    I just realized that there are some videos that I forgot to mention, such as Imagine That and Let's Make Music. I'll put both of those between Let's eat and Elmos World: Happy Holidays. I also forgot to list Quiet Time. I'll put that after Happy healthy Monsters.

    I just want to see TMS finished off -- as complely as possible -- within the next couple years (hopefully, two a year: minimum) and then whatever else we can get. I would love JHH, but, unfortunately, I seriously doubt that we will ever see that in the way it was intended to be seen. Heck, the Jim intros would have to be butchered to eliminate all reference to the "Storyteller" segments. This I do not want. As much as I love the show, I don't want to see it butchered.

    Regarding the future TMS sets, I hope to see various specials that Disney owns the full rights to would fill the time in later seasons that S&V did for season 1. Then again, "The Muppet Valentine Special" would release a plague of boredom across the globe, so I'm not really sure if I would want that on there...

    But seriously: so long as it isn't "Muppet Oz: Special Edition!" with 10 more minutes of pointless footage or the same specials re-issued with less footage than before ("Muppet Family Christmas ultimate Mega Platinum Edition: now with 5% less segments!"), I'll be satisfied with whatever comes out. After all, it isn't like anyone is forcing us to buy everything. I can remember a time when all the Muppety video that I could get ahold of was the "Its the Muppets!" series (and it took me an extra couple years to find the "Monster Laughs..." volume) and the only merchandise were MTI Kermit dolls and the little bathtub toys that McDonalds put out for that film. We have it much better now than ever (at least when it comes to 'classic' video and merchandise releases) and I can't wait to see what pops up in the years to come. Who knows... remember how the Ed Sullivan DVD just kind of popped up out of nowhere?

    Gaah, there I go complaining about how things were 'back in the day' ...:sleep::boo:
