    I just skimmed really quick-like through the thread. I bought it the first day it came out and I don't regret it at all! Granted I don't really remember an entire episode, much less every skit. I think we should just be glad they're releasing vintage Muppets. Maybe the cut songs will be on future season sets? I think we should be happy with what we get. Seems us Muppet fans aren't ever happy with anything now-a-days. :sympathy:

    Do you happen to know whether Weird Al Yankovic actually wrote that song parody or if the Simspons writers did? It didn't appear on his most recent album, which was released after this episode aired, so I;m not sure if it's because he didn't write it (Weird Al once performed a song on Square One TV called Patterns, but he didn't write or produce it so it wasn't ever on any of his albums) or it it sounds out of place on a Weird Al album or what.

    I always knew that was supposed to be a parody of that song. I know he also tried the Beverly Hills theme with several different songs before Money for Nothing (commentary from the UHF DVD).

    But besides the point, I still horribly want this. But could we expect more from a Muppets DVD release? Wasn't MFC on vhs and DVD's ruthlessly cut too? You know, the complete deletion of the Sleighride number, making the snowman's appearance random and nonsequitor? I'm glad they had half the songs they DID get the rights to. I mean, I have no problem with the artists that own their own songs, but the greedy recording corporations and rich people who buy up rights to stuff so they have it.... that's why I'm upset.

    I was watching the Avery Schreiber episode with the Muppet Morsels on, and they mis-inform the audience! When they mention during the closing act with the weird song that the little aliens up front are the Baby Koozbanes, they mis-inform by saying the female/mother is in the background. That was the MALE Koozbanian.

    Also, isn't there an "e" after the "kooz" and before the "bane?" Koozebane?
  5. MrsPepper Active Member

    Well, there WERE alot of typos in the muppet morsels, and Koozebane isn't exactly the easiest word to spell. ;) I have no clue which way is the proper way.

    miss imfor( i mean typos)

    I watched the whole set and enjoyed it then I watched it with the morsels on. they were wrong on a lot of stuff but on the clip that had Fozzie Bear :o and Miss Piggy :mad: ,with other muppets, perfoming the Blue Danue. it showed something that I had not noticed before. it reveiled John Lovelady's head . (he was a peformer durring the first season) Did any catched that?
  7. minor muppetz Well-Known Member

    I never noticed that before. At what point did it happen? Of course, there are a few pictures of John Lovelady on the internet. I think The Complete henson Database has a picture, and I have seen a picture of him on the set of The Great Space Coaster at a website maintained by Jim Martin. Also, John Lovelady can be seen at the end ofThe Muppet Show: Sex And Violence (he was performing Vanity and Rage).

    yeah i just looked and you do see it ( loveladys head )

    when a puppeteer is reviled

    No it was from the muppet show with kermit hosting. I am trying to remember but I have to watch it again.
    I have a question when will season 2 be out?:confused:
  10. Erine81981 Active Member

    I have the episodes that were cut intacted from downloading them from Emule. It's cool to see all the skits and songs intacted other then them missing them from the season set. I bought it and loved it no matter what. I just wanted to have the episodes intacted thats all. But I can't wait for seasone 2 to come out.
  11. minor muppetz Well-Known Member

    I never said that it wasn't from the muppet show with Kermit hosting. I was just pointing out that John Lovelady can be seen at the end of Sex And Violence, along with the other performers.
  12. Gorgon Heap Active Member

    I was told that was Eren Ozker's head.

    David, what's the proper spelling of Koozebane? Did they misspell it on the DVD, or have I been misspelling it all my life?
  14. Gorgon Heap Active Member

    You've got the proper spelling. That's how it's spelled in "The Muppet Show Book". It may also have been spelled out in "The Muppet Valentine Show" just prior to that sketch, tho I'd have to double-check.

    Thanks. I just wanted to be sure. So, the DVD is wrong and ...

    I'M RIGHT! (That NEVER happens!)

    The Muppet Show -Season 1 Wins TV-DVD Award!

    "The Muppet Show - Season 1" Wins TV-DVD Award

    In case you were interested, the winners of the 2005 TV-DVD Award have been announced. The award recognizes the best releases of TV shows on DVD in the past year. Studios submitted their top DVD titles for consideration in the 15 TV-DVD categories. The titles were then rated by expert judges, and their ratings were tallied. The top three TV-DVD titles in each category were then listed on an online ballot and voted upon by consumers on the Home Media Retailing website. After much calculation and deliberation, the winners were announced and the awards were presented (by Donny Osmond) at the 3rd Annual TV-DVD Conference held in Marina del Rey this week.

    "The Muppet Show – Season 1" won for "Best Children’s Series" (although many Muppet fans will argue the show is not just a children’s show). Disney/Buena Vista is delighted by the honor (of which “The Muppet Show” was their only win out of the 15 categories this year). I am told that a “Season 2” set is in the works, however no solid information on the release is available yet (I’ll keep you posted as soon as I hear anything).

    Also, Henson fan’s will be happy to hear that Lions Gate’s release of "Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars" on DVD won in the "Best Miniseries/Made-for-TV Movie" category. I'm sure everyone at Lions Gate and Henson are pleased with their award as well.

    Congratulations to all of the 2005 TV-DVD winners! And thanks to all the fans of the set who voted for the DVD, and the producers who made these great DVD products a reality.

    As I sit here with my 17month old son and rewatch the shows - I have only one real beef... You cant pick a particular scene in any particular show. It's an episode or nothing. But over all I love it and suprizingly, my kid LOVES it!

    Strange how Muppets tonight changing the format from Theatre to TV show kinda fizzled out... But I think if Big D decides to redo the show the THEATRE IS THE WAY TO GO!

    *** Any mispellings are due to lack of sleep***
  20. Fozzie Bear Moderator


    Yeah, I think the Theater is the way to go in a new show; but also have Kermit host again. I think that was one of the other problems, including lack of the classic Muppets in Muppets Tonight (however, I personally DO love that show).
