    Just trying to figure out the status of the various muppet films. Here's what I know of so far-can anyone confirm, correct, or add to this information?

    The Muppet Movie-Flipper WS/P&S
    The Great Muppet Caper-Flipper WS/P&S
    The Muppets Take Manhattan-WS/P&S on same side (note-is this a re-release after 9/11? I think that the WTC was on the original menu. Would there have been any other edits to the film? This is the version that I have, and I didn't notice anything odd).
    Muppet Christmas Carol-P&S Only
    Muppet Treasure Island-P&S only
    Muppets from Space-P&S only

    Any new information would be appreciated, expecially if there's something in the works that I missed.

    There is also a p/s version of the muppet movie out too. It came in a box of cereal last year here in the states.

    I know it has been discussed before, but it's a damn shame that Muppet Christmas Carol isn't WS.

    I'd also be a little careful with the word "Flipper". The term usually refers to disks that have the feature spread over both sides of the disk, like "Sleepers" or "Oliver".

    Did they redo the Muppets Take Manhattan disc? I never bought it since it was labeled as being in mono, even though this movie was released in stereo (even the CED videodisc is in stereo!)
