Muppet Show DVD season sets planned for 2005

By Phillip Chapman
November 22, 2004

At this weekend's "Muppets, Music and Magic: Jim Henson's Legacy" event in New York, Henson writer and historian Craig Shemin announced that Disney will be releasing season by season box sets of "The Muppet Show" on DVD.

Craig Shemin, Jerry Juhl, Jerry Nelson, Dave Goelz, Carroll Spinney, Michael Frith and other Henson employees and fans were interviewed for bonus material on the discs at the event on Sunday.

It was announced that the season box sets would begin arriving in the summer of 2005. That estimate may be a little optimistic. Late 2005, early 2006 may be a more realistic target date.

Nonetheless, this is long-awaited news for Muppet fans. Hopefully, Disney will release the episodes uncut with UK skits and the original first season openings. Bonus material like "The Muppets Valentine Show", "The Muppet Show: Sex and Violence" and "Of Muppets and Men" would be excellent special features.

Time-Life released 45 of the 120 Muppet Show episodes on video and DVD in 2000 and 2001. "The Muppet Show" was in syndication around the world for five seasons from 1976-1981.
