    I've got all of the "Honeymooners" Lost Episodes DVDs, so I thought it was time to put the old VHS tapes on eBay. I compared the DVDs to the tapes to make sure I didn't still need any tapes to maintain a complete collection, and I was disappointed to find 2 episodes that aren't on DVD: "Halloween Party for the Boss" (which is a remake of "Halloween Party" from DVD #8) and "Manager of the Baseball Team" (which is a remake of "Manager of a Baseball Team" from DVD #10).
    Does anybody know if MPI has any plans to release these on DVD? I kind of doubt it, since they haven't announced it (that I can find). Also, it looks like they planned the releases so that they could fit all of the DVDs into 6 4-disc boxed sets.
    This reminds me of the "Twilight Zone" DVD situation, when they originally skipped a couple of episodes. Image made it right by releasing an additional volume. I hope MPI does the same.

    Weren't they going to start putting out some of the later color sketches that were part of Gleason specials?

    Later, they did actual reunion specials.
    I do have the 1976 reunion special but that's the only one I've tracked down. Wasn't the last one about 1978?
