Hello Everyone! It has been a really long time since I posted anything on this site, but I have decided to make a come back. Recently I was searching for one of the hardest to find Muppet specials out there, A Muppet Family Christmas. I have a tape version of it from 1988 television airing, but it is getting to where the tape is wearing out, so I decided to go hunting for a DVD version. I have a 2001 release of it on DVD, but as you all know, it is cut all to pieces due music rights. In my searching for it, I came across a DVD version that said it was an uncut release. I must admit I was skeptical so I decided to do some investigating. The website I found this DVD on was selling a DVD version of the special supposedly unedited. This means every scene was in tact from the special ( Fozzie and the Snowman, Miss Piggy and Kermit singing "have yourself a merry little Christmas", ect.) I decided to take a chance and order the DVD. When I got it I was very happy. All of the scenes were in tact and surprisingly, this DVD also had extras on it. The DVD itself plays on region one DVD players. It is a two disc set. The first disc includes the 1989 of the special along with the special feature, the christmas toy (unedited). The second disc was the whole special, basically the 1987 version with a few extras. These extras included an entertainment tonight spot featring Jim Henson and Kermit talking about the special, the commercial bumper, featuring kermit with fozzie in the background, and a video montage with music from John Denver and the Muppets Christmas special with scenes from muppet chrismtas productions from the past. The video on the first disc (the disc including the christmas toy on it) is a bit slower and plays more like a movie than a tv special. The second disc runs really well, but it is obvious that the scenes taken out of the special has been spliced back in with footage from an old video tape. I know this is not an offical release either. I know of all of the red tape that would have to be cut if the special was to ever get an offical unct release. But I love this special very much. It is probably one of my oldest memories of the muppets and how my love for them started, so I decide to be bad and buy it, and I believe it is well worth the money.
