    To have 5 fully loaded unedited box sets of The Muppet Show and 1 fully loaded unedited box set of Muppets Tonight on my shelf is the dream we have. If every 4 months they put another one out starting next fall (2005) all 6 of these sets could be out by fall '07. That's not too bad. They could start earlier and go faster, I don't know how far they are into compleation, and how much resources they are pumping into these, and how important they are to them to get out quickly.

    All New Campaign Website Launches


    Attention all Muppet Fans, Campaign Supporters, or any one else interested:

    The campaign group to get The Muppet Show and Muppets Tonight has a brand new, state of the art, website. The "Get Muppet TV on DVD" movement has a new website with a new design, new features, and more. It will be updated as developments on Muppet TV Show DVDs are released on DVD and will continue to support the voice of fans. We are currently focusing on the two live-action Muppet TV shows. But may expand to other Muppet and Henson shows in the future. The new site launched today, and more updates and features will follow in the coming weeks. Enjoy, get envolved, and let your voice be heard!

    Yes, the biggest challenge is behind us, but it is not over. The "get Muppet TV on dvd" campaign site will continue to cover the development of the season sets, bringing you all the information on release details and product features until all 5 seasons of the Muppet Show are out. We also will continue to push for a Muppets Tonight release to complement the Muppet Show's. And we will encurage all to voice their opinions on the extras and format they want to see. Request the 2 pilot episodes are encluded; request the original openings; request the UK skits; request behind the scenes documentaries; request whatever you want! These are our sets; we are the fans, we are the customers, let our voice be heard. Even though season 1 is in the works, it is still a ways off (and season 5 is even further). We can impact what we get and how the series is handled. We will continue to support the fans voice. Once we feel the fans voice has been heard (lound and clear) we may move to other Henson/Muppet tv shows (Muppet Babies, Secret Life of Toys, Dinosaurs, and the list goes on), but we want to make sure these sets are going straight and also lets get Muppets Tonight on their "to do" list sooner rather than later. The campaign has slowed (the 3-stages were dropped to not bombard them with demands), but it is not over. Will will also cover the news and information on the sets on our site as well once we get closer to the release time and more details surface.

    The "Get Muppet TV on DVD" movement is still working hard to get the studios to release best DVDs possible for The Muppet Show and Muppets Tonight. In the future we plan to expand to new Henson/Muppet shows once we have sucess in the directions we are working now.

    The campaign site launched a new poll section today, trying to learn which show(s) people would like to see the campagin go after next. This would probally not be until early next year, but to get we want to get an idea of which way to go next.

    Please surf over and vote. This will let us know where we should go next so we can start developing the next campagin, talking with the proper companies/people, and collection infromation to help aid the you and the other campaigners.

    Thanks for the support of the campaign so far (it looks like the Muppet Show is a go, and hopeful our thoughts on Muppets Tonight will be heard too).

    Ok. I am convinced. I'm going to put "Letter to Mup. Holding Co." on my to-do list for tommorow.

    Cool site. Just one question...what about the Muppet Central portions of the Jim Henson Hour?

    It seems like that should be an option in the poll. Even if it wasn't as good as TMS.
  10. GelflingWaldo

    GelflingWaldo Well-Known Member

    We agree too. I just added The Jim Henson Hour ("Muppet Central" Segments) to the poll. We didn't want to have every Henson show ever on there but at a second look we agree that The JHH was overlooked by our staff. It is now up and avalible to vote for. Thanks for the feedback.

    Ok. My letter is now in an envelope and in the out tray by the door to be posted.

    I haven't read the whole thread so forgive me if someone already brought this up, but Disney has announced full-season sets of the Muppet Show on DVD so isn't a letter writing campaign kind of moot at this point? There will likely be lots of extras; they recently taped interviews with Jerry Juhl and Craig Shemin in New York and are presumably going to do more. They seem to be genuinely interested in doing this right.

    The campagin started long before the word that Disney is working on sets of The Muppet Show.

    So, it seems like our word has been received on the "Muppet Show" front. But you still have a chance to give input on the sets; although work has begun on a season 1 set, your letters can still effect the final products. It will take time to get all 5 seasons out so you still have time to get your feelings to the Muppet Holding Company on their content and format. Still feel free to send letters asking for specific features you would want to see and express your interest in the sets.

    If they continue to get letters on the issue they will be more likely to share information to the public in order to get the word out. More letters will also make them feel more confident the sets will be success and they will invest more into them, and they may release them faster and closer together. We are still working to have the fans voice heard and also continue to express the desire for "Muppets Tonight" on DVD too.

    Once an official statment from Disney is released (more than just reports from people on who was interviewed and for what) we will most likely start working on campaigning for another Henson/Muppet show (please vote in our poll to help us figure out where to go next). We would like to have an official word that they are coming before moving on; if the rumors are ture we should expect to hear something early next year (hopefully). But right now we want Disney to know we really do want The Muppet Show and Muppets Tonights on DVD and we want them now. The campaign group is a collection of people who want all the great Henson/Muppet tv shows on DVD, we are just working on 1-2 shows at a time to help concentrate the fans desires and really reach the studios in a powerful way to make our dreams a reality.
