    I've heard various stories about the original prints for the first two Muppet Movies having different audio bits in a few scenes. For instance, in the original print for TGMC, after Kermit finds out that Piggy isn't Lady Holliday, and Piggy is seen walking off into the dark, there's a sound effect of some church bells in the background. Current prints replace this with sounds of a cat. You can just barely hear part of the original audio at the beginning of this clip.

    Here's something interesting I found: Opening previews that appear on the UK release of Gonzo Presents Muppet Weird Stuff.



    What I find interesting is that it has individual promos for two of the Muppet Video releases (The Kermit and Piggy Story and Muppet Moments) but not the others (that were released in the UK), while the openings to Fraggle Rock and Muppet Babies are included, but not clips from the episodes on VHS (in fact Jim Henson Video later put out a Fraggle Rock promo that was merely the opening, with an announcer talking at the very beginning).

    It's also interesting how the promos for the compilations don't have an announcer. We just see a few random clips. No guest star clips, either. It's almost like the promos for Sesame Street videos that Sesame Workshop posts on YouTube. Some of the clips and editing is odd; For The Kermit and Piggy Story, we get a clip where somebody asks Miss Piggy if she works there leading to her karate chopping him, due to her just being fired, but not any clips where the firing is obvious. It'd be confusing to those who haven't seen all the backstage scenes. And for Muppet Moments, we get a second of the linking footage that leads to Sax and Violence. Odd editing!

    Here's footage of Jim Henson performing Scred as he was training people for The Dark Crystal.

    Wow! That video was awesome! The Scred character was given to Jerry Nelson and we have heard that that was his favorite character of SNL in the early days of Jim's team. Thank you for sharing, minor muppetz!

    I'm not sure if this one's been posted already, and it's a bit old, but I still get a laugh out of this. One of my favorite misheard lyrics videos.

    Robin and Kermit? Oh minor muppetz! How can I say this, "Yes, I can be a Muppet fan and love my favorite Muppet characters. Yes I can be weird and... oh what the hey? There's is no reason to say, "No!" or "can't."

    Wow! I miss the good old 1990s with videotapes with Muppets and cute books.

    I didn't know that Traveling Matt once hosted NBC saturday morning programming

    It's a shame this wasn't a bonus feature on the Animated Fraggle Rock DVDs (or does NBC own these clips?). They don't show clips from the shows being mentioned, so there wouldn't be copyright problems there.

    Previously every episode of The Jim Henson Hour had been posted (though the uploader had to take down Song of the Cloud Forest and Dog City), but now it seems they are no longer online. The user who uploaded them still has his account, so I wonder what's going on. InnerTube and the pitch tape are both still online, though.

    Also, a number of songs from the show have been uploaded on their own, but the music plays over still images. There are also a few full clips online, most of which were online before the full episodes were.

    Quickly, everyone save The Jim Henson Hour pitch tape and Innertube onto your files before they get taken down as well! :eek:
