Walt Disney Home Entertainment: Release The Muppet tv Shows and Specials on DVD

    1. Petition by

      Open Vault Disney

Jim Henson’s popular Muppet characters have been enchanting fans of all ages since 1955 with beloved characters like Kermit the Frog, Rowlf the Dog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, and many others. Each of these characters have become major figures in modern popular culture.

In 2004, the Walt Disney Company purchased the rights to the Muppets, which include the characters and films, shows and tv specials featuring these beloved characters.  Despite DVD and (now) Blu-ray releases of the Muppet films and from 2005 to 2008, the first three out of five seasons of the franchise flagship series, The Muppet Show, being released, countless classic Muppet tv titles are still waiting proper DVD releases from Disney. We the undersigned wish to see these unreleased titles finally make it on DVD, including (but not limited to):

-The Muppet Show (1976-1981) – Final 2 seasons

-Muppet Babies (1984-1990)

-Little Muppet Monsters (1985)

-Muppets Tonight (1996-1998)

-Hey, Cinderella! (1970)

-The Frog Prince (1971)

-The Muppet Musicians of Bremen (1972)

-The Muppets at Walt Disney World (1990)

- The Muppets Celebrate Jim Henson (1990)

Mr. Willowby’s Christmas Tree (1995)

Regardless if it is through the more preferred method of a standard retail DVD, as were the first three seasons of The Muppet Show, or simply via the DVD-on-Demand program, we feel the excuses for denying fans access to these vintage titles must come to an end, especially with the recent success from the 2011 Muppet film and upcoming film The Muppets…Again!

There is a strong fan base for these titles and we are ready to demonstrate with our pocket books how beloved these titles still are, if we are given the opportunity. Thank you.
