    I've been meaning to ask about something on this subject. Is there any store where I can purchase these without ordering from Timelife or any company? Timelife forgot to send me a copy of Volume 6. I got a DVD player for Christmas and I would especially like to find either a VHS or DVD that one somewhere. I would also like to get volumes 16-20 without reordering. How would I go about doing that?

    Volumes 16-20 don't exist yet. There's no way to get them. As things stand now, Time-Life will offer those first though. If you purchased vol. 6 from Time-Life and they left it out of your order or sent you another title by mistake, they usually happily do an exchange if you write them and thoroughly explain your situation. Fill out a customer service form on their site and they will help you out.

    Thanks for the advice. Maybe I'll look into that. Another thing I'm wondering about, and this is changing the subject, but is there any video store where I can purchase "Muppet Family Christmas?" My mom works as a teacher's aide and she was watching it with her students the other day and she said she wanted to see it again. I was thinking of buying it for her birthday. Any suggestions on this?

    Of the non-Time Life series, I have the following already on VCD (for trade):

    15. Paul Williams, Florence Henderson, Valerie Harper
    16. Candice Bergen, Marisa Berenson, Buddy Rich (first 2 mins. missing)
    17. James Coco, Phyllis Diller, Connie Stevens (this one has the Bert song)
    18. Avery Schrieber, Kaye Ballard, Mummenshanz
    19. Don Knotts, Zero Mostel, Rich Little
    20. Milton Berle, Judy Collins, Nancy Walker
    21. Lou Rawls, Petula Clark, Jaye P. Morgan (not burned yet but will if interested)

    (I know that Mummenshanz is on one of the dvd's but I missed it)
    Anyway these are the recent Canadian airings, with a few more on the way, hopefully.

    Well, no offense to you or anything, but most people who I've offered to trade with online haven't kept their word to send me something, so I wouldn't feel comfortable doing that.

    -Christopher Reeve
    -Johnny Cash
    -Loretta Lynn
    -Jean Stapleton (wasn't she instrumental in the future of TV Mom's?)

    Close Connection to Henson-
    -Candace Bergen
    -Paul Williams

    Fun Episodes-
    -Phyllis George
    -Glenda Jackson
    -Doug Henning
    -Gladys Knight (a personal favorite)

    We need more 1st season episodes-
    -Lena Horne
    -Sandy Duncan
    -Ben Vereen
    -Ethel Merman
    -Kaye Ballard

    Here's how I would put them
    Christopher Reeve/Candace Bergen/Paul Williams

    Ethel Merman/Kaye Ballard/Jean Stapleton

    Loretta Lynn/Johnny Cash/Lena Horne

    Gladys Knight/Ben Vereen/Sandy Duncan

    (What do you think of this, Disney? Time-Life Video was planning to use more DVD's. Perhaps you could bring the rights of the Muppetsto Time-Life, in case you don't have the rights to do a complete version, and tell Time-Life to immediatly bring the rights of the Muppets back to you. :rolleyes: : Okay?)

    I have been thinking about starting a thread like this for a long time. i have thought about this since I heard that Columbia was releasing the time-life DVDs and releasing an additional 5 volumes. I guess it's too late now, but this is what I would have included:

    Volume 16: Linda lavin, Phyllis George, and Zero Mostel.
    Volume 17: Shirley Bassey, Kaye Ballard, and Leo Sayer.
    Volume 18: Hal Lindon, Valerie Harper, and Kris Kristofferson & Rita Kooledge
    Volume 19: Paul Williams, Avery Schrieber, and Loretta Switt.
    Volume 20: Rich Little, Judy Collins, and Leslie Uggums.

    I'm sorry, you've got to prefer my list. Only two of the episodes on your list, Minor Muppetz, have generic intros. A lot of the specifiez episodes have some pretty memorable things to see to me.
  10. Dil

    Dil Guest

    Oops! I meant that only two of the episodes on your list, Minor Muppetz, have SPECIFIC intros. I miswrote my post.

    Anyway, here's a perfect list of The Muppet Show DVD's 16-20:
    (Perhaps Time-Life could think of the Did-You-Knows.)

    Volume 16
    *Charles Aznavour, Loretta Switt, Zero Mostel

    *Movie Mania: Star Wars (Beaker interviews a group of stars fighting)
    *From The Archives: Scooter

    (What do you think, (Disney)? If you don't have the rights about that, OK, here's the plan: You could bring the rights of The Muppets to Time-Life, then Time-Life would be honored to make volume 16-20 of The Best of The Muppet Show, and you would also ask Time-Life to bring you back the rights of the Muppets immediately after the volumes from 16-20 are released all done. After all, it's the 30th Anniversary of The Muppet Show. Would this be a deal?)

    What do you think of my perfect idea?

    If these were released, the first of these 5 volumes in my list which I would watch would be the 18th one.

    Sean Gaffney, I'm an american, and I know these guys.

    In fact, most of the episodes in your ideas in this thread are gereniciez (three in a row mostly in your ideas are genericiez) and generic intros have nothing to do with the episodes. Volume 13 should be the only Time-Life video which all three are genericiez. I would like it better if one of the three on each Time-Life Video from Volume 16-20 are specifiez.
    I hope you'll think it's perfect, if not, you'll have to deal with it, OK?

    Pedro: "Alright"

    Do you just mean the video rights? If Disney decided to give the distribution rights, I don't think Disney would be able to make Time-Life give/ sell it back after they are done. If Disney just gave Time-Life video rights, it would probably be temporary. Whenever a video company got the video rights to any Henson productions, it was always temporary. The current deal with Henson and Hit! lasts untill 2009. Since Disney owns the Muppets, their video rights can't expire unless Disney were to sell the muppets.

    Also, Time-Life might not be able to release those episodes uncut. Just because Time-Life could release an uncut Vincent Price episode while Disney couldn't does not mean that Time-Life can release any episode uncut. It's possible that some episodes were not released because Time-Life couldn't get the rights to certain songs (I don't know this for sure). I am surprised that the Paul Williams epsiode wasn't included. I'm also surprised that the Lorretta Switt episode wasn't included.

    Well, now that the season DVDs are out, I think I'll just wait for season 2. and 3. and 4. and Possibly 5.
  16. Dil

    Dil Guest

    OK, OK, last time.

    This way would be the extra: along with the Green, Dark Green, Yellow, Orange, & Pink colors, there should have been blue.

    Blue One # 1
    *Spike Milligan, Loretta Swit, Milton Berle

    Blue One # 2
    *Bernadette Peters, Zero Mostel, Alan Arkin

    Blue One # 3
    *Wally Boag, Carol Channing, Candice Bergen

    How about that?
  17. Dil

    Dil Guest

    Ugh! This isn't gonna work.

    OK. Can you tell me who could send me a mpeg video clip or video tape of the Spike Milligan Episode of TMS before The 3rd Season DVD comes out? That episode should be hilarious for me.
