    This looks an interesting DVD:-

    It's a great evening of comedy as Ed Sullivan presents Volume One of the many appearances of the Muppets on his show. Enjoy the antics of Jim Henson's famous troupe of furry comedians in some of their earliest incarnations.

    I just wondered what year these "earliest incarnations" date from.

    hmmm. very interesting indeed. I'm wondering the same thing. Is this already released? Has anyone seen it? We have some muppet afficionados on the forum so maybe one of them will chime in...

    Is this only available R2? Or is it also going to be available here in the states?

    I am really interested in this one!

    This is going to be an R1 disc as well, and is coming from SOFA Entertainment / Goodtimes. (Don't worry, SOFA owns the rights to the show, so it's not a bootleg/public-domain release.)

    I cannot seem to find this DVD to pre-order. Anyone have a release date, or more information? This one looks really cool!
    I usually use dvdpricesearch to find dvds, but this one is not coming up.

    Anyone have info?

    Well, I have finally found this DVD. Part of the problem is the name of it. Amazon has it as Muppet Magic, and buy.com has it as Ed Sullivan Presents Best of the Muppets Vol. 1.

    I found a great review at Muppet Central. They discuss the DVD pretty thoroughly. I just ordered it from buy.com, and I cannot wait to have it in my hands.


    The good news is the price. buy.com has it for $10.49.

    Hope this helps others.
