    I know there's another thread on this, but search is not working and I can't find the thread at the moment.
    These DVDs are available at Time-Life individually or as a collection, the best buy being the collection. You can get 10 DVDs with 3 episodes per DVD for $175. Add to that a 25% off coupon (over $40 off) that you can find at bargainflix.
    I ordered on Thursday and they arrived yesterday. The collection is a birthday present for my wife, so I haven't opened them, and wont be viewing them for about a week.
    When I placed the order online, the coupon code didn't take. Called immediately and they said they'd fix it. They haven't yet, so I called again and they said they'd put in a credit.
    With the 25% its a pretty good deal. BTW there on 2 coupons, one expires on Oct 20, and the other Oct 31.

    I have it on EXCELLENT authority that Muppet Treasure Island has already had extras shot for it, which seems to indicate a release sooner rather than later
    A Tim Curry Muppet (in pirate outfit) is included in some sequence or another

    Well, I ordered the entire Best of the Muppets, got it several days ago, but it was a birthday present for my wife, so we watched it for the first time tonight.
    I couln't see there was any volume numbering, so we picked one and watched it. Roger Moore, Edger Bergen, and Danny Kay. On our 32" Proscan, the picture was sharp, and the colors vibrant and realistic (wait a minute, this the muppets). The sound was clear, and all that you could expect from an old tv show.
    It's not a bad price at $175, and with the 25% off coupon I found at BargainFlix, a very good price.
    The set doesn't come in a boxed set, just the individual DVDs packaged together. Finally noticed on the main menu that we picked volume 10 out of 10. Than noticed some fine print on the spine indicating the volume numbers. I don't remember the muppet shows well enough to know if they're numbered chronologically.

    The episodes are random, but yes, the volume numbers are on the spine.
