Muppet DVD Update

UltimateDisney.com has uncovered that the upcoming Special Editions of "The Muppet Movie", "The Great Muppet Caper", "The Muppet Christmas Carol", and "Muppet Treasure Island" are planned for release in November. The DVDs are planned to be beatiful rereleases of the classic films with a great collection of bonus features and more! I'll get you more details on these DVDs as they surface.

I was also told the "Jim Henson Retrospective" originally created and planned for release on "The Muppet Show Season 1" DVD was taken off the season 1 box set due to budget and space limitations (similar to what happened with the "Valentine Show" pilot). However I was informed that it is being held onto for one of the other upcoming Muppet DVDs (I don't know if it will be another season set of TMS or possibly "The Muppet Movie" DVD due out in November – but it should be released sometime soon).

And rememeber to pick up your copy of "The Muppet Show Season 1" and "The Muppets' Wizard of Oz" on DVD on August 9th.

And you saw that, according to the review on Jim Hill Media, the series pitch has had the end lopped off? Sheesh. F***ing Disney.

curious is the special editions wil include the special features (although they were few) already included on the original dvds, for example, the screen test on Muppet Movie, and the muppetisms, plus the commentaries on MTI and MCC. or any interveiws. Basically, is there any reason for fands to hang onto their original dvds?

Okay, I think I know the real reason why Kermit's line was cut. If you notice when Kermit said his line, the CBS logo was behind him. I guess since Disney owns ABC they had trouble to get the right to use the logo for a rival network. Same story for the ITV closings.
