    I would like to see the season box sets continue with "The Muppet Show: Season 3", "Fraggle Rock: Complete Fourth Season" and "Sesame Street Old School: Volume 3"

    And going into the realm of total dream DVD - here my #1 dream DVD release: "The Tales from Muppetland Collection", a 2-disc set including "Hey Cinderella!", "The Frog Prince" and "The Muppet Musicians of Bremen"; plus "Tales of the Tinkerdee", "Land of the Tinkerdee" and "The Muppets on Puppets".

    And looking down the road, 2009 would be a great time to do an honorable 30th anniversary re-release of "The Muppet Movie" – you know, a two-disc fanfare loaded with extras (old and new) including the promotional special "The Muppets go Hollywood" and other goodies (similar to Disney’s "platinum edition" treatments given to many of their animated classics). And if any Muppet films could justify that kind of treatment it would be The Muppet Movie (and maybe if successful, similar revisitings of the subsequent films could follow). The past releases (both Columbia’s and Dinsey’s) have been really barebone and lack-luster offerings.

    Seeing Disney release the final seasons of "The Muppet Show" and doing a complete series release of "Muppets Tonight" is also a big desire of mine. And season or volume sets of "Bear in the Big Blue House" and "Muppet Babies" would be amazing too.

    I would like disney (and I've said it year after year AFTER YEAR!) to re-release "A Muppet Family Christmas" UNCUT! and a few "Best Of" Muppet Babies on DVD too! Oh.... and the "Bear in the BIG Blue house" christmas show, Berry Bear Christmas or somthing like that. I have that on VHS from Sony, but I would like it on disney dvd. :zany:

    ya know. I use to think that too! and then around 7 or 8 years ago when we were in Kmart I seen the CD and my dad asked me if i wanted that. and i sayed Yes! :) I thought it was somthing new and he was telling me that he rememberd seeing that on TV back in the day! (I also found out that day to, we were talking about Muppets, he sayed that he NEVER missed an ep of "the Muppet Show", him and his room mate. He also went to see all 3 Muppet movies at the movies and he had a few Muppet items, The Kermit plush, wich I own now and a "1982" christmas ball ornament too! thats also mine and I STILL hang it up every year on my own christmas tree!). ;)

    I remember Time Life doing some polling on Muppet Babies when they released the Best of Muppet Show collection years ago. I'm wondering if there are music rights issues with that? I couldn't think it would be anything else. Maybe the tape transfers look poor? But I don't think that would stop them. Seems like Muppet Babies could be quite the cash cow for Disney.

    Also, I've never understood why a better solution isn't found for music edits. My solution: Release a bargain-priced edited version of a special. Release an unedited version that costs more, but uses the same menu and interface. Slap a "Collector's Edition" sticker on the packaging notiting the difference and sell both!

    Ecconomical, easy and (even though it's a cheap way to go) fans get what we want - extra footage. Because when all is said and done, however sweet the packaging, I don't care if the discs come in a tin foil wrapper - I want the content!

    With the original FULL openings.

    Other than the fact they probably aren't giving it the attention it should (a common problem with Disney) it seems more like a film rights issue if anything. Poor tape transfers did not stop the 1980's TMNT show (several episodes from season 3 have many artifacts flickering away at the top of the screen). I would see the Star Wars bits intact, since Lucas film has a good history with the Henson and Disney companies. And Jeffery Scott would protest if Columbia didn't let them use 3 Stooges clips. Others are up in the air. And some of them can't be cut out without ruining the entire episode.

    Film rights - good point. Ya know, I wonder if many of the song writers and copyright holders with featured work in Jim Henson era projects are fussier now because they felt an "anything for Jim" sort of respect that they no longer hold since his passing? I have wondered that of many projects. :confused: :sympathy:

    I'd be worried if Columbia doesn't want to give them any of their clips, since most of them came from that company (as they were the distrubuting studio of the Muppets Take manhattan and others at the time).

    I would also laugh loudly if George Lucas wanted to splice in "special edition" clips of Star Wars in various epiosdes. He probably would.

    I wonder if it would be a good idea to write to Disney and ask if film clip right issues are what's preventing DVD releases of Muppet Babies, and to also request that if Disney releases Muppet Babies on DVD to remaster the original master tapes and not use syndicated prints (and also include the original 1980s Henson Associates logos instead of the later Jim Henson Television logos).

    Something that I just started to wodner. Did Muppet Babies ever include any clips owned by Disney? It would be ironic if there weren't ever any Disney-owned clips, but if there were, then we wouldn't need to worry about that. And I hope that all Sesame Street clips used don't have to be cut (Disney hasn't cut Sesame Street characters from Mupet DVD releases, and Sesame Workshop has been allowed to include Kermit on Sesame Street DVD releases).
