    I agree that Of Muppets and Men should be included on the fifth season set. If the original pilot versions of the first two epsiodes do get released in the season sets, I think it would be best to spread them out, maybe one in season two and the other in season three, or later.

    Back when the episode first aired there was a 19-month gap between the airing of the first season's finale (episode 124) the second seasons finale (episode 224).

    It took 345 months from conclusion of Season 1 to the release of the complete first season appeared on DVD.

    If season 2 was released today (which I know it isn't) it would only be a 342 month gap from the conclusion of season 2 and its DVD debut. So to be fair, it wouldn't be until after February 2007 that the release gap from season 1 to season 2 would be a disproportional spacing. So having it come out in spring (March/April 2007) is a reasonable release (only about a month or two longer than audiences in 1978 had to wait after watching season one to see the complete second season).

    Ummm...maybe because TMS is only part of Disney's back catalogue and they don't want to saturate the DVD market with just TMS and nothing else.

    I had a good laugh over that post. Well done.

    Nicely said. I was thinking the same thing and didn't have the patience to research it. :p

    Having the original pilot and pitch film was good ...but I agree that Season 1 could've had more features. Here's an idea for Season 2, how about a blooper reel?

    I think they'd should put all of the Muppetisms on one season. I'd really like to see trailers for the Muppet movies. Also I think they should release the Muppet specials (not necessarily as extras, but just on DVD). Why was the Muppet Baby scene in "Muppet Family Christmas" cut out of the DVD release?

    The Juliet Prowse and Connie Stevens episodes were already on the Season One set. Both were considered pilots. The First season also included The Sex and Violence pilot, and it was originally planned that the second season would contain the Valentine Special pilot. Once that's out, all of The Muppet Show pilots will have been released.

    When myself and others say the "original Juliet Prowse and Connie Stevens Pilots", we are referring to the original edits of those episodes, as opposed to the broadcast versions. Check the TMS episode guide on this site if you're still confused as to what we're referring to.

    And where did you get your info about the Valentines special being on the Season Two set? That's the first I've ever heard.

    Do any exist? Off-hand I know of two bloopers - one from a trailer where Fozzie's mouth gets stuck and the other from the Raquel Welch episode where Fozzie calls Scooter "Kermit" - and both have already been shown as part of the It'll Be Alright on the Night series.

    It couldn't be cleared for the R1 release, but I understand that it could be cleared for the R2 release.

    If any bloopers do indeed exist, I'd love to see them.

    I didn't say it was official news. That was the plan way back when Season 1 was released.

    "If you continue to look at the list of features fans will notice the item of “original pilot”. As many Muppet fans will tell you, there were two pilot episodes produced for The Muppet Show (“The Muppets Valentine Show” and “The Muppet Show: Sex and Violence”). Members of the DVD production team have said that they hope to include both pilots on the set, but depending on the disc space available they may only be able to fit one (exactly which one is unclear right now). If both pilots don’t make the cut for the season one set, the unreleased pilot may be included on the season 2 set. Fans will have to wait for Disney to release more information to know for sure if both pilots made the cut – but at least one pilot episode will be included (and maybe more)."

    You can read the whole article here: http://www.muppetcentral.com/news/2005/060105.shtml

    And, thank you for correcting me on the other matter. I was wrong, and I admit it. I just didn't realize it was such a big point.

    Well, the unreleased pilot may be included on the season 2 set but the unreleased pilot may not be included in the season 2 set. Nothing is set in stone. Really we just have to wait for the official announcement before we assume anything because the DVD producers like to keep us on our toes (especially after 16+ months, who knows what plans have changed). So don't assume this or that will, or will not, be this way or that way.

    But I hear that the official announcement of the set should be here soon, or should I say soon-ish…whoops I've said too much :o

    Sorry. I should reword that. That was "a thought" way back when Season 1 was released.

    Well whatever features are on it, I'm pretty excited.

    ...although admittedly I did just buy the first season yesterday. Don't pelt me.

    I've seen parts of season two. And if the guest star list is any judge, it should be full of wonderfulness!

    psst! say more! You know you want to......

    Right! I promise nobody but us and the hundreds/thousands of other people who browse this forum will ever know!

    I hope that these numbers could be cut from these Season 2 episodes, perhaps due to music rights to the songs:

    Don Knotts:

    Song: "Sweet Gingerbread Man"

    Nancy Walker:

    Song: "They Can't Take That Away From Me"

    George Burns:

    Song: "Chattanooga Choo Choo"

    Julie Andrews:

    Song: "Won't Someone Dance With Me"

    SIGH! You really do hope! that these songs could be cut do you TSF?:rolleyes:

    Well I'm sure I speak for 99% of the rest of us that we hope there will be no cuts at all.

    Why would you want cuts to be made to the Muppet Show DVDs?:confused:

    Jerry Nelson even told me once by PM that he was upset by every cut made to Jim's series on the season one set and I told him that back when the television stations in Australia started cutting backstage scenes, some skits etc. on the re-runs I always felt even that was an inexcusable shame.:(

    I certainly will be disappointed if cuts are made on Season 2 but I'll still gladly take the set. Better than nothing.

    i HOPE season 2 is out by Valentines Day (Feb 14) as (i hope anyways...) that The Muppets Valentine Show is on this set and thats "early 2007" still isnt it?
