At this weekend's "Muppets, Music and Magic" event in New York, Henson writer and historian Craig Shemin announced that there is work going towards producing a DVD box set of Jim Henson's early TV work.
The DVD collection will be full of Henson's early experimental shorts, crazy commercials, television appearances, other rarities from the Henson vault and other retrospective goodies for Henson fans and historians to enjoy.
A DVD set of Henson's early shorts has been in the works for a while now (Craig started leading the project to bring Henson’s short films and commercials to a wider home audience after wrapping up his work on producing the bonus features for the 2005 "Special Edition" release of "Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas"). The team is working to compile the collection and secure all the legal clearances needed.
There have been estimates expecting the product to roll out sometime in the next year or so; and I will be sure to keep you posted with more details on this very exciting DVD box set and it's release and contentd as soon as I get the information.
