As I reported earlier, "The Muppet Show" is coming to DVD in season box sets this year. Today The Muppet Holding Company announced some exciting news on the subject. Disney has stated that the DVD of The Muppet Show's first season will be released on August 9, 2005 -- the same day that "The Muppets' Wizard of Oz" hits DVD . Disney plans on releasing "The Muppet Show: First Season - Special Edition" on a fully loaded 4-disc DVD collection for just $39.99. You can pre-order the set directly from Disney through the Muppets website (or by clicking here). More details on this awesome set (and information other upcoming Muppet DVD projects) are planned for release very soon. I'll keep you all posted as the rest of the details surface. Be sure to mark your calendars for August 9th, as two great Muppet titles will be coming to DVD.
