    Yeah, anyone know anything about him?

    Besides Jim and Frank, does anybody know, who puppeteered these skits? I'm not that familiar with the early productions, but I'm guessing that Jerry Juhl would be one and Jerry Nelson (although I can't recognise his voice).

    Also, does anybody know how much was performed to a vocal track and how much was "live" vocals?

    And, in general, I can only say what everybody else has been saying: What a great DVD in an awful case. :)

    I finally got mine last night. I love it! I think it's a great look at the important history of the Muppets. I love seeing the evolution of some early favourite characters, as well as the evolution of Henson's style in general. I think I like this particular version of Manah Manah best of all. The SS version is closest to the original record (by Piero...um...I forget the last name) and the TMS version is indicative of someone who's been doing the skit for some time...but I like the loose feel of Jim's ad-lib's in this one. In general, I find it highly enjoyable. My daughter is watching it right now and seems very captivated by it!

    I believe the Muppets were working with pre-recorded tracks wherever possibly until the late 1960s. Jim did most of the voices, but I'm sure that wasn't always the case.

    Well, I'm a little late to this party, but I just got the Muppets Magic DVD and watched it last night with my 5 year old daughter. We both loved it. I'm just blown away by the creativity and the artistic daring involved. To do all these creative skits with special effects and tranforming puppets on live TV, that took guts and brains. My respect for Henson's genius just went up another notch. If you're a muppet fan and haven't picked up this DVD yet, put it on your wish list.

    Also, the article/review linked at the beginning of this thread was great.

    Just order it online. Then you don't need to run from store to store looking for it.

    The FYE's near here finally got them in, and they didn't used to have them, even when they first came out. You might check there, if there's one near you.

    The FYE(in a mall near my work),had 1 copy of Ed Sullivan Muppets on video.I've been looking for this since we announced it here at MC,a great while back. It's amazing to me to watch all of the sketches,to see how far the muppets have grown,how most of those sketches evolved to future sketches,and to watch Jim,Frank in their youth is astounding. Glad I found a treasure.:D

    I've got terrific alternative cover art for this if anybody wants.

    I'd just like to know of an effective way of printing for best quality results as well as the type of paper to use?

    I find I get the best results when I use the high quality glossy printer at work on the sly. But shh :D

    Thanks Humbug, is there a special template I need though to get accurate sizing and format or do I just print regularly?

    thank you so much, Phillip. I LOVE that idea! (does the "salute") That is so cool, I think I'm going to have to get the DVD from FYE.com.

    Thanks a lot Philip!

    Will the format be altered in any way if I save the files to my harddrive first in order to print elsewhere, or will it come out exactly the same?

    Also, what type of paper would you reccommed using for the insert?

    Thanks again!
