Fran Brill, Richard Hunt, Alice Tweety, and Jim Henson"? Email me and we can talk about it. :excited:

    In case anyone else is curious, the Antler Dance is about a minute long and took place during the end credits of the last episode featureing the Muppets. Lilly Tomlin calls for everyone to "do the antler dance", and the Ploobis and Scred end up joining in.

    Well, we wait another couple of days to see if anyone else wishes to join, and then...well, then I get a bright idea of sorts (though I mean, we do only have 6 members right now...I'd like to fill out the circle a little better..).
