    Well, we sorta get Muppet Babies on DVD right now at your local Target.

    HERE IS A PIC OF GONZO'S
    http://mhohnstein.tripod.com/muppets/mbdvd.htm

    Located in the toy isle, where the stuffed animals are at.

    there are new stuffed muppet babies, they each come with a complete episode.

    Each character features a different episode, as follows:

    Gonzo: Baby Gonzo's video show
    Kermit: Daily Muppet
    Miss Piggy: Hyperactivity Book
    Fozzie: eight take away one equals panic

    Gonzo's episode has the parody of Star Wars(return of the Jedi, I think)

    it's not much, and only one episode, but if you collect muppets, you get a free episode.

    Holy cow -- has anyone purchased these that can verify whether or not the episodes are complete with the film clips and everything?

    I can verify. I purchased the Baby Gonzo specifically because it had the DVD with the Star Wars episode and yes, it has the films clips and all.

    It's funny watching "Muppet Babies" now that I'm older. The animation is so not up to par with today's standards but man it brought back a flood of memories!

    That is excellent, David. I really loved that show. Could actual stand-alone Muppet Babies DVDs be far behind or am I just a dreamer?

    With the Muppets being bought by Disney, maybe we might be seeing more muppet releases depending on the deal(If they get existing properties or not)

    Well, essentually Disney bought the original Muppets and that's it, stuff like Fraggle Rock weren't included, and neither was Sesame Street, but the thing is that I would bet that there are some distribution deals in place that will have to expire before Disney can really start to exploit the franchise.

    Great, more exclusive DVDs that aren't available in Canada.

    I couldn't send away for the free Jake 2.0 DVD... couldn't find the Donna Reed Show cereal-box DVDs anywhere... and there's no Target here, so no Muppet Babies for me!

    Sucks to be a Canuck.

    Please excuse my bitter venting...

    Here's hoping for a general release someday. I have little faith in Disney/Eisner though, to do right by the Muppets. I expect more All New! straight-to-DVD releases, than anything else.

    Man, that takes me wayyyyy back! I used to watched MB religously when I was 5 up to 9. I am not getting the disc though but its nice to have those shows on DVD for future generations.

    Hmmm. I wonder if my little niece would like the stuffed animals ... along with the DVD, of course. [​IMG]

    JohnS, out of curiosity, what company is listed on the DVD as having produced it?

    The Disney sale DID include the Muppet Babies, however.

    I suppose there's little chance for a Skeeter or Scooter doll?
