Possible TMS Season 1 DVD Art Surfaces

Possible cover and disc art for the upcoming "Muppet Show - Season 1" DVD box set is surfacing on the web. The box is a simple Kermit inspired work of art and has a simple yet classy nostalgic feel. The discs (which feature Piggy, Gonzo, Fozzie, and Animal) show a single character per disc behind a red stripe set on a yellow background with The Muppet Show logo.

I have been told by someone working on the set that the data and features for the discs was approved and is locked in, but the artwork has not been totally pinned down yet. Several suggestions have been created and rejected for the case/box/disc art and packaging. The DVD team is currently scheduled to approve the final artwork sometime this week, and the official announcement should be out soon with all the release details (along with final package art).

This design may very well be what we see in stores on August 9th, but we could just as well see something totally different. Don't assume just yet that this is the final art, but it is indeed one of the looks that the team is considering. We'll have to wait a little longer to see for sure what the final set will look like, but since this art work is popping-up on many other sites, and I hear that it is the team’s most likely pick, I though I would share just a glimpse of what the sets may look like. Enjoy.

That is one mighty cool looking cover, IMO.

I'm loving the cover art.
The disk art? Not so much.

Meh, I don't care what the discs look like. It's what's ON them. :)

Amazing cover, too. Very classy.

Greg, have I mentioned you're my new favorite person? ;)

Cover art is great. Disc art... I wish they'd used Season 1 pictures of the muppets. Fozzie looked a whole lot different back then...

I love the box art it is great. I really like it and can't wait to get the set on my shelf (especially if it looks like that)

As for the disc art, I have to say who cares. The disc are either hidden in the box or hidden in my dvd player. I never see the discs for more than 3-seconds and could really care less what they look like. As long as I know which side is the top, I don't really care what's one them.

I don't like any of the art.

They should have a group photo of all the muppets on the cover, and on the discs there should be pictures of the characters as they appeared back then.

Just my opinion, that's all.
