    I just wanted to know who owns Muppet From Space. I think it's Tri Star/Columbia, but I wanted to know for sure. Thanks! :)

    Yes, Sony still owns MFS and TMTM. Becuase they were the ones that distributed it when it came out
    I wished Disney would own those.. I'd much rather see it in the hands of Disney.

    I disagree. Disney way overcharges. MFS and TMTM have long been $5 dvds under Sony. Under Disney they'd continue their tradition of ripping off parents in this struggling economy by charging $20 or more for dvds(not even blu ray)

    Also I really do not care for the Disney rerelease of The Muppet Movie. Other than the Pepe thing added, it seems to be missing some of the great stuff from the original release. All Disney cares about is squeezing as much money as possible from customers, because they know they can.

    I wish I got the original Sony The Muppet Movie, it had some rare footage that SHOULD have been on the Disney release. Even the rereleases of MCC and MTI, stuff they already released lack stuff from the previous releases (though I'm glad they're in wideframe).

    I agree... getting MFS and MTM cheap with some small features (though I wonder why MFS has no deleted scenes other than ones that were in blooper form) was more worth it. MFS is much better to watch with the MST3K style commentary (even though its flickery).

    The fact that we didn't have to wait for the new film to hit Blu Ray also proves Beaker's point. Not that I care about BR one way or another.

    I have a tape version, and a disc. I actually enjoy this movie a lot more than most muppet fans. I was 4 when it first came out though.

    I KNOW, THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT I THINK!! The only reason I have MFS on DVD (and am planning to get MTM too) is because of the genorous prices they have.
    Let me do the math, $5.00 for Muppets From Space, 88 minutes long + live video commentary + outtakes + music video = a really really good deal. Same goes for The Muppets Take Manhattan, 94 minutes long + Jim Henson Interviews + Muppetisms = awesome deal. My parents let me buy those films because of the generous realisitic prices Sony puts on those films, letting parents loosen their wallets a bit to buy cheap high quality entertainment for the whole family. Now compare that to Disney. SIGH, The Muppet Movie, 94 minutes long + pepe profiles for $20 = FAIL! Same goes for GMC and MTI, (MCC had some ok bonuses on their). Really if MFS and MTM were owned by Disney, I could only imagine what they'd do to them.

    MUPPETS FROM SPACE (DVD; 2005 KERMIT'S 50TH EDITION)
    • FEATURE FILM
    • BONUSES = BACKSTAGE DISNEY PEPE'S PROFILE: RIZZO THE RAT WHO SMELLS A RAT
    • Bonus Trailers
    • PRICE = $19.99
    The Muppets Take Manhattan (DVD; 2005 Kermit's 50th edition)
    • FEATURE FILM
    • Backstage Disney Pepe's Profile = Rowlf, the 'ol brown eared piano playing sensation
    • Bonus Trailers
    • PRICE = $19.99
    Disney really loves ripping off "us" DVD owners, stripping all the bonuses like the camera test or MTI commentary and replacing it with a cheesy 5 min. pepe short, and doubling the price! Nowadays it's even worst, MMW will come out on DVD with a $20 price, but have 1 bonus, REALLY! Most new DVDs are $14.99, and they are chockful of commentary, deleted scenes, DECENT COVER ART, behind the scenes featurettes and more. THANK GOD MTM and MFS are under Sony or the only way I could afford muppet DVDs was to buy them at thrift stores or save my money up for like half a year.
