    Speaking of which, I was just watching Family Guy but I was only half listening, and they mentioned Fraggle Rock!! But I missed the context so I didn't hear the joke.. :smirk:

    Fraggle Rock was mentioned on the episode where Lois' aunt dies and Lois inherets her mansion...

    Long story short Peter bids $100 billion for a vase at an aution. So he tries to sell the mansion by saying it has historical backgrounds, and shows the comitee a rock and says it is where the pilgrims landed on Fraggle Rock.

    Yes I know I'm full of useless Family Guy knowledge so sue me I'm a sucker for an awesome show :flirt: , how do you think I got into Muppets? :D

    No, just "fraggle rock". I think he was talking about something, and said something along the lines of "it's like in Fraggle Rock." But like I said, I missed the joke.

    EDIT: I just looked it up. I cna't find the context but the line is, "And this is where the Pilgrims landed at Fraggle Rock." :excited:

    I used to remember seeing The Muppet Show on The Disney Channel back in 1992. They used to rerun it.

    i know right, I'm tired of seeing 600lb pound people, constantly eat like a freaking garbage disposal, and blame everyone around them, for not having the common sense, to lay off the tons of pizza hut pizza, and KFC chicken, that they freaking eat, like there is no tomorrow.and I'm tired of seeing pathetic drunk rich house wives , getting drunk, and picking fights with each other, and naked morons roaming the freaking jungle , like crazy people, who escaped from the mental hospital. plus the other useless reality show trash, that reeks havoc on TV now days.

    i wish that they would air reruns the Muppet show again, i would go back to watching Disney again, if they did. i don't see why they can't air the show, they own the muppets, so it shouldn't be a problem.

    I agree. It would be so much easier for me to see the episodes I never saw as a kid. The only thing I remember about the Muppet Show when I was a kid was from those compilation VHS tapes. I can't remember what the name of the tape was but it had the episodes with Vincent Price and Alice Cooper. I will never forget seeing Kermit with vampire teeth and biting Vincent Price on the neck. I also remember Kermit singing "Happy Feet".

    This might sound kind of silly but I have been hesitant to get the only Muppet Show seasons that have been released on Dvd because if I remember correctly they had to make cuts to the episodes because of licensing issues or something (or is that just season 1?) I know I probably should since it might convince Disney to finally clear up the licensing issues with seasons 4 and 5 and finally release those or is that just wishful thinking? I actually prefer the VHS tapes from Time Life Video because of the introduction by Brian Henson before each episode (or that might just be on the 25th anniversary VHS tapes from Columbia TriStar) Does anyone have those? I found a copy of one in a used bookstore once. It was one of the aforementioned 25th Anniversary Best of the Muppet Show tapes. As far as I can tell the episodes, skits, etc are complete on VHS and I'm hoping to find more Muppet Show tapes one of these days.

    Probably because they know people could record higher quality versions of seasons 4 and 5 and such.

    Nope. It was The Disney Channel that reran The Muppet Show. I remember watching it in the early 90's.

    A. What's the reason for replying to something from several months ago?
    B. Nickelodeon did re-run TMS.

    TMS was part of Nick@Nite, as were some other Muppet/Henson rarities in the early 90s, such as the Valentine pilot.

    Honestly, while this thread is might as well bumped....

    I dunno how often Disney allows Netflix to put on their TV shows (I know a handful of their movies are on there, or at least I think they are), but uh....

    Considering Disney has shown no interest in putting out seasons 4 and 5 on DVD, and since we're even lucky to have gotten 1-3 on DVD from them since Disney sucks donkey *** with putting out their shows on home media...

    why not just put it on Netflix?

    With Disney's new streaming service, I wonder if they will include any Muppet shows or movies. For that matter, I wonder if they'll have any TV shows. I know Disney's had movies on Netflix, but I don't remember them putting up any shows...

    I know Disney now owns Star Wars. And yes, The Star Wars episode of The Muppet Show was aired on The Disney Channel back in 1992. Here is the intro: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/246946598

    @BuddyBoy600alt That would be relevant except it was from a period when Disney owned neither Lucasfilm nor the Muppets, and it is a blatant recreation and not an original broadcast recording.
