"The Muppet Show: Season Two" Cover Art

The preliminary cover art of the highly-anticipated and long-awaited release of "The Muppet Show - Season Two" DVD set has arrived! The four-disc "special edition" set will include all 24 episodes from the second season of "The Muppet Show", beautifully restored and remastered (along with a nice sampling of bonus features).

Last year fans had a chance to vote for their favorite choice of cover art from a selection of three unique designs, the cover that was selected by Disney (possibly based on the voting at Muppets.com) features Miss Piggy glamorously dressed in black and set against a blue backdrop (see below). Also the preliminary disc-art has been shown which features Kermit & Piggy (disc 1), Statler & Waldorf (disc 2), Bunsen & Beaker (disc 3) and Fozzie & Gonzo (disc 4).

Although Disney has not officially confirmed the exact release date for the set, it is said to be "coming soon" and I'm told that fans should expect the release before the end of the year. Rumors of a "late summer" release have been circulating and seem quite possible. I will, of course, let you know as soon as I hear anything more on the release date, disc details or features of this highly-anticipated DVD set.

This is great news! I loved the Muppets when I was growing up and I was thrilled to get Season 1 on DVD. To my surprise, my 9 and 7 year old daughters love to watch them too, even though they aren't familiar with the guest stars. Their particular favorite episode is the one with Vincent Price.

I'll certainly look forward to getting season 2 when it comes out. Thanks for the heads up!

FINALLY!

Man, I've been checking the MNF for months hoping for some word on this -- what a long and frustrating wait!!

Cannot wait!

Any chance you can post the Muppet Show trailer on the site so those of us who didn't get the Dinosaur DVDs can see it? Thanks!

I don't know about the video, but I can try to play the audio on the next MuppetCast...
