    Welcome to the Disney era. Wonder how long before the entire thing is mysteriously cancelled like all of the projects from last year?

    I'm pretty sure the Muppet Show First Season was a big seller, so I doubt they would cancel something they can make money off of. My guess is they're having difficulty securing the rights to some of the songs, and after the complaints they recieved on Season 1, they want to make every attempt to get all the songs secured.

    Hopefully it's only delayed.

    Season 2 Planned for Summer

    Read more here: http://muppetnewsflash.blogspot.com/2006/02/muppet-show-season-2-expected-on-dvd.html

    The second season was originally planned for February release. However it was delayed. I talked with Disney and was assured that the delay was not based upon season 1's sales, which Disney cited as "terrific", nor was it due to lack of company support or planning. The production of this set is simply taking longer than expected - due to the enormous amount of legal clearances needed, and all the time needed on restoration and supplemental features (something most Disney TV show sets require much of). The Muppet Show is simply taking more than most of Buena Vista's TV shows on DVDs; and rather than rush it or cut corners, Disney wants to keep the quality of these highly anticipated sets up to the fans' desires and expectations.

    I was told that, as of now, the second season is expected for release, hopefully, this summer. And that they plan on releasing all five seasons (it just may take 12-months to prepare a set, rather then the originally expected 6-months). It is coming and they are taking the time to do it right (rather than cut a bunch of musical numbers and have lacking bonus features). Buena Vista Home Entertainment is not able to give a final list of any features of specifications – those things just aren’t final yet. But if everything goes as planned, we should see an official announcement later this spring (March/April-ish).

    While it would be nice to be so optimistic, I'm not going to believe Disney's press releases until I (hopefully) have the set in hand. After a lot of big promises, they've delivered on very little in regards to the Muppet brand.
    Now that the big Muppet supporters are gone from the company, all signs point to a slow fade out before the Muppets get buried.

    I'm going to choose to believe the press release. I've seen Muppet WOZ sit on the shelves, gathering dusk... but TMS S1 flies off the shelves (allong with TMM and GMC). As much as I doubt Disney will make good on half of the promises, I still think they will release this. Disney is already announcing plans to release Darkwing Duck and The Tick (you see, they own the animated series because of the buyout of Fox Family), so they must have to make good.

    I hope the delays mean no edits to the episodes due to greedy old guys who own the copywrites to songs just for the sake of owning them, like last time.

    Besides... I don't mind waiting. I'm rediculously behind everything in DVD's... Don't even had 80's TMNT Vol 2 yet... or even Fraggle Rock... Or ALF. I'm really behind on ones I'd sell a kidney for.

    Well, I hope it still comes out, not just something that just keeps getting delayed until they finally decide not to. I'm already lookin foward to seeing Season 3 cuz I've seen most of Season 2.

    I'm also hoping it's just cause they are trying to get the music rights and stuff. Personally I would love perhaps on the last season, for them to include the "Tribute to Jim Henson" whatever it's called. That would be a great 'capper' to the whole series, you know?
  10. Id rather them take a little longer on the release then them to release it bareboned, unrestored, lots of edits etc.
  11. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the episodes will be complete, since season one met expectations.

    Thanks Greg for keeping us informed as ever! I am dissapointed to hear that they will be longer coming out, and yet glad that they are putting attention into it!

    Personally, I can hardly wait! I have hardly seen any of the Second Season episodes, so it really will be fantastic to see classics like the time the muppets are replaced with pigs.

  14. ReneeLouvier

    ReneeLouvier Well-Known Member

    Replaced with Pigs? Wow. Which ep was that? And was Scooter ever replaced? Cause I barely remember this, as Fozzie and Kermit was replaced, that was SO funny!
  15. MartyMuppets

    MartyMuppets Well-Known Member

    That was the last episode of season two Sara. I can't remember who the guest star was but she was a woman and the pigs decided to take over the show themselves. You can check it out of course in the guides you've printed out for yourself.
  16. Beauregard

    Beauregard Well-Known Member

    Yeah, the guides on MC have it listed. It's a particularly funny episode judging from the guide.

    Guest star: You will never convince me that you are Kermit.
    Green pig: Ribbet.
    Guest star: Oh kermit! It's you!

    Yeah. I'm guessing you're referring to the Cloris Leechman episode. Timelife never released that one, so for info on that one I just had to rely on "The Muppet Show" book and the guide here. It would be good to see that ep in it's entirety.

    I was also interested in hearing that they might release "Muppets Tonight" after the release of the fifth season. That would be cool since I missed a lot of eps of that series. But if that did happen, it would probably be a long way off. *sigh*

    Well, I'd like to see that Valentine Special, and maybe some archived behind-the-scenes footage. I like the 90% correct Muppet morsels, too.

    Hey Mayhem, Where ya been??

    Since the first season had the pilot episode i think the other season collections should include the following-
    -the muppet valentine special
    -the great santa clause switch(the first apperance of gonzo)
    -the jim henson tribute
    -the frog prince
