    I'm not gonna beat around the bush with this one...here is my ultimat ewant list:

    *The Muppet show Live Gala(december 2001)
    *The Muppet q&a portions of Muppetfest
    *The 12 episodes of Little Muppet Monsters
    *The unaired pilot of the animated Scary Scary Monsters
    *The uncut episode of the Cosby Show 'Cliff's Nightmare'
    *A complete 2d scan of Muppet Vision 3D(non fan recorded)
    *A compilation of every single Muppet commercial in the last year(LJS, Dennys, Mastercard, We Are Family, Virgin Airlines, etc)
    *Nightline with Kermit and Fozzie

    that's all I can think of for now...if theres a JHC video archivist reading this, I have lots of rare celebrity potato chips to trade!

    Well, I have alot of what used to be on the MMW (Matt's Most Wanted) List, but, I'd still like these:

    Dog City - All Episodes
    Jim Henson Hour - Episodes I'm Missing
    The Oldies: You know...Sam and Friends, commercials, Jimmy Dean, etc. etc.

    ...I know the Pethick man can help, so hopefully I'll be able to work something out in the new year. :)

    I hope the same for myself. The UK Fraggle Rocks are a must-have for the hardcore Fraggle fans, I think. Speaking of which, if anyone has copies of RCA/Columbia volumes 5, 9 and 10, please contact me ASAP.

    I just thought of some Henson items that are impossible for me to find anywhere :

    Youth '68
    The Cube
    Hey Cinderella!
    1965 pilot version

    If anyone has these, please let me know.

    Hah, you wont find those anywhere my friend, trust me on that. I have spent endless days searching for the Cube (yes, literally days), and I have come to the conclusion that no one in the country outside of the Museums of Radio and Television and JHC (who donated the special to the museums) has this special. Though I didn't search as hard for Youth '68, I am fairly sure the results would be the same (though I believe PBS owns the rights to that, being it was an episode in a series thats name is totally escaping me). As for Hey Cinderella, I had no idea there was an alternate version from the one we all have...can you describe the differences?

    Actually, PBS wasn't involved in Youth '68. Both that and The Cube were "Experiments in Television", experimental television productions which originally aired on NBC.

    Oooooh! I just remembered something! One time in the Science Fiction Book Club, they had The Cube listed in their videos section! This was a while ago, unfortunately, right before I found out The Cube was a JHC production!!!!!!!!! ARGH!

    You might want to check out their website. I don't know it off hand, just search for the Science Ficion Book Club. If you find it, tell me!

    Well all I remember is that in the book The Works, in the chronology it says:

    1965 - Hey Cinderella! pilot taped
    1968 - Hey Cinderella! filmed in Toronto

    Confusing, no?
  15. Jeffrey Gray

    The Works mentions the pilot...it is not the same as the special, that's for sure...but The Works explains what the pilot was FOR also...

    I dont hear much props given to JH about this, but who else was doing truly edgy and experimental avant garde cinema and tv some 40 years ago? Like the Cube, Time Piece, etc. This of course is way before David Lynch and those MTV videos came along.

    I'd also love a copy of Muppetvision 3-D! It's not likely I'm going to be able to afford to go to Disney World anytime soon, but when I do in the far off future, I'm gonna see that three-hundred times! If not more.
