    I am so happy it is finally going to be released. It has been a long wait but will be worth it to have the complete shows uncut. :excited: I don't want summer to fly by too fast (I'm a teacher's aide on vacation) but, I can hardly wait for August 7th!

    I know i will be getting this set. It looks awsome and great. I would have loved to have seen "Muppet Morsels" aren't on here but cool to get to see all the episodes all uncut. And the all the speical features are neat too. I can't wait and i'll be getting this right when it hits the stands. (Just maybe i can go to Walmart and get it right when they put it out)

    Sweet Scorsese! Did you say UNCUT?

    Well, now we know why it took them 2 years to do this.

    Though i'd rather have seen the stuff they filmed for the first DVD in leu of the Muppet interviews.

    I wonder what the deal with the lack of morsels this time is. Could it be due to the various changes in management for the Muppets? Could that also be the reason that the back cover includes older photos this time?

    It also sounds odd that English Country Garden is included twice.

    I like the fact that the main menus are not only different than on the first set, but that there are two different types of menus. Maybe the next set will have different main menus on all four discs, maybe with Beauregard on disc 1, The Swedish Chef on disc 2 (would it be pushing it to recast Gladys for the main menus?), Lew Zealand on disc 3, and Scooter on disc 4.

    I would rather see Rowlf and Dr. Teeth on The Mupets on Mupets feature than pepe, Bobo, Johnny Fiama, and Sal. It's a shame that Scooter isn't in this feature. Ricky Boyd did such an impressive job as Scooter in The Muppets Wizard of Oz, and it's a shame that he hasn't performed Scooter since. I don't know if he just isn't available for the last few productions (A Green and Red Chrismas, this set, the last set, etc) or if the peopel in charge just haven't been wanting Scooter to be used.

    Muppet with a missing eye, do you mean "Something's Missing" if so yes it's on the Rudolph Nureyev episode.

    Oh, and yay for no cuts and the Muppet Valentine special!

    Or maybe he meant the Elton John epsiode, in which a background characters pupil is missing during Any Old Iron. That is on this set, too.

    Say Phil. Could you by any chance add more phots for the valentine special in the episode guide? Please?

    Yes, I'll try to get the Valentines page updated with new pictures later this week.

    By the way, if anyone has any particular questions about the DVD set that were not answered in the review, feel free to ask and I'll do my best to answer.

    Are the end credits a mixture of UK left-hand and US centred as per the first season set?

    Has the cow sound effect been left in at the end of the Julie Andrews episode?

    With regards to the Elton John episode UK spot(s), is there a fade to black between the two?

    What a joke - the UK skits have been included on the DVDs and yet the set ISN'T actually being released on Region 2 in the UK! Looks like I'm only ever going to have Season 1 sitting alone on my shelf as my DVD player and TV can't play NTSC.

    Shame on you Disney (and HIT for that matter as we're still not getting a Region 2 release of the Fraggle Rock Seasons) - it makes me so angry!

    RKUNKLER Well-Known Member

    The only reason you dont have Fraggle Rock is because HIT wants to see how the US version does in the UK. As for The Muppet Show you will get it.

    Sorry, but whats the valentines special?

    The Muppets did a Valentines TV special in 1974 which was also produced as a Muppet Show Pilot before the Sex & Violence Pilot.

    David French Well-Known Member

    Ummm...that isn't right at all. I think you'll find that TV shows are first released in their "home" region (for want of another word) first before it is released in other regions.

    I suspect the R2 and R4 versions will come out nearer the end of the year, if not the start of next year.

    It was a special recorded for Valentine's Day in 1974 that is considered a Pilot for what became "The Muppet Show". Check the episode guide section of this web site for more info.
