    Hey! :)
    OK...this is just a note to the few Danes in here..but I am so excited!
    The Muppet Show will be back on Danish TV after 13 years!!! Every Thursday at 5.40 pm. This will be a part of the daily "Gyldne Timer" (Golden Hours) on DR2, a program where they show lots of stuff from the archives from the 50´s till the 90´s. The first episode will be with Peter Sellers, so I don´t think they´ll show every episode, but it´s great just to see the show back on the air. Just to let the other Danes know...! :)

    That's wonderful news Hans. Do you think the episodes will be uncut with UK skits?

    I´m not sure about if they will be uncut or not...there are few skits I remember seeing as a kid, but most of them I´ve only seen many years after, when I started on my video collection. But according to the tv-guides, the shows will be 25 minutes, so I guess so!

    :excited: Thanks Hans thats just great news. :excited:
    I was actually thinking to write DR and asking them to use "Gyldne Timer" for that purpuse.
    But I guess that my mental powers are stronger than I knew

    Hey muppet_dk,
    I was just looking at DR2´s schedules over the next month, and Muppet Show will be on every Thursday at 17.40(5.40 pm), so we will at least see 4 episodes,(including Peter Sellers as mentioned before, Peter Ustinov & Raquel Welch) but hopefully many more!!!
    I really am happy that the show is finally back on Danish TV, but I already have all 120 episodes on video, and many of them twice. Fx I have the Peter Sellers in 4 different versions/editions (US Nick, Holland TV, HMV video & from Time Life dvd) but none from Danish TV...so it will be fun to get them with Danish subtitles this time!!!

    Nope its not with Dutch subtitles but with Danish subtitles :)

    One can only hope that they got all 120 episodes. I really hope that they will show some of the shows that haven't been released on either VHS or DVD yet.
    I also got the HMV set, but hope that my VCR will arrive later tonight in working condition so I can record the episode.

    Yes...I also hope that we´ll see some that hasn´t been released on vhs or dvd yet, but I doubt it! :boo:
    There are only 3 episodes I still not have complete uncutted, (Linda Lavin, Phyllis George & Jean-Pierre Rampal). All 3 episodes is missing the UK Skits, although I´ve seen the Linda Lavin UK Skit on henson.com :)
    So of course these 3 episodes will be on my "wish-list", but I doubt that DR2 will show any of these 3 episodes. I think it´s only the best of the best...the same as we all have on either vhs or dvd!
    But again...this is better than NOTHING!

    Just heard the presenter say that they will be showing all the episodes of TMS on DR2
  12. Animal

    Animal Well-Known Member

    Yes I heard that too! That´s just GREAT!!! :)
    Now it just seems weird that if they are showing all 120 eps, why start with Peter Sellers, instead of sending them in right order???
    I really hope that the presenter knows what she talked about... :concern:

    -Hans :halo: :halo: :halo:
  13. muppet_dk

    muppet_dk Well-Known Member

    Well my guess is that they have decided to send them in another order because they don't want to "scare" anbody off by starting with the more "boring" episodes.
    Or maybe they think they could lure more into seeing the show by showing the shows with guest stars that people know about. I don't think anybody in Denmark would know who Juliet Prowse are.
    And they have just finished showing the Pink Panther movies so that could be the reason the chosed to begin with Peter Sellers.

    Animal Well-Known Member

    Yeah...you might be right. I really hope so...!

    I just mailed DR2 and asked them if they really are going to send ALL 120 episodes or what! 120 episodes means that the show will be on the air for over 2 years!!!, with only one showing per week!!! :concern:

    Now let´s see what DR2 says! ;)

    OK, today I saw the TV-guide for next week for DR2, and next Thursday they´ll send the Twiggy episode of TMS. Last week it was Peter Sellers, today it´s Peter Ustinov, and in two weeks it´s Raquel Welch...! I have a feeling that they´re showing us the episodes previously released on the HMV box-set....! :boo:
    I really hope not....I want to see more of the non-released episodes!
    And I still haven´t got a reply from DR2 yet... :grouchy:

    You are right it does not look good, but lets hope for the best.

    Don't expect to get a reply from DR. A few years ago I tryed to get some answers to some questions, I'am still waiting for the reply

    Just want to let everyone know that we are getting 1st season opening.
  18. Animal

    Animal Well-Known Member

    Yeah...I was very surprised to see the original opening. GREAT!!!
    Now...THAT´S a good sign. That wasn´t on the HMV box-set, so let´s hope the other 1st season shows will be like this! :)

    Hi, you guys - the new guy here. :)

    Man, was yesterdays episode a treat. It was a real showcase for Frank, and boy was he good as ever. I loved the bit between him (as Fozzie) and Raquel Welch. Piggie is starting to look like her old self, although the snout will probably be retooled during later epsiodes, AFAIR.

    This was really a great episode - the guys have really started to get a good hold on the show, and the characters are really coming out like we know and love them.

    Next week, the Julie Andrews episode. Can't wait. :excited:

    I hate that announcer they've got for "Gyldne Timer" - but it was a special treat hearing her tell about the unveiling of the Jim & Kermit statue the day before. But she could have said something a bit more flattering than that stupid thing about Kermit and his "fnuggede venner" (linty friends)...

    Oh, well...

    Hey Fighbird, welcome onboard!!!

    Yes, the announcer for "Gyldne Timer" is terrible,("fnuggede venner"...where does she get this from??? :grouchy: ) but I think that it´s nice of her, telling a bit about the stars before the show. Almost all of them is forgotten now...well, in Denmark at least!

    What I don´t like about the whole thing is that they´ve only showed episodes previously released on the HMV-boxset! :boo:
    I want to see episodes NOT released on VHS or DVD!!! Although I have all 120 episodes on video, I would like to see them on Danish TV again, and with Danish subtitles!!!

    Also, yes the Julie Andrews episode is very GREAT!!! One of my favourites from the second season indeed!!!

    Again, welcome onboard. Nice to see another Dane in here!!!!
