    Are you positive it's uncut? Are all of these scenes there?

    The snowman musical and comedy number with Fozzie is completely gone. They sing "Sleigh Ride" in the original version. Rowlf begins the song by playing "Sleigh Ride" on Emily Bear's out-of-tune piano. Rowlf says he "loves out-of-tune pianos" while Sprocket watches him play. Fozzie, the Snowman, and penguins sing outside. This is a very abrupt and obvious edit.

    The Muppet Babies film "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" is removed. The film begins and Animal immediately bursts through the screen. Included in the broadcast version of the film are the baby versions of Piggy, Kermit, Fozzie, Rowlf, Scooter, Fozzie, and Gonzo. This is another clear edit that something is missing. Doc comments that the film was fun when there was nothing for him to see other than a one second shot of Baby Piggy and Animal immediately bursting through the screen!

    Miss Piggy and the Muppets singing "Home for the Holidays" is not shown when she arrives at the farmhouse. Miss Piggy falling on the icy patch is also removed. When Kermit mentions that Miss Piggy always likes to make an entrance, the video release cuts immediately to the beginning of the Carol Sing Medley.

    "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" and "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day" are edited out during the Carol Sing Medley.

    Emily Bear hangs Fozzie's stocking underneath the fire. Fozzie mentions that he's a grown bear alluding to the fact he doesn't need it anymore. When Emily reaches to take it down, Fozzie decides it's ok to leave it up. This entire scene is removed. This occurs right before Kermit gives Miss Piggy a mink for Christmas.

    I'm sorry if I seem to be too picky, but I have been looking for the original for years. I AM DEFINITELY INTERESTED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  2. I have a fan-made uncut version.

    Muppet Family Christmas

    I am a long time reader of this forum, but this is my first post.

    I know from reading this site that this is a very popular request, and if there is an official thread for movie requests, please direct me to it.

    If there isn't, I would like to ask someone to help me who has an original, uncut version of this classic. I'm afraid I do not have that much to offer in trade, for all the things I have are not rare, and are most likely owned by everybody. I would pay for the tape, dvd, or cd for the copy, as well as all the postage. I hope someone can help me out, and I also hope that I am doing this right, and not breaching some sort of forum rule.

    I thank you for your time, and I hope everyone has a great holiday season!

    Muppet Family Christmas

    Hey guys, I tried last year to no avail, but this year it has a bit more meaning. Now that my Niece is old enough to really get into the Muppets, I was telling her about how Muppet Family Christmas was one of my favorite christmas movies. I see her really liking it a lot and want to share it with her. I'd rather not buy the edited VHS/DVD version though. Does anyone have a copy for trade? You can email me at jamweinh@uat.edu. Thanks a lot, I'll be checking the boards.

    A Muppet Family Christmas

    I have been trying for years to find the original version of A Muppet Family Christmas (as opposed to the edited version that was later released) as my recorded version no longer plays. If anyone knows where I can get my hands on the original...please let me know.

    I have the original complete with commercials by Osh Kosh B'Gosh, but I am unable to make copies. Last year I made copies for several members, it got a little out of hand with all the requests, but they may be able to make copies for you. Unfortunately, I don't remember everyone I made copies for, but even if I did, I wouldn't just give their names out, it's up to them if they want to come to you. So I guess what I'm saying is; people here do have it, but I don't know if they have the opportunities to copy it.

    Not much luck there, unless someone is willing to make a DVD for you. Due to copyright issues with some of the songs used in the special Muppet Family Christmas was never released uncut on any video or DVD format. The only way to see the special uncut would be to have someone play it on a syndicated network, since the special can be aired uncut for the rest of its known existence. There is a whole site dedicated to the cuts: http://www.geocities.com/muppetchristmas/mfccuts.html

    Hope that helps!

    man... that's a total shame that they don't have the whole thing.. from reading parts of that, it sounds like you miss a LOT that way.

    muppets family christmas

    That's my daugthers favorite muppets movie. If you haven't got one, I just put the vhs copy on DVD. just a few seconds are missing frome the pickup tuck scene in the very begining. Other than that it's all there commericals and all. The quality is pretty good. We bought the DVD and it's all hack up with my daughters favorites scenes edited out. So let me know.

    Request for Unedited A Muppet Family Christmas

    I've looked around on Ebay and Amazon.com and have noticed that all the reviews say that the dvd and tape have been grossly edited. I want to have the original and if someone is willing I would gladly pay for the tape and shipping for a copy of the unedited version of A Muppet Family Christmas. Please reply to this thread or email at kimory@msn.com. Thank you.

    Fish'n'Wolfe has an excellent tape trading page and he can make you a copy of the unedited MFC. If you can't find him anywhere, check the Member List. I hope this info helps!

    I e-mailed you amiki chan, I only can offer a VHS copy. I highly recommend David for trading. Having a DVD copy would be better than VHS. E-mail me and let me know what you decide.
